Needs help but moments of enjoyment.
12 September 2011 | by ratcat0See all my reviews

As with all my past reviews where I make the mistake of reviewing way too early and end up back-tracking and apologizing I'm doing it again now. First off the 3D support is terrible. nVision glasses do not work unless you fully update the game until I learned that the Devs have spent all of their money on inbuilt 3D which is the first game I have played with the nVision glasses not using the normal nvision console and settings. Once you have updated your game in STEAM the 3D works but it is only mediocre at best which sort of describes the whole game IE: I die very quickly not because I can't aim and shoot but because problems with the game engine make me more or less a half-wit with a gun. Reloading freezes with my mouse button set to button 4 (reload) (Logitech G5 weighted-turbo-super-extreme-death-killer)so by the time you are ready to shoot you are dead,despite the fact that Half-life was my first game played years ago (meaning I'm a seasoned FPS player). The original Deus ex game was a pick up later on and it was only a distraction back then. My PC is High end so no problems with graphics therefore no problems with performance.. Where are the textures? Graphically it looks five or more years old. The AI are too good. Locking duck and iron sights is another drag... but there are elements to this game that provide a worthwhile experience. The Inventory system is old even by todays standards. The outdated Graphics give you a sense of Nostalgia but these are only in the Prologue. Once the game really starts they become more defined. The premise of the Game being that Humans are now responsible for their own evolution rather than God (Deus) although not exactly new,is well and truly expanded. Not such a waste of dollars but the 3D should work especially when the 3D option is in your face in Video settings. In the long run a nice distraction from real life. Enjoyable enough but I am taking points away purely for the reason that the average player soon becomes so confused as to how to go about the entire campaign that i wouldn't be surprised if the majority just quit in disgust. Conclusion. This game is not pretty so do not expect some nice graphics which is a bit of a disappointment considering how long we have been kept waiting.The AI is stupid to the point of not knowing where they are shooting or it is so good you are dead in an instant? Heres an example of how bad the AI are,- an anti-augmentation extremist was holding a female hostage so I shot him dead. The female Hostage dropped to the ground and started to massage the dead mans behind. It was meant to look like she was on the ground in a post stress situation, IE: slapping the ground in grief but she was giving the dead operative a nice bum massage. Moments like these make a person realise that the whole experience is only mediocre. You spend most of your time examining diaries and trying to hack computers. If there was any explanation as to how the hacking system works it would make more sense but it seems as though you just click on the blinking bits and hope for the best. There are cardboard boxes everywhere with highlighted yellow around them (moveable objects highlight) suggesting that they may contain ordinance or that they could be used to aid in your subterfuge, but all you can do is smash them to bits. If Square Enix - Batman Arkham Asylum to me rates about 7 out of 10 (lower because I"m not into third person) then Square Enix's Deus-Ex -Human Revolution would be 6 out of 10. Playable enough to make you keep playing for the rewards and to see what will happen next. There are so many ways to navigate your way through this game that it can be made a fascinating experience after all. Use all the available tweaks and upgrades to your "Augs" and just enjoy it as best you can. Then shelve it like I did with the original as "played" and forgotten. Then you can say at least you "clocked it". There are so many really good 3D titles out there I really cannot count this as one of them but playable... Just.
