Ranking the Deus Ex series from worst to best

These are not good times to be a Deus X fan. This cyberpunk series with its Sobian color has gone into hibernation and we haven't heard from it since the last version, Mankind Divided, was released 6 years ago, and Square Enix seems to be determined to lead Marvel's Avengers in the worst possible way. So it might be a while before Adam Jensen dons his cyber goggles and raincoat again and starts hacking cameras and slaughtering enemies, even though it's owned by Embracer today.

Since seven games in With the Deus X series to choose from (depending on how you define "game" for this series), it's not easy to jump right in and know where to start with this sci-fi series.

So what better way to rank this whole series in a straightforward list? It is very interesting that a relatively first-class collection (AAA) but its weak versions are really few and its high-quality versions have become symbols of giants among gamers, which everyone should naturally experience.

Reactions to Deus Ex: Breach have been mixed with anger, outrage, and even confusion. Since the Breach mode was, for many, one of the less appealing parts of Mankind Divided, it was strange that Square Enix/Idas Montreal decided to dedicate a version of the game to this less well-known mode.

Breach Located in the virtual world of the Neural SubNet, where a hacker communicates with other hackers, a breach has been created in the Palisade Bank database. Now hackers should take advantage of this situation and extract the data while there is a chance. The premise of the game is so weird and confusing that it never fits, especially when you have to spend real money to get ammo [in-app purchases].

Breach was released as a standalone game on January 24, 2017. According to the Steam tables, this game usually does not have more than three to four online players, and in the best case, no more than 84 people were present in it. It doesn't look like Fortnite numbers.

Deos X series never surrendered to this console and that PC. Fal's version was flexible enough to bring the cyberpunk world of the series to the small screens of phones, and again the elements of stealth, first-person shooter and role-playing come together in a relatively good single-player game.

Fal basically had the same features as The fans of this series expected it. Again we see the same illuminati groups doing evil behind the scenes and we have a cyberpunk future where organic body parts are replaced with artificial ones and the divide between humans in a decaying society widens. Of course, everything looks good, but there is nothing innovative or special.

However, the reaction to Fal was not warm (although the iOS version was much more praised than the PC version). This game has everything Deus X should have, so it was praised by critics. But the bugs, the not-so-handy control and the story below average were considered as the weak points of the game and that in these areas it could not meet the standards of Deus Ex Go.

Just as Deus Xs are not necessarily exclusive to consoles or PC, so not necessarily all versions of this series need to be a combination of stealth, first-person shooter, role-playing and have a skill branch. Deus X Go, a spin-off from the original series, brings Adam Jensen to the world of turn-based puzzle games to shine and scream again. This version turned out to be surprisingly successful.

Like other Square Enix turn-based puzzles, including Hitman Go and Lara Croft Go, the player here is tasked with tapping his phone to defeat the tough, always bespectacled Adam Jensen. Move the environment that is similar to board games without hitting obstacles and enemies and of course take advantage of the useful instructions of the environment. Like other Deus Exes, Adam here can hack objects, terminals and other things in the environment to go through different stages. It matches very well with this style and was praised by critics at the time of its release. It's never going to rank as the best Deus Ex, but it does the job right.

Next to the North American version of Megaman, this game has one of the worst cover art possible. However, Invisible War is a really good game in the canon of the series.

Chronologically, this version is ahead of the curve, taking the player to 2072, where secret organizations and conspiracies take place. are managed from behind the curtain and all individual freedoms have been subjugated to the will of the government. Although it seems ridiculous on paper, the sequel to the first Deus X was praised for its satisfying narrative and professional voice acting (in years when its contemporaries were as disastrous as Resident Evil).

At the time, too. This version inherited many of the features of the previous Deus X, which had fascinated players; such as giving choice and high freedom of action and the ability to upgrade body parts with the help of biotechnological means. However, problems such as bad artificial intelligence and chaotic behavior of enemies and frame drops and technical problems in the Xbox version made Invisible War always feel the heavy shadow of the previous Deus X on its head. Invisible War is not a great version, but it is finally very good.

