Since the launch of the Director's Cut, we've had a lot of reasons to smile. It seems like the gaming press likes the game as much as we do! Here is what they had to say:
Polygon: All of Tomorrow's Parties
With improvements to the game's flow and excellent second-screen support, the Director's Cut of Human Revolution is the definitive version of an excellent game.
IGN: A Champion of Choice
Deus Ex Human Revolution - Director’s Cut had an unenviable task: take one of 2011’s best games and make it even better, all while figuring out how to best utilize the oft-ignored GamePad. It succeeded on all fronts. The included DLC, the slick GamePad features, and the reworked boss fights make this the definitive version of Jensen’s story.
GameSpot: A Cut Above
Hacking aside, this all sounds more or less like Human Revolution's original incarnation, but the updated release makes meaningful additions and improvements, and includes hours' worth of developer commentary, a sad rarity in video games. [...] What makes Human Revolution on the Wii U special aren't the additional features, but that which was already constructed.
Kotaku: It's A Good Time To Play (Or Replay) Deus Ex: Human Revolution
It makes a good number of improvements and additions to an already great game.
Game Revolution: Deus Ex: Human Revelation
Designed specifically for the Wii U, this is the definitive version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and is worth picking up at full retail if you skipped the game the first time around.
Gaming Trend: Get augmented with Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut
The improvements to the boss fights and inclusion of the DLC alone have made this game worth my while, and anyone who didn’t play this game before now has the single best reason to do so.
Destructoid: Still Quite Revolutionary
Deus Ex: Human Revolution: Director's Cut gives you a ton of extra bang for your buck on top of an already stellar game, and if you haven't experienced it yet, this is the perfect opportunity to do so.
GamerHub.tv: Deux Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut Is A Well-Oiled Machine
With a story that lasts hours on end, additional DLC that will keep you challenged throughout (wait till you get to Missing Link), unbeatable touch-screen implementation and a majority of the same great stuff from the original release, the Director's Cut of Deus Ex: Human Revolution definitely deserves a look. This is how the game was meant to be played, especially on the Wii U, even with its wide control set-up.
