‘Deus Ex: Human Revolution’ a worthy prequel
Technology versus humanity, government versus the people, haves versus have-nots, violence versus compassion - if you crave a game that engages your intellect and morality as much as it exercises your thumbs, you are ready for this revolution.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a dystopian sci-fi epic that serves as a prequel to 2000’s critically lauded Deus Ex, a game that proved run-n’-gun action and thinking-person’s role-playing could be successfully, wonderfully blended.
Set in the year 2027, Human Revolution casts players as Adam Jensen, the growly-voiced head of security for biotechnology firm Sarif Industries. When the company’s headquarters are attacked and several top scientists are apparently murdered, Jensen - brought back from near-death through cyborg-like “augmentations” - must travel from Detroit to Shanghai to Montreal and (way) beyond, tracking down those responsible and peeling back layers of corporate and government conspiracy.
