Great Game Intros : Deus Ex Human Revolution

I could quite easily write a Lost In Translation article about the original Deus Ex.

Hailed by many as a landmark in the videogame medium; I found it to be a fairly drab and frustrating title for its time. Sure, it hinted at the future of games – one where player choice was ingrained into a title’s DNA – but its execution was ultimately flawed. The sequel did nothing to convince anyone of the series’ stature – but Human Revolution finally ticked all the boxes as far as I was concerned.

With a level of style, polish and refinement that finally reflected the series’ lofty neo-noir ambitions; Human Revolution was a consummate game on almost every level – and a deserving reboot of a significant (if overrated) franchise. The first in the series to actually feature engaging combat mechanics; this prequel-story to Deus Ex is without doubt worthy of the acclaim that so many pour upon its namesake.

The intro was pretty slick too.
