Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut review
by Bessi Þór Sigurðarson

Fatta hreinlega ekki appeal-ið almennilega. 

Eiginlega allt í leiknum er bara svona "nógu gott". Listi af hlutum í leiknum sem er nógu gott en ekkert sérstakt:
Level designið,
Boss battles,
Upgrade-in sem maður fær, 

Bara frá A til Ö, ekkert sem stekkur upp sem yfir meðallagi. Sagan er alveg þokkalega pólitísk eins og er viðeigandi við Deus Ex en hvergi nærri jafn grípandi eða áhugaverð en í númer 1. 

Þar að auki er fullt af skringilegum ákvörðunum sem bara draga úr reynslunni, t.d:
-Af hverju er kassi interact takkinn þegar hann er X í svona 90% leikja. 
-Af hverju er Hong Kong svona ótrúlega flókin að rata í?
- Af hverju er tekið öll upgrade-in frá þér um miðjan leik sem þú eyddir ca 10 tímum að afla. 
-af hverju kemur animation í hvert einasta fkn skipti sem þú lætur þig detta meira en 5 metra (með upgrade sem leyfir manni að detta eins langt og maður þarf)?
-af hverju kostar mann alltaf orku að gera melee??

Þetta eru bara hlutir sem upprunalegi leikurinn gerði betur löngu áður.Bara hreinlega skil ekki hvað við leikinn verðskuldar 8/10, 9/10 og jafnvel hærra frá öðrum. Það er hægt að velja hvernig maður spilar leikinn en engin leið er eitthvað sérstaklega grípandi. Það var reyndar góð tilbreyting að spila lélegan leik, kann bara meira að meta góða leiki í staðinn.

Deus Ex Human Revolution Director’s Cut (PC) - Finished on June 6, 2020.
Absolute masterpiece of an immersive Sim. You can spend hours upon hours exploring the first area already

Human Revolution is a blast from the recent past, and, at the risk of sounding like an old man, they don't make 'em like they used to.

The immersive sim genre doesn't get a lot of love, despite "play your way" becoming an increasingly popular mantra across all AAA games. Deus Ex takes the design philosophy of immersive sims and runs with it, creating a mostly believable immersive experience. Some enemy AI is questionable, and bossfights generally fucked up the pacing, but overall it stays on point with giving you options and an interesting world to soak in.

Gameplay: I can't comment on HR as a shooter, but as a stealth game, it's great. I never felt treated unfairly and constantly felt like I was being challenged by new scenarios. Plenty of options for lethal and nonlethal players. All augments felt useful and rewarding. Some side quests dragged a bit, but most were interesting enough.

Story and world building: unparalleled in today's gaming landscape. For 2011, it was an eerily accurate look into our future, with plenty of real world parallels. Every locale has it's own personality, and the big picture themes are relevant and thought provoking.

I'd recommend Human Revolution to fans of the Immersive Sim genre, stealth games, and cyberpunk media. Be warned, Deus Ex doesn't hold you hand and you will need to pay attention and play carefully.

After three Rounds of Play and almost 100 Hours of Play, I have now decided to write a Review on this Exceptional Title. + + Story with Conspiracies and Augmentation Theme offers interesting and quite realistic science fiction, as well as a certain Form of Social criticism, which encourages further Informed information after the game on both Points. + + Varied and unique Side tasks complement the Main Story or tell a small Story of their own, which always fits well into the Overall Picture. + + Thoughtful Level design, with many different Approaches for each Style of Play. Even in the third Round I was able to discover new Areas and Paths for myself. + + Superior Soundtrack, which is always adapted to the Situation and significantly supports the Atmosphere, as well as a good German Synchronization, which fits perfectly with the Characters. + + Moral Decisions where there is no clear right or wrong, but only the Grey Area in between. + + Rededuels where you have to assess NPCs to argue correctly and achieve the preferred Consequence. + Gameplay is well balanced between Action and Stealth, even if there are more lethal than numbing Weapons, all of which play differently. + Hacker Mini-game to turn off PCs, Switchboards and Security Systems is entertaining and so entertaining that I caught myself hacking the Switchboards or PCs despite the code I found. + The DLC "The Missing Link" is seamlessly inserted into the Story In the Directors Cut. Decisions hardly affect the End. -You don't get around killing the Boss opponents in the Main Game, with the DLC Showing the Boss fights to Be solved differently. Verdict: Despite the now 5-year-old graphic, Deus Ex Human Revolution looks well aged and still plays itself awesome. The Story offers some Twists and Themes that encourage you to think and inform beyond the Game. The moral Choices as well as the Speech Duels stand out particularly Positively, as they leave a lot of room for Manoeuvre and there is no clear right or wrong. The Game time, depending on the Way You play, is between 30-40 Hours if you meet the well-designed Side Missions, which I would recommend to everyone. Also, various Documents, emails and PDA offer detailed Background information, which are Very worth Reading and extend the Game Time even further. The Overall Picture is accompanied by the Golden Graphic Style and the towering Soundtrack. Thus, In my Opinion, Deus Ex Human Revolution is an "almost" perfect Game and a clear "Must play" for anyone who wants to experience a film-ready story in the Action-/Stealth genre.
This is an adventure for hours - you have dozens of awesome activities within the game, and they are so addictive! Bet you’ll complete this game more than two times just to finish all tasks and try every challenge. I like stealth and hacking moments so much, along with the story itself. And here are the best boss battles ever!
