When Deus Ex: Human Revolution was announced, the world rejoiced (Mostly Nerds), as the Deus Ex series had been long forgotten, or so it seemed. Now it has returned and is better than ever.
Can't really call it shooter only(which is a good thing). There is a certain way Deus Ex is. Shooter/stealth/RPG. What's comparable is...Stalker and Mass effect. To a lesser extent with ME though since there are way less options and stuff than the other 2 and less RPG elements. I assume so anyway. From what i've heard it is like the first one. Oh anyway, if you're looking for a Shooter, don't look to this. If you're looking for one of those diamonds that comes along once every few years...get this.
Its multiplat so it wont have a biased point of view
I would agree. Its not a shooter. In fact, the game does it best to not be a shooter. Its a very stealthy futuristic Far Cry (with more options). Really good game. My only faults so far are: 1- Animation (not CG) is very choppy during cut scenes (most characters have bobble head syndrome) 2- No NG+ (whats up with that? I would have loved to run through the game as a Bad A on the first mission)
yeah i compare it mostly to the Mass Effect franchise even though you don't have a squad with you. i think it's better than ME because of the plethora of options. Nixxes, who did the PC version, failed though. i had to uninstall and re-download and am hoping this fixes my crashing issue. over 7hrs in dude...
I would compare it to the Mass Effect franchise except for the fact that Dues Ex 2 actually is better than it's predecessor, and also the shooting mechanics and hit detection is way better. Oh and there is actually blind fire! Don't get me wrong, Mass Effect 1 was a flawed masterpiece, but Dues Ex 2 does everything that ME2 didn't do for me. And that was actually get me wanting to play more. The stealth in the game is almost as good as Metal Gear, and its even better in some aspects. My only complaint is leveling up takes some time, and there is limitations on how many times you can melee with your character. But thats it! Such a shame Onlive isn't bundling the micro console with this game anymore, cause I would totally buy that version.
Da shredder, this game is deus ex 3. Deus Ex 2 was the worst game in the series. The new DX game lives up to the original and is way better than DX2. I love the new one, so far Ive been playing it for a while now. Im really happy with how good the 3rd person cover is. I was worried about them adding it but it turned out great and is cool to be able to play in FPS and 3PS.
exactly i cant either... but it is the best game of 2011 so far... and better then mass effect
+1. My first thought when seeing this, was "since when is this game a shooter?" Author is clueless.
GTA4 is the highest rated open world game...yet tons of people, including me think that Saints Row 2 was more entertaining. I'll reserve judgement on Deus Ex..when I actually PLAY it.
gta4 was extremely overrated. but by God the shooting mechanics in saints row 2 were horrible. i couldnt play anymore they were so bad.
Yeah, SR3 devs have said that they fixed the shooting mechanics though. SR2 wasn't perfect, but the missions and characters were fantastic IMO.
my god,you are not comparing apples to oranges man!?Its like comparing apples to a cucamber!!One is trird person sandbox shooter with drivng elements,the other is an action adventure Rpg shoot em up!One has a sahllow gameplay,but fun in many ways,the other is a more complex character developing game,advancing with the way you want,stealth,guns blazing,diplomacy..Failed comparison at best!!ANd rember,2007 when GtA4 was released,there were nt that many good single playing games to beat,only bioshock,which is closer to Deus Ex tahn gta..Being this high at the scoreboard,THESE days,after the numerous games that have been released and are very good,it is an achievment!And btw,Red dead was way better than Gta4 and Saints Row 2,and I hate cowboy theme games! I guess this time Logic did nt win...
Er..I'm not comparing GTA4 and Deux Ex, I'm providing an analogy using GTA4 to show how good reviews don't guarantee that everyone will enjoy a game. Geez, you should learn some reading comprehension.
I would love to play it. Should have by now but Game UK messed up again
Tomorrow cant come soon enough! :(
Played it for a few hours now I have to say the game is great and its challenges u to think ur every move
all of that and it didn't even need to be exclusive. This is why I laugh in the face of those that claim x360 has no games.
If they (the almighty Mods) can delete all of billandteds comments and ban him instantly. Why cant they do the same for other FAR more obvios trolls??
this is the first Dues Ex game i played but to me it feels like MGS. (From what i remember from ps1)
Yeah once you do your first mission with the augments...I def reminded me of MGS ...but dare I say better!! What im liking better is the enemies have a longer line of sight and will keep looking if they KNOW your in the room. No hiding in a BOX LMAO!! If you make a noise they will investigate. BUT if they actually SEE you...forget it...from my short play they will keep looking if you hide. ANd on hardest level...doesnt take much to DIE. But i am sure as you level up and add Augs you will be able to withstand more gunfire etc. I havent been excited about a game in awhile and this one has me intrigued!!!!!!!!
I'm not going to outright disagree with saying this is better than MGS but you have obviously never played MGS4. The AI was damn smart if you played on the higher difficulties. The box pretty much never works besides in MGS 1 and MGS 2. They see for quite the distance.
You are correct. I never play MGS4. Didnt have a PS3 when it was released. And never went back o get it once I got a PS3. (Ill have to eventually check it out) So to retract...basing my comparisons on older MGS games (not 4 )
This is good for games like Borderlands and all other RPS's out there. Like Neil Armstrong said "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."
Im hoping other DEVS realize that games need to be more sophisticated. Let me get rid of the on-sceen prompts that clutter the screen as an option. That small thing has made me like the game even more. I wish you could even get rid of the X that pops up to talk to ppl or open doors....less prompts the better!! I think you can get rid of the on screen prompt when u sneak up on a enemy...its either press or hold B...I dont need to see it after a few times. But how many games keep redundant info on screen that we DONT need?? A HELL of alot IMO! Loving the game so far. IMO its what the last splinter cell should have been.
I agree and disagree. I agree with you on that we don't need it after we get used to it. I disagree with you on the Splinter Cell thing. I actually loved Conviction but haven't played the others, which might make my argument invalid.
I have never played any of the past games. What got me interested was the tech meshed with humans. THat stuff intrigues me. And I thought the character model they chose looked bad ass. He just looks like a buffer more mature Neo (matrix). Im not far into the game, But I am liking the look and feel. I like they give you alot of different ways to tackle an objective. Also the ability to TURN OFF seeing items highlighted. IMO its annoying to go into a room and see all the things highlighted I can touch etc (See Alan Wake) THere is also a few other things they let you turn OFF. I wish there was more games that gave you that OPTION. IMO it adds something to the game when there are less prompts..such as go here...do this..arrows etc etc lol!! One thing I wish you could change but Im sure I will get used to it. Is having to push IN the right analog button for Down the Sights. I am tackling the game are the hardest setting and its brutal...you will DIE alot. I like that little things like jumping off a ledge or whatever in another room...the enemy will hear that and come looking. You have to really SNEAK around and be careful how u move cause they will hear sounds you make. Other games have done it but always felt cheap...see MGS...the limited line of sight of enemies that are standing like 15 feet away but yet cant see you! Really looking forward to seeing where the story goes...cause at the moment it has my interest. So many games just have BAD stories IMO that I dont really feel like continuing. Games like Mass Effect...very good stories and I think this game can go down that path!!!
To bad its not a shooter.
