    This is both a worthy upgrade and worthy introduction if you’ve never played a game in the series before. The game may be augmented, but they’re augments made for the betterment of mankind.

    It follows the same formula, excellent story and open ended problem solving and combines this with RPG elements and modern game play but with Wii U enhancements

    This Director's Cut fixes a few big issues of the original Deus Ex Human Revolution. Thanks to the redesigned boss battles and to the great use of the Wii U's GamePad, this is the best version of the title to date. If you didn't play the game two years ago, this is the moment to try one of the most interesting cyberpunk experiences of this generation.

    An enhanced version of one of the best action and stealth adventure games. A must-have for Wii U owners.

    The better, albeit still a bit rushed, version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Finally the bosses are on par with the rest of the game. [Jan 2014]

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut may be overlooked by those who have already played it, but it is a robust experience worthy of a playthrough by its own right.

    Deus Ex Human Revolution: Director's Cut is, without any doubt, the ultimate version of the masterpiece by Eidos Montreal, and the WiiU Gamepad even manages to ennoble it by adding further interesting mechanics. Unfortunately, the price is way too high for a two-year-old game.

    This game is outstanding, the graphical style is fantastic to look at and you will often find yourself looking at the views when you are inThis game is outstanding, the graphical style is fantastic to look at and you will often find yourself looking at the views when you are in tall buildings. The gameplay is some of the best I have played in this genre and the augmentations (character upgrades) really change the way that you play the game and approach different situations of which there are many options. The storyline is very compelling and has some real life undertones to it. The sound is also very good and suits the sci-fi nature of the game well.

    There are many weapons in the game which are all really fun to use and can be upgraded too with things like explosive bullets and laser sights etc.

    The hacking mini game is also one of the best ones I have seen in a game and is really satisfying to unlock areas and find goodies inside. The wii u game pad also makes the hacking more fun and adds new elements to the game. The ability to hack robots and turrets to turn them against your enemies is also super fun.

    I would strongly recommend this game to anyone who likes sci-fi shooters/stealth games because this is one of the best ones around and the wii u version is the best version because of the added game pad functionality.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. With improvements to the game's flow and excellent second-screen support, the Director's Cut of Human Revolution is the definitive version of an excellent game. Human Revolution would bear replaying even without the enhancements it's a rare title that combines superb world building and storytelling with such dedication to player choice. I lost myself in the world of Human Revolution, and relished every opportunity to dive deeper into its mysteries. Expand

    Players will get to relive Adam Jensen's saga in a whole new way. Expanding on the already critically acclaimed game, Deus Ex: HumanPlayers will get to relive Adam Jensen's saga in a whole new way. Expanding on the already critically acclaimed game, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the Director's Cut introduces superb second-screen support, reworked boss battles, improved assets and seamless integration of the Missing Link DLC within the main story. Deus Ex: HR itself has an already wonderfully built world complete with a plethora of characters and deep mysteries to them. What the studio has done is truly Deus Ex compared to other modern re-imaginings have done to classic franchises. This game is truly a "modern classic" in my opinion and what this re-release does is improve upon that perfection. Expand

    Deus Ex is a great game which unfortunately is now showing its age released on the WiiU. I was surprised to find that the graphics areDeus Ex is a great game which unfortunately is now showing its age released on the WiiU. I was surprised to find that the graphics are inferior to the xbox360 version, which I spent a lot of time playing. The gamepad is used to good effect and genuinely addes to the experience. For me the best aspect of the WiiU version (and the best part of the WiiU in general) is the fact that it offers off-tv play. Expand

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a fun stealth game and provides amazing deep in how one can enjoy its experience in gameplay. You find many waysDeus Ex: Human Revolution is a fun stealth game and provides amazing deep in how one can enjoy its experience in gameplay. You find many ways to take out enemies and navigate your way from point a to point b. While the story may be boring at times and majority of bosses can be a major let down, its does have its golden moments.

    Adam Jenson must find something close to him so that he may piece together the fallen pieces of his life. In a world where people are dealing with their most serve problems through augmentation, its seems not enough to satisfy Adams wises, he must look deeper, for mystery surrounds his every thought. Who do you trust now to help you find the way and stay on course? How can one survive?

    The gameplay is a bunch of fun, but while its the strongest point of the game, its also its draw back. I always find myself being taken out of the gameplay when im wanting more of it. The stealth is so engaging and deep, it makes me want to spend most of my time having fun with it. But with all the loading, story bits, reading notes, hacking devices, it just bums your experience a little too much. But when you get in that stealth mode, boy is it fun. I enjoyed playing with the different augmentations a little, but mainly i didnt full with them much, i just enjoyed the freedom of moving a round and taking out guys in so many different ways.

    The weapons gameplay is also very nice and diverse, the only weapon i didnt care for too much was the sniper guns, didnt find the aiming to be all that accurate without a cross eye to target people, so was kinda a guessing matter for a so called pro, made me feel under powered. Pistol was my favorite gun, was cool having it to take out cameras when needed and shot other random objects.

    The story i didnt care for too much, characters were not all that engaging, and most except for Jenson were pretty boring and had no character build up, i didnt care much for any of them as i knew nothing about them and they seem to just be random dudes helping me out in my quest. The ending was very cool and rewarding though, i did enjoy that part.

    Bosses were somewhat a let down majority of the time, two boss fights were very cool and one i loved to death, but the other 3 were very easy and pretty boring. One i dont even think was a boss it was so easy, i just one-shotted him. Gameplay was still solid though and game was very polished.

    I had a great time with Dues Ex, the stealth was amazing and would love to have a game that focused on that part of the gameplay without all the other interferences. I would consider the game to be a very good game, but nothing too special for me, would highly recommend to people who enjoy stealth games or just action games with strategy in general.
