Deus Ex: Human Revolution Review | VideoGameWriters

VGW: You’d be forgiven for approaching the release of Deus Ex: Human Revolution with trepidation. Warren Spector’s original masterpiece was years ahead of its time, but the sequel sullied the series’ reverential status among PC gamers. Some Deus Ex purists barely acknowledge its existence. As with many high-profile games lately, Invisible War abandoned its PC roots and catered to a burgeoning console audience, losing its scope in the process. In an industry that typically treats PC gaming as an afterthought, this didn’t translate into optimism for Human Revolution. Factor in the absence of series creator Spector and growing development trends toward shorter RPGs that prefer hand-holding to freedom, and your reservations would be well-placed. Fortunately, Eidos Montreal has delivered a thrilling and compelling experience well worth the wait; one you’ll revisit multiple times. (Deus Ex: Human Revolution, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 5/5
