    Background: I've never played a Deus Ex game before but I really enjoy RPGs and have played Elder Scrolls, Final Fantasy, Knights of the OldBackground: I've never played a Deus Ex game before but I really enjoy RPGs and have played Elder Scrolls, Final Fantasy, Knights of the Old Republic, among others.

    Intro:
    Deus Ex: Human Revolution gives us a perspective on a potential future for mankind where human enhancements called augments divide humanity into haves and have nots.

    What I liked:
    - A compelling story that kept me going until the end!
    - Tough choices to make, albeit these can be a bit rare throughout the game (it's no Dragon Age).
    - The game truly encourages you to think outside of the box with the choices. More often then not you can find a better alternative for the choices the game presents you.
    - Arguments and conversations throughout the game are not made for the player to win. You have to be careful with what you say.

    What I didn't like:
    - Towards the end of the game you'll get a non optional reset of all the ability points (called praxis points) you got meaning you're back to square one and have to earn almost everything back. This is highly discouraging to continue to play the game but please don't quit. At the end of that section you'll get everything back but it still feels like the game is punishing the player unnecessarily.
    - Very minor graphical glitches.

    Conclusion:
    In my humble opinion Deus Ex: Human Revolution has exactly what every RPG should have and should be played by any fan of the genre.
    It's a game that doesn't disappoint and kept me wanting for more!
    The issues I had with this game are truly minor compared to everything this game does right!

This game is practically a masterpiece with an open world, free decision making, and unique game mechanics. I highly recommend this game to anyone who's interested in non- linear, future based games.

    This game is fine, but nowhere near as good as popular opinion seems to indicate. The addition of developer commentary only highlights theThis game is fine, but nowhere near as good as popular opinion seems to indicate. The addition of developer commentary only highlights the technical hurdles that the team chose to sidestep (eg no mirrors in bathrooms, an "open world" that resolves into a handfull of simple corridors, etc). The Missing Link DLC is incorporated into the game, but just barely - it amounts to a cutscene's brusque segue into losing all your weapons and skills. Further, the DLC isn't really very much fun to play; it feels like a supermarket, where you have to move from one corner to another to suit the seller's needs rather than your own. Having to execute all these fetch quests is even more obnoxious by the existence of not one but two airlock-type thingies that each take roughly a minute of flashing blue lights to pass through and a two minute elevator ride with scenery befitting a ten year-old game.

    There's some fun to be had here, but it plays like a budget game and not the AAA title that so many would claim it to be.
