    Here's a recent review:

    "Neofeud is a spectacular gumbo of cyberpunk goodness. The story focuses on an ex-cop turned social worker and one action-packed day in a futuristic dystopia. The setting uses royalty and robots to stand in for the oligarchy and ethnicity in our present day society. There is plenty of on-the-nose pontificating, but that's balanced out by the fact that the game is also unabashedly ridiculous. It splashes around copious references to real-world events that in other games would come off as pretentious, but in Neofeud it's all remixed and smashed together with a wacky irreverence. It never feels like "here's your obligatory nerd culture set-piece, now all go pat yourselves on the back for being clever enough to notice it", it just feels punk.

    I have to point out that you shouldn't go into this expecting a polished AAA game, or even a big studio point-and-click. The dialog is overwrought, the voice acting is uneven, the character development is implausible and there are several continuity errors. But the puzzles are decent and the music is cool. The whole package is so joyous that it's easy to overlook the flaws. Then you get to the credits and realize that pretty much everything is done by just one guy. That is some DIY ethic right there.

    The only thing i found a little uncomfortable in the game was the choice of accents for certain characters. I get that get using AAVE and street slang for the downtrodden bots was probably a choice meant to drive home the parallel to racism in America, but i felt that was undermined a little bit by the accents of the Chinese and Indian representatives later in the game. Then again, the original Deus Ex had some pretty hokey accents too at times and that was still a fun game.

    This is a fun game too."
