Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Staff Review
11 September 2011
Excerpt: Longtime fans could be forgiven for being wary of Deus Ex: Human Revolution . It’s a prequel to a series that ended rather decisively, the last outing proved somewhat disappointing, and the original’s complexity might not sell in today’s market.
Excerpt: Fortunately, I haven't actually played very much of the original Deus Ex , so I'm coming at Human Revolution pretty well cold, and it's not bad at all. It's a nicely varied game that rewards exploration and molds itself pretty seamlessly around the player, with a solid plot and a well-built and...
Summary: In Deus Ex: Human Revolution you play Adam Jensen, a security specialist, handpicked to oversee the defense of one of America's most experimental biotechnology firms.

Excerpt: Deus Ex: Human Revolution has been in the works for quite some time now. Announced way back in 2007 before Eidos had been purchased by Square Enix and billed as a prequel set 25 years before the events in the first game, many people have found themselves wondering as the title came close to release...
Excerpt: We live in a society obsessed with perfecting the human image. These shoes will make you run faster, this drink gives you more stamina and this surgery will make you irresistible to the opposite sex.
Conclusion: It has its issues, but it's the world, the setting, and the story that make Human Revolution great. These aspects of the game are so solid that I happily waded through the game's low points in search of the next hackable terminal or other flavor-filled bit of dialogue or text.
Excerpt: delivered an intriguing plot along with great RPG mechanics and interesting choices inside a first-person shooter framework, and it's kind of a tragedy that even though this game is absolutely beloved by most PC gamers, it didn't spark off any kind of genre-bending revolution.
Conclusion: Unlike lots of other players, my first encounter with Deus Ex did not happen on the PC. It happened two years after the PC release when it was ported to the PlayStation2. Although Deus Ex on the PS2 didn’t look great, it was my first time experiencing a game that focused on choice.
