You play Adam Jensen, an ex-SWAT specialist who's been handpicked to oversee the defensive needs of one of America's most experimental biotechnology firms. Your job is to safeguard company secrets, but when a black ops team breaks in and kills the very scientists you were hired to protect, everything you thought you knew about your job changes
Badly wounded during the attack, you have no choice but to become mechanically augmented and you soon find yourself chasing down leads all over the world, never knowing who you can trust. At a time when scientific advancements are turning athletes, soldiers and spies into super enhanced beings, someone is working very hard to ensure mankind's evolution follows a particular path.
You need to discover where that path lies. Because when all is said and done, the decisions you take, and the choices you make, will be the only things that can change it.
A divided near-future: discover a time of great technological advancement, but also a time of chaos and conspiracy. Mechanical augmentations of the human body have divided society between those who can afford them, and those who can't. Opposing forces conspire from the shadow to control the destiny of mankind: a human revolution is coming.
A perfect mix of action and role-play: the game uniquely combines action-packed close-quarter takedowns with intense shooting, offering a vast array of character augmentations and upgrades for the many weapons at your disposal. Unlock new abilities and increase your stealth, social, hacking or combat skills: the game rewards all styles of play and approaches. Determine how you want your character to evolve, based on how you want to play the game.
Choices and consequences: shoot your way through your enemies, sneak up behind them without being traced, hack systems to retrieve crucial information, or use your social skills to extract information from key characters - there are always choices, multiple approaches, multiple paths and multiple tools at your disposal. Choose your playing style and face the consequences of your actions: you decide how the story unfolds.
My favorite game of all time!manvelmard | May 14, 2013 | See all manvelmard's reviews »
It will be so hard for another game to top this for me. Hands down the best single player action-rpg game. So much choices to make and so many places to explore. The story is so interesting and every character has good depth. If you're into these type of games... BUY THIS RIGHT NOW!!! You won't regret it. Not the mention the soundtrack is also awesome!

Like a lot of people, I was skeptical when I heard about a new Deus Ex game. The last game, Invisible War was a big disappointment to me and the fans of the orignal but thankfully I was wrong
Deus Ex is about choice, and Human Revolution hits that out of the park. Do you want to sneak past your enemies with a cloaking augmentation after watching your enemies move routes through walls with the eye aug, or do you want to sneak around and pick off each enemy with tranquilizer darts, hiding each body from view like a silent predator? Do you want to augment yourself to be Cyberpunk Rambo? You can. Grab a machine gun and utilize your defense aug, making your skin hardened against bullets. Do you want to be a weird Hulkified dude who's obsessed with throwing fridges and dumpsters at your enemies? Put some points into strength augs. Want to be a hacker and use hostile security terminals, turrets, and robots against your enemy? Done. Like to talk your way out of situations? Invest in the cerebral aug that lets you better read people's expressions, helping you find each conversation's weak points.
There is so much choice in this game, and there are so many paths in each level to take, that I think Human Revolution rivals or even surpasses Deus Ex. It's that good. The levels are huge - especially the city hubs where you can talk to various NPCs and get a bunch of sidequests.
The gunplay is good (and a massive improvement over the original), the stealth is good (with nice little touches like patrols that turn around and walk backwards for a few moments). The hacking minigame is actually fun and involved, unlike most minigames. It also evolves as the game progresses, becoming more difficult and varied, with more ways to hack as well. The game has top notch production values - The graphics, sound and art direction are all excellent Everyone should buy and support this game. We need more like it. I don't want to wait another 10 years for a new great Deus Ex game.
An awesome adventureXentrig | May 11, 2013 | See all Xentrig's reviews »
While the game certainly has it's fair share of problems and glitches, they aren't usually enough to ruin the level of immersion. It features all of the genres now classic mechanics, and will feel great to anyone who enjoys the sandbox style rpg game. Fans of elder scrolls, fallout, and games that are similar, who have a little bit of a sci-fi geek within them will fall in love.
The level of detail to both the characters and the world you play in is outstanding. The combat is slightly mediocre, this game is more for the story.
A lengthy, specatcular adventureacloggedtoaster | May 10, 2013 | See all acloggedtoaster's reviews »
This game is a fun, unpredictable, entertaining, 15+ hour long RPG/shooter/action game. It is incredibly unique, as it effectively brings together role playing with shooting and action, but also finds an equilibrium, making sure one genre does not overpower the other. The story is mediocre and the game starts off slowly, but 4 hours in, you will find a rich world with interesting characters and nice visuals. The PC optimization on this game is also spectacular. I highly recommend this title.

this game is a fantastic rpg/shooter , the level layouts allow for a different play style if desired however stealth does seem to be the best option. The story and characters are great, this then makes all them hours you can put into it even more enjoyable. Great value for money as there is plenty to do and the game allows for other play styles not just stealth
