Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Game Over Online
2 September 2015
Excerpt: The problem everyone's going to have when discussing Human Revolution is that apparently, when somebody brings up Deus Ex these days, every PC gamer is required by cultural more to face Texas and genuflect.
Excerpt: To say the 2000 release of Deus Ex changed the face of gaming might sound hyperbolic if it weren’t true. Warren Spector’s cyberpunk effort followed in the footsteps of his equally worthy System Shock series, smoothly melding the visceral feel of the first person shooter with the character...
Pros: The entertaining cyberpunk story, Extremely polished everything, Open ended gameplay and maps
Cons: No multiplayer modes, Easy to abuse enemy AI, Minor control issues
Excerpt: Deus Ex: Human Revolution is the third installment into the Deus Ex series and is a prequel to the original. Your character, Adam Jensen, is an ex-SWAT security chief for Sarif corporation which specializes in biomodifications.
Pros: Superb story, graphics and soundtrack; lots of choices available to the player including multiple endings.
Cons: Boss battles seem out of place and can be really tough if you have not beefed up your character.
Excerpt: The Missing Link, the first piece of DLC for Deus Ex: Human Revolution , does exactly what its name implies: fills in the gaps left in the endgame of HR's plot. While Deus Ex: Human Revolution left Adam stowed away on a ship in search of a team of kidnapped scientists, The Missing Link starts with...
Pros: Exciting extended ending that picks up where you left off from in Deus Ex: Human Revolution. While there’s a boss, he can be defeated stealthily or non-lethally.
Cons: While I enjoyed every minute of it, there’s only 5 hours of extended game play here.
Excerpt: Deus Ex: Human Revolution is the story of a man who gets blown apart, and then put back together again. Viewed from another angle, it's also the story of Eidos Montreal taking on a decade-old franchise - one created by Ion Storm at the turn of the millennium - and attempting to make it their own.

How Do All Those Augmentations Run Off of One AA Battery?
30 December 2011
Excerpt: As a huge fan of the original Deus Ex , I've been eagerly awaiting this new entry to the series since it was announced. All things considered, it ended up a more-than-respectable title that falls in line with the source material, I enjoyed it, and I recognize it as a fine effort.
Pros: Earning the Pacifist and Foxiest of Hounds Achievements in one run.
Cons: Constantly dealing with low energy for augmentations.
Excerpt: Few video game franchises command such a large cult appeal like Deus Ex, which managed to impress legions of role-playing fans back in 2000, with its great gameplay, variety of missions and, most of all, because you could play it in a variety of ways, from a stealthy, non-combatant, to a big,...
Pros: + A worthy successor to Deus Ex, + Great design, + Deep role-playing mechanics
Cons: - Some character designs are low quality, - A.I. glitches may appear
