Deus Ex: Human Revolution is the Best Movie Trailer I’ve Seen All Year


Holy crap. I don’t post many video game cinematic trailers anymore, but I had to when I saw this spot for Deus Ex: Human Revolution, which is better than every single movie trailer I’ve seen this year. Apparently this debuted at E3, but it’s flown under the radar until now.

It’s perhaps one of the best video game cinematic spots I’ve ever seen. It’s well written, well scored, visually gorgeous, packed with creative action and it really makes me wish this was a feature film. I’m hooked on the storyline after only three minutes, and I’ve never even played a previous Deus Ex game. All this technology does seem just a bit ambitious for 2027, does it not? I’d say 2087 and we’re talking.

I’m sure actual gameplay isn’t quite as cool, but if the story and writing is an in-depth as is implied here, I’ll definitely be checking this out.

    they’re definetly worth it

    I wrote about this in the “Best things at E3” post a while back. Glad to see that it is getting some attention.

  • Name, indeed!

    So they hired Christian Bale to do voice work on this with his “Batman Voice”?

    Def sounds like Christain Bale (having just watched Equilibrium (which I would recommend.)

    But, having watched this, it’s about time someone made fucking Neuromancer into a game. Or something like that.

    Can we say William Gibson? Almost everything I’ve seen there (sprawl, nikon eyes, cyber augmentation, even the dudes mirrorshades resemble one of his main characters) looks like something he’s written about – not that that’s a bad thing, in fact I’m terribly happy about this game. off to play the first 2.
