Re: Please rate this article: "Deus Ex then and now"
Thanks for reading! I feel sort of painful inside about this piece and realize probably for the first time since college how difficult it is to effectively compare and contrast two different things.
Part of me wants to simplify my thoughts and just write retrospectively on how incredible Deus Ex was. But it's rare that I have a chance to play new games (HR, in this case) this close to their release date and then write something while it's still fresh for conversation.
At any rate, other people on this site have gone into detail about the pros and cons of the mechanics and what not, so I figured I'd try and focus more on the intangibles.
If you get to playing the game, I'd be interested to see if you agree/disagree. Thanks again.
