I realized why I was somewhat disappointed of the music of Deus Ex: Human Revolution this year. And actually it’s quite simple. DX:HR’s music is not Daft Punks sublime score of Tron Legacy. The two seemed to be pretty similar at first glance. But eventually were not.
Take a listen to this.
And then compare it with the “Theme” from DXHR. And then tell me I was wrong to expect DXHR to go down a similar road musically.
