    Why Deus Ex is the game to scratch your Cyberpunk itch?

    Deux Ex hit the markets in the summer of 2000 and spawned a franchise that was way ahead of its time. Set in the bleak year of 2052 where humans have reached a stage of advancements where they could be half-man and half-human, it tackles the age-old question: Do we fear change? How far will we go to suppress it and those who embrace it?

    Heart Of The Matter

    Each game is set in its own unique locale where you’re a part of the ever-growing dystopian cyberpunk setting where powerful organizations are going head-to-head in their conquest for power and control often coming at the expense of innocent citizens. 

    The original Deus Ex is a masterpiece in its own right despite time not being very kind to it in terms of visuals. The setting and lore however hold up incredibly well and are perfected in the newer entries Human Revolution and Mankind Divided, two games that are visually and mechanically viable and the ones to be experienced in this day and age. The first game in the franchise sets the tone for this, while the following entries expand with more personal vendettas added to the story. The sequels tackle the issue of change and how it’s perceived without shying about it. Blatant discrimination against the humans who sometimes choose, or sometimes by circumstance end up augmented is a root issue tackled in the two entries. Powerful organizations using the ever-growing hatred to fuel opinions and spread their agendas reflect on the society we are in, and to be frank, the one we’ve always been in. The game shows that societies don’t necessarily change for the better, no matter how many technological advancements you sprinkle in. This bleak offset makes the characters stand out more, desperately clinging on to a world that’s growing, but simultaneously falling apart. 

    Match-Day Essentials

    The setting and lore do a great job of intriguing interest but only do so on paper. The build-up only gives a pay-off if the actual game is fun to play. So what is Deus Ex? How does it play?

    Deus Ex is a first-person, immersive sim action RPG that puts you in the shoes of Adam Jensen/ JC Denton actively defying their fates and the organizations controlling it. 

    All the entries put you in a small but immensely in-depth open world with tons of NPCs to meet, conspiracies to unravel, and bad guys to deal with.

     A robust dialogue system implemented in a way that allows you to comprehend the recipient’s mood lets you shape your story how you choose to, leaving nothing to chance like in other games such as Fallout 4. 

    All quests (yes, all of them!) allow you to get by without shedding a drop of blood by simply settling things in a verbal manner thanks to the well-designed dialogue system. If it comes down to it, however, the great level design all across the board lets you choose how you deal with the bad guys. Dozens of weapons, gadgets, and abilities make these levels a blast to go through time and time again, further adding to the inherent replayability that comes with RPGs. 

    The great setting mixed with the fun gameplay and excellent RPG elements makes Deus Ex and must-play, especially for any RPG enthusiast.
