Daily Radar
For every ounce of freedom programmers give gamers, they give themselves a pound of worry. And Deus Ex is a game that gives its players a ton of possibilities. Whether users want to whisper through the world as a shadowy figure or rumble through the streets as Satan's angry auditor, Deus Ex lets players choose the way they want to play. Almost every obstacle has multiple solutions, and each turn in the captivating story makes the game more absorbing. Some of the dialogue, however, is a little clunky, it gets very poor framerates through Direct3D, and some cynics might refer to the game as System Shock 2.5. But for a complete package of plot, style, depth and action, few games rival Deus Ex.

HonestGamers
Mould him well, because the world is against you. Trust is a rare commodity in Deus Ex, and within a world ripe with betrayal and conspiracy, you never know who will be next to turn their sights on you. Listen well to the advice of others but take note of the evidence viewed through your eyes as well as your ears. There are those that view J.C with undisguised interest, those that wish to recruit him or employ him as a puppet, and more still who’ll only be happy once they’ve put a bullet in his head. Watch an awe-inspiring story unfold around you, filled with a depth most games are scared to touch. But more than that, watch your ammo, watch your surroundings, and, most importantly, watch your back.

Stellar level design feeds into the game balance and most objectives can be completed in a variety of ways. Some levels play like well-crafted three-dimensional puzzles, providing tense moments, like deciding if it's easier to try to fight a squad of guards before they can raise the alarm or to use three lockpicks to get into an airduct and sneak past. You can even hack into the security system and use the automated turrets to take out the guards for you.

Quandary
Deus Ex sits firmly within my top five, and will always have a place on my hard drive. Near the end of the game, you have to choose a path that takes you to one of three possible endings. I've played two of them so far, and I'll probably revisit the game shortly to take on the third. The question still remains: is this game an action/adventure, an action/RPG, a 'sneaker', or something that is the sum of all these things? Who knows? Who cares? It is simply one of the best games ever made.

Just Games Retro
I really can't think of a reason not to recommend Deus Ex, unless conspiracies and sort-of-future settings aren't your things. Just as I am not impressed by or interested in Tolkien fantasy worlds, laws of probability suggest that there must be people out there who feel the same way about the kind of world this game provides. But if any of the hacking/sneaking/shooting stuff I talk about interests you, then you will want to sign up. It's probably the best cyberpunk game since System Shock or Shadowrun, and has a couple of killer plot twists and sylish action. I know I have intentionally not revealed much about the storyline, but it is there, it is twisted, and it is deep. If this sounds like your kind of game, it will be satisfying to the end.

Deus Ex is one of those games that comes along and shakes the industry. It's one of those benchmark titles that revolutionises the genre and shows off what developers can really do. Sorry if I've jumped straight to the summary, but it has to be said. The moment when you load up the first level, you know it's special.

Adrenaline Vault, The (AVault)
Deus Ex is a Latin term used to describe a person or thing that appears out of nowhere and unexpectedly resolves a great conflict. Pronounced Day-Us X, Ion Storm's third release takes place in a futuristic setting and is home to the most elaborately detailed world ever created for the home computer. Created by well known producer Warren Spector, famous for his involvement in titles such as System Shock, Wings of Glory and Thief, Deus Ex isn't like anything you've played before. While at first glance it strikes a similar pose to its creator's previous works, under its trench coat of many mysteries, Deus Ex introduces us to a world so rich and unique that comparing it to any other game would serve as unfair criticism.

In essence, while Ion Storm have not found perfection with Deus Ex, they have come about as close as anyone ever has with a first person game. Moody and atmospheric, compelling and addictive, this is first person gaming in grown-up form, and it truly is magnificent.

This is what truly makes this game in my mind. Never before have I felt such immersion into a game where I feel like everything is happening to me directly. This is an incredibly well done game, with a multitude of possibilities, and one of the greatest replay values I've ever witnessed in a game since at any time during the game you have to say to yourself, "I wonder what else could have happened back there." You've never experienced a game like this before.

RPGFan
The control is excellent, and since it's fully customizable it easily accommodates to any gamer. The only nitpick I had was the unbalanced difficulty near the end of the game; some of the areas just seemed too easy and then an explosion of difficult traps, puzzles or enemies was presented. Still, this doesn't make for much less of an experience, and I highly recommend Deus Ex. It's probably the best PC game of all time, besting even the mighty Half-Life.
96
Gamer's Pulse
If you couldn't tell by now, Deus Ex is a game so completely overrun with detail it's hard to imagine the game ever made it out. This is one of a very small list of games that have left me in awe afterwards, a small list previously held mostly by Looking Glass titles. While Ion Storm may have made a huge mistake with Daikatana, Deus Ex has given me enormous confidence in Ion Storm, especially their Austin division, and keeps me drooling as I wait for Anachronox. A game as rich in detail as Deus Ex is not one to be passed up by anyone.

