Wicked. That's all I can say. FPS, role-playing, tons of excellent recorded dialog. Just wicked.

Potential GoTY.

I rarely get games brand new. And in all honesty, money isn't in place. But I got a PRE-ORDER copy for free, and I am stuck. I can't get off of the PC. It is that addictive.

Note on system performance: I am still running an Athlon X2 at 3.4Ghz (OCd), and the cutscenes do in fact stutter due to processor peaking. While I am still WAY over the minimum system requirements, this is a joke, really, as lower than me wouldn't be able to play half of it well.

My HD 4670 is sufficient to play the game at full HD, good quality, and decent frame rate, but a better card would be able to push out the shadowing and effects.

If you are into Shadowrun, or role-playing games, this is a must buy. If you prefer a straight on shoot-them-all-until-they're-dead game style, probably not.

Is this game anything like Elder Scrolls or Fallout? I'm contemplating on getting it but I want to get Dead Island when it comes out.

Sounds like a decent game and there are very few of those.

Quality Game! I didn't think I was going to enjoy it as much as i do.

The only bug with it is the moaning GF who tries to pull my fingers off the keyboard with a crowbar lol. Think it upsets her when I say I'm going to be on it for an hour and end up with an all afternoon and night session

whoops me ;-)

Also to note I have the same problem with the stuttering. Tried it on the laptop which is not slow my no means and it stutters and freezes all over the place, yet it plays flawlessly on my 2500k and gtx480

ROFLMAO!!! Yeah, my wife has watched me sit down for an hour, like around 6PM, and then drags me off 8 hours later. I have no clue it's been so long!

The exploration is awesome. I probably missed some stuff... but not much! The world is HUGE!!!

I think it was your difficulty level. On hard (or whatever) everyone in the game is paranoid, and you are walking on eggshells. Lots of fun dragging all of the cops unconscious bodies into the vents, though the pile was too big to crawl over.

Yes, I'm a nice guy. I knocked them out, didn't kill them. Plenty of other dudes who deserved harsher treatment.

In the first part where you have to get into the police station I ended up killing everyone and having a stack of bodies it reminds of Hitman Blood Money :p also the new game of hitman 47 is coming out ^.^

I enjoyed the game a lot. I played the original but the graphics killed the experience for me. And with better AI stealthing in Human Revolution felt even better. They did a really nice job of catering to both spectrums of players, the stealthy and the run and gun.

I loved DE:HR, the only complaint I could make is that all of the trailers for the game immersed you in this world of riots, deep moral choices, etc. I didn't get that feeling as much while playing the game
