Summary

You play Adam Jensen, a security specialist, handpicked to oversee the defense of one of America’s most experimental biotechnology firms. But when a black ops team uses a plan you designed to break in and kill the scientists you were hired to protect, everything you thought you knew about your job changes. At a time when scientific advancements are routinely turning athletes, soldiers and spies into super-enhanced beings, someone is working very hard to ensure mankind’s evolution follows a particular path, and you need to discover why - the decisions you take and the choices you make, will be the only things that can change it.

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with Deus Ex: Human Revolution for the Xbox 360. What makes this game so good is its ability to mix things up and not follow any one particular genre template. The RPG, Stealth, and Shooter sequences all work together and the series has successfully managed to capture some of the magic from the original game.

The problematic gunplay AI and annoying stealth takedown mechanics keep the game from greatness, but if played a certain way, Human Revolution captures the spirit of its predecessors and can be a blast. Even if it’s not a masterpiece, this entry lays the groundwork for a promising future for the series.

The world Deus Ex: Human Revolution portrays is wonderfully realized and fleshed out past the main storyline in sidequests and optional avenues such as e-books. It's a brilliantly imperfect vision of the future that is frightening and engrossing all at once, which makes it an apt thing to compare to the game itself. Like the world it portays, Deus Ex: Human Revolution has imperfections bought about by some very deliberate and questionable design decisions, but the overall package of what it offers is engrossing and well worth exploring anyway.
