Deus Ex: Human Revolution is the third game and a prequel within the Deus Ex series that started over ten years ago. A game developed by Edios Montreal and published by Square Enix, this Action-RPG takes you into a pretty realistic future where by 2027 human augmentations are available to the entire world public. Of course with any scientific breakthrough comes masses of protests and that is a sub plot in this pretty to simple and great concept to understand in its storytelling. Anyway, the player takes the roll of Adam Jensen, a former Detroit police officer (yes Detroit is the main setting) now head-of-security for massive augmentation manufacturing, research and development corporation called Sarif Industries. Well play the game, I am only telling you whether it's good or not, which I have made the mistake of spoiling the stories before. For that I am sorry. For starters the game's story is as I said, really good blah blah blah. No really it is really good and easy to follow unlike Metal Gear, wooh. That brings up another point to follow in with the gameplay. Alright the game is very hard before and during the first boss battle. After this 'hump', as Adam Sessler called it, the game pretty much is awesome. Think of it as Metal Gear Solid (only in gameplay) meets Call of Duty/Battlefield (in this comparison those FPS's are the same damn game!). It blends both first and third person together like Activison's 007 Quantum of Solace, but more choice of gameplay style and more stealth. One bad thing the developers did not add was the ability to re-map or for that matter change the controls at all. I got used to it, but I wish I could change the controls to a more COD or BF feel because that is my natural feel, and about the same game feel that the hundreds of millions of people who play all FPS games. The game takes the RPG play down a bit, I didn't ever think this was an RPG until someone said it was. I mean either it is catered to the mix of FPS and RPG gamers alike or that was its original feel over ten years ago. For I COD player (me) and RPGers (many others) it felt great. Lastly, the graphics were top-of-the-line amazing and the art style worked, except for the Lady Gaga news anchor (just play it). The art seemed pretty familiar and also took on a future of its own too. It felt a little like Blade Runner tech noir and the freedom of movement in open spaces, modern and an orangery like Crysis. Overall, a great art mix, oh yeah and good acting too. Adam sounds a little like Snake, but maybe more sincere (watch the ending) If you like FPS games or any games that allow customization and your a sucker for a good story, check this out! It gets 5 eggs and a half-augmented one.

My next review will be of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. I had no idea they made to two previous games, but looks very cool. It looks like Crysis meets the T-1000 from Terminator 2, from the player's point of view at least. It comes out August 23rd for PC PS3 and Xbox 360.
