After almost 15 years, the legacy of this game still live strong, there are many games that follow the step of the original Deus Ex like a whole feature, games like Bioshock, S.T.A.L.K.E.R, Dishonored and also the new sequels Human Revolution and Mankind Divided, but...
Does this game still hold up?
Getting over the ugly graphics by today standards, bad voice acting, not so good stealth, RPG and Shooting gameplay, this one still a badass game.
The level desing is so superb that even today I still find new ways to finish a level, it serve all the short coming that the mechanics have, is so open that you can roleplay in this game, is so complex that can feel like a good level from a 90´s FPS and you can beat those levels without killing anyone.
The Story is complex and a fun ride, if you are a sucker for Cyberpunk fiction this is one of the best tales of the genre, it goes over the cheesy dialogue and the sometimes hilarious execution, to deliver a fun tale, fun in a Cyberpunk 2020 RPG Module.
The Music and the art direction, make me forget about the ugly graphics, to the point that sometimes I get so inmerse that I can stop playin until I find a to rest (in game), the levels seems so livable (I don´t know if that a word) that I sometimes seem myself care about the nameless soldiers and goons, I feel bad for them.
In the end, the awnser is yes, even in 2015 there are no game that match this one in my opinion, there are many that came close, but at this time, this one still the second coming of Christ.
ALL HAIL J.C DENTON.
