With Deus Ex: Human Revolution set for a North American release later this month, August 23, you might be wondering whether this game is worth buying, well recently we found out that PCGamer has already reviewed the game and it resulted in a score of 94/100.
Currently the review has not gone public, however if you buy the next issue of the PC Gamer magazine which arrives on August 3 you will be able to see it in full, apparently it was awarded an Editor’s Choice award and a statement says that Deus Ex: Human Revolution is “A game that puts almost everything else in the genre to shame”.
Over the years there have only been a handful of games which PCGamer has scored higher than 94/100, these include Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri, Half-Life, Half-Life 2, Civilization II, Company of Heroes, Black & White, Far Cry, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. As you can see there is no shame in being less impressive than the aforementioned games, to put 94/100 into some context here are some other games which received the same score from PCGamer: Freedom Force, Deus Ex, Diablo II, Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, Baldur’s Gate, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II, Doom 3, Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings, Empire Earth II, Battlefield 2, BioShock, Sid Meier’s Civilization IV, Far Cry 2, and Portal 2.
As you can see Deus Ex: Human Revolution seems to be joining an elite list of games, however we must remember that different critics may not be quite as fond of the game as PCGamer is, the best thing to do is buy the August 3 issue of the PCGamer magazine and check out the fully detailed eight-page review for yourself. As this is the first time a game in the series has hit PS3 and Xbox 360 we expect a massive improvement when compared to 2003’s Deus Ex: Invisible War and 2000’s Deus Ex, especially in terms of visuals and multiplayer elements. Also as it has been roughly 8 years since PC hardware got its hands on Invisible War it will be interesting to see just how good Human Revolution looks with DirectX 11, we can’t wait to see!
