About the 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

Deus Ex has to be one of -the- best RPGs I've ever played. The 30-something-hour story is quite interesting and spans many different locations filled to the brim with things to discover and areas to explore.

The dialogue does have its quirky moments where the recordings feel so off, but it does not impact the overall experience in any significant way. If anything, the corny lines and the questionable delivery of said lines only add to it. The music in this game just kicks ♥♥♥ and fits the mood perfectly.

Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition is most definitely worth your time and money. I don't care how much or little you're planning to pay for it. Just get it, ok? :)

Deus Ex is arguably the best video game ever made. It's definitely my favorite game, and trust me, I've played a TON of them. It was truly ahead of its time; it's unfortunate that the graphics haven't aged well. If you don't mind terrible graphics, I can't recommend this game enough.

Your appointment to FEMA should be finalized within the week i've already disscussed the matter with the senator.

I take it he was agreeable?

Oh yes.

Has he been infected?

Oh yes.

I hope you're not underesti-

Oh yes.

When I mentioned when I could put him on the priority list for the ambroisa vaccine he was desperate.

This plauge, the rioting is intensifying to the point where we might be not able to contain it.

Why contian it? ... Iz cool!

Old men WARNING! WARNING!

I've received reports of armed attacks on shipments, there's not enough vaccine to go around and the underclasses are starting to get desperate. Your turn.

Desperate.

Desperate.

Desperate.

Desperate.

Desperate.

The sound they'll make rattling their cage will serve as a warning to the electronic OLD MEN.

Hmmmm. I hope you're not- GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE DENTON!

The others might not go as quietly. Intelligence indicates they're the problems behind Paris.
OLD MEN running the world. A NEW AGE!

We have other problems.

UNATCO?

Formed by the executive order after the terror strike on the statue. I have someone in place though. I'm more conserned about savage.

UNATCO?

Savage.

UNATCO?

No, Savage.

U-UNATCO?

Savage.

Our Biochem corpus is far in advance than theirs. Our ELECTRONIC OLD MEN and their.. flexibility has allowed us to make progress in the mythical city on the hills.

Hmmmn. We might not be able to contain the augmentation project?

Among other things. But I must admit somewhat disappointed in UNATCO.

....Quit screwing around.

Yes.

The secondary unit be online within six months. It's currently going under preperations it will be operational within six months. My people will report on it's progress within six months.

We had to endure much you and I but within the week. There will be OLD MEN running the world.

In 1997, John Romero of Ion Storm Dallas approached the producer of System Shock, Warren Spector, said "Make the game of your dreams. No limits" and the end result was the creation of Ion Storm Austin and their first game; Deus Ex.

Deus Ex is a First-Person Shooter/Role Playing Game with a heavy emphasis on stealth and thinking carefully about your surroundings. The game provides you, from start to finish, with a number of ways to solve every single problem put in front of you. The level design is open ended enough for any method of completion.

The game is inspired by Looking Glass Studio's System Shock and Thief and as a result, the freedom you have to approach and complete your objectives is simply staggering. You are given a huge world to explore, some tools you might want to use to complete your objectives and let loose upon your environment. Careful exploration is needed to uncover all of the hidden gadgets, secret tunnels and small story elements.

The only time you will ever receive a Game Over is if you die. There are no penalties for doing things your way and the game dynamically changes as you play. People in the game may think differently of you if you don't do what they expect of you and may effect certain things as you progress through the story.

Speaking of Story, the story of Deus Ex is one of a heavily political and conspiratorial nature. You play as JC Denton, an agent on his first day with the UNATCO, an organization that deals with the growing rise of foreign and domestic terrorism in the early twentieth century. It does not take long however for JC to discover that he is merely a pawn in a huge political game that leans far beyond his own understanding.

He will have to travel far and wide to gather the help he needs from unsuspecting allies. Hong Kong, Paris, New York City and various US locations will be visited, all of which have a fitting Tech-noir feel and stellar music to match. One listen of the music for Hong Kong and you'll never forget it.

Being an Role-Playing Game as well as a shooter, Deus Ex allows you to customize your character to your preference. The game features a skill system that will allow you to improve JC in a number of fields. Like big guns? Master the Heavy Weapons skill and go in with the GEP Gun blowing people and locked doors to bits. Want to silently infiltrate every location with skill and precision? Master Computers and Lockpicking to open doors, hack security machines, ATM machines for money (if you don't find any bank account details lying around) and read e-mails for clues about the environment you're in.

Another notable part of Deus Ex are its unforgettable characters. Every major character in the game has a well rounded personality with their own expectations of you. What you do in the world or tell them can affect how they treat you which might be crucial in your immediate future.

There are boss battles in the game too but some may be avoided entirely by learning information from other characters. If you do walk into a boss fight, you even have the choice of running right out the door behind them and not bother engaging them at all! When was the last time a game let you do that? Things might even happen to that character later on if you don't fight them.

With all the above praise, Deus Ex is not without its small faults however. Some of the levels are huge and empty of detail, forcing long walks if you want to get anywhere specific in a short amount of time. The large empty levels also make the game feel a little devoid of life in some places. A lot of areas that look as if they should be full of people, are completely empty except for maybe two or three characters at once.

With every conspiracy theory under the sun under the microscope in Deus Ex, you must learn to question everything and trust no one. You may even find that things that this game was talking about in the Year 2000 are happening right now or have a very real possibility to happen at some point during our lifetimes; wealth and the increasing gap between the rich and the poor across the globe, omnipresent electronic surveillance, technical augmentations that can enhance the human race beyond what nature intended and much more.

It's a roller-coaster ride of a game that everyone simply has to play to experience at least once. Your favourite game was probably inspired by this piece of art so do yourself a favour, set next weekend aside and play this game already. You will never leave the house without your tin-foil hat again!
