Deus Ex: Human Revolution
28 September 2012
Excerpt: To say the 2000 release of Deus Ex changed the face of gaming might sound hyperbolic if it weren’t true. Warren Spector’s cyberpunk effort followed in the footsteps of his equally worthy System Shock series, smoothly melding the visceral feel of the first person shooter with the character...
Pros: The entertaining cyberpunk story, Extremely polished everything, Open ended gameplay and maps
Cons: No multiplayer modes, Easy to abuse enemy AI, Minor control issues
Excerpt: After Halo 2 was released in November of 2004, some gamers slaved away on Xbox Live getting their Halo 2 ranking up to an obscene number only to have it all wiped away when Bungie reset all the stats in May of this year. If you were one of these people left frustrated, sad, and alone, I?
Summary: The story in Splinter Cell: Blacklist is really pretty interesting. A terrorist group attacks the U.S. base on Guam and issues an ultimatum that they will attack a different American target every 7 days unless the U.S. pulls its military out of every country soldiers are currently stationed in.
Summary: to the Deus Ex series. Human Revolution (HR) was, and still is, an engulfing and entertaining experience that weaves an interesting tale in with the concept of moral decisions and choices that shape your development and future (in the game).

Compare it to Invisible War , the slicked-up, dumbed-down sequel that still has fans reeling, and you could conclude that Eidos has a better understanding of...
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.
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: Deus Ex has always held a special place in my heart. It was the first game I played where stealth was not only a valid option, but in most places required. It is also the first first-person game where the story was of real consequence and more meaningful than just ‘shoot this guy, run here, jump...
