Quick story: When I got the game in the mail, I was excited and thrilled. I put it into the PS3 and waited for installation. The menu pops up, I'm on the edge of my seat already (having LOVED the first Deus Ex). Played through the first part and felt like Deus Ex finally when back to it's roots. It reminded me of the first one (I didn't care much for the second one). I played for 12 straight hours I COULD NOT PUT THIS GAME DOWN.
Gameplay: Very easy controls to learn, I didn't like L3 being crouch because the boss battles I kept pressing it when I was trying to dodge. The customization with Augs is nice. The graphics are amazing minus the couple few glitches. The voice acting was spot on Adam reminded me of JC Denton. The stealth I had a hard time doing so ended up resorting to unleashing bullets on everyone most of the time. The AI can be pretty stupid. Block their path and they're stuck. The HACKING is so much fun to me. Picking up a taken over turret and dragging it with me made it too easy sometimes ;)
Would I recommend this game? Yeah! A few reviews I read that claim they couldn't get into it and the game is dead and empty didn't play it long enough. The conspiracies are never ending. LOVE IT!
Most people reading this probably have never even heard of the original Deus Ex. However, the original game was a pioneer among the gaming industry by fusing the first person experience with stealth, all the while keeping a strong open-world RPG back bone. The original Deus Ex is without a doubt one of the best games I have ever played. However, seeing as how recent sequels to old games (Duke Nukem, Wolfenstein) have not been up to par, I was a bit skeptical about buying the game on release. However, I went back to the memories I had playing the original, and bought it. I was not disappointed! This game is WONDERFUL. Everything has been worked out, from a carefully designed hacking system, to a complex AI system that uses a line of sight detection and sound, as well as noticing thing out of the norm (doors left open). This game is not one to miss and will not displease anyone who enjoys using strategy in their games as opposed to a run and gun. Don't get me wrong, you can do run and gun, but then the elements that sets this game apart from your standard FPS/RPG are lost. If I had to give a description of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, I would say it went like this: Deus Ex: Human Revolution is like the stealth systems from Splinter Cell (but revamped and cleaned up) and the FPS/RPG elements from Fallout. You will not be disappointed with Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
