First a word of warning, before you start playing
the game, unplug your telephone, close the windows and get some
vacation time: This game is addictive!
Deus Ex takes place around 2050 in a world that is stricken by
a deadly virus. The "Grey Death" virus has already infected
millions of people and keeps spreading over the world. Different
government and terrorist organisations are trying to find a cure,
the latter for money reasons.

Conversation with a bum
A nice cutscene
A friendly UNATCO agent
Your brother, Paul Dention has already been working
for UNATCO for some time when you follow in his footsteps. Being
new to the company means that you first have to prove yourself
in action. Being a cyborg combines all the best from both the
human and the mechanical world.
The Warren Spector team spent months coming up with a great story
and they succeeded. Deus Ex involves a very deep plot, many of
the different conspiracies are based upon real life happenings.
Even the different terrorist and government organisations are
more than just Warren Spectors fantasies.
At the beginning you have the chance to train your skills in the
"Training Center". All the specific controls and skill
usages will be taught you there.
The upgrade system adds a lot of fun to the whole
game. JC Denton can be updated with additional augmentations.
On the augementation screen you have the possibility to install
new augmentations that you found on your journey. Augmentations
can be found as canisters, each canister will offer you a choice
between two different upgrades but you can only select one and
the other option will no longer be available after its been installed.
You can also update existing augmentations with an
upgrade canister. Using your augmentations is restricted to the
amount of energy you have available and some augmentations need
more power than others, draining your supply in a matter of seconds.
Fortunately you can refill your energy with bio cells that you'll
find thorough the game.
