I take it upon myself to write the ultimate guide for the ultimate FPS/RPG - Deus Ex: The Conspiracy. They said it couldn't be done. A port of Deus Ex to the PS2 was taken as ludicrous as MGS2 on the N64. ION Storm tackled the project anyway, defying the odds and putting together a remarkable port of its classic, Deus Ex, which I have been enjoying for quite some time now. Before playing, I highly recommend you playing through the training course because this game is like nothing you've ever played, and it's good to get the overall feel of it before jumping into the missions. I would also recommend you to take a look at my 'Survival Guide' section too, as it contains many valuable tidbits for you to successfully complete Deus Ex. As to the format, I will, for each level, describe each goal without a title. I will describe ALL of the goals, primary which are required, and secondary which are not. Note that secondary goals are not required, so if you do not want to do them, feel free to skip it, though I highly recommend you complete them as you gain more skill points. A brief and to-the-point intro, but I'm not one to add lots of filler. So, with that said, read on. ______ ________ _____ ______ | | 0000993 /// | | 00004000904 | | 0123000 | | ¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯¯ 2) Storyline ______ ________ _____ ______ | | 0000993 /// | | 00004000904 | | 0123000 | | ¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯¯ [This was NOT taken from the instruction book: I'm more original than that!] Civilization is near collapse. Divisions of hostility have been aggravated by the growing gap between rich and poor. While the rich are protected by anti- terrorist groups and are vaccinated with Ambrosia against the Gray Death, the disease ravaging the worlds population, the poor struggle to survive in the unprotected underworld, most succumbing to the worldwide epidemic or killed in the corrupt crossfires. UNATCO, the United Nations Anti-Terrorist Coalition based in New York, struggles to maintain order. Among other lesser known terrorist groups, a national coordinated organization known as the NSF only adds more burden to UNATCO's weight, constantly plotting against the 'free' world. In this game you'll play as a UNATCO operative named J.C. Denton, a nano- augmented creature borne by mechanical means. JC has a brother in the UNATCO, Paul Denton, an established and acclaimed agent which JC try's to live up to. Paul will play a critical role in the complex storyline, which will open the eyes of Paul's and millions of other people. In this game you'll question who really is your ally and who you're really fighting for. You'll question past alliances and present relationships. You'll question even your brother Paul as you search out and assimilate the terror and corruption which runs wild in the world. You won't know who to trust, who to turn to for answers. The only place in which answers can be found lie within decisions that you will make as your progress through the game. Good luck, your gonna need it. ______ ________ _____ ______ | | 0000993 /// | | 00004000904 | | 0123000 | | ¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯¯ 3) Weapons FAQ ______ ________ _____ ______ | | 0000993 /// | | 00004000904 | | 0123000 | | ¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯¯ ___________ \Riot prod \ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Usually used when putting to rest unruly civilians in riots (duh), the prod is a charged tranquilizer that knocks unconscious those who come into contact with it. Like the combat knife, it should only be used from behind. It is a great stealth weapon, and remember: discretion is the better part of valor, so don't be so quick to dismiss this as a puny toy. _______________ \ Combat knife \ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ A sharp hand-knife that is used for...well, you know. It draws a lot of blood and kills with one or two swipes. Another tool of the assasin. The problem however is getting close enough to the enemy to swipe; the only way to use it without being sed to the Stone Age is to come from behind, as with the above Riot Prod. ______________________ \ Dragons Tooth Sword \ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ A powerful sword, this is a black market weapon dealt to Hong Kong-based Triad members. The original prototype was stolen by Maggie Chow, a mercenary working for UNATCO. This also has a perty blue glow to it, if I do say so myself ;). Its got double the power of the normal sword, a good choice for taking out greasel or as a stealth weapon. _______________ \ Pepper Spray \ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ A small carbonated canister of pepper type which is sprayed into an aggressors eyes, temporarily paralyzing him/her because of the pain and irritation it causes. It wears off in about 5 seconds unless you continuously spray him/her. Don't just think you can spray someone and leave, without the victims remembrance. Put to rest your tranquil victims while you can. ________________________ \ Crossbow Tranquilizer \ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ A silent dart crossbow that attaches itself to your hand. When it hits someone, it knocks them unconscious after about 6 seconds or so of struggling and yelling. Another stealthy choice, but since it takes a while to take affect I recommend running away until the enemy drops. The darts have small range though, so you have to be somewhat close to your prey (hehe) to fire successfully. ______________ \ 10mm Pistol \ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ In most shooter games, the hand gun is stereotypically created as weak and useless compared to other the machine guns or rifle weapons. So it is in this game. It's weak, but this is what you will use in the beginning levels, whether you want to or not. It has slow firing rates and has a very short clip; its not a good option at all unless you have Advanced skills with it. _______________ \ Sniper Rifle \ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The sniper rifle is a personal fav; taking NSF and other enemies from a distance is a great time and health saver. Its main purpose is to use the scope to aim for the head of a far away enemy. Its scope zooms a good distance, but JC muscles tend to vibrate and move a little, not only adding to realism but making aiming a pain. On the more advanced skill levels, JC's muscles relax more and are still, but until then its like shooting on the run with Parkinson's disease. ____________________ \ Sawed Off Shotgun \ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Most of you know what this is and what it does. Firing buckshot rounds, it's not useful in hostage situation because of the wide damage range. Powerful but with surprisingly good range, but the problem is the firing rates. After every shot you have to pump. This can be deadly in fierce fire fights. _______ \ PS20 \ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ A small, rare stealth pistol which shoots a single plasma blast then disappears from your inventory. You can carry only one, so make sure you aim efficiently. It has moderate power; not helplessly weak but not LAW powerful. It can best used to knock down doors as well as break open paintings... __________________ \ Assault Shotgun \ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ This is the better of the two shotguns. It has almost no recoil and you don't have to pump it after every shot, while being as powerful and more accurate. My weapon of choice. ________________ \ Assault Rifle \ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Incredibly weak; it takes almost a full clip to bring the average NSF agent down. Average range, good recoil, and a fast firing clip can't make up for how weak it is. Its the only rapid firing weapon in the game, unfortunately. So if you intend to make use of this then be best sure that you have lots of accuracy mods and range mods. _______________ \ Plasma Rifle \ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ A heavy, experimental weapon which I'm not even going to try and explain as to how it works. It shoots green...stuff...that causes like, a lot of hurting, dude! No really. Its a formidable weapon which is a very useful alternative against security bots or other heavy hostile machinery, and it even can blow open locked doors. Its plasma rounds are VERY powerful against humans which aren't augmented; Its a great tool to eliminate karkian or greasel. Men in black and MJ12 commandos are immune to it, though. _______________ \ Flamethrower \ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ A large rifle that shoots fireball's a short distance, hence its name. Excellent choice for taking out large cluseters of close range enemies. Once an enemy is on fire, his fire cannot be put out no matter how much cursing and praying to the water gods they do, and they will all fall shortly. ______________ \ Gas Grenade \ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ When thrown, after a few seconds, it deotnates and releases tear gas. It temporarily blinds the enemies, as does the pepper spray gun. ____________________ \ Scrambler Grenade \ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ A special grenade, this one is to be primarily used against security bots. When detonated within the range of any mechanical enemy bot, the bot will turn against their allies making themselves allies with you and whatever friends you have. Very useful. ______________ \ EMP grenade \ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The EMP(electro-magnetic pulse) grenade emits a shockwave that paralyzes or terminates any computerized activity in the blast radius. Use it on trip wires or equipment that needs to be disabled. It has no affect on humans, though it does on your character, JC. It drains all his bio energy if he's caught in the blast. ______ \ LAM \ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Light anti-tank munition which is JC's worlds' version of a high-tech grenade. Used in LAW's but also can be thrown. Detonates after about 5 seconds, or when it comes into contact with a human or bot. ______________________________ \ LAW(light anti-tank) Weapon \ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Best used against machines (e.g. security bots), this, when fired, sets of a series of small explosions in wide circle, almost like 7 grenade explosions going off at once. It can only be used once, afterwards it disappears from your inventory. It has a VERY large blast range; get FAR out of the way of your target otherwise quite a bit of health will be tacked off. _______________________________________ \ GEP Gun(Guided Explosive Projectile) \ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ A fancy name for a plain old rocket launcher, this is best used against opposing security bots. Obviously not a short range weapon, the GEP takes a few seconds to lock on to a target then fires. A great use for the GEP is blowing open locked doors, which is a good saver of lockpicks, and helpful when your out of them. ______ ________ _____ ______ | | 0000993 /// | | 00004000904 | | 0123000 | | ¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯¯ 4) Enemy List ______ ________ _____ ______ | | 0000993 /// | | 00004000904 | | 0123000 | | ¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯¯ ***MAJOR*** SPOILERS AHEAD IN THIS SECTION--Read on at YOUR OWN RISK!!! NSF Agent Intelligence: Average First Appearance: Liberty Island Combat Strength: Weak Weapon of Choice: Tranq. darts or Assault Rifle The NSF Agents will be your primary target in the early goings of the game. They don't work together and have weak armor leaving them as easy pickings. They will try and trip an alarm if they see you, so take care of them quickly. Also, when hit enough times they will run away and call for backup (didn't I say they didn't work together? Well, here's an exception), so again, finish them quickly. UNATCO Operative Intelligence: Average First Appearance: Hell's Kitchen Combat Strength: Average Weapon of Choice: Assault Rifle When you turn against the UNATCO, Bob Page and Joseph Manderley will send out their henchman, the UNATCO agents after you. They also do not work together and would most likely take you one one-on-one rather then signal for help. Nothing special about them...accept their unusually ugly-looking faces. MJ12 Commando Intelligence: Average First Appearance: The VersaLife Building Combat Strength: Above Average Weapons of choice: Rockets Alright, here's where things start to get tricky. These guys aren't augmented, though they wear a black armor that makes them look and sound like an alien. It has BUILT IN GEP's in one of its arms, and a Assault Rifle built into its other arm, each with infinite ammo meaning it doesn't have to reload. It has excellent accuracy with both weapons, even from the longer distances. Because of its combat strength it's kinda hard to bring down, but a few shots to the head will always do it. Men in Black (MiB) Intelligence: Average First Appearance:Hell's Kitchen Combat Strength: Excellent Weapon of Choice: Dragons Tooth Sword/Assault Shotgun No, I'm not