I am a huge Deus Ex fan and believe that this game will need a thread like this.

So far I am in the beginning and at first I was a little let down by the cutscene graphics and such but the in game graphics and the level of detail is great.

Its nice having options of how I want to handle a situation, hack, stealth, full assault.

I was even reading a email and the CEO was sent some Nigerian spam saying they wanted to deposit the sum of 47 million into the account but would need their personal info. LMAO everyone has received one of those before.

As a gamer you owe it to yourself to play this game.

heres a little tip Its nothing major but I found it fun to hack a turret and then carry it around. I would use them to cover aread for me, etc.

I would have loved if this game had a 3D option.

Just started it not too long ago. I've never played a Deus Ex game before so I wouldn't know what to expect. But so far, I like the graphics and the decisions you get to make.

I also agree that this should have a 3D option.

Apart from the sloppy control scheme you can't change and the lip syncing, I'm enjoying it so far. Though really, only having ONE choice of controller mapping in a game built around choice, is.. well, silly. You would think in Today's games we would be able to customise the controls to your own personal liking. Crouching with L3 and aiming down your ironsights with R3, c'mon now, what were they thinking?

Still I'm gonna try to stick it out as it certainly grows on you.

I agree though that all controls in all games should be customizable. Not sure why it's so hard to code.

Okay, okay. For the overly critical or just plain confused;
LSB (Left Stick Button) Aka L3 - Crouch.
RSB (Right Stick Button) Aka R3 - Aim down sights.

I agree I hate this control scheme, I dont like having to use the right analog to look down the sights. After playing El Shaddai, which has fully customization of the button layout, I felt like I took a step back.

The enemy AI can be questionable at times. There have been times that I was crouched right in front of a guy and he acted like he didnt see me saying " Is anyone there ".

Still this is a great game and while playing through the first time, I am planning my next playthrough.

Yeah, "Questionable" is a good way to put it. Sometimes they act very blind and robotic when you're sneaking around and other times they spot you from miles away.

I've been in someone's office hacking their computer while a guard looks through the glass panel in the door right at me and just walked off.

..and don't even get me started on the hacking.

I don't find the load screens too long, but it's ovbious they do take longer than most games. However they aren't as long as Duke Nukem Forever.

Some of the characters you interact with are represented very bad grapically for a game coming out in the second half of 2011. For example, A cop I was talking to had a very square mullet and Playstation 2 face. Sounds trivial, but you will see yourself. Saw worse in Duke..

When going for a Takedown, lethal or not, you hit the B Button and Bam! A quick black screen appears while the animation loads up. Bugs the shit out of me..

Menus are abit clumsy too..

Load times are fine, just if you die on a boss twice quickly, you can't help but be reminded of Duke while you wait on the loading screen.

Graphics - I totally agree. Gameplay makes up for the 'sometimes' graphical letdown.

Not saying there is a bug or glitch with the Takedowns, but it's pretty clear to me you get a black screen for about 20 frames while the Takedown loads. It's quick, almost unnoticable, but still there. And yeah, it's installed on the HDD.

Menu still bugs me abit in general, plus you can't zoom out on the maps.. But love the AUG Upgrade screen. So maybe it all evens out.

..and again with LSB and RSB for crouch and aim-down-sights. STUPID!

Still 8/10 game at the least. Some will say 9 or 10/10 I'm sure..

I don't get why they couldn't come up with a better control scheme. I've not played it yet, but it isn't exactly hard. LT for aim down sights, RT for fire gun, B for crouch, A for jump, X for interact, Y for takedown, START for pause and menu's, LS for movement, RS for camera. Sigh...

Sigh what?
Most of the things you mentioned are already mapped under those buttons and Take Cover is mapped to Left Trigger which makes more sense than Aim.

Crouch is toggled, I guess.

Yeah, I see what you're say, Bum. If the crouch and fine aim buttons are the same in Rainbow Six the transition to Deus Ex would probably be easy.

Thing is, most players will not be coming straight from Rainbow Six due to it's age. Most will be coming from that dreaded game Camp Or Die (C.O.D.) and will be muffled when shit hits the fan in-game and they keep hitting Left Trigger hoping for some form of aim down sights/aim assist/sticky aim.

