Deus Ex- Game Over

Posted by zanshin (148 posts) -

 I have been playing Deus Ex: Human Revolution for the last couple of days, and I am really enjoying it.  I am a veteran of the original Deus Ex game, which I really enjoyed, though I don't remember too many details of the game.
 
This Deus Ex: Human Resistance really appeals to me as it's a blend of Snake Plisken and Blade Runner.  Even some of the music sounds a bit like that from Escape from New York.
 
So far, I have gotten little accomplished in the game.  I have been exploring the section of the city available to me, hacking everything I find and attempting to avoid trouble, but taking care of business when hostilities ensue.
 
I found it very interesting that in Deus Ex: Human Resistance, when you are killed, you are given the message game over.  It seem very suitable, because technically you have lost the game, but it doesn't detract from game play it all and really is only a different wording (or lack of) than other games have.
 
One other thing is I consider this to be a true Role playing game, in that I take the role of the character, other characters talk with me and react to my replies and there are various actions I take which impact how the game plays out.
 
This is opposed to ROLL  playing games where your character (usually part of a party) stands still while attacking some monster, and numbers appear above your head indicating the level of damage you've done, which has no appeal to me.

I don't know if you've noticed, but it's Human Revolution...
