The rotting horse has been beaten to a pulp with what has already been said, written, and discussed about this game with regards to its oft-touted status as the metaphorical pick axe of truly groundbreaking work. It has the kind of prestige that allows it to appear on "greatest ever" lists with a consistency that would make any old man suffering from constipation jealous. This original iteration of Deus Ex is the stuff of industry legend, and after playing it nearly all the way through, it doesn't take me wearing this thick pair of glasses to see why.
Today, the game manages to mix choice, action, RPG elements, and grand storytelling together in a way that still feels fresh, avoiding the Seinfeld effect masterfully. Many games since its inception have tried to emulate it, but there is something natural about the way the game plays that simply feels right, and it easily held my attention for hours on end, despite clunky controls and ugly graphics. Your most minute choices in the game actually matter, and the world within the game adjusts to how you choose to play. Walk into the women's bathroom? Expect to be berated by your boss. Kill off that innocent NPC? You better believe that someone somewhere is gonna give you $#!+ for it.
Moreover, the game also grants choices in ones progression towards completing any given goal. You can go in stealthily, or go in guns blazing. Either way is effective. You can do things such as choose to walk openly through a hallway and fight off enemies, or go through the air ducts instead and come out unscathed. These kinds of choices further cement the organic play through of Deus Ex. I know very well that games have been doing these kinds of things for years, and yet, there is something about the way DE presents it and runs with it that makes it feel, as I stated before, natural.
Some may find challenge with the game's age, but I really do believe that if you stick with it (save often!), you'll find it to be an incredibly rewarding experience.
Greatest ever, indeed.
