Deus Ex Human Revolution
This game blew me away... but
This game simply blew me away, but there are a few things in it that people will try to hold on to just to drag the game down. Sure, there are a few textures that could've been better (hair, skin, etc), and the facial motion characters used in the dialogues is not the best, but if gets the job done. If people learn to see through those minor details, they will have an awesome time playing this game. It's story is compelling with an incredible sci-fi setting. The not-so-far future presented in this game demontrates that the singularity effect that is imminent. What people don't realize is that these changes are aproaching us faster than previously imagined. The singularity is what author and inventor Ray Kurzweil describes as a period in the near future (between 2027 and 2049 (2049 being the singularity)) where the techonlogy will be so advanced, that unless you enhance yourself, you won't be able to keep up with it. Hense, augmentation of the human body and mind will become second-nature to some.
I have been a gamer since i was a kid and out of all the games that i have ever played. i only fully beat 3 games and those are StarCraft 2, BattleField BC 2 & This Game (Dues Ex) this game is great and will keep you wanting more till the end! Great Game is all i can say. A+ A+ A+
If only it were longer.....
I loved this game right from the start. steam made it difficult to install and launch, but it was worth it. the graphics are amazing, the characters relatable, and the environment spectacular. i do, however, wish it could have allowed for free roam and quests after completing the campaign. either way, great game, just a little short..... word for the wise, play it over and over to see everything...... and download the augmented content from steam. they dont make it that easy to find.
wish was able to play it after spending $50 on it
yea i have a quad core processor and 4GB ram but for some reason the stupid game is unplayable. in the main menu and the intro video works great on the game but when it's time to take control of the character , extreme lag , unplayable. I've changed settings on the game like mentoned by people online to fix the problem but no hope at all ABSOLUTELY DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS GAME , DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME ON PC AT ALL. GET A XBOX 360 OR PS3 VERSION
If you like Splinter Cell
You will LOVE this game. You can play any way you want. do all the missions with stealth, or go in guns blazing or some combination, its totally up to you. My first play through I went with the stealth mode and tried to not kill anyone. It was very challenging. The next play through I went with the tough guy approach and it too was a challenge. I like how you can choose how to customize your augments, but in the end you can get them all so it really just depends on what you want when you want it. The graphics are beautiful and the sounds is very realistic. People can hear you walk, run , jump, fall, open doors and they can see you when you hack computers. The AI is not the brightest but it gets the job done. I like how they did the cover aspect too, it works well for getting the missions done. I also liked how there was always another path to the goal and they are not obvious. Another good part of the game is that it lets you customize your weapons to your liking, if want to blast away mod the combat rifle, if you prefer stealth mode the tranquilizer gun. Over all it was a fun game and I have played through it twice and worth the price.
Meant for those who've played the original
Just incredible. Although no game will ever match the experience created by the GOTY title which were blessed with in 2000, this one is a close competitor. The gameplay once again supports almost any approach, the story is just as twisting and enveloping, and the humor and easter eggs are spot on. If you haven't played the original you might be very confused and upset. This is a completely different kind of game. Nothing like COD, Battlefield, Fallout, or anything else you might compare it to. Excellent game none the less.
I wish I could play it
Gamestop very correctly noted: Important Information:
IMPORTANT NOTICE: This game requires a 3rd party client to download, install and play.
When I bought the game, Steam was working for me, but as of a week ago, I cannot connect and Steam has utterly failed to do the slightest thing to help. That makes Deus Ex unplayable to me. I am sure it is a great game, but being dependent on a third party client like Steam, with a notoriously bad history of customer service, is simply unacceptable.
I think the best feature of the game is how customizable it is. You can be a master hacker, a stealth explorer, or just gun down everyone. I have had a blast playing so far. I also like how missions are time sensitive and sometimes the mission-giver gets impatient!
Excellent mix of FPS, SCI-FI, and RPG.
For anyone who has played Deus Ex 1 and Deus Ex 2, then you should understand the storyline behind Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The graphics are beautiful. An example would be the characters faces, they are rendered very, very, GOOD. One of the aspects that make this game enjoyable, is you always have multiple ways to solve any situation. This game in ways reminds me of Splinter Cell and a modern FPS mixed. What I also like is that there are references to original Deus Ex. Overall, if you like FPS, SCI-FI, and RPG, then this game is for you.
It mite be good but prolly not
This game looks like one of those games where u later say "it was a good try" but it was not a success. They start off good by going in somethin new and having a sci fi setting but it seems like most of the action is on earth. If its sci fi why not have fighting on other planets or at leaste in space on satellites? This looks a bit boring imo.
the guns are weird too. there trying to make futuristic guns but they look like modern guns which sucks because they wont be accurate like in Black Ops or in Modern Warafre 2.
Third as someone else say there is no multi player which is a BIG fail from the developers. A good FPS has multiplayer like MW2 but because this is only single player it will quickly beccome boring after u beat it. This means replay value is like 2 out of 10.
The graphics in this game look OK. They donr really look modern but there okay for this kind of game. I think there also making the inventory too complicated and it will end up cluttered and a mess!
But overall, I say u can buy this game but dont expect to be as good as it seems cuz they messed up on what it could ave been. If it was set in the future and had levels in space stations and had multiplayer it would be a contender for game of the year but now is just OK!
