Deus Ex: Human Revolution
From the Manufacturer
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.

So far, I have earned 18 augmentation upgrade points. I found 2, bought 4, and earned the rest. I have 60k+ XP and 29k+ credits. I have not had any problems earning Praxis (augmentation) points or credits.
This game rewards exploring. I have been places that were seemingly dead ends only to earn XP and find cool gear. I've hacked my way into every nook and cranny, especially outside the quests, and earned more XP and found more cool gear. In one instance, I bought a gun upgrade from an arms dealer. Just around the corner in an out-of-the-way location was the same upgrade! So, I sold the newly found upgrade which helped me recoup some credits, 750 to be exact.
The inventory only allows one gun per type. Therefore, I made many trips to the arms dealer to sell off all the guns from one of the street gangs I had fought. Although this was tiresome, having to run across town to sell one gun at a time, I made 2.5k doing so. Players will most likely upgrade the inventory space, which can be upgraded 3 times, in order to carry more guns. Some guns, like the rocket launcher, take up a LOT of space, heh.
XP is great. Cap an enemy, get XP. Stun them instead, get more XP. Bypass the enemy, leaving them alive, and get even more XP! There is XP for exploring, as well. See an airshaft but don't really need to travel that way? You should! Get even more XP!
The game looks great. There is a lot of detail in the graphics. The artistry is very good. Although the facial expressions are not as good as, say, L.A. Noire, they are still very good for 2011. I also like the sound. I planted two land mines in order to help with some tough targets, and when they went off it was nice and loud. Wow.
Deus Ex plays well. The enemies are all crack shots, however, and your character can be killed rather easily. Luckily there is an augmentation upgrade to reduce damages by 15/30/45%. This is only a little bit helpful since 2-3 bad guys can still ruin your day. As a hint, try and get the 30% by the end of the first city hub's quest line. I will have to say that if you are a very good shooter FPS player then your aiming skills will be put to good use. I am not that good at aiming fast, but I manage to win anyway. This is a fun game. It allows a player to slowly pick off the lame guards one at a time. I don't use cloaking but I do use stealth movement, meaning I move from cover to cover, of course, and sometimes I can get through an area without having to engage too many bad guys.
The best way to get ammo is to use the weapons of the enemy. I use the 10mm Pistol as my main gun, I have upgraded it in damage and all other categories, and many enemies use the 10 mil so I have lots of ammo. Currently, I have like 183 rounds of 10 mm. You'll want to carry extra guns since ammo can get touchy, especially early on. Of course, guns like the Combat Rifle and Machine Pistol are scatter guns and even a good shot will use ammo fast, which means you have to carry more ammo in your precious inventory space. Currently, I am not using the combat rifle, but I have a feeling I should switch to it. It has a very nice auto-lock on upgrade. My first gun was a .357 Magnum Revolver, but ammo is still kinda scarce for it. I have 43 rounds atm. It hits hard, but can't be silenced and is mainly short range. Oh, and the Shotgun is -very- nice! I also carry a Sniper Rifle. (I now have 21 sniper rounds and, er, like 48 shotgun rounds ... ammo is NOT a problem, although my inventory space is filled with guns and ammo and grenades and mines and edibles ... have 9 spots left! heh.)
Two negatives - no end mission screen and no stats. :(
Anyway, Deus Ex is an extraordinarily good experience. I really like this game. If anyone else plays it, I hope they like it too.
This latest title is, in all honestly, a great continuation of the original style (although, yes, it's technically a prequel) and absolutely worth finishing. After all is said and done this game deserves a solid 90% (no 1/2 stars on Amazon). Cool and enticing atmosphere, addictive and interesting gameplay and mechanics - this is one of those rare titles that gets it mostly right from the start.
Only after one continuous glowing review after another did I break the resistance of not wanting to purchase it for fear of disappointment. Only due to consistent high-scoring reviews did I take the plunge before my normal waiting period - even so, after hours upon hours of non-stop playing did I find relief in knowing it was worth it. And, by the way, rarely does a game not trigger my self-diagnosed ADD as this one easily evaded.
To me: the creators of this game clearly demonstrate that their attention to detail, love of the original, talent and dedication allowed this title to be as great as it is.
