This was my first foray into the Deus Ex Universe and definitely not the last. Deus Ex: Human Revolution takes place in a plausible near future setting with a striking and complex narrative that asks some compelling questions. The real strength in this game comes in the versatility of the progression system. Something that may seem like a simple upgrade can drastically alter how someone may approach a particular scenario and even alter the outcome of many events within the game. Everything from the art direction to sound design is simply stunning, with the signature orange glow permeating the throughout the cyberpunk backdrop as well as one of the best soundtracks I have had the pleasure of listening to. Deus Ex is all about versatility and challenges the player to think outside the box throughout much of its fantastically crafted campaign. In my opinion, its an absolute must for just about anyone that is looking for an involved and thought provoking experience.

When I played the original Deus Ex, I was too young to fully enjoy it, so I can't say I was a fan of the series, but when Human Revolution was first shown it hooked me right away, the promise of multiple paths around the level, the do it your own way style of gameplay was promised a lot but rarely delivered properly, but boy did Deus Ex HR deliver it. There were choices in abundance in the game whether it be in the story, missions or the way you played, the gun play was average to good, but the stealth was amazing, though I'm more for the stealth approach so I might be biased. This is one of very few games that I actually played through more than once to experience different ways of playing, and enjoyed it either way, picking one play style over the other did not detract from the game at all. Aside from gameplay the game excels as well, the graphics are gorgeous, I love the black and gold theme, it's sleek and just feels properly futuristic, the soundtrack is also great and fits the setting perfectly and really gets you into the game.
A linear RPG in the guise of a freeformZaggeta | May 8, 2015 | See all Zaggeta's reviews »
Deus Ex: Human Revolution (henceforth: DEHR) is a first-person action RPG. The gameplay centers around choices between stealth or action and investigation. Upgrades and different choices throughout the game allow players to diversify their experience and incentivises multiple playthroughs. The story is probably the highlight of the game as the player follows a man seeking truth and vengeance in a world on the cusp of technological revolution. Where the game truly suffers is its boss fights as a usually choice-based game forces decisions upon the player. In this regard, the game reveals itself to rather be a linear singleplayer experience disguised as a limited freeform RPG. If you love cyberpunk and you don't mind heavily limited freeform, then consider buying this game.
A fun game all aroundBlockAgent | May 7, 2015 | See all BlockAgent's reviews »
I never played the first Deus Ex game, but I was able to jump right into Human Revolution and understand what was happening. So if you didn't play the first game, no worries. Human Revolution is a fun and exciting game that gives you the feeling that you are in control of what happens in the game and that you can approach it however you want. That is rare even in today new releases. I had a lot of fun doing some section being stealthy and some with guns a-blazing. The gameplay is solid. The controls are solid. The graphics are still good in 2015. The story is a little on the thin side, but what is there is very well done. There are memorable characters as well. Overall I had alot of fun playing this game and I recommend it to everyone who likes a good first person shooter or stealth game.

This is one of the few games I regret purchasing. The story was plain, the ambientation was good, but it somehow didn't work for me. The few stealth missions were not too enjoyable, and the bosses were too weak. I didn't feel hooked at all, and believe me, I tried, but no. I guess I'm not the sci fi kind of player, but I didn't like this.
