The genre blending mix of first-person shooter action and non-linear, interactive story development helped to win Deus Ex the honor of being named 2000's Game of the Year by more than a few online and printed gaming magazines. Those who missed this title the first time around get another chance with this special reissue of the critically acclaimed adventure.
In addition to the latest "patched" version of the game, Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition offers a few new features. Although the original game was designed to provide a deep, engaging single-player experience, many gamers bemoaned its lack of any multiplayer support. This reissue "corrects" that omission by adding multiplayer capability and it also includes a design kit that allows players to create their own multiplayer levels and arenas.
