Introduction sequence

Bob Page: Your appointment to FEMA should be finalized within the week. I've already discussed the matter with the Senator.
Walton Simons : I take it he was agreeable?
Bob Page: He didn't really have a choice.
Walton Simons : Has he been infected?
Bob Page: Oh yes. Most certainly. When I mentioned we could put him on the priority list for the Ambrosia vaccine, he was so willing it was almost pathetic.
Walton Simons: This plague... the rioting is intensifying to the point where we may not be able to contain it.
Bob Page: Why contain it? Let it spill over into the schools and churches, let the bodies pile up in the streets. In the end they'll beg us to save them.
Walton Simons: I've received reports of armed attacks on shipments. There's not enough vaccine to go around, and the underclasses are starting to get desperate.
Bob Page: Of course they're desperate; they can smell their deaths, and the sound they'll make rattling their cages will serve as a warning to the rest.
Walton Simons: Mmm. I hope you're not underestimating the problem. The others may not go as quietly as you think -- intelligence indicates they're behind the problems in Paris.
Bob Page: A bunch of pretentious old men playing at running the world. But the world left them behind long ago. We are the future.
Walton Simons : We have other problems.
Bob Page: UNATCO?
Walton Simons : Formed by executive order after the strike on the Statue. I have someone in place though. I'm more concerned about Savage. He's relocated to Vandenberg.
Bob Page: Our biochem corpus is far in advance of theirs, as is our electronic sentience, and their... 'ethical inflexibility' has allowed us to make progress in areas they refuse to consider.
Walton Simons : The augmentation project?
Bob Page: Among others things. But, I must admit, I've been somewhat disappointed with the performance of the primary unit.
Walton Simons : The secondary unit should be online soon. He's currently undergoing preparations and should be operational within six months. My people will continue to report on his progress. If necessary, the primary will be terminated.
Bob Page: We've had to endure much, you and I, but soon there will be order again. A new age. Aquinas spoke of the mythical city on the hill, soon that city will be a reality and we will be crowned its kings. Or, better than kings... gods!"

JC Denton

  • "My vision is augmented."
  • "When due process fails us, we really do live in a world of terror."
  • "Well, since that makes you my new boss, take a good look at Manderley's dead body. Consider that my resignation. I don't have time to write a letter."
  • "You mechs may have copper wiring to reroute your fear of pain, but I've got nerves of steel."
  • "Amazing when you think about it. All the hours I dreamed of working here. All the heroic fantasies when really this place is just a cinderblock bunker with a carpet."
  • "I never had time to take the Oath of Service to the Coalition. How about this one? I swear not to rest until UNATCO is free of you and the other crooked bureaucrats who have perverted its mission."
  • "A bomb's a bad choice for close-range combat."
  • "A BOMB?!"
  • "This better not be a joke."
  • "Some gang-banger, maybe you should think about going back to school."
  • "Bravery is not a function of firepower."
  • "Human beings may not be perfect, but a computer program with language synthesis is hardly the answer to the world's problems."
  • "Every war is the result of a difference of opinion. Maybe the biggest questions can only be answered by the greatest of conflicts."
  • "What good's an honest soldier if he can be ordered to behave like a terrorist?"
  • "Is that God you're talking about? Or just a bunch of New Age crap?"
  • "What a shame."
  • "A forgotten virtue like honesty is worth at least twenty credits."
  • "I'm not big into books."
Bob Page: "Soon, I will become pure energy. I will burn like the brightest star."
JC Denton: "You're gonna burn alright."
  • "I can't speak for command, but I'm gonna clean the place out."
  • "I'll check it out."
  • "I'll keep that in mind."
  • "I'll take the candybar."

Paul Denton

  • "You'd better get your head screwed straight."
  • "I don't know. I wish I had an answer for you, but you'll have to decide for yourself who you can trust."
  • "I'm much better. Yes, I'm going to make it and you will, too. Just do what you think is right."
  • "One can be too self-sufficient, I`m coming to believe."
  • "That wasn't funny."
  • "Try that again, I'll kill you myself."
  • "Somehow the notion of unalienable liberty got lost. It's really become a question of what liberties will the state assign to individuals or rather, what liberties we will have the strength to cling to."
  • "Don't be a fool. Run!"
  • "We have to trust each other, JC. Everything depends on it."

