After a bit of a break, I’ve got back to playing Deus Ex: Human Revolution. I’ve been meaning to play it for a long time, but due to a lot of unforeseen circumstances, such as being ill, I wasn’t able to. It’s probably been one of my most anticipated games of the year, and that says something with games like Skyrim, Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 coming out this year!
So after finally picking back up on it, I have to say that I’m totally hooked. Without giving away any spoilers, I got up to I’d say halfway through the game somewhere in Shanghai. Since then, I really haven’t been able to put it down! The plot moves along very nicely at a great pace – not bombarding you with too many events but not going slow enough to get you bored. It’s just right.
On top of that, the side quests have been great throughout this game. Any opportunity I get to explore around, speak to every possible person in the game world and just loot everything, I take it. The citizens of Detroit must really be pissed off at me by now! Also the employees of Tai Yong Medical may find some cash missing when they return to their offices! Certainly made me a rich man (you’ll see what I mean once you get up to that bit in the game if you haven’t already).
I haven’t quite finished it yet, but I can tell I’m in the final stint. My only worry is that the conclusion will be lacklustre, and I’m still contemplating whether the DLC is worth a purchase just for more Deus Ex fun. I guess I’ll have to wait and see.
