Review from Steam

If you get into this game, just remember that Square Enix aborted the third instalment of this reboot in favour of a Marvel Cinematic Universe cash in.
Because gamers famously adore all games that are based on movies.

Review from Steam

I'm so glad I bought this instead of Cyberpunk 2077. Game runs smoothly even using a potato PC. Still mad that the third installment was cancelled for a mediocre Avengers game.

🚪 Introduction
Had he heeded his father's warning, Icarus could've escaped the fate of drowning in his own demise. After all, it's human nature. Give it a pair of Seraph's wings, and it will be eager to fly beyond its limits, ignoring any regulations that decelerate its odyssey to the sun. Technological advancement without morals guiding its progress sets us on a route with obliteration as its inevitable end. Deus Ex: Human Revolution shares Janus's definition of duality in its mythology. A being with two heads gazing in opposite directions.
One head represents the technological revolution, while the other depicts social norms, where the body exhibits the society that contain both antithetical notions. Can anything but chaos come out of such a figure? Another interpretation can be that one head looks westward to the past while the other sees eastward to the future. The body connects two endpoints—alpha and omega—of the spectrum: an 18th-century conspiring organization with a 21th-century flourishing in human augmentations. Two expositions yet one outcome; the body is torn apart.
🎮 Single-player
💠 Making Enemies
Set 25 years before the original Deus Ex, you control Adam Jensen—former SWAT personnel—who works as chief of physical security for Sarif Industries, one of the leading companies in biotechnological innovations. A day before announcing a revolutionary discovery to the congress, it went under attack by a group of heavily augmented mercs whose mission was to terminate the group of scientists responsible for the big event. Adam's security measures failed to stop the massacre, and he's left for dead after being brutally injured while trying to save Megan Reed—his girlfriend and the head of the research team. Thanks to Sarif Industries, his life is saved by receiving the best augmentations money can ever buy. It's a thrilling sci-fi story of honoring love and unraveling conspiracy that never fails to maintain a high excitement level.
💠 Adam 2.0
Now, it's a whole new experience; Adam is far more superior than ever, with capabilities way beyond the perfect human. His implants fall under two categories: mental and physical. Each has its branches that are upgradable via Praxis Kits, mostly earned by the game's XP. Cerebral upgrades are related to hacking abilities, social skills, perception, and radar range. On the other hand, physical enhancement targets speed, strength, durability, aim stability, special abilities, etc.
💠 All Ways Lead to Rome
DXHR is primarily a stealth-focused cover-based FPS with integrated RPG elements in a semi-open world that packs a ton of fascinating details, side quests, and areas waiting for exploration. It offers a lot of merits, but the most valued selling point has to be gameplay flexibility. Mainly, there are two methods: stealth or direct encounter. Either approach, you can use lethal or non-lethal techniques; however, being a pacifist doesn't match well with open confrontations. Its brilliant level design offers a labyrinth of ways to complete a mission. You can access a specific area by persuading someone to let you in, infiltrating it through hide-and-seek, or using hidden passages. Also, you can prioritize your main and side missions as you see fit.
💠 The Smell of Hypocrisy
Of course, you can go for the good-old killing spree; however, it wouldn't be the wisest of decisions, as the game's shooting mechanics don't stand up well enough to be an action-focused FPS. Additionally, enemies are much harder to deal with due to scarce ammo, especially on higher difficulties. It feels like the game pushes you to play the spy, which I consider a strike against the "freedom of choice" point. Also, boss battles lack the privilege of choice, as a firefight-lethal style is the only way.
💠 Intellectual Action
Hacking plays a crucial role in the game. With it, you can access terminals for info, open locked doors, disable cameras, or turn bots against your enemies. The process of persuasion or procuring intel is a matter of analyzing your adversary's character and accordingly triggering the correct response to maintain the persuasion level; it's an elegant conversation mechanic supported by solid writing. The voice performances are good, but I find Adam's voice to be as if he smokes 500 cigarettes on a daily basis. Also, his death voice is pretty f*ckin hilarious; judge for yourselves.
💠 Director’s Cut Features
New game + mode where all unlocked augmentations will carry over
Integrating The Missing Link DLC into the storyline
Inclusion of 4 in-game items DLCs
Reworked boss battles allowing players to complete them stealthily
A "Making Of" video
Eidos Montreal's commentary
Free two energy cells regeneration on all but the hardest difficulty
🛠️ Technical
💠 Cities of Golden Lights
A conspicuous synthesis of the Italian renaissance with a bleak near-future aesthetic tinted by amber lighting; it's the golden atmosphere of DXHR. The touch of the roman culture is quite palpable in the characters' fashion and the ambient music. It's an exquisite piece of art, especially the artful soundtrack that combines shreds of ancient roman chanting with futuristic rhythms. It contributes to the relationship between the past and the future the game demonstrates in its lore. From a graphical quality direction, it's a 7/10 good, but the overall facial attributes are very dated.
💠 Director’s Cut Features
Removal of the yellow filter
A f*cking, laggy PC port
👨‍🔧 Fixes
💠 Performance Issues on Windows 10
1. Navigate to DXHRDC.exe -> Properties -> Compatibility tab:
Change the compatibility mode to Windows 7
Activate the "Disable fullscreen optimizations" checkmark
2. Open Nvidia's control panel -> Manage 3D settings -> Program settings -> Add -> Choose DXHRDC.exe
Enable Vsync and triple buffering after disabling them in the game's menu
Set the max frame rates to 58 frames
⚖️ Verdict
It fellow the closest to perfection but didn't withstand the vehement rays of the 太阳; after all, nothing is 100% perfect. With minor flaws, it's a masterpiece that deserves all the praise achieved. The director's cut delivers remarkable changes to the game, but its poor performance on PC is a cheapass insult by Nixxes Studio to the PC Master Race.