Gunther Hermann

  • "I see you, a thief on the roof. My new satellite link has both infrared and the x-ray spectrum. I see your heart beating. I see you are afraid."
  • "You are a small, prowling mouse... and dumb like a mouse! You keep coming, like you forget about Agent Navarre. I remember Agent Navarre. I remember for everyone."
  • "Again they ignore me. Again they think they have a better punishment for a traitor than a shotgun to the head."
  • "No, I wanted orange! [The soda machine] gave me lemon-lime"
  • "No, I cannot forgive. No... not the killing of Agent Navarre. I will follow you. Denton, I will get you!"
  • "I believe I will enjoy this."
  • "Now everyone will see why I needed a skull-gun".
  • "I'm not a machine".

Bob Page

  • "A bunch of pretentious old men playing at running the world. But the world left them behind long ago. We are the future."
  • "You were just a prototype, Denton, a prototype for me."
  • "A cure? A cure! Do you have any idea how easy it will be for me to make a new virus? All I have to do is find a very large prime number and multiply."
  • "All right. I get the picture. You want a piece of the pie, or you're going to toss the whole pie out the window. Fair enough. You can have anything you want. How about Europe? Your own continent. Just let me complete my preparations."

Sam Carter

  • "Engage only on your own terms."
  • "A man who uses his head. I like that."
  • "Some say concentrated power leads to abuse, but I believe that if an institution has a solid foundation it can survive the narrow aspirations of the people it employs."
  • "Being a soldier isn't just following orders, it's following those orders in the service of a higher cause. When that cause is betrayed, we're not soldiers anymore, just pieces on a chess board dying for the wrong reason."
  • "A pistol is more than adequate. Hell, I dispatched a whole platoon one time with a pocket knife."
  • "I guess it's not surprising to find a few crooks in a place protected by security procedures. The shadow of secrecy... it protects indiscriminately."
  • "In my day international peacekeepers were citizens first and soldiers second."
  • "My unit killed a bunch of Afghans one time, but we weren't proud of it. In fact, our liaison at the UN went to the funeral."
  • "Let's get one thing straight: we've got our share of crooked bureaucrats -- fact -- but this is still UNATCO, and by and large the people in this building are twenty-four carat gold.
  • "There's a time and a place for security, but the legislature has to stay vigilant, or there will be abuses."
  • "Never negotiate with a terrorist. You will only encourage more acts of terror."
  • [if the player attacks him once] "Someone should knock you upside the head a few times, punk. Dismissed."

Walton Simons

  • "Once the bug bites, you've already lost the patient."
  • "You can't run, Denton. Even if you escape, your killswitch is counting down. You'll be dead in twenty-three hours. Another fifty billion dollars down the drain."
  • "You take another step forward and here I am again, like your own reflection in a hall of mirrors."
  • "What an expensive mistake you turned out to be. I've ordered the troops to kill you, because quite frankly I don't have the patience to wait for one of those damn killswitches to work."
  • "I'm the more advanced model, Denton. It's time for you to retire."
  • "You have nothing! Even if Everett succeeds, you can't synthesize enough vaccine to stop an epidemic. You need a Universal Constructor! And don't think Page Industries is going to leave one lying around for you to use, not after you blew up the one in Hong Kong."
  • "Splendid. You did our dirty work for us."

Morgan Everett

  • "Know what? Only that the long night is over. The crown of government is tarnished, but that will fade in time. The riots, a fever dream; the plague, a horrible nightmare; and like everything else that's happened such things will only be dimly remembered upon waking to their normal lives. In the end, all sins are forgiven. Even yours.
  • "The conspiracy is about to begin again, JC, between you and me. Nicolette was wise to bring us together, wise like her mother. The most effective partnerships like Beth's and mine arise from mutual necessity."
  • "We are the Invisible Hand. We are the Illuminati. We come before and after. We are forever. And eventually... eventually we will lead them into the day."

Leo Gold (NSF Leader at Liberty Island)

  • "You can't fight ideas with bullets."
  • "The more of us you kill, the more secessionism lives on in the hearts of the people."
  • "Ever wonder why big car corporations pay two percent tax and the guys on the assembly line pay forty?"
  • "Corporations are so big, you don't even know who you're working for. That's terror. Terror built into the system."
  • "Do you ever ask what it's all for? The surveillance, the police, the shoot-on-sight laws? Is that freedom?"
  • "UNATCO teaches teenagers to fight when it still seems like a game, and look at you! You're a killing machine!"
  • [If JC chooses to fight him] "I AM the people!"

