    Deus Ex: Human Revolution

    Hey there, I was wanting to know peoples thoughts and or opinions on Deus Ex: Human Revolution. You see, I'm looking for games to tide me over until The Witcher 3 and I just recently found out about this series, but not entirely sure what it is. What kind of game genre is it? Is it an RPG? A stealth-shooter type? Also is the story solid?

    RPG-1st person-shooter, like Fallout 3/NV or Elder Scrolls. Human Revolution was and is an AMAZING game,- the story, the ambience, the gameplay... Mmmmm! Seriously,- 10/10, only downside is that it's short'ish, like 30'ish hours.

    So, I should probably get the directors cut as well to learn about everything?

    Solid stealth-based game, decent FPS mechanics (they work, but are so-so at best if you go for a run & gun character), poorly designed boss fights (these were outsourced and don't fit well into the overall design of the game), horrible ending(s). I'd says its worth a play if you can get it cheap.

    Well the only other RPG shooters I've played were Fallout 3/New Vegas and the Mass Effect trilogy so is this different in some regards?

    Definitely a must play if you haven't yet.

    It has some differences (the hacking mini games) but the shooting mechanics are fairly similar. However, unlike those games there is usually more than one way to complete a mission in Deus Ex: HR

    It's a good game. Don't expect to be blown away like with Deus Ex 1, but it's solid. It has feels.

    Deus Ex puts more focus on being able to stealthily handle every situation (prepare to crawl through a lot of ventilation shafts), and having more than one approach, like being able to enter a building for your objective through the main door (guns blazing), rooftop entrance (figuring out how the heck you get up there), or basement (get past electronic defenses).

    I thought the plot was meh and the gameplay becomes kind of repetitive in a while. Still, since there are few Sci-Fi RPGs released these days, I'd say this game is worth playing through once.

    The combat itself is somewhat similar to that of Mass Effect: you hide behind a cover and shoot enemies down. Stealth is more interesting, you can, in fact, get through the whole game without killing anyone but 4 bosses (that's what I did), and there are some interesting ways you can to approach certain cases, there are usually, at least, a few different ways to get to your destination without attracting attention.

    Soundtrack in this game is absolutely amazing, and graphics is very good.

    The directors cut integrates the DLC, changes the boss fights up a bit and improves a bunch of other things. There were issues with patch features missing when it came out though, so you should check if that has been fixed.

    In general its a really good game. I really liked the conversation minigame where you have to convince people based on their facial reactions and the story is quite deep if you read the e-books scattered around.

    It's really good game but it has some flaws. Bullet-spongy Boss Battles (even in Director's Cut, although it adds other ways to engage those bosses, they still kept the HP pool huge though). The game has quite awkward character animation in conversation mode, as when you talk to NPC's they usually just "stutter" randomly, with no actual lip-sync or any other human aspect. You'll certainly notice it when you engage in conversation with your first NPC you meet in the game. Also the ingame map is difficult to navigate sometimes and there is inventory Tetris with oversized weapons (which each take too much space), you can disable inventory Tetris though.

    Now I'm just nit-picking, it's only the boss battles and animation sometimes, everything else is fine..
