There Are Many Ways To Play Deus Ex: Human Revolution

There aren't many games that give you the freedom to play as you want to play like Deus Ex: Human Revolution will. Many action role-playing hybrids will allow you to put points into a stealth or persuasion skill, but at the end of the day you're still going to end up shooting the place all to shit in order to get the job done.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution hits the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on August 23.
