DX: Human Revolution Review - The Rageaholic

I have a confession to make, Eidos Montréal.
I doubted you.

I didn't doubt your game design credentials. But let's be real, here: This is a sequel to Deus Ex! Not only was it Game of the Year in 2000, it's since become one of the most influential FPS/RPG hybrids of all time. In my mind, only Thief: The Dark Project and System Shock 2 can toot their figurative horn quite as loudly.
