I don’t know about you, but I’ve been waiting a hell of a long time for a game like that. I’ve been humping low walls, shooting NPCs and trying to smash down locked doors for eleven years, and every game has broken, buckled or refused to react until now.
The reason nothing has replaced Deus Ex might not be that no one understands it. It just wasn’t a huge commercial hit, so how can anyone justify such a big investment in something so open-ended?
Eidos Montreal’s spit, polish and fist-chisel punches have found a way, and I hope we won’t let it be the last time for another decade. I’d love to see Human Revolution show that smart can sell, and that gamers love freedom more than they love firing assault rifles at the Middle-East.
