    One of the best action-RPG's ever made. It has flaws but the great combat makes up for them.

    An engaging story-telling experience, unusual gameplay, and hours of enjoyment, though it also has it's issues.

    Deus Ex isn't perfect, but its strengths and weaknesses come together to create a thoroughly unique masterpiece.

    Rated on June 28, 2008 by RoboWizard

    No key? No worries, there's always another way around. This makes Deus Ex one of the best games I've ever played.