talking Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones MiB. I'm talking augmented, dragon-tooth-sword wielding, superhuman strength men in black. These guys are real pains in the ass, pure and simple. It takes THREE shots to the head, God knows how many shots to the chest, to bring them down. And what make's them even MORE annoying is the fact that that BLOW UP when they are killed, making close range combat nearly impossible. Stay away from these things; snipe them when necessary. Gray Intelligence: Above Average First Appearance: VersaLife Combat Strength: Weak Weapon of Choice: Claws and radiation The are little silvery aliens, whom we've all seen in the movies at one time or another (or on the incredibly lame Sci-Fi channel). These were supposedly cloned from DNA taken from Roswell (if you haven't heard of the Roswell Incident, you're automatically too young to play this game). They attack mainly by throwing rings of radiation. Another way they take away health is just by getting close to you; they are soaked with radiation which they have a liking to spread around. The good part is they are incredibly weak; a pair shotgun ss will do 'em in. Geasel Intelligence: Average First Appearance: 'Unknown Location' Combat Strength: Strong Weapon of Choice: Their own poisonous spit One of the most health draining enemies in the game, greasel spit at you, infecting you with who-knows-what for about 10 seconds that takes away about 20 health points per second. Don't even bother with Assault Rifles; it'll take a least two full clips and by then you'll be dead. Best tactic: get behind them and swipe with the Dragon's Tooth Sword, as one swipe will kill it instantly. If getting behind it is impossible the next best thing is using your flame-thrower. Once alight, it can't put out the flames and will fall after a short period of running mindlessly from place to place. Karkian Intelligence: Below Average First Appearance: 'Unknown Location' Combat Strength: Average Weapon of Choice: Their own sharp teeth Looking like ridiculously over-sized alligators, Karkian run to you, and, you guessed it, take a big chomp out of you. Though they look intimidating they really aren't all that powerful; I regard greasel higher then these things. They are however equipped with powerful armor that is tough to pierce. Your best bet is to use a GEP rocket, which would spill a karkian's guts all over the floor. SpiderBot Intelligence: Above Average First Appearence: Vandenberg Air Force Base Combat Stregnth: Awesome Weapon of Choice: Electricity And I thought the MiB were a pain in the ass. These are six legged security bots who zap you with electricity when you get near them. They usually pace back and forth in a select area, and are usually found in sewers or high security area's. There ain't no way of destroying them except with explosives or an EMP grenade. The good part is there are only 4 SpiderBots in the entirety of this game, thank merciful ION Storm. Mini SpiderBot Intelligence: Above Average First Appearance: Vandenberg Air Force Base Combat Strength: Awesome Weapon of Choice: Electricity A smaller version of their conterparts, the SpiderBots. Their damage rates aren't quite as high and they aren't as fast (or as intimidating) as the SpiderBot, but they are much more numerous. Destroy them as you would a normal SpiderBot. Security Bot Intelligence: Above Average First Appearance: Liberty Island Combat Strength: Awesome Weapon of choice: Built-in turret These come in two sizes: small, looking like R2-D2, and large, on two legs with a small turret for a head. As with the spider bot the only way to their destruction is through an EMP grenade or explosive GEP or LAM. They scan the area and follow anything suspicious. When they find you count on taking a few to the chest. Try sneaking by using Radar Transparency or using a thermoptic camo. Military Bot intelligence: Above Average First Appearance: Hong-Kong(friendly) Combat Strength: Nearly Invulnerable Weapon of Choice: Built in turret Eessh. This thing is HUGE. It has double the armor of the normal bot, double the accuracy, and double the range. My advice: don't even bother. Run, run RUN away. ______ ________ _____ ______ | | 0000993 /// | | 00004000904 | | 0123000 | | ¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯¯ 5) Survival Guide ______ ________ _____ ______ | | 0000993 /// | | 00004000904 | | 0123000 | | ¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯¯ In this game a good many new skills and a good lot of knowledge is required to successfully beat this RPG/FPS. This section covers it all, spoiler free. Note: I have encased the text at the left margin...but not at the right margin. Well, the able 79 character limit prevents me from doing this. At least the left side looks good though :). _____________________________________________________________________________ /Use your augs \Found in each level is a blue canister called an augmentation. \______________/It contains a skill power up to your body, such as increased /muscle strength, increased endurance, increased lung capacity, increased |jumping, etc. Each aug can be used once to upgrade a skill.

Each skill costs a differing |amount of points, although the higher the skill level the higher to cost, so |use your points in the areas that most cater to your playing style(e.g. if |you like to skeak, you may want to upgrade low tech weapons or multitool \skills instead of heavy weapons ability)/¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ _____________________________________________________________________________ /Dead bodies are your(only) friends \Remember to ALWAYS examine dead bodies \___________________________________/ for ammo, keys, or other items useful to /you.

Only dispose of enemies that are a directly threat; ignore the Joe a |mile away drinking a beer while talking to himself about how his girl left |him. Also, use silent weapons, such as darts or riot prods.

Here I'll be covering each and every level in the game providing tips, hints, and general strategy on where to find and how to complete your primary and secondary objectives. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • 7.1 Liberty Island, UNATCO HQ • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • Initial Primary Goals: -Get inside the Statue -Capture the NSF commander Initial Secondary Goals: -Meet UNATCO informant Harley Filben at the North Docks -Release the captured Gunther Enemies: Security bot NSF Agents For the moment the only thing you should be doing is gathering supplies and ammunition. So, head straight and to the right to find some crates. Pick up the crowbar and use it to break them. Grab what the crates reveal, then turn around and go down the steps, wade into the water. Break the floating crates, then make a dive to the bottom and pick up what the items the crates let sink. Swim back to the pier and walk forward a bit. A briefing will take place with a fellow UNATCO official. Afterwards continue down the pier and another briefing will occur, this time your brother and fellow UNATCO agent, Paul Denton, who will offer you either a sniper rifle, a GEP gun, or crossbow. Take the GEP gun, as it will prove most useful against an upcoming hostile security bot. You will get both the sniper and crossbow from dead guards later on. Back on the mission, proceed down the pier through little...house?...to the island. Advance left in the direction of the HQ. Talk to the commanding officer Kaplan, and after the conversation he'll offer to sell you some hot weaponry or ammo. Buy anything but the 10mm ammo, as its a total rip off. You can get the same amount from dead guards rather then pay him a whopping 200 credits for a pair of clips. You cannot yet enter your HQ yet but you can explore the surrounding premises. Go to the fenced area to the left of the HQ. Lockpick the hatch and climb down the ladder to find an EMP grenade and get some bonus points. Exit the HQ's perimeter. Enter through the loading point and head south east. Continue this direction, breaking crates as you see them for ammo and items, to the islands east pier. Kill the NSF agents on the pier, then go to the end of it to find your informant. Talk to him, and when the option comes promise him the base commander won't be hurt, otherwise he'll refuse your front door nanokey. You really don't need the key; you can hack into a nearby security computer to open it, which you'll need to use anyways. GOAL COMPLETED : Contact 'Harley' Filben found NOTE: Under the water surrounding the dock a Sawed-off Shotgun and some weapon mods can be found. Swim to the bottom to find an underwater hatch. Lockpick it(2 for Untrained) and break the crates to find both. Note also you'll have to go for air several times to survive. Backtrack towards the Statue. On a crate next to the entrances perimeter ir a datacube. Get the info from it, then head to the north east entrance. You want to enter the statue through there. Watch the security bot; you DO NOT want to get its attention, but if you have the GEP gun you may as well destroy it. Either way run like to the entrance, running because a turret is positioned right above it. If you got the key from the informant, just go through the entrance. If not, go to the security terminal left of the doors. Press X to activate it, then use the login you got from the datacube, or if not hack it. In the following menu you can control the decisions of two turrets, the one above you and one inside the statue in the front lobby. Set both turrets to "Attack Enemies" and turn the camera's off, because if they see you an alarm will sound. Still in the security menu unlock and open the door. After you are done, terminate the computer and pick up the flares, smash the crate/take the lockpick it drops, then enter the lobby. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Optional place of entry: You can also penetrate the SOL through a back way(near the bunker at the north end of the island), hopping up metal crates and following the walkways. I wouldn't recommend going this route because it is much more guarded then from the front entrance, believe it or not. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Use the prod on the guard, then go towards the trash-can with the lockpick and LAM near it. Pick both up then deactivate the alarm pad with a pair of multitools. If you have none, don't worry about it. Just a precaution. Approach the lasers and draw the patrolling NSF agent to you. Put him to sleep with your trusty tranq. darts. If you don't have the multitool to deactivate the laser beams, enter the ventilation grate to the right; you'll come to the same place, but if you use the grate and shaft you'll deal with two more enemies which you could have ignored. Any way you chose, go to the room to the left of the laser guarded entrance. Use a multitool on the camera, but if you don't have any just run past it to the terminal. Hack the terminal and deactivate the camera and deactivate the turret, then switch the doors' options to 'Open'. If you don't have the hacking skill, there is an explosive crate just before the laser guarded entrance. Put it in front of the locked door, stand back, then fire a few rounds at it. It will blow open the door. Enter the secret door to find the captured UNATCO official named Gunther Hermann. Talk to him and make him stay were he is; you don't want him to take your pistol and go off on his own. GOAL COMPLETED : Gunther found and released If your not already in the main lobby for the Statue, do so and go up its main steps. From there, go up the stairwells, killing the terrorists as you find them. Keep on ascending until you reach the NSF base commander. In your talk an option will come up: One is to kill him("I'll send you back...In a body bag!") and the other to take him prisoner. If you pick the body bag one he'll take out a shotgun, forcing you to kill him. Either way you'll get goal complete, though if you kill him you'll get a pay deduction from Maderley. GOAL COMPLETED : Base commander interrogated and taken prisoner After your conversation ends UNATCO troopers will come in and secure the rest of the island. Take the augmentation canister where the commander was. The island secure, UNTATCO HQ will be open, so go to it and meet with Paul, enter the unlocked HQ's doors, and go past the desk with the lounging Private in its chair. GOAL ADDED : Meet Manderly on level 2 There are no enemies whatsoever here, unless you decide to rebel and shoot UNATCO troops. Go through the door using the retinal scanner. In the main part of the building, go down the pink steps to the below offices. Enter the one which titles "Joseph Manderley". Talk to the secretary and she'll tell you to go right in. Chat with Manderley for a pair more of Goals. GOAL ADDED : See the medical offices on level 3 GOAL ADDED : Meet with Agent Navarre and Gunther in the break room First see Navarre. She's in the break-room, which is adjacent with the secretaries office. Listen to Gunthers' conspiracy theory (LMAO!) then talk to the smart-ass Navarre. GOAL COMPLETED : Agent Navarre met with Now take the gray steps to the right of Manderley's office down to level three. From there, I think you capable enough to find the medical offices. Talk to the medic on duty then visit the medbot to restore your health. Now time to visit with the quarter master. His office is no harder to locate. He'll give you a stealth pistol and present the option for you to take a multitool or lockpick; your decision here. GOAL COMPLETED : Jaimie met/medical report sent Funny: Before you go back and meet with Manderly enter the womens restroom and talk to te women. Heheh, now you'll get a special message from your briefing with Joseph. After your briefing, exit UNATCO HQ and all the way back to the pier you started the level on. Go up to the speedboat and press X to board it to the next level. • • • • • • • • • • 7.2 Battery Park • • • • • • • • • • Initial Primary Goals: -NONE- Initial Secondary Goals: -Locate the missing barrel of Ambrosia Enemies: NSF Troopers Automated Turret After the brief conversation with Navarre, with all weapons concealed, go to the kid walking back and forth. Talk to him and give him a candy bar...it's not Hershey's but he says it'll do (well, not exactly). He'll give you a code to a secret entrance to the NSF underground tunnels. Enter this code to the left of the soda machine on the security pad. