June 22nd marks the 10th anniversary of the smashingly awesome FPS-RPG-stealth hybrid Deus Ex. Built on the basis of real-world conspiracy theories, you take on the role of government agent J.C. Denton as he sent on riskier and riskier missions. Soon he unravels a far reaching conspiracy that threatens the existence and world and trust me when I say that this game has very little clichÃ©s on the way.
Every mission in Deus Ex has more than one way of going about and for a game released in 2000, this is a big achievement. You could either go gung ho towards your objective, killing anyone and everyone standing in your way, or you could depend on some stealth and sneak through to your objective, or use a backdoor or an alternate route to reach the goal. Add to it nanotech augmentations that make J.C. more than human, and you have the seamless blend of Role-Playing powers and First Person immersion.
But enough of the game true fans will forever remain true fans of this cult classic. Steam is offering both the original Deus Ex and the slightly flawed sequel Deus Ex: Invisible War for a 75% discount! This means that both games are up for a total of $4.98. Go buy this classic this instant and prepare yourself for Human Revolution!
