Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut trailer

Deus Ex Human Revolution was a game that I loved, apart from the boss fights, that is.

The boss fights were completely out of character compared with the rest of the game, and we all know why: The boss battles were outsourced to another developer.

Now, SquareEnix, DXHR’s publisher, is making amends with the Director’s Cut edition, which promises to offer better graphics, includes the enjoyable Missing Link DLC (which makes more sense being incorporated into the main game rather than making you play it once you’d finished the story) and improved boss battles which let you complete them the way you want, rather than be forced to face off against other augmented characters front on. If you want to hack your way through it, you can. If you want to take them out all-guns blazing, you can, it seems.

You can find more information about The DIrector’s Cut here but nicely, SquiareEnix has a number of ways you can buy the new game: if you don’t own Human Revolution at all, it’ll cost you  £12.99/€19.99/$US19.99; if you own the game but no DLC it’ll set you back £6.99/€7.99/$9.99; if you own the game and the Missing Link DLC it’ll cost you £3.49/€3.99/$4.99. Seems pretty good value, actually, although I’m not sure how much that is in New Zealand dollars (less than $10 perhaps if you own the game and Missing Link DLC?)

I’ve already got the game on Steam (PC) and Xbox 360 so think I’ll “augment” my Steam version and have another crack.

  1. I would be keen to check this out, and I agree about the boss fights ruining Human Revolution. In fact, I wonder if boss fights are relevant anymore, too many times they ruin the flow and enjoyment of the game.

    1. I think in some situations boss fights are still relevant but I think games need to move away from the traditional mid-game/end-of-game boss that we’re familiar with. But developers shouldn’t just put a “boss” fight in because it’s what everyone else is doing.
