this title sugests that there is something wrong with Deus Ex... it is not...

Did you read the article, or are you basing that assumption on the title alone? O_o

"Without true hands-on time with the game (Dishonored), much is still yet to be seen. From the outset, however, Dishonored has shown us that it wants to be something special, that it wants to earn the place Human Revolution has not."


The title does suggest that there is something wrong with Deus Ex, and the quote I provided from the article also expresses the sentiment raised in the title.

So did you read the article?

Of course I read the article. And quoting a small block from an article can be as misleading as a title, and taken out of context to whomever may read the quoted block. Like so:

"Deus Ex: Human Revolution was a good, but flawed, game. It kept so much of what made the original Deus Ex a classic. "

Again, from the article, but stating DE:HR is a "good, but flawed, game"

Well, if it was flawed then that also adds to the notion that something was wrong with it!
Which was the only contention mr b_one had on offer.

AND btw there's no doubt that the title suggests that something went wrong with Deus Ex HR. Only thing that obscures that is the question mark. And reading the actually article confirms, that the author does indeed think something went wrong with Deus Ex. (even though it's still good and all that)

But I just came here to say that Human Revolution kicks ass. Awesome story, fantastic stealth and really awesome feel to the whole game. If Dishonored can deliver half of what Deus Ex HR did I'm running to the store with a pump action shotgun (I'm broke)

The only thing I didnt like about DE:HR was the boss battles, everything else was awesome

Im gonna buy Dishonored, wasnt planning on comparing the two

Yeah Deus Ex was a great game IMO.

Dishonored is sure to be good as well, but it doesn't make Deus ex any worse due to comparisons..

What the author wants to do is compare Deus Ex HR to the previous titles really...

The only thing wrong with DXHR were the boss fights, other than that it was a great game :)

I really enjoyed it. I will say that the color palate could have used some work though. Also, more to do in the "open" world.

Playing deus ex:hr now and loving it. Ive yet to finish it but have not had any problems, not even with the boss fights.

Deus Ex was Deus Ex done right. I like stealth games and I'm glad Deus Ex and Dishonored are doing the genre right.

people and their foolish nostalgia

Human revolution is better in every possible imaginable facet than the first deus ex

the new xcom enemy unknown is VASTLY supirior to the original

go back and play these games you think you love so much, you may find, as i have, that many are very disappointing

not all though, I still find Baldurs Gate 2 Shadow of Amn by bioware to be infinately better than every dragon age and mass effect game combined!

The only Flaw Deus Ex had was that it ended.
