The world’s first review of Deus Ex: Human Revolution has dropped on PC Gamer subscribers’ doorsteps this morning – and it’s a big score...
Score was to be expected ;) It is a great franchise after all.
I am so glad I pre-ordered this :D
I actually wasn't all that interested. I knew it was a great franchise, I'd just never played one before. Now they've got my attention.
Someone else is reinstalling it. -End statement
I re-installed it 2 weeks ago. Just couldn't stand it anymore. Not trolling. Can't f*in wait for this.
For some reason everytime I say or hear Deus EX i think about taking a shit.
@nycredude It's pronounced day-ess
@ DigitalAnalog: You're my hero of the day. *reinstalls Deus Ex... NAAAAABBIT!*
Day one for me! Ive always liked the Deus Ex games. And i dont think it would of made a difference if it would of scored a bad rating. I cant wait!
damnit i wasnt going to get this game cause i cant afford all this shit comin out. next year when its cheaper, but it kills me to wait :(
EPIC as always
How was that comment off-topic? And I'm not a troll. I was making a point. Just because It's a great franchise doesn't mean the newest installment will also be just as great. But I can see where you N4G bots just saw CoD and started raging without a single thought to what I said...
any news on about how long is the single player plus how are side missions one thing i am worried about personally are kacking mini games i hope there is a way to avoid all that and just play guns blazing.(my 2nd play through will be all stealth no weapons)
Dragon Age 2 also got 94 from pc gamer. Enough said...
I have been saying for a long time that I believed this game would be my GOTY. There are definitely a couple other contenders and I won't know for sure until I play all of them, but I do believe that Deus Ex Human Revolution will be one of the standout games of the year. (BTW, it's actually pronounced "day-oos", not "day-ess". It's Latin, and comes from the expression 'Deus ex machina', which means 'god from the machine')
The IP is great and i'm definitely hoping for high scores across the board. But the IP being a great one doesn't automatically mean a sequel will be any good. Just look at the 'oh so missing the point' and super averageness of Deus Ex 2: Invisible War as an example of how not to do a sequel to a great first IP. Anyway im a huge fan of the SS2, BS, Thief & Deus Ex style hub sandbox games, so ive been crossing my fingers this one turns out to be something worthwhile to the genre. And so far a 95% is looking good. Though DA2 94% shows PCGamer can seriously over-inflate scores when they want to. So hopefully this is a true score and not one of those overinflated bullshit ones.
Before we all go ape-shit, let's remember that these guys also gave Dragon Age II 94%....
I understand. That score shouldnt have been made. But DAII wasnt a bad game. It certainly wasnt the worst game of the year. Plus the DLC was pretty good ;)
Well, they also gave Invisible War a 92. Let us be cautious in the face of fanatics. From what I've seen, it's really simplified and has a couple typical shooter sections. Like I said, I'm going to be REALLY cautious about getting optimistic about this one.
Was Dragon Age 2 so completely horrible like alot of gamers say it was? Not really tbh. Below average for Bioware yes but not Duke Nukem horrible and a decent game in its own right. Edit: Beaten to the punch by 2 seconds.
Oh no, I enjoyed my play-through. It just wasn't a 94%, more in the 75%-82% range (for me). Considering that is intended to be a numeric sequel to Dragon Age: Origins, it's quite disappointing. It should have been called Dragon Age: Champions or something to that effect.
Agree with you,bro.They gave DA2 94% and defended the noobish game with some backup articles and by bashing Witcher 2 for pretty small mistakes. But Deus ex probably deserves a good score.I played the leaked version and it was easily a 9/10 game for me.
mobijoker..... Your definitely buying the new Dues EX.. Right ?
@Rhythmattic obviously man....day 1 purchase.I wanna play it in full glory on pc.
PC Gamer also gave Duke Nukem Forever an 80. just sayin
They also gave BlackOps a 64. ... what are we trying to prove again? =x I'm pretty sure every review site has given scores that not everyone agrees with. One merely has to point to GTA4's score. On average though, PCG has been reliable. Though, they have been getting quite a few previews and hand-on of DeusEx HR (not to mention this early review), so perhaps there might be some greasing of the palm.
Luckily you can go and play 10 hours of this game for yourself. Based on that, this score is completely merited.