RPGFan
I'll be honest - I've looked forward to Deus Ex for a long time. I've always enjoyed Warren Spector's games. This may be his best yet - and that's a truly incredible feat. I've played through Deus Ex twice already, using different augmentations, strategies, and skills. I'm sure I could play through a few more times and still discover new areas. There's a ton of stuff to do, from hacking ATMs to hacking up enemy troops. It's flexible - no two people are going to have exactly the same game. Deus Ex is just plain fun. The year's scarcely half over, but for now, this is definitely the best game I've played in 2000. Find some way to play it - you won't regret it.

Deus Ex è un classico del PC gaming moderno ed un titolo imperdibile per chiunque. La sua giocabilità mutevole, divertente, assecondante il giocatore, annuncia il trionfo di un titolo che unisce la classica impostazione sparatutto con quella da Gioco di Ruolo, con un tocco di classe di chiara (o sarebbe meglio dire oscura?) origine Stealth. Un titolo indimenticabile che cattura il giocatore, con la sua atmosfera ammaliante e la sua trama coinvolgente e piena di sorprese, proiettandolo in un mondo futuristico dal quale non si vorrebbe più uscire. Fatelo vostro senza alcun timore.

But precisely how good is it? To take its two polar extremes of influence: while it's not quite as good as Half-Life as a shooter or Thief as a sneaker, the (here comes that word again) freedom to try both makes it Half-Life's only real peer. After two years we've finally got a genuine battle for the title of number one PC game of all time. And hopefully it will sell millions. The bloke in the street my recall The X-Files and The Matrix and be satisfied. The pretentious poseurs will be rewarded with nods toward everything from the illuminati to the French situationalists. Clearly, Deus Ex has influences outside the world of games; it reaches higher and drags you with it.

Game Vortex
Deus Ex is a fine game. It has its flaws, yes, but they are far, far outweighed by the good bits. If you like intricate plots, Thief-style gaming, action gaming, RPGs . . . hell, if you like -gaming-, you owe it to yourself to play Deus Ex. It's an adventure from the master of hybrid adventures. It will pull you into its cyberpunk world and not let go until you get to the end -- and then you'll want to go back for more, to see what you missed. Truly a classic game. And if a few nagging problems could get fixed -- the A.I. weirdness, the graphical issues on certain cards -- Deus Ex would be as close to perfect as any game has ever been.

FiringSquad
If you liked the Thief games and the System Shock series, you'll love Deus Ex. If you haven't played any of those games, then slap yourself 4 times. Once your penance is complete, run out, pick up a copy of Deus Ex, and see what you've been missing.

IGN
To its credit, its brilliant design and elegant follow through make Deus Ex the best game I've played this year, and I think it's safe to say it's one of the most versatile first-person games ever. Those of you looking for a complex, unique experience will find it in Deus Ex. While I had a good idea that Deus Ex was going to be a winner way before I played it, the team at Ion Storm has gone above and beyond all the expectations I had for this game, and has made one of the most fulfilling single-player games I've played in years. I only hope we see this attention to detail and design in future games from Ion Storm as well as other developers.

Deus Ex är ett stort steg närmare realisationen av en interaktiv film. Det kommer förmodligen att dröja länge innan något liknande ens dyker upp vid horisonten. Istället får vi nöja oss med fler actionspel av det vanliga slaget. Jag tvivlar även på att Deus Ex kommer att bli en försäljningssuccé. Spelet tilltalar inte de som gillar vanliga "shooters", samtidigt som det kan skrämma bort alla andra på grund av att det liknar ett vanligt actionspel. Ett annat problem är att spelet inte får den uppmärksamhet det förtjänar. Deus Ex skulle behöva marknadsföras på samma sätt som Diablo II. Deus Ex är dock inte ett känt varumärke, men det borde det vara. I vilket fall som helst är det värt att titta närmare på, spela igenom många gånger och sedan rama in. Detta är redan en klassiker.

Deus Ex is een kunstwerkje geworden. Diepere gameplay en een dergelijke keuzevrijheid vind je in geen enkele andere game. The game is fucking brilliant!

ActionTrip
Deus Ex is a quality title, and you don't find those often on the market. It, of course, has its target group, mainly System Shock fans (of which I am one), and won't appeal to everyone. There are certain elements that the wider audience (Yeah, we're thinking of mass-market, dad-gamers -Ed) won't appreciate (sounds of the young married couple under Paul's window (JC's brother), or steal the gun of UNATCO HQ chief under his nose without him even flinching), but for a group of dedicated fans, Deus Ex is a treasure to behold.

