Showing 1-10 of 50
20 March 2015
Summary: More than a simple shooter, but less than a full fledged RPG, Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a hybrid of styles that lets you take pretty much any path you want through its futuristic cyberpunk world. Should you sneak through a room full of guards? Kill them all?
Excerpt: Everything old will eventually turn hip again. That’s what Square-Enix must have thought when going over Eidos’ IP portfolio. After the mediocre second installment, Deus Ex seemed dead in the water, but now, eight years later, we can rejoice as number three has arrived.
Excerpt: Over ten years ago, the gaming world was rocked by a game of superlative brilliance, the likes of which had rarely been even imagined. That gem was Deus Ex , a game which ingeniously melded elements of the standard first person shooters and roleplaying games along with a vast and intelligent plot...
Conclusion: Make no mistake though Human Revolution, for all its modern trappings, remains a game that requires commitment, offering the sort of long and deep single player experience that seems to be so rare these days.
Excerpt: Summary [8.5 out of 10] A prequel to the other games in the series, Deus Ex Human Revolution follows Adam Jensen, the head of security at a bio-tech corporation, who becomes embroiled in corporate and industrial espionage that turns into a much bigger plot than anyone expected.

Summary: For those who have yet to complete or pick up Human Revolution , I would advise completing it first as The Missing Link is more of the same—excellent combat, irrational AI and all. Fans will enjoy getting a chance to check out a few overlooked augments while digging into more of the backstory.
Summary: Adam Jensen leads a hard life. His lady friend was kidnapped, synthetic augmentations were embedded in his body without his permission, and the head of his security insults him at every opportunity.
Pros: Level design lets you approach obstacles as you see fit, Some creepy and atmospheric story moments, Evocative art style and color palette
Cons: Too much backtracking and body scanning, Various presentation flaws, The AI is still as dumb as can be
Excerpt: Much to the delight of Deus Ex: Human Revolution fans, myself included, Square Enix announced downloadable story-driven content shortly after the game was released. Missing Link fills in the blanks...
Pros: + Clears up a few questions, + Game play is consistent with original
Cons: Too much backtracking, Some graphical glitches, Story is not compelling
Excerpt: Adam wasn't napping for the three days he disappeared during Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The big lug starts Missing Link strapped into an interrogation chair in the bowels of a Belltower freighter, but a mysterious new ally soon frees him to cause fresh mischief.
Pros: + Nerve-fraying stealth; heart-pounding combat; intricate new environments., + Every choice matters, from upgrades and tactics to a single troubling moral dilemma.
Cons: ? Are Adam's six-pack abs the result of exercise or augmentation?
Excerpt: Deus Ex: Human Revolution surprised many of the most hardened, cynical, and skeptical gamers out there. Sure, it didn't deliver the exact same brand of action-RPG that the legendary original game did back in 2000, but it did bring back the stealth-action gameplay with a few new twists and showed us...
