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.

One of the most interesting games to be made in a long time. Though not the easiest game to play, nor the most practical. it did raise a bar for games like Fable and Black & White that would fallow in its footsteps. Choice is a hard thing to put into a game. For with each one you need to see how the player may react to each and plan for their move. But unlike chess this is a much more complicated process, and Deus EX pulls it off like few others games can.
