Its a great game, but has a hard time living up to the legacy.gamma_rad | June 13, 2015 | See all gamma_rad's reviews »
Deus Ex Human Revolution is definitely a good game, and its worth a buy, However I feel as if it might've done better as an IP by its own right rather than part of the Deus Ex franchise as it raises the expectations. Pros: *Good solid stealth-action game. You can go full on weapons or full on stealth, or mix the two at your desire. *Good graphics and voice acting. *Augmentations, the ability to customize your characters skills and abilities and in so doing provide new ways of going around the game. for example the Casie augmentation will help you talk you way out or into things, providing new ways to complete missions. *Engaging plot. Cons: *Cinematic take down button felt overpowered and nonsensical. *Completely gone away with melee weapons, which were the staple weapons of stealth Deus Ex. *Some discrepancies with the lore established in Deus Ex. *Ending is disappointing (here's hoping the sequel will fix that) *Yellow-Orange tint.
Cyberpunk stealth with a lot of choiceSoapmac72 | June 10, 2015 | See all Soapmac72's reviews »
Deus Ex: Human Revolution is the latest entry in the legendary Deus Ex universe, and it lives up to the legacy. It's chock full of decisions to make, from the story decisions affecting the plot to the gameplay decisions. Do you take it stealthy and quiet, or do you go in guns blazing? Do you take lives or do you spare them? The plot and stealth gameplay as well as the plethora of cybernetic upgrades are incredible, but the game as a whole is marred by weak shooting. Would recommend based on a stealth playthrough.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution knocked my socks off in a lot of ways. From it's drop-dead gorgeous visuals, to gripping and deep story, to it's open-ended gameplay which allows you to go in guns-a-blazing or sleuth your way stealthily to the goals. Being a fan of the original Deus Ex game, I had held my breath for quite a long time for a company to take the reigns on the franchise and give it a well-deserved 3rd installment, and Eidos Montreal did a superb job. The Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Directors Cut takes the original HR game and throws in some goodies, including the extra Tong mission, and the Missing Link interlude. Both add value to the game. The Tong mission is optional, though wroth playing to add a little more background to some of the characters. The Missing Link interlude adds a good deal of backstory into a later feature of the plot. Spoilers aside, I'll say that I enjoyed going back and playing through this extra chapter. My only complaint about the game is that it, like all games, ended. I could have easily dropped 100+ hours of time into this game, and would have thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of them. For $19.99, you can't go wrong.

Deus Ex: HR is challenging to review it could be best stealth game from Square Enix. Gameplay has it's issues with many scripted take downs. but it is a limited free form RPG but the good stuff about it was the graphics were gorgeous, I love the black and gold theme game play was good too.
Good Stealth Title with amazing plot!kauppinensb | June 4, 2015 | See all kauppinensb's reviews »
Deus Ex: HR is challenging to review. It is better than basic stealth games, and it could be best stealth game from Square Enix. Gameplay has it's issues with many scripted takedowns and actions which are breaking immersion. In my opinion, this game is good because it allows player to choice way to play game. You aren't only to allowed choose your route. You are also allowed to make decisions which have their sanctions or benefits. And you can completely create your character with your own taste. Main character is cyborg (human with robot parts including all vitals) who can unlock his hidden abilities after gaining needed resources. My character was polite and agile stealth-boy with cloaking ability and some nice hand-to-hand skills. There is also much discussion in along gameplay. You can solve many hard situations with your mouth (without fight). Game is good because it allows much freedom and challenge. And amazing plot with much of philosophy. This game have much discussion and answers about "what is human" and "do robots have feelings". I don't like some aspects of this game. There is freedom, but still some areas are too few populated (for example mega-size cities) and looking same. There is too much scripted things and cockpit changes (game is mainly experienced from first-person perspective). End game is too easy because you can develop your character overpowered (you can cloak yourself invisible very long times). End game maps are too easy. Graphics are nice (own individual style), but some textures are horrible and console-like (consoles like ps2 and original xbox). Still I enjoy the game. I think it is not so masterpiece that Metacritic's reviewers are writing. But game is very cheap and usually at sales nowadays;)
