Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a fantastic game and one that deserves recognition.

Square Enix has announced that their engrossing sci-fi action/RPG has shipped two million units in North America, Europe and PAL territories; the game only launched a couple weeks ago, too.

The first title to be developed and released by Eidos Montreal is scheduled to launch in Japan next month, and it has already garnered plenty of critical acclaim and fan appreciation. It holds a Metacritic score of 89% for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC versions (as of September 8) and "offers players multiple and vastly different ways to play." In the year 2027, humans have made the mistake of trying to create better humans and longer life; cheating nature, so-to-speak. And in the world of Deus Ex , there are always consequences for such actions…there just always are.

The first piece of DLC, The Missing Link, will be available in October and Adam Jensen fans are sure to snag it. Extending this experience in any way is an appealing thought, isn't it?

SPOILERS!!!

By the way, if you've played the game, did you happen to save Malik…? Did you know you could save Malik?

this is great news. it shows that gamers appreciate a game that has some depth and forces you to think. it also demonstrates a game does not have to be all about twitch and burn gameplay to suceed.

im playing it and enjoying it but i find the story to be bland and the character leaves something to be desired. i have no attachment to the character at all. his voice is super annoying also. i didnt buy it since i get free rentals at blockbuster and after i finish playing through it once i dont think i will.

i am glad i am playing this game as it is fun and does a lot of things right. anyone else go in the girls bathroom at the start of the game and hear the 2 ladies talking? pritcherd or whatever his name is makes a funny comment about being augmented but not turned into a girl.

i havent made it far enough for something to happen to malik yet.

@frylock

the story gets better as you progress. i totally agree on the main character's voice. it feels kind of forced and has some hints of sam gideon(vanquish) in it.

I enjoyed the game for the most part but got bored with it after a while. Can't quite put my finger on what it was lacking but I cleared it any way and got my moneys worth. No intention of picking up the dlc.

Oh how I love games like these.
I read every single email and ebook, talk to everyone I see, pick up hints in what they say and investigate them further (even non named civilians can sometimes tell you things worth checking out), explore every nook an cranny searching for hidden passages, pondering on strategies, buying and selling and spending skillpoints and having a total blast along the way.
Not to mention the wonderful, wonderful sensation of not knowing exactly where to go or what to do next!

It's lovely to see the recognition this game gets. It's just *so* deserved. Hopefully it sends a strong signal to the rest of the business: There's good money to be found in more than fancy pancy mp shooters.

I couldn't agree more Beam, exactly how I am playing it too. There's been hardly any experiences like in this "modern" climate to actually game like this. To really feel fulfilled and go in deep as much as you want.

Yeah, i honestly had no hope for it deep down as i thought the original idea and gameplay was too deep for a generation based on KILL. So i thought it would be butchered and consequently dumbed down.

I was wonderfully surprised.

I had very little hope too Lotus, and that only makes the experience so much better!
The hype machine is dangerous that way – too hyped and a game is unable to satisfy expectations no matter how good it is.

I expected as much since this is a fantastic game. Deep is a good way of describing it. So glad I bought it D1P! Cannot wait to hear about the Deus Ex 4!

I want a HD remastered collection of all 3 prior Deus Ex games(YES,I said 3),

The Conspiracy, Invisible Wars, and Project Snowblind.
(which was actually supposed to be D.E.#3, till they decided put multi=player in it, & then made it as it's own stand-alone game

Check Project Snowblind out here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Snowblind

ReBen's Spoiler:

Just like saving your brother Paul from the first one. Deus Ex appears linear, but actually throughout your entire journey even though you are encouraged to follow a route, the game subtly lets you decide – approaching alternative scenarios which you wouldn't know even existed unless you were quite adamant. And it isn't a game like KOTOR where there's a text to choose from making you realise there's consequences. Nope, it's a game where differences are made my walking the walk instead of talking the talk.

========================================

And I'm actually playing this game for the first time this year. I should of really taken my friend's advice when he told me Dues Ex was a really good game, because to me it's one of the best games ever made.

I'll play Human Revolution after the Invisible War. Good news on the sales.

Please do not play invisible war, you will be dissapointed. If you played the first game then it is enough to start playing human revolution.

I am aware of the faults with Invisible war. However I must play it for the storyline alone. Music sounds beautiful too.

Spoiler response:

No!!! I tried and she died a couple different ways. Balls. Oh well, I kinda got bored with the game anyway.

I indeed saved her. I was sure you could, it didn't seem to be a set time that it was exploding and that the heli was actually receiving damage and with a bit of strategizing she got out. I was so satisfied when the trophy came up and I read the description. A rarity for me as I don't usually care for trophies.

I personally think it went well with the plot for her to die.

Brilliant game.

9/10 from me.

Not as good as the original nor did it feature as many memorable moments, but it was a damn good effort with a great complex plot playing on real world conspiracies and issues.
A complete welcome addition to the Deus Ex franchise…an almost impossible task.

Lol I didn't know till after I finished my first play through. The second time though I upgraded my sniper rifle heavily and stocked some EMP grenades and got the job done. I felt bad when she died the first time. So much better when she lives.

Well I love the game to pieces beaten it twice, the second on the harder difficulty level. Bosses were actually easier the second time around since I knew how tackle them. No Malik died, both times, however it is one of the few times pritchard actually shows some compassion.

that wasnt exactly hard…..
im surprised and happy to see this game doing so well!
especially since it use to be a PC exclusive series and never has really been mainstream.
its not like crysis everyone with a PC knew about that game, and everyone with consoles wish they had a {C to play it!
this though was far more niche so im really surprised to see it doing so well
