Default Deus Ex HR: Director's Cut - New Impression

July 19th, 2014, 15:36
RPGamer played the new Deus Ex HR: Director's Cut, and decided to share their impression of the game in a new article. As usual here is a short sample.

The highlight of this 'cut' of the game for a lot of critics was the redesigned boss fights. In the original, squaring off the game's cyborg mercenary antagonists was a clunky, inorganic process resolvable only with heavy-duty firearms. This version has intoduced an equally clunky and inorganic fix whereby players can sneak into new rooms and activate security measures to take out the enemies for them. Anything would be better than the original, but it and will never compare with the range that the original gave for taking out its evil cyborgs.

Something that does make this game feel like a proper director's cut over a GOTY edition is the inclusion of audio commentary. Designers, writers, artists and animators share their thoughts and anecdotes about production and design of the game as optional voice messages that pop up in certain contexts as well as over the cut scenes. It is rare to get this kind of insight into the process of making game that I wish more developers would find space for.

This version also features a new game plus mode unlocked after a completed playthrough and modifications to the higher difficulty levels. These are fine additions if a replay tickles the gamers fancy, but none come across as massive game changers.

If you haven't had a chance to tackle this episode in the franchise (or are looking for an excuse to replay it), the Directors Cut is a better option than the initial release, if only for the new boss fights, but don't make the Wii U version your first choice for purchasing it when it is also available on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Eh?
It should be mod it till it breaks PC or you can't change anything in it consoles. Not console vs another console.

In any case, if someone still didn't buy DX:HR, any edition, what are you waiting for?
Oh, you're currently playing D:OS… So? Buy now, install after you're done with D:OS.
