Mad Mack's Deus Ex: Human Revolution Review

Uniquely entertaining and positively surreal - you'll never read another review of Deus Ex: HR quite like this. (Culture, Deus Ex, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, EA, Industry, PC, PS3, Square Enix, Xbox 360) 9/10

Was pondering whether or not I should get this...
I already stole a white and a grey Nexis 9MG modified combat chassis from my game store. Might as well get the game to go with them if it's decent.

my GOTY so far, but lets see how good Skyrim and Uncharted 3 are.

I love the game but it really doesn't feel like Deus Ex does it?

this has been my game of the year since i got done with deus ex 2... The game is gr8, but once you beat it, once or twice your gonna wanna let go of it, or wait for the DLC. Im gonna try my hardest to keep it, cause im a huge deus fan.

The review comes off as a tad contrived and slightly off-focus. At some points (particularly the opening paragraphs), it seems to want to be a comedy article on Cracked.com, full of irreverent Americanisms and satirical analysis. Then it becomes more like a game review during most of the middle sections. This is somewhat jarring as the sentiments don't seem to be consistent; the opening paragraphs seem to criticise the game heavily for it's story cliches and similarities to "Robocop" (which is dutifully satirised in-game, mind), while the actual "review" segments seem to laud the game in almost all of it's aspects.

Despite these contrivances and inconsistencies, I did find it to be entertaining and a welcome break from the usual review structure employed by just about every website, so keep it up. Practice makes perfect!

Thanks for the feedback. The column is still new, so I am working on getting the format and tone hammered down.

I would point out that I am a big fan of Cracked.com, but am also follow quite a lot of other comedy sites - The Daily Mash, Zero Punctuation, hyperboleandahalf etc. I am trying to develop a style of my own, but it is going to certainly derive a lot of elements from other, better comedians.

This is my early vote for GOTY. Great game.
