ButtonCombo- Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Review; Why it isn't game of the year

ButtonCombo writes: Now that the third instalment of Deus Ex has been out a few weeks, ButtonCombo gets behind the hype to deliver our verdict on the adventures of Adam Jensen. Sort of.

Let’s start this proper by saying that Deus Ex: Human Revolution is not a bad game. Quite the opposite in fact, it offers a fun, enjoyable, and slick experience. Something else it isn’t, however, is a masterpiece. All the very good stuff it does is outweighed by some glaring issues, with one looming over all the others. Before I poke holes in it’s augmented body though, let’s cover the aspects that have seen it clocking up 80+ review scores elsewhere. (Deus Ex: Human Revolution, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 7/10

It deserves a higher score than 7/10 imo.

I agree. I'd give it 8/10, maybe more.

However, I also agree with the reviewers two big issues. The AI *is* pretty bad at times. How bad probably depends on how you play the game, but it does feel unpolished in that regard.

I also agree regarding the ending(s)...

*spoilers obviously*

Being presented with four big red buttons at the end, basically saying, "which ending would you like, 1, 2, 3 or 4?" - That was a massive let down. To be fair, it's very similar to the original game in that respect, but I think it would have been far more interesting to only give the player a couple of options based upon how various situations were handled throughout the course of the game (for example, if I had decided to kill Taggart at the press conference, I shouldn't be able to choose his spin ending). That way, how you chose to handle those earlier situations actually matter.

You can kill taggert at the conference?
That's news to me,i was able to talk into him and take him backstage for some information about Sondolvan*(or however his name is spelled)

I guess it's possible that you can't kill Taggart. I didn't actually try to kill him once I got back stage, so maybe there is something preventing you from doing so.

7/10 .... Nothing worth reading about, move on people.
Lets get serious here. A 7 is nearly an unplayable game. LOL
