A new wind, Deus Ex: HR review

Today I remembered I had a blog and finally got the energy to start writing on it again, I'm really sad this just turned out to be yet another proof at I'm a lazy procrastinating bum, I just can't seem to get a steady hobby to do, because just in a few weeks I get tired and it feels more like an obligation, I'm such a failure when it comes to this type of stuff, same happened trying to learn the guitar, piano, harmonica, trying to learn how to do 3d models, how to get into the whole visual effects thing. I get a lot of energy to do it start very enthusiastic and lose interest in a couple of days/weeks/months, maybe is my way of trying everything to find what I love, but I really hate myself for it.

Anyway I don't want to lie to myself saying this time will be different and this time I will get on schedule and start blogging, but at least every now and then I'm gonna get this feeling that I should write again, if that's good enough, at least I made it to 100 before I lost it completely, thanks.

Well let's get right to it, Deus Ex: Human Revolution:
The recent sequel of Deus Ex a game that still is incredibly awesome, maybe the graphics didn't age too well, but that would be a really really bad excuse to not play such a great game that was decades ahead of it's time.

Of course there is Invisible wars, but we don't like that, we really don't..... seriously don't even mention the name.

So does Human Revolution live up to the great Deus Ex name?
Fuck yes.

This game did everything right to not be an exact rehash of the original but stayed close enough to not be considered another great franchise ruined, one of the best things about Deus Ex is how you can enter any mission and complete it any way you want, either go in there as a psycho and kill everyone, or go super snake mode and get the mission done without ever getting seen, this and the fact that the story is so flexible depending in your actions makes Deus Ex what it is, Human Revolution did this right and adapted well to modern games, some argue cover system and simplified choices ruined the game, in my opinion cover system was a great way to improve your stealth technique and prevent it of being frustrating and the simple choices could be better but certainly don't ruin the game.

Overall you just get a feeling you don't get from many games, it's incredibly fun and you will definitely will want to play it more than once.

This without a doubt is my pick for GOTY 2011.


  1. The customization of the skillsets are what sold it for me... hope more games start adding RPG elements like that.

  2. I played this game earlier this year. I loved how you could play so many different styles.

  3. I'm still sticking with Portal 2 for my 2011 GOTY.

  4. Deus Ex was a brutal game, and I remember playing the first one on PC when I was really young, but Battlefield 3 would be my GOTY, and possibly my GOTD(ecade).
