Interesting, what's it like ? I considered buying it for cheap (PS2) but I'm not sure I'd like it. What genre is it exactly ?

My game OTM : R-Type Final, PS2, Shoot'em up

Nothing stunning technically but quite enjoyable to play

Deus Ex is really interesting and rather fun. But the PC version is a bit better.

ALSO ...

I have gone from Doom III and Painkiller
to
Counter Strike: Source, PC, First Person Shooter. All I can say is O ... M ... G!

And

Tron 2.0, PC, First Person Shooter. I picked this one up again because I got tired of the dark Doom and I wanted more colors.

Yeah, that's pretty much it. :-\

I played the xbox version of desu x. seemed like there was no antialiasing so it was really ugly on my friends giant hd tv. I'd go with a PC version if at all possible unless your tv is small and tube like.

It's not really a single genre. Basically, you can choose whether you'd like to play it as a 3D shooter (not as much action as you'd be accustomed to if you've played other shooters) or as stealth game (much like Thief or Splinter Cell). It has certain RPG elements too. For instance, there's a LOT of text you can read, (don't have to) like newspapers that are lying all over the places and you can interact with every character in the world, sometimes resulting in dialogs with multiple-choice answers. Another RPG element is that your character (JC Denton) is a nano-augmented agent and, as such, has about 11 or so different skills. While playing the game you earn skill points you can use to improve your skill levels, allowing you to hack computers faster (yep, you can hack computers ), be more proficient with a handgun etc.

I personally really like Deus Ex. It uses the UT 1 engine IIRC, so the graphics aren't top notch anymore, and the controls feel kinda different (hard to describe), but the story is pretty cool and the game has a really nice atmosphere. I really recommend playing it, especially when you can get it as cheap as you say.

I really resent it when people say you can play Deus Ex as a 3D shooter like Quake 3 or something (I'm not having a dig at CaptainNuss specifically)... you can't play it as a runny jumpy bang-bang-kill-everything shoot em up because you just get pwnt. The game really isnt designed for it, when i first got the game I tried it with my mad Quake3 skillz and i lasted about 5 seconds.

Games that say you can play them stealthily or all out attack almost always have to be played stealthily. The only exception i can think of is FarCry, where guns blazing actually is a viable tactic if your good at that kind of gameplay, but sneaky sneaky works too.

As I said in my post, it doesn't have as much action as the Q3 type of shooter, but there is a difference between sneaking past a guard, sneaking up to a guard and using a prod to disable the guard or just running up to him and shooting him with a sawed-off shotgun.

I just reached the final part of the game, btw!

I beat Deus Ex! Has taken me about 26 hours and almost 1100 savegames. ("Save early, save often.") I just saw the third of three endings. Great game! The sad part is, I have no idea what to tackle next...

If your just a PC gamer then I would suggest:

Thief: Deadly Shadows
Medal Of Honor Series (fun both offline & online)
Command & Conquer Generals
Halo


also check out the recently released MOH: PA DEMO

Thanks for the suggestions. I don't really have money for any new games at the moment though, just bought the parts for a new computer, so it'll come down to play something I already have, but haven't beat yet. Just installed Colin McRae Rally 2, haven't finished the championship there. Also, I'll start playing UT 2004 again when I have assembled the new computer.

controversial here:

Tomb Raider: The Angel Of Darkness (ooooooo)

yes, it is nowhere near as good as it should be, but still. im playing the pc version, so its a little easier to control than the damn ps2 version. its actually not that bad. i have like, every single other tomb raider game on the pc, so i kinda was like, i'll buy it, and because i was expecting it to be dire, i was pleasantly surprised.

another game: Shadow Of Memories. theres a cool game

Since I've beat R-Type FINAL, (yay me ), I've started a new game and it's Silent Hill 2. Survival horror at its best, or I should say at his worst. Quite franly, I haven't been so scared by a game since the first Resident Evil.

Still have an unopened copy of Silent Hill 3 next to my PS2 from last year. Not sure whether its because my PS2 gaming has become close to obsolete or beacuse i'm just to damn sh** scared to play it! I'm deeply scarred from the first one I played back on ye olde PS1

Praps i'll keep hold of it for when those cold dark winter nights draw in!

That is a good idea, that's when these games are played best, I'm hanging on to finish up Resident Evil Zero on the cube, there is just something about playing a Horror game in the summer with the windows open and the warm sun streaming in that just dosn't seem right....

Now that I have a new computer and everything's up and running again I can actually play UT 2004 with highest graphics settings. Amazin! I'm getting addicted to playing UT online again... Oh, and I plan on playing Splinter Cell sometime again.

oh right I bought two new used games
RalliSport Challenge 2 for 25 dollars
Time Splitters 2 for 18 dollars

with the gamestop card thinggy my friend had I saved 10% which covered the 8.8% tax.

Time Splitters has a horrible story but who cares? I get to run around and shoot zombies and aliens and monkies. RalliSport Challenge 2 is awesome. I may be going Live if I find a better way to get my XBoX on the net.

MK: Deception looks like it's good. Online play, over 25 characters, 10 unlockables, Konquest, and unlocking Koin Chests. Looks like it's the better new MK game, not to mention all the Fatalaties. By the way, much better than Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance.

The last mortal combat sucked but this one is suppose to be good. I'm not to big a fan of the gore but it makes for a good rental

Are the 10 unlockable charchters part of the 25 or does it bring the total to 35? Usually it means there are 15 charchters and 10 you must unlock.

25 + 10 unlockables. So 35, maybe 40. But there is a definite 10 unlockable from the site I went to(the main MK: D site) and it said there were 10. There's a Kollectors Edition that comes with Mortal Kombat 1, Area 51 demo(mainly like Half Life 2, and Doom 3.) Trading card, and a gift certificate at the end of the month for some "Surprise".

I think it's good, my friend mentioned that these games get boring fast(fighting games). But I do think it's good for a rental only, mostly because if you're a die hard fan, you'll buy it. If not, rent it, play it for a week. If you still like it, rent it for another week.
