In Deus Ex: Human Revolution, you play Adam Jensen. The year is 2027. Powerful, and much debated, augmentation technology is poised to sweep the planet.
For a majority of the game, you'll be trying to figure out why your employer, Serif, is involved in a seedy global conspiracy involving the future of humanity. But you'll only do that after a series of unskippable cut scenes which completely lost these ADD addled gamers.
Once we made it to the actual game, we were immediately reminded of games like Metal Gear and Shadowrun. Those aren't necessarily bad things, but we expected the gameplay to look a little better.
The learning curve for the game was steep, but not so bad that we wanted to stop playing. Once we progressed a little further into the game, the AI did become a little too challenging, though.
The real bright spots in Deus Ex are highlighted by the seemingly endless amount of choices you have -- all of which dictate how you'll play the game. Will you be a stealthy hacker or a brutal mercenary? It's all up to you.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution hits on most cylinders, but failed to fully engage us during our gameplay. However, if you have a significant amount of time to dedicate to a game, Deus Ex may be the game for you.