PC Player (Germany)
Es ist mir ja fast peinlich, schon wieder eine so hohe Note vergeben zu müssen. Aber Deus Ex lässt mir kaum eine andere Wahl. Dafür ist der Spielablauf einfach zu durchdacht, die Atmosphäre zu gut und sind der Möglichkeiten zu viele. Zusätzlich zum Spielprinzip des bereits wegweisenden System Shock 2 kommen noch Elemente wie Interaktion mit Personen, eine noch ausgefeiltere Charakterentwicklung und eine unerreicht lebendige Spielwelt hinzu. Diablo 2 mag unser Spiel des Monats sein und wird sicher auch mehr Leute ansprechen. Den Charme der Einfachheit besitzt Deus Ex nicht. Aber dafür steckt so viel mehr in diesem System und ist das Spiel selbst so umfangreich, dass man vor Spector einfach nur noch in stiller Demut den Hut ziehen muß. Ich sollte mir alleine dafür endlich einen kaufen.

Gaming Age
When writing this review, I truly wanted to give the game a full-blown A; it whole-heartedly deserves it. It's unfortunate, then, that I cannot because of the shortcomings when it comes to the poor performance under Direct3D, and the, at times, questionable artificial intelligence. Even so, Deus Ex is an incredible PC title, and shouldn't be missed by anyone.

Deus Ex tarkoittaa "Jumalalta", eikä näin hyvä peli voi muualta tullakaan. Pelimoottorin toimittajankin nimi mainitaan joka kerran kun ruudulle tulee kerralla enemmän kamaa.

Just Adventure
Once a die-hard adventurer, I have spent this year developing an appreciation for other genres--most notably action and RPGs. While I am still not sold on the idea of wholesale mayhem, there is something about a first-person survival exercise that gets the adrenaline pumping in a way that doesn't happen with a game like Myst or Timelapse, something about sneaking past guards, breaking into computers, and hiding in the shadows that really adds intensity to the game experience.

Game Revolution
There is no denying that from a gameplay standpoint Deus Ex is utterly revolutionary. It's long, it's malleable, and it demands repeated playings with new approaches. It is, as a game, everything you could ask for... and it's absolutely a blast to play. But it is not, as an experience, as enthralling as it could have been. What it does well, it does better than anything else and what it doesn't do well it still does passably. This is likely to be the best first-person game you'll play all year. Go now, embrace the conspiracy...the eye in the pyramid is calling out... for you.

Deus Ex a marqué le genre du FPS-RPG, et pour cause, c'est un véritable bijou de gameplay alliant avec Brio FPS, RPG (évolution, interaction avec des PNJ), et parfois infiltration. Couplé à un level-design de folie, le gameplay prend une profondeur incomparable, parfait (ou presque), il sera au service d'un grand scénario et d'une ambiance cyberpunk très intéressante et immersive. Les thèmes et doublages de la bande-son rendent le soft encore plus immersif malgré des défauts de bruitage. C'est un plaisir immense de jouer, même avec les yeux qui saignent à cause des graphismes vraiment repoussants. Un jeu excellent, un "must-try" pour tout joueur qui apprécie le RPG et idéal pour découvrir le FPS-RPG.

Edge
The only discernible weaknesses in Deus Ex concerns the gradual degeneration of the plot into third-rate sci-fi nonsense and some appalling voice acting, which detract from the immersive experience, as do the increasingly large saving and loading times between areas. These are irritations a game this well designed deserves to be without, but they aren’t enough to spoil the enjoyment. Behind the plot lies a game structure and depth that stands out from everything that has gone before. Put simply, it’s the anti-Daikatana – a game that not only lives up to its hype, but often exceeds it.

GameZone
In spite of having this program consume a lot of hard drive space in the saving process, Deus Ex is compelling, great to look at, and a whole lot of fun to play. The options package gives the gamer solid control over the elements of the game and the storyline builds with each mission completed. This program is quite a lot of fun to play.

Deaf Gamers
The game is fully subtitled but sounds from alarms etc., are not shown visually which becomes tricky at certain points. Thankfully you can save anywhere so a cautious approach will help avoid the frustrations. Conversations and objectives can be recalled, in text, at any time which is a nice touch. It's also worth noting that this is the game of the year addition that comes complete with the multiplayer component. It's great value for the small sum of £4.99

Deussi on hyvä peli, ei siitä mihinkään pääse. Pikkuvikoja löytyy eikä vähiten grafiikan saralta, mutta pelin hyvät puolet kumoavat huonot kuitenkin kirkkaasti lopuksi. Pelattavuus on kohdallaan, juoni hyvin tehty ja ennenkaikkea pitkä. Pelattavaa riittää vaikka kuinka pitkälle, ja loppuratkaisun lähetessä jää toivomaan että olisi se voinut vielä vähän pidempään kestää. No, eiköhän tästä jatko-osa saada aikaan.

