Not at the same level as the first, but still captures the feel. 0

Some follow-ups to great games are also great, and some of them are pretty bad. Success or failure often hinges upon whether the developers understand and appreciate what made the original game great, and where it needed to improve. When they do, it results in excellent games like Half-Life 2 and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat. When they don't, it results in fiascos like Deus Ex: Invisible War. Invisible War is the "Star Wars Prequel Trilogy" of video games. It was made by people who did not re...

Deus Ex Human Revolution Review: Thank Deus for me 0

Deus Ex Human Revolution is a prequel to the original Deus Ex from 2000. The world presented in this game is extremely attractive and reminiscent of a near future with a heavy cyberpunk and blade runner like aesthetic to its visuals. The story of the game revolves around the increasing spread of augmenting humans by implanting them with robotic upgrades. There are themes brought into this including philosophy, morality and regulation as elements of society are opposed to the increasing numbers o...

An evolutionary step in the right direction. 0

It has been over a decade since the first Deus Ex rolled onto our computer screens and made us think long and hard about the way we approach player choice in video games. Before and since then, only a few games have managed to come close to giving the player the illusion of free choice (namely the likes of BioShock and Fallout 3), but almost none have successfully delivered an experience where your decisions display a marked and dramatic effect on both characters and the gameplay. The first Deus...

Not an embarassment 0

The name Deus Ex holds a lot of weight with the video game community. It was released in 2000 to critical acclaim. It’s well known for its numerous ways to tackle each situation in the game. The sequel Deus Ex Invisible War didn’t do so hot, so there were no further attempts at prolonging the series. Eleven years later Deus Ex: Human Revolution hit store shelves as a prequel to the original game. Human Revolution had a lot to live up to. While it didn’t necessarily hit the mark it certainly didn...

Ambitious and Mostly Successful 0

How I played the game: This is my first Deus Ex game, so I can't speak to how it fits into the series or how it compares. I played the PS3 version well after the first patch. Load times were O.K. for me, not particularly short, but not bad. I played it on the hardest difficulty my first time through. I played a mixed build with max armor, some hacking, all grenade effect resists, and a mix of the movement stuff. Maxed assault rifle but I used the pistol quite a lot.The short version: This is a G...

1 Part RPG, 3 Parts stealth/action game 0

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a RPG that takes all the fun out of role-playing games. Still, it's a fun game and if you're a fan of action games with a bit more realism, you'll have fun with DX:HR.What do I mean by "taking all the fun out of RPGs"? While this game does have an interesting dialogue manipulation system that pops up rather infrequently, side quests and (moderately) large maps that you can roam around in, that's about as far as it goes in the RPG genre. There's very little you can do...

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Review 0

4 Cyberboost ProEnergy Bars out of 5Adam Jensen: Beekeeper.Deus Ex: Human Revolution turned out to be a much, MUCH better game than I anticipated. It quickly went from a game that I knew existed, but didn’t have much hope for based on how the original’s sequel fared and because of some of the action heavy footage I had seen leading up to its release, to a game that I am extremely happy to have played and may play again someday. Human Revolution is a prequel to the original Deus Ex. You play as A...

Zing! 0

In 2000, Deus Ex was released for the PC. It revolutionized the ability to make choices in video games, allowing you to do what you want, and how you want it. A sequel, Deus Ex: Invisible War, was released in 2003, but was criticized for being dumbed down, and, in the end, was disliked by the original’s fans. Fast-forward to 2007. After years of a “Deus Ex drought,” news of another Deus Ex game was revealed. Four years later, it was finally released. With hype that big, could Deus Ex: Human Revo...

Your limbless worries are over! 0

I jumped on the Dues Ex: Human Revolution hype-band-wagon impulsively. Having never played any of the previous titles in the series I got a little rush dramatically clicking the purchase button on Steam (had Valve's little distribution platform not saved my credit card there's a good chance I wouldn't be writing this right now). I live on the edge, just like you decisively can as Adam Jensen in Eidos Montreal's cyber-punk inspired world set in 2027.Naturally, the tables feel turned as I write th...

Choose to play this game 0

I didn't own a PC in the late 90s, so I was never able to experience the original Deus Ex which I still only have a vague understanding of its significance. I did have enough knowledge to know that Deus Ex: HR had some very big shoes to fill. When the Game of the Year Awards came around at the end of 2011, Deus Ex was pretty absent. But when I think back to Deus Ex I realize that despite some questionable design choices here and there and a bit of technical jank the game is really a lot of fun.T...

Deus Ex's intricate mechanics are expertly framed by its story 0

The original Deus Ex is still to this very day considered to be one of the finest action/rpg's of all time and with good reason -- it successfully told a poignant, well-realized story, merged stealth and combat mechanics and showered the player with a ton of choices, which added a ton of depth and variety to the proceedings. It's been a long time coming but the next-gen offering in the Deus Ex series --dubbed Human Revolution-- is finally here and it's without question one of the most ambitious ...

Too Stuck in the Past 0

Adam Jensen talks to a dude.Deus Ex: Human Revolution from Eidos Montreal and Square Enix feels like a game out of time. Its cyberpunk aesthetic and storyline as well as its level design and some of its mechanics feel ripped out of a game that was made in the era of the original Deus Ex. Back in the heady days of 2000 when films like The Matrix were still blowing everybody’s minds, you could get away with a gruff protagonist wearing a trenchcoat and sunglasses, but it looks very out of place in ...

Jensen's back for more augmented ass-kicking 0

Adam Jensen is back in a newer, and much better looking, Deus Ex. In this Cyberpunk actiongame, Sarif Industries is attacked, and Adam Jensen is the man to find out what's going on.With his lover taken, his workplace ruined, and every second person trying to kill him, Jensengoes to great lengths (Literally. From Detroit to Shanghai kind of lengths) to solve this mystery.This isall well and good to read, but I found that when I was playing, the story was much more difficultto follow. I saw a dot ...

A western RPG worth playing 0

I'd heard and read quite a bit about the original Deus Ex, but never actually played it, so I went into Deus Ex - Human Revolution with no real expectations, just a hope that it could live up to it's extremely cool announcement trailer. Thankfully, it did that and more. Human Revolution does what a lot of RPGs set out to do, but few actually accomplish, and that's have a legitimately meaningful story. It's not just a dramatic tale of government corruption, warring international corporations and...

Fun yet ultimately flawed 0

There's not much left to be said about Human Revolution that you may not have already gleaned from pre release hype.  With that said, Deus Ex: Human Revolution is largely worth much of the praise heaped up on it.  It's beautiful, if a bit (okay almost totally) brown, the AI doesn't seem to have evolved much over similar games of yester-generation.  The augmentations really allow you to chisel out your very own character, and the morality system isn't as arbitrary as other games.  My biggest issu...

One of the most deep and fun games you'll ever play 0

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a prequel to the critically acclaimed original Deus Ex and the first game in the series since 2003's Invisible War. Set in the near future, Human Revolution takes place in a world where human augmentation is beginning to become very popular and create some controversy. Some people want restrictions on it or to have it banned completely and others support this technology. The story follows Adam Jensen on his quest to find out who was responsible for an attack on Sarif...

An Intelligent Game For Those Who Want Choice 0

Gruff-voiced protagonist, Adam Jensen.The original Deus Ex, released for the PC in 2000, is commonly considered to be one of the most ground-breaking action-adventure games ever developed. Famed for its cyberpunk thematics and giving players a variety of different ways to overcome challenges, it blew away reviewers and players alike. Deus Ex: Human Revolution acts as a prequel to the highly acclaimed original, proudly reviving the spirit of its predecessor in both its world and its gameplay, and...
