Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut
12 December 2013
Excerpt: Imagine being augmented with biotechnology to improve what you can do… this is exactly what Deus Ex: Human Revolution is all about, but I would prefer if we kept it in the game for now. In the meantime, let’s take a cyberpunk journey for some augmented action, hacking and sneaking.
Summary: In the year 2027, mankind is about to enter a new era of self-propagated evolution. Technology that blends man and machine has allowed "augmented" humans to run faster, think quicker, grow stronger, and rise above their genetics to be the person they want to be -- provided they have a lot of money and don't mind requiring lifelong medication to ensure their bodies don't reject the enhancements.
Summary: The first real piece of DLC has been released for the excellent Deus Ex: Human Revolution -- weapons and skins don't count -- and at a bit of a hefty price. Like Mass Effect 2: Lair of the Shadow Broker , The Missing Link adds some new action that fits into the game's universe, while offering you a lot of what you've seen before. The question most fans will ask themselves, however, is whether or not it is good enough .
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 progression and customization elements of role-playing games.
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
Conclusion: Deus Ex Human Revolution tient ses promesses et offre aux joueurs qui l'attendaient un titre hors du commun sur lequel ils risquent de passer bon nombre d'heure. Les développeurs ont installé des bases, des environnements, des PnJ, une histoire, à vous de lier tous ces points à votre façon. La grande liberté offerte repose sur une belle richesse de contenu, que vous n'aurez sans doute pas l'occasion de découvrir au cours d'une seule partie.
Pros: Une vraie richesse de contenu, Une liberté de mouvement et de choix quasi totale, Equilibre entre FPS et RPG, Un scénario captivant, La durée de vie, Un héros très charismatique, Une prise en main facile
Cons: L'IA, Un doublage en français en demi-teinte
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. In both cases, you'd be forgiven for being pessimistic in your expectations.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution - The Missing Link DLC Review
16 November 2011
Excerpt: The first piece of DLC for Deus Ex: Human Revolution wipes the slate clean. It's an opportunity for players who were disciplined in a certain style of play to acquaint themselves with another. For those who passed through the game as a shadow, it's a chance to crack out the guns and start causing a ruckus. For those that killed everything in sight, it's a chance to take it down a notch and try out the more elegant stealth side of the game. Or not. Whatever.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut review: the perfect augment for the Wii U
16 November 2011
Excerpt: When GameZone's Michael Splechta reviewed Deus Ex: Human Revolution back in 2011 , the game was not without its faults. Boss fights could pretty much only be tackled one way, regardless of how you chose to play the game. That said, we praised the game for “its immense replay value, fleshed out storyline, interesting characters, multiple endings, and tons of choices,” as it earned a 9.0/10.
Excerpt: The next time you come home from work in a bad mood because you ended up going 30 minutes over your shift or because an afternoon snack got jammed in the vending machine, spare a thought for Deus Ex’s Adam Jensen. As head of security for a biochip manufacturer, he gets sent down to the labs to investigate a commotion and ends up getting his arms blown off and then thrown threw a wall by a bionically enhanced mercenary.
