Reviews for Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut
Human Revolution as it should beObsessor | Oct. 7, 2014 | See all Obsessor's reviews »
Exactly - the game feels now as it should from the very beginning. There is one major improvement I consider a pivotal point for playing Director's Cut instead of the initial release of this game. Finally you don't have to fight every boss in a typical shooter manner - which forced you to build your character, chose implants and stuff to be able to survive open engagement. Now you can find a stealth approach which utilizes your hacking and stealth skills. At last it is valid to make a character that fully relies on his hacking skills and not another Terminator.
Another great thing - merged Missing Link DLC. And merged flawlessly and seamlessly, as ones who played base release of Deus Ex Human Revolution, know that you had to play Missing Link at a certain point in the story, or it became invalid and outright nonsensical to play.
As for graphics - the devs removed golden filter from the screen. Some people did't like it. I did, so it feels a bit awkward to me. As for other stuff - weapons are somewhat smaller and their placement in Jensen's hands is different.
All things considered, apart from my minor rant, I consider this game the proper Deus Ex. And it will be a great experience for fans and new players who want to know Deus Ex alike. 90/100 and vision augmentation implant!

A game combining the basic elements of a rpg upgrades,skills and the various fps elements of a shooter. decent A decent script for the AI along with improved graphics from the original marks the game as its own little genre with the added bonus of stealth.
Great FPS with RPG systemFrozenFireCZ | Aug. 24, 2014 | See all FrozenFireCZ's reviews »
The most immersive action RPG ever just got better. I love all of the improvements of the Director's Cut. I was extremely pleasantly surprised with the new options they have added to beat the boss fights. I also thoroughly enjoyed the Developer Commentary and it provided a lot of insights that I never knew about the game. But the biggest and most noticeable change is actually having two beautiful energy bars that automatically refill to play with. Makes everything so much easier. The "golden haze" effect will be missed, however, but the game still looks great, almost remastered even. The cutscenes just now feel a bit out of place compared to the rest of the game.
If you haven't finished Deus Ex: Human Revolution yet, get this and do it now. There's no reason not to because you are seriously missing out. Highly recommended.
Really is a must playvirulent0o | Aug. 20, 2014 | See all virulent0o's reviews »
I picked Deus Ex up during the "top 50 must play" sale to see if was deserving of its spot on the list. At first I wasn't really moved by the voice actor for Adam Jensen - he sounded like batman with a cold. But after the first mission, I was hooked!
Deus ex provides a good mix between a shooter and RPG. The player can blast either through enemies with guns, hands and augments OR take on a stealthy espionage approach. The beauty of it is that each approach yields different results.
Main story is somewhat expected, but what excels are the side quests. These are not the mindless "fetch" quests, each side quest introduces the player to some NPC that actually has a story and motive. Some of them even helps/deters the main story.
Without taking up more writing space. I have to say that it really deserves its spot in the top 50 must play list.
Gold game.Furrek | Aug. 17, 2014 | See all Furrek's reviews »
And by gold game I mean that literally. It's beautiful color that fits great to cyberpunk game. Every step you make in this game, no matter where you look around, you see how developed technology is in Deus Ex: Human Revolution. What made me fall in love with this game? Starting from great atmosphere - it doesn't have just a few things that would make this game labelled as "cyberpunk" one, but the world in this game is very well made. Next thing is greatly interaction with characters - it's not only boring talks, but what you say to the person you are talking with will lead you to other outcomes. Another thing is that you can play however you like to - you don't even need to fight anyone (except boss fights) if you don't want to, there is also special achievement for doing that. Sound crazy, but it can be done. Sometimes trying to bypass your foes is easier then fighting them. Difficult level, even played on lowest setting, is still kinda hard. You are not invincible, few shots, or a good one in head, will make you start from last checkpoint. Story and music are also great. In my opinion, it's a title that everyone should play. Never played Deus Ex? Don't worry, it's a prequel to the other 2 main games. Director's Cut edition comes with DLC and additional commentary from developers, available when you are playing. It's a great deal for an amazing game like Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
Perfect stealth game.Suppression555 | Aug. 13, 2014 | See all Suppression555's reviews »
"If you want to make enemies, try to change something ..."
pros: + The story raises many adult themes, and the final movie definitely force to reflect + Style game allows to immerse your head in the game, everything worked out to the smallest detail around from conventional diaries and room facilities, explore the world of really interesting + Large branched levels, there are always several ways to get to the goal + The game does not dictate the style of passing, we can do whatever you like, it all depends on the preference of the player + Chic atmospheric soundtrack
cons: - Outdated graphics part of the game
Deus Ex: Human Revolution adult clever game in the style of cyberpunk, with more detailed world, with different possibilities of action, with the dialogue, some of which are similar to the present psychological testing and many, many others. Effect of immersion is so strong that at some point you might think, and that if we are waiting for a future with all these implants and their problems? Who knows ...
One of my favorite games.klinkplink | Aug. 12, 2014 | See all klinkplink's reviews »
I don't know what it is about this game, perhaps the overall feel of it, but I just keep coming back to it. I originally played it on my friends computer, and now I've bought it for myself. Definitely worth it.
RPG elements + FPS = great gameRomy68 | Aug. 12, 2014 | See all Romy68's reviews »
This is by far one of my favorite games released in the last years. Deus Ex : Human Revolution provides a great play time thanks to its almost unique, individual mechanics, which allow you to hack different kinds of places and objects. That being added some cool RPG elements such as a skill tree and various options to upgrade the main character, this title definitely has its place in the market and deserves as well the words of praise.
Good Gamelajvjjajajaaaa | Aug. 1, 2014 | See all lajvjjajajaaaa's reviews »
Deus Ex Human Revolution is mix of first and third-person shooter. You're ex-SWAT member who is now bodyguard of scientists and there company secrets. But they are killed your world change. You are in a time with great technological advancement. With the many guns in the game there is great amount of upgrades, some abilities and combat skills. Choose to kill all your foes or sneak behind them and leaf no traces. There are some bosses weak and strong. The game proceed the way you play it. The game is really good pick it up on sale if possible.

