Deus Ex brings back something that made old PC games so great: It's got a lot of depth, an intriguing story with plenty of in-game tidbits that will keep you submerged in the in-game world while you play. I love when your actions affect the game, positively or negatively, and you live with your choices. Grated most do not affect the main storyline, but befriend someone, and you will later see the effects on their lives which at times will come back on you. The game world is FULL of things to find, if you're willing to explore. Exploring in this game isn't just to keep your stealth method alive, or to take a shortcut: It's actually VERY rewarding.
My first run I took the cloaked, passive way throughout the game. I have to say Deus Ex's pacifist method is by far the hardest to achieve than in most any other recent game out there. Yet it remains fun.
My second run through the game was the run-n-gun type. The many weapons in this game make that method VERY enjoyable. I usually hate this method of gaming, but in DEHR is was great. The augmentation system is deep, and lets you choose many different methods for each stage of the game.
The designers made each level completely open and multi-path. You are NEVER forced to do things THEIR way or in some pre-determined method. The choice is yours: bust in and kill everything, sneak in silently, or find/make an alternative way to reach the objective.
Over all a great game in today's dying first person shooter world, a reminder that the FPS genre doesn't have to be storyless and bland.

Well it's a good game but to much talking about every aspect and is kind of confusing but the controls are different but alright it's like metal gear and crysis and syphon filter and mass effect all into one game. But worth renting if you want a game that makes you have to use tactical fighting

Quick story: When I got the game in the mail, I was excited and thrilled. I put it into the PS3 and waited for installation. The menu pops up, I'm on the edge of my seat already (having LOVED the first Deus Ex). Played through the first part and felt like Deus Ex finally when back to it's roots. It reminded me of the first one (I didn't care much for the second one). I played for 12 straight hours I COULD NOT PUT THIS GAME DOWN.
Gameplay: Very easy controls to learn, I didn't like L3 being crouch because the boss battles I kept pressing it when I was trying to dodge. The customization with Augs is nice. The graphics are amazing minus the couple few glitches. The voice acting was spot on Adam reminded me of JC Denton. The stealth I had a hard time doing so ended up resorting to unleashing bullets on everyone most of the time. The AI can be pretty stupid. Block their path and they're stuck. The HACKING is so much fun to me. Picking up a taken over turret and dragging it with me made it too easy sometimes ;)
Would I recommend this game? Yeah! A few reviews I read that claim they couldn't get into it and the game is dead and empty didn't play it long enough. The conspiracies are never ending. LOVE IT!
