Default Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Preview @ Play.tm

August 14th, 2010, 02:27
Play.tm takes a look at Deus Ex: Human Revolution based on some actual playtime.
Putting his marketing hat on, Seb explains that the publishers put the game forward to retailers as "the world of Blade Runner as the action of the Matrix", but he doesn't need to tell me that there's far more to the game than that. Human Revolutions clearly has the potential to live up to the legacy of its predecessor, and it has a shine, polish and atmosphere that make it exciting just to watch. But Human Revolution needs to be challenging and have substance in the play as well as the style, and it's far too early to start proclaiming this as the one to watch for 2011.
But when you consider that I haven't even gone into the renaissance aspects of the style, the inner workings of the story, the depth of the RPG mechanics, and an entire side of the gameplay not shown today by Seb, namely the hacking, then there are more than enough reasons to be positive about Human Revolutions. Then again, expectations are already astronomical following the E3 trailer. If Eidos Montreal can live up to them when the game releases next year, it will truly be something special.
Thanks Omega.

From what I see this stinker should be cancelled.

I don't even want to watch the trailer more than half way.

I think it's one of the most promising AAA titles in years, actually.

I second that notion. I rarely get excited of AAA titles these days, but DX:HR just feels really promising.

I found this to be fascinating…


Interestingly, conversations will play through differently each time, so you'll have to listen closely to what's said - no autopilot for repeaters.

Finally, a game where conversations will actually change during different playthroughs. I"m curious exactly how "different" they will be though…

Interestingly, I closed the trailer half way through. It completely failed to capture my interest.

The trailer wasn't very interesting, but when are they ever?

I'm going with the general "respectful" vibe I'm getting from the developers. It seems they understand Deus Ex - and they're honest about the compromises they're making for the money.

They don't seem to have to delude themselves into claiming it's better for the game, but simply to make it happen. Very much unlike Bioware developers.
