Steam Sale: Deus Ex PC Games for $2.50 Each

Deus Ex is one of the very best genre-blending games of all time, which combined the immersion of a first-person shooter with the depth of a role-playing game.

The sequel, while not as hardcore as the original, still held elements that made the first one great. It was a distillation of first of the series, and it's still worth playing if you want to be fully prepared before the third game launches later this year.

Steam is having a sale that'll be on until the end of Thursday, April 22, where Dues Ex and Deus Ex: Invisible War are $2.50 each. For just a fiver, you can get some excellent, solid PC gaming ready for the weekend – even if it's a trip down memory lane.

Hit up the Steam store here.

    You didn't mention the launch of "The misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom" for 4.99, shame on you.

  • The first Deus Ex is one of the finest games ever made. Probably the best soundtrack for a game as well. The second one, while not as good as the first, still had a very good plot. Damn you Xbox port!

    I just downloaded both of these games for £3. That's well worth it.

    My roommate in college loved Deus-Ex, but his Riva TNT and AMD K-6 couldn't handle the game. But for that matter, my Athlon 900MHz and GeForce2 GTS could barely handle it either. It was very poorly coded. They fixed it in a patch if I recall, and I have no doubt my current rig can run it, but I was disappointed that such a good game was crippled by such poor graphics handling.

    I was also disappointed when I installed my free copy of Thief 2 AFTER I played Deus-Ex, and found out the gameplay was nearly identical (Thief just didn't have automatic weapons). I'm not sure why Deus-Ex got such better reviews when it played the same as the older Thief series.

    Either way, I'll have to pick this up.

    Your room mate and you needed to run the game in Glide mode... on a Voodoo 3000 or better, it was smooth as butter on my 5500. Ahhh good old Glide in some ways I still miss it, not sure what the magic fairy juice was in the driver or the hardware but there was something in it. Maybe it was my rose tinted glasses they say time tends to make things better then they actually where. lol

    I was wondering if I should get this, the game is from like 2000. I remember playing the 'amazing' Half-Life one, but the immersion was ruined substantially by the graphics. I'm not saying graphics are everything, it's that I missed it the first time around, making that 'connection' to the past (that makes it awesome) non-existent. Wondering if the same would happen here.

    The first one was classic gritty dystopia sci-fi, whereas the second one was much more of a simple futuristic shooter. If you only play one of these, play the first (altho the graphics are downright paleolithic compared to modern games). I still remember the quotes from each of the three endings by heart. Superdork-- I know.
