Deus Ex Mankind Divided announced!

About This Game

The year is 2052 and the world is a dangerous and chaotic place. Terrorists operate openly - killing thousands; drugs, disease and pollution kill even more. The world's economies are close to collapse and the gap between the insanely wealthy and the desperately poor grows ever wider. Worst of all, an ages old conspiracy bent on world domination has decided that the time is right to emerge from the shadows and take control.

Key Features:


  • Real role-playing from an immersive 3D, first-person perspective. The game includes action, character interaction and problem solving.
  • Realistic, recognizable locations. Many of the locations are built from actual blueprints of real places set in a near future scenario.
  • A game filled with people rather than monsters. This creates empathy with the game characters and enhances the realism of the game world.
  • Rich character development systems: Skills, augmentations, weapon and item selections and multiple solutions to problems ensure that no two players will end the game with similar characters.
  • Multiple solutions to problems and character development choices ensure a varied game experience. Talk, fight or use skills to get past obstacles as the game adapts itself to your style of play.
  • Strong storyline: Built on "real" conspiracy theories, current events and expected advancements in technology. If it's in the game, someone, somewhere believes

System Requirements

    Minimum: 300 MHz Pentium II or equlivalent, Windows 95/98, 64 MB RAM, DirectX 7.0a compliant 3D accelerated video card 16MB VRAM, Direct X 7.0a compliant sound card, Direct X 7.0a or higher (included), 150MB uncompressed hard drive space, Keyboard and Mouse

Went to the ladies restroom for fun,
A lady caught me and told she would report me,
I thought she was kidding,
But she was not, she reported.
Had to hear an earful from my boss Manderly,
infront of my brother,
was embarassed of myself :(
Would not go to the ladies restroom again...

If Steam was Deus Ex...

- I could write this review through the front door, guns blazing.
- I could write this review descending through the rafters of the roof.
- I could write this review while snaking around through air vents.
- I could write this review while picking off targets at a distance.
- I could write this review while slinking around, performing non-lethal takedowns.
- I could write this review while wiring the security systems to turn on my enemies.

I had to go this far back in time to get a game that really understands what choice, flexibility, and options are in a video game... what a shame.

Whoa, what a game. Here's a review from someone who's never played the game before a week ago, and I have to say it's still worthy of all the praise it gets.

In short:
Good
+ Biggest plus is the story, still relevant maybe even more so today.
+ Took me over 30 hours to beat on Normal difficulty and only 1 ending.
+ Gameplay. Surpringly smooth platforming and stealth mechanics. Feels good to change playstyles.
+ Best level design in a single player FPS I might have ever seen. Lots of places to explore and secrets to find for an FPS, even by todays standard.
+ Figuring out certain problems actually requires you to use your brain instead of quest arrows pointing the way you have to go and telling you exactly what you have to do.
+ Completing objectives the way you want to feels AWESOME. You really feel satisfied after completing a mission.
+ Even though the graphics have aged, the voice-acting and sound-effects are still great! (explosions are LOUD) A bit quirky and stereotypical at times, but still endearing and engaging. It really grew on me after a while.

Not-So-Good:
- Controls might be too complex if you're not used to old single player games with lots of buttons and menus. I got used to it though.
- Certain sections might be frustrating. Be prepared to die a lot to find out exactly what to do or what path to take for optimal survival.
- The graphics haven't aged great and you need to get used to it before you start to see all the details like what grates you can or can't open, which buttons to push etc. etc.
- Personally not a fan of some of the RPG-elements. You shoot guns as if you're drunk with parkinsons in the early game, which is annoying.
- You might want to play through it in one go because of the crazy storyline, but the game is LONG so you're forced to take your time with this game. Might actually be a good thing though! Expect it to be far easier after your first playthrough though.

So basically Deus Ex is a fantastic game for any one who enjoys single-player, story-driven games and can overlook some of the elements that haven't aged well. There is enough action for any FPS lover so I recommend it to any one who has enjoyed games like Half-Life 2 or the more recent Fallout games. So put this game on your wishlist and buy it ASAP! This truly is one of the classics every video game fanatic should have played at least once!

I defeated the U.N, aliens, and the Illuminati using a can of pepper spray and a light-up sword.
