About Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition

About this game

Developed by Ion Storm and published by Square Enix.

Taking part in 2052, take control of JC Denton in a dangerous imagining of our future. Terrorists run amok, killing thousands of civilians whilst drugs, disease, and pollution wipe out the rest. A lethal epidemic known as the Grey Death surges the land with only a synthetic vaccine to nullify the effects — Ambrosia. Take control of the protagonist and set on numerous quests to recover stolen Ambrosia and uncover conspiracies like never before!

Action-Roleplaying Title

Take control of JC Denton in a game from the year 2000! Engage in numerous RPG elements and experience the very first title in the phenomenal Deus Ex franchise!

Realistic Locations

Each area is built from blueprints of real areas (with anticipated technological advancements from the time) to bring as much realism as possible to the game. 

Fight A More Human Enemy — Humanity

The short stock of Ambrosia to stop the Grey Death has caused riots of the most human enemy you'll find — civilians. Each decision you make affects other NPCs living in the world rather than monsters you can be apathetic towards.

Rich RPG Elements

Engage in the signature Deus Ex RPG, allowing you to choose your skills, augmentations, weapons, and even which items you take into situations. As you'll be able to solve the same problem in different ways, each playthrough can differ tremendously!

A Realistic Storyline

Built on real-life conspiracy theories, you'll face numerous things you've heard of before — the Illuminati, Area 51, and much more — to keep the game as realistic as possible. Face the beliefs of others!

"What a shame" we never got more games like this.

This is where gaming peaked. At the threshold of the new millennium. Don't let its old graphics put you off! I honestly don't even mind the low-poly models or the 16-bit textures. I believe that dystopic worlds somehow work better in an outdated look. It unconsciously pushes you to use your fantasy and imagine the finer details. Immersion! I admit. I was way too young to actually understand what I was playing at the time in 2000. And I only managed to fully appreciate it decades later. This was the game that planted the seed of my love for cyberpunk. Even though I had no idea what was going on, I was drawn to Deus Ex. The story is captivating, full of mystery and conspiracies and with the right amount of edgy. You have the classic Matrix trenchcoats, modern-day philosopher quotes, snobby artistic references, and questionable voice acting. But hey, I love my things imperfect. And it's funny, a great and much-needed contrast to the overly serious world. Where the old Deus Ex is still ahead even today, is the way you can approach your missions. The game doesn't carry you on its back using a markers like you're an idiot, it doesn't suffocate with you hints. Instead, you can stop for a while and just think: "What if I try to do this?" And Jesus Christ, the game is actually ready for alternative solutions and plays out a realistic scenario based on your decisions. Some of them have serious implications on future missions. Why haven't we seen more of this out-of-the-box readiness in more games since then? It should be a staple of this industry! Kingdom Come: Deliverance got close to something like that, but Deus Ex still does it the best. Deus Ex's biggest pain nowadays is the gunplay. It's just not up to today's standards and gun accuracy relies heavily on the RPG system. It can get a little frustrating, especially early in the game before you can level up your skills a bit. And before you get augmented. But shooting is not why you should play Deus Ex. You play it for the experience, great world-building, fantastic atmosphere and heavy themes that feel pretty relevant in 2021. You play it to see where games should have gone, but ultimately never have. Either way, Deus Ex is a game that leaves a lasting impression on everyone who gives it a chance.

Still worth a shot

If you temper your expectations and don't expect an amazing FPS, it is enjoyable. It's a far better story and RPG than an action game. You play it for the deadpan one-liners, literary references, and meme material. Deus Ex didn't really age well when it comes to AI or shooting mechanics, and to risk enraging fans, was terrible even by 2000s standards. Oddly, it's one of those games that tries to be ultra immersive by having an RPG stat system. However, it implements it so badly that it feels very gamey instead, especially as applied to weapons. Low-level stats render C-4 explosives and rockets into firecrackers, and the 9mm pistol is turned into a BB gun from Temu. Even after hours of adjusting for different variables, I still haven't reliably figured out how many blows it takes to knock out a guard or where is most effective. Still an interesting game though, and has a charm the other Deus Exs sorely lack.

I have played deus ex mankind divided in the past and really enjoyed it. This game gives a lot of background to later events. I'd recommend GMDX mod while playing this game to make it more user friendly. Fantastic so far

A classic. Kinda rough on newer machines since it is a very old game. I'm enjoying it.

Nostalgic, slick and fun. Although setup can be finnicky and I find the maps are too dark, I have to have my flashlight on the whole time
