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.'" (Deus Ex, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, PC)

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.

I forgot about Deus Ex 3 but takin away wot made the original such a great game is a bit of a lame move

Lol you just made that account to reply here?
JCDenton  +   2222d ago
No, my account is about 2 years old... ;)
thor  +   2222d ago
So I see ;)
Lord Shuhei Yoshida  +   2222d ago
I actually liked part 2 more than 1 but from the sounds of their development,it looks like they are abandoning the series uniqueness in the hopes of dumbing down the third game.
JCDenton  +   2222d ago
God dammit!

However this might sound, the consoles are to blame for dumbing down great games such as this! That's what happened to the DX:IW, and that's what probably is going to happen to DX3. Those companies does not care or respect old/hardcore fans or franchises, the MONEY is all they care. Just like in the movie industry...

Oh great!
Oh no. Project Snowblind 2.
yog-sothot  +   2222d ago
the designer should shut up. Until he brings a game that - at least - equals the amazing first title of the serie, I don't know why his criticism should have more value than the one of average joe

Translation - "Deus Ex was a unique and amazing game. We want to turn it into a generic shooter because we think that's what the idiot masses want."

They better not turn it into a stereo-typical generic shooter franchise
I still own my ps2 copy of Deus Ex and that game totally dropped my jaw multiple times when I first played it. I never knew a FPS with RPG elements could be done so well.

I guess it could be considered as a somewhat "slow" game, but thats what you get when you have a game with such a huge plot and multiple story archs. I loved every second of that game.

I loved it
The game was perfect the atmosphere is amazing..
Played it on the Xbox1

Another proof that Deus Ex 3 will suck and won't even come close to the disappointing Deus Ex 2 let alone the legendary original Deus Ex.
