So I’m playing Deus Ex: Human Revolution. I really am. I’m not going to let my feelings about the original trip me up. I mean it. I’m going to finish it. Really.
Actually, I don’t think I’m going to make it. I’m almost 5 hours in but have lost momentum.
I’m not really sure what my issue is with Human Revolution. The decision to go guns blazing instead of stealth seems to be more acceptable that it was in the original. There is a choice at the beginning of the mission with no moral judgment passed, at least from what I’ve seen so far.
And yet, I still feel like the game wants me to go stealth. A lot of the characters I talk to mention the sneaky way into wherever it is they are sending me. And a stealth play-through seems to be the only “pure” way through.
