It's been several years since I've played Deus Ex, but it still stands out in my mind as one of the best games I've ever played, if not THE best. Deus Ex succesfully mixes RPG, first-person action and adventure. It's done so well that even if just ONE of those genres attracts you, you'll quite possibly end the game liking all of them. The storyline is excellent, and one great thing about the game that I remember is that the game can go in completely different directions depending on decisions you make. It's a long game, and the fact that you can start over, make different decisions and have a different experience adds to the replayability. However, those decisions don't come until a little late in the game, so if you don't keep your save point, you'll have to play much of the game over again to get there. Is this game a perfect 10??? I don't know, but it's definitely in the upper 9's. And since I'm restricted to either 9.5 or 10 because of the dumbing down of the reviews, I'll gladly give Deus Ex the benefit of the doubt and give it a 10.
