I could talk about this game for days. I mean it. There is so much to experience here, and so much to wrap your head around. If you’ve never played a Deus Ex game before, then I can’t imagine a better introduction into the series. If you have played Deus Ex before, then you will love most of what Human Revolution has to offer. The writing is just as gripping as ever, and the characters that flesh it out are suitably engaging. It does a remarkable job of supposing what the future could potentially look like, and does an even better job of encapsulating what it would feel like to be the center of a conspiracy. (And no I didn’t mean “at the center of a conspiracy”… just beat the game.) But most important of all Human Revolution wraps this narrative around the best shooter that has come out in a decade. Sorry Crysis 2, you’ve just been usurped. It should be illegal for you to not own this game.
Overall, Deus Ex: Human Revolution lives up to the high expectations that the original Deus Ex set. The deep storyline, the countless secret plots behind the scenes, the conspiracies, the moral and ethical questioning of what makes you human, and more make Human Revolution an addictive and fun game with lots of replay value.
Not only does DEHR contain all the open-ended, player-determined mechanics they've promised us, it all comes wrapped in an immersive game world and solid combat and cover mechanics. It has its quirks, but I'm believer in this team, and I hope that in a few years we're playing another Deus Ex that further refines all the great stuff that's happening here. I know there's been a lot of skepticism about this revival, but I for one have been made a believer.
There are plenty of open-ended games out there, but few really emphasize player choice like Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The result is the follow-up Deus Ex fans have been waiting for and one of the year's best.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution took more than four years to develop, but it’s no wonder - there’s plenty of exploration to be had in the cities built on top of each other (think: Futurama), challenging gameplay that requires thought-out strategy and 21 categories of game-defining augmentations. I love how augmentations are so well tied to Adam Jensen’s multi-layered, sci-fi narrative as well as the gameplay. Augmentation choices, branching paths and varying social gameplay encourage social gameplay, allowing you to put the perfect spin in the DE:HR tag line: “It’s not the end of the world game, but you can see it from here.” All of this slows the pace down - which may turn off your average Call of Duty jock - but it’s on purpose to make the game less like everything else out there and, most importantly, more like Deus Ex from 2000.
The result? While there are certain elements that may not please Deus Ex purists (the cover system comes to mind), Human Revolution is definitely a winning title with a whole lot of quality. It's definitely a game to look forward to if you have even the slightest interest in the genre, or even some good characters, and I'd say that it's certainly a worthy successor to the franchise. Some very minor flaws are present in controls, on the PC and consoles, but these can easily be overlooked by most. In short, it certainly looks like one of the best games this year, so pick it up if you get a chance.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution is as good as they come. Even if it doesn't sport the best graphics, its style greatly makes up for it, and the sound is magnificent. From a gameplay perspective, the freedom of choice is refreshing. The hope is that the provided tools work so well that you'll gladly try out everything during one playthrough. With the various avenues you can take and endings you can receive depending on your actions, you have a game with tons of replay value. The gameplay doesn't get old, and the flaws feel insignificant compared to everything that the game does right. While other high-profile games are coming out this year, it's safe to say that Eidos Montreal's rookie effort is a definite candidate for Game of the Year.
Game Over Online
In short, Human Revolution is a very good game and I can recommend it without hesitation, but it's not very good at its primary point of design. There is an unequivocally optimum path through the game, and while you can't purchase every upgrade there is, you can pretty easily get every one that's worth having. In a game that's ostensibly about choices, much fewer of them matter than you might think, and that's a bit disappointing. With that put aside, and I consider it to be the primary point for or against Human Revolution, this really is one of the better games released this year. About the only other issue I might have with it is that the load times on the 360 are pretty ridiculous, but when you're stuck talking about that, you know you've got a pretty solid product.
Eidos Montreal did a superb job with crafting a nearly perfect product. Though not quite as groundbreaking as the original, DXHR certainly pays solid respect and homage to the series, and is a very welcomed addition.
With a colossal weight on it’s shoulders, Deus Ex: Human Revolution not only delivers but does so repeatedly, like an OCD postman that’s fallen in love with you, it just keeps delivering, over and over and over again.

