The graphics might be dated but the themes and storyline are more relevant than ever!
Yeah -- it's kind of crazy when you realize this game was pre-9/11. Almost two decades have passed since that day so it's hard to remember, but that day changed so much, and the themes in this game are so relevant to concerns about the security state.

What are HR and MD?
That one took me a second. It's Human Revolution and Mankind Divided. I don't know why some people insist on abbreviating everything, as if they're universally known abbreviations.

It won several GOTY awards, and at least one game of the decade award. I already have it on Steam. Can take anywhere from 30 to 100 hours to beat depending on your play style. Most fantastic story/immersion of any game ever.

I think most who've grown up on games made in the last few years would not be able to stomach the graphics, gameplay mechanics, voice acting etc of Deus Ex 1. But for those who lucked out and played it in 2000, this game was revolutionary and an unforgettable experience. I played it 4 times from release until around 2015. Last time was with many graphical enhancing mods like Revision and High Def packs etc (website: moddb) which seemed necessary in spite of nostalgia.

My friend who didn't play it when it released, tried it around 2010 but couldn't get past an hour because of the graphics and a couple of other things. He probably also seeked reasons to not like it because of my undying infatuation with it (a strange phenomenon many other people share too) But when Deus Ex: Human Revolution came out, he played it and it's now his top 2 favorite games ever. And that game was a remix of DX1 in many ways. So if not this, definitely keep an eye out for DX:HR before that gets dated too.

Bottom line, this is a good deal for those who loved it and don't have it, who haven't gamed enough to have rigid standards/expectations, or who have a non-pedantic and open mind to dated games.

The game page says this requires directx and windows XP. Is that accurate or does anyone know if can I still run in on Win 98 with 3dfx glide like the original? I have this already on GFWL, but obviously that doesn't run on Win 98

I still listen to the soundtrack. Unreal
FYI, the remake of the soundtrack is about to be released:

This GOG version comes with Deus Ex: Revision, downloadable through the launcher. DE:R is a community patch/mod that cleans up and adds higher res textures and models, GUI, and generally spruces up the game. It's worth another playthrough with DE:R.
GOG? ? What is?

The first level is very hard - my first play through I died a ton of times. I would suggest the tranquilizer gun. You can't hit the broad side of a barn when you start the game (especially when you're moving) and if I recall there's not a lot of ammo. So instead of moving and shooting and missing, you stay still, isolate the enemy, tranq him and move on. I had success through the rest of the game by gradually putting my skill points into the hand pistol and upgrading with things like the silencer.

The soundtrack is good (Hong Kong music and UNATCO theme are fan favorites). There's a folder full of .umx files - those are the music files. Play them with XMPlay. There's also fan made remaster and remix albums:
https://www.dx-revision.com/in-de...oundtrack/
https://augment.ocremix.org/
Also check out youtube and search 'deus ex remix' or 'deus ex cover' and you will for sure find some good stuff.

If you get stuck I was gonna recommend the below site (I used 10 years ago) but seems to have disappeared. This kind of guide (pictures + text) is MUCH better than wasting time on youtube videos or text only guides like gamefaqs. If anyone has it saved you should upload it:
http://www.visualwalkthroughs.com...deusex.htm
This looks like a decent alternative but seems pretty light on pictures:
https://deusex.fandom.com/wiki/De...alkthrough

Finally - I remember this game having this worst controls ever for climbing/dismounting ladders (an underground or sewer like scene in particular I still have bad memories of).

I loved playing this when it came out, and still do occasionally, but after playing HR and MD with their superior gameplay it's really showing its age. I'd love a remake with the updated engine.
I started playing Human Resistance a couple months ago and at first i hated the game play but i kept played it got better quickly. Despite it being 8 years old I am playing it regularly.

One of the greatest games of all time.

It was insanely predictive of governmental overreach and loss of freedoms, too. We pretty much live in the dystopian world they made fiction of.

In case anyone cares I was able to locate partial archive of this guide but almost all of it is not there:
http://archive.fo/AIk5C
Based on the below it looks like only the links for Hong Kong (1) [archive.fo]andParis (2) [archive.fo] work.

And I couple random-ass printouts from some guy dated July 2018:

Probably my all time favorite game. It would be a cross between this one, Thief, and Dishonored.

It's a struggle to recommend this game or not, I've played it a bunch throughout the years but it's very dated. I guess you can't go wrong for the price either way, but unless you're used to how older RPGs play and progress you probably won't like it. You could always cheat and just enjoy the story though.

This game is cursed for me. Got a free pc copy from some gaming magazine sometime in 2002, but the pc I was playing it on broke while playing it. I got the "upgraded" PS2 version, and had my PS2 stolen with it inside.
I really want to play this, but I think I'll save my dollar today to spare myself having to possibly spend $1000 on another pc. 😔
