Trivia

Early in the game while you attempt to recover an implanted chip from the brain of a puritan in the police department the player comes across terminals with emails referencing the film Bladerunner. The terminal log in is for a user named "Deckard" who is Bladerunner's protagonist while the exchange of emails comes from another user named "roy" to discuss borrowing his "Priss coupe - pleasure model" Roy Batty is of course the antagonist of Blade Runner and "Priss" is another replicant from the film who is classed as a "Pleasure Model" while Deckard is briefed by the police captain in the film.

Goofs

An email in the Picus Station in Montreal is supposedly written by Nicolette DuClare. This cannot be however, as Nicolette had not been born according to the Deus Ex Timeline. This was most likely meant to be her mother Beth. See more »

Quotes

Adam Jensen: Albert Einstein said: "Technological progress is like an axe in the hands of pathological criminal." Took me awhile, but I finally see his point. How often have we chased the dream of progress, only to see that dream perveted? More often than not, haven't the machines we built to improve life shattered the lives of millions? And now we want to turn that dream on ourselves, to fundamentally improve who we are. Experience has shown me how dangerous that can be. How many times, in the call of duty...

So much potential bogged down by a formulaic approach
21 August 2012 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

I had no idea that Deux Ex was a first-person-shooter before I installed it. Not only do I think that FPS video games have been done to absolute death, I also believe that they will be the death of video gaming. In fact, it should be illegal to own or produce FPS games from this point onwards.

THEY. ARE. ALL. THE. SAME.

On top of this I find it just a bit disturbing that millions of gamers all over the world take pleasure in sniping so many bad guys. Had I known that Deus Ex was an FPS I would have opted for some cutesy kiddie's game instead. As it was, I was obligated to play through it as I didn't want a trophy count of 0% to tarnish my list. It turns out that the game is actually very imaginative, with a frequently deeply emotional soundtrack, and a lovely neo-noir atmosphere of almost perpetual darkness. The story is important, and political, and will no doubt be a huge controversy when it eventually develops in real life. But the game goes on f-o-r-e-v-e-r. Seriously folks, this is a long, long, loooooooooong game. There are 15 chapters in this story. It should have been 10.

An immersive, political story I can handle, but not as an FPS. Deus Ex is extremely repetitive and many of the levels and environments feature identical architecture and designs. Plus the whole 'Main Quest with multiple Side Quests' concept is getting a bit old now. There's so much potential in Deus Ex: Human Revolution but it's all spoiled the formulaic design.

There is a huge world out there filled with adventure and possibility, to spend a million hours hunting down every last trophy in this game would be tragic. I maxed-out at 52% and I'm happy with that.
