Still not as good as the original,
This review is from: Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Limited Edition (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Hearing about all the 10/10 reviews etc. I was hoping this would live up to the original.
In terms of look, and basic gameplay, this is actually very close to the original. In terms of the plot, conflict between different groups, trying to work out who is good and who is bad etc. I don't think this compares to the original.
I think I prefer Invisible War. I thought Invisible War was really under rated. It didn't compare with the original for game play and design and so on, but in the plotting and politics etc. I think it was a pretty good sequal. Human Revolution is better in terms of game play, but weaker in terms of plot and interesting ethical dilemmas.
The original is still the best. (And I don't mean the original, judged by 2000 standards, against this judged by today's standards. The original, obviously, has worse graphics and so on, but is just better in terms of choice and story etc.)
Ultimately, still good though.
