Deus Ex Human revolution is a game that doesn't follow the rules of modern gaming. As gamers know,today games tend to be long corridors that lead to your objective.Deus Ex does exactly the opposite of that.
In this game you play as Adam Jensen,chief of security at Sarif Industries.After a terrorist attack Adam finds himself augmented and looking for answers about the attack.The story poses many interesting questions about what defines a human being and how science can shape human kind. In particular the dichotomy between augmentations supporters and human purists is well outlined and deep.To this elements we must add conspiracy theories,hidden plots and manipulation of the public opinion.
The real star of the game is its gameplay.How will you reach your objective?Take the main path and kill everyone?Use a vent and take the stealthy approach? Deus Ex does an exellent job of giving you the instruments to reach your goal however you like.In particular you can shape Adam as you please,for example choosing to spend all your upgrade points on stealth abilities. The mantra here is "Play the way you want".
The art style is a mix of futuristic neons and renaissance fashion.You play in a new golden age of humanity and your surroundings certainly show this.
This game is an instant classic,just like the original Deus Ex.It is a game that will be remembered in the years to come.
Director's Cut: Just Another EditionAzrael360 | Nov. 2, 2014 | See all Azrael360's reviews »
"Deus Ex: Human Revolution" was a real surprise for me, the game starts a little slow but then a major event happens and all hell breaks loose. The story is amazing, the missions are also part of this main story, and the way you can play the game is up to you according to your way and "mood". And depending of that, people will react to you or you will see some differences on each missions. The graphics are also very nice and the music is amazing, it nails the atmosphere of the game. The maps are very big, but not "open world", but as how you like to play you will find some secret areas or many ways to avoid direct contact with your enemies. The game is also very long, for completionists it should take at least 50 hours. For me, the game (excluding "The Missing Link" expansion) lasted 57 hours, and "The Missing Link" alone lasted 9 hours. The game also has gamepad support.
Now, this "Director's Cut" edition has some minor differences with the original base game: Includes all the DLCs (mostly new items and a bonus rescue mission) and "The Missing Link" expansion, all fused in the new edition as if they were part of the game. But this version also includes modified "boss levels" for people who like to play stealthy and want to avoid direct contact at all cost, although in the original those were never actually hard, because the bosses weren't difficult in the first place. The graphics also received a minor tweaking, some few textures were replaced by some others with more detail and some of the effects (the most notorious: the "gold" effect) has been minimized. The rest is practically the same. This edition also includes some bonus material, like the making-of videos and trailers, but it's missing others found in the previous "Augmented Edition", like the special (and amazing) game soundtrack and the motion comic. This edition also has some bugs and glitches that were fixed in the original edition but some some reason, they are here again, which is a shame.
Comparing this edition with the original, I honestly have to say, the original was much better, especially comparing it with the "Ultimate Edition", which I also have and love much more. That edition included the "Augmented Edition" plus all the DLCs and "The Missing Link" expansion, was more stable with already fixed bugs long ago, and looked better. If I were reviewing that edition it would have received a 95/100 from me. This new edition instead is getting an 85 from me. It almost impossible now, but if you have the chance, buy the "Ultimate Edition" instead, but this version is still a very enjoyable experience and a highly recommended game to buy if you still don't have it yet.

Just beautiful. This game has one of the best stories ever! you play as an agent of a mega-corporation that with a lot of weapons and cyber-implants must look for a group of scientists that disappeared some time ago...
But while you are looking for those scientists you will be stuck in a global conspiracy that will decide the future of the humanity...
When i finished this game i was really suprised, i never thought that it will have four amazing endings, you have the future of the humanity on your hands, you must decide what could be better for the earth, you are "Deus Ex Machina"...
Oh right, i almost forgot to talk about the gameplay... well, you have a lot of ways to finish a level, being aggressive or being a ninja without killing anyone (yes, you can finish this game without killing anyone except the bosses)

Well, not much can be said about this game that haven't been told already, what's more, this game speak for itself by bringing very large quality. You don't like fpp camera style? You preffer more action then stealth, you don't have much patience? Don't worry, you can enjoy deus ex human revolution anyway cause the plot and entire storyline will pull you in front of a desktop immediately and make you stuck completely for hours to this futuristic brilliant cyberpunk universe. You will just adapt to this game style, it can't be just easily explained. I compared this game always to batman arkham series and star wars kotor... You'll ask why... You can hate star wars and batman but fall in love with arkham and kotor thanks to extraordinary plot and perfect storyline, that's about it I guess, if you haven't played Deus ex then... Change it... instantly please, enjoy
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!
