Dishonored vs. Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Dishonored and Deus Ex: Human Revolution have polar opposite stories but both offer different styles and gameplay elements centered on choice and consequence, and choosing how to tackle each objective in each adventure has its own strengths and weakness. Both offer a rich and engaging experience, the decision is whether you want something with more action or more freedom. (Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Dishonored, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Dishonored is more forgiving but I think the game's setting and story appeals to me more the Deus Ex's did.

That's a good way of putting it. I think of dishonored as a hybrid of Deus Ex and Bioshock. It's different enough to make it unique, but similar enough to be great.

Well said. Love all 3 of 'em.

I've beaten both and I would say Dishonored appeals to me more. I love the world and I felt like it has more sandbox gameplay than HR

Deus Ex over this any day for me.

Deus Ex for me.

I love the music, the central theme, and of course Denton or Jenson both are badass and defo the gameplay and setting.

Deus Ex.
Absolutely underated game. and it came free with graphics card.
Loved the overall aesthetic, and the entire original score.

Deus Ex underrated? Didn't it get pretty rave score and sold about 2 million copies?

That's far from underrated if you ask me.

I suppose I'm not talking about about critical consensus, but rather that so many people found it a bit underwhelming, not nearly as prophetic as the trailer entails it would be.

While the trailers for it are damned amazing, I enjoyed every second of the game, and it's one of few games where I truly felt depressed when it ended.
Far too many games out stay their welcome, this game could have gone on for 50 more hours and I would still have no complaints.

A difficult choice for sure. I absolutely love both games but I prefer the gameplay of Dishonored to Deus Ex's but Human Revolution's story is, in my opinion, better than Dishonored's.

Both are absolute gems and must buy for anyone who loves stealth games.

Couldn't agree more with everything you said. My love of stealth games started with Thief on the PC and Tenchu Stealth Assassins on the PS1. Dishonored and Deus Ex Human Revolution are both amazing games and carry the torch of stealth-action very well.

Agreed, I cannot wait for Thief 4, even though I have never played any Thief games but judging from the gameplay videos I've seen, they look pretty spectacular!

I love both. I think Dishonored is more comparable to Thief though, in setting and dialogue anyway. It shares similarities to Deus Ex in the way of upgrades and in the sort of game it is, but it's much more akin to the Thief series in every other department.

I liked Deus Ex HR a lot, but Dishonored earned its place as one of my favourite games ever.

The dark tale atmosphere, the freedom, the controls... With the exception of the ending everything in this game is perfect.

I agree with this person.

The ending, like so many games these days, was abrupt and pretty disappointing, but it was just such an interesting, unique ride.

Though, honestly DE:HR was just slightly less surprisingly great.

Making all your choices irrelevant once you get to the ending switch was really disappointing, it made playing a second play through unnecessary to see all the endings.

But that won't stop me from playing this one over again some time, it's one of those few games that's worth playing again after a few years.
