    Sounds pretty damn good to me! If they can lend even 10% of their FMV skills it'll be win. :D

    It also sounds like they're pretty enthusiastic about making the game as good as possible, not just chopping it up into a console port like #2 (although the actual game was still pretty respectable, it just wasn't DE to me).

    I'm very hopeful that this will be able to hold a candle to the original. With Square-Enix doing the movies (awesome) and development focused ONLY on the pc (super awesome) and the fact that Eidos seems to be taking its time to get it right means this has a chance to be good. Do it well and you have my money eidos+square!

    I am praying to every god I can find that this game is at least close to as good as the first one.

    This ^^, is fundamental to my (albeit veiled in cynicism) excitement about this announcement. I don't need it to be as good as the original. IMHO it would be difficult to replicate the classic status of the original. I just would like a game to look forward to and really enjoy and a 24hr playing time would be nice. All the console bollocks of the last couple of years has not endeared itself to me.

    Great! Now you will be able to fire missiles through your eyes be means of augumentation in Deus Ex, and in thief you will carry a saw sword that is double you size wich you'll be able to throw and make an entire castle fall apart. Untill of course you find a boss that is related to you somehow that have a sword two times bigger than yours that can end the world if it falls on the floor.
    All this because you didn't find the ULTIMATE BAD BOSS that is ten times worst...

    In THAT game. Wait to see the next one!

    Have you noticed I hate manga cliches?...

    Off course we're all going to go out and buy five copies each regardless of how good a game it is just to prove the PC exclusives are viable as a platform.... I'll stick my £200 quid aside now

    Hope that it'll be good.

    Fear that it won't.

    Yup.

    Deus Ex is one of the few names left out there which gets my stupid unthinking blind loyalty. I'd buy it just on the off chance that it's anywhere near as Deus Ex 1. I suspect we're looking at somewhere between DX1 and DX:IW level of awesomeness, but I suppose that's a bit like saying it's going to be somewhere between heaven and hell.

    Hmm? I'm really unsure what she means by this? Square-Enix have made loads of non-Final Fantasy games...

    probably referring to the specific team that is working with them rather than square-enix as a company.

    i heard the first deux ex was a classic but sequel not so good, I've not played either, are they still playable?
    some games just don't age well but some like dugeon keeper 2 are timeless
