Outside of some disappointment in the overall performance, and the ridiculous nature of the pricing on the Wii U compared to other platforms, I found this to be a pretty substantial re-release for a really great game.
Stunning game with story as good as gameplay. It is on the same level of quality as Dishonored, which to me means that both are just phenomenal games that any gamer should play through in their entirety.
It may be a two-year-old game, but whoever's idea it was to resurrect Deus Ex: Human Revolution for Wii U deserves a slap on the back and a raise of the glass. The original game may not have had the GamePad in mind at all when it was released in 2011, but this Director's Cut feels completely at home with it in 2013.
Deus Ex Human Revolution - Director’s Cut had an unenviable task: take one of 2011’s best games and make it even better, all while figuring out how to best utilize the oft-ignored GamePad. It succeeded on all fronts.
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 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.
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 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.
The game play overall was average. There was nothing new there. The IA was ridiculously stupid and horribly programmed, an example of this was when I threw a cardboard box at a team mate and they shot me.
This game is not worth your money and you should avoid it.
Looks pretty, but its kinda difficult to appreciate that when the controls are horrendous! Very close to being unplayable. Do yourself a favor a buy it for the pc. Just another **** for nintendo to desperatly make some money of wii u witch swansong is already playing loud.
