In the beginning, I've a positive feeling about Deus Ex, and I was eager to play Revision when I first heard about the mod, which even the designers of the game originally endorsed! While playing through the game I realized that despite the fact that I can recognize things, I'm not able to remember the way it looked and feels like. After I completed Revision I began playing in the initial Deus Ex and suddenly discovered that Revision not only altered the graphics however, it also made some noticeable balance adjustments. Therefore, I decided to compare notes about these changes and the impact they had on gameplay as well as the overall experience that the game offers. I'm hoping someone is attracted by this. It's worth noting that I'm not likely to talk what I've learned about the various changes but just those that caught my attention in the passage.
The game was played with the "Realism" difficultness, therefore the comparability will be based on it. Comparison 1.) the visual aspect. In reality, it is the first thing that catches the eye. It's been updated as are the levels and the models of objects, and characters. While new models of objects are generally nice however, this model for the characters named is quite heavy. Although you must give credit , but this modification is very adaptable and allows you to include or exclude new models at your discretion. It's only 1 of six pages. 2) Level design. When we talk about levels changing, here is where the changes aren't only ornamental. There are levels with totally different layouts. If you compare them with the original layout level, you will not think that this is the same area. In terms of the establishments. (eg Paris - Champs Elysees) Levels with an augmented layout. It's like the majority. The base is the location that was originally used, however it's expanded or upgraded. (eg New York - Hell's Kitchen). Levels that have an old layout. They are not different in layout, however there are some minor changes. (e.g. Liberty Island). This is also true for items that are located on the level. It is common to see the place of items has changed and some items were are removed, while certain items are included. It's also worth noting the fact that with Revision you can also add various secret locations, for your success you gain experience as well as useful items. If you are able to enter this house, you'll get a unique crowbar. But, a lot of the game can be misleading. O! There's certainly something in there. There's nothing there. If you go on the balcony, you will earn experience points, however there's nothing to do in the balcony itself.) The AI. Artificial Intelligence has increased significantly.
Alongside their ability to can shoot bolvanichiki more precisely and are less hurt, they also perceive and hear further, and also the area they are in has more of a view. This is good because in the first game, the enemy were blind kittens. But they don't have the ability to see the player's falls or jumps in crouch mode any more. They've even developed the ability to identify corpses, however, at some point while playing, I didn't see it. 4.) Game Logic. In the first Deus Ex I encountered a handful of instances when the game just doesn't appear to be working as it should. For instance the game can't tell the distinction between a dead enemy and one who is stunned. So, even if during the very first mission you were crawling around on your hands and slamming every opponent by truncheons You will be praised or even scolded for being so bloodthirsty , and leaving behind a heap of dead bodies. Another issue concerns saving our brother. If you try to assist Paul to fight the attack at the hotel, due to some reason , he'll be destroyed and disappear from our sights for a short period of time. This task was quite difficult since you must survive the gristmill, you also had to prevent the brother you love from going missing. In Revision these issues were solved to my delight. My brother was killed. 5) Skills, augmentations, items. All in one place since they are in close proximity. Augmentations Speed Enhancement. In reality, everything operates in the same manner, except for one minor detail: now in the sitting position , augmentation is not effective, and rapid movement of the legs in the form of a goose is no longer feasible. This means that the Sillent Run augmentation now makes sense. Agressive deffense system. As per the information,, this augments destroys enemy missiles as well as grenades upon approach to the player. However, it is also true that in the game's original version, this, augmentation also destroyed crossbow darts plasma projectiles, and sometimes (!) flamethrower fire. This when powered by low power, caused this to be awe-inspiring augmentation. The modification made this removed, so that currently, as per the description, there are only rockets and grenades are used. This means that an Energy Shield augmentation more relevant.
EMP shield. The original game has nearly useless enhancement, since there are a few scenarios in the gamewhere you must protect yourself from EMP. In particular, in this slot are increments that provide more effective effects. The effectiveness of the slot was slightly increased. In the first place, it's now an active augmentation, which means it's always on and doesn't consume energy. Furthermore, the worth of energy, in my view to be used in Revision has been increased. Having to use it due to the EMP harm isn't ideal. Thirdly, and this is the most unpleasant part plasma can now cause EMP damage, meaning it drains energy. Even if you are wearing Energy Shield, after a few hits with the plasma gun you'll be unable to sustain it. Power Recirculator. Now , it is active when other increments are activated and only when the total energy is lower. In addition, the window for augmentations shows the amount of energy each increment is going to consume including the circular recirculator. Handy. Synthetic Heart. The ranking of every increment by one. The original version was ugly, since it was extremely fast in consuming energy (in just a minute, it can eat all the energy available all by itself in the absence of any other augmentations, and that's not even considering that it worked alongside other enhancements) and also had a appealing alternative in the form that of an Energy Recirculator. In Revision it's inactive and doesn't use up energy, which boosts its utility several times over. Regeneration. The effectiveness of its cure was reduced by half when compared with the initial. It is still very effective. Items. Take note of the two major modifications: Energy Batteries now restore only 15% of the energy they used to produce instead of 25 percent. This is precisely why I mentioned the importance for energy during Revision. Chemical protection suits, camouflages, scuba tanks, etc. are now able to be removed at any time, making their energy more effectively. It is thought that this will make the ability more effective. The grenades on the straps of enemies explode in a flash if you've not made the investment in the skills explosives (weapon demolition). Therefore in the absence of a proper manual dexterity, disarming is now a major issue. 6) Lighting. I decided to place this in an entirely separate thread, since for me , it's an additional pain. It is true that there were in Deus Ex quite a lot of dark spots as well as in Revision the dark areas became more. It's also like the entire modification is darker, even though the brightness settings remain the identical. Battery Park. Left is the original and on the right is the Revision. To be clear, Deus Ex is one of the games where increasing the brightness doesn't increase visibility in darkness. The primary source of lighting the player is a hi-tech nano-enhanced (I think which one?) flashlight. However, JC boasts that he is able to see better and thus sees very well in darkness even wearing dark glasses however, we all know that.
The flashlight also wastes energy. It's the same energy that all our awesome augmentations rely on. Since this game can be dark you'll need to show it off a lot. Particularly if you're someone who likes to covert action and sneaking around in darkness of the ventilation shafts and dark corners. It's a fascinating situation when you're spending most of your time not taking advantage of steep increments rather than jogging in dark areas with flashlights. This is where you could say: "There must be some alternatives. There are. The first is that there's an eye augmentation which provides night vision (you can avail this feature at the end of 1/3 of the game and it consumes three times as much energy as the flashlight) Also, there are tech.goggles with the same result. Here's how they work. Standard vision night vision is there anything else you can add? Additionally, there are illumination cartridges, however they require spaces in your inventory, and their quantity is small and it is difficult to locate the cartridges. However, this issue isn't a major issue it doesn't put you with no hope however, it can be frustrating. In these situations, playing can be uncomfortable. Not difficult, but uncomfortable. To sum it up Overall, even with my issue with lighting, as well as other minor flaws the update left an extremely positive impression.
Revision doesn't just expand and visually improves the look of Deus Ex locations however, it adds a variety of mechanics into focus, adjusts the balance, corrects bugs and vulnerabilities. It's not even talking about the ability to customize the game's difficulty, along with additional modifications which allow you to design an challange that you like. I'd highly recommend this mod to anyone who enjoys Deus Ex. Deus Ex, but you're likely to have played it.