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Optional Place of Entry: You can also enter this secret NSF bunker through the center of Battery Park inside Castle Clinton. Inside Castle Clinton is a shack. Inside is a kid, to his right a locked door. Open it with whatever means necessary and you'll find a locked hatch leading to the bunker. You'll have to mow down a lot of terrorists to get to it though. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Optional Place of Entry: No, you're not seeing double. I've recently discovered yet another way to get inside the bunker. Go to the dock, then jump in the water. Submerge yourself under the wooden structure you'll encounter near the boat. There you will find a grate; use a pair of lock-picks to open it and you'll arrive inside the bunker! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Go through the retracted wall and head down the steps to a square room, watched by a single NSF and a camera. Avoid the camera, kill the NSF, then activate the terminal. Hack it and turn all of the camera's off. Once you exit from the terminal you'll face two more NSF cronies; one is wielding a flame-thrower, so watch out. Descend the steps, cross the walkways to a storage room. To the right is a credit chit and a health crate. Kill the NSF guard and go up the steps. To your left is a locked door, so lockpick it. In their is a safe; blow it open with some rockets or lockpick it open to find an aug. Before leaving, hack the terminal, and as usual turn off the camera's. Now go back all the way to the storage room. Form their backtrack some more to a walkway overlooking a canal. Jump into the canal and to the other side. From here you can find the missing Ambrosia. GOAL COMPLETED : Ambrosia found GOAL ADDED : Report to agent Navarre for a briefing on your next mission Now head back to the surface and meet up with Navarre. In your talk, be humble and say "I'm learning as I go" and she'll give you a pair of EMP grenades instead of nothing, which is exactly what she gave me when I acted all cocky. GOAL COMPLETED : Agent Navarre reported to GOAL ADDED : The NSF are holding hostages in the subway station and are threatening to blow up the platform. Free them. Proceed back to the dock. From there, turn right and find some handball courts (???). Pass them and turn right to find the entrance to the Metro Station. Across the loading point you'll find some NSF in a homeless shelter area. Kill them then enter the metro station. Proceed to some blue trip wires. Do not cross them, as if you do the platform will blow up, but jsut stand there and snipe off all the remaining NSF forces. GOAL COMPLETED : Hostages freed GOAL ADDED : Report to Paul in Hell's Kitchen Look straight down in front of the tripwires and throw an EMP grenade. It will deactivate the trip-wires for a time, so take advantage. Search the terrorists bodies then enter the subway train, and your off to see the wizard...that wonderful wizard Paul...oh, because because because because because of the wonderful things he does! Err...okay, just get on the subway, will you!? • • • • • • • • • • • 7.3 Hell's Kitchen • • • • • • • • • • • Initial Primary Goals: -Meet with Paul Initial Secondary Goals: -NONE- Enemies: NSF Terrorists Automated Turret Talk to the bums and the hooker if you want, then go up the steps and meet with Paul. If you didn't save the hostages you'll get straight-faced welcome. If you did, you'll get another straight faced welcome. Such emotions out of these two Dentons! GOAL COMPLETED : Paul met with GOAL ADDED : Destroy the hidden NSF generator GOAL ADDED : Talk to the locals at the Free Clinic GOAL ADDED : Investigate hostage situation at the 'Ton Hotel. Exit the subway station and turn 180 degrees. You'll see a back ally; enter it and find the bum being cornered by two NSF agents. Kill them both and you'll get a password from the bum. On a side note, try and shoot baskets with the ball lying around. I sure couldn't. Now I can't shoot virtually, AND I can't shoot in reality! Exit the alley and head to the steps that have the sign above them saying "Free Clinic." Pass the loading point, and then holster all revealed weapons. In the reception area find a bum who's sitting on a black couch. Talk to him to complete the goal. If you need health, you can BUY health packs from the doctor or PAY to use his medbots. WTF, I though this was called a "free clinic?" !!! GOAL COMPLETED : Info received from locals at clinic Exit the clinic and talk to the pair of UNATCO guys across the street. Take the gas grenades from them, the proceed along to a place called "Underworld Tavern." Kinky name, but nothing dirty inside, much to my dismay. Enter it, pass the loading point. Ignore the bartender and go to the far left side of the tavern. DO NOT talk to the "Used Car Salesman?" unless you intend to kill him. Talk to the girl wearing the tank-top. She'll tell you something like "Johnny is mad..." and give you a goal. GOAL ADDED : A man named "Johnny" took a girl out behind the tavern. Investigate the situation. Exit the tavern from the green "Exit" sign to the back alley. Turn right to find a shady character cornering a girl. Listen to the talk to find he's a pimp and she's the, well, "work force." Kill the pimp then put away your gun and talk to the girl. GOAL COMPLETED : 'Johnny' situation investigated Go back into the tavern and talk to the tank-top girl. She'll give you a password to use in the next level. Exit again to the alley and climb the fire escape to an apartment building window. Enter it to find its your brother Paul's apartment. Get info from the datacube on the table then use it on the security pad behind the painting to reveal a secret room with an aug/supplies. Enter the hall. Note that this place has NSF taking hostages, so using a shotgun is not the best of choices. Take out your pistol and kill the two hostage takers, then talk to the freed male to get a password. Proceed to the lobby and drop the last NSF guard, this one holding up the receptionist. GOAL COMPLETED : The Ton's hostage's have been freed from captivity Leave the 'Ton to the outside street. Kill the NSF agents and go to the steps straight ahead of you; town those steps is where the Smugglers hideout is located. If you got the password, "Bloodshot," he'll let you in when you speak to him over the intercom. Take the lift down, then proceed to the some blue trip-wires; if you don't mind losing some health, run through the trip- wires. If you don't have the health to spare, you can deactivate the trip- wires using an EMP grenade or by using some multitools on the terminal in the guardhouse, left of the tripwires. Either way you choose, find Smuggler a little ways past, a-pacing back and forth. Talk to him: he'll give you a goal and nano-key, and make you some offers. GOAL ADDED : Find and free Smugglers friend, Ford Schick Don't buy anything from the smuggler; he's a RIP-OFF. Instead, head up the stairs and go to the painting; break it with your knife to reveal a Thermoptic Camo. After you grab it, exit smugglers hideout. Okay; Smuggler said that his friend is located in an underground sewer system. Well, there are two ways to get to this sewer system that I have just recently found. With your nano-key in hand, you can either head to the alleyway where you found the hooker (Sandra Renton) and find the grate there, open it up, and climb down the ladder, [OR] you can get to the same place via grate, near the entrance to the subway station. I'd recommend you take the way in the alley; through the other entrance near the subway station, you'll have to deal with a lot of trip-wires and gun turrets. Climb down the ladder and Alex will give you a call, saying that this place isn't on the map. As you penetrate deeper into the sewer system, you'll find mysterious men in uniforms, which the game titles "MJ12 Troopers." You'll learn more about the MJ12 later on in this game, so for now just kill off the locals, and then enter the door in the center of the room. Oh, and try not to fall into the water, as it's pretty toxic. Inside the room you'll find an MJ12 and some crates. Kill the MJ12, open the crates for a lock-pick and health kit. Remove yourself from that room, then look to the right hand side; you'll find a door. Head on through, go down the halls and corridors until you reach a locked door. If you don't have/don't want to waste multitools on the security pad, you can find the correct combination back near where you started, through the door on the other side of the room. You'll have to get through trip-wires and by a pair of turrets, but eventually you'll find the code in a datacube, on top of a platform with a dead bum. Use an EMP grenade to deactivate the trip-wire that's guarding the ladder. Once you've got the code, use it to get through the locked door. Inside you'll find a lab network. Kill the guards, enter the office room with the beds. Hack the computer and read the revealing emails; remember them come later parts of the game, and you'll laugh at the irony. You can find Ford Schick through an anteroom to the left of this room. But before you talk to hi, make sure ALL the guards here are dead, and make sure you pay a visit to the armory to the left of the stairs. Tell Schick to run. Follow and open the doors for him, which he apparently cannot do (o_0). Keep following Schick until he tells you he can make the rest of the way on his own. After he says this, talk to him a few times and he'll reveal some disturbing plot-twists. GOAL COMPLETED : Ford Schick has been freed from captivity Now it's time to get back on our main objectives. Go to the Osgood&Sons warehouse entrance, located out the front doors of the 'Ton and down the street. Go through the doors, kill the guard, then go through the locked door. If you don't have any lockpicks then you'll have to knock it down. Either way enter it, follow the tripwire guarded hallways(use an EMP or deactivate them using multitools) to an elevator. Take it up to the roof. If you don't want to lockpick the next door then use the ladder to the right of the elevator and roof hop to a fire escape. From there, jump to the next buildings roof. Kill the local NSF then run across the board and break into the building through the window. Exit the building through the next window, though before you do you may want to get the LAW downstairs. On the fire escape climb down and kill the NSF agent. Enter through the door and through the not-workng elevator shaft. Enter it and climb down using the ladder then hop into the elevator through the opened vent. From there run down the corridor. Find the warehouse district. NSF patrol the area around it, so dispose of them all before entering. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Optional Place of Entry : Another way into the warehouse is through a sewer system. Take the back alley to the left of the warehouse. Get passed the trip wires and turrets then climb over the power generator using metal crates to find a grate and datacube. Open the grate to reveal the sewer system which can be used to get into the warehouse. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Optional Place of Entry : Another way into the warehouse, which is a way to avoid the attack dogs and all the NSF in the perimeter, is through a grate. This grate is straight ahead of where you exit from the previous building. Enter the gated fence and you'll spot the grate, locked. Yet another way to get into the warehouse is through a back door. This is up the ramp by the gate. The door is locked; you can blast it open or lock-pick it open. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ In the warehouse, kill all NSF forces then head upstairs to lvl 2. Go to a computer room and hack the terminal. Shut off the cooling systems, then watch the NSF generator overheat and blow up, at about 5 frames per second :| GOAL COMPLETED : NSF generator destroyed Now head on up to the roof, but don't forget to blow open the safe to get the Speed Enhancement/Run Silent aug.