Deus Ex creates a complex and unique futuristic world with a fantastic story arch. Not being familiar with the franchise, I dove in with no expectations and was pleasantly surprised and happy with the game. The story RPG elements are fun, the world gritty and engaging, and the mix of stealth and action gameplay gives great variety. Overall the game was a smooth ride. I definitely suggest giving it a go.

This game is almost perfect, is the prequel of the great deux ex, a stealth/rpg game, this game is kinda hard, but nothing too hard if you play it stealthy.
+It had a great story, hell yes is cool and interesting, this game talk about the meaning of being human, cool stuff.
+Smoth gameplay, great cover mechanics, sweet dialogo threes, an awesome skill three and you can modified your weapons.
+Interesting sidequest, doit all you can change the game for good or bad if you decide to do something "different" on a side quest. awesome!
+An detailed world and it reward exploration and experimentation, is not a sandbox game like TES games or Fallout, but is still fun looking for cool gear and things to hack and reading "books" on this game is cool.
-Generic boss battles.
-The main character is to flat in comparison with the world.
-Lip animation desync.
For me is a must buy if you like games with great story and with lots of things to explore.
Can't Even Play :(rslancer | July 14, 2014 | See all rslancer's reviews »
So I didn't really even get to play the game because this game's got head bobbing. I find that it makes me dizzy/nauseous and I'm sure there are plenty of other people out there with my problem because you can see on forums people complaining about it.
What aggravates me is that they haven't fixed it. I don't see why there shouldn't be an option to turn the head bobbing off. I'm not even sure why developers these days are so intent on making the head bob effect. Its not like we walk around seeing our world go up and down. Either way no way to turn it off so I can play five minutes at a time before succumbing and giving up. If your like me save your money and yourself some dizzying and don't buy the game.
An Underrated Gamemrminecrafter1 | July 13, 2014 | See all mrminecrafter1's reviews »
Deus Ex: Human Revolution is an extremely good game in my opinion. In this game, you could do basically anything. Blow up a car, hide a body, the typical open-world stuff. The depth of the systems implemented in this game is surprising deep especially the stealth system which is done pretty well. Graphics are pretty good with impressive lighting. The story is a bit corny at times but still pretty good at best. Overall I would recommend this game. RPG + Action + Open-World = Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Recommended.
Return to Deus Ex Form884okeoJ | July 13, 2014 | See all 884okeoJ's reviews »
After Invisible War dragged the Deus Ex name through the mud, Human Revolution brings the series back up to its very high standards. You have multiple ways to go through each mission, and multiple ways to build your character. While there isn't as much freedom as the original Deus Ex, Human Revolution is still an impressive game. The graphics are quite good, and the music is fantastic. The FPS and RPG elements are balanced well, and the game as a whole is a rewarding experience. Definitely pick this game up if you haven't already.

i adore the Deus Ex games, even the one whose name should not be mentioned. i am happy to say this is a great follow up to the gaming series. like most hardcore fans of the game there’s only one real way to play, and that’s a no kills play through. *i personally up the difficulty to the highest setting because i am actively avoiding confrontation. this is the Directors Cut version of the game, looks great and can be played on Windows or OS X. i mentioned playing a non lethal play through. with the original you weren't able to beat the boss fights without fighting. the first boss you could by throwing things at him and shocking him repeatedly with your stun gun, only for a cut scene showing him riddle with bullet holes.. not good. with this version they have “fixed” the boss fights. there’s now an alternative way to beat each boss. the game plays nice, looks nice, sounds nice. the visuals are great but the music in the game really impressed me. i’ve played the game many times so for me i wanted to play through again hearing some of the games documentary commentary from the people who made the game. there’s also improved textures which is also great for us PC owners, but the best part is the new game + mode in which all your augmentations carry over. so perhaps you weren’t too confident to stealth your way through the game the first time, playing through again with all your augments at the start is at least worth a try.
caveat emptor (buyer beware): as much as i like the Deus Ex games, specially this one. i would rather play the original non directors cut version of the game. Steam no longer sells it but GMG still does. it’s just the little differences, the Gold/Yellow tint to everything is now gone. i liked that, i liked how the people looked, how the cities looked. the textures are “better” but i would rather the feel of the original.
