It depends on what they're trying to convey.

It seems they're going for a very visual experience, and they're creating a mood and a setting - much like Blade Runner.

Now, I'm a big fan of Ridley Scott's visual aesthetic in films - and I think he's one of the best in the world at creating a strong atmosphere.

A game like Deus Ex - would be perfect for this, and if it's done right - I'll love immersing myself in such a world.

Naturally, gameplay is key - and it won't do anything if the game itself sucks. But, much like music, it can truly enhance the experience - as long as it's consistent and based on a strong vision. If they just slap it on to be "hip", that's another story. But something about the interviews I've read with them, tells me they really DO care about Deus Ex - and I think they're going to do a very good job.

Certainly better than Invisible War
