 Deus Ex : Human Revolution

PostSubject: Deus Ex : Human Revolution   Thu Sep 15, 2011 11:19 pm

I've been asked to talk about this game after mentioning it on another thread.

I'm currently playing it on my PS3.

This is a hybrid stealth /action /RPG game. It has echoes of the games such as Splinter Cell, mixed with the Thief series. I'm only really in the early stages because I haven't had much chance to play this week, but so far its going well, and I'm enjoying it

You can basically opt for a full-on 'all guns blazing' combat style, or at the other end of the spectrum you can go out and out stealth. Apparently it is possible to go right through the game without every killing anyone, just by stealth. I've not tried it, but I'm assured it can be done.

I'm going for a middle way of stealth, but being willing to take down enemies by sniping if necessary. And, frankly, it does seem to be necessary, there are a lot of bad guys!

The story is a futurist conspiracy theory type thing, with shady corporations, corrupt government officials, dodgy politicians and so on. Voice acting is adequate, and the cut scenes reasonable with our being anything sensational. I'd categorise the graphics as being decent.

As for role playing elements, that centres around the 'augmentations' you can get - essentially these are implants that improve your character. So you can choose to sharpen stealth, tech, hacking, weapons, defence etc. To be honest its light on the role playing elements, its mainly a stealth- action game.

It's not fully open world, although once you get out of the building that is a tutorial you do have free run of a decent sized city. And there are quite a few side quests that you can pick up from characters around the streets. So its possible to play in a number of different ways and paths - but at the end of the day it is, I think, impossible to get anywhere without following the main quest

So that's a bit of summary. Ask questions if you like. i'd give it a solid 7/10, which might go a point higher if the story starts to get more interesting. I bought it to pass the time until Skyrim, and its doing its job quite effectively

Thanks for the review Paul71, it sounds like an interesting game. Is it just me or are there too many interesting new games being released?

From what you're saying it sounds like a fun game. It's a pity the RPing elements aren't more fleshed out. There is nothing wrong with action/stealth games but RPG elements are always a plus.

It does sound like a good game. I like that you have choices in behaviour. Is it out for the PC or just for the Console? Skyrim will be here very soon so I don't know how much time I will have for all the new games. Laughing Seems like feast or famine.

Deus Ex sounds like a game I would enjoy. Please keep us updated, Paul.
