A great game but too complex for my taste

Summary: This game is impressive, so many features and great graphics and seemingly endless replay value. I gave it four stars because as a stealth/adventure/shooter game, it is more complicated than what I like. So this is not a reflection of the game's quality and I am not saying it's a bad game or poorly made. Four stars is my subjective opinion of how fun this game is... so many gadgets and options and whatnot, kind of confusing.
Summary: This game was on the verge of being perfect. If Amazon allowed 4.5 ratings, this would be it. Deus Ex: Human Revolution took me back to a time when I spent 6-8 hours playing video games in single sittings. It became incredibly addictive and absorbing, and the stealth aspect of the game was done to perfection. Part of how long I spent playing this game was due to me taking extra (extra!) time being stealthy. I don't want to be seen by anybody!
THE HEAD OF SECURITY IS THE BIGGEST THIEF OF ALL...

Summary: THE HEAD OF SECURITY IS THE BIGGEST THIEF OF ALL...AND I WANT TO CLEAR UP THE MISPERCEPTION THAT ALL THE BOSS FIGHTS ARE RAMBO STYLE. I played this game all the way through about 1-1/2 years ago and then replayed about half of it after that, so this review is a little late. 1) Yes, the boss fights do SEEM like they must be Rambo showdowns, but this isn't true. They don't have to be. The first boss fight is against a big hulking heavily armored red neck about 6'8" tall.
Summary: I don't know any true gamer who can say that they just flat out hate stealth games, and deus ex is a grand example of how an utter robot like Mr.Adam Jensen, head of security, can crouch around in dark alleys and hide around corners without ever developing arthritis in his mechanical knees.
Summary: Deus Ex makes a great comeback. The story is compelling, and the characters gripping. Anyone who enjoys the genre must get this game. Eidos Montreal makes a terrific debut with DEHR and I can't wait to see what they're up to next!
Summary: I'm a big fan of Square Enix, Robots, and the idea of upgradeable skills and attributes. Deus Ex: Human Revolution is just this! Well, the graphics are a little on the "Ok, Not great, but ok" side. The voice acting is Oh so good... It's like Square Enix paid a guy who had been smoking since birth to read the lines of Adam Jensen (not as awesome as Christian Bale, sadly).
Summary: It takes some getting used to the switch between first- and third-person-view, but once you get it the game moves just fine. It was a little shocking at first how quickly gunfire can take you down, which forces much more stealth and pot-shots-from-cover. I kinda think they should have given you more staying power, especially if you get the armor augmentations.
Summary: I purchased this game because I truly enjoy RPGs and specially ones that don't require lots of button combinations (since I'm 45 years old). I had played Deux on Sega before and enjoyed it and was hoping this would be good too. Well I wasn't disappointed! Despite the fact that the game is a bit repetitive it was quite a joy to play. The AI is a bit sloppy at times i.e.
