Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Ultimate Edition Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 10 comments

Today is the release day for Feral Interactive's Mac version of the first-person role-playing game Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Ultimate Edition. Developed by Eidos Montreal and published by Square Enix for games consoles and Windows PC, Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a prequel to the classic Deus Ex.

The Mac release of Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Ultimate Edition contains the Explosive Mission and Tactical Enhancement packs, as well as The Missing Link DLC.

Set in 2027, Deus Ex: Human Revolution immerses players in a world where amoral corporations market biomechanical modifications that blur the boundary between man and machine. The player controls Adam Jensen, the security chief of biotech company Sarif Industries, who has been forced to undergo extensive cybernetic augmentation after a terrorist attack on the company.

To find those responsible, the player must explore the full potential of Adam’s augmented body and develop it to suit their playing style. Every situation can be approached either by focusing on one of the four pillars of gameplay - combat, stealth, hacking and social - or by deploying an artful combination of all four.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s engrossing plot puts players in strikingly inventive visions of Detroit, Shanghai and Montreal, where they must scrutinize everything to uncover the secrets behind a global conspiracy that threatens everyone, from the purely human underclass to the augmented elite.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution has enjoyed huge critical and commercial success on its original release platforms. The Windows version has an average Metacritic rating of 90 out of 100 and has sold over 3 million units to date.

  • 2.0GHz Intel Mac

IMG Reviews The Darkness II
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of 2K Games' The Darkness II. The story driven first person shooter puts players in the role of Jackie Estacado, a crime boss with supernatural powers who must do battle with even darker forces than himself.

Graphically, The Darkness 2 embodies its comic book origins with cel-shaded graphics and a vibrant art style. It looks great and the many contrasts on display help enemies stand out and environments shine. There are a few stereotypical locations such as a deserted fair, graveyard and whore house, but this doesn't hurt as everything is well designed. Your Darkness arms are a shady blue with pulsing purple lines and they hiss and wave about menacingly. Guns look and feel good and everyone is well animated. Even character faces have believable reactions and expressions.
