Deus Ex

I’ve been wanting to write a review of this game for a while, as it was certainly a favorite of mine when it was released.

Its hype and sales roughly equal those of Myst, and probably would have remained just as legendary, if it hadn’t turned into something of a one-hit-wonder. Otherwise, 7th (I refuse to call it by its cutesy-ass […]
