Deus Ex is BackNShep53 | April 11, 2016 | See all NShep53's reviews »
Deus Ex: Human Revolution DC is the complete version of the prequel/sequel to the legendary Deus Ex. Set 25 years before that original game, you play as Adam Jensen, a security guard for a large biotech company that suffers a terrorist attack. You receive major injuries to your body and your ex-girlfriend is killed. A few months later, you are rebuilt using augmentations and are now on the case to find out why you were attacked and why she was killed. In true Deus Ex form, you go to various different cities, uncovering the truth* with a conspiracy filled adventure that only Deus Ex can provide. The game play is very much the same as the original but just in a modern way. I loved the OG Deus Ex and thoroughly enjoyed Human Revolution. 84/100 *May Not Be the Truth
Stealthy goodnessstorm84 | Feb. 28, 2016 | See all storm84's reviews »
Deus Ex: Human Revolution is one of those rare games that does stealth well. The levels are designed in such a way that being stealthy and exploring without drawing attention to yourself is rewarded, yet playing that way requires patience (and the occasional reload). The only drawback in this mode of playing is that the stealth doesn't extend to boss fights, so one can be left ill-equipped to handle those occasional necessary firefight moments. The success of DX:HR, however, is its storytelling. Even though the missions are a linear sequence, occasionally punctuated by a city to explore, there's enough story and story points that keep the game moving along. Doing the extra missions and reading through eBooks and emails all adds to the world building, and that makes for a successful immersion. The only downside of the Director's Cut is the additional story mission (originally a DLC) fits awkwardly into the main storyline, and is big enough that it loses the flow that the rest of the game built up so well. That bugbear aside, this is how action RPGs should be done.
Wonderful cyberpunk fun.bullkrieg | Jan. 23, 2016 | See all bullkrieg's reviews »
I had a great time playing this game. Some of the boss fights are a little bit broken but it's forgivable for how fun the rest of the game is. Good story, great atmosphere. Solid graphics, a very competent shooter, super fun hacking, great stealth. It's one of those games that you can solve problems in many different ways and all of them are viable in there own way, which makes getting around problems and finding solutions feel so much more rewarding because you can do it the way you want to, not the way the game is trying to make you. Overall had a great time playing, totally worth it.
Great game if you can put the time inChadWicky | Jan. 11, 2016 | See all ChadWicky's reviews »
Great stealth gameplay, with a lot of optional exploration. It has stealth, combat, loot, and exploration. You can play it like a shooter, but you will die.... a lot. The game rewards you for taking your time and exploring. Finding secret pathways and areas. The combat is pretty solid, and the augmentation system can almost turn you into a super hero. The game is dark though, with a great dialogue system. The voice acting is great, the graphics and setting really stand out to me as unique. There is loot, and weapon mods, along with ability mods for Adam. The game also runs pretty smooth, which always a plus.

I thought this game would never end. It's a great game - Deus Ex is the quintessential cyberpunk stealth franchise - but there were parts of this game that just felt like it was being dragged on and on for no real reason. On the plus side, it's got loads of fun augments, good stealth mechanics, challenging gameplay, and an excellent storyline.
