(Nth Review #14) Nick dives into the ancient past of 2011 to play the prequel reboot of The Greatest Shooter of All Time: Deus Ex in Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Beyond the sheen and the QoL upgrades, how does it hold up after a decade… and what parts never really held up to begin with?

This review is of the 2013 Director's Cut, although this also covers the entirety of the original 2011 game by proxy.
