We Need A Revolution...

Gameplay - 8/10
Storyline - 10/10
Graphics - 9/10
Game Score : 27/30

In the words of popular boy band of former days Nsync; "here we go, one more time, everybody's feeling fine; here we go now." Welcome to yet another Friday game review here on Zalgo Cometh; did you miss me? I know I missed you. Today we are looking at Deus Ex: Human Revolution. 

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is an action role-playing game developed by Eidos Montreal and published by Square Enix. It is the third game in the Deus Ex series, and a prequel to the original game released in 2000. The game is set in 2027, 25 years before the first title, where corporations have extended their influence past the reach of global governments. The game follows Adam Jensen, the security chief for one of the game's most powerful corporations, Sarif Industries. After a devastating attack on Sarif's headquarters, Adam is forced to undergo radical surgeries that fuse his body with mechanical augmentations, and he is embroiled in the search for those responsible for the attack.

In this day and age games of this caliber are far apart and few; as such they are to be celebrated. Sadly even great games cannot be perfect but thankfully the minor flaws with this game do not heavily impede the awesomeness with runneth over from this game. The main flaw of which would be that the load screens in this game are abysmal, so be forewarned you can go and make a sandwich and come back to enjoy your game. Thankfully the great story and engaging game-play keeps you coming back for more; not to mention the immense replay value that this game holds from all its varying options and branching story options. Feel free to experiment and find the play-style that suits you; whether you are the brash bad-ass that kills all the bad guys, or the stealthy ninja that moves in the shadows; the choice and freedom is yours. The different "pillars of gameplay", as called by the developers, are "Combat", "Stealth", "Hacking", and "Exploration". As you progress through the game you will gain access to various 'Augmentations' that will aid you in your gameplay experience. Augmentations are technological modifications to the body that allow the user to use superhuman abilities. These Augmentations cater to each of the four gameplay types. Augmentations, while enhancing the player's performance in each of the gameplay types, also allow players to craft their own methods of play as they see fit. Bottom line if you own a PC, PS3 or XBOX 360 this game is undoubtedly a sound and viable addition to your gaming library...
