Although I'd first have to buy a Wii U - DX:HR Director's cut for Wii U AND they're fixing the boss battles!!

Deus Ex's boss battles are considered by many to be the weakest part of the game. They were frustrating, combat heavy fights that broke Deus Ex's sneaky heart, forcing players to fire guns pathetically after they'd popped all their upgrade points into stealth and hacking. In short, the boss battles were a bit crap, and it came as no surprise when it was revealed that their development had, in fact, been outsourced.

"We went through all the boss battles and said, 'let's just start from the beginning,'" Pedneault says. "So that's exactly what we did."

Each of the game's three boss fights have had their map layouts reworked to provide players with alternative potential strategies. New hacking challenges are available to players who focus on hacking, and stealth options are available to those who focus on stealth.

Be forewarned: if you haven't completed the game, there are potential spoilers in the article. Which brings up the question of where the heck did the spoiler button go? confused

It's the dude with the sunglasses on the lower row of buttons, I think.

testing...

Yup. Does that lower row work like the WP Editor Kitchen Sink? Only shows up when you ask it to? If you don't see the sunglasses button let me know and I'll pummel the forum.

This Human Revolution thing seems like a nice nod... though I'm saddened that it's Wii U only. They should do a Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition thing and just patch across all platforms. It's not like there's a subculture of people who liked the boss battles and wouldn't see them changed.

Thanks for the heads up Toger! I hadn't heard a peep about this. :)

You can't change the boss battles! Artistic integrity! And such!

Though seriously, patch this before I get to the first boss battle! That would be nice.

I would play it again, if they patched the boss battles so I could continue my stealth run.

Although, dragging a hacked turret to help out with one boss made me giggle.
