In the year 2000, conspiracies began to die down. Tensions were starting to ease after the Y2K computer crashing rumors subsided, and in a world pre-9/11 and post-Cold War, we had nothing to fear… or so it seemed.
That is, of course, until Deus Ex released and with it, a reminder to gamers far and wide that conspiracies are probably still all around us, later confirmed by real, unfortunate events that still shape our world today.
The brainchild of Warren Spector and Ion Storm, Deus Ex offered a successful blending of multiple genres executed in such a way that gamers had never seen before, instantly propelling itself into the annals of video game history as a true ‘classic’.
Then, along rolls 2003 and Deus Ex: Invisible War trots onto store shelves everywhere… needless to say, we’d much rather forget about it.
Finally, we have arrived in August 2011, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution is here to augment your life and your very way of thinking.
Once again, conspiracies abound, and the truth will change you; the question is, are you ready to experience it?
