Deus Ex HR: Director's Cut - Review Roundup #3

by Couchpotato, 2013-10-28 04:00:59

I have two more reviews for the Directors Cut version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

Hardcore Gamer - 4/5

Overall, the updates and changes here are impressive, despite the fact that AI was not properly tweaked, nor facial animations substantially improved. I did, however, appreciate the overhauling of boss showdowns, the second screen offerings, and the overall “squeaky clean” feeling of a game freshly ported to a new console. It’s not perfect, but it’s as close as it’s going to get for this Deus Ex, and that’s impressive in its own way.

Inside Gaming Daily - 9.5/10

All of the additions in the Director’s Cut are nice but miss their potential in one way or another. As such, it’s hard to pin down whether or not it’s a good fit for you. The director’s commentary is completely worth it, especially if you’re a big fan of the original, but you can get that on other platforms for a cheaper price. At the end of the day, Deus Ex: Human Revolution is an amazing game that Director’s Cut only makes better. You should absolutely play it, but weigh your available platforms first.
