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 engaging near-future world. You'll probably enjoy it.
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. But when a black ops team breaks in and kills the scientists you were hired to protect, everything you thought you knew about your job changes.
Conclusion: Deus Ex is out right now and should not be missed by fans of the RPGFPS genre, the game is available on Steam, PlayStation 3 and XBOX 360 right now and is one for the books; let’s keep our fingers crossed for another Deus Ex game to be announced in the near future.
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. Normally that’s a free space and a commercial set to rock music away from bad sequel Bingo. Let’s not kid ourselves, the real issue surrounding Human Revolution has nothing to do with transhumanism or the nature of man.
Conclusion: The depth, the detail, and the genuine choice and variety of this game all bring to mind the best parts of DX 1. The slickness of the UI, quality of the design, and overall execution all serve to bring it into the modern age. Spectacular, engaging, and fun.
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. The world of Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a futuristic look at where society is headed, and it's a grim one.
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. Just like many other players, I feel in love with the game hoping for another one to feast on. When Deus Ex: Invisible War was released, I felt satisfied, but something was missing..
Deus Ex: Human Revolution: A Sequel We Always Wanted
23 August 2011
Excerpt: Eleven years ago, now-defunct developer Ion Storm released Deus Ex and made video game history. The original title cast players in the role of JC Denton, a nanotech-augmented agent with the United Nations Anti-Terrorist Coalition (UNATCO) circa 2052. The game's plot is a fusion of classic conspiracy theories and a referendum on what it means to be human.
Pros: Sequel to well-loved classic, Open-ended puzzles, It's Deux Ex, Solid story
Cons: Long loading times, Inconsistent voice acting, No Skull Gun
