Ignoring the Gamestop fiasco, how is the Onlive copy of the game?

I'm considering picking up this game for the PC to save a few bucks, but my computer isn't that great, meaning I'd likely play Onlive if I couldn't fiddle around with the settings to get good performance. Anyone have any problems with the Onlive version? Does it run smoothly? And does it have controller support? Thanks!

It does have controller support and runs smoothly. It seems to have the stuttering every PC version has but I am sure they will fix that soon. The only thing you'll have to get over is the video quality can be a little sub-par, but if you want to know what im talking about load OnLive up and try a trial. If you can handle the quality, i'd buy it.

I can't speak for Deus Ex: Human Revolution specifically, but OnLive is a pretty stunning services. I can play games away from home on my underpowered (for gaming) 11" MacBook Air and do so almost flawlessly. We're talking about a platform that doesn't even support 90% of the games OnLive offers, yet because it is only video being streamed to my system I can play to my heart's content.

It's excellent.
