The year is 2052 and the world is a dangerous and chaotic place. Terrorists operate openly - killing thousands; drugs, 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 grows ever wider. 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.
Real role-playing from an immersive 3D, first-person perspective. The game includes action, character interaction and problem solving.
Realistic, recognizable locations. Many of the locations are built from actual blueprints of real places set in a near future scenario.
A game filled with people rather than monsters. This creates empathy with the game characters and enhances the realism of the game world.
Rich character development systems: Skills, augmentations, weapon and item selections and multiple solutions to problems ensure that no two players will end the game with similar characters.

While the graphics look incredibly outdated, controls on PC are not so great and RPG elements are kind of unbalanced, one thing that is truly excellent in this game only handful of games barely achieved it's level is writing. While on the surface it looks like simple conspiracy story and fight against evil corporations, it actually goes deeper and can make you think about a thing or two in real life, without getting preachy. It's really smart and beauty of it is in the small details. Gameplay itself is also good and if it wasn't for the controls, it could've been perfect. Thankfuly, this game has mods to fix it's issues, like aged graphics and controls. Level design is also really good and complex, making every new playthrough different. If you never played deus ex you absolutetly must play it, because it's really excellent title. If you felt like something was missing and want to find out what happened with the world after Deus Ex: Human Revolution/Mankind Divided, this game also explains it. Great game, strongly recommended.
I'll be brief - Deus Ex is probably the best game ever made and possibly one of the best pieces of entertainment, media, etc of all time. It is essential to play. The game looks a little rough lately but a dedicated mod community has cleaned up the graphics, so it looks better if you do some digging for mods. Deus Ex is crafty, charming, and scarily clairvoyant.
It was quite hard learning to play by the game's rules, I had to give it a chance and not rage-quit, but after some missions you can see where the game shines and why it is prized this much. The action was good, stealth good and there were some nice quests. I really like the fact that bodies can be moved and hidden so others don't see them. Graphics are also nice, I really like that you can change the colors of the menus, you don't see that on every game! :D
Deus Ex is easily one of the best games that I have l played. The gameplay was excellent, giving you multiple ways to get through the environment depending on the items and skills that you have. You might sneak through vents, pick locks, find passwords from computers and notes, hack doors and turrets, or try for a more brute force approach to your problems. Weapons could be customized in different ways and as you played through the game you had options in what kind of powers you wanted to be able to use. Deus Ex also does a good job creating an interesting world, characters, and plot. It was one of the earlier games that could make you care about some of the people that you might end up fighting, enemies might turn out to be allies and friendly coworkers that used to greet you can be told that you are a threat. The game makes it possible to take a more stealthy or nonlethal approach to most situations and character interactions with you changing based on whether or not you are killing people, knocking them out, or avoiding them and getting to know some of the people you end up fighting gives you incentive to look for the alternate paths and approaches available to you. The visuals are certainly outdated but there have been mods created that can improve the look of the game.
You know, maybe you even remember. Lately we don't have much games with mixed genres, which would allow you to play YOUR WAY, from begin to the end. Sure, we had Human Revolution but in my opinion, original Deus Ex is the best. Even tho this game is already 15 years, don't have fancy graphics anymore but the story, music, different levels: with either calm walking around or filled with tons of enemies, amazing climate and more fun than most of today's games. You will be surprised how solid this game is. Classic games never dies and Deus Ex surely is this kind of game. Doesn't matter if you are not fan of old games - this is a must play and if you ever want to call yourself a gamer - you better play it before. Even players who picked up this game after so many years are really surprised and pleased how good it is.