Find Manderley's office; you'll have to wait, for another someone is in meeting with him, this the director of FEMA Walter Simons. Listen to the conversation involving your brother, who Simons wants released from the coalition. Afterwards when the door opens talk to Maderley. GOAL COMPELTED : Manderley met for debriefing GOAL ADDED : Meet Sam Carter and stock up on weaponry Go meet the weapons master Sam Carter to complete the secondary goal. If you wanna be a little mischievous, go overhear the interrogation taking place on level 4 with a captured NSF troop and Simons. You'll be reprimanded from Simons' Bodyguards but who cares: some valuable information can be learned. Afterward go back up to the helipad to go back to Battery park. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • 7.5 Battery Park, Mole People, NYC Tunnels • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • Initial Primary Goals: -Locate the airfield where the NSF moved the stolen ambrosia Initial Secondary Goals: -NONE- Enemies: NSF trooper Talk around with the bums. One of them will tell you he has a code to a secret entrance to the mole peoples hideout. However, he will only give it too you if you have proof of alliance with the mole people. This proof is a password, 'underworld', you received at Hell's Kitchen from the girl at the Underworld Tavern after saving her friend from the pimp. This is a multitool saver. Head into the subway to the phone booth with no phone, but a security pad in its place. Enter the code on the pad and it will retract into the ground, or use a tool if ya don't got the code. Pass the loading point to a condemned and closed off subway station, home of...the Mole People, a bunch of self exiled junkies, smugglers and bums. Hold your child's hand tightly in this place. Note the brutish looking black guy holding an assault rifle to the right, but don't talk to him yet; simply remember his location. Head all the way left to a sign on the wall. It's a cigarette add saying their brand is the "Only brand recommended by the surgeon general himself!" Doesn't that say something about the corruption and decay of JC's world? Head up the steps and find a guard; he'll tell you this is "Rooks" territory. Kill him and take his nano key, killing the other guard if he heard. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Useful information: The crates stacked on the left of the metal-detector entrance conceal a ventilation duct. Follow it and you will arrive in a small room containing key information that will help you a bit later. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Use the nano-key on the locked metal detector, then blow open the locked door in the ticket office and get some important info from the datacube in there. Passing the office with the datacube turn left at the intersection. It will be a loading point. Turn left at the next intersection and climb the steps. Find the Rooks' leader, El Rey, surrounded by a bunch of white girls talking all ghetto-like. A painfully pathetic sound, really. Anywho, talk to El Rey and he will attempt sell you some LAMs. He'll also give you your secondary goal, to kill the dealer down on the lower levels. You know, the brutish guy I told you to note. GOAL ADDED : Kill the dealer on the lower levels After you kill him go back to El Rey. He'll give you a free LAM. Nifty. GOAL COMPLETED : Dealer killed Now go down the steps and turn left, NOT back into the loading point but past it to a tunnel entitled "Wall Street". You'll find another subway station with a wrecked subway car. Enter the car and find Charlie. Talk to him to receive another goal. He'll tell you to become the Mole Peoples repair d00d. GOAL ADDED : Fix the mole people's plumbing problem Head all the way back to the point where you killed the drug dealer. Get on the tracks and proceed to the north end. Enter the utility room and blow away the boards with a LAM. Avoid the steam, turn the two valves and go back and talk to Charlie. [Credit: Alv on the GameFAQs Deus Ex PS2 board for this information] GOAL COMPLETED : Mole people's plumbing problems fixed In talking to Charlie he will tell you the code for the women's bathroom, if you didn't already get it from a datacube. Make sure no one's looking, then penetrate the restroom. You have now completed the goal of who-knows-how-many curious 3rd graders! Ha-ha! Okay, enough with the dry humor. Enter the code under the sink, and viola! a secret passage will open up. Enter through it past a loading point to a ladder. Climb down to find another set of train tracks. Proceed to the north end of them, killing NSF along the way, to a wooden shack near a cave-in. Turn right onto the platform to another shack. In the shack are two cardboard boxes. Destroy or move them to reveal a brick that's sticking out of the wall, near floor level. Press the brick to reveal the location of the NSF commander. He'll surrender right away. After your talk grab the nano-key and supplies on the desk then get back on the tracks. Go to the southern end to another cave in. Jump up the cleft, kill the local NSF, and go through the men's bathroom to the left. LOL, that rhymed. Maybe I should become a poet!

There are two ways to get around the barrier; one is through steam, guaranteed to lose health, the other is through tripwires. You should go through the tripwires since you can deactivate them with an EMP grenade or just destroy the turrets they activate. Either passage will do. After you pass the barrier go to the hall with a gas grenade placed as a proximity mine. Just run past it and it will do you no harm. Find the pacing NSF agent and kill him, and remember to take his nano-key. Ignore the door to the right; it contains nothing but radiation and leads to the same place the nano-key takes you. Through the locked door you'll find some tripwires. You can jump across to the bridge, but in doing so turret activate. Instead enter the vent at left. Drop into through water, swim into the pipe, and wade to its end to a sewer. Climb up onto the platform and pass the rats to the ladder. Climb it and exit the sewer system. Proceed on to some double doors. Enter them and you'll find the two barrels of Ambrosia. GOAL ADDED : Locate the other two barrels of Ambrosia Climb up the steps to the left of the Ambrosia to the second floor. Kill the guard and enter the locked supply room. Dispatch the NSF then take all the table has to offer. Move the flower pot on the table to find a switch. Press it and the bookcase will retract; inside an aug awaits. Head back down to the double doors to the right of the Ambrosia. Go through them to find a helipad. Watch for the local NSF while you make your way to a lone doorway with guards on both sides. Kill them and enter the hall watched by a turret and camera (ya can't have one without the...oooother!). Destroy the camera to render the turret useless and get on the lift. Take it up and go through the door to reach another airfield. Run past the bots and hangar to a secured fence. You don't have much time before the bots notice you, so quickly lockpick the box and press the button inside of it. This will open a fence. Press it, enter the area the fence blocked. Go through the loading point. You'll arrive at a private airfield, littered with security bots. I really hope you have packed a few extra LAMs and GEPs for this little excursion. Run to the far right of the field, dodging or destroying security bots along the way. You'll find a door leading to a dock. Go through it to find the second barrel of Ambrosia. Take the health before leaving, and make sure to take the nano-key on the metal crate. GOAL ADDED : Find the final barrel of Ambrosia. This one is on Lebedev's 747 Exit the dock and head straight to another security box and another locked gate. Your nano-key will unlock it, so press the button and run past the storage bins to be safe of the omnipresent bots. This is the barracks area. Kill the guard SILENTLY then enter the barracks. As usual, clean it out and make sure no one sets off the alarm. On the bottom floor there is a brick near the staircase; press it to reveal yet another secret area with an aug in it. After gathering up the supplies head to the second floor of the barracks. Enter the sleeping quarters with the four bunk beds and find the only unlocked supply bin. Open it to find a health kit and a datacube with the passcode to the 747 docking tunnel. Enter it and pass the loading point to the hangar. You'll get quite the shock at this point: Paul will radio you in and tell you he's working for the NSF! Yep, that's right. Go talk to him near the 747 for more, then enter the 747 itself. Head into the cockpit to find a nano-key for Lebedev's private quarters, which are located in the back of the plane. Lebedev will be there, next to his bed, so talk to him. A little ways into your chat agent Navarre will arrive and you'll be presented with an option: to kill Lebedev or kill Navarre, who will kill Lebedev herself if you don't. Make your choice; decide which side convinces you most. If you end up wanting to kill Navarre, snipe her from a distance because she'll explode on death. GOAL ADDED : Meet with Jock's chopper and return to base Now on to finding that last barrel of Ambrosia. Its in the cargo hold. Also in the cargo hold is a suspension vault with an aug in it. The code is in a datacube under the bed next to Lebedev. GOAL COMPLETED : All Ambrosia containers located Head back through three able loading points to the helipad.

He'll be in the break room where you first found Navarre. GOAL COMPLETED : Jaimie told GOAL ADDED : Meet with Paul in the apartment Back in Hell's Kitchen, go to the 'Ton. Once in the 'Ton kill a character named JoJo on the upper floor, otherwise he will kill the hooker you rescued from the alleyway. No big deal, just adds more depth to the game. Now go meet Paul in the usual spot. Also, in his apartment make sure to get the aug upgrade in his secret room. GOAL COMPLETED : Paul met with GOAL ADDED : Send warning communication to terrorist group Silhouette Proceed to the front entrance to the Underworld Tavern. The roadblock ahead of it has been removed, so go through there and past a loading point. Talk to the UNATCO rep then kill him, because later you'll need to make an escape with all UNATCO's little ants scurrying around trying to kill you. Enter the warehouse, and note it looks nearly identical to the warehouse in which you disabled the NSF generator. Go to the Medbot in one of the upstairs rooms then go to the roof. Enter the communications relay center and hack the first terminal. You ed well better have at least Trained hacking skill for this part, otherwise you'll have to go searching for a datacube which is in the note below. Hack the first terminal and activate the satellite coordinates. Then enter the next room and send the relay. NOTE : If you have less than trained hacking skill you're going to have to find a datacube. Head into the room with the toxic fumes and computer mainframes. Put on a hazmat suite then get to the terminal inside. Shut off the toxic crap then open the hatch in the floor on the bottom level, using the same terminal. Exit the room and go to the bottom floor to the hatch. In there is a locked door containing the datacube you can use on the computers on the roof. GOAL COMPLETED : Communiqué sent GOAL ADDED : Report to Paul and help him escape Walter Simons will send you a transmission, informing you of his new orders for the troops: kill Denton! So, everybody in the building will get a-gunning for you, as I warned you earlier about. Kill all your enemies then exit the facility. Get back to Paul's apartment and he'll tell you he's injured and cannot climb. You'll soon hear a set MiB's at the door demanding your surrender. After your talk go and kill all the MiB's and UNATCO officials you can. But in the end, DIE. I'm serious. You won't actually be killed and start at your last loading/save point; you'll be taken to a secret detention facility. If you do not die in the 'Ton, or if you jump out the window, you're brother will be killed, which will affect the objectives of the next level. If you don't care about Paul, go to the subway station and you'll be killed (but not really killed) by Gunther and his mechanical army. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • 7.8 Unknown Location, UNATCO HQ • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • Initial Primary Goals: -NONE- Initial Secondary Goals: -NONE- Enemies: Unatco Agents Security Bot Military Bot Men in Black Karkian Greasel Secretary Yes, that's right, this level is called 'Unknown Location.' Well, you're location should be pretty clear to you at least: a prison cell with no way out. Walk around a bit, and someone or someTHING will send you a transmission. He's (assuming its a he) 'Daedalus' and he'll open the cell doors for a limited time. Actually, the doors will stay open for as long as it takes you to figure out what to do. (...) Crouch under the half-open door and look for the baton on a crate. All that weapon gathering and all you got left now is a baton. Well, smash the crate to upgrade to receive...a knife! Woo-hoo! Watch out UNATCO, no, scratch that, watch out PLANET EARTH with that advanced technical weaponry o_o GOAL ADDED : Find your brother(body) and help him escape GOAL ADDED : Get back your taken weapons from the armory GOAL ADDED : Escape captivity The Paul goal is iffy...if you were knocked unconscious at the 'Ton he'll be alive, but if you were knocked unconscious at Battery Park he won't, in which case you'll only be ordered to view his body, and as to why I coudn't tell you. Use the knife on the UNATCO official then get a code from the datacube. Use it on the cell with the medbot and dead NSF agent, and get the sweet health pack for your troubles. Open the cell next to it to find an NSF agent who'll help you and give you a medkit. Basically he'll play the frontline, and he'll be killed pretty fast, but not before he does some damage. So, sneak out of the detention block to a loading point. Turn right to a bot maintenance center, but don't let the name scare you, because there are no bots active. Yet. Anyway kill the local UNATCO agents and head upstairs. Meet with a mechanic and he'll give you a code to the armory and offer you some stuff to buy. Press the switch near the window and go back down the stairs to a newly opened way entitled 'Armory'. You'll find a pair of... *dramatic pause* military bots. Run past them and enter the code on the armory to find a sh!t load of weapons and multitools. Take it all then head upstairs and hack the terminal to turn off the military bots. While you're up there you may want to consider obtaining the plasma rifle. GOAL COMPLETED : Stolen weaponry/items retaken Exit the bot maintenance facility through the loading point to a circular chamber with a locked door, the door being an exit. Daedulus won't let you through yet. Go on the platforms, kill the security forces and their K-9's and enter through the passage adjacent to the one you entered here with. A scientist will come running and will talk to you/give you a passcode. Pass the laboratories to another lab with the medical chamber connected to it. Use the code from the scientist to open the door. Talk to Paul, or depending on what you did last level look at his body, and use the medbot and exit. GOAL COMPLETED : Paul contacted - (or) Pauls body viewed Proceed to the levels exit, the one Daedalus wouldn't let you out of. He'll give you the code once your there. Once you pass it you'll discover you've been in the restricted part of UNATCO HQ, Level 4. Proceed to the medical facility and talk to Jaimie. Take the upgrade on the table next to him, then open the maintenance room in here to reveal another aug, this one a regenerator/ballistic protection. Pick regeneration...its a lifesaver. Now go up to Level 2 and find Manderley talking to the hologram of Walter Simons. After your chat(notice I don't say 'friendly chat'), go outside UNATCO's facility to find ever-faithful Jock awaiting.

