Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Gameplay Options Preview @ 1Up
1Up has a Deus Ex: HR preview that takes a leaf out of the Alpha Protocol playbook by describing the same segment played in three different ways. Combat, "communication skills" and dialogue are all demostrated as viable solutions to the same quest:
The demo we saw was actually shown to us three different times -- it's the same exact scenario, just played through with entirely different approaches. Here's the setup: about 90 minutes into the game, you're given the task of infiltrating the morgue at a police headquarters to retrieve a chip embedded in a dead terrorist's head. This terrorist is part of a group against transhumanism (people augmented with cybernetics, which is the product Sarif Industries, your in-game employer). But here's the catch: the terrorist himself has cybernetic implants. So he must be some sort of plant within the terrorist organization -- but a plant by who? The government? You're on a mission to find out, which is why it's imperative you get access to the morgue and get that chip.
