Snowblind takes place in Deus Ex universe but this time its not an RPG but FPS and it works.Gameplay is very fun but the most important and strongest part of the game is directing.At times I actually felt like I was the main character,part of that is that the cut scenes are made with games engine,and are semi-interactive.Story is interesting and fun to follow,as a part of the gameplay developers gave us some skills (invisibility for example)that really ad to the strategy,and theres almost always couple of ways we can do the mission.I still(2014) recommend this game.

Project Snowblind although now dated, is a pretty good FPS game. At first glance, the game looks alot like Deus Ex, and in many ways it plays like Deus Ex, but unlike Deus Ex there aren't really RPG elements, this is mostly just an FPS game. Being an FPS game, Project Snowblind has many different weapons to use and the level design is quite good although the aim assist makes the game a tad on the easy side. As the game is quite old, you will definately notice that the voice acting and graphical style leaves a bit to be desired by today's standards. Its also quite annoying that the game only supports low resolutions; the highest resolution I could pick was 1024x768, and this, coupled by the dated graphics is not a great look. If you can overlook the dated graphics and sound, there is a pretty good FPS experience to be had with this game.
Tastes like Deus ExFlamingDbag | Aug. 20, 2013 | See all FlamingDbag's reviews »
Originally Deus Ex: Clan Wars, this game is almost entirely focused on action. There's no RPG elements but there's bits of stealth and computer/robot hacking that are obviously heavily inspired by Deus Ex. The story isn't strong but almost everything about this game screams Deus Ex, such as having augmentations with familiar abilities. Honesetly? It still IS the lost Deus Ex. Ignore the fact the story's almost entirely placeholder and you're forced to have (although thanks to the nice weapon selection they're fun) shoot outs in 80% of situations it turns out if Deus Ex followed the more standard style of FPS design it's still one of the better shooters I've ever played. It's also one of the more clever and creative shooters. Only real problems I have with the game is that it's only roughly 8 hours long, for some reason aim assist is forever enabled and there's no widescreen support. Also no difficulty options but the game makes up for that later. Despite those minor annoyances the game is surprisingly pretty damn good and everyone should try it out.

This game is truly FUN. It gets the action, weapons, and atmosphere right but it falls short in the same way most new games do; its too short. You can play through it in about 8-10 hours and thats if you take your time. The graphics are a little rusty as well, great if it came out in 2002, but definately tailored to what the PS2 can handle. I'd recommend buying it

This game was released back in 2006 and It was originally intended to be set in the deus ex universe; now its just a stand-alone game and a first person shooter without the RPG elements, I have played and completed snowblind (why because I love deus ex and first person shooters) There are a few aspects that borrow from the series there's almost always another way through an area -- usually involving climbing in and around air ducts (you'd think bad guys would do something about this constant breach). You can hack into computers, dominate mechs, and even toss spiderbots. Hell, a lot of the weapons (EMP grenades) and enemies (security bots, automated turrets) are ripped right from Deus Ex's design doc but I have no problem with these similarities at all. Also In Project snowblind it's possible to use biomods to customize and enhance your character with superhuman powers. These augmentations include Reflex Boost which essentially slows the game for a small amount of time, Cloak which turns you invisible, Vision which is essentially an Infra-red mode allowing you to see through walls, Electrical Storm which fires an electrical ball at enemies, and finally the Ballistic Shield which makes you virtually invincible. These biomods really are a great addition to the game - it's been seen before of course but adds a bit more depth to the gameplay.
This game wins for me in terms of fun factor for example I enjoyed the vehicles, Using a futuristic Ford Escort to mow down enemies was fun … adding a turret to its hood was even better, I loved the weapons and some of them were really fun to use. I love the squad elements where you fight in the streets or defend certain positions (sometimes the battles felt really epic) and Hacking and controlling gun turrents or security bots to eliminate groups of enemies etc. The game has also got an awesome and unique introduction.
Although there are many cons to the game such as The music is on a little on the weak side - it's not overly exciting, nor does it convey the grittiness of war to well and the voice acting is a little naff. The game has a rather short length - about 10 hours and the graphics in Project: Snowblind isn't quite up to par with current releases but it does try to include bits and pieces of a great looking game. The environments within Snowblind stand out above the rest of the graphics as each level seems to have its own distinct feel. Each is modeled with their own attributes with great detail. The sci-fi theme is captured excellently, but the same couldn't be said about the character models. The characters feel bland and nonexistent. The enemies have no differential details to them and all look identical. Only a few have an unique look to them and they aren't met until the sewer level where you infiltrate the General's headquarters. Comparing to outings in other first- person shooters, Snowblind isn't that impressive when it comes to graphics.
If you can forgive the above cons then project snowblind is a fun game to play
