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.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is the return to one of the most critically acclaimed video game franchises of all time. The game tells the story of Adam Jensen, a man cybernetically augmented against his own choice who finds himself in the middle of a global conspiracy to which he holds the key. By offering players the chance to advance through the game in multiple and vastly different ways, Deus Ex: Human Revolution challenges the foundations of gaming and provides an immersive experience where every choice has a lasting consequence.

  • The long-awaited return of the award winning franchise that blends the best of Action and RPG: the perfect mix of combat, stealth, hacking, and social gameplay.
  • Play as Adam Jensen, a mechanically augmented agent: customize and upgrade your character with more than 50 unique augmentations that support your style of play.

My gaming setup: AMD X6 1090xt, Windows 7 Ultimate x64, GTX 480, 256GB RAID 0
Crucial M4 for the game partition, 16 GB 1866MHz DDR3.

Here's a very brief background of how much time I spent playing the original
Deus:Ex. I beat the game 5 times including once where I just killed 3 targets
total and used stealth / darts. I loved the original and it's the only game
for the PC that I've bought twice (the CD got damaged during a move). With
that in context, I groaned when I heard about this game. DE: Invisible War
was such a failure that I didn't really expect anything from this game.

Then I read the reviews on metacritic and as I don't trust most reviews anymore,
I wasn't sure what to think. I figured I'd bite the bullet and play the game and
find out. I started playing the game wanting to prove myself right and wanting to
hate the game. That wasn't hard in the first 10-15minutes. The combat system was
not what I expected (this is during the first action sequence) - the AI shot straight
and it didn't take a lot of bullets in "normal" mode to bring you down. My ego
satisfied about how I was right about this game being "meh", I figured I'd play for
a little longer and then the spirit of the original Deus Ex showed itself.

I kept playing for 5 hours and was completely hooked. I was wrong about my
assumption but I didn't care. I didn't even care for the main story-line at one point.
Oh "steal stuff from morgue?" I'll get to it. I love exploration and side-quests and
there's plenty of that. There's innovating hacking that rewards you for taking risks.
The game environment is pretty well done although not as good as the original DE.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Quite a Revolution January 23, 2012
Verified Purchase
Let's get the history out of the way. The original Deus Ex game, published in 2000, was a flawed masterpiece, a revolutionary video game that took the context of a first-person shooter game and added elements of role-playing games, open world sandboxes and cinematic narrative to create a truly original game. It's 2003 sequel, Deus Ex: Invisible War, was not and the less said about it, the better. While the story of the original game did carry the gentle scent of hackneyed plot, the game allowed the player a freedom to create one's own unique experience with the plot that it transcended its genre trappings. Multiple endings and multiple branching points in the plot really shaped a very customized experience for the player, regardless of which ending the sequel decided to establish as "canon."

Deus Ex: Human Revolution tries very very hard to live up to the original, and it does - though that achievement is not such a positive thing a decade later.

First, the good. The game's musical score is top notch, a mixture of ambient techno and driving beats that stuck with me even after I exited the game. The atmosphere, both in ambient sound, artistic style and textures also succeeded, establishing a high bar. Even though my next few paragraphs are going to eviscerate the game, overall, the experience was a positive one, and I can recommend the game to fans of the original.

However, the game has some serious flaws. The most glaring one is the boss battles. Though there were only four (4) bosses to defeat, these fights were TERRIBLE. On normal difficulty, they were frustratingly bad - death was almost instantaneous if you happened to tread one millimeter the wrong way.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic stealth/action platformer June 17, 2013
Verified Purchase
There's not much else to say that hasn't been said elsewhere about this game. Outside of boss fights you're given an option to fight through levels stealthily, non lethal or with guns blazing. It's nearly open world in its size and scope. There are multiple ways to accomplish various tasks. Finally, it has a pretty solid story to be told that's enhanced through various in game items that you find along the way.

If you like Dishonored, Mirrors Edge or Assassins Creed you will probably like this game as well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not optimized correctly for the PC. June 4, 2012
Verified Purchase
I can play Crysis 2 and Assassins Creed Revelations at full tilt on my box, but this game is chunky and not optimized correctly for the PC. Plus you can tell it's a port but the stiff movements of the character.

Probably a good game for a console but skip it on PC.

This game is brilliant. Amazing story, from start to finish. Loved the upgrade system. Gives you many way to beat it, you can be a stealth killer or go all guns blazing. Whichever you prefer it is fun. Boss battles are too easy in my opinion, but other than that it's good. Plenty of guns, and powers. Runs flawlessly on PC.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's the Gameplay July 9, 2013
Verified Purchase
I have played all of the Deus Ex games and consider this one the best. If you are into stealth based hybrid shooter/RPG's you cannot go wrong for this price. The original Deus Ex was one of the first titles to combine these different styles of gameplay.

Though not as in depth as the original it has enough depth to keep you interested. If you are looking to run and gun this is not the game for you. This game is best played as a ghost, taking everything possible from a level leaving no trace. It an extremely refreshing break from the typical game. Note: As has already been stated elsewhere the Boss encounters are sorta meh but that is a minor distraction from an otherwise great game.

I played this on the XBOX 360 and wanted to try out the gameplay on the PC. As the title says, this game is not really interested in setting any new graphics benchmarks (even when it was first released). The game looks fine, the artistic style is great. Not much difference graphically between the PC version and XBOX 360.

There are a number of ways to play the game so multiple replays are necessary(?) to accomplish everything. If you really like this type of game multiple playthroughs are just fun.

If you are like me you will spend this much or almost this much on chips and soda during the day ($5), just get it.
