Gametactics Reviews Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Deus Ex was a title that should have spawned a new class of games. This title, along with the likes of System Shock 2 forged a perfect meld between first person shooter (FPS) and role-playing game (RPG). Unfortunately, this type of game did not catch on until the recent success of Bioshock. At the time, Deus Ex was incredible. Years before it’s time and clearly worthy of another title. The spawn of Deus Ex’s sequel was basically equivalent to seeing the movie Jurassic Park and wanting more. The movie was amazing. It was clearly worthy of a follow up. Then The Lost World comes out. Metacritic puts the first one at 68% with the Lost World netting 59%. Not a significant drop but just think of how you rate those two movies. That’s the equivalence of how of lot of fans think about Deus Ex compared to Deus Ex 2. If you force yourself to be objective, it was a competent title, but it didn’t carry the spirit that made Deus Ex great. Now over 7 years later, a prequel arrives. It had one of the most epic trailers in recent memory. Can Deus Ex: Human Revolution deliver on its pedigree and promise or will it cave under the pressure? Find out when Gametactics reviewer Jeff Markiewicz checks out Deus Ex: Human Revolution for the Xbox 360. (Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Xbox 360) 9/10
