Product Description

Product Description

This game will run windows XP and was highly acclaimed on its debut.

Amazon.co.uk Review

Developers Ion Storm owed us something pretty special and futuristic shoot, spy and stalk-'em-up Deus Ex more than makes up for the disappointment of Daikatana. Deus Ex is set in a nearby future where a deadly virus ravages the world's populace, terrorists are bent on exposing corrupt governments and conspiratorial elites are ready to wade in and wreak havoc. You play a techno-enhanced agent tasked with getting to the bottom of it all without cashing in your chips.

Immediately noticeable is the attention to detail; there's no end of objects and characters to interact with--too much, were it not for the consequences that arise from almost every interaction. Such random actions as killing a guard or "accidentally" walking into the ladies' toilets can significantly affect mission outcomes. The best game will result from stealthy inch-by-inch exploration and you'll be glad you did.

Considering that Deus Ex has gameplay in bucketloads, it could look like Commander Keen and get away with it. Thankfully though, the Unreal engine does a more than passable job of rendering some beautiful locations and although models may look a little blocky compared to games using more sophisticated engines, the minor flaws melt away as the game gets going.

By no means a perfect title, Deus Ex, as its name implies, has come from nowhere and lifted the FPS role-playing adventure out of its hybrid quagmire of genres. With a richly detailed story and great visuals, it boasts a seamless, technically accomplished and truly engrossing game world for those wanting to flex so much more than just their trigger fingers. --Tae Mawson

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing is as it seems... 9 Sept. 2005
First person shooter? RPG? Strategy game? Life sim? Well, Deus Ex is all of these, and more. Sttubornly refusing to inhabit one particular genre, this masterpiece of a game transcends the boundaries of traditional gaming, moulding itself to fit the preferences and habits of the player. If you want to treat it as an FPS, no problem. As a stealth game, it works even better. As a combination of the two, the game excels. Pick and mix different 'skills' and 'augmentations' to either specialise in key areas - such as sniping, demolitions, or computer hacking - or create an all-rounded character, with no real specialty, but no real weakness either.
Following the exploits of a United Nations counter-terrorism operative, who graudally discovers nothing is as it seems, the game is clever in its intricacies and detail - you can basically do anything you want, whether this includes hacking an ATM machine, reading a newspaper, or flushing a toilet. This game is distinctive, and is still one of the best to have ever been made. Unlike the countless other clones of games, this actually makes the player think and engage with the gaming envrionment and atmosphere. Newspapers, magazines, television programmes all lend realism to the world and allow an insight into the fascinating (though not strictly necessary) background to the game. Play it was you want to play it, choose the path you want to take, as you are lead through a twisting maze of conspiracies, sub-plots, corruption and political intrigue to uncover the truth, or at least what purports to be the truth.
Everything is here, from the supposed Roswell cover-up to genetic engineering, and it all looks pretty good, even now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Half-Life 25 Jun. 2003
Honest! I mean it!
If you read through all the media hype, you always hear about Half-Life, the incredible first-person shooter (FPS) that took the world by storm. Thing is, it's all scripted. Sure, your skill and tactics will determine how easily you get through but in the end it's just a pre-set walk through the game. Little did anyone realise that, while Jon Romero's team Ion Storm was working on the Ill-fated and horribly delayed game Daikatana, this instant classic was waiting in the shadows.
Deus Ex is ground-breaking. Earlier games had been just shooters, RPGs or sneak 'em ups (as seen in the brilliant Thief games). Deus Ex was the first to combine the lot. A blend of roleplay, with interaction with the people you meet changing the path of the story; of stealth, with the option of walking through darkened corridors or streets, or passing by automated defences and monitors; of action, with serious firefights and hand-to hand combat; and of character development, where you may gain points and money as the game goes along, and spend them on improving skills, implanting nano-augmentations or improving your personalised arsenal of weapons. Deus ex means CHOICE. Lots of it. How you complete the game is entirely a matter of choice, as is its ending.
The graphics are looking old now, but this is still a decent game, worthy of the five stars I have given it. So put aside a weekend or two, close those blinds, and be JC Denton for a while ... the future is what you make of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Game Ever? (No, really this time!) 3 July 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
At the time of writing, 32/32 previous reviewers gave this game 5/5 Stars. And with good reason. In my opinion, and the opinion of many, Deus Ex could very well be the greatest game of all time.

Set in a dystopian future where terrorism runs rampant, corporations vie for control and a deadly plague engulfs the world, the player assumes the role of JC Denton, an augmented agent of UNATCO (United Nations Anti-Terrorist Coalition), assigned with the task of monitoring the actions of the NSF, an organisation who believe they're fighting the second American Revolution. But that's not all. Your brother Paul, also a UNATCO agent, is starting to act strangely, and the older agents are getting jealous of your new technology. If you don't know who to trust so far, wait until you play the game...

First person shooter. RPG. Adventure. All this and more, rolled into one. Want to blast your way past enemies? Go for it. Plenty of weapons available as the game progresses - Shotguns, Assault Rifles, Rocket Launchers, Lasers, even a Lightsaber! (well...it's called the "Dragon's Tooth" but it does the same thing). How about sneaking? You can do that too - use lockpicks and mulitools to open doors and disable keypads to avoid confrontation, or give your enemies a nap with a tranquilliser dart (or a zap with an electric prod). Alternatively, just stay low and quietly craw past your enemy. Apart from a couple of necessary evils (literally, about two characters), it is actually possible to complete the game without killing ANYONE. JC can also hack surveillance camera terminals, and even "persuade" an ATM to give him some cash.

Like many RPG games, you earn experience points by completing certain tasks, and you use these points to upgrade your skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawless. 25 Aug. 2004
By Chef!
This is easily one of my all time top 5 favourite games for one simple reason; there's absolutely nothing wrong with it. From the interface to the storyline, the characters to the level design, this is about as close to gaming perfection you can get (alongwith System Shock 2 as well). Today the graphics may be looking slightly dated compared to the likes of Doom 3, but they still ain't bad by any stretch of the imagination.
Deus Ex puts you in control of the character JC Denton, an anti-terrorist agent (with bionic upgrades which make you hard as nails) working for government agency UNATCO, some time in the not too distant future. With the outbreak of a genetically engineered plague, to which the antidote is given out in limited quantities by the authorities, precious vaccine supplies are stolen by terrorist groups and the second game mission sees you reclaiming the stuff. However, things aren't quite what they seem, and you find yourself dragged into a conspiracy which involves terrorists, the US government, Area 51, your brother, yourself and many others. Throughout the course of the game JC ends up in a variety of well thought out areas, such as Hong Kong, New York and Paris which inlude bars, clubs, high rise flats etc. I don't want to give away too much of the storyline as it's what really makes the game stand out above everything else, but imagine being the protaganist in a story which is a cross between those of Minority Report, Half-Life, every Jack Ryan film made and the TV show 24. Once it starts to unfold, it doesn't let you leave the screen for hours!
The game play is very much like System Shock 2.
