Deus Ex, Godhand on PS3
To cut a long story short (involving, to my shame, not being able to wait for the European release of Madden), I have 50 bucks to spend in the US PS3 Store.

Rummaging around in there, I see Deus Ex for PS3, and God Hand. Just wondering if anyone had any opinions on how these will play on PS3 and whether I should get them (have dabbled with DE on PC, played 1st level, never played God Hand).

Or is there something else in there I should spend my 50 bucks on?

Re: Deus Ex, Godhand on PS3
Do you mean the recent Deus Ex, or the original which was ported overto the PS2?

Godhand is a great game. Like a bizarre mix of old scrolling beat 'em ups (Streets of Rage, etc, except much deeper), but with the perspective of a more modern third person shooter. And a bizarre, over-the-top sense of humour, not to mention rock hard. Unfortunately I bought it right before my last PS2 broke, but it would definitely make it into my top ten PS2 games list. Don't know how well it's aged, however. I think you'd enjoy it.

If it's the original Deus Ex, rather play it on PC where you also get high-res-texture mods. As good as the game may be, in terms of graphics it has aged very, very poorly.

Thanks for the replies, guys.

Yes, it is the original Deus Ex. What Li-Ion says makes a lot of sense.

Cheers for the good feedback on Godhand, JLB. I guess I will have to gird my loins and jump into it.

Re: Deus Ex, Godhand on PS3
The original Deus Ex is definitely still worth a play, but I'd do as Li-Ion suggests and play it on PC due to the mods (never actually bothered with mods for it myself, however). It takes a while to get good, though- I'd suggest playing at least a few hours before making your mind up on it, as the first couple of missions are tedious.

Let us know what you make of Godhand, it's definitely a refreshing change from the norm!

Will do, it may be a while before I get it. I seem to suddenly have a tonne of unfinished games on the go. For some reason I have turned into someone who wants to finish every game he starts, unless it is terrible.
