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.
Purely amazing. The story is what draws me in the most. It starts kinda meh, but after you get to Hell's Kitchen, you won't stop playing. The game play is good and there are various ways to approach it (stealth, going "gun ho", sniping, etc), and each has it's own advantages and disadvantages. My only complaint about the actual game play is that it takes a while to get used to. I don't know how many times I've reinstalled this game, but I know it's not nearly enough. 100% Recommend.
Also, I just want to say, here's to hoping Deus Ex Human Revolution is as good as Deus Ex was (and not like Deus Ex: Invisible War)
+ Epic B.S.O
+ Excellent plot
+ Perfect game-play
+ Non-linear game-play
+ 20+ hours of game-play
+ Every decision, every choice, have consequences
+ Mature and dynamic story-line
+ Hard-core Mode (Realistic difficulty)
+ In-depth character customization
+ Multi-solutions to EVERY mission
- This hardly have any cons...
This one is a classic to end all classics in the RPG/FPS field. It offers great writing, creative level design, and a massive variety of ways to play the game. Are you the sort to mow down everyone in your path, pick them off with a sniper rifle, subdue them non-lethally, or the sort who just ghosts by them? No matter what your style, you'll find the tools and the skills available to play it your way.
The only part that hasn't aged well is the combat, but that is easily overlooked by playing on the realistic setting.
A classic! Love this game and it is one of my all-time favorite games. Fantastic story and great gameplay. still holds to this day. I highly recommend playing Deus Ex if you haven't already. If you find the graphics too outdated, you can just download "the new vision" mod to give the game a more up to date graphical enchantment.