Now go to the other loading bay and find a set of stairs. Clear out barracks if it pleases you then enter the control towers/command center. To the right is an infinitely locked door, but it will open because of your nano-key. Press both buttons in there to complete the goal. GOAL COMPLETED : Weapons lock deactivated Back at Jock's 'copter watch him blow open the bay door across from you to escape. Run to it, avoiding turrets and bots.

It's also one of the longest and most complicated in the game. For now go to the other end of the market to a hall with several entrances. Enter the entrance to the right, the only unnamed entrance, to the Wan Chai market. Go to the large complex in the center of the market, and talk to the doorman who's named 'Gordon Quick'(pretty strange name for a Chinese man, eh?) to receive a goal. GOAL COMPLETED : Clues found GOAL ADDED : Find and examine the Dragon Tooth Sword as proof is telling lies Retrace your steps back into the hall. This time enter the way marked 'Tunnochi Road.' Cross the bridge and head into the tunnel entitled Tonnochi Road. Proceed to the small road's hotel through some automatic glass sliding doors. Pass the doorman and take the penthouse elevator(the elevator on the left) up and you'll conveniently arrive at Maggie Chow's apartment. Talk to her to receive a code then go to the grand piano and turn left. You'll find a 'pepper sprayer' hanging from the ceiling. Press the X button on it to reveal a secret area. At this point turn around and kill Maggie and her maid, because they will be of no use anymore. Enter the secret area, go past the tripwires to a painting. Use multitools on it to open it and a direct entracne to the swords' keep will be opened. If you haven't the tools, then just pass through the tripwires and mow down the guards and make your way to the same point. Hack the computer, or if you have insufficient hacking skill use 3 tools on the security pad to release the Dragon Tooth Sword. Go pick it up. NOTE : The code Maggie gave you leads to an armory below a police station. This is located in the market you started the level in, to the right in a building with a sign saying "No Unauthorized Personnel." Multitools open the first door then use the code on the hole to the left. Go down the ladder to find the armory. GOAL COMPLETED : DT Sword retrieved GOAL ADDED : Demonstrate Chow's guilt to the Red Arrow leader Max Chen Now backtrack to the hall where the entrance to Tonnochi road is. This time enter the tunnel entitled 'Lucky Money'. Pass the mini-mall and you'll find the doorwomen. You'll have to pay to get your way into the club. Inside talk to the dancing people, listen to the two gay chicks, and head upstairs. Go behind the bar and go through the strange looking door made out of...bamboo? From there enter the door at the head of the long table to find Max Chen. Talk to him. GOAL COMPLETED : Maggie Chows guilt shown to Red Arrow leader GOAL ADDED : Tell Gordon Quick the reaction of Red Arrow leader Some MJ12 commandos are now invading; consequently the framerate stutters BIG TIME so just let your allies do the work, but you will get a 150 skill point bonus for 'Character Interaction' if you fight alongside Max's people. Exit the club and mall and go tell Gordon the news. GOAL COMPLETED : Gordon informed Gordon will give you a code to the compound he guards. Use it then climb the steps to the right of the dog and proceed to some barracks with a kitchen on the right. Move towards the paintings and notice a keypad. Use your code on it and the painting will withdraw. Pass the loading point to the anteroom to Tracer's lab. Search the walls for a button and press it. Talk to Tracer then gather up the mass amounts of supplies in his lab. GOAL COMPLETED : Tracer Tong found GOAL ADDED : Step into the center of the operating theater so Tracer can deactivate the killswitch Step inside the chamber and stay in the center on the red part of the floor. JC will make noises like he's being hurt, but no health will be subtracted. Simply stand there until the red lights fade. GOAL COMPLETED : Kill switch deactivated Now go meet Tracer in the control center. He'll send you out on an errand. GOAL ADDED : Get the ROM encoding for the Dragons Tooth Sword at the VersaLife building VersaLife is located in the hall previous to the Wan Chai market. It has a big sign saying 'VersaLife'. Enter its doors using the code Tong gave you. Inside, go up the walkways to the top floor, ignoring the man in black but continuing to some cubicles. Go to any one computer and hack it to get a visitors day pass. The man in black could also do this, but that would cost you a mighty pretty penny. Go up using the elevator and meet with the supervisor. He'll tell you if you do anything out of the ordinary his guards won't hesitate to shoot. Hmph. I guess he didn't get hugged enough as a kid. Take his threat with a grain of salt and go up the stairs to the right of the statue. Enter the armory and hack the terminal to open a secret passage at the foot of the VersaLife statue below. If you haven't the hacking skill you're going to have to blow at least 2 multitools on the pad on the statue. Go down the ramp, enter the passage and turn right, passing a loading point. You'll be told then by Tong that the area you're in is where his ROM encoding is located. That means the square thingy in the middle of the room. Take the lift on it up to a personal computer. Hack it and download the encoding. Once you step off the platform an alarm will sound, so all the guards are now enemies. NOTE: Three augs are located in the adjoining corridor. Go down to the labs and hack the terminal to open aug containment pods. GOAL COMPLETED : ROM encoding retrieved GOAL ADDED : Go to the temple in the Wan Chai market to cement the deal between triads Now all you have to do is get out of VersaLife. You're going to have to use heavy firepower, so be warned. This temple you're supposed to get to is next to Tong's compound. Go there and talk to the Dragon Head's and a peace will be initiated. GOAL COMPLETED : Deal cemented between triads GOAL ADDED : Report to Tracer Tong GOAL ADDED : Meet the triad leaders at the Lucky Money for a drink For your secondary goal go see the triad members at the Lucky Money. Other then some skill points and a crap load of wine nothing will be achieved. GOAL COMPLETED : Triad members seen Now go and see Mr. Tong once again. He'll say you'll have to go back into the VersaLife building, but this time through a back entrance. GOAL COMPLETED : Tong reported too GOAL ADDED : Steal the virus schematic from the level 2 of the VersaLife building Exit Tong's compound to Canal Road, to the east of the temple where you met with the Dragon Heads. You'll find a large subway tunnel. Turn right and go over the road block to find an aug upgrade and some skill points, then afterwards go back over the roadblock and proceed down the subway towards your goals. Enter the door using the code Tong was nice enough to give you to a maintenance room. Lockpick the hatch or blow it open with a LAM. Fall down the tube into the water. Surface onto the pipes then enter the only open pipe. At its end and to the right of the pipe is a datacube, so get a code from it. Walk down the corridor and your good anonymous friend Daedalus will contact you. GOAL ADDED : Destroy the Universal Constructor Use the code on the door to your right. Go up the walkway to the first landing. Look down and you'll see a small grate. Enter that to a ventilation shaft. Proceed to a camera; deactivate it with tools then drop out of the shaft. Ignore the bots to your left; they are inactive unless you're dumb enough to set off an alarm or go through the tripwires. To the room at right is a terminal. Hack it to open some aug containment's pods, then go to the previous room with a scientist standing in front of a computer. Kill her then hack open the doors using her computer and download the virus schematics. GOAL COMPLETED : Virus shematics sent to Tong Now all the barriers to the UC are dissolved, so get to it! In the corridor to the left, find a ladder leading down. Take it down to a catwalk above the universal constructor. Grab all the augs you can carry then proceed down another ladder to the floor. If you killed Ms. Chow in her apartment nothing will happen, but if not you'll face her wielding a dragons tooth sword. Kill her if she appears, then go to the terminal at the base of the UC, and enter the code Daedalus gave you to destroy it. GOAL COMPLETED : UC destroyed OBEJCTVIE ADDED : Meet Tracer Tong You're going to have to exit VersaLife from the pipes under the UC, as all other exits are blocked off. Go through the sewers to a small dock with a ship in the water. Swim onto the ship and buy some weapon mods from the girl. Press the pepper sprayer to reveal another secret area. Afterwards leave the boat and find the bridge near the entrance to Tonnochi road. Pass the loading points and go back and meet Tong. GOAL COMPLETED : Tong met with, again GOAL ADDED : Go meet Jock/take his chopper to the PCS Wall Cloud Jock has landed in the complex's courtyard. Go meet him. • • • • • • • • • • • 7.11 PCS Wall Cloud • • • • • • • • • • • Initial Primary Goals: -Enter the main building -Scuttle the PCS Wall Cloud by blowing its 4 welding points Initial Secondary Goals: -Bring Stanton Dowd some ambrosia -Loot the storage area for needed explosives Enemies: MJ12 troopers Sailors Military bot Security Bot Talk to the pacing soldier to receive a key to the gate. Then go to the left near a barrel and box. Push them aside to find a grate; open it using lockpicks and inside you'll find a nano-key. Move out and head towards the warehouse ahead of you, for that will be our secondary goal. Raid it and take its supplies to complete the goal. Don't worry about the bots, even if an alarm goes off they'll just sit there, probably having some lewd dream about hooking up with a personal computer. Hahah, I'm here all week folks. GOAL COMPLETED : Storage area raided Exit the warehouse and move towards the office building marked 'Commander'. Blow its door open, and inside blow the safes door open to reveal an aug. DO NOT PRESS THE SECURITY PAD. If you do an alarm will sound and the two military bots will wake up from stand-by. Go outside the office to a gate. You're going to have to blow it open if you don't hold the key. Pass the military bots and find a crane. Take the lift up to its top and press the button on its side. This will make the maintenance lift retract towards you. Get on it and use it to get to the roof. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Optional place of entry: You can also enter the main building via its front door. The first MJ12 guy will let you by and you'll come to a dock. Its guarded by some MJ12 and a security bot, and you'll have to jump into the water and find the ladder to the ship to get on it. I don't recommend this route. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Optional Place of Entry: On the left side of this building there is a grate below a valve, if you raise the grate you can then use a nearby manhole to access tunnels under the building, which come out under the jetty next to the ship. In fact this tunnel network goes back as well almost to the Main Gate, be careful though there is a couple of LAMs down there - but you do get experience points for going back. Access to the ship is then by swimming round and then up the ladder. On exit you can just jump into the water over the west side of the ship and you are very close to the opening of the tunnel. The one disadvantage to this is that it does not fulfill your primary mission of gaining access to the main building, so once I was on the roof about to leave with Jock, I opened the grate and crawled in far enough to fulfill this mission. