TOTW: Deus Ex Human Revolution
Deus Ex starts a Revolution on Tune of the Week!
Deus Ex: Human Revolution is set 15 years from now. The game has many themes; human enhancement, rich corporations controlling the government, (hmm…) and human survival just to name a few.
Like the Uncharted series the game borrows many elements from some of the industries’ best franchises. Mass Effect’s dialogue system, Metal Gear Solid’s stealth system and more.
What makes this game unique is its calm, electronic, vocal filled, intense music.
Unlike many games, the soundtrack does not rise in epic climax during some of the more chaotic battles. It keeps its futuristic calm vibe while still managing to intensify the score. This allows the soundtrack to keep its identity and never removes you from the Human Revolution that is taking place all over.
Veteren-video game composer Michael McCann once again goes beyond the ‘call of duty’ and gives us a more than stellar soundtrack.
