One Year On - Deus Ex: Human Revolution

GR-UK: "People didn't really know us; we were playing with a cult classic and players naturally feared they'd be disappointed by our take on it." - Jean-François Dugas, Deus Ex: Human Revolution Executive Game Director.

A year after its release, we look back at Human Revolution, reevaluating our verdict and talking to its creators about its long road of development. (Deus Ex: Human Revolution, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I kinda would of thought there would of been more dlc for this awesome game, its typical, you get dlc for a game you dont want but a game you do want, you dont get

Admittedly, im not sure how they could of done it, but im sure they could of somehow

Much looking forward to more Deus Ex in the future, not this gen though, next gen launch title

I just finished this game Sunday.

It was slow to get my attention then it got good, then I ran into the boss fights and it stunk....then I figured out how you could make the boss fights cake and was able to move on and have fun again....then I saved someone that I let die at first (I reloaded after the thought occurred to me "hey can I save that person" and looked it up on the internet). Then I got to the end and was oddly more satisfied with it then I was with ME3 even though it had a similar structure.

I guess it was the lack of introducing a brand new character and changing the entire story at the end and probably and the little speech as each ending ran that gave some insight into what the character may have been thinking. And of course there really wasn't anyones fate hanging in the balance that I really cared about (I mean there are people I liked but I could figure out basically what happened to them based on my choices).

The choices were based on the rest of the story and were a cause for some contemplation, even after I made my choice. I guess I could debate what the developers thought would be the ultimate outcome of at least one of the choices but at least they all made sense in that particular games universe.

I absolutely loved this game. Just a few minor gripes such as the boss fights, endings, and no newgame+ mode. Otherwise stellar gameplay and story I hope to see more like it.

I played it, but the boss fights just started to annoy me to the point I have no interest in playing it. If ever there was a game ruined by unnecessary content, it's DEHR.

Stun gun is your friend.

Fully upgraded revolver with explosive rounds is also your friend.

There was only 3 of them. Probably like 1% of the game

I know, I struggled through two of them but when you've based your entire playthrough around stealth and then there's bosses that require full on assaults, it wears thin really quickly when you have to replay bosses over and over again because the game doesn't account for the player going all stealth.

Yeah, well it certainly was out of place for a Deus Ex game for sure. The original had boss fights but you could always run away from them or approach it in non-combat fashion.

I really loved this game. I had 1 small issue with it apart from the terrible boss fights, I would have liked it if Adam Jensen opened his glasses for cutscenes (they close very near the beginning and you never see them open again) I felt a little detached as you can never see his eyes. At least they could have had him open them up when talking to closer friends.

I love this game it needs atleast 2 play throughs then it all clicks into place it makes you think especially on your second playthrough you can change your play style and go down different paths and get different outcomes.Shame about the lack of dlc though :(

This game has been screaming in the back of my mind 'Replay Me!!' for a while now. And I think as soon as I finish playing AC: Revelations, I'll pop this bad boy back in.

Yes the boss fights sucked, but the rest was amazing. There were so many ways to handle each situation.

This game feels like work, I mean where the hell was the fun factor?! Nowhere. It's got a great atmosphere I'll give it that, graphics are nice, voice work is great, but the missions are too repetitive, enemy ai needed work. This game has a lot going for it, but at the end of the day if the game doesn't offer any fun then what's the point?
