Another key aspect of Deus Ex: Human Revolution is the conversation system. Players will engage with enemies, friends, colleagues, acquaintances and strangers, and every other calibre of human being, hoping to extract vital information or convince them to assist in your mission. The outcome of these conversations may not always be that which you hoped for, but similar to the likes of Heavy Rain and Mass Effect 2, reloading a previous save in an attempt to change the result is missing the point entirely. What seems like a failure at one point in the game may well be considered a success several hours later, as the game progresses in a different direction because of that one seemingly incidental action. Deus Ex: Human Revolution isn’t designed as a game you can win; it’s intended to be a game you experience.
