  29. ninjanutta

    Ive played it for around two or 3 hours and im finding it hard to like,its not rubbbish but its not worth those scores,i bet 80% of you agree when get to play it.There is nothing outstanding about the game,its a tarted version of splintercell.im sticking with it for the story but i have been dissapointed so far,it may get much better when i upgrade my augments a lot more i hope.

    I’m still incredibly nervous about this game.

    Human Revolution is tooting some hefty intellectual story-telling, but my universal experiences with video games has made my comfortably aware that most video games stories and a pile of dog-shit.

    It’s going to take a very crafty writer to pull off Human Revolution’s stories idea, and I can’t imagine there being many Isaac Asimovs and Philip K. Dicks on their writing staff.

    If the story isn’t up to snuff, it’s going to kill this game for me.

    Still, these scores are definitely encouraging. I can’t wait.

  39. Dr.Ghettoblaster

    Ok, ok, i have to ask…..and this is NOT to start any flame wars so please don’t go there. I own both PS3 and X360 and enjoy both, but like to experience the best possible version when it comes to technical performance, graphics, etc.

    Any talk on which version may have a slight edge if any? Was there a lead platform during development? Waiting for the official lens of truth “head2head”.

    Thx in advance

    #39 3 years ago
  40. Gekidami

    ^ No idea. All i know is that the devs practically only demoed the PS3 version. Doesnt really mean everything though.

    @40 If it means that much to you, get both. Make your mind up, then return or trade the *inferior* copy.

    Yeah it might cost you a bit of money, but what price piece of mind?

  43. Samuel

    To all the people who were claiming that the first review that came out, PC Gamer I think, was CLEARLY just biased because it was exclusive, and that the game would be crap like the second one – you get to eat your words now.

    #43 3 years ago
  44. Dr.Ghettoblaster

    FYI – 360 installed version definitely has slight advantage in load times.

  45. NeoSquall

    I reckon that during last february’s hands-on event in Milan the most stable version was the PS3 one, while the Xbox 360 one did crash to some journos in the place.

    Don’t know how it evolved after that, and I tend to don’t even mind, since I’m getting the game on PC. :D

    @48 you can always plug your PC to your 50″ plasma with a HDMI cable.

    Unless your PC doesn’t support HDMI :trollface:

  51. Blerk

    Well, that’s both a relief and a surprise! I started off thinking this looked great, then after a number of fairly lacklustre previews I got a bit worried about it. But for naught! It’s ace! Hurrah!

    I shall put it on ‘the list’.

  54. DSB

    Meticulous players could just be another word for achievement whores though. Still, between 20 and 30 is a great length for a game.

    I hate the fact that I have to wait three days to see for myself :P

    Mine is getting shipped tomorrow. I wanted a boxed copy of the Augmented Edition for PC. Sadly this means I likely won’t have it until Monday next week, at the earliest.

  57. bpcgos

    This is the PC game has to be!

    And by seeing this, we all will realize how much console (joining with mega corporate game publisher esp) has ruined our mindful hobbies into mindless shoot fest (regarding to this http://futurismic.com/2011/08/17/infamous-2-mindless-fun-and-the-basis-of-aesthetic-judgement/ )!

    After playing this, do you still want to get back to those mindless shooter everyone?? Instead, play those 1st deus ex,thief or STALKER if you want more of it!

    Now, waiting for the 1st Deus Ex remake (Halo got it after 10 years,so why this masterpiece not?)

    #57 3 years ago
  58. Ireland Michael

    @58 Please crawl back to your basement with your fanboy rubbish. Thanks.

    Consoles are no more responsible for this than dime-a-dozen cell phone games or Facebook games are.

    #58 3 years ago
  59. bpcgos

    @59
    Sorry,but I just want to show that actually console also capable to give us this kind of game (mindful game) like PC does! But,sadly thats not the case. In fact they’ve ruined many games IP (Crysis 2, next hitman maybe) into unnecessary mindless game that sometimes feels disconnected with its predecessor only to chase the other publisher success (you know who)!

    I’m pretty sure core console gamer (when I said “console” previously, it’s nothing to do with “console gamer” like you or every other gamer) also wants something as rich as DX: HR today!

  60. stretch215

    @60 nobody cares. Except maybe the resident idiot.

    #60 3 years ago
  61. Ireland Michael

    @60 That is not the fault of the consoles. That’s the fault of the developers.

    PC gaming is full of just as much mindless entertainment. This is not a console-exclusive problem.

    We’re at least both in agreement that consoles are capable of providing mindful entertainment, but to put the blame on consoles alone is ignoring mountains of proof that says otherwise. Just look at Facebook games.

    Games are being simplified even on the PC, and not just for consoles.

    #61 3 years ago
  62. bpcgos

    @ 62

    Yeah, that’s bother me too! I hope that this game will get the success it’s deserved, both in console and PC, so that publisher and developer wouldn’t mind to spend its money for more game like this!

    Regarding to FB, at least their game are not intended to played by core gamer like most of us here (so that we can avoid them)! Although, their succes also give bad influences towards publisher/developer decision by thinking that we also want that kind of game !

  63. Phoenixblight

    Get to play this game and not pay a single cent for it. No I am not talking about pirating, talking about the next option Gamefly. Oh yeah. No breaking the bank and I get to see if this game fits the Deus Ex “style” like the developers claim.

    Still can’t get excited for it.

    #66 3 years ago
  67. ultramega

    @66
    This seems like one of those games that a person should own though… I’m certain it’ll be as memorable as the first Deus Ex.

    @67
    Sarcasm, I hope!?!?!

    #67 3 years ago
  68. Phoenixblight

    @68

    Not for me it isn’t I don’t like the art style, VA and stiff animation and thats why I passed on it, putting my money towards Skyrim and Rage instead.

    Plus Gamefly allows me to play for however long I like, so if its as good as everyone claims I can still enjoy it without buying.

    #68 3 years ago
  69. ultramega

    @69
    What’s VA?

    But you’re honestly judging this on graphics? This isn’t the sort of game to play for the graphics – it’s really about the atmosphere and story. I suppose the stylistic art style isn’t for everyone either… but I think it works great.

    #69 3 years ago
  70. bpcgos

    For anyone who played it for PC and still curious how it will looks like check it here http://hardocp.com/article/2011/08/22/deus_ex_human_revolution_performance_preview

    From this article, we knew that this game brings a lot of change from technical point of view.

    First is shader based Anti Alias with FXAA and MLAA usage(magically, both is works fine at AMD and NVIDIA card) instead of performance hungry traditional AA like MSAA and SSAA.

    The other things is more advanced DX11 tesselation on every polygon with minimal performance hit also occur in this game and finally, we can actually see the differences between DX11 and DX9 looks like!

    Minimal performance hit means it wont ruin your gameplay like crysis 2 DX 11 patch already did!

    This game is trully become the milestone for the future of gaming,both technically and gameplay side!

    “… and (on console at least) the load times are horribly long.” (Eurogamer)

    Bummer! :(

    I remember DX2 (invisible Wars) having extremly long load times as well, and this made me stop playing the game half way through.

    #76 3 years ago
  77. Telepathic.Geometry

    The first game’s load times and file sizes were an abomination. In fact, apart from the fact that the first game was one of the best games ever made, it actually had a lot of glitches and problems with it.

    Still, it’s being shipped to me even as we speak. Yay!!! Should get it bang on Friday night. Shame I have a killer day’s work on Saturday followed by over time on Sunday morning too. x.x
