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: 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: 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...
Excerpt: Things are never quite as they seem in Deus Ex: The Conspiracy, a faithful PlayStation 2 port of one of the most highly acclaimed PC games of 2000. Superficially, it resembles a washed-up first-person shooter. But it is, in fact, a very ambitious game that defies simple classification--there's nothing like it on the PlayStation 2, and there's not much like it on the PC, either.
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.