Last game I was playing was RDR:Undead Nightmare and the control switch to Deus was a bitch to get used to for the first 2 hours or so.

So Bum, I guess if you're into Rainbow Six playing Deus should come pretty easy control wise. I unfortunately never got into Rainbow Six and for the record, don't play C.o.D. games.

Understandable. R6 and CoD are completely different controls wise and I see your point. It is a little dated, most all games use the left trigger for ADS but I stuck with R6 after, what three years now? So from a modern standpoint I completely understand you.

Love how people are complaining about the controls because it isnt mapped like CoD. Thats so funny to me.
L3 to crouch and R3 to aim down sights makes the most sence if you think of it in terms or relation to the character... you move with the left stick and aim with the right stick, both of the other actions make sense on those click controls.

But I do agree that not being able to custom map, which I probably wouldnt do anyway, is like a "wait what?!???!" People can move menus with thier hand and have motion tracking dance games, but I can't switch my A and B button functions? I wonder why they left that out, complete custom remapping is really easy to program, wonder if it was just an oversight. But you would think that would be on like the QA checklist.

And to the guy that posted above me as I was typing, you finished the game this fast with only 230 points? Doesn't sound like addiction sounds like you ran through it asap and didnt do anything other than main story! I cried a little.

Anyway, good thread, and as I don't have the game yet, was just reading up in anticipation.

Why would you do that? There is an achievement related to stealth unless you're bold enough to try for that on the first run. Seems better to go war first then mop up with stealth for the harder achievements :(

complete custom remapping is really easy to program
Although you are right, of course, I am just guessing that L3 and R3 are digital while LT and RT are analog, so if a game is 'counting' on the analog values rather than just using it as another 2 state thing, its not remappable. I have no clue if that's the case for DXHR, just a guess why most console games doesn't have this feature. (That's around the only thing I hate in consoles, tbh.)

Left Trigger is analog, but when You are either in-cover or not-in-cover, it only takes a digital reading. On or off. So you could map it to any button.

I'm also worried about this. I find it really unnatural.

Easy way to "fix" the ADS with R3: Put a Laser Target on your pistol and you'll never have to aim down the ironsights again.

Having finished my first playthrough today, I think this is one of the few games I've played that has completely satisfied me. I had such high hopes before release, and the game totally delivered. From the gameplay, to the story, to all the set pieces/levels, and of course the visuals. Even the conversations between NPCs help drive the story and give you a better understanding of what's going on in the world (I should get an achievement for listening to them all)....wow, just wow.

This game is superb and a solid 9/10 in my opinion. 

Having read the comments in this thread I thought I would share my thoughts as I disagree on a lot of what I've heard:

Firstly, I haven't finished the game yet. I started on hard difficulty and I'm going for the pacifist. I figured playing on hard would be easier if I'm avoiding firefights. So far I'm finding the difficulty balanced very nicely. I have to think about sneaking and learn the guard movement patterns as I don't last long if they spot me.

I'm currently in Detroit for the second time and about halfway through this hub.

Graphically I'm not sure what equipment people are using but I think the game world looks stunning, really sharp and detailed. Ok a couple of the character models look a bit blocky but on the whole I think this is a lovely looking game. I do have a very decent HD TV and I prefer using the VGA cable instead of hdmi as I find this gives a smoother picture.

I've spent around 20ish hours of game time (add another 3/4 hours of reloading) and I reckon I've got another 10 hours left at least. This will mean it's around the same time as Mass effect 2 for me (33 hours). I'm exploring and doing every side quest. This helps build xp and give you augmentations.

The story is utterly engrossing and had me hooked for most of the weekend. It's like a great book where you have that 'one more chapter' addictive quality.

Haven't had a single issue with the controls. Maybe they are better suited to the sneaky game rather than guns blazing but I found them to be fine.

