OXCGN’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution Review: Eidos Lied, But All Is Forgiven

OXCGN:

"In the year 2000, conspiracies began to die down. Tensions were starting to ease after the Y2K computer crashing rumors subsided, and in a world pre-9/11 and post-Cold War, we had nothing to fear… or so it seemed.

"That is, of course, until Deus Ex released and with it, a reminder to gamers far and wide that conspiracies are probably still all around us, later confirmed by real, unfortunate events that still shape our world today.

"Then, along rolls 2003 and Deus Ex: Invisible War trots onto store shelves everywhere… needless to say, we’d much rather forget about it.

"Finally, we have arrived in August 2011, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution is here to augment your life and your very way of thinking.

"Once again, conspiracies abound, and the truth will change you; the question is, are you ready to experience it?" (Deus Ex: Human Revolution, PC) 9/10

Yes I noticed the whole: "we won't make the game only in some shades of colour" but then they do.

I think They probably tried it internally , amidst the delays .. and realized it didnt look good , while the blade runner yellowish shading suits the mood , and help masking every shortcomings of the "just ok" grpahical engine .

In the end it all wored out for the best .. better that , than say delrelict row in the usual and boring grey-brown tones from every other fps around .

I'm almost through my first playthrough and it is a very good game. I'm a diehard DX1 fan, and have been highly critical up till now so trust me. While I can't say its better then the original (not sure anything will ever be), it is much better then I expected and deserving an 8-9 score for sure.

Personally, I'm finding the game extremely 'intellectual' and intriguing. It's great to see a developer keeping true to their origins with regards to a games inner workings.

Too many games, within a franchise, especially one that has such a history, as well as a strong following.
