Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Preview @ CVG

by Aries100, 2011-07-05 23:01:15

CVG has a two-part preview up for this game. Part 1 is here,  part 2 is here.   The preview covers the first 10 hours of the game. Spoilers abound, though not much new information is revealed.  From part 1:

Augmentations have allowed the blind to see, the legless to walk, and paralysed people to live active lives but sooner or later everybody rejects the implants. Neuropozine is the answer - invented by David Sarif's mentor Hugh Darrow, Nu-Poz is exclusively manufactured by Versalife and of course is sold at an astronomical price, making augmentations a rich man's treat. Megan's announcement would have meant an end for the Nu-Poz monopoly; her supposed death kept the status quo intact. Sarif is waiting , so we'll have to investigate those thefts later.

A quote from part 2:

But these are the guys who attacked Sarif Industries, killed Megan, and broke Jensen's back.

They're the reason Jensen is more machine than man and the reason he's short of a fair few dozen friends. The next half hour is a blur of explosions and shotgun fire. The mech meets its demise on the end of a rocket launcher, security cameras are blasted off walls and mercenaries are shotgunned off balconies.
