A great game for both story and action!

icearmor | Oct. 24, 2013 | Review of Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is an excellent game with options for both those who have lethal, run-and-gun playstyles and those who prefer to cloak themselves in darkness and strike non-lethally while moving through areas. The augmentation system is well done and the use of praxis points (points used to buy upgrades for your character) based on experience points encourages the player to find the best solution to a particular problem. I mainly played stealthily and really enjoyed hacking my way through top-security doors while knocking out guards or sniping them with the tranquilizer gun. Overall, the game plays great and the only downfall I've experienced is that the scripted boss battles often favor those who have more of an inclination towards heavy weapons than those who use non-lethal take-downs. Don't let this deter you, however, since the rest of the game is rather open-world and gives you a sense of control over your story.
