Eidos could be next in line to make a Final Fantasy game

Handing off the development of an established Japanese series to a western studio isn't the most shocking idea around. When both Silent Hill and Devil May Cry were feared long in the tooth, Konami and Capcom, respectively, le...

Review: Deus Ex Human Revolution: Director's Cut (Wii U)
by Chris Carter

Deus Ex: Human Revolution was quite the accomplishment when it was released. It wasn't everything an old-school Deus Ex fan could ask for (those boss fights), but it was a very reasonable compromise, and a great game in its own right.

Fast forward over two years later, and the Director's Cut is now gracing the twilight of the current console era, with new content and improved visuals in tow. While I'm not quite sure those extras are enough to sway fans who have already beaten the game from top to bottom, the good news is it's still the same great game we all enjoyed back in 2011.

Review: Deus Ex: The Fall
by Chris Carter

After a pretty tantalizing teaser, Square Enix was all set to announce the anticipated follow-up to the successful Deus Ex Human Revolution -- and much to the ire of fans, it ended up being a mobile exclusive.

It's not all bad news though, as Deus Ex: The Fall actually works pretty well considering the platform, and offers up a lighter, more portable version of Human Revolution. That said, it would have been a much better experience on a dedicated portable -- or at the very least, anything offering tactile controls.

Deus Ex: The Fall is a full-fledged experience
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Deus Ex: The Fall is a the next entry to the much loved series, heading for iOS this summer, with an Android version coming sometime there after. This may not be what you asked for, but don't write it off either. Mobile games have come a long way, and I was quite impressed with what I got to play at a recent Square Enix showing. Plus, this will be a nice hold over until whatever the next entry will be for Deus Ex on PCs and consoles.

The Fall represents a true Deus Ex experience, featuring multiple play styles, player choice, and loads of customization. More importantly, these are some of the best controls I've seen when it comes to touch screens trying to match physical inputs.
