Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Posted on Wednesday, August 31 @ 18:03:45 EDT by Suislide
FPS reviewsI was incredibly fearful when I first heard of this game because it was a resurrection of a franchise from years ago coupled with the fact that the last time they made a sequel it was one of the biggest fucking abominations to mankind. The Iraq war was more justified than Warren "Faggot" Spector releasing that fucking pathetic turd. Anyways, this is the reason he has fallen to working on crap like EPIC MICKEY and Eidos-Montreal has taken over development for Deus Ex: Human Revolution and holy ramming ass fucks did they fucking deliver! They actually gave us a Deus Ex game with a quality level that at least matches the first game! Read on to learn how Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a fucking quality title worthy of everyone's purchase.

Of course with consoles now days, everyone was fearing the same thing which happened to the original game. Levels would be fucking tiny blocks, universal ammo, no inventory, crap weapons and crap graphics. The game only delivers on one of those. Anyways, the graphics on a technical level are not the best which is made obvious because the game had quite a lengthy development cycle. The are low-resolution textures and shit that throughout the game, but honestly, who gives a fuck? Deus Ex didn't have great graphics when it was released in 2000 either. They just wanted to follow the same tradition that was set by the original title. What really makes the graphics fucking shine is the awesome cyberpunk art style that they used throughout the game. The game takes you to a shit ton of locations all around the world from Hengsha, Singapore, Detroit, Montreal and quite a few other locations. The environments (especially the hub cities of Detroit and Hengsha in the games) are filled with tons of detail. The environments don't look sparse in the slightest of the sense. Walking through the Detroit streets, there is shiny lights, clean looking rich areas, tall skyscrapers, lights everywhere and this is all mixed in with the dirty and poorer looking parts of the city. I.e. Backalleys, shitty apartments, and gang laden areas. The art style they chose for the game looks absolutely fabulous and really gives the sense of the same Cyberpunk world from the first game. One thing that I like is there is actually a ton of shit in the levels. For example, an office building has a fuck ton of desks, chairs, folders, binders, pens, computers and other shit laid all about the office to ACTUALLY MAKE IT LOOK LIKE SOMEONE WORKED THERE. Most games don't even reach this level of detail, so fuck it, I'll take some crappier graphics for a more immersive cyberpunk environment. The art style in the game is absolutely awesome.

The game starts you off as a simple human until an attack happens leaving you crippled with your only way to survive being mechanical augmentations. OF course you don't look like a pure fucking badass like JC Denton, but Adam Jensen still looks pretty fucking boss wearing his big ass trench coat and punching hookers as hard as he can in the face. The story in the game is every bit as enticing as the conspiracy laden original game. There is always a sense of mystery as to what is actually being uncovered and a sense of uneasiness on who you should actually trust. It brings about the same tension that you feel in the original game as you progress through it wondering what is ACTUALLY happening behind the scenes. One cool thing was the conversation system that they added where, with correct responses based upon a characters personality, you can get more information out of them or persuade them into helping you. It really added something extra to the intensity of the conflicts with certain key characters as Taggart, Sarif or Hugh Darrow.

Obviously the most important part of the game is the gameplay so let's get right fucking to it. The first game featured huge levels coupled with multiple paths and options to reach an objective and accomplish your goal. In this game, I was worried it would be something that they simply tacked on at the fucking end which made absolutely no sense. TO MY FUCKING SURPRISE, the level design is fucking class and best of all, it makes sense. From sneaking around in vents in Sarif industries, hidden locations and everything throughout the hub cities, to the missions in Montreal and everywhere, the levels are actually designed like their real life counter parts would be. Thus to reach a certain scientist, you could simply hack into his office, find hidden vents, or shoot through the glass on the roof and drop it. The options all make sense are out of place. Some of the facilities and science labs you visit have absolutely phenomenal level design and the levels are huge. Hell, going through the warehouses and labs in the first level took me a good 90 minutes to find everything to give an idea of how big the first level.

The game has all the same stealth and killing rules as the first game! Enemies on patrol, guarding areas. You can avoid them, knock them out with various weapons, or pop them in the back of the fucking head and drag their bodies out of sight. You will probably reload a billion times just trying to take out of a group of enemies as silently as possible! The stealth aspects in the game are absolutely fucking fun and follow all the same rules as the first game giving it that nostalgic feeling. Even down to the gas grenades choking people, and then me popping them in all the head with my pistol while their choking. I also masturbate to scenes like this, they make me horny. I, of course played on the "Give me Deus Ex" difficulty because I'm not a fucking pussy. Enemies will notice you quickly, and until you upgrade your mechanical augmentations, 2 to 3 pistol shots will take your chump as down, and it happens fast if you alert 2 or 3 guys. It is fucking nice and challenging, the way it should be. There is also a ton of fucking weapons in the game from pistols, stun guns, the co2 powered tranquilizer gun, heavy machine guns, plasma and laser rifles, rocket launchers, sniper rifles. The best part is that they are all up gradable and feature unique addons like the machine gun has the ability to have your bullets track enemies. I stealthed through the game as much as possible using my pistol and sniper rifle to take out bitches left and right. It is absolutely fun as hell and brings back all the love of the first game.

