An OK action RPG that just doesn't do anything amazing.

Summary: I like what Deus Ex tried to do, but ultimately it is a game with only fair gameplay. The story tries to be very interesting, but at times I didn't feel like I had a good grasp of the plot and the characters involved. Most of the character models looked bad, and being so story based it made it difficult to focus. The over-arching story line leaves a bit to be desired, and the environments are bland.
Summary: Terrible A.I., yellow hued environment, bad boss fights that never should've been part of the game. I had more fun with DX:IW, even though there was frame-rate problems on the Xbox (at least the story and environments were interesting. You also, had better object manipulation and placement, instead of everything ending up on the floor.
Summary: This is the same awesome game with the DLC stitched in, and somegameplay imporvements. I own the original, and nothing has changed, the game itself is awesome. Cons: That said, I bought this game to use the second screen features (smartglass) for hacking, and they do not work. I have checked all across the internet. The Wii U second screen works, the PS Vita sometimes works, and the Xbox Smartglass NEVER works. Therefore I am returning the game.
Summary: .. but unfortunately this Director's Cut is a bust. They did a great job updating the boss fights so that you can actually do them your way (go hide in some vents, sneak around the boss, and turn on some turrets, for example) rather than the game just turning into a deathmatch like it did in the original version. I loved Human Revolution when it first came out, and I still enjoy playing it, but they screwed up badly with this release.
Shallow, disappointing, bosses out of step with advertised game play

Summary: Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a sort of sneaker sort of shooter sort of RPG sort of sort of sort of. It doesn't really excel at anything and tries to do a lot of things at once. Set in the future you play a corporate tough guy in pursuit of the guys who tried to kill you while attacking your boss. The game is very shallow.
Summary: I have played this game through twice now and something that confused me about what other reviewers have stated; the lack of ammo. The storage was only designed to hold 2 maybe 3 weapons tops. NOT every weapon in the game. When I finished the game I had over 350 rounds of 10mm and 300 rounds of LMG rounds. Ammo is not an issue if one manages their inventory correctly. So here is my review: Animation was par.
Summary: Deus Ex: Human Revolution for the Xbox 360 is an okay game. It isn't great, but it isn't bad either. In the game you play as Adam Jensen, a security guard for a biotech firm who's body is augmented after a devestating attack on the company he works for. With the new augs Adam is super human and launches an investigation into the whereabouts of the attackers. The story is interesting, if not a little bloated and confusing.