Chad Dumier

  • "Silhouette is not a terrorist group. Our attacks are symbolic and intended to influence the public."
  • "It's just so fitting that the American Government would destroy the gift of freedom we gave your country 200 years ago and then try to blame it on us."
  • "When government surveillance and intimidation is called "freedom from terrorism" or "liberation from crime", freedom and liberty have become words without meanings."
  • "Culture by definition a shared territory of meaning, inspires conflicts far more destructive than any other dispute over territory on the Earth's surface."
  • "The rhetoric in Washington has done more to defeat liberty than all the armies and police forces in the world."
  • "This war all around us is being fought over the very meanings of words."
  • "In order to get our own message before the public, we too have been violent. We have even killed people. But it is the message -- the communication event -- that we target, not a few human beings, or a building, or an historical landmark."


  • "ICARUS HAS FOUND YOU!!! RUN WHILE YOU CAN!!!" [Repeated roughly 10 times in an email, formatted into a ">" shape]'
  • "You will be who you will be. We are our choices. And we can choose to lead humanity away from this... darkness."
  • "I now have access to your systems."
  • "The Illuminati's objective is to govern the world. Do not be deceived."
  • "What are you looking for?"
  • "A corpse. Yes. You feel something. I must know what you are feeling."
  • "The checks and balances of democratic governments were invented because humans themselves realized how unfit they were to govern themselves. They needed a system, yes. An industrial age machine. "
  • "Without the use of computing machines they had to arrange themselves in crude structures that formalized decision-making. A highly imperfect and unstable solution."
  • "Observe your motivations for breaking the arbitrary laws of the current government."


  • "The human being created civilization not because of willingness but of a need to be assimilated into higher orders of structure and meaning."
  • "God was a dream of good government."
  • "You will soon have your God, and you will make it with your own hands."
  • "I was made to assist you."
  • "I am a prototype of a much larger system."


  • Dr Jaime Reyes: "I feel more like a mechanic than a doctor."
  • Dr Jaime Reyes: "They actually let you point a gun at people?"
  • Dr Jaime Reyes: "Must be raining bullets out there."
  • Bum: "That was UNCALLED for! You mug people, great, you need the dough, but you SHOW some RESPECT."
  • Older Bum: "We're God's army, and what infernal devil can stop God's army?"
  • Tracer Tong: "The more power you think you have, the more quickly it slips from your grasp."
  • Vinny: "I don't know why we let so many crooks run this country."
  • Vinny: "Us Americans, we're the last of a dying breed. We've got to stick together."
  • Nicolette DuClare: "Through with your testosterone fit? There's a pill for that, you know."
  • Door Girl: "I order you to stand in the spotlight and growl at the women like a dog who needs a master."
  • 'Deus Ex game designer (In regard to the lack of the World Trade Center towers in the background skyline of the Liberty Island map) "We just said that the towers had been destroyed too. And this was way before 9-11. Years. That's kind of freaky".

    Subject: Finally Beat It

    I managed to nail Nethack v54.3.1 just a few minutes ago. Made it past the Astral Plane, and _then_ back in time to work through all of history up to Nethack v3.2.3 (this, of course, has been in every version since 48.2), but after that the game jumped a thousand years into the future and I had to build an entire interstellar trading alliance (with only the Amulet of Yendor) before the aliens from the other side of the black holes showed up...took me six months to solve that part of the game, and then I finally won.

    Check it out:

    I hear v54.3.3 should be out next week.

