A great game on it's own merits

Baumshlager | Dec. 2, 2013 | Review of Deus Ex: Human Revolution Augmented Edition

If this was not a prequel to the original Deus Ex, it would still be an epic game. Although it is set in the "past", the technology looks more advanced,and that,with the boss levels that seem out of place, would be the only downside. You can again pick your own playstyle: be stealthy, go on a murderous rampage, or something in-between. I especially liked the pheromone analysis part where you have to talk the NPCs into doing your biding by monitoring their behavior. The story wasn't as good as the original, but it still gives you an option to choose the ending you prefer, which is great, and one mission includes the iconic Tracer Tong as a young man. Immersive sci-fi setting and a gret combination of FPS,RPG and a stealth game.Get this game, you won't be disappointed.
