Worthy successor to the original

larkan5 | Aug. 30, 2011 | Review of Deus Ex: Human Revolution

As of lately, I've found it very hard to actually play a game through to completion (Witcher 2 I'm looking at you), and DX:HR is my cure. This game reminds me of Metal Gear+Mass Effect, a wonderful and well realized combination. My first playthrough was mostly stealth, and I enjoyed every minute of it. There's so many ways to complete one objective, you can tell the developers really put their minds into making people want to playthrough a second or even third time just to test the many ways you can complete an objective. The voice acting is top notch, even normal NPC characters sound good! The inclusion of a patch to fix the loading times 48 hours after release really gave me a good reason to recommend this game to all my friends, as I know it will receive a lot of future support. Graphically the game is not up there with Crysis 2, but it's still mid-high range, and the attention to detail is astounding. My only real complaint is that by the end of my first playthrough, I had nearly unlocked every augmentation, which made the game pretty easy towards the last third of the game. Other than that, excellent game, it will tide me over until October for sure!
