Excerpt: Eleven years ago, now-defunct developer Ion Storm released Deus Ex and made video game history.

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
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.

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.
