Deus Ex: Human Revolution - PC Impressions @ Ars Technica

Ars Technica has some short hands-on impressions of the PC version of DX:HR, unlike most articles. A sample:

In practice, the game looks great, and is a large step up from its console counterpart if you have the system supporting these DirectX 11 bells and whistles. With so much time spent taking in the details of the game world and with an emphasis on finding secrets and exploring every nook and cranny, the added clarity and sharpness that the high resolution and extensive anti-aliasing options bring to the game are welcome.

The controls are also impressive, with every menu and in-game option usable with the mouse. The hacking minigame benefits from the speed and precision that a mouse brings, and the ability to use your keyboard to type in codes and passwords is better than directing a cursor around the game's virtual keyboards. The controls are fully customizable, and just in case you prefer a gamepad, that's supported as well.