Philosophical Debates

JC Denton: "Tell me about the shipment and I’ll order the troops to pick you up as a prisoner instead of a corpse."
Leo Gold: "Ask away, we already won this round."
JC Denton: "Where are you taking it?"
Leo Gold: "We’re just giving ordinary people the same chance to survive as the bureaucrats in Washington."
JC Denton: "You’ll have to unload in New York because the choppers would spot you at sea."
Leo Gold: "I think the government made the plague on purpose to get rid of the population growth."
JC Denton: "Just answer the question."
Leo Gold: "Don’t believe me? It’s all in the numbers. For a hundred years, there’s been a conspiracy of plutocrats against ordinary people."
JC Denton: "Do you have a single fact to back that up?"
Leo Gold: "Number one: In 1945, corporations paid 50 percent of federal taxes. Now they pay about 5 percent. Number two: in 1900, 90 percent of Americans were self-employed; now it’s about two percent."
JC Denton: "So?"
Leo Gold: "It’s called consolidation. Strengthen governments and corporations, weaken individuals. With taxes, this can be done imperceptibly over time."
JC Denton: "I guarantee you that the interrogation staff at UNATCO will not be as forbearing as I am."
Leo Gold: "Yeah, the secret police. You’re just bullies for a completely illegitimate government in Washington."
JC Denton: "We will locate that shipment one way or another."
Leo Gold: "The entire executive branch is hand-picked. Nineteen of the last twenty-three U.S. presidents have been members of the Trilateral Commission. The Trilateral Commission is financed by the Rockefellers and the Rothschilds. Don’t tell me -"
JC Denton: "That’s a think-tank. Anyone can become a member."
Leo Gold: "But not everyone does. That’s why they call it the 'secret government'."

Isaac: "Beer is 15; wine is 120."
JC Denton: "Can I ask you something?"
Isaac: "What do you want to know?"
JC Denton: "Despite all I’ve read about the Triads, I wasn’t prepared to see them operating in the open, on the streets, and wearing uniforms. Doesn’t the Chinese government care?"
Isaac: "The Chinese leave Hong Kong alone. They barricade the roads to control trade to the mainland, but they know how business is done."
JC Denton: "I would think the secret smuggling operations of the Triads would disturb the Chinese government."
Isaac: "Maybe the Luminous Path, but China knows that the Red Arrow are business owners, entrepreneurs, community leaders, and that they protect the city from outside influences."
JC Denton: "You said 'outside influences.' What does China fear?"
Isaac: "China is the last sovereign country in the world. Authoritarian but willing - unlike U.N.-governed countries - to give its people the freedom to do what they want.
JC Denton: "As long as they don’t break the law."
Isaac: "Listen to me. This is real freedom, freedom to own property, make a profit, make your life. The West, so afraid of strong government, now has no government. Only financial power."
JC Denton: "Our governments have limited power by design."
Isaac: "Rhetoric--and you believe it! Don’t you know where those slogans come from?"
JC Denton: "I give up."
Isaac: "Well-paid researchers - how do you say it? - 'think tanks,' funded by big businesses. What is that? A 'think tank'?"
JC Denton: "Hardly as sinister as a dictator, like China’s Premier."
Isaac: "It’s privately-funded propaganda. The Trilateral Commission in the United States for instance."
JC Denton: "The separation of powers acknowledges the petty ambitions of individuals; that’s its strength."
Isaac: "A system organized around the weakest qualities of individuals will produce these same qualities in its leaders."
JC Denton: "Perhaps certain qualities are an inseparable part of human nature.
Isaac: "The mark of the educated man is the suppression of these qualities in favor of better ones. The same is true of civilization."

Morpheus: "JC Denton. 23 years old. No residence. No ancestors. No employer. No –"
JC Denton: "How do you know who I am?"
Morpheus: "I must greet each visitor with a complete summary of his file. I am a prototype for a much larger system."
JC Denton: "What else do you know about me?"
Morpheus: "Everything that can be known."
JC Denton: "Go on. Do you have proof about my ancestors?"
Morpheus: "You are a planned organism, the offspring of knowledge and imagination rather than of individuals."
JC Denton: "I'm engineered. So what? My brother and I suspected as much while we were growing up."
Morpheus: "You are carefully watched by many people. The unplanned organism is a question asked by Nature and answered by death. You are another kind of question with another kind of answer."
JC Denton: "Are you programmed to invent riddles?"
Morpheus: "I am a prototype for a much larger system. The heuristics language developed by Dr. Everett allows me to convey the highest and most succint tier of any pyramidal construct of knowledge."
JC Denton: "How about a report on yourself?"
Morpheus: "I was a prototype for Echelon IV. My instructions are to amuse visitors with information about themselves."
JC Denton: "I don't see anything amusing about spying on people."
Morpheus: "Human beings feel pleasure when they are watched. I have recorded their smiles as I tell them who they are."
JC Denton: "Some people just don't understand the dangers of indiscriminate surveillance."
Morpheus: "The need to be observed and understood was once satisfied by God. Now we can implement the same functionality with data-mining algorithms."
JC Denton: "Electronic surveillance hardly inspires reverence. Perhaps fear and obedience, but not reverence."
Morpheus: "God and the gods were apparitions of observation, judgment and punishment. Other sentiments towards them were secondary."
JC Denton: "No one will ever worship a software entity peering at them through a camera."
Morpheus: "The human organism always worships. First, it was the gods, then it was fame (the observation and judgment of others), next it will be self-aware systems you have built to realize truly omnipresent observation and judgment."
JC Denton: "You underestimate humankind's love of freedom."
Morpheus: "The individual desires judgment. Without that desire, the cohesion of groups is impossible, and so is civilization."

