Deus Ex is just one of those games you need to learn to like. When first tried to play this, I really didn't like the game because I thought it was too cheap and confusing. But after a few more tries the game finally clicked and then I started liking, and once you learn how to like this game, trust me it's probably one of the best games you have ever played after that. What I think makes it heard for people to like it at first is that the game is not what it looks like. To most people it looks like a FPS shooter(which to an extent it is, but I'll get to more about that later), therefore people play the game like it's an FPS(Guns Blazing) and expect everything else to work. That's where you then realize what it really is. Deus Ex is actually a First Person RPG. To begin with, Exploration is very important in this game, and I'd say you have to do it in order to get info to open doors or get more important information to the story, plus you get points from exploring. Also while Deus Ex is in First Person and seems like a FPS Shooter, it's not that really. To begin with going in Guns Blazing will alert guards, in which they can lock a door, sound an alarm to atract more guards, and can use explosives. Therefore Stealth gameplay is much better suited for this game, as your chances of survival and completing your objective is more possible. Also Deus Ex's gunplay is kinda bad, therefore even if you do go guns blazing, the gunplay doesn't work well with you. Now another important thing is that you really need to listen to what NPC's say, as it is actually important to the story(in a another more important way which I won't spoil) and plus they might say some important tactics which can help. One last thing is that the story is affected by what choices you make, for example you can actually choose to kill a certain character if you want, which significantly changes the story. And before I go, the Story for this game is very intersting. It brings up many philshoical and poltical points about corruption, what is right, and more.
Overall I'm more than gald to recommend this game, but just remember this game has a steep learning curve.