The latest version of Deos X released so far, right Like its name, Mankind Divided, created the greatest division among fans. Human Revolution, the previous version, planted a seed that blossomed in the narrative of Mankind Divided, and we see how biomechanical technologies bring the difference between the supporters of transhumanism and its opponents to the highest tension.

This difference is an interesting background for the action game. It creates that there is always a plan and conspiracy going on behind the scenes and you can't be at ease about anything. Additionally, the game features a futuristic rendering of Prague that is perhaps the best of its kind yet. The obsolete settlements that are placed next to the most advanced technologies have a sense of beautiful contrast and are completely different from other games that usually only know how to copy New York, London or other American cities.

Mankind Divided, of course, had its own problems and Even before players played the game for the first time, it appeared disappointing, as the rewards they were given for pre-purchasing the game were structured disastrously. Also, the incomplete ending of the game created the rumor that Idas Montreal removed the actual ending of the game to use it in the next versions to fix the story holes of the game. It was not a move that the fans liked.

However, Mankind Divided showed high quality. But this wonderful experience could not shine in the real sense because the greed of the company did not allow it to be offered as a complete package with its real end. At the time of its release, it was treated coldly and the sales did not suffer much. From this point of view, Mankind Divided may be included in the list of games whose true value was not recognized.

Deus Ex game

The first version of Deus Ex is still known as a masterpiece that brought PC gaming into the 21st century with its highly polished and creative gameplay. However, we have an inescapable reality: as the industry moves forward at such a rapid pace, even its history-making first-person shooter seems a little stale today. Of course, Deus X is still amazing, huge, and extremely important in the history of immersive sims, but exhuming a game this old still seems a little disappointing.

Deus X, set in 2052 is in the middle of the timeline (which keeps moving back and forth throughout the series) and is relatively futuristic. Many of the big themes of the series, such as the interventions of big governments with long and massive surveillance and control apparatus, and the replacement of body parts with technology, are accepted as soft in this version. Although in this version we don't see Adam Jensen and that guy smoking cigarettes in orange rooms, but the first version of Deus X proved that games, along with movies, series and literature, can deal with sensitive and big issues. Additionally, Deus X1 benefits from JC Denton's starring role, as he made nighttime sunglasses fashionable long before Adam Jensen. Of course, technically, after him [because the events of Deus X 1's story are after Human Revolution]. Prequels are always confusing.

In short, Deus X paved the way for games to become more mature, three-dimensional, and ultimately more satisfying than ever before, and it's still a masterpiece of design for modern audiences. Deus X not only paved the way for the next great versions of itself, but also became a source of general inspiration for other shooters. In this sense, the industry owes a lot to this outstanding game of 2000.

Human Revolution deserves to be at the top of all Deus Exes.

Released in 2011 and set in 2027, Human Revolution is still visually and mechanically Complies with modern standards. It both marks the first appearance of many of the series' key themes and introduces the series' most iconic character: Adam Jensen's "I never asked for this: Adam Jensen's famous quote that became an internet meme." In the series' timeline, Human Revolution predates all of the releases, so many of the series' themes are rooted in this release, while also putting his own signature on them as an introduction to a new generation of console gamers. consoles released at the same time].

Human Revolution triumphantly blends the superstructure and the underworld, becoming one of the first games in the series to masterfully showcase the cyberpunk visual style at its best. The dark and black environments, along with the environments that are all golden and orange, have given the game a very special look and have been able to immerse the players in a world that is as beautiful as it is cruel and dark at the same time. The Director's Cut version in 2013 also fixed some of the previous annoying bugs to take Human Revolution to a higher level; For example, the artificial intelligence was improved and the lighting improved. Although the third Deus X might seem immature and raw with so many different combinations, it ended up being one of the greatest games of the 7th generation consoles and the honor of the best Deus X of all time.
