Okay so it sounds cheesy and overblown but it really is. Deus Ex upon release was a game I didn't know anything about but after playing a demo I was hooked. The blend of First person shooter and RPG is at a perfect balance.
For those that don't know much about the game you play as JC Denton a Nano augmented special agent (or a cyborg if you want the short version) You're part of a UN sanctioned anti terrorist group (UNATCO) and are sent into a dystopian world of intrigue and conspiracy.
The main aspect of this game for me is its atmosphere its oppressive and harsh and makes you feel like the world is really going to hell, that coupled with a twisting plot and interesting support charatcers makes for a very good story.
The graphics are rather dated by todays standard but still aren't hideous to look at.
The gameplay is a real gem, players customize JC using Skills which upgrade his ability with weapons/lockpicks/medkits etc and also acquire augmentations which give him access to special abilities such as bullet resistant skin, increased speed and even a remote spy drone used for scouting.
For Newcomers the difficulty can seem rather harsh but tis something you adapt to once you realise you have to be somewhat subtle and you can't run and gun the entire game like its the next Quake or Halo title.
There's always more than one way around a problem. Depending on what you specialize in you can take numerous approaches to any given situation to reach your objective.
There's really not much else to say except that if you haven't played this game get it while you can at a reasonable price.
Still my most favourite game after all these years and gets replayed even now I give it a solid 10/10 which is very high and rare praise from me
