Excerpt: Welcome to a world overwatched by a totalitarian government that no longer tries to hide its ubiquitous reach into all avenues of civilised life. Bordered by never-ending skyscrapers that cloud the world in a sunlight-choked gloom, the rich get richer while the poor etch out a miserable existence between power-mad conglomerates and broken politicians.
Excerpt: Not every launch title has to be a ‘killer app.’ Namco realizes this, and is betting that people who liked past Ridge Racer games simply want more of the drifting they’ve always appreciated. If that sounds right, Ridge Racer 6 is your game. If it doesn’t, well, there’s always Project Gotham Racing 3 The Ridge Racer series has never really been about simulation. Ridge Racer 6 embraces that heritage. You won’t find tedious pit stops or car tuning.
Excerpt: Deus Ex Machina, God-machine, UNATCO, FEMA, One-world Government – what does this all mean? Enter Deus Ex, a trippy, cyber-punk adventure game that will pit you in the very eye of the hurricane. When Deus Ex was first released for the PC back in 2000, it amassed a huge cult following the likes of which are comparable only to Hideo Kojima’s tirade on the console market.
Excerpt: I once visited a mental institution a few years ago for an assignment. My memory of it is as vivid as the walls there were white. I asked if I had the liberty to look around and observe the patients during their recreation time. I was in the juvenile section, so there were lots of kids. But there was this one guy my age, whom Ill call "Steve" for privacy purposes, and he had scars on his wrists. He had a nice complexion and was quite fit.
Conclusion: Personally, I was never impressed and here is why; I liken Deus Ex to the foreign film that the critics love, but has the flavor of a rice cake. It’s very apparent why the game won over 40 Game of the Year awards. Like I said above there isn’t much to complain about as far as storyline or gameplay flaws, but I believe Deus Ex is too much like another Eidos Interactive title, Thief and not enough like Halo or Half-Life .
Excerpt: One of the best games ever created finally makes its way to the PS2 a little worse for the wear, but still every bit as potent in theme as the PC version that spawned it. It's no secret that I love Deus Ex. The game hit me in my life at a time that was pretty much as high a point as I can remember, and it managed to hook me like no other PC game -- past, present and likely future - thanks to an incredible story and gameplay that switched and melded genres just when you...
Summary: If you haven't played the original PC version of Deus Ex then you should have a look at this game. Unfortunately the game looks a little dated today, and includes a lot more load points then the PC original.
Excerpt: Historien bygger på vår personlighet, "JC Denton". Han har nylig begynt å jobbe for "unatco" (United Nations Anti Terrorist Coalition). Et farlig virus (Gray Death) har begynt å herje rundt omkring på jorda. "Denton" er en kløktig soldat som skal bekjempe terrorisme. En last med medisinen Ambrosia er blitt kapret på vei til Liberty Island utenfor New York. Terroristorganisasjonen som står bak kaller seg "NSF" (National Secessionist Force). "JC Denton" blir satt på saken.
Conclusion: Angesichts der technisch weit überlegenden Konkurrenz wird es " Deus Ex " nicht gerade leicht haben, sich auf der PS2 zu etablieren. Wer sich aber dennoch auf dieses Ego-Abenteuer einlässt und die technischen Schwächen in Kauf nimmt, der wird von diesem Spiel hineingesaugt. Die Story hat auch nach zwei Jahren nichts von Ihrer Attraktivität eingebüßt.
Pros: Charakter-Entwicklung, Exzellente Spielbarkeit, Lebendige Spielwelt, Umsetzung eines PC-Klassikers
Cons: Schwache K.I., Steuerung teilweise kompliziert, Technisch nicht überzeugend
