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.
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.
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.

This is the best game I have ever played. I have several other games I have enjoyed very well (skyrim noteworthy among them) but none of them was as compelling as this one. Game play was so fun and there's a decent replayability because there is a lot of flexibility in how you can play. I find it most fun to play full stealth. I have played the whole game through (except the beginning) without firing a shot. Well, if you don't count boss fights. Just like everyone else, I dislike the boss fights.
My only beef is that I wish it was longer, or that they made a good sequel. For some reason they are putting effort into writing a sequel for tablets. Dumb move, square-enix. When you have a great franchise you should give people what they want instead.

I've played this game a few times...at least the start. The problem isn't that it fails to be enjoyable, because it absolutely is. The problem is simply that at a certain point in my playthroughs...I quit. There's just something lacking in the title, and as much as I really enjoy it and want to finish it, the game itself slows to the point where I just don;t have enough impetus to do so.
Still, great gameplay and stunning visuals mix with a wonderful (if slow in the middle) story and killer music. DEx:HR is awesome. I just wish I could power through to get to the end...

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. The
interface for weapons/quests/map is a well-designed one. You make choices and they have
consequences. They really do. There are also lots of references to the earlier game
and to general humor (Nigerian email scam for e.g.,).
Combat seemed a little off as if the developers intentionally want you to use assault
as a last resort. The game rewards you for finding hidden passages in general. You get
rewarded for merciful takedowns where you don't kill your enemies. You get rewarded if
no one spots you when you are on objectives where you walk into enemy dens. You are
rewarded if you trigger no alarms during an objective (or quest). Rewards are usually
XP, money, hacking tools. Maybe I need to get better with cover but this isn't Gears of War!
I didn't pay a lot of attention to the music which means it didn't annoy me. I was not
happy with the graphics in general. There are plenty of graphical glitches- some hard
to spot, some obvious but they don't really detract anything from the gameplay. The engine
seems to be outdated (probably explains the low hardware requirements) and graphics aren't
as shiny as trailers / screenshots led you to believe. The controls have a console-ish feel
to them. The fact you have to hold / tap a key to achieve different results is disappointing.
This is the PC for crying out loud - let us assign different keys if we want to.
Yes, this game requires Steam. Yes, you can quick save and quick load using F5 and F8
respectively. Saving is really fast but loading takes too long (the game is installed
on a RAID0 128GB Crucial M4 SSD set) and load times get progressively worse the longer
you keep playing the game. This is ironic and annoying because it's hard to stop playing.
Poor memory management? Please patch :(. I got about 3 hours of sleep last night.
+ Excellent gameplay, improves on many (not all) game elements from the original
+ Innovative rewards for taking additional risks during gameplay
+ Open sandbox style gameplay with a good number of side quests and exploration opportunities
+ Plenty of replayability / replay value in this game
+ Decent AUG tree / advancement system (see Cons)
- Graphics are disappointing. I wasn't expecting a Crysis but the engine looks old and the
glitches don't help
- AI suspicious / warning system feels half-baked
- The character advancement system feels inferior compared to the original Deus Ex (it's an RPG!)
- Gun combat is disappointingly weak and badly done (despite the "take cover" idea)
* Not sure why every female model in the game is busty - the way of the future? AUG implants? (harr harr)
* The futuristic cars/bicycles look silly at best but I guess cyberpunk is forgiving to a large extent
In conclusion, I was going to give this game 4 stars but with the amount of time and
enjoyment I'll get from this game, I might as well be honest with myself. This game is
nothing like the original but comes close enough. I know several years from now I'll pick
up a copy of Deus Ex to play again because that game was/is a cult classic. Human
Revolution probably won't make it to that category but is a strong contender for Game
of the Year 2011.
Update: The long loading times is now patched. The other thing I wanted to add is that the boss
fights can be really annoying to begin with. The first boss isn't walk in the park and can be very
annoying since you don't have a lot of augments and if you are like me, all your advancement is
in hacking and you carry around a tranquilizer rifle. That won't help against bosses where you
need a minimum amount of firepower. So be ready for a good amount of headache against boss-fights
at least in the first few hours...

This is a great game. This is a FPS game, with multiple ways to achieve every mission. There's no real RPG aspect (Augs + a few dialogue choices do not cut it for me).
The story is interesting (not everything is interesting, but the main idea is).
I completed it in 40 hours, going slowly and opening every drawer, hacking every lock/terminal/security panel, doing every side mission I found, breaking through every wall... So all in all, a good play time for a modern game.
My play style was: exploring everything, trying to kill from a distance (preference for a good clean kill with the 10mm handgun or sniper riffle if possible), rather than going undetected. On that regard, actions have no consequences. You can kill some cops in the police station for instance and not be hunted by cops outside of it. Civilians can be killed or not, without any impact on the story.
Anyway, I had most augmentations by the time I completed the story. I missed the cloaking augs (not useful for my play style), 2 hacking fortify and the hacking thing to view the content of a node, a couple of "legs" augs, 1 or 2 extra batteries, the double take down, some stealth augs and maybe another thing or two.
All in all, I felt I was at the max for what I needed. That was on the normal difficulty level.
I ended up the game with over 15 typhoon ammo packs and lots of ammo.
So a very entertaining game with a good story, but not something for the top 10 games of all times.
I'll likely buy the next Deus Ex if it's made as well as this one.
