** Its also true that the world was doing an awful lot better in 2027 then it is in 2052. It looks less advanced in the present because as far as most people are concerned; ''it is''.

* ArtisticLicenseMedicine: Ambrosia is stated to be a vaccine. It completely cures the recipient of Gray Death and provides them with immunity from it for the next two days, at which time they will be susceptible to it once again. That's not how vaccines work. Vaccines stimulate the immune system to provide [[AcquiredPoisonImmunity acquired immunity]], typically using a weaker form of the microbe that causes them. This immunity cannot wear off after two days and certainly can't be applied retroactively.

In the [[{{Dystopia}} dystopian]] [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture near]] [[{{Cyberpunk}} future]], a [[ThePlague deadly plague]] known as the [[{{Nanomachines}} Gray Death]] has befallen mankind. The only known "[[YouFailYourMedicalBoardsForever vaccine]]", Ambrosia, the distribution of which is tightly controlled by Orwellian government agencies, merely delays the inevitable. Terrorist groups are capitalizing on the increasing desperation of the common folk, and their increasing activity urges world governments to create the UsefulNotes/UnitedNations Anti-Terrorist Coalition (UNATCO). You follow [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic JC]] Denton, a [[NaiveNewcomer rookie]] [[ElitesAreMoreGlamorous elite]] UNATCO operative, who eventually becomes tangled in a conspiracy plot [[ConspiracyKitchenSink involving]] the [[AncientConspiracy Illuminati]], [[{{Chupacabra}} Chupacabras]], [[TheGreys Greys]], [[BlackHelicopter black helicopters]], genetic design [[ElaborateUndergroundBase underground labs]] and [[AIIsACrapshoot rogue AIs]].

* RealityEnsues: Non-augmented humans have realistic damage resistance, combat armor notwithstanding. This is particularly evident during a potential "boss battle" with Maggie Chow, who will engage in dialog with the player, then draw an energy sword and charge in. She's a normal human wearing nothing but a Chinese dress and, realistically, goes down with a single bullet to the head.

''Deus Ex'' is an award-winning FirstPersonShooter with RPGElements (or a first-person RPG with shooter elements, as some fans would argue) developed by Ion Storm Austin (A division of, yes, ''[[{{VideoGame/Daikatana}} that]]'' Ion Storm) and published by Eidos. It was released around the summer of [[TurnOfTheMillennium 2000]] for Windows and [[AppleMacintosh Macintosh]]. A PS2 port, titled ''Deus Ex: The Conspiracy'', was released in spring 2002. The PS2 version was made available on the PSN Store, as a PS2 Classic, on May 16, 2012 in Europe.

* SpoilerOpening: The opening cinematic not only identifies the BigBad and TheDragon and their current spheres of influence, but also that a certain woman in a dragon dress is affiliated with them, UNATCO has a puppet leader in place and the conspirators are investing in, amongst other things, an electronic sentience. The developers seemingly realised they were invoking this trope, as the intro for the later-released PS2 version of the game cuts out all of the spoilers mentioned except for the Big Bad and Dragon's identities.

** In fact a skilled (or [[SaveScumming dedicated]]) player could kill or incapacitate every guard except the invincible [[spoiler: Gunther]] and bots, and then use their [[SuperStrength augs]] to stack boxes up to to climb out of the area your locked into. After your escape your free to explore the rest of the area in peace...for as long as you want because the promised helicopter extraction never arrives.