Hell the challenge in the game will make you want to reload your game and try to take out enemies in different manners just to see how many different ways you can do it! The augmentations in the game are awesome as well, reminiscent of the first game. In essence, you have the ability to fall great distances, see through walls, gather more information about enemies, cloak, lift huge objects and many other things. There are even upgrades for armor, hacking, and enemy tracking. My favorite is the Typhoon system which shoots out abunch of ball-bearings. I walked into the middle of a group of prostitutes in Detroit and KILLED THEM ALL. It was glorious. Using all the augmentations adds so much fun to the game. Even though the standard killing is absolutely fucking awesome, using the augmentations to give you advantages opens up new ways to track and follow your enemies to take them out completely silently. Absolute and pure fun. The detail in the game is great as well as I hacked and disabled all the alarms in a building and then alerted some enemies. They yelled and panicked as they couldn't activate the alarm! I then killed them all one by one, slowly and painfully. EXCELLENT.

Hacking in the game is also really unique as you capture and fortify nodes and attempt not to get detected by the system. Of course, this is upgraded through augmentations but just like the first game there is all sorts of data on computers and security terminals to add story, passwords and information about the game to really engross you into the world.

One cool thing that I liked is that they didn't make the technology in this game seem like it was fucking leaps and bounds over the original game. I.e. The shitty fucking Star Wars prequels which make the old world look more advanced than the new world. In this game, things are still very futuristic but you will notice a distinct lack of some of the technology in the original from LAMs, multiple ammo types, GEP guns, Nano-technology, and many other things. This was one aspect that I worried about but they absolutely fucking nailed it.

So they pretty much nailed the fucking gameplay on every aspect and made one of the funnest stealth based games ever. The missions are all large and filled with multiple paths of accomplishments with their own bonuses. The augmentations are awesome in every aspect and reminiscent of the first game, all tied together with a fucking fantastic story fill with the same conspiracy laden betrayal and mystery that was present in the first game.

9.5/10

"The game starts you off as a simple human until an attack happens leaving you crippled with your only way to survive being mechanical augmentations."

Am I the only one that thinks this sounds like Robocop?

The game is really great though and you can turn off highlighting after all, maybe they read your first article :P

Deus ex human revolution mini zippy review



Well I donít know what to say in scope it tries to be more like DX1 but in practice itís more like DX2.



The good, the timey wimy sealthy combaty stuff is gold and you donít even need to use the cover system, though 3-5 hits and your dead dose get a bit old it does not really detract from the overall experience unless you want to gun and run. Tho the AI is turned down for console users ala bioshock.


The conversation system flows nicely it feels like you are having a conversation more than press X read , I mean you tort and retort in a flow of dueling paragraphs and sentences sometimes it ends too soon but getting the silver tong award at the end means youíve had the best outcome you can get itís the closest I have seen to real conversational dueling . I have not gotten the conversation aug yet so I do not know how it works I assume it works with either a color code or percentage numbers on your choices.


INVENTORY MOTHER FRAKKER INVENTORY I still am in shock you have inventory and more so ammo is now part of inventory, theres no armor as far as I know, but it makes what you carry something you have to care about. I wish they would have let pick up ammo from other dropped weapons and carry more than one version of a weapon that way you can sell it or give it away when needed.
Levels are compact but spacious they lean more to DX2(size wise) than DX1 but over all its an improvement over DX2.


The mehy to bad


The weapon mod system bores me to tears to far too strict and by the logical limited book even more so than DX1 but you can at least stack some of them so itís annoying more than anything else(no AP rounds for my tricked out revolver but the puny 10MM pistol gets it only?? NERD SMASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)


The AI as I said before is toned down, it lacks awareness , sure the guards and enemies have the basic detection skills needed to make sure you cannot just crouch run through an area , but when a cop sees me entering a vent or lifting something and says nothing thatís cheap AI in my book
Stealth is a bit easy due to the AI issues but other than that Iíve had fun screwing with the AI, I wonder if the AI is less drooling on hard difficulty.


The save system in this game has to be a nightmare for console users, I am playing it on the PC so I have 3 save options save from menu(I do it at major check points of the game it saves it in a endless slot system, quick save I use all the damn time and check points I sometimes use)from what I understand you only get auto check point saves in the console versions.



The ending, I have heard nothing but bad things about the ending like they had to rush things so they went with an overview of how it ended rather than you going through with itÖÖÖ cheeeaaappppppppppp .



PS:Most DLC needs to be free for the PC >>



PSS:Still playing it but doubt it can get better than what it is now.

Just trying the game now. I generally like RPG's and the sci-fi theme. I aim to be the using stealth as my main tool to get by as I find it irresistible if implemented correctly, while also getting more xp if nobody sees me through the whole level. But on the first map, I'm sure nobody spotted me, I basically went through it from one crate to another with my weapon holstered, but still didn't get the GHOST titulus somehow or any xp whatsoever. Seems that I won't be getting nothing from the prologue. Oh well... we'll see if I get it later. Also I wonder if I still get to be the GHOST if I kill some guards using hacked turrets and robots.
Oh, and the RADAR icon in the Augumentations menu seems to be switched with the INFOLINK icon. Not such a big problem, but I can't believe that nobody spotted this while I did it on the first look.
And to think, that they finalized the game with this...
