Excerpt: If there were ever a game with massive shoes to fill, it’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution . Human Revolution is a prequel to the widely celebrated Deus Ex , released back in 2000, which popularized concepts such as genre-blending, multiple methods of completing objectives, and RPG elements and specializations.
Conclusion: The team at Eidos Montreal has succeeded in capturing the spirit that made Deus Ex so great. While it is not a perfect title, never was the original. The story is well told. The gameplay is varied and fun. The graphics ooze with an amber hue and tons of style. The sound design is great. Whether you’re a fan of the original or simply a fan of games, this game is worth checking out.
Summary: I love " Deus Ex: Human Revolution ". But it’s not a perfect game, much in the same way that Bethseda’s games have their share of issues. The bosses are not much fun, the gunplay and controls just feel odd in comparison to other modern games, and some of the voice acting is properly off.
Excerpt: Throughout Human Revolution ’s twenty hour runtime, protagonist Adam Jensen’s voice barely breaks above a gruff growl. He’s a man, you suspect, who has seen much in his time. Once a member of the SWAT, he now works for Sarif Industries, knee deep in a corporation that manufactures human augmentations. With his retractable shades and augmented body, Jensen is a product of the very company he works for.
Excerpt: Despite its shortcomings, Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a long and entirely satisfying gaming experience and a worthy prequel to the original title. If you’re itching for an RPG/Shooter hybrid with a strong story and a gorgeous world to explore, this is just the game for you.
Excerpt: Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a marvellously detailed character-based shooter that combines classic concepts and modern technological wrinkles. “Classic” suggests there were once more games like this; in reality, there have been few other than Deus Ex . In 2000, Deus Ex blended shooter concepts, RPG character development, and a story that genuflected deeply toward William Gibson. The game might have become an industry-defining benchmark.
