Score was to be expected ;) It is a great franchise after all.

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.

DigitalAnalog2330d ago

Someone else is reinstalling it.

-End statement

Coffin872330d ago

I re-installed it 2 weeks ago. Just couldn't stand it anymore.
Not trolling.
Can't f*in wait for this.

nycredude2330d ago

For some reason everytime I say or hear Deus EX i think about taking a shit.

TheIneffableBob2330d ago

It's pronounced day-ess

pixelsword2330d ago

@ 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!

damnyouretall2330d ago

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 :(

thrasherv32330d ago

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...

showtimefolks2329d ago

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)

HydroCopper2329d ago

Dragon Age 2 also got 94 from pc gamer. Enough said...

starchild2329d ago (Edited 2329d ago )

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%....

Kran2330d ago

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 ;)

SilentNegotiator2330d ago

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.

kingdavid2330d ago (Edited 2330d ago )

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.

LightofDarkness2330d ago

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.

mobijoker2330d ago

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.

Rhythmattic2330d ago


Your definitely buying the new Dues EX.. Right ?

mobijoker2329d ago

@Rhythmattic obviously 1 purchase.I wanna play it in full glory on pc.

CrzyFooL2330d ago (Edited 2330d ago )

PC Gamer also gave Duke Nukem Forever an 80.

just sayin

Ducky2330d ago (Edited 2330d ago )

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.

PrimordialSoupBase2330d ago (Edited 2330d ago )

Luckily you can go and play 10 hours of this game for yourself. Based on that, this score is completely merited.

We fans Love you!!

Its been a long time but now i can confirm that the wait was worth!
Cheers :)

REALgamer2330d ago it really that difficult to type 'Thank you' instead of 'Than Q'?

Ducky2330d ago

He wrote it like that specifically to piss you off.

DanSolo2330d ago

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?

Toman852330d ago

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.

SITH2330d ago

Nice score. It looks like the delays this game had paid off so far.
