My expectations might have been a tad bit too high due to the incredible reception of the original Deus Ex that I have never played, but Human Revolution, despite the very well written dialogue, and a few through-provoking twists in the story, proved to be a fairly underwhelming experience to me (maybe I’ve read too many sci-fi novels to be overly impressed by these concepts anymore).
|Interesting sci-fi setting||Bland environment design|
|Very well written, flowing dialogue||Plot is not really all that interesting|
|Problems have multiple solutions depending on how you role-play||Dull sneaking mechanics|
|A couple of interesting side-quests||Clunky shooting mechanics|
|Thought-provoking on the advancing technology, and human enhancement||Extremely annoying inventory|
|Crappy boss fights|