Attendu au tournant, Deus Ex ne déçoit pas. Il laisse une telle liberté au joueur et le place dans un univers tellement captivant, qu'on en oublie ses petits défauts. Chapeau, Eidos Montréal !
Deus Ex: Human Revolution doesn’t actually set out to reinvent the wheel. Hell, it doesn’t even seem that particularly interested in bettering the revolutionary Deus Ex from 2000. Instead, the game relies on a very deep and flexible choice and consequence system, which drives a level of moral obligation that fuels the game’s emotional narrative. While this tone is unfortunately unbalanced by the game’s forced instances, there’s simply too much choice and customization here to completely hinder the experience. The fantastic level of augmentation available for your character is complimented by the stunning level of design employed in the artificial limbs, an aesthetic quality shared throughout the game’s mesmerizing and memorable world. Deus Ex: Human Revolution is an emotional and troubling look into a very possible distant future.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a thoroughly enjoyable action-RPG, with varied mission design and an unparalleled freedom to tackle the objectives in your own way. The boss battles detract from the main flow of the game, but that doesn't stop it being one of the best games of this year.
I’ll admit I was among the naysayer that doubted Deus Ex could be restored to its former glory. Not so much because the first game had set the bar so high, but because it did so over a decade ago. Gamers' evolving tastes and the industry’s rapidly changing technology make it exceedingly difficult to stay true to something that was considered great ten years before, and it's almost impossible to do that while also appealing to those brought up on today‘s games. It’s a no-win situation, but Eidos Montreal has found victory. I’m sure those who still bow at the Deus Ex altar will find faults, but based on my experience with all three entries in the series, Human Revolution is its best, striking the sweet spot between retaining the franchise’s spirit and evolving its gameplay to contemporary standards. For those new to Deus Ex, unburdened by any memories or expectations, you’re in luck. Human Revolution is one of the most engaging interactive experiences you’ll enjoy this year.
Gran regreso el de la saga Deus Ex con Human Revolution, un videojuego muy completo en todos los sentidos. Una campaña larga y apasionante para la intrigante historia de nuestro protagonista, Adam Jensen, una aventura de ciencia ficción en la que podremos escoger cómo hacer las cosas de entre un generoso abanico de posibilidades. Buena acción, interesantes diálogos y un suave pero agradable apartado rolero para uno de los primeros juegos verdaderamente sobresalientes de esta recta final del 2011.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution has, in my opinion, delivered on all the hype and attention surrounding it. There are issues surrounding the small size of some of the city districts and the lack of ammo but don’t let that take away anything from this game. Eidos Montreal and Square Enix have delivered a game that is deep, very fulfilling and beautiful to look at and play. The four pillars of gameplay add a level of sophistication that is very rare to find in RPGs or FPS.
Deus Ex : Human Revolution propose une expérience de jeu bien plus proche de l'épisode fondateur que de Invisible War, ce qui est en soi une victoire inespérée. Doté d'une histoire intelligente, d'une ambiance formidablement immersive et d'une liberté d'action gratifiante, il s'impose comme le digne représentant d'un genre qui se fait trop rare. Ce troisième opus n'est certes pas dénué de défauts ; son IA tout juste moyenne et ses quelques concessions aux diktats des shooters actuels pourront au demeurant en agacer certains. Mais on finit par s'en accommoder tant le plaisir de jeu est immense. Adam Jensen a même suffisamment de classe pour faire avaler aux réfractaires les séquences à la 3ème personne. Et si cet appel du pied à un plus large public peut faciliter la mise en chantier d'une suite du même calibre, qu'il en soit ainsi !
While Deus Ex: Human Revolution can't be the revelation that Deus Ex was in 2000, it's an achievement nonetheless. It's a visionary, considered piece of work, and while my thoughts drift to the things that could have been and the compromises made due to the possibilities of video games in 2011, they're just as quick to consider playing through it again. Human Revolution is a smart, rewarding piece of transhumanist noir that does justice not just to Deus Ex, but to the fiction that inspired it.

