    Moderate - Not as hard as I was expecting it to be. The only tricky trophies were Pacifist and Foxiest Of Hounds but mainly Pacifist cause of that annoying glitch but still managed to get both of them on my first playthrough and the rest are fine despite most of them being missable.

    I put easy, even though I need a 2nd playthrough.
    Sure you can do it in one playthrough, but you need to plan you enhancement upgrade path carefully so everything is attainable in that one playthrough.
    Especially when it comes to getting all the 29 needed E-Books during the one playthrough [that's what I missed], as you NEED the Icarus Landing ability to drop down a shaft around the beginning of the Tai Young Medical chapter to get one, otherwise it's unreachable.

    I would also suggest getting the Typhoon upgrade 2 as soon as possible, as even on hard difficulty, you can beat all bosses except the last in under 15 sec using it, the last boss use the laser rifle.

    The rest of the game you can do under stealth/hard and only using the Tranquilizer rifle [NO Other weapon is needed, so sell or leave and use space for health stuff]
    Also you NEED to get the Wall Punch Through ability, if only for use in one particular place that has a security camera watching the only exit which needs to be hacked to open: PICUS chapter I think it was [If you use a EMP grenade to knock this camera out the game considers this equal to setting off a alarm, so no Foxist of the Hounds trophy] The easy way to beat this is to Sneak under the camera into the room behind it, there is a weak wall you can punch through, thus avoiding using a heap of health batteries to hack the door under camouflage so the camera doesn't see you.
    Great game.

    Moderate: To me this is in between Moderate and Hard (but closer to Moderate, hence the vote)
    The trophies are very straight forward but there are 3 trophies that might give trouble.
    Finding the XP books is hard if you don't explore (a guide will really help) I found most without a guide.
    Beating the game without killing anyone isn't too bad if your careful as the game rewards you for being stealthy as apposed to the Rambo approach.
    Hard difficulty isn't too hard (unless your the Rambo type) since you should be playing Stealthy anyway.
    The only trophy that actually gave me trouble though was Foxiest of Hounds as I had to do another playthrough for it. I was pretty sure I never set off any alarms but on the second playthrough, to be safe, I just made sure I never got spotted

    Overall, a great game I would highly recommend.

    This game is a 3 if you do everything correct. Which I did. But when you feel you screwed at some point, then you might have a 4 or a 5. GOODLUCK

    Moderate
    Wanted to get all the trophies in one playthrough but i somehow messed up Foxiest of the hounds no idea how and had to start a new playthrough just to get that plus there's no stat tracking to see if you have set off any alarms or anything like that so if u messed up u only know at the end of the game. every other trophy other than foxiest of the hounds is easy

    I rate the game moderate. You need a fair amount of skill to achieve Foxiest of the Hounds (I achieved all three on my first run, did another one for cleanup + ebooks). This is easily my favourite game I've played thus far, though the AI is the worst I've ever seen.

    Easy.

    The reason I did not vote very easy are 1.) some skill books are well hidden, e.g. under a box 2.) there are many hidden trophies so you have to experiment a lot with possible results of your actions unless of course you take a guide. With a guide I'd certainly say very easy. My vote is based on my experience, I played the game "just for fun" on my first run on easy difficulty and got most of the trophies already. Some misc trophies and the skill book trophy I got on my second run that was Deus Ex. However with the experience from the first run I could easily master all situations and hardly noticed the difference in difficulty. I thought the boss fights might be a bit of a challenge but when you do the side quests, hack a lot and take out all enemies non leathily you'll have a lot of praxis kits till first boss and can easily take three to purchase and upgrade the taiphoon. Two charges of this plus two or three grenades and he's history. The same is with the second boss and the third boss can be dispatched with a takedown to end the fight within three seconds. The final boss can easily be dispatched with the laser rifle (plus cloak) within under ten seconds so there wasn't any challenge in Deus Ex for me. Great, great game and story btw.

    4 hard.

    Everything but Foxiest and Pacifist are easy to achieve. Those two in conjunction with some of the game's design make it a Hard. I could see it being a 3 Moderate if you are using a Guide/video walkthrough.
