Human Revolution also provides you various choices to accomplish a mission, but like with many big games, some parts are not always satisfying in their own ways.

Deus Ex : Human Revolution is a great game with a disturbing image of the future we face. The future in which human augmentations have changed the way people live.

For Adam Jensen, size does not matter.

The visual design did a great job, Deus Ex’s color palette frequently uses gold and black color which results in eye-catching visual contrast. Deus Ex takes pain to be believable and indulges you in its atmospheric world, which makes it technical flaws all the more prominent. The places you explore are good but not huge in size, which makes the loading times between them seem drastic. You’ll spend time in long conversations, looking at the outdated facial expressions and animations. Despite of the fact that the game looks dated, the brilliant artwork over comes the technology rendering it.

The shooting mechanics are good but not outstanding. Cover system works pretty well, but even with the armor upgrade, you still feel weak enough when fighting an enemy. Ammo is also rare to some extent, it won’t want you to make your every shot count. Unfortunately the bad AI frequently takes away that sense of danger. Enemies will continue to shoot you clip after clip even if you’re hiding behind a wall. Not only enemies, you can hack others computers in front of them, steal credit chips from a shopkeeper’s storeroom.

Ready for war

There is no need to shoot your way through every mission, there are some good reasons to take the nonlethal route. One of the reasons is that you’ll earn extra experience for leaving your enemies alive, another one is that it’s more satisfying to approach with stealth rather than shoot. The take downs are pretty awesome and accompanied my canned animation. The game goes into a 3rd person perspective when Adam takes down an enemy. These moments are often enjoyable but like other parts of Human Revolution, they can disrupt the atmosphere. Sometimes the enemy teleports to some other place or other characters in your field of view gets frozen. Most of the areas in the game are guarded by sentries, some of them are big and intimidating. You can throw an EMP grenade which results the eruption of sparks and metal. But it’s even more enjoyable to hack the security panel and turn them against your enemies, like always, you’ll need the right augmentation for that purpose.

It won’t hurt, believe me

Deus Ex fascinates you with its awe inspiring music background, visuals and a 20+ hours of sheer experience of its beautiful world, but it also frustrates you with poor boss fights, long loading times and weak AI. But that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t play this game. This game deserves at least two plays-through to completely explore its beautiful world.
