||Deus Ex Description:|
is a thrilling role-playing adventure in which you play the part of a powerful, technologically augmented anti-terrorist agent. The future is here, and the world is a dangerous and chaotic place. Terrorists operate openly, killing thousands; drug, disease, and pollution kill even more. The world's economies are close to collapse and the gap between the insanely wealthy and the desperately poor has grown to the size of the Grand Canyon. Worst of all, an ages-old conspiracy bent on world domination has decided that the time is right to emerge from the shadows and take control. No one believes they exist. No one but you.
Deus Ex is a world of lies and betrayal, a world where nothing is as it seems and entire nations can be turned against you at the push of a button. To succeed, you must travel the globe in a quest for knowledge, develop your character's strengths as you see fit, build a network of allies to assist you, determine when stealth and strategy are more important than action. And each time you think you've got the mystery solved, the game figured out, there's another, deeper mystery to be unraveled. You will never know who to trust, who your friends are, who's in on the conspiracy and who's innocent. Maybe no one is.
Deus Ex combines the best elements of role-playing, action, adventure, and first person shooter genres in a chaotic blend of real world conspiracies, cliffhangers, and plot twists. Experience a richly simulated world of unparalleled interactivity, engineered to react logically to your every action. The decisions and consequences are yours. You'll travel the world from New York to Paris to Hong Kong exploring locations recreated from detailed maps, blueprints, and photographs in this globe-hopping, epic adventure. How you choose to deal with scores of characters affects the outcome of the game, minute-to-minute, mission-to-mission, and start to finish. Select and develop your own unique set of skills and technologies; determine which weapons and objects you need to survive and solve problems. Will you be the charismatic master manipulator, the shrewd and stealthy tactician, or the deadly avenging angel?
