Are You Ready To Take The Fall?
Deus Ex: The Fall, an Android, iOS and PC game, is a sequel to the novel The Icarus Effect
, and a spin-off to the 2011 game Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
During the six months in which Adam Jensen from Human Revolution
was in rehab after the attack on Sarif Industries, The Fall
focuses on the main character from the Icarus Effect
novel, Ben Saxon. In March 2014, the game was re-released on PC.
This game provides examples of:
- Arbitrary Gun Power: Weapons in the game are weak unless you get a headshot or upgrade them. Even then, its better to save up for the alternate weapons in the shop and upgrade those, as they can be upgraded further than the default.
- Armor-Piercing Attack: The armor-piercing mod for the pistol returns.
- Booze-Based Buff: Much like in the original Deus Ex and Human Revolution.
- Boring, but Practical: Keeping in with the Deus Ex tradition, the pistol. Most enemies carry one for most of the game for free ammo, and ammo is cheaper than the rifle ammo if one needs to buy it.
- Coolest Club Ever: Nightshades club in Panama.
- Cosmetically Advanced Prequel: Compared to Deus Ex, set 25 years later.
- Dummied Out: Texture files hinting towards a New York City level, a Lower Hengsha level, and an Australia level. Since this game has been pitched to be episodic, it is unknown at the time of writing if it is cut content, or just textures in place for future installments. An album can be seen here.
- Everybody Smokes: Deconstructed, a line of news will mention that lung cancer is now on the rise.
- Interface Screw: Neuropozyne withdrawals will do this to Ben.
- Made of Iron: Even basic enemies can shrug off anything thats not a headshot. Including a point blank blast with a shotgun. This often results in being horribly murdered because the NPCs are able to shrug off damage, but you cant.
- The Mafiya: Saxon fights them at the beginning of the game.
- Taste Of Power: The tutorial mission allows the player to have the stealth aug for free. Afterwards, the player has to work up to get it back again.
- The Teaser: The game opens up with the tutorial mission through the Russian Mob hideout and Ben's defection from the Tyrants before the title sequence.
- Prequel: To Human Revolution as it takes place during the time Adam Jensen spends in recovery before the main events of the game, as well as to the original Deus Ex
- Whole Episode Flashback: The opening mission.
- Worst Aid: Increase your health by taking painkillers and alcohol! At the same time!
