Our pick of the titles that stood out at the German games convention.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Xbox 360, PS3 and PC
The E3 showing of Human Revolution seemed to make a big impact on everyone who saw it – so much so that one punter we spotted appeared to be on the verge of tears. While the gamescom demo didn't feel quite as shockingly fresh it was still pretty damn good, showing three different ways to work through an early mission: via stealth, smooth-talking, and all-out kerblammo massacre. There was also a fleeting mention of a man named Manderly – a detail that sent audible ripples through the veteran Deus Ex fans in the room. So far everything has looked incredibly promising, and now we're hungrier than ever to actually play the game for ourselves.
