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.
* Features *
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.

While the story isn't quite up to where it's predecessors are at, I still was engaged and enjoyed my time spent with Human Revolution. The series does stay true to providing a lot of different ways to tackle situations, and some very satisfying execution/takedown moves. There's even a way to not have to kill anyone (except the bosses)! The bosses are probably the biggest letdown, as they were actually contracted out to a 3rd party, and so don't quite flow with the rest of the game. They're not terrible, but they just kill the flow a bit. I don't regret a second of playtime (except where I was supposed to do chores and got in trouble).

This game is a shooter done right. You have tons of options of how to go about beating the levels. If you like being sneaky you can, if you want to blow everything up you can, if you don't want to kill anyone, you can.
I wish more games used such an intuitive cover based system. That's one of the most frustrating things of many shooters is the inability to get into cover in a realistic way. This game manages to pull that off.
And not only is the game play great the story is great too. The only downfall is the ending is not super polished. It feels like the developers hit a due date and rushed to finish it from a certain point. Most of the game's story is great though.
If you haven't played it yet, what have you been doing with your gaming life?!
So damn fun!SinisterDragon | March 15, 2014 | See all SinisterDragon's reviews »
This was the first Deus Ex game I ever played so I didn't know what to expect. But upon playing for about 10 minutes I was hooked. While this looks like a standard 'run and gun' action game I assure that its not. Instead of fighting you can sneak past everyone or hack into their cameras and turrets or, in some cases, even just talk the enemy down and of course you could also shoot everyone if you wanted to. This is one of my favourite games and I would recommend it to anyone who's even slightly interested. Such an amazing game.

This game is sooooooo addicting and I made sure to play through it a few time just so I could see how things could play out all the different ways. I just wish the story was a little bit longer or if you could create your own campaigns or add ons.
Either way, the setting is great and very reminiscent of the cyberpunk era. The upgrades are pretty sweet and I found that the longer I played the game the more I was trying to play through it in ghost mode. Using all my abilities to the fullest and trying to figure out the best way to finish the levels. The graphics are great but can run a little slow at times (would probably run better on a desktop than a laptop).

Deus Ex : Human Revolution had a hard reputation to live up to. As a sequel to one of the most highly regard games of all time, there was a lot of skepticism that it could live up to the expectations. Deus Ex certainly does not disappoint. It is a highly polished gem that expertly blends action, stealth and some role-playing into a game that rewards different styles of play, with none of its traits feeling underdeveloped or unrewarding.
What makes Deus Ex so distinct is how it lets you choose how you want to play it. You can go in shoot your way through any problems, but then you'll miss out on opportunities to explore, sneak past particularly difficult parts, or engage in conversations that open up new options for you. You'll grow stronger as you unlock new augmentations and new abilities, and when you play through it again, the different choices you make will effect how you apporach the game.
The setting is rich and vividly rendered, a fascinating near future cyberpunk world gripped with a very real moral issue. Each environment is fully realized and helps creative an immersive game world. It takes an interesting look at exploring the concept of what it means to be human, with arguments made on both sides of the transhumanism debate.
Deus Ex : Human Revolution is one of the strongest games to come out in the past several years, and a must play for anyone looking for a more intelligent action and stealth game.