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ GOAL COMPLETED : Main building entered GOAL ADDED : Board the ship Go into the vent system and pass a loading point. To the left crouch under to another shaft and you'll find another crane's control systems. Press its button to make a hanging truss position itself in an angle where it will act as a bridge to the ship. Use it. GOAL COMPLETED : Ship boarded GOAL ADDED : Get to lower levels Upon boarding the ship, clear out its deck then penetrate the lower levels through the doors. GOAL COMPLETED : Lower level penetrated Search out the rooms you'll find here. On the upper floor you'll find an ambrosia vial in a room without a door to give to Dowd. The armory is accessible only though its main pad, but the electronics room can be entered via the vent shaft leading into it. Make sure you visit the sick bay for a medbot check up, and while you're there grab the nano-key on the table. Oh yes and make sure you get two codes from the datacubes located on the tables of the various rooms. Now find an impenetrable door. Use your teeny tiny nano-key on the massive thing and it will unlock. Pass the loading point to reach the ships hull. There are two welding points in here; one is to the far right on the other side of the incinerator, and the other is behind the incinerator. Blow the first one. To access the one behind the incinerator you're going to have to use some pipework. Use your code, you should have got, on the out-of-place keypad under the bridge. It will lower the bridge. Get on it to a small room with a bed. Go to its window. Outside of it is a pipe. Break the glass and jump onto the pipe, then follow it to view the welding point. Use a LAM or GEP on it. Now enter the next loading point, guarded by a pair of Chinese thugs, and follow the corridor to the right. You'll come to a funny looking machine called the bilge(oh the irony! If you don't get it look up synonyms for 'bilge') pumps; Tong will tell you to reverse their actions. Do so by hacking the computer. Afterwards go the welding point located in here and blow it. 3 down, 1 to go! Go up the stairs in the room with the bilge pumps. Find an electrician who complains of some wiring problems. GOAL ADDED : Fix the technicians wiring problems Do you feel it seems kinda pointless, you tying to fix something on a ed ship, a ship you're supposed to (and will) sink? Well, that's because it IS pointless, but if you do it you'll get some valuable skill points. So go down the hall to a room with electric arcs splashing everywhere. A mini spider bot inhabits this room, so watch out. Near the spider bot is an electric panel. Bypass it using some multitools then go into the grate to the left of it. In here you'll have no trouble finding and bypassing the next two panels, though watch the tripwire; another mini spider bot will emerge if you pass through. After all three are bypassed your goal will be completed. GOAL ADDED : Technicians problems solved Alright, now go back to the bilge pumps and backtrack from there to the loading point, but not through it. Instead go down the corridor you haven't yet explored. Drop the MJ12 then enter a room with a round electric generator. Pass it, then go through the long adjoining anteroom to a supply bay with several inactive turrets. Its sparsely guarded; go to the other end to find the final welding point. Blow it. GOAL COMPLETED : All welding points blown The ship will sink shortly, though of course not while Your Grace is on it. Get off the ship back to the docks then find an entrance entitled "Crane Control". You'll soon find the vent you entered the building with, so head back to the roof to find the waiting Jock. • • • • • • • • • 7.12 Graveyard • • • • • • • • • Initail Primary Goals: -Meet Stanton Dowd in his families' mausoleum Initial Secondary Goals: -Bring Stanton Down some Ambrosia Enemies: MJ12 Troopers Gatekeeper Go up to the gate and press the button. A gatekeeper will come out and open the gate for you. Go to the mausoleum(a few of the open graves contain bio cells or ammo, FYI) to find Dowd. If you got the Ambrosia from the previous level, you'll complete your secondary goal. GOAL COMPLETED : Stanton Down Met GOAL COMPLETED : Dowd given Ambrosia GOAL ADDED : Destroy the EMP field keeping Jock from landing Remember the gatekeeper? Well he's a spy. Go to the gate house and kill him, killing newly arrived MJ12 along the way, then find the painting in the gatekeepers quarters. Move it aside to find a security keypad. Use a 'tool on it to reveal the location of the EMP field generator. Drop a LAM in front of it then move away. Or a GEP/LAW will also do it in. GOAL COMPLETED : EMP field destoyed GOAL ADDED : Meet up with Jock Now go back into the cemetery and meet with Jock. • • • • • • • • • • • • 7.13 Paris, Catacombs • • • • • • • • • • • • Initial Primary Goals: -Make contanct with the Illuminati in Paris -Make contact with the Silhouette in the catacombs -Find the former Illuminati leader Morgan Everette Initial Secondary Goals: -NONE- Enemies: MJ12 Commando MJ12 Troopers Security Bot Greasel MiB You're on a roof of an abandoned apartment building. Go to the small shack to the left and blow its door down. In there activate the lift, take it down. If you haven't the explosives or lockpicks you're going to have to drop, level by level, from the shaft to the right of the lift's shaft. At bottom go up the steps, pass the cats, and find a homeless(err, not quite I guess) lady. GOAL ADDED : Kill the 4 greasel inhabiting the sewers then report back to the frightened woman Go back to the lift and send it up, but don't be on it when it ascends. You'll find a ladder going down under the lift's landing point. Use it to reach another ventilation shaft. Exit the shaft from any of the vents to a room with a LOT of radiation, 100 REMs as Tong says, whatever the that means. I hope you have a hazmat suite/environmental protection/regeneration aug, cuz you gonna lose a lot of health in there. Pass the radioactive room to a repair bot. A transmission will come up from a thing named 'Icarus' and tell you it has 'full access to your systems'. Well...are you freaked out? Well, maybe I'm just a wimp, but it scared the hell outta me first time I heard that. Speaking of which, first it was Daedalus and now Icarus...you know, the greek myth story of Daedalus and Icarus. You don't KNOW? o_O Take the bio energy the repair bot gives then head up the ladder to a sewer system. As the homeless lady told you, 4 greasels inhabit the area. Take out a flame-thrower if you have one, as its best for defeating the greasels, and kill them. Afterwards go back and tell the homeless lady the news. GOAL COMPLETED : 4 greasels killed After you meet with her, go back to the sewers that the greasels made their home with. Follow where it goes to a loading point. Climb the short ladder and break the crate on the left for a lockpick. Climb the next ladder out of the sewers to a town center patrolled by 3 MJ12 commandos. NOTE: In the building with a locked door you can find a telephone. 'Icarus' will call you up and give you a message. Kill the commandos then go into the subway station. Talk to the weapons dealer for another goal. GOAL ADDED : Kill the 3 MJ12 agents guarding the station Move towards the ATM's, hack them for cash if you want, turn right to find a security bot-patrolled hall. Destroy it and the 3 MJ12 should show themselves; kill them. There's a medbot in the office, along with some supply crates. After you use them head back to the dealer. GOAL COMPLETED : 3 MJ12 commandos killed Exit the subway station and search the bodies of the MJ12 commandos you killed. On one is a nano-key. Take it then use it on the door. If you can't find it or if you blew up the guy with the nano-key and cannot find it among the gore there is a boarded up back entrance in the alley. Either way you'll find a stairwell; climb down. For the first section of the catacombs the only thing you'll be doing is making a slow promenade through the tomb, casually killing off MJ12. No help needed. However once you reach an infinitely locked door, well, you'll need help. So, move back a bit and look up at the doorway to find a wine bottle on a ledge. The ledge is a brick that should be pushed. Push it; the door won't open, but something else will: a sliding door behind you that will reveal Silhouette's hideaway. Talk to the guards then go into the center chamber to find Chad, the Silhouette's leader. GOAL COMPLETED : Silhouette found GOAL ADDED : Rescue the 3 members of the Silhouette that have been taken hostage GOAL ADDED : Protect hostages as they make their way back to Chad's hideaway GOAL ADDED : After the rescue attempt, inform Chad of the hostages' fate Chad will give you that nano-key required to open the locked door. So pass through it and kill the pacing MJ12 commando. Afterwards proceed through the tunnels littered with bones to another bunker, this one bunker 2. In there is a bum who'll sell you medkits, so barter with him if you want then continue on to a place where Tong sends you a transmission describing an exit to the catacombs that has been closed off. There is a LAM halfway along that tunnel, don't even bother, but go into the entrance to the left of it. Drop the MJ12 agent and hie ('hie' is an Old English word...yes I know the spellcheck says it's wrong, and yes I don't exactly know what it means either) into the next tunnel to the right to find some tripwires. Use your Spy Drone on the wires, if you don't have that use your EMP frenade, or multitools, and if all else fails destroy the turret and pass right through. Through the next door you'll find the bunker in which the hostages have been taken. The area is heavily guarded, but make sure you kill each and every one before letting loose the hostages. The key to their cell is in the adjoining chamber on the table. Follow the hostages back to Chad's bunker, making sure they don't get themselves into any trouble. After their back go talk to Chad. GOAL COMPLETED : Hostages freed GOAL COMPLETED : Hostages escorted back to Chad GOAL COMPLETED : Chad informed of their fate Chad'll give you a nano-key for the exit to the catacombs. The exit is located near the bunker you're in; do some searching and you'll find it easily. Unlock and head through. • • • • • • • 7.14 Paris • • • • • • • Initial Primary Goals: -Find/make contact with Nicolete Duclare -Make contact with the former Illuminati leader Morgan Everette Initial Secondary Goals: -NONE- Enemies: Security bot MJ12 Commando Once again, you're in another sewer system. Sheesh, how many of these are there? Climb the first ladder you arrive at and exit the sewers from the hatch, but you'll have to use a lockpick or some serious firepower to get past it. Out the first hatch you'll, be in an alley of a large town. Move towards some ATM machines on the wall, watch out for the security bot. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Adam writes: I opted to ask Jaime Reyes to stay on at UNATCO - and he turned up in Paris. One of my objectives was to meet him at the cafe, where he told me that Gunther has a kill phrase. I don't know if you asked Jaime to leave UNATCO with you - in which case he presumably doesn't pop up in Paris. