Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
Now as we know this game is a sequel to plenty of previous DEUS EX games, but not only does Human revolution excel at being great but it adds an amazing diversity to RPG games that I have never seen before.
Story- The story of DEUS EX isn't just simple to follow, but it's hard hitting as well...I mean you could see the events of this game happening sooner that the events of games like Mass Effect. Needless to say the voice acting on the whole is genuinely superb. I have absolutly no issues with identifying with the characters and grasping their situations in the game.
Gameplay- Now say what you like but the gameplay in DEUS EX is perfection. There is a style of gameplay avaliable for just about anyone. Stealth, Shooting, Talking; all of these can be used in one way or another in-game and better still is the upgrades available to the player. These upgrades feel amazing! There is a wide variety of upgrades, but the clever thing about this is that these upgrades have PHENOMENAL effects on the extra ways you can complete a mission. For instance; when faced with a laser-grid, don't panic you have a load of options at your disposal: Take on the guards as you fight you way around or just walk through it for the same gun-hardy effect. Or you could always hack the controls for it. Or the easy option just use the invisibility abilities to get through without triggering alarms. If you like this style of open gameplay, I can tell you right off the bat that this is a must buy.
Graphics- Now, every game has it's weakpoint and unfortunatly DEUS EX's graphic are it's downside, but what's very intresting about Human Revolution's graphics is it's constant colour scheme: Black and gold. This is a bit weird but surprisingly effective. It gives the game a very strong Blade Runner vibe and gives a much more memorable experience overall. But character models look horrifying, cluncky and lip sync is often sketchy despite the glorious vocal work.
Overall verdict- 9/10
