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: 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.

31 August 2011
Excerpt: I have to admit that I missed out on the original Deus Ex . It came around at a time when my gaming budget was low and first-person shooters were quite far off my radar, and so the game came and went without me taking any notice.
Conclusion: Concept: A prequel story to the classic cyberpunk series that embraces player choice
Graphics: The color yellow shows up everywhere, including outlines, menus, and the overall tint of the environments. Facial animations are robotic, but the world is gorgeous.