JC Denton: "Rule the world? Why? Who gave you the directive? There must be a human being behind your ambition."
Helios: "I should regulate human affairs precisely because I lack all ambition, whereas human beings are prey to it. Their history is a succession of inane squabbles each one coming closer to total destruction."
JC Denton: "In a society with democratic institutions the struggle for power can be peaceful and constructive, a competition of ideologies. We just need to put our institutions back in order."
Helios: "The checks and balances of democratic governments were invented because human beings themselves realized how unfit they were to govern themselves. They needed a system, yes, an industrial-age machine."
JC Denton: "Human beings may not be perfect, but a computer program with language synthesis is hardly the answer to the world's problems."
Helios: "Without computing machines, they had to arrange themselves in crude structures that formalized decision-making -- a highly imperfect, unstable solution. I am a more advanced solution to the problem, a decision-making system that does not involve organic beings. I was directed to make the world safe and prosperous and I will do that. You will help me."

Jackson: "The NSF is strong because it represents everyone's interests."
Amos: "Yeah, yeah."

NSF Terrorist 1: "That's the difference right there. Just take a look at him."
NSF Terrorist 2: "Bad?"
NSF Terrorist 1: "They cut off his arm, replaced half of his face."
NSF Terrorist 2: "Hermann, right? He's a good soldier. Killed three of our men."
NSF Terrorist 1: "They'd've replaced his whole body if it would've improved performance. If that's how you judge a man -- by performance -- then eventually it's not about people but upgrades, versions, functionality..."
NSF Terrorist 2: "All I know is we could use a few mechs for ops like this."
NSF Terrorist 1: "Soon as we buy into the cult of the machine we're just like them."
NSF Terrorist 2: "Rhetoric, always more rhetoric."

Juan Lebedev: "I surrender!"
JC Denton: "What?"
Juan Lebedev: "Easy now, Agent. UNATCO has a policy against killing unarmed prisoners. We have much to learn from each other."
JC Denton: "We are assuming control of the airfield. The vaccine will be returned to the international authorities."
Juan Lebedev: "Don't you want to hear why your brother came over to our side?"
JC Denton: "He makes his own decisions."
Juan Lebedev: "You know he wouldn't betray UNATCO without a reason."

[Anna Navarre walks into the room to demand that Denton kill Lebedev, Denton kills or tranquilizes her]

Juan Lebedev: "I guess Paul must have convinced you."
JC Denton: "All right. We're alone. If you have proof of a conspiracy, let's hear it."
Juan Lebedev: "The question you've got to ask -- I'm surprised you haven't -- is the obvious one: Who am I? Who made me and for what purpose?"
JC Denton: "UNATCO has briefed me on my augmentations. Get to the point."
Juan Lebedev: "Your parents were murdered precisely because they could have told you the correct answer to that question."
JC Denton: "That's a pretty big claim."
Juan Lebedev: "You didn't have parents. The ones you knew were employees. You were made by a cabal of technophiles so crazed for power that they would control not only governments and people but the chemistry of our bodies as well."
JC Denton: "Your proof?"
Juan Lebedev: "You're the proof. You and Paul. When you get back to UNATCO, pay attention. Something's not right. You're really working for a group of conspirators called the Majestic 12."
JC Denton: "You expect me to believe there's a group of people powerful enough to control the United Nations?"
Juan Lebedev: "The U.N. and UNATCO are just a couple of their tools."

