Rated 9 out of 10 by Tommy234 Not a Bad Game
So I just finished playing through Deus Ex Human Revolution and I have to admit. It was a pretty good. game. It had a great plot that kept me through the story up until the very end. After reading some of the other reviews that have been posted I found that there seemed to be a lot of people who disliked the graphics of the game. I believe that what people need to understand is that gameplay graphics are far different from that of the cinematic graphics that you see when your not playing but watching. Other complaints i found were that people said there wasn't a lot of free roaming... Are you kidding? This game provided the player multiple paths in order to reach their main objective you could roam pretty much anywhere in the entire game. This game provides players with the opportunity to experience a great game with great graphics and after experiencing how extensive and involving the plot was I give this game two thumbs up.

I'm only about 8 hours into the game, but even if it never gets better than this, it's an awesome game. You will die a lot, and fast, but it's a challenge. Some people have said that it favors stealth, but so far I've been able to kick in door--upgraded pistol blazing--and tear up some people (I think I got a lot of civilians in the cross fire though...). It all comes down to how you, as an individual, like to play a game, as well as how you're comfortable approaching a situation. I'm the "drop a grenade from the roof top and jump four stories down into a group of punks with a sub machine gun" kind of player--and it feels good...real good. And, the hacking mini game is actually fun, as well as challenging. Okay, so some of the lip sync is off, and some facial rendering of random homeless people aren't wonderful, but the graphics are good where they count, and the sounds/soundtrack is great as well. Say what you will... but it's worth playing, keeping, and playing again. If you find a used copy on the GameStop shelves, it sure as heck won't be mine.
Rated 6 out of 10 by stinger85 Decent game, but not as open as it could have been
I put this game into my xbox with full expectations of being pulled into an epic first person rpg style game where i could choose to play anyway i wanted. The first thing i noticed was that the graphics were not the amazing graphics I had been hoping for, and almost reminded me of Perfect Dark Zero. My first taste of the gameplay though left me a little less then ecstatic. The controls felt somewhat awkward and while you can choose to run and gun or go stealthy, the game really pushes the stealth elements. Ammo is scarce and enemies are extremely efficient at dispatching the player. I don't normally have a problem with stealth games, but I was hoping to truly be able to choose how I wanted to play the game, which I feel I was not fully able to do. I would recommend the game to be rented or bought pre owned, but not bought new, that's my biggest regret is that I bought it new.
Rated 8 out of 10 by BrianCzarCanada Good, but SHOULD have been better.
This is my first review I've ever posted on this site, so I may be a little long winded, so sorry in advance. My opinion of Deus EX: Human Revolution is that it was a well made game, but it has some slight setbacks that prevents it from being a perfect 10 game. Point A.: The graphics on this game look amazing on paper or on photo, but when you play it on your television you see alot of the graphics aren't as sharp as they should be...like the top of vent shafts and npc's facial images. However, the lighting effects are nearly spot on. Well done there...but that's Square Enix for you. Gameplay started out boring and very annoying. But as you progress in the game and you figure out how to do fun stuff like stabbing hobos and starting random fire fights with gangs or police, which to me is 2 tons of fun. The sound honestly is the best thing about this game. Very sharp...exp. on a 5.1 or higher D.S.S. Lastly, I recommend renting this first before buying, because it's not Fallout: New Vegas. It's nowhere it. It's more like Bond: Quantom of Solace with RPG elements. GOOD, BUT I HOPE THE NEXT DEUS EX GAME IS BETTER.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Ben2000 I LOVED THIS GAME!!!
Ok so this happened to be my first Deus Ex, and I have to say after playing it I am planning on getting the other two, this game had the be one of the best games I have played in a while both on the shooter scale and the RPG scale.
One of the things I liked most about the game is that it was actually pretty long, I did all but one of the side missions and it took me like 4 days of pretty heavy gaming to get through. I also loved the versitality of the game the fact that you could use many different tecneques to get to your objective was awesome.
Granted the graphics were a little dated for a game that is just coming out but that was about the only problem I could find with it, there were also no glitches that I ran into.
So in the end I really loved this game and I am hoping they are planning on making a sequel ((Bit of advice watch through the credits :) ))
Rated 6 out of 10 by ComradeElric I am befuttled.
I typically like these sort of games, but currently I am fairly disappointed with this game. That story is okay, if not completely black and white. The graphics are good, occasionally. The facial expressions are a joke, and characters use the same "body language" poses over and over again. The voice acting is somewhat believable, however I've found myself rolling my eyes because of the main protagonists corny lines, more than once. There is some fun to be had upgrading and using new guns/abilities, though I've found myself pressing on though easy gunfights, dull, forced dialog, trivial hacking sequences, and so fourth, just hoping fun is to be had around the corner. Things seem to boil down to "Do I shoot my way into the front door, or hack this side door, or crawl through some vent?" The game isn't directly bad, just unpolished, or unfinished, IMO.
Rated 5 out of 10 by datruth1 Deus Ex Human Revolution quality not quantity
Deus Ex Human Revolution is a game that looks like a game for a true gamer. The game is fun looks like it has a good story line and lots of second missions. In the game you are a man that bit on more trubul than you can chew. And not to save you and make you stronger an better......not you are a 6 billion dollar man.. Wala!! ... The truth of the matter is the game looks like you are cross between of Neo from the Matrix and the 6million dollar man. The game is all about stealth!! And you will die ALLOT till you can upgrade..
Truth..the graphics are OK the lip sink is all off! the button placement is strange... you will have to get use to them.. the characters moves around when you are talking to them like they are having muscle SPASMS.. For the company that made the game they should have spent some time fine tuning the graphics The company is to good to let this be released before it was polished .. FYI parts of things and people should not go into the objects and your person..
Conclusion.. The game is OK!! and it is fun.. but for $60.00 make sure you trade in for it. But I need to finish it!!! because I want to see more!!
Rated 8 out of 10 by Cygnus Pretty good/over-hyped
This game is awesome don't get me wrong, but it's pretty much just Mass Effect and Splinter Cell fused together. The game tries to generate a sense of choice and individuality in regards to how you develop your character and what approach you take to negotiate missions. Trying to know which augmentation upgrades are best can be difficult and can end up ruining a good portion of the game as well. And the combat or stealth choice approach is also HEAVILY weighed in favor of only stealth. If you load up on lots of weapons and ammo and combat augmentations you can still be easily taken down in combat anyway, so stealth really is forced upon you. The constant light on dark drab environment gets old as well. Even with all that, it is clear a great deal of effort was taken to create this game and it deserves a play.
Rated 10 out of 10 by TheWingedKid One of My Favorite Games
I had seen this title numerous times in the used section and had picked up to look at a bunch of times. I finally decided to get it when they were having a used games promotion, and I started to play it as soon as I got home. I wished I had picked it up sooner. Deus Ex: Human Revolution has the right blend of strategy and shooting. The plot is interesting and makes you wonder a little about where technology is going. I personally love Adam Jensen, as you get to make him your own character through augmentation upgrades and game decisions. He's a beautiful character in the sense of how awesome his cybernetic augmentations look graphically. This is the perfect game if you're looking for something where you make decisions that effect the outcome of the game without being overwhelmed with so many different choices. There are some interesting weapons (crossbow, lazer rifle) and the environments are interactive (you can throw a copy machine, to name something). I actually decided to purchase the Augmented Edition of this game after I finished playing through. Can't wait to play it again and work on being more stealthy (got into a lot of shooting in my first play through).
