The Ps2 port wasn't exactly great, still it's a good opportunity for Human Revolution fans who missed out on the original.

how was it not good? i would understand madden 2009 for ps2 vs madden 2009 for ps3 but this no way...

The PC version was a lot better, but the PS2 version was a very good port (I own both)

The (already poor) graphics actually looked worse on Ps2 and the control scheme had to be greatly simplified to work on controllers meaning alot of time is spent in menus rather than the game, It's still one of the best videogames ever made and it sounds like you never played it before so I'm sure you will enjoy the Ps2 version just fine

All of the levels in the PS2 version were split into multiple segments with loading screens in between, unlike the PC version which had large seamless levels. The loading times were a bit long too. The segmented design and constant loading screens is definitely the biggest downside, and after playing the PC version, it's hard to go back. The levels are pretty much exactly the same, but having a big seamless area is much more immersive.

Controls were also a bit weird. Graphics were worse. There were also some framerate issues.

Keep in mind though that my first completion of it was on the PS2, and even then I thought it was one of the best games I've ever played.

I've heard from Deus Ex fans that the graphics are actually IMPROVED (in some ways) on the PS2 port, due to it coming out 2 years later, and the PS2 being newer hardware at the time. The fact that the levels are split up due to RAM constrictions is a big downside, however.

damnit any word if this might make it to the US store? i absolutely love this game.

never got a chance to play the original Deus ex until it came out on PS2 back in the day. Poor port or not, it was awesome! and the reason I jumped into the entire series.
I actually wish they would do a remake of the original now that human revolution is out.

It was a very good port, they had to scale it back for the PS2 (Some areas are much smaller) but other than that it was still great :)

I'd love them to do a HD version, maybe even a remake with the DXHR engine :)
