Excerpt: Adam Jensen, the perfect cyborg, is wrestling with a vending machine. It’s not refusing to serve him orange drink, it’s refusing to fit through a door. He is, as I play him, the worst chief of security in the world.
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.
Summary: Human Revolution is faithful to the style of game fans of the original loved, though familiarity with it is not required. A strong plot, decent shooting mechanics, and lots of player freedom make this well worth your time.
Summary: Choice. Many games provide the illusion of it; fewer deliver it in any meaningful way. Deus Ex: Human Revolution is one of those few: a first-person shooter/stealth/espionage/role-playing hybrid that allows you to overcome obstacles as you see fit.
Pros: Varied mechanics allow you to accomplish missions the way you want, Evocative futuristic atmosphere, Engrossing story with themes that resonate, A long adventure that invites replay
Cons: Poor boss fights remove the element of choice, Long load times, dated facial animations, and other technical drawbacks, Weak AI detracts from both the shooting and the stealth
Excerpt: Deus Ex: Human Revolution (Xbox 360 , PS3 , PC) is a global conspiracy thriller set in a near future world where replacing human body parts with high-tech prosthetics is a violently controversial new trend.
