is a First-Person Shooter
game for the PS2
and PC, developed by Crystal Dynamics and published by Eidos Interactive
in 2004. It was originally going to be the third game in the Deus Ex
series, Deus Ex: Clan Wars
but when Deus Ex: Invisible War
didn't fare well with its release, it was decided that Clan Wars
should be a Spiritual Successor
to Deus Ex
, set in its own universe. The game shares Deus Ex's First-Person Shooter
gameplay and Twenty Minutes into the Future
setting but lacks the Stealth-Based Game
and RPG Elements
In 2065, Hong Kong is attacked by a force known as The Republic led by Yan Lo, a rogue Chinese general. The Liberty Coalition, an international peacekeeping force, respond to this, and 2nd Lieutenant Nathan Frost is injured in battle. To save his life, the Coalition use experimental nanotechnology, making him a 'Scarecrow', granting him nano-tech-based abilities, Augmentations. With his new powers, it's up to Frost and his force to stop Yan Lo before he can launch his operation, Project: Snowblind.
This game provides examples of:
- The Dung Ages: The aim of Project: Snowblind - Yan Lo wants to detonate electromagnetic pulses in New York, Hong Kong and Paris in order to do this.
- Killed Off Screen: General Cho Lao.
- With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: The result of earlier nano-technology being applied to Yan Lo twenty years ago, causing him to see technology as something that weakens mankind, hence Project: Snowblind.
