The 21st century has no doubt brought a revolution in the gaming industry. Deus Ex was released right at the beginning on the new century. The game has received a lot of accolades which include being considered the best PC game of all time. It has received several other awards and recognitions as well. Release Date: The game was initially released on 17th June 2000.
The player plays as JC Denton, who is a UNATCO representative. JC Denton is actually nano augmented which means that he can perform several amazing super human tasks. JC is given missions by the Director of UNATCO Joseph Manderley. The player then has to complete those missions. Most of the missions work around getting stolen information and fighting against terrorists.
One of the most unique things about Deus Ex –The Conspiracy is that it offers a mixture of many different game genres. These include immersive simulation, adventure, 1st person shooter and role-playing. The game also features an element of stealth which offered a very unique experience back in 2000. In addition to the shooting, the game also features reflex-based combat abilities. The players can also work on customizing their weapons according to their preferences. Another feature that was way ahead of time was the interaction with non-playable characters. The way you responded to the non-playable characters had a great impact on the game and outcome of specific plot of the game. There are many different choice activities that player can choose from. This was all in all one of the first games to give people so much control of their surroundings in the game.
The game was released as single player software however with time and increasing popularity, multiplayer was also introduced. Even after almost 20 years of the initial release, people still play both single and multiplayer versions of the game.
Mods And Other Releases
Over the years, the popularity of Deus Ex has encouraged the developers to release new sequels and mods to the game. A new multiplayer patch has also been introduced for players to keep playing together even after the old server was shut down. The mods remarkable enhanced the gameplay for a game which was already a way ahead of its time. In addition to that the sequels also portrayed a more modern and advanced version of the game. Even after so many sequels, many people still play the initial version of the game.
The releases aren’t just limited to mods and sequels. The popularity of the game also spawned talks about a potential movie based on the game. The talks about the movie started in 2002 however after a couple of years it was announced that the talks about the movie had fallen out.
The game offers features that were way ahead of its time. With so many awards and recognitions under its belt and the critical acclaim we give this game a solid 4.5/5.

Say Deus Ex three times really fast and you may find yourself muttering the words "day of sex," which, incidentally, is not completely unlike spending 24 straight hours with this unique first-person shooter. DX is a long, roller-coaster ride of an action game that will leave you happily exhausted in its final hours. What makes the game so satisfying is its combination of many well-handled elements. Its nearfuture scenario, in which a group of New York-based terrorists rises up against the governing body, has the hook of an X-Files episode with just enough real-world relevance to send chills down your spine. But Ex is more than just a good story; its excellent game design gives you the freedom to call all the shots. For the hell of it, I ran through the game as a merciful agent of the law, dishing out only non-lethal justice with my pepper spray and riot baton. It paid off. Those around me talked in hushed tones about how I was such a big wimp, but I actually received bonus items for my pacifist ways. Don't get me wrong, with all the heavy artillery you get, there's plenty of carnage to be had in Ex. But there's beauty in restraint, and the game shows plenty of discipline. My only complaint is that Ex wasn't prettier to look at. Some choppy gameplay makes it straight-up embarrassing for a PS2 title at times. But when all the other pieces come together, Deus Ex is the perfect example of why we never judge purely on appearances.
This is not a first-person shooter. Sure, gunpowder junkies can get their fill of shotguns and sniper rifles. But if that's all you're looking for, the graphics here are so choppy and blocky you'd be better off with...well, just about any other PS2 FPS. Deus Ex is more like a first-person adventure: You infiltrate compounds, hack computers, pick locks, disable cameras--the game offers a refreshing number of different methods outside the usual "kill, kill, find key, kill" mold to accomplish goals. This unique degree of freedom, enhanced by a load of customizable skills and weapons, makes up for the graphical inferiority and long load times.
Deus Ex is more first-person strategy than shooter. Yeah, you have loads of weapons, but you can get through most of the game without even touching 'em if you play it smart. Ex affords you a kind of game-play latitude I haven't seen from any other action-shooter, and your character's stats and storyline are extremely responsive to the way you play each mission. I really love being rewarded for voluntary exploration, stealth and minimal hostile engagement --a lot of games force these tactics on you in an almost scripted fashion. The control pad's a bitch for navigating menus and aiming, but FPS purists can always use a USB mouse and keyboard....
