Sorry I haven't posted in a long time but I've been extremely busy with work. But before I continue on this preview I just wanted to tell you to go watch the trailer at the bottom...was that not epic?! The story is fresh, the graphics look amazing and the game-play itself looks great, plus did you see the way he broke that guy's neck after punching through the wall? Wow. Dues Ex: Human Revolution is actually a prequel to the original Deus Ex and Deus Ex: Invisible Wars. The protagonist is Adam Jensen, an ex-SWAT specialist who is hired to protect a scientist working at a controversial biotechnology firm. But when that scientist is killed by a black ops team, Adam is badly wounded during the attack and the only way to keep him alive is to attach human augments to him. These augments give people super human capabilities and are causing great amounts of controversy in the year 2027. People are being slowly dividing themselves into those who can afford the enhancement and those who can't. Human Revolution is primarily a first person shooter with third person elements during the use of cover, certain augments and instant-kill melee moves. The game also has major role-play elements such as being able to expend experience into skills like social, stealth, combat and technology. This game allows you to play through it with many different choices: do you want to fight your way through? Sneak around? Steal information? Or interrogate people during the level? The choices you make can be made easier with the upgrading of the skills listed above. This game come out for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on the 23rd of August. Circle that date on your calendars because this could be one of the biggest games of 2011.
