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 Warfor 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 forHuman Revolution!
Deus Ex was probably the greatest first person shooter I have ever played (and that includes Fallout 3). It stuck to the norms of its genre while simultaneously creating the trend that would be followed by many games in the future. It was the forerunner of the amazing variety of FPSs we have today. The third game in the series, Deus Ex: Human Revolution will cover the renaissance of transhuman revolution humanity’s first foray into cybernetics. The story is what is important and the teaser trailer gives away practically nothing.
For those who do not know anything about these games, I’d recommend Deus Ex, considering the fact that it is one of the greatest games of all time. Play it, soak in the story, and traverse a world full of gritty references, conspiracies and unmatched gameplay. I’d go as for to comment on the fact that many of today’s choice-based and storyline-focused FPSs have taken an idea from Deus Ex in one form or another. For its time, this game was unimaginably complex and full of rich characters and interactions. Its sequel, Deus Ex: Invisible War tried to continue the setting of the Deus Ex, but did not exceed its predecessor’s success. However, Invisible War has far more branching points than the previous game and has a non-linear gameplay that is still rich and fulfilling to play.
The tactical shooter Hitman: Codename 47 spawned a huge fan following and a movie to boot. Though the movie was nothing special, the series is. Playing as a contract killer, gamers are to murder a variety of people with realistic weapons and settings. With enough reality in it to make anyone know a little bit of the enigmatic world of assassins akin to those in the James Bond universe, the Hitman series is a great gift for those who like spy thrillers and conspiracies of secret organizations that send trained assassins to change the course of world history. Hitman: Silent Assassin and Hitman: Blood Money take the gameplay forward as you guide Codename 47 around the world in a variety of missions.
