An engrossing and thoughtful RPG for all sci-fi lovers

sandw1tch | June 18, 2012 | Review of Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Deus Ex:HR is one of the most engrossing and just plain fun games I have played in a long time. This stems from just how well Edios Montreal have crafted the universe that makes it seem so alive and and desirable for any sci-fi lover.

From a gameplay standpoint, almost every action is crafted to be neat and satisfying. from every trigger pull to every takedown , it just makes you want to keep playing. What was also a pleasant suprise was just how thoughtful the game becomes by the end. the protagonist, Jensen comes to discuss the very origins of human life and our responsibility for it's progression.

The cons are very few and rarely take from the experience. The major flaws are in the boss battles which seem so alien from the rest of the game and the second most notable flaws are in the low-res textures and "jenky" character models, but these are easily overlooked.

Overall, it should be on any sci-fi lovers list.
