Yesterday, I wrote a post about some of the things I really like in Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Today, I thought I'd share a video demonstrating some of them. This video shows some highlights from the first mission in the game—stealth, hacking, cover, takedowns, conversation, negotiation, and exploration. Since it takes place near the start of the game, it's pretty spoiler-lite, though it does show a lot of the level, plus a few ways the mission can end.

While making the video (it's from the PC version), I was struck at just how differently each scenario could go down. I had a lot of fun recreating a few encounters and, by behaving differently, causing a dramatically different outcome.

For all the elbow-stabbing, cop-punching, wall-hugging, and cabrone-wrangling you can handle, give it a watch!
