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. No one believes they exist. No one but you.
Play this game, install any other wannabe "open world, lots-a-freedom" RPG game, and prepare to face-palm.
Why? Because immediately after you will think "How come back in 2000, a game was 10 times better than the **** they pull out of their ***** now?"
And after that, re-install this game later on, rinse and repeat. Unending fun, UNENDING!
the foundation of nearly every rpg out there this is one of the best games and wil always be one of the best great story great gameplay graphics wel you get used to it unless you install new vision and install hdtp and that brings me to the last point the deusex modding community is going strong so even when you completed the game there wil be enough mods to entertain you further
It was hailed as the Game of the Year in 2000 and with it's port to Playstation 2, Deus Ex gives a refreshing twist to the first person shooter and combines many a role playing game element, not to meant an evolving and engrossing storyline to boot. As you start the game you play an agent for a company called UNATCO with the codename JC Denton, a nano augmented special covert operative agent. UNATCO (United Nations Anti-Terrorist Coalition) well does just what it says on the tin, an anti terrorist group in a world where the mysterious ''Grey Death'' is wiping out all those not rich enough or without the right connections to obtain it's antidote. One main selling point and I'm sure one the developers Ion Storm like mentioning is the way that the game is played and how the individual player reacts to certain situations makes the storyline unfold in different ways, as well as changing the eventual ending of the game. While these situations don't have a huge affect on how the game unfolds, it's a great touch to the gameplay, especially such things as JC walking into the ladies bathroom at UNATCO HQ. Ok so it's not an amazing storyline moving example, but it's funny to get told off by your boss for doing so. The graphics obviously depend on the performance of your PC, but generally are acceptable. It's an area that could have been improved, though bound to be at the expense of the system requirements. The movements, especially on some face animations can be jerky but it's easily overlooked. Enemy AI is pretty good too, with the usual ducking of fire, and if you shoot them enough but don't kill them they'll run away to the nearest alarm and send for more troops before high tailing it outta there. Pending you giving them a good ol' pistol shot in the back of the head of course. Deus Ex is a clever little game with a great involving storyline that is gradually revealed through the gameplay. Lots of mystery, back stabbing, twisting plots make this a great FPS. Worth buying!
Well, I should be rating this game a 9 because it does have one issue: the AI can be pretty bad at times. However, this one issue alone cannot bring this game down to a 9, and even if the issue was extremely frustrating, it would not stop me from rating this a 10/10.
Why? Because the gameplay is absolutely fantastic. It is so diverse with the kind of things you can do, the way you approach problematic situations, and various other things. The absolute reason why this game is a 10/10 however, is the storyline. The storyline is incredible, and when you consider the things you can do in the game, along with the storyline, you have not one, but so many experiences, how you handle a situation, which path you take, what skills you utilize the most. I bought this game for only £1.99 on Steam, this game, along with Garry's Mod which I only bought for £1.49 are the best deals I ever encountered on Steam, and for those of you reading this, I strongly recommend you buy these games if you haven't already. Whether you purchase it on sale or for the full price, I can guarantee anybody that the purchase is worth it.
