Tissue alert – Deus Ex: Human Defiance is just the name of the movie


By on March 3, 2013 at 11:07 am

Deus Ex: Human Defiance is not an upcoming video game, games industry super-detective Superannuation has determined.

Following an outburst of excited interest in a Square Enix trademark for the title, the ever-curious snoop turned up a domain registration for the same title by CBS Films, the company behind the upcoming movie from the director of Sinister.

At this point, there’s a possibility of a tie-in of some kind but it’s far more likely simply a defensive move ahead of the movie title’s reveal. When you finish sobbing hopelessly over the lack of a follow-up to Human Revolution, just remember that Eidos Montreal is not-so-secretly working on Thief 4, which is a pretty good substitute.

Shame really. I was kinda hoping it would be a new game to make up for the steaming pile of excrement that was Human Revolution.





Human Revolution was great.



If dead cities with the same 20 npc models re-used over and over with a meh story and no challenging gameplay is your thing then sure, it was great.


Damn I had my hopes up, loved this game, story was awesome.



I’ll meet you both ways, it was a good attempt but there’s a lot wrong with it.


I loved Human Revolution, thought it was a worthy successor to the original. Heck I don’t even think Dishonored is close in terms of story, atmosphere and such. It’s amazing how much some people hate it though – there are FAR worse games out there to be classed as excrement. The CoD games come to mind.



The only thing Human Revolution can claim that it did right was the story but that’s purely subjective. Every single other aspect about it is undeniably poor.

At least the CoD games have the decency to know what they are instead of pretending to be something more.



We could both make lists of how each other is wrong, but I guess the only civil response is that we have to agree to disagree. All I know is that I found it interesting, intriguing and tons of fun and continue to replay the game every so often – the latter of which tends to be a sign that it’s (in my opinion of course) a great game.


human revolution was awsome, you’re in a minority saying it was crap lol wasn’t as good as the first one, but it was still a tight game.


Human Revolution was great.

Put me down as someone else who enjoyed Human Revolution (loved the first Deus Ex game too, but hated the second). Sure HR wasn’t perfect, but it brought me back to the Deus Ex universe for a few days and that’s all I really wanted. The atmosphere, graphics, voice acting, story (while a little cliched) and gameplay were all engaging, and I had fun augmenting myself as the game went on.

The one thing truly crappy aspect to the game (I find pretty much everyone agrees with) were the boss-fights, which I believe were outsourced to another game development company? They were rendered poorly, either ridiculously easy or stupidly hard to kill, and didn’t seem to fit in with the feel of the game at all. However they only make up a small portion of the game, and I enjoyed the rest of it immensely.


HR was good, but not the masterpiece the press and certain gamers hailed it as. It is equally ridiculous to call it a bad game, though.

If they can make a Deus Ex game that has the style and atmosphere of HR but the freedom of something like GTA and the character development and plot of the first game, they will have a masterpiece on their hands.

Don’t ask too much, do I!


hope they don’t let us down with this movie, and hope a sequel of human revolution comes out, loved the world of 2024
