Deus Ex was "Kinda Slow" Says Deus Ex 3 Dev

Edge writes: "Deus Ex 3 lead game designer Jean-Francois Dugas has been telling Edge about how the game will differentiate from its predecessors.

In an interview with Edge magazine, published tomorrow, Dugas says the original Deus Ex was "kind of slow". He added, "There weren't enough exciting, memorable moments. It was aimed more towards a simulation rather than a game experience.'"

One of the best things about Deus-Ex was the localised damage. The other thing was the multiple storylines.

Deus-Ex 2 ruined the game by introducing "Universal Ammo" - lame - stripping the game of its localised damage and allowing you to change story path right at the end of the game, no matter what you'd done up to that point.

The next game is going to turn into a generic shooter it seems.

That headline isn't a good sign of this game's direction.

Absolutely agree. They seem to love ruining these vaunted titles. Sometimes the way they rape these classic games is every bit as bad as Hollywood thinking every movie needs a remake. If you can't properly pay homage to a classic then leave it the hell alone. JC is probably rolling over in his grave right now.

Oh yeah speaking of Hollywood remakes this reminds me EXACTLY of a film they remade - The Italian Job.

The original film was a British comedy - it was an hillarious "that'll never work" type film. There was something about the humour that really appealed to me. It had its little quirks everywhere and it's different from most films out there.

Then they remade it. Most of the film didn't even take place in Italy, there was a really serious tone to the film, they threw in love interests and such, and focused on the action. Forgetting what made the original film great, they just thought they'd add in a Mini chase so they could name it after the original film. It was awful.

Deus Ex was a fantastic, original game that had its little quirks everywhere making it different from most games out there.

Deus Ex 3 will focus on the action, forgetting what made the original game great, and will keep a couple of the characters and features so that they can name it after the original game. It's going to be awful.

Here's hoping not, though.
