Deus Ex: Human Revolution gave us a game-over screen seconds after the opening credits, and we loved it. We were about to tiptoe into our first mission—deftly defusing a hostage crisis—when we encountered a trio of friendly SWAT guards. “Good guys,” said our brain. “No can hurt,” it concluded in caveman. There is, however, a certain comedic appeal in watching large objects bounce harmlessly off people’s faces, so we assisted a nearby garbage can out of earth’s pesky gravitational pull. THWACK.
