Let me get the disclaimer out of the way before I go any further. When the original Deus Ex was released back in 2000, it wasn’t even a blip on my radar. College was starting and my eyes were squarely on Baldur's Gate 2 and Diablo 2 at the time. Then came along Deus Ex: Invisible War, the 2003 sequel, and I purposely stayed away from that title, only hearing horrible things about its release including a multitude of bugs, not truly fitting in the atmosphere and world that the original created, etc, etc. But it’s present day in 2011, and a new game has been released into the series: Deus Ex: Human Revolution. This time it’s a prequel to the original. This is perfect; I don’t really need to know anything about the previous two games, and I can go into this one fresh. How will that turn out? Well, read on and we’ll find out together. Please understand that spoilers will be mentioned and that each segment of this series will continually unravel different aspects of the game, much like a review, however, a very long winded review. I’ll explain some side missions, the essence of the overarching story, and go into the details of the different components of the game, namely gameplay, graphics, sound, replay value, and stability. In this first segment, story will be a large focus as you and I will be introduced to what’s going on.
