Deus Ex: Human Revolution Review - VideoGamer.com

VideoGamer.com's Neon Kelly writes: "I'm not sure if there will ever be another game to carry the same impact and long-lasting legacy as the original Deus Ex; in terms of my own tastes, I'd be amazed if there were. That said, I think that Human Revolution is as worthy a successor as any fan could hope for. The loading times (on Xbox 360, the version tested) are longer than I'd like, but this is small price to pay for the resulting experience. It's a hugely ambitious game, and naturally the odd element does fall short - your first mission is littered with cause-and-effect variables, but as the game progresses there seem to be fewer moments where your actions have major consequences. Still, the rest of the experience is so slick - so thought-provoking, dynamic, and endlessly enjoyable - that you'll be far too preoccupied to notice.

Perhaps the strongest compliment I can pay Eidos Montreal is this: with its grand design, dynamic play and sheer wealth of ideas - not to mention its old-fashioned pre-occupation with air vents - Deus Ex: Human Revolution is reminiscent of the best efforts from the golden era of PC gaming at the end of the 90s. It's a modern release imbued with the finer qualities of an age gone by." (Deus Ex: Human Revolution, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 9/10
