Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a surprisingly good game.
I'd been told it was a good game previously, but never had a chance to try it out. By the time I remembered about the game, it was a few years after release and the graphics looked somewhat dated and I was foolish enough to give the game a skip based on that.
Then a friend of mine offered me a spare copy of the game going free, so I thought 'Ack, why the heck not!' and installed with haste. I played it straight over the following three days, putting 25.8 hours into the game, completing it on the hardest difficulty (or at least, the hardest available. I think there might be an even harder level now available after completing the game).
Oh boy, it was good.
Problem was, I went through the entire game without killing anyone. Or so I thought. Then I remembered I shot someone in the tutorial. Whoops. Oh well, just an achievement.
The game was rather easy to play, especially if you play non-lethal ghost. I've not tried out going loud - I suspect it'd be much harder, considering the amount of damage they deal on harder difficulties. So one might want to take that into mind.
Gameplay wise the game is above average - it's not exactly a great shooter, but the stealth is decent enough. It could be improved and I hope in the new game they make the combat a little more intuitive and/or realistic. But there will always be more one can want.
Yet what makes it great is the world and the story, and how people react to your actions. It feels nice when people comment about your lack of lethal use throughout the game - and, without spoiling anything, saving certain characters also happens to have a significant impact on the game too.
Obviously in my review, however basic it may be, I'm biased to a degree because I didn't actually purchase the game - but having played it, I would've bought it (at sale price, because I'm stingy) had I know what the game was actually like to player.
P.S.S. Thanks Zero!