En résumé, Deus Ex est un jeu qui RENOUVELLE véritablement le Quake-Like. On ne parle pas ici de 2 ou 3 nouvelles options facultatives mais d'une multitude de façons de jouer qui sont vraiment réalisables. Si vous avez toujours voulu jouer et non détruire tout ce qui bouge, ne cherchez pas plus loin.

Gamekult
Génial. Deus Ex repousse les limites actuelles du jeu de rôles pour atteindre un niveau de liberté et d'interactivité jusque-là inespéré. Dans la lignée des System Shock, Ion Storm a su ajouter le côté subtil de Dark Project et l'action d'un Quake pour un mélange aussi détonnant que captivant, tout en réussissant à imposer un scénario et une interactivité dignes de grands jeux d'aventure. Deus Ex assure de nombreuses heures de bonheur grâce notamment aux multiples éventails d'actions possibles. A coup sûr, tous les fans de jeu de rôles cyberpunk seront comblés tout comme le néophyte qui appréciera la prise en main aisée.

Generalnie Deus Ex to jedna z lepszych gier, w jakie ostatnio grałem. Niesamowity cyberpunkowy klimat (oj, dawno już nie mieliśmy gry osadzonej w realiach niedalekiej przyszłości), doskonale skonstruowana fabuła, zaskakująca chyba każdego gracza swoimi niespodziewanymi zwrotami, wreszcie naprawdę niezła grafika i muzyka - to wszystko składa się na grę doskonałą. Niestety wołające o pomstę do nieba AI przeciwników obniża końcową ocenę.

Its graphical capabilities rarely hamper the gaming experience. The inventory, skill and augmentation systems are especially well implemented, storing all conversations, notes, mission goals and giving detailed item descriptions which when coupled with the simple training mission helps immeasurably to get sucked into the game. This potent mixture of l33t skills, an in-depth story, and excellent level design really does complete an excellent futuristic RPG. If you like games that really make you think, like Metal Gear Solid or even Commandos (be it from a different view point), then Deus Ex will definately be for you. A FPS attitude can be taken with this game but be prepared to miss out on the meandering story line, film noire atmosphere and die a lot!

Das neueste Werk von System Shock-Macher Warren Spector ist kein einfaches Spiel: Es lässt Ihnen völlige Handlungsfreiheit. Es macht Sie verantwortlich für die Konsequenzen Ihres Handelns. Es hat romanreife Charaktere, eine hochspannende Handlung und verfügt über eine bewährte Grafik-Engine. Vor allem aber stellt es Ihnen eine existenzielle Frage: Was würden Sie tun, wenn Sie niemandem auf der Welt mehr vertrauen könnten?

Deus Ex ist ein wahres Kleinod in der Flut mittelmäßiger Actiontitel. Mit Akribie und viel Liebe zum Detail entwarf das Team um Warren Spector eine erschreckend realistische Parallelwelt, die es dem Spieler leicht macht, stundenlang in ihr zu versinken. Wer über die nötige Hardware verfügt und anspruchsvolle Unterhaltung zu schätzen weiß, liegt beim Kauf dieses außergewöhnlichen Programms goldrichtig.

Was ich als Agent Denton erlebt habe, kommt mir fast wie ein echter Abstecher in eine nahe Zukunft vor. Langzeit-Auswirkungen auf andere Spiele erwarte ich vor allem vom Level-Aufbau. Derart clever konstruierte Umgebungen wünsche ich mir viel öfter. Da kann ich mich nach meinen Vorstellungen voran arbeiten, selbst die Initiative ergreifen und bestimmen, welchen Weg ich nehme. Ein bisschen mehr schmückendes Grafik- Beiwerk mit schöneren Lichteffekten und hübscheren Texturen könnte das Programm aber schon vertragen. Klar, das stete Grau-in-Grau ist Absicht und soll realistisch wirken – mir ist es langfristig zu trist. Davon und von ein paar kleineren Mankos mal abgesehen, legt Warren Spector aber ein fulminantes Werk vor, das die Messlatte für intelligente Actionspiele erneut ein gutes Stückchen höher legt. Wer 3D-Action mit Rollenspiel-Einschlag oder ungewöhnliche Storys mag, kommt um Deus Ex nicht herum.

