    it's here to because it is one of the very best RPG's that will ever be played.
    if you want details about it im sure there are many critics who have gone around and said what it has, or what it lacks.
    though all im here to say is that this game has it all, and if it catches your eye then you should know, it wont ever loosen its grip on you.
    i know that " you never asked for this" .

This game implements choice and consequence in both gameplay and story in great ways, better than most other games that try to do the same. This is a difficult problem to solve, especially for AAA titles where each cut-sequence, each line of dialog etc. costs so much. The game is great to play and then play again (potentially in New Game+) just to experience the alternative choices and new gameplay. Eg. trying the game just without picking the "cloak" augment can dramatically alter the way you play. Or instead try a "non-lethal" playthrough. There are some small quirks in the story but the universe is so rich, so well studied and fleshed out. Adam as a character, the main NPCs, the backdrop. A world definitely worth visiting and the philosophical questions asked definitely worth pondering upon. I don't want to compare it with the original game as some people might do, it is definitely a worthy addition to the Deus Ex universe and I would happily recommend it to everyone. Expand

Director's Cut version fixes a lot of stuff (like the insufferable yellow filter and nonsensical boss fights) but also introduces some issues in lighting. Must play. Expand

    DO NOT BUY DIRECTOR'S CUT
    Buy the original version: it has that awesome gold filter design and does not have an UNSKIPPABLE DLC Missing Link
