Ok guys, my review copy arrived yesterday.

http://twitpic.com/67nu5n


Yes it's an X360 version, but I've seen the PS3 version on two occasions now, E3 2010 and E3 2011 and I cna tell you both versions are identical.


So tell me, what would you like to get out of a DE:HR review? And I mean specifically, what would you like to know about?

I'm looking forward to the title. I pre-ordered six months ago on the preview info.


I'm looking forward to a solid rpg experience, especially after playing Dragon age 2. Is it a sanbox (Oblivion) type of game or is it linear? Can you seemlessly explore different areas or is it like Dragon Age with the map/travel to system? How is the combat? Is the story involving and interesting, or is it like DA 2 where I have no idea what the hell the purpose is? I suppose that's about it. Thanks.

Two things: Is the enemy AI the smart kind, or the dumb kind? Also would like to know if you can really play through the entire game as a non killing stealth guy, or a bullet spewing super soldier. Lots of games say you can but seldom put it into practice.

Some detail on the customization/skill trees. I know it's a given, but an in-depth look would be great.

The early reviews have been quite positive. From Joystiq :

Quote:
Looks like Deus Ex: Human Revolution is setting a high bar for the deluge of mega-titles launching between now and the holidays. Our review called the title "an imperfect, complex and ambitious reminder of what a game can be when it's unafraid." That theme plays out in several other reviews, with the imperfections being far outweighed by the game's considerable execution and ambition.
  • Eurogamer (90/100): "Deus Ex: Human Revolution is probably not as perfect as I'm making it sound. Some of the rules about what's interactive and not seem quite arbitrary, which is a pretty blatant failing in a game which tries so hard to make you feel like you're not being restricted, and while the level design is clever and varied, the interior design definitely is not, and there's also a lot of repetition in the incidental details."
  • IGN (90/100): "It's a visionary, considered piece of work, and while my thoughts drift to the things that could have been and the compromises made due to the possibilities of video games in 2011, they're just as quick to consider playing through it again. Human Revolution is a smart, rewarding piece of transhumanist noir that does justice not just to Deus Ex, but to the fiction that inspired it. "
  • GameTrailers (87/100): "Deus Ex offers a good deal of mischief to get into, and it's all backed up by a great stealth system and a solid shooting game. With its variable story, as well as how it encourages you to alter your approach to obstacles, it's also a game that rewards multiple playthroughs. The future is bleak and at times ugly, but we wouldn't have it any other way."
  • 1UP (A): "I don't normally replay games, but there are exceptions: I've probably played through Metal Gear Solid 3 a dozen times and Deus Ex about four. I have a feeling that DEHR is going to be one of those games. I'm loving the sheer amount of choice I have because it's up to me to discover it. "

I'd seriously been ignoring this game because of the lackluster sequel. The first game had some real talent and lineage behind it, but I really didn't expect this third game to amount to much.


Looks like I was wrong. I'll definitely check this out ASAP.

I haven't played the other games. Anybody know if knowledge of the earlier story will be important to understand what's going on in this game?

This is a prequel, so I imagine not.

This is a pretty good game. I've never played the previous games, but I like how it lets you choose between a "guns a blazing" or stealth approach. The graphics aren't the greatest, but I knew this going in. It's kind of a cross between Mass Effect and Metal Gear in that it's essentially a stealth shooter with RPG elements. The hybrid FPS/third person cover works surprisingly well.


There are a few annoying things (like how some people don't face you when you talk to them), but the main problem I have with this game is the story. I love the whole cyberpunk world that has been created, but the story is a huge part of this game and I'm having a hard time getting into it. I don't know if it's the bad voice acting or the boring dialogue, but it's just not working for me. It really makes me appreciate Bioware for their storytelling in the Mass Effect series.


I'm afraid if I don't get this game done by Sept. 6th, it will probably join my ever increasing pile of unfinished games (Sept. - Resistance 3, Gears of War 3; Oct. - Rage, Dark Souls, Batman AC, Battlefield 3; Nov. - Uncharted 3, MW3, Skyrim).

Gamestop is the only company I know of that opens games and still sell them as new. Taking out coupons is a new low. Nice slippery slope.


And I plan on supporting the Gamestop machine by trading in my PS3 to them...yes, I feed the beast.

Opens them, sells them as new, then refuses returns of opened games.


They're the devil. I'll have no moral qualm about "selling" them my YLOD PS3 for a slim. Business is business after all.

lol if what gamestop tries to do in the netherlands. i would do the same we when i sued sony. it would be an easy win too.


seems in USA and UK you can get away with it.


what gamestop should have done, deliver all the sealed copies back to Square. demand they take it out. and give them new sealed games.


instead gamestop opens up the pc game boxes take out the onlive code and then sell it.


basicly you get a second hands game.


although i understand what gamestop tries to do, they do it the wrong way.


if that **** would happen to me, man would be a sweet day in court.

I think it's funny the gaming community is up in Arms but Square says, "Well we didn't tell them, so we can't be mad."

They allowed the Portal 2 promo code for STEAM for PS3 Copies because STEAM made them aware of the promo.


As far as the open copy of games; it's either that or you start paying more to cover the THEFTS that would occur. You need to display a game for sale. They could put a fake cover art on the floor but then people would ***** about it not being the real case and can't check player amounts, co-op, on-line functions and so on. On top of that there would be people bitching about how the game was on the shelf but GS did have any copies false advertising, blah, blah, blah.


People are crazy sometimes with what they think the world owes them; in my experience, if the NEW copy is a floor or display copy and the seal is broken; you can simply ask for a discount; I’ve never had any problems getting 10% off an opened copy.


Honestly! How many people that purchased the game even knew what OnLive was; i'd say about 1-3%, just saying; it's dumb when this becomes National/World News; when the UK just release 9,000 pages of UFO files, Geezzz Laaaa Weeeezzz, GOSH!!!!!!

What are you trying to say RoguishClyde? Your rant is not very clear. Are you defending GS and saying that it is the customers fault for buying a new game that has been tampered with and they should demand a discount? How about they just NOT f#$% with the game contents and just sell it? They are already a POS company that over charges for everything and prey upon ignorance and laziness.