A sobering thought.
Than Q EIDOS. We fans Love you!! Its been a long time but now i can confirm that the wait was worth! Cheers :)
...is it really that difficult to type 'Thank you' instead of 'Than Q'?
He wrote it like that specifically to piss you off. =p
And if you are reallllly trying to save all that time by typing less letters.... "Thx" would be your best option.... Than Q.... that's just.... ya know?
Score of 94% on Dragon Age is a wrong one. The game is silly and the game is so much worse than The Witcher 2 But this game I have preordered many weeks ago. The price was 35$ on PC :D. A local shop in Norway had 35$ off everything games you are gonna preorder, just one game per order to recieve the cheap price.
Nice score. It looks like the delays this game had paid off so far.
like i said, this is a GOTY nominee. Step aside Uncharted. I played the review build via leak and i cant wait to buy this game. Thats saying a lot considering i played 30 minutes of the R3 and U3 betas and deleted them.
Maybe because you enjoy single player more..? Thus the betas wouldn't satisfy you..
Wow, I can see now that my highly positive hopes about this game are becoming justified. Considering I preordered it for $15, I'd say it's a God blessing! GOTY FTW!
One 94 review score doesn't warrant GOTY shouting...
Normally these early reviews are always mainstream you know what I mean and sugar coated. But still nevertheless day 1 son. Day 1.
FINALLY a worthy sequel to my favorite game ever and one of the best games in the history!
Deus Ex is the best game I have ever played. Been waiting for this for a long time and its nearly here. It will be a release day purchase for me.
I pre-ordered it a long time ago. I also played the leaked BETA, and I must say it's on par with the first one in terms of immersion, and MILES AHEAD of that blunder called Invisible War. Still, the original Deus Ex remains the best game I have ever played.
@ JCDenton Yeah right... I bet you have never even played the first game... I bet you couldn't even name the main character in it....
You damn troll! Of course I played the first game and I know that Master Chief is the protagonist... :P
Awesome score but I was sort of hoping that this would score badly so that I could reduce the list of games I'm getting this year. No such luck.
Gonna get the PC version
the game is worthy of this score. i played the leak, and everything in the game felt just right... the mood is suberb, a mix of ghost in the shell with blade runner... i am just waiting to be able to download my copy on steam now...
I really hope people support this game and it doesn't become one of those great games with low sales that goes away! Buy new!! :)
I'm still really excited for Human Revolution, it's just PC Gamer review scores really mean nothing to me. They very frequently overrate games that don't deserve to be 90+...
This is big. Now I am really excited.
does no one think its to orange?
Colour blind i see, it's gold my good chap, the game has Gold and Black colour scheme.
oh well :P
Damn...I was kind of hoping it wasn't good because not only is this one more game to add to the 'Buy-list' this year but this actually comes out sooner than the others....and does look unique enough to warrant a purchase. I'm kind of surprised to see a review so early.
Lol, i'm surprised by the number of ppl who want games to fail so they can save money.
I predict "Game Of The Year" for this title :)
maaaan, that makes me super happy. now i REALLY cant wait for this game!!!
Crap, was hoping it wouldn't be very good so I wouldn't have to buy it, seriously low on cash these days! Loved part 1 so this has now become a must-buy.
They had me at "genuinely worthy prequel."
This LOOKS SO BAD ASS. My friend told me bout it and I didn't know anything bout this game until i saw the game play and graphics. THIS GAME IS GOING TO BE DAMN GOOD
I'll wait till next year for this. It's just too much to take in right now. I really wanna get my hands on TES:Skyrim, U3 and R3 so this will just have to wait.
lol I don't know why anyone would disagree with that.... he is not saying the game looks crap or anything, just that although he wants it there are too many other games he wants... and the games he wants makes it a fair point! The game does look good though, I am looking forward to playing it!
Glad I'm getting the Augmented edition!
I'm sure this is a very good game but.......PC Gamer has lost all credibility with me after scoring DA2 a 94 and calling it "GAME OF THE DECADE" while nitpicking The Witcher 2, a FAR superior title for minor mistakes. After that, as far as I'm concerned, THEY ARE NOT TO BE TRUSTED!
I'm getting the digital version for the goty of the first one and other bonuses
This is lookin' good. PC version for sure.
