I seldom have time to read reviews these days. I'm glad I read this one!

Have you played System Shock 2? Lots of the things that people said made Deus Ex so cool seem to me to have been done better in that game.

Anyway, I'm glad you took the game to task the way you did--too many reviewers revisit old classics either to practice some revisionist history (this was never good!) or to pretend they haven't noticed how poorly some aspects have aged.

And incidentally, your comical description of the ventilation shaft killings reminds me of Stolen.

Never played System Shock 2, though I've wanted to. If it's anything like Deus Ex, then I probably should get off my ass and give it a shot.

I try to make note of how poorly some games age. I think sometimes my sense of nostalgia gets the better of me, but that wasn't the case with Deus Ex. Mostly I was fed up with the overabundant darkness, though the visuals as a whole were actually pretty nauseating.

I keep forgetting Stolen exists. I think your review keeps reminding me. I've stumbled on it a couple times. The screens at GameFAQs kind of remind me of Rogue Ops.