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ When you reach the hostel, in which Tong radio in and point out, enter it and find the bar behind the front desk. Talk to the drug dealers to receive a goal. GOAL ADDED : Steal the zyme from building 15 and bring it back to the dealers for cash Get back onto the main road and find an alley near the middle. Go through the loading point and walk towards building 15, which will have a number pad next to it saying so. Tong will point out it has electronic security. Break the entry and move towards the vents. Open them to find the zyme and some cash. Report back to the dealers, but refuse the first time. They'll offer again, this time for DOUBLE the asking price. Let 'em have it to make a nice profit. GOAL COMPELTED : Zyme stolen/returned to dealer Go back to building 15, this time find the club located next to the sidewalk at the other end of building 15. Enter it and pay the cover charge to enter. If you haven't the cash or are too cheap to pay, there is a back entrance in which you can blow open, though the explosion might attract the clubs bouncer. In the club, head up stairs and DON'T PAY ANY OF THE PARTY PEOPLE FOR INFORMATION. They are total rip-offs and the info they provide is either bull or simply something you already know or will know. Up stairs, find the girl sitting alone in a chair. Talk to her; she'll tell you she will talk to Nicolette and get her to meet you out behind the club. GOAL ADDED : Meet Nicolette behind the club Exit the club and meet the chick out back in the alley. Jock has conveniently landed. Talk to her, and find that she IS Nicolette. Move on to the Chateau using Jock's 'copter. As you take off you can see the pathetic Gunther scrambling to the position the chopper was in...a sad sight. I bet you can't wait to put him out of his misery, eh? Well, the wait is almost over... • • • • • • • • • • • • 7.15 Chateau Duclare • • • • • • • • • • • • Initial Primary Goals: -Search the chateau for evidence of the relationship between Everette and Beth Duclare -Find the former Illuminati leader Morgan Everette Initial Secondary Goals: -NONE- Enemies: MJ12 Commando At the chateau(pronounced chay-tow, if ya didn't know) enter the mansion, preferably through the back as it requires no lockpicks or explosives, and go up the steps and find Beth's room. It'll be locked, you can find the key behind a lamp in the upstairs hall to unlock it. In Beth's room grab the key to Nicolettes room on the shelf, then go to the painting. Open it to find a bunch of goodies, including a nano-key to the cellar. Don't forget the two datacubes, the one in the painting and the one near the leg of her bed. Go back to the hall and find the next locked door; open it to find Nicolettes room. Move the skull on her shelf to reveal a thermoptic camo and some other things(what was Nicolette doing with a thermoptic camo? Why, to sneak out when grounded! I need to get me one of those!). Go back downstairs to the kitchen. Open the way to the cellar to find a bunker. GOAL ADDED : Find the secret computer roor used by Beth Proceed through it to an entrance blocked by wood. If you don't feel like blowing it open or crouching around it use the 4 by 4 leading up to the vent, which will lead to the same place. NOTE: If you go through the 4 by 4's, Nicolette will follow, literally shattering the wood to peices. Huh, she is the one person you can call, and truly mean, dense. Use the computer, you should have the login, so send the signal. GOAL COMPLETED : Computer room found GOAL COMPLETED : Chateau searched for evidence Exit the chateau through the back way to find a maze.

There is a nano-key in here, among some wine bottles, for the front gate. Jump out the window with Speed Enhancement to break your fall and kill the surprised commando. Follow the road to a barrel with a fire in it. Take out your Spy Drone and fly it over to the military bot, then detonate it. If you don't have the Spy Drone or if it doesn't have a heavy enough EMP attack use a LAM/LAW/GEP on the military bot. After it is destroyed get the attention of the snipers on the bridge. They'll come and open a door to your left. Kill the on comers then head up the steps to the bridge and grab supplies and a sniper rifle to pick off MJ12 in the distance. When you're done sniping get back down to the road and follow it to the Templar Cathedral, a massive church-like building. There are two entrances; one is through the main door leading to barracks and the other through a trellis leading to a sky window. The area around the cathedral is watched with about 6 security bots so make your decision FAST. I would recommend using the trellis. In using the trellis you'll drop into a library, not having to blow through the guarded barracks in which the library is above. You may want to check out the barracks anyways for some weapon mods and ammo. Make your decision then go back into the library and head through the doorway. Turn left, kill the sniper, and go up the walkways to a dark hall patrolled by a sniper. Kill him then head down the walkways and enter the first doorway you'll come to. Descend the steps to find a vault door on your left. Its locked, of course, but note its also the place where the gold is stored. Unless you want to waste a lot of multitools, get the code from up the steps and through the unlocked door to a room with an MiB. The datacube is on the table. Now go back to the safe and open the doors. Run past the tripwires then run back; that's all you have to do to complete the goal. GOAL COMPLETED : Gold found Turn left at the safe to another room with an unlocked door watched by a camera and turret. Pass the camera and go through the locked door. You'll get a transmission from Gunther (remember him?) taunting you. Enter the next room to meet him face to face. After your chat he'll take out a flame- thrower. Needless to say, don't get too close. Take out a LAM or other explosive to spill his guts all over the floor. Afterwards hack onto the computer if you don't have a login and send the transmission to Morgan Everette. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Adam writes: If you remember, last time I emailed you I told you that I had met Jaime Reyes in Paris and he gave me Gunther Hermann's kill-phrase. Well, I had my doubts as to whether Jaime was on the level but he came through big time - I met [Gunther Hermann] in the Cathedral and [JC] said the kill phrase in the conversation .... and [Gunther] blew up! Awesome. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ GOAL COMPLETED : Transmission sent to Everette GOAL ADDED : Go to the metro station and await further instructions Exit the Templar back to the road. Find the subway station near the entrance to the cathedral courtyard and enter it. GOAL COMPLETED : Metro station entered and awaiting further instruction GOAL ADDED : Meet Tony Atanwe in the metro station There aren't any enemies in the metro, unless you decide to go on rouge cop- killing spree, which is always fun. In which case a pair of security bots will emerge. Anyway go down the hall and find the automatic door leading to the subway. Note there is a repair bot in a locked sliding door, and a crooked mechanic will sell you stolen mods through the break room. After finding Tony you'll be presented with an option, to find Everette on your own or have this Tony knock you out and take you to him. Well, it turns out its not an option and either way you'll be knocked out. When you awake you'll be in Everette's building. • • • • • • • • • • • • • 7.17 Everette's Hideout • • • • • • • • • • • • • Initial Primary Goals: -Find Morgan Everette Initial Secondary Goals: -NONE- Enemies: -NONE- It should be fairly easy to find Everette. If you need help, well uh...LOL. However there is a small bedroom near the kitchen. In it is a painting. Blow it open with the PS20 on the table and find a man in cryogenic storage. Don't ask me. GOAL ADDED : Tell Everette to adjust the temperature Go to Everette and tell him that. GOAL COMPLETED : Everette told GOAL ADDED : Tell the man in storage he is not to be released Heheh, that should reveal a few things about Everette's character, though I won't spoil anything here. Go tell the man in storage what Everette told you. GOAL COMPLETED : Man in storage told Note: You can shut down the man in storage's life support, using the security terminal. Doesn't make any difference, though. You should have gotten a key now from Everette. Don't forget to visit Alex and the medbot, and you may want to check out the mysterious AI in the room adjacent to Alex. Afterwards go back to the point where you started the level. Go to the infinitely locked door and unlock it. In the helicopter bay talk to the 'Odd Mechanic'. He will be very agitated and openly nervous. He will also mention several times there is nothing wrong with the helicopter so 'don't worry about it!'. Uh-huh, that should tip you off. Go to the barrels to find a dead mechanic. When the connection is made in your little brain kill the odd mechanic and talk to Jock. As expected, he'll find a bomb onboard that would have killed him in Area 51, a place several levels away. Board the chopper to the Vandenberg Airforce Base. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • 7.18 Vandenberg Airforce Base • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • Initial Primary Goal: -Destroy all the bots that are keeping the base under lock-down Initial Secondary Goal: -Activate backup power for the X-51 scientists' bot security system Enemies: Security Bot Military Bot Spider Bot MJ12 Commando MJ12 Trooper MiB You'll start out on the roof of Vandenberg. A scientist will talk to you, giving you your secondary objective. I wrote it as starting goal because, well, it practically is. You have a decision. If you don't want to complete the secondary goal you're going to have to come up with a lot of GEPs, LAWs, LAMs, EMP grenades, or Spy Drone power. All bots are located directly below on the ground, and your going to have to take each one out like you normally would, so you don't need the following walkthrough(which explains the secondary goal). After you destroy the bots scroll down to "GOAL COMPLETED : All bots destroyed" and read on. For those of us who like to go the extra mile and would like to complete the secondary goal, read below. I promise you'll get a great reward and relief. Go through the door and climb down the stairs. Destroy the turret and camera and proceed through the next two anterooms, killing off local pests, e.g. UNATCO agents. When you arrive at the elevator take it to Level 2. Kill the MiB and MJ12 on the floor and descend the walkways leading down. You'll find the first switch for one of two generators needed to activate the backup power to the X-51 bot system. Press it. Go through the double doors and make your way out of the base. Turn on Radar Transparency or Speed Enhancement(to get by the bots) and turn left towards the last generator, guarded by a couple of snipers in a tower. The switch will be in an unlocked power box. Press it. GOAL COMPLETED : X-51 bot system given backup power Alright backtrack to the entrance to the base and head north towards a pair of military bots. No, I am not crazy. RUN to the shed to the left and press the button to open its door. You'll find a pair of inactive military bots. Activate them by pressing both switches. Here's your promised reward: The X-51 bots will take care of all the MJ12 bots for you, as they are invincible. And you also get a cookie, but please claim that at the end of the FAQ. GOAL COMPLETED : All bots destroyed GOAL ADDED : Go to the communications center to gain access to Gary Savage The other shed is the communications center, open when all bots are destroyed. Through the loading point, talk to the scientists. GOAL COMPLETED : Comm center entered GOAL ADDED : Use the tunnels to find key to the control room GOAL ADDED : Enter the control room and Find Gary Savage GOAL ADDED : Uplink Daedalus to the military computers near the control room Enter the hatch in the back of the communications center(but not before gearing up). In the tunnel avoid or destroy the spider bot to a set of tripwires. Use an EMP grenade, bypass the terminal, or just run through the tripwires. If you run through them spider bots will appear and the door will slowly begin to close. Get through the door fast as it doesn't open again. Let it close on the bots. Go through the loading point then through the radioactive hall(you can bypass the radioactive hall, if you don't have the health to waste, using lockpicks on the door to your left. Depending on your skill level, it varies from 9 to 3 lockpicks needed). At the end you'll find a pair