Vince "Moesha" Massa on Deus Ex: Human Revolution (PC)
The PC version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution has everything going for it that Vader has already mentioned but has a couple of notable benefits not available to a console (and I am sure my mentioning them will spark another debate over which platform is superior. Have at it, you crazed fanboys).
First off, Direct X 11 takes all of the lovely, in game environment and combat effects and makes them that much more dazzling. Being able to fine-tune the anti-aliasing, shadow depth and other advanced graphic settings will allow gamers to tailor the game their specific rig's hardware. And if you have the system that can ramp everything to the max, it is a treat for the eyes to be sure.
Second, the PC version allows you to remap the controls as you see fit. This makes the combat and item management much easier to deal with. Not to mention the use of a keyboard and mouse allow you to more quickly react to whatever situation you are in. However, if you prefer to us a gamepad, you have the option to do so. Just don't let any of your hardcore PC user friends catch you playing that. You'll never live it down later.
Overall, Deus Ex Human Revolution is a must-play, regardless of which system you choose (PC, duh). The variable difficulty settings will allow you to choose how badly you get kicked in the crotch on the missions. The story, characters, visuals, awesome voiceovers and perfectly suited and executed soundtrack make for a gaming experience that no one should miss. Kudos to Edios Montreal!
It hooks you from the beginning and keeps you hooked to the end, superb sci-fi ambience, excellent music, sound effects and voiceovers, an engaging blend of stealth, action and RPG;
Players can't map their controls, AI unresponsive to sound at times, a few other issues here and there, though certainly nothing that spoiled the immersion.
