Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Square Enix

Video Game

The first Deus Ex revolutionized so much in the video games sphere that almost every shooter/rpg since can attribute much it’s role-playing and storytelling elements directly to the Eidos Interactive game.  Human Revolution marks the third volume in the series and includes more of the great story intrigue, backstabbing, conspiracy theory extravaganza that has become synonymous with the Deus Ex trademark.  Set 25 years before the first Deus Ex, you play as Adam Jensen, a recently augmented security guard, who, due to a violent “terrorist” attack, has become one of the earliest humans to experience first-hand the body modifying augmentations that have become so common place in the setting by the time the earlier titles in the series had taken place.  The game deals with all sorts of ethical dilemmas in its complicated plot that the title almost transcends what is commonly thought of as a video game.  It’s deep, moving, philosophically groundbreaking and most importantly, it’s amazingly fun.
