  • Summary: In Deus Ex: Human Revolution you play Adam Jensen, a security specialist, handpicked to oversee the defense of one of America's most experimental biotechnology firms. But when a black ops team breaks in and kills the scientists you were hired to protect, everything you thought you knew about your job changes. At a time when scientific advancements are routinely turning athletes, soldiers and spies into super-enhanced beings, someone is working very hard to ensure mankind's evolution follows a particular path. You need to discover why - because the decisions you take and the choices you make will be the only things that can determine mankind's future. Expand

    Two years after its initial release, Deus Ex: Human Revolution remains a superb experience and an achievement in storytelling and gameplay.

    On the 360 the uses of Smartglass are minimal, but pretty cool nonetheless, allowing you to use your phone or tablet to perform the Hacking minigame or manage your skills and inventory. It’s very cool, and certainly feels very “digital age”, but it’s not much quicker or easier than using the controller.

    Even with the second-screen setbacks and the wonky in-game commentary, the Director's Cut of Deus Ex: Human Revolution is still the best version of the game.

    DX:HR Directors Cut is a worth a purchase if you haven't experienced the initial game along with the Missing Link DLC. The game is practically the same albeit some improved textures, better boss battles and tougher NPC's dotted around the various environments.

    It is a shame that the original Human Revolution wasn't this polished but the Directors Cut doesn't really warrant a purchase with so many titles coming out over the next few weeks. It's still a two year old title and the DLC is barely a few hours of extra content.

    The game is still very good even today but even back then; it felt marginally dated with some woeful AI and lousy combat. Those issues are still present today which is a shame despite other improvements as mentioned above. The story is interesting as is the characters but even to this day; the original Deus Ex from 13 years ago is streets ahead.

    Eidos Montreal have done a decent job taking on such a massive title with high expectations but the DX community would appreciate Deus Ex 4 rather than improved rehashes that could be improved in a patch without a pricetag.

    This game is more justified on the WiiU with the second screen but Xbox users who have completed Human Revolution should look to the future.

    Although I have allready all DLCs and original game which deserve 9 out of 10 (-1 for simple thing which is irritating only for me when you look down you don't see Adams legs I decided to support developers with getting DC version. I really liked advertised features: official game guide, game+ mode, integrated Missing Link into story arc, improved graphics, new achievements, developers commentary and SmartGlass integration. Unfortunately this edition is completely, utterly broken. Here are details of what is missing or broken:
    - Official Game guide apparently it was only marketing mistake missing in Xbox version
    - improved graphics I don't see any of that, period
    - no installation option on Xbox 360
    - few bugs prohibiting player to advance in the story
    - new achievements and SmartGlass due to developer/publisher mistake game is recognized not as DC but as normal edition that's why this two features are missing this is a MAJOR fubar and Square Enix is doing nothing to resolve situation. They should offer full refund for customers for laying in marketing materials and delivering broken product. If you want to play this game, please buy second hand copy.

    Mmmh what can I say about this. I'm just back from trading it in and getting back my old original copy. Why? Two discs and neither can be installed!!!! What the hell. Not happy at all. Such a great game as well. The game itself is easily a 10/10 but this lazy port is a useless 0. Don't waste your money on this keep your old original copy!!!! Sort yourself out square enix. Expand
