Hands On Deus Ex
4:49 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
Billed as "one of the most lengthy game reviews ever seen on
MacCentral," this in-depth hands-on with Aspyr Media's Deus Ex is indeed thorough. Covering every conceivable aspect and angle of this shooter/RPG hybrid from Ion Storm, this preview by Jaap "jot" Tuinman presents a uniformly positive and enthusiastic picture of this game. If you haven't been able to grab the demo of this game due to bandwidth restrictions -- modem users, we feel your pain -- then this review should answer all of your questions about this engrossing title. Here is an excerpt discussing one of the strongest aspects of the game, the tactical approach to combat:
"Nobody's stopping you from running into situations with guns blazing The preview also features several screen shots. Stop by MacCentral and check it out today! If you haven't grabbed the demo yet, make sure and stop by Macgamefiles and download it -- over 6400 Mac users already have!
if you prefer, but the alternatives are interesting and worth
checking out. Why waltz into a room with a light anti-tank weapon
when you can haul out the sniper-rifle or tranquilizer-loaded
mini-crossbow to take care of those guards from a safe distance?
Doors can be blown up or locks can be picked, codes can be stolen or
security panels hacked, and guards can be tranquilized or rendered
ineffective with a gas grenade. Alternately, you could just
circumvent the works entirely, making like Die Hard's John McClane
and heading for the nearest air duct. You never have just one
solution to a problem available to you, and amazingly the game never
seems to let you get stuck.
