If someone asked me to describe Deus Ex: Human Revolution in one word, I would use the word...
You have to think about an answer to the constant, yet lingering, quetion the game throws at you of whether or not robotic augmentations are politically correct.
You have to think about where you're gonna explore and what tools you'll need to be able to explore it, because if you're not careful, you might have some areas of a game closed off.
You have to think about how often you should use a weapon, because if you're not careful, you'll probably run out of ammo and end up screwing yourself in a specific situation.
Thinking is the main gameplay mechanic of Deus Ex. Sure, you can argue that it doesn't have a specific gameplay mechanic at all, considering it's a mesh of different genres such as being a sandbox, or an rpg, or just a straight-up fps. But, no matter what you're doing, no matter what genre you play this game for, it always requires you to do one thing:
Deus-Ex is a FPS with RPG elements that somehow feel balanced and extremely well fleshed out. One moment, you're in a facility, either sneaking around or killing, soldiers and terroists on the look-out for you. The next moment, you're in a city-hub, being enraptured in a world full of dark secrets to find in sewer vents or apartments. It's truly a game that can appeal to anyone!
The story of the game is that you play as an Ex-Cop named Adam Jensen, who, after handling a few terroist attacks with his new augmentations, send him on a quest full of conspiracy and political tension as he looks for a close friend of his. I can't say much after that, because then the story would be no fun! :) Let's just say that you're in for a fun ride, and we'll leave it at that. :)
Overall, I recommend this game to any gamer of any kind. It's a game that is a perfect blend of a variety of genres that requires you to consider all of your actions, even those outside of dialogue sequences!
So, yeah, you may have never asked for this, but trust me: You won't regret it! <3
