It’s been eight years – eight long, tiring years for some – since we’ve seen the last true Deus Ex game, Invisible War on the original Xbox. Since that time, a lot of first-person shooters have changed the landscape of the genre, including Bioshock. Does that mean Eidos’ series, now in the hands of Square Enix, has bitten the dust? Hardly. This week marks the release of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, a game that dares to be even more revolutionary than the preceding effort. But can it live up to such strong standards? Surprisingly, yes – just as long as you’re willing to make the proper adjustments along the way. Taking place 25 years before the original Deus Ex (2027, to be exact), the game puts you in control of Adam Jensen, an agent with one of the leading augmentation agencies in the city, Sarif Industries.
