Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Preview @ CVG

Omega points out this Deus Ex: HR preview at CVG, re-posted from Xbox World magazine.  It covers known material but serves as a good catch-up:

Find an informer and pump him for the location of a secret entrance? Yes, that certainly sounds promising. What about getting insanely tooled up and swanning in all-guns blazing? We like your style. Swim in via the sewers? Eurgh, frankly. Hack into the mainframe, get all those turret bots on your side while opening up all the doors? Now you're really talking. Human Revolution's scenarios are never quite as cut and-dried as that though, and mostly you'll need to combine all Adam's natural and bolted-on talents to make any headway in the game.

Admittedly, none of this sounds what you'd call cutting edge - but it's the way in which Eidos Montreal are going about their business that demands attention. There's a level of sheen here - from the seamless switching between first and third-person during gunplay or stealthy bits, to the impressive assortment of techy augmentations Jensen can utilise to, er... make his point.
