I think you're a little taken with the buzzwords Xom. SYSTEMATIC LEVEL DESIGN!"Systemic Level Design" is the name for it. What in the hell else would I call it, that wouldn't take up several sentences?
ADJUSTABLE TRANSPARENT HUD!And what in the hell would I call a HUD with adjustable transparency besides a "hud with adjustable transparency"?
But saying a game "has" something, implying that others don't, is sort of silly. Many games now, perhaps taking a nod from DX, have more open-ended styles of play.Absolutely no action or FPS game to date has met the same standard of open problem solving that Deus Ex has.
They were hampered by the lack of a real physics system,There were very few, if any, real physics engines when DX was released.
Greatest game ever made? That's a pretty silly statement, as everyone has their favorites, it's a very subejctive determination as to what's the "greatest." It was, objectively, a great and well-put together game.No, it was the best game ever made, and anyone who disagrees has bad taste. I'm not sure why people people even try to argue with me about this issue. Getting me to say that DX was anything less is like converting a Cardinal to Islam.
Actually, the term commonly used is "systemic", not "systematic".Doh. I didn't know "systemic" was even a word :/
Picture what it would be like to play in a huge cardboard box and you'll understand what the level design is like in Deus Ex.Yes. It's a cardboard box. A big fucking empty, open cardboard box. As opposed to Doom or Quake where you're on rails at all times.
compare DX, HL & Doom ? they are all excellent in their own ways 40% of u peeps probly aint played al em IMO.What, in God's creation was all that about?
peeps always want to limit themselves to dis/dat "its the only, its the best, it owns ALL" gimme a break we are all lucky if we are alive to play Part 2 of these games @the end o year cuz "they" will rock. scuse me while i craw back in my hole & keep OyOing.
Maybe it's just me but I found DX lacking atmosphere.
scuse me while i craw back in my hole & keep OyOing.
To their credit, the makers of Deus Ex 2 are not trying to compete with the big FPS titles like D3 and HL2.Brands such as Doom, Half Life and Deus Ex are all in competition with each other.
