Despite the quality of the combat, the emphasis on gameplay options, the diverse set of augmentations and the substantial side-missions, what will stay with me about Human Revolution is its focus on creating a rich, believable world filled with interesting characters, themes and conflicting ideals. The mere fact that it aims for such lofty narrative heights is commendable, the fact that it achieves them is worthy of celebration.

Deus Ex didn't come all of this way only to forget where it hailed from in the first place though. Touches of classic PC gaming pepper the experience (such as an old-school grid system for the inventory), ensuring that this is one legendary PC series that's managed to keep its head while all around it others are losing theirs.

Not only is there myriad optional computer systems to infiltrate, you also can grill other characters using your conversational skills. It's essentially dialogue-based combat. At various junctures in a conversation, you are asked to choose between three possible responses. Threats will get you everywhere with certain individuals, whereas others won't budge. Choosing the wrong tact can be costly, depriving you of valuable information permanently, but since this is a Deus Ex game, there's always another method of achieving your goal.

In fact, exploring a map gives me a bit of a self-determining Metroid feel -- I constantly see options like "if I had strength, I can move that dumpster," or "I could totally jump that if I upgrade my legs," or "I could have just jumped down if I had the Icarus parachute thing." Plus, it's through all this exploring that I find sly little references that tie this crazy conspiracy yarn to the original game (memos from Manderley, or an early experiment from Everett), which makes me smile.

Zoveel uur steken in een game is op zich niet bijzonder, dat heb je vaker bij RPG’s bijvoorbeeld. Toch is het bij een game als deze die voornamelijk op actie en stealth is gericht een bijzondere prestatie. Waar zie je dat immers vaker? Naar ons idee niet al te veel. Als we dan even terug kijken op de toppers van de afgelopen jaren, dan kunnen we in de laatste regels van deze recensie je meegeven dat dit één van de beste games is die we in de afgelopen twee jaar hebben gespeeld. Deus Ex: Human Revolution is anders, doet nieuwe dingen en is gewoon ontzettend vet. Een absolute must-have, waarmee het najaar van 2011 gelijk op het allerhoogste niveau van kwaliteit begint.

At the end of the day, Deus Ex: Human Revolution is an amazing game, one that ultimately lives up to its enormous hype, with only cons being the steep learning curve and some frustrating mini-games. So if you are core gamer, irrespective of whether you’re a FPS/RPG fan or not, you have to play this game. This might very well be the milestone action game in the FPS genre.

Ultimately, DXHR is just a joy to play, despite its somewhat anti-climactic final level and its slight tendency to overpower the player as time goes on with a few too many augments, weapons and credits. It would be a great game without its narrative; it would be a great narrative without its gameplay. Melded together, DXHR becomes the premier single player experience this year, and possibly for the last few years. Maybe even for this whole console hardware generation. This is a game you must play.

The result? While there are certain elements that may not please Deus Ex purists (the cover system comes to mind), Human Revolution is definitely a winning title with a whole lot of quality. It's definitely a game to look forward to if you have even the slightest interest in the genre, or even some good characters, and I'd say that it's certainly a worthy successor to the franchise. Some very minor flaws are present in controls, on the PC and consoles, but these can easily be overlooked by most. In short, it certainly looks like one of the best games this year, so pick it up if you get a chance.

Playing through Human Revolution, it was hard to find anything truly wrong with it. In terms of technical polish, it was one of the most polished release-builds I'd seen in a while, with few-to-none glaring technical hiccups. The only time where I felt genuine disappointment was in the last area of the game.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a game that is driven by its story; and believe me that's not a bad thing. While I can't go into great details, the story creates one of the most well-rounded gaming experiences in recent memory. You get a bit of everything with DXHR. You get an adventure that has first-person shooter, third-person action and role-playing elements wrapped into one gaming body. It's quite amazing how all the elements of the game combine to bring one solid story together.

All of this is punctuated by a far-reaching conspiracy story that, while not entirely free of the occasional melodramatic cliché, comes together nicely and just at the right pace to keep you interested in chasing that next breadcrumb without giving away too much information at any one juncture.

In conclusion, Deus Ex: Human Revolution is an excellent game. If you’re into Sci-Fi action dramas with a good storyline than this is the game for you. This is a great take on a futuristic spy action drama. The revolution will not be televised, because you’re going to be playing it. Great job Eidos, keep em coming.

Human Revolution is an imperfect, complex and ambitious reminder of what a game can be when it's unafraid.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is probably not as perfect as I'm making it sound. Some of the rules about what's interactive and not seem quite arbitrary, which is a pretty blatant failing in a game which tries so hard to make you feel like you're not being restricted, and while the level design is clever and varied, the interior design definitely is not, and there's also a lot of repetition in the incidental details. Sure, it's important to hear some of those looping news broadcasts, but maybe make them longer than half a minute or record variations or something.

Human Revolution’s graphics work extremely well, given the plot’s overtones of human manipulation and corruption. The black and golden hues saturate the screen to constantly remind you that this is a glimpse of technology gone wrong. There were several times throughout the lengthy campaign that I was ready for a new visual approach, as I found myself occasionally bored with the grit of city streets and ultra-polish of high-rise apartments and office buildings. But, it works really well through much of the game.

The plot of the game is to be admire in a world where everyone is finding a way to get augmentations you see humans that have augmentations and those that don’t. The game will not bored you as it keeps you involved throughout the whole game by hacking, making decisions, using stealth mode and collecting XP points to increase your augmentations and more. The games lacks in graphics, sound and during the gameplay the AI could have been smarter.
