Summary: The game was sent to me promptly but without a seal covering the case, which means someone at some point has man-handled the disc and sure enough I checked the bottom of the disc and found that it is covered in light buff marks. I may sound fussy but if I pay for something brand new then I want it brand new and in mint condition.
Excerpt: *** This is a review specific to the PS2 port of the game, and its differences to the PC/Mac OS version. For a full review of the PC edition, see this link; http://www.ciao.co.uk/Deus_Ex_PC__Review_5852251 A outstandingly well-conceived cyberpunk Role playing First person shooter, Deus Ex (2000) has really impressed gamers worldwide. Nonetheless, it strongly shows its limitations on this platform. This game is really only worth buying for the PC.
Pros: Its still a great game, improved polygons, addition of pre - rendered cutscenes . RPG elements remai
Cons: cut down levels, cut down speech, bad lighting, jerky, awkward, barely playable on the PS2 .
Summary: This is an icon game, one that you just have to try to see what all the fuss is about. I'm sorry I did. Essentially a stealth game, the control system is rubbish. Unnecessarily cumbersome and complicated. Add in dull, low quality graphics and a good bit of aimless wandering and sneaking and suddenly the game becomes legendary? I simply did not get the experience I was hoping for. A real let down.
Summary: I really had big expectations for this game seeing how a mate of mine raved on the PC version. However after being spoiled on Half-Life and Max Payne I have to say that for me this game was not all it was cracked up to be. Biggest problem - realism. Enemies are oblivious to long distant shots and there's no 'oomph' factor when weapons are being used (not to mention some terrible sound effects).