Overall a very decent game. My only very minor quibbles would be that I would have liked to see more people on the streets. Yes this game has a very blade runner feel to it but when your walking down the streets and all you can see is the odd hobo standing by a bin chatting to maybe 2 other people it kinda knocks the atmosphere a little bit for me. Maybe it's the limitation of the xbox hardware I don't know but the gta games seem to be able to pull of a more convincing living breathing city than this game does.

Some of the enemy AI is a bit random. On the whole it's good but sometimes I'll be right next to them and they don't see me.

The achievements could have had a bit more thought. For a game that prides itself on 'play how you want' and 'multiple ways to get tasks done' the achievements sure do force you down the stealth part (pacifist and hound).

These are minor things really and haven't stopped me thoroughly enjoying this game so far.

I love this thread, great to read reactions by "newbies" and Deus Ex-veterans alike.

It's absolutely great to hear people mention the graphics and how it's not on-par with most of the titles out there - but that's what makes it so great for me as a Deus Ex fan.
It makes me a bit nostalgic, remembering the first game back in 2000 and how I thought it was the greatest-looking game of all time :D

I am currently about 6-7 hours into the game (just arrived in China) and I absolutely love it. It's the sort of game that makes me proud to be a gamer and next to Bioshock and the original Deus Ex, it is proof that video games are an absolute art form.

The story, up until now is great - there was not a single moment where it felt out of place or forced. And I love the foreshadowing to the original Deus Ex, all the little tidbits that make me think "Wait a second, that rings a bell!" (Manderley, w00t w00t!!).

I have to agree with OptimusPrime above me concerning one point: The streets look awfully empty, especially in China (anyone who has ever been to any part of China knows what I'm talking about :)) - it's nothing that makes me enjoy the game any less, but it is worth mentioning that a denser atmosphere on the streets of cities would make the story/vibe of the game that much more enjoyable.

And exploring-wise... well, what can I say. This is what Deus Ex is about and they have absolutely nailed the original experience. I am just as happy exploring every nook and cranny of every area I am in as I was in the original Deus Ex. Human Revolution even excels the original in this area, rewarding you time and time again for thinking outside the box and exploring as much as you can.

I remember the first 15 minutes of the game, when I arrived at Sarif HQ (after the first attack) and I was told to meet with Pritchard in his office. I took my time, exploring the whole ground floor, talking to everybody, even eavesdropping on a conversation in the ladies' room - and surely enough, Pritchard told me to keep my dirty habits to myself. I love how they mention some of your exploring-habits in conversations.

All in all, I couldn't be any happier with how Human Revolution turned out, in every aspect.
I find myself not wanting to continue playing, just to prolong my experience with this game and not finish it in one sitting.

And this I haven't done ever since the original and Bioshock.

I have never played a Deus Ex game and, after finishing it, I was very impressed. This was a fantastic game which blended elements of Crisis, Mass Effect and Splinter Cell to create a very fun, memorable experience. Amazing graphics and music, engrossing environments & story, and seamless controls all made Deus Ex a 9.5 and a must play for fans of the aforementioned series.

I've already beat it once on normal using stealth now I'm just leaving Detroit on Hard.

This is my first foray into the Deus Ex Universe and what I have played of the game so far has been fantastic. I really didn't get to play much of the game since I had to leave for Europe the next day after launch. From the one one main quest and three or so side quest's, I had a blast and I can't wait to get back to the States to pick up where I had left off, doing a couple of missions inside of the police station. :woop:

Left Trigger is analog, but when You are either in-cover or not-in-cover, it only takes a digital reading. On or off. So you could map it to any button.



Easy way to "fix" the ADS with R3: Put a Laser Target on your pistol and you'll never have to aim down the ironsights again.

Haha i say put the target leading system on the machine pistol and you won't have to aim ever again, come on it curves the bullet into them (Wanted XD)

This was one of the best games i ever played. It combined a lot of elements i really enjoyed playing, mostly from games that i consider favorites.
Rainbow 6 Vegas: Shooting in the FP but when "hugging" a wall and blindfiring it becomes Third Person.
Splinter Cell: Hacking,Stealth,Hiding bodys. One of the Best spy games i consider it to be an all time classic for me
RPG: Points you can put into a skill tree as whether your fighting them head on such as upgrading Dermal Armor Early or Stealth,The Cloaking system.
I hope the game gives the Big 3's (GOW3,MW2,BF3) a run for their money for Game Of The Year

I love this thread, great to read reactions by "newbies" and Deus Ex-veterans alike.

