Developer: Eidos Montreal
Publisher: Square Enix
How can you follow a game like Deus Ex? Invisible War failed to satisfy our expectations despite actually being a capable game in its own right, leaving us to wonder if the original could ever successfully be complemented by a sequel. After all, it's probably the best game ever made. Eidos Montreal, however, made the brave decision to develop a prequel and a stylistic reboot to the series - and as it turns out, the decision has paid off with one of the finest games you'll play this generation.
After security consultant Adam Jensen's company is attacked by a mysterious group of cyborg commandos, the reluctantly augmented hero is catapulted into a dystopian web of conspiracy, corporate espionage, paranoia and the far-reaching implications of human augmentation. Shades of grey and no clear boundary between good and evil define the experience, resulting in a thrilling mature narrative that's packed with revelations and fragile alliances.