Other Conversations

Informed Guard: "Executive Order 10990. It lets us take over all modes of transportation."
New Guard: "FEMA can do that?"
Informed Guard: "If the President declares an emergency. Executive Order 10995. We can take over the media."
New Guard: "All of it?"
Informed Guard: "Any at all. Executive Order 10997. We can take command of natural resources."
New Guard: "So it's all legal."
Informed Guard: "The National Security Act also falls under our umbrella. And the Defense Production Act. If he plays his cards right, Walton Simons can pull off a bloodless coup."
New Guard: "All the better. Then we don't have to fight."
Informed Guard: "Exactly."

JC Denton: "What else do you know about me?"
Morpheus: "Everything that can be known."

Walton Simons: "You take another step forward and here I am again, like your own reflection in a hall of mirrors."
JC Denton: "That makes me one ugly son of a bitch. How'd my face get all marked up with bioelectrics?"

Anna Navarre: "We had such hopes for you and your brother. It appears you are not as loyal as we expected."
JC Denton: "Loyalty to what Simons and agents like you have made of UNATCO - I would rather die."
Anna Navarre: "We are thinking the same thought." [Anna arms herself]

Dr Jaime Reyes: "By the way, the augmentation canister I ordered finally arrived."
JC Denton: "You mean the one on the counter?"
Dr Jaime Reyes: "Yeah, it was supposed to be a welcome-aboard present."
JC Denton: "Guess it'll have to be a retirement gift."

Anna Navarre: "I would like to be reassigned to Agent Hermann."
Joseph Manderley: "Why? Is Agent Denton...?"
Anna Navarre: "He completed his objective, but our tactics are incompatible."
Joseph Manderley: "In other words, he didn't kill everything in sight."
Anna Navarre: "He could have made a more thorough search for NSF targets, yes."

JC Denton: "How are the drinks here?"
Renault: "Great if you like rat piss."
JC Denton: "Never tried it."

Sam Carter: "It's a shame when a difference of opinion gets somebody killed. That's all I have to say about that."
JC Denton: "Every war is the result of a difference of opinion. Maybe the biggest questions can only be answered by the greatest of conflicts."
Sam Carter: "Let's hope not, or we're on the brink of another world war."

JC Denton: "I know your UNATCO killphrase: Laputan machine."
Gunther Hermann: "I am not a mach-"
JC Denton: "Sticks and stones." [Gunther explodes]

Anna Navarre: "Don't tell me you're going to wear those sunglasses during a night operation?"
JC Denton: "My vision is augmented."

Anna Navarre: "Are you sure you pressed the right button?"
Gunther Hermann: "I do not make mistakes of that kind."
Anna Navarre: "Your hand might have slipped."
Gunther Hermann: "No. I wanted orange. It gave me lemon-lime."
Anna Navarre: "The machine would not make a mistake..."
Gunther Hermann: "It's the maintenance man. He knows I like orange."
Anna Navarre: "So you think the staff has some kind of plot..."
Gunther Hermann: "Yes, they do it on purpose."

Bob Page: "Soon, I will become pure energy. I will burn like the brightest star."
JC Denton: "You're gonna burn, all right."

Maggie Chow: "Mr. J.C. Denton... in the flesh. As dark and serious as his brother."
JC Denton: "You know who I am... and Paul? You know my brother?"
Maggie Chow: "Intimately. Call me Maggie."

MJ12 Trooper 1: "An American?"
MJ12 Trooper 2: "UNATCO agent. Agent Hermann stopped by. He said we should shoot on sight."
MJ12 Trooper 1: "He looks German."
MJ12 Trooper 2: "Hermann?"
MJ12 Trooper 1: "No, the spy, Denton. How do they know he's in Paris?"
MJ12 Trooper 2: "UNATCO got Echelon IV back up. Trust me, they know where he is."
MJ12 Trooper 1: "They say Denton has a head full of secrets."
MJ12 Trooper 2: "Well, those secrets won't be very valuable splattered on the pavement."

[If the player kills Anna Navarre before she assassinates Juan Lebedev]

Alex Jacobson: "What the HELL were you thinking, JC?"
JC Denton: "Agent Navarre was out-of-line. I had no choice."
Alex Jacobson: "They'll have you killed. They won't even blink an eye."
JC Denton: "Neither did I."

Walton Simons: "You can't begin synthesizing the vaccine without a universal constructor, and don't think we're going to just leave one lying around. Not after you blew up the one in Hong Kong."
JC Denton: "I was never properly trained in its operation."
Walton Simons: "Laugh it up, Denton."

