It is a brilliantly constructed game that sets up a world and then sets the player loose, allowing you to explore as you see fit. From the art direction to the genre-bending gameplay, Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a landmark in game design that is sure to be referenced in the years to come. Buy it without hesitation.
Deus Ex Human Revolution is the best game in series, because this game made Square Enix (creators of Final Fantasy Series, Hitman Series, SMRPG Legend of the Seven Stars, Sleeping Dogs and not many games from Tomb Raider Series), in Deus Ex Human Revolutions very interesting storyline, good gameplay, with awesome stealth, not bad graphics for 2011 and this game is very amazing cyberpunk stealth and I think Deus Ex Human Revolution is one of the best games of 2011. Amazing game, very good.
Great game. Good lengthy campaign with very interesting story line. I cant see why the latest deus ex games would get such lower reviews. I am very glad I purchased it. One of the only complaints I could come up with is the aim function. Its activated with the R joystick button and not the L trigger like im used to. Still the game makes up for it with EVERYTHING ELSE.
Overall, Dues Ex Human Revolution is a must-play, regardless of which system you choose (PC, duh). The variable difficulty settings will allow you to choose how badly you get kicked in the crotch on the missions. The story, characters, visuals, awesome voiceovers and perfectly suited and executed soundtrack make for a gaming experience that no one should miss. Kudos to Edios Montreal!
The game is fresh in a world of "me too" shooters. It may look like the average first person shooter game, but it is so much more. Effectively blending RPG elements, the stealth of Metal Gear Solid and Splinter Cell and the prey stalking of Batman: Arkham Asylum, Human Revolution is a worthy successor to the legendary series in a world where reboots often discard everything that made the original great.
Incredibly deep and offers up an action RPG game that will surely please those gamers who enjoy playing games like Splinter Cell and Mass Effect. It is a visually stunning game that features a top notch audio package and a storyline that is engaging.
That being said, Deux Ex: Human Revolution is an enjoyable experience that in this case may work better as art than it does as a game. And I'll always find room in my heart for a game that strives for more, even if its reach ultimately exceeds its grasp.
One of may favourite games of all time. Deus Ex: Human Revolution is for me the strongest entry in the series. The game (now over three years old) has still left a deep impression on me. The setting, atmosphere and environment design was very memorable by depicting a realistic future. The weapons and inventory had pretty solid customisation options and was more than what I expected. The stealth was well done and so was the combat. (The boss fights were still fun) What finished it off was the amazing soundtrack, character development and story but what made the game stand out was the multiple choices we could have made. I went back and experienced all that I missed out on - doing multiple playthroughs since it was just such a good game.
A hybrid of FPS, sandbox and RPG styles in this Blade Runner-esque story about augmented humans. It feels a lot less original than the first game and although there's nothing terribly wrong with it, it never feels particularly special either. A decent enough game, but the Mass Effect series does something similar and does it much better.
I feel like this is a game which when it came out in **** many people saw the appeal behind it and I got to ask myself...well why? It is a shame because I think personally if more people gave this game a chance (and its sequel) then it may become somewhat of a cult classic (like the original Deus Ex games on PC)
That is not to say this game has its flaws because I do feel like it does. For me personally, my personal biggest gripe with this game was its control scheme. I dont know if it was due to me being a bit younger when I played it originally or due to me playing it on Xbox 360? But looking past that, This game has alot to offer.
Gameplay itself is very clever as it gives you the option in a number of areas to either go stealthy or go in guns blazing. The latter not being the best option but a option there nether the less. It is a nice twist and the fact that is a RPG and gives you the options to tune the character to how you want to play just adds to the charm.
Story/Visuals wise isn't too bad. Story is a interesting concept but I think considering how much freedom you get given to play how you want to play, I think they could of personally injected that into the story JUST A TAD bit more. But that is me being nitpicky now.
In conclusion the game itself is a nice RPG. Has a lot of player choice/freedom which elevates it higher than some other games in this genre but those controls for me at least caused me to have some doubt.
To begin I'll say that I really wanted to like this game. I was a massive fan of the original and the hype coupled with the live action advert for the game had me incredibly excited, nigh orgasmic. As such I had this game pre-ordered for months before the actual release and I was thoroughly prepared to like it. Unfortunately it is simply not a very good game. The characters are boring, eg Adam being a stereotype of every action character ever, and you never find yourself actually caring what happens to any of them. The story is really quite simple and plot twists can be seen miles off. Similarly, the graphics for the game are not up to standard and look about 3 years old and the voice acting is rather bad. A further note on the graphics is that almost everything is orange, black or green, at first glance this looks futuristic but after a while the lack of colour (along with the unimaginative level design) variety makes every other area look the same. My biggest gripe however is that this was marketed quite heavily as an open world game, when it is in reality very very linear. Similarly, it was heavily implied that the AI would be intelligent, this is simply not the case! They are mindless, they will find a body be alert for 45 seconds and then go back to moving around like nothing has happened. Similarly in combat they simply line up to be shot, there is very little use of tactics by the AI. As another reviewer said, this game tries to be all things to all men and while not totally unsuccessful it does not do any of them well. The stealth is fine but not up to the standard of Metal Gear Solid or Splinter Cell, the combat is frustrating but even at it's best it does not even come close to the standard of many other FPS games out there. The designers should have focused on making the game really good, even if it meant focusing on just combat or just stealth rather than making a mediocre mix of both. Similarly, the game can't decide whether it wants to be first or third person, this breaks immersion in the game and is remarkably annoying to use. Another issue is the whole "moral choice" aspect of the game, these choices have no effect on the game. Characters will re-act the same to you no matter how you act. Gun down half the police force and within 30 seconds the remaining police love you again. Choose a morally dubious solution to a crisis? No problem because it has no bearing on anything that happens in the game at all. Very poorly done, at least other games with similar choice systems have consequences for your actions. Rarely do I feel bored while playing a game but this game has managed it which is a shame because I was really excited to play it. I'm not saying that it's not worth playing, and there will certainly be some people who enjoy it, but I would say that it's not worth Â£39.99 and that it does not live up to the hype and glowing reviews that it has received from reviewers. Wait to buy it in a sale
