This game is very diverse, You can go loud and attack everyone or play stealth and not be spotted.You can attack random civilians if you want. You can even hack into other peoples computers. That's why this game is nice. You can play however you want to. There's also a number of upgrades, which can enhance the gameplay. The graphics are nothing special but the music is really good.

I remember the ads for this game. I remember one of the biggest pushes for this game was how you could do whatever you wanted in terms of RPing and fighting. If you wanted to be super stealthy, go invisible and take out one guard blocking your own, then sneaking past all the others, you could! Or if you prefer to make sure no one was left standing but the bullet casings that expended from your gun after you exited the room, then you could totally do that, too. The only problem ended up being that, in gameplay terms, the biggest push was definitely for stealth. The AI seemed to have some issues, overall, as well - issues such as trying to take cover in the middle of an aisle, or running from cover to cover in weird or awkward ways. The storytelling and RP, of course, are great. The story is presented as in depth and intricate, with so many different things to do and see and explore. The voice acting is overall well done. However, the main character's voice really grates on me personally - I'm not sure if he intends to stay monotone and flat, but it really bars the emotions that are conveyed by other NPCs. Overall, a good game with a lot of options and exploration possibilities. However, I can't wholeheartedly recommend it unless you have previous experience with the Deus Ex game, or have seen trailers of the new one coming out and want to know how this story-arch begins.
Great stealth game with nice storyMurderbot735 | July 27, 2015 | See all Murderbot735's reviews »
In this game you play as Adam Jensen who after an incident got heavily modified with cybernetics. You've basically turned into a super badass. The plot is really interesting, and there's also many nice side missions. Stealth is in my opinion the most satisfying way to complete missions, especially since the shooting isn't that great (but still decent), and rewards the biggest amount of XP. The graphics are technically not that impressive but still good, but very yellow-ish. The world feels very well built with a great attention to detail, and it's very immersive. Adam Jensen himself isn't the most interesting main character ever, but still pretty cool. It does also work on pretty much every computer ever, so please buy it.
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.