Review from Steam

fps goes from 100 to 0 very quick

Review from Steam

Recently this game got a lot new players and replay from people played Cyberpunk 2077. It’s because this game defined what’s a cyberpunk game many years ago.
Obviously, this old game doesn’t have an OpenWorld environment and plots are super limited. It also doesn’t have the modern-day type of graphics and technology compare to Cyberpunk 2077. Still Deus EX Human revolution played very smooth and fun across several hours of intense game play. You can be stealth or brutal, smart or just Bulldog through the entire game.
One of the very first English essay I was forced write in school was “Has Technology improve life or destroyed life”. This game offered philosophical 4 types of endings depend on your final choice on that matter. It’s also changing the wording a little if you decided to finish the game with a lot body bags or kept as many people alive as you could.
Difficulty is really quite simple. Even on highest difficulty you could always find solution to sneak pass enemy or behind enemy to perform instant kill takedowns. You do die rather quick on highest difficult so be patient to learn enemy moving patterns and learn the map to find alternation solutions. Save often.
4 Boss fights are reasonable difficult but all you need is be smart and find alternate solutions to solve them. Once you learn the game you will think those fights are too easy and you really don’t need those big fancy guns and its modification packs.
9/10 overall would be my rating and it’s satisfying to replay this game after so many years. We are quickly approaching augmentation technology and it maybe to only real solution for humanity to advance to true space ages. Will we encounter the good and bad of this technology like this game did?

I Never Asked for This...

Review from Steam

Very high quality FPS! Sound, graphics, story, voiceacting, music, environments and gameplay are all at such exceptional level, that the game still holds up nine years later!
I let a friend play this, because I am unable due to a physical handicap. I will therefore keep it very brief. This is a classic franchise, if you want to read a detailed review, there are plenty out there.
Things that I noticed:
- every Deus Ex has phenomenal music. This one included.
- the AI responds funny and to corpses of their allies. 'I know you're in there!' towards Jensen, however giving up after about thirty seconds. This is to serve no kills stealth runs, but it's a bit comical.
- I'm not sure what to think of Adam Jensen, the protagonist. He's a bit over the top cool, which results slightly into a douche.
- there is a part of the city that serves as a high tech slum, with closets of beds, a sort of cubicles, 2m³ homes. I have so many questions about that! On the side there looked to be a microwave? Is that where they cook? Or do eat on the street? And where do they do toilet stuff? And is the curtain sound proof? Because, you know, romance? So many questions!
85/100
