One of the Best Games of 2011.

ryanyau | July 22, 2012 | Review of Deus Ex: Human Revolution

This game is a prequel to the original Deus Ex series that was released back in 2000. I have not played the original series before, but that did not hinder my enjoyment at all. The 50 hours long story is dark and deep yet very easy to get into.

Gameplay is freeform and completely left to the player to use whatever means to go about accomplishing goals. There are lots of side quests and some of them are very intriguing. Character customization is very detailed and can sometimes lead to very dramatic changes which can totally alter the gameplay.

Music and sound are very cinematic and portray the dystopian nature of the world extremely well. It is a treat for the senses.

CG cutscenes however look rough and slightly dated. The world itself is not as open as it appears. Boss fights are surprisingly linear and too combat oriented, compared to how much freedom you had in the rest of the game.

Overall Rating: 9.0 / 10 One of the best games of 2011. An excellent game not to be missed.