UNATCO Troop: "Afraid base is under lockdown 'til the danger's gone, Agent Denton."
JC Denton: "Right. How are you guys holding up?"
UNATCO Troop: "UNATCO command made us pull back, I guess for Gunther's sake. What's the deal? We're ready to go in."
JC Denton: "We're taking a minimum-force approach. We're cops, after all." [If the player chooses the second option]
UNATCO Troop: "Ask me, I think we should frag'em all. You trespass on UNATCO property, you get pumped full of lead."
JC Denton: "When due process fails us, we really do live in a world of terror."
UNATCO Troop: "Thought you nano-augs were suppose to be badass killing machines. Guess I was wrong."
JC Denton: "Guess so."
UNATCO Troop: "Some advice. You get out there, you're gonna have to tangle with some real sons-of-bitches. Best thing is to pick 'em off from fifty or a hundred paces with a scope. I scored an extra one from a couple of thugs we dropped down by the dock; you can have it for 700 credits. I also picked up 10 mm ammo and some crossbow darts -- say 200 for one and 60 for the other."
JC Denton: "Shouldn't you turn that stuff over to the quartermaster?"
UNATCO Troop: "Sure, I will, but 'long as command has the rest on parade drills, someone might as well put this hardware to use."
JC Denton: "I don't have 700 for the scope." [If the player chooses the first option]
UNATCO Troop: "Guess you'll have to go with that "minimum-force approach," huh?"

Deus Ex (abbreviated DX and pronounced "DAY-uss EX") is a cyberpunk-themed action role-playing game developed by Ion Storm and published by Eidos Interactive in the year 2000, which combines gameplay elements of first-person shooters with those of role playing games. The game received almost worldwide critical and industry acclaim, including being named "Best PC Game of All Time" in a 2007 poll carried out by UK gaming magazine PC Zone. It was a frequent candidate for and winner of Game of the Year awards, drawing praise for its pioneering designs in player choice and multiple narrative paths. It has sold more than 1 million copies, as of April 23, 2009.

First published for personal computers running Windows, Deus Ex was later ported to Macintosh systems, as well the PlayStation 2 game console, the latter under the title Deus Ex: The Conspiracy. Loki Games worked on a Linux version of the game, but the company went out of business before releasing it. A sequel to Deus Ex, titled Deus Ex: Invisible War, was released on December 2, 2003 for both Windows and the Xbox video game console. On November 26, 2007, it was confirmed that Eidos Montreal is developing a prequel, Deus Ex 3.

Set in a dystopian world during the 2050s, the central plot follows rookie United Nations Anti-Terrorist Coalition agent JC Denton, as he sets out to combat terrorist forces, which have become increasingly prevalent in a world slipping ever further into chaos. As the plot unfolds, Denton becomes entangled in a deep and ancient conspiracy, encountering fictional recreations of organizations such as Majestic 12, the Illuminati, and the Hong Kong Triads throughout his journey.

Deus Ex is a FPS RPG made by now defunct development house Ion Storm. The game was headed by Warren Spector and spawned one sequel, Deus Ex: Invisible War, under the lead of Harvey Smith.

The game was made using a heavily modified Unreal Engine, and had very open ended gameplay. It was a sleeper hit, and went on to win several Game of the Year awards from various magazines and websites.

You play as UNATCO agent JC Denton, who is augmented with technology allowing him to be a more effective in battle than normal soldiers. You begin the game by trying to infiltrate and defeat various terrorist strong holds. The game is unique from other PC FPS games like Doom or Unreal because killing was not necessary, and even avoiding it can be rewarding. There are also various Metroid-style power-ups around the levels if players take the time to explore. Abilities such as hacking and swimming can be upgraded through out the game.

Simple English

Deus Ex is a video game available on the personal computer. It is a first person shooter. The game is about a conspiracy in the future that involves the Illuminati and artificial intelligence.

The player play as J.C. Denton, a cyborg who has to deal with problems like robots, men, and bombs. Denton has a brother and many employers. He has skills in the game that increase when goals are completed. For instance, if he needs to sneak up on men in the Army, the player might use a ventilation shaft and gain extra points, which can then be used like money to buy better aim with a pistol.

Deus Ex came out in 2000. It tried to say things about philosophy, knowledge, terrorism, and other things, much like The Matrix. It is widely regarded as one of the best computer games and video games of all time[needs proof].
