So much potential bogged down by a formulaic approach

Summary: I had no idea that Deux Ex was a first-person-shooter before I installed it. Not only do I think that FPS video games have been done to absolute death, I also believe that they will be the death of video gaming. In fact, it should be illegal to own or produce FPS games from this point onwards. THEY. ARE. ALL. THE. SAME. On top of this I find it just a bit disturbing that millions of gamers all over the world take pleasure in sniping so many bad guys.
Good game, but not as good as the hype makes it out to be

Summary: Deus Ex: Human Revolution does a lot right, and in those regards, is fun and an enjoyable experience. But sadly, it suffers from having a bad ending, little affect being seen by the choices you make, and a few others that don't necessarily hinder the game. Review contains spoilers. I'm a big fan of story and plot, and even when it comes to video games I demand a good one. And while the presented story is fine, the extra tidbits are very blunt.
very good...but NO REPLAY !!! - 1 play and u start over

Summary: no doubt this is a great game.... wonderful in depth story...great worlds to explore...tons of side tasks...weapons modding...augmentation modding... the boss levels are a bit lame...either uber hard or uber easy.... if you like drake, red dead, mgs4 - you like this as well here is the biggest groan... NO REPLAY !!!! finish the game once and that is it no level replay at all... so in the end, you defeat the last boss...
Summary: This game has high production value but I had trouble fully enjoying it due to a few issues. The maps are very large and requires a lot of traversing, some times multiple times, to get to your objectives. Also, enemy AI is difficult to predict as sometimes they detect you even when you are out of line of sight. Lack of ammo is also another issue especially in the beginning of the game when you have few powers to choose from.
Summary: The game is extremely fun to play. I played through the game on its hardest setting and spent my time not killing anyone (outside of the boss battles). It was fun, it was frustrating...it was disappointing. For as much as they want to tote the ability to make choices and it affecting the story. It doesn't. There aren't multiple story arcs you progress through depending on how you play.
Summary: I just bought the Game, story is great, controls, Sound and everything, but was disappointed of the Graphics. Not sharp enough, doesn't look like a game developed in 2011. Plus the characters mouth movement didn't sync with their lines properly. I know there is nothing wrong with my Audio installation. I guess after playing LA NOIRE I started comparing the graphics. Nothing beat it yet. I'll give it 3 Stars.
Summary: So I just recently played Deus Ex: Human Revolution and there are things I liked about the game and things I don't like. I'll rate them accordingly on a scale of 1-10. Story: I'll delve into this part briefly and just give you my opinion without giving any major plot points away. The story is safe in itself and doesn't take risk but I still found myself getting caught up from time to time as far as the whole "is human augmentation something I agree with or not?" thing.
Summary: This is my first time playing a Deus Ex game and I just didn't get into it. The controls reminds me of Killzone which isn't the best in the world...but I can deal with it. The graphics are outdated, they are top-knotch like I was hoping and the voice acting is nothing special. You will hear your character say the same thing the exact same way in many conversations. The upgrading system was a waste of my time.
Summary: By far one of the worst endings in a game. The first game gave you options and had really cool cinematic endings. These endings show real-life protestors and fat people walking around while Jenson delivers a boring lecture on life. WOW what an ending.
