Deus Ex - Game of the Year Edition review

Posted : 3 years, 1 month ago on 7 July 2011 01:16

Deus Ex told a fascinating story and featured enough quasi-unique elements to make it a truly fantastic game.

The gameplay here was all about choice. Depending on how you outfit your character you could approach the same situation in a myriad of different ways. You could hack your way in, use stealth tactics to get the drop on your enemies or (this was often the most difficult approach) go in with guns blazing. That sense of choice extends to the various augmentations you can install in your character.

The writing and usage of familiar environments (like the Statue of Liberty) really made this game stand out. It's one of the best futuristic shooters out there.

The best game ever made?

Easily. DX utilizes the UT engine, but takes out the monotonous gameplay and actually adds some sort of plot! And what a plot that is - one of the most immersive and captivating plots of any game I've ever played. If games could be compared to books, this would be an encyclopaedia compared to the ten a penny Dr Seuss FPSs that seem to come out these days. I still complete it at least once a year and it still impresses me to this day. It's such a fun game. I think it's untouchable.

It's such an atmospheric and immersing game, with a solid storyline that puts the player in control of his own destiny. Built around one of the most legendary protagonists in gaming history, you are JC Denton, a nano augmented super agent who doesn't take long to realise that he's fighting for the wrong side. With amazing locations and hundreds of different character interactions, this is one of the most satisfying games around. If only someone reprogrammed it for the Source engine!