Rich, atmospheric and open-ended, but let down by twitchy AI and out-of place boss fights. Deus Ex is the thinking man's FPS, but it could have been smarter
Entre son scénario bien ficelé, sa réalisation de bonne facture, et son gameplay offrant une liberté incroyable au joueur, Human Revolution ne peut que séduire les fans de la série. Certes la dernière production d'Eidos Montréal n'est pas exempte de défauts avec son intelligence artificielle parfois légère, ses quelques bugs dans la gestion des tirs, et ses chargements longuets entre chaque zone, mais ces petits problèmes ne sauraient vraiment nuire à une expérience de jeu par ailleurs si prenante. Que vous ayez aimé ou non Deus Ex premier du nom, voici un titre qui mérite toute votre attention.

Si on arrive à outrepasser quelques errements techniques, Deus Ex : Human Revolution est un jeu envoûtant. Délibérément atypique dans ses thématiques adultes et ses propositions de gameplay, il se montre digne de sa parenté. Pari réussi pour Eidos Montreal.
Donner une nouvelle suite à Deus Ex alors même que le second épisode, développé par le studio originel, n'a jamais réussi à convaincre les fans ? Le pari était risqué et l'entreprise réellement osée. Mais voilà, les petits gars d'Eidos Montréal ont fait du sacré bon boulot et ils méritent un bon coup de chapeau. Que l'on soit amateur d'action, d'infiltration ou de jeu de rôles, on trouvera forcément son bonheur grâce à la liberté laissée en permanence au joueur. La plupart des objectifs sont prédéfinis, mais les moyens de les atteindre n'appartiennent qu'à vous. Et il arrive même que les évènements changent en fonction de vos actions. Ajoutez à cela une ambiance cyberpunk rarement vue ailleurs, et vous obtiendrez tout simplement l'un des meilleurs jeux de l'année.
The longer you play, the more the story grabs you and the more you appreciate the customizability of the game. Hybrid games like this are uncommon. Even more uncommon are games with Human Revolution's power to eclipse its quirks with such enthralling atmosphere and exciting adaptability.
Offrir une suite d'un beau calibre à l'idole Deus Ex, après un Invisible War rapidement oublié : le défi était de taille pour Eidos Montréal, et il est relevé avec brio. En se calant sur les pas de l'original, pour nous proposer un mélange FPS/RPG pêchu et intelligent à la fois, le développeur a obtenu un cocktail diablement prenant, long et varié, sur fond d'univers cyberpunk particulièrement maîtrisé. Certains choix de design étranges, les boss en particulier, et quelques limitations, notamment techniques, ternissent certainement l'ensemble, mais pour peu qu'on accroche un tant soit peu à l'univers ou/et aux FPS, il serait franchement dommage de passer à côté de la renaissance d'une des séries mythiques du jeu vidéo.
We Got This Covered
I find it easy to recommend Deus Ex: Human Revolution. While it’s not a home run that revolutionizes the series and its well-known staples, Eidos Montreal have created a quality title with hours of interesting content. The game’s morally involved storyline will both intrigue and interest you with its complexity and adult themes. In my opinion, the complexity of its premise and the amazing social interaction system, happened to be the two standouts in this experience. One that will grip you and keep you interested throughout, though it starts off a bit slow. For its sixty dollar admittance fee, this is a game that most gamers will get a lot out of in terms of quality and content.
It has its issues, but it's the world, the setting, and the story that make Human Revolution great. These aspects of the game are so solid that I happily waded through the game's low points in search of the next hackable terminal or other flavor-filled bit of dialogue or text. That stuff is so strong that, unless you're an extreme stickler for the above-mentioned problems, you'll more than likely be able to look past the game's weak points as well.
Gamers looking for an extra additive of choice in their shooters will want to check out 'Deus Ex: Human Revolution.' Heavily based on stealth, customization and narrative, 'Human Revolution' will likely captivate you in its futuristic crime nior. While it might not live on like the original, Eidos Montreal has triumphantly revived the series.