GameSpy
Most people equate RPGs with the fantasy genre, but Deus Ex successfully twists the genre and brings RPG players a brand new playing experience. While it suffers from a few technical issues, what you shell out for the game is money well spent. You'll come away from Deus Ex with the sense that you could actually be a real anti-terrorist agent in UNATCO. Well, maybe. I wouldn't advise quitting your day job anytime soon - for now, stick with Deus Ex.

Ever since the demise of our beloved Looking Glass Studios, fans of the stealthy FPS games such as the Thief series and the System Shock type RPG/FPS hybrids speculated about the death of their favorite type of game, where stealth and strategy weighed more than sheer firepower.

Deus Ex hat mich von Anfang an fasziniert. Kein anderes Spiel vermittelt ein solches „mittendrin-Gefühl", wie Deus Ex. Warren Spector hat wirklich eine Meisterleistung abgeliefert. Nur die etwas triste, aber noch lang nicht schlechte Grafik sorgt doch für eine etwas arg düstere Stimmung. Was mich wirklich stört, ist das Fehlen einer kompletten Lokalisation. Warum Eidos darauf verzichtet hat, ist mir wirklich schleierhaft.

Absolute Games (AG.ru)
System Shock 2, на который безумно похож Deus Ex, является эталоном соответствия в данном, весьма специфичном жанре. Deus Ex превзошел его по степени свободы прохождения благодаря элементам воровского мастерства из Thief, среди которых числится бесшумное оружие, меткая стрельба в голову с моментальным летальным исходом, осторожные шаги вместо повсеместного бега и предательские удары сзади. Такое дополнение к исходному, стильному fps с хорошим сюжетом оказалось весьма уместным. Пусть в результате качество исполнения обоих элементов немного не дотягивает до своих славных родителей, однако сочетание, безусловно, удачное, а уровни отменно хороши, чуть менее красивы, но задорно сложны и многогранны. Ion Storm реабилитируется.

Deus Ex is yet another game to follow the trend of First Person Shooters (FPS) trying to set itself apart by bringing a new version of realism to the gaming world. You play JC Denton, the prodigy of a special operations project to add technological breakthroughs to human subjects. You are one of two existing subjects, the other is your brother Paul. (Why is it in today's games all heroes have stupid names? Would you be scared of a Duke? a JC? Crap, if the guy was called Meathook or Abattoir – that would be scary.) The game takes place in the United States as a new "super virus" is devastating the human population . . . blah-blah . . . stop terrorists . . . fight against all odds . . . yada yada yada.

Deus Ex has made quite a stir before and after it was released. People were mega-enthousiastic about this game so I decided to play it. The game is based on the Unreal Tournament engine, and after the mistake of Ion Storm with Daikatana, everyone was hoping that Deus Ex would make it all up.

If you are a fan of first person shooters and are looking for something to keep you occupied, this one may a good hoice for you. I want to be clear (not to mention fair) here; Deus Ex is a very good first person shooter, but that is all it really is. If you are looking for revolutionary, then move past this one. However if it's an FPS you want, and a good one at that, give this one a shot.

Hvis du skal litt tilbake til røttene av spill som satt nye grenser for hva du sitter å spiller til vanlig, som du tar som selvfølge idag, så er nok Deus Ex verdt å ta seg gjennom. Hvis det hadde vært et fag på skolen om spillhistorie, er jeg sikker på at noen timer i semesteret ble viet til Deus Ex.

The game is not designed for Windows 2000, but it will run. It froze up a couple times, but it didn't totally lock my system up, gotta love Win2K. There is a patch out. Multiplayer is available with the latest patch (34MB). There are a lot of neat maps available for this game. I would highly recommend this game but only for a mature audience.

Computer Gaming World (CGW)
Despite all that, I still loved this game. To me. it’s like The Matrix: it pulls together many disparate elements that, on their own, are mediocre, but they manage to add up to something better. I was able to look past the choppy performance, the mental lapses of the Al, and some of the goofy gameworld logic and immerse myself completely. Yes, it’s a game featuring lightsabers, rogue Al, crates, muscular Germans, and other clichés, but it pulls them together into a great package. It’s the kind of game that inspires players to tell stones about how they accomplish certain missions. So while I love the game and see it as Game Of The Year material, I can’t, in good conscience, give it the Almighty Score. It has deep flaws that sometimes frustrated me. as they detracted from its ambitious design. I realize that not everyone will be as tolerant as I am about its flaws. Nevertheless, DEUS EX is ultimately a game-well-done, and if you look past its flaws, it’s a line ride.