It's absolutely great to hear people mention the graphics and how it's not on-par with most of the titles out there - but that's what makes it so great for me as a Deus Ex fan.
It makes me a bit nostalgic, remembering the first game back in 2000 and how I thought it was the greatest-looking game of all time :D

I am currently about 6-7 hours into the game (just arrived in China) and I absolutely love it. It's the sort of game that makes me proud to be a gamer and next to Bioshock and the original Deus Ex, it is proof that video games are an absolute art form.

The story, up until now is great - there was not a single moment where it felt out of place or forced. And I love the foreshadowing to the original Deus Ex, all the little tidbits that make me think "Wait a second, that rings a bell!" (Manderley, w00t w00t!!).

I have to agree with OptimusPrime above me concerning one point: The streets look awfully empty, especially in China (anyone who has ever been to any part of China knows what I'm talking about :)) - it's nothing that makes me enjoy the game any less, but it is worth mentioning that a denser atmosphere on the streets of cities would make the story/vibe of the game that much more enjoyable.

And exploring-wise... well, what can I say. This is what Deus Ex is about and they have absolutely nailed the original experience. I am just as happy exploring every nook and cranny of every area I am in as I was in the original Deus Ex. Human Revolution even excels the original in this area, rewarding you time and time again for thinking outside the box and exploring as much as you can.

I remember the first 15 minutes of the game, when I arrived at Sarif HQ (after the first attack) and I was told to meet with Pritchard in his office. I took my time, exploring the whole ground floor, talking to everybody, even eavesdropping on a conversation in the ladies' room - and surely enough, Pritchard told me to keep my dirty habits to myself. I love how they mention some of your exploring-habits in conversations.

All in all, I couldn't be any happier with how Human Revolution turned out, in every aspect.
I find myself not wanting to continue playing, just to prolong my experience with this game and not finish it in one sitting.

And this I haven't done ever since the original and Bioshock.

Great post, friend.

I enjoyed the game quite a bit, was a big fan of the first game. The only thing I would have liked is a much longer story, I didnt want it to end lol. The music is absolutely perfect, love the soundtrack to death.

Loved the game, and would agree 9/10 easily enough.

I had no trouble with the play control, it was all pretty fluid IMHO, although I'm finding myself pressing :xbut: constantly in everything now :p.

The only issues I found was my own inability to think of alternatives in some spots and as has already been stated was the load times. But, I can let that slide.

Story was fantastic, all the "little" things like Pritchard's snide comments, civilian comments, conversations going on around you, FF27 posters and all the easter eggs and references were great. It was all very atmospheric and added a lot of depth.

Just beat it the first time last night, save/reloaded for the 4 endings and was blown away by the depth they put into all of them. The amount of thought and detail Eidos put into it, this game shows an incredible amount of love for the Deus Ex world.

Finally 1k'd the game a couple hours ago. Loved every minute of it, and I will probably go back for a little extra dose in the future. I agree with people that having custom button mapping, or even 3-4 presets would have been nice, but I personally never change the default controls on games. At first I found the right stick as the iron-sight button to be annoying, but once I got going in the game and realized how little I needed or wanted to use iron sights that it was a smart choice. If I were going in guns a blazing, I might think differently, but cover was used 99.9% more than iron sights were in my 2 playthroughs. To each his own, but I loved cover on LT.

Most importantly, I'm glad that the crappy drought of summer games is over. This was the first game of many I will be buying over the next 6+ months - culminating in what I hope to be the greatest game I ever play, Mass Effect 3, I've got it on a pedistal that it can't possibly live up to - and Deus Ex really delivered as a signal that the crappy summer is over. Loved it completely and am very glad I gave this company my money. My only regret is I didn't get the pre-order Adam Jensen figure that some areas got because it wasn't released in the US. I'm envious of all of you that got it :P