of un-bridged platforms. To get to the other side, if you lack the appropriate running skills, you're going to have to use the lift operator. The lift operator is located down the walkways and past the tripwires. Set the lift to "3" and it will bridge the platforms. Across disable the spider bot then find the dead scientist. Take the mission- critical nano-key and go up the ladder to arrive back at Vandenberg. GOAL COMPLETED : Tunnels use to find key Well the point of going through the tedious tunnels was to get the nano-key. Head up to Level 2 and find the infinitely locked door. Unlock it with the nano-key and go through. Go past the PC and head up the steps to find Savage & company. Talk to him. GOAL COMPLETED : Tunnels used to find key to control room GOAL COMPLETED : Savage found Grab the nano-key on the cart to the right of Carter, then descend the stairwell to the lowest level. You'll find a small air-conditioned room with a fan. Blow away the fan and go through the hole. Drop down to the second level and go to the PC, but watch the electrical outbursts, which can be disabled using the power terminal. Savage gave you a user name so log in and upload Daedalus. NOTE: If you don't have any explosives you can use lockpicks, if you have neither you're going to have to go back to Carter and towards the cart with the nano key. Go through the door to the left to another electrical outburst room. Take the lift up and go to the mission critical PC. GOAL COMPLETED : Daedalus Uploaded GOAL ADDED : Meet back with Save as Bob Page will send you a message Go back to Savage and to the hologram machine to find Bob Pages ugly face taunting you. Ah, as blue as the sky does Bob patronize you. GOAL COMPLETED : Bob Pages message heard GOAL ADDED : Meet with Jock in the Northeast section of the base Exit the compound to the outside, where you destroyed the bots. Jock will be in the far Northeast section. Meet up with him. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • 7.19 Abandoned Gas Station • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • Initial Primary Goals: -NONE- Initial Secondary Goals: -Rescue Savages daughter Enemies: MJ12 Commando MiB Dogs UNATCO Agents Ahead of you are some bums huddling around a fire. You might also find Sandra Renton (ya know, the rebellious hooker-girl from the 'Ton) if you saved her from JoJo. Talk to the male bum to get a nano-key and he'll offer you some supplies. Buy what you want then go back to the locked sewer entrance. Unlock it with the key and climb the ladder inside to pipe to arrive at the Gas Station. You must be stealthy here, otherwise the MiB will kill Savages daughter. Take out a quite weapon, notably a stealth pistol or knife, and slay the first UNATCO guard. Go around to the other side of the gas station and through a gate. Kill the dogs and guard then climb the ladder to the roof. You can enter the building you're in, but it only has supplies, and not much at that. So jump across to the next buildings roof. CROUCH, the take out a machine gun/heavy weapon/something you're good at killing MiB's with the drop down and let your guns go a blazin'. Kill everyone in sight, except for Savages daughter, who's in the small cell. Talk to her and tell her to wait where she is while you clear out the perimeter. GOAL COMPLETED : Savages daughter rescued GOAL ADDED : Meet up with Jock in the junkyard With Savages daughter safe you may go going into a loud and wild killing spree. Or not. Whatever just make sure everyone is dead. Go back to Savages daughter and tell her to break for Jocks copter. GOAL COMPLETED : Jock met with • • • • • • • • • 7.20 Ocean Lab • • • • • • • • • Initial Primary Goals: -Steal a mini sub from the URV module and take it to ocean lab -Recover the schematic Gary Savage needs to finish a Universal Constructor with Initial Secondary Goals: -NONE- Enemies: MiB Military bot MJ12 trooper Walter Simons Karkian Greasel Dispose of the military bots with whatever means are available to you, then go to the center of the patrolled area. Enter through the door and up a set of winding stairs. You will come to a small lab. Kill off the local MJ12 then talk to all the scientists for information and passwords. Find a set of ladders going down. Climb them to the bottom to reach a loading point. Get past the turret watched halls and you'll find another lab with several more scientists, bustling round doing their thing. Talk to the female to get a login and password then climb the stairs, killing as necessary. Progress on 'til you find the sub bay. One is under construction, the other is operable. First you're going to have to open the bay doors using the security terminal by the mechanic. You got the login from the female scientist but if not just hack it. After you open the doors press the X button on the mini sub. Too bad you can't ride it :( GOAL COMPLETED : Mini-sub stolen At Ocean lab head up the stairs. There are two doors, but they only lead to a karkian observatory. So head up the next set of stairs, all the way to the top. Go through the unlocked door to a room watched by a turret that cannot be shut off. Destroy it then head through the door to another turret watched room. The locked door ahead of you is what you need to enter, but unless you want to waste a lot of lockpicks, get the key from the supply room in the hall next to the turret. Pass through the door to a greasel lab. Take out your flame-thrower and set on fire the greasels let loose. Climb into the water using the ladder. Use some multitools on the security pad, or you can find the datacube w/ the code in the adjoining room. Exit the water to a loading point. Climb the steps to find a small room with electricity running wild. Avoid it best you can through the door(don't forget about the datacube on the table). From here, make your way past some turrets and down some ladders to a half finished mining tunnel. To the right entrance is a karkian and nano-key for the door. Enter the door(watch for greasel) and go on until you find a large spider bot. Deactivate it using a Spy Drone or whatever lies in your inventory (ignore the lifts to the far left and right...they lead to nothing but a radioactive rooms watched by many spider bots, the only reward being some sparse supplies). Go to the lift and take it up. Destroy the two turrets and go to the security terminal/hack it to extend the bridge, if you don't feel like jumping across. Approach the Universal Constructor and you'll get a transmission from Everette telling you to login into the PC to the left. Do so and upload the UC schematics into JC's brain. GOAL COMPLETED : UC Schematics recovered GOAL ADDED : Meet with Jock and Savage on the outside roof of the Ocean Lab Now head all the way back to the half finished mining tunnel to find Walter Simons himself in a face off. Take out a LAM or GEP or LAW or anything that is explosive and use it against him. He tote's a plasma rifle, in which a direct head hit can take away all your health, so there is no time to play with him. You can also draw him into the track and turn on the electricity, but that's too damaging. After that cocky bastard Simons is dead, backtrack all the way to the mini- sub. Take it back to the other lab. From there backtrack to the place where the friendly scientists talked to you/where the MiB were. There is a walkway and ladder leading to the roof, use them to find Savage and Jock. GOAL COMPLETED : Savage and Jock met with • • • • • • • • • • 7.21 Missile Silo • • • • • • • • • • Initial Primary Goals: -Abort the launch sequence of the nuclear missile Initial Secondary Goals: -NONE- Enemies: MiB Dog Security Bot MJ12 commando MJ12 trooper Howard Strange Start out by circling the wooden enclosure to find some dogs and an indestructible hatch. Kill the dogs and approach the building ahead of you. Before entering you may want to listen in on the troops' conversation. Otherwise take out flame-thrower and set fire those around the table. Pick up the nano-key and ammo then head up. Use the security pad to get to the attic if you want, but either way go out onto the walkway. Destroy the bots and guards in the area then enter the other wooden enclosure. The main door is locked, but you can lockpick it or use the lift, at the cost of some multitools. If you have none, there is an alternate route. Go to the building with the walkway connected to it, the other one that you weren't on. In there is a vent. Enter it and out to find some steps. Head to the bottom and enter the silo control center. Go down the hall, ignoring the pointless tripwires, killing the MiB and MJ12 in the area. Head to the left to a locked bathroom. Open it to find a datacube with a login and password to the missile launch terminal. Climb the stairs to it and press the red abort key. Now hack the terminal, or use the login you can get from the bathroom, and reprogram the launch. GOAL ADDED: Make sure no one interferes with the launch of the missile Exit the missile control center to the missile silo. You can either a) blast your way up the walkways to the top where a certain Howard Strange is tampering with the launch, or b) use the vent in the main hall to land in some water. Form here press the underwater button to make the lift descend to your level. Go to the 3rd floor, clear it out, and safely snipe Howard with no trouble(he carries a plasma rifle). GOAL COMPLETED : Launch sequence secured GOAL ADDED : Meet Jock outside the silo Get on the lift and take it to level 6. Clear the level out and climb the ladder. You'll go through a loading point and find that you were in the indestructible hatch I mentioned earlier. Now go meet with Jock. • • • • • • • • 7.22 Area 51 • • • • • • • • Initial Primary Goals: -Get past the blast doors to the north of the helipad -Gain Access to the Area 51 bunker Initial Secondary Goals: -NONE- Enemies: MJ12 Commando MJ12 Troopers MiB Greasel Karkian Gray Security Bot Bob Page If you killed the mechanic at Everette's hideout and Jock found the bomb, nothing will happen. If not, the bomb will go off killing Jock. Nothing game altering will occur, but its noteworthy. Spot the sniper up in the tower and kill him. Go to the tower door and destroy it. Head to the top to the security terminal, hack it and open the blast doors. Enter the blast doors t the east, avoiding turrets and security bots along the way. GOAL ADDED : Activate power to the elevator system That goal isn't required; you can drop from pipe to pipe to ledge to pipe to the bottom, but only if you have a lot of health, bio energy, level 4 speed enhancement, and a helluva lotta skill and patience. To activate the lift's power go into the tunnel to the right. You'll find a security bot, take it out. The button that activates the power is through the locked door on the left. Use a TNT crate to blow its door open. If you don't feel comfortable that way, as I sure didn't, go in through the roof, but note you'll have to battle a mini-spider bot. Any way you choose press the button. GOAL COMPLETED : Elevator power activated Go to the elevator and take it to the bottom. Go through the blast door using the switch and passing a loading point. Talk to Everette on the hologram display. You'll get one of three ending objectives. GOAL ADDED : (Join the Illuminati) Kill Bob Page That goal is something you do not have to do if you don't want to. That is only one of the three endings; I would here the others goals out first before choosing. Head into the tunnel to the left. You'll face a turret and security bot. Destroy both and proceed to the end of the tunnel. Kill the guards then go the sector 3 blast door. It'll be locked at 90% strength, requiring at least 4 lockpicks on the Advanced difficulty. If you don't have the lockpicks go back into the tunnel and through the door saying Break Room(you have the code from Everette). Kill the MiB and get a code from the nano-key. Exit the room and go to the barracks. There you'll find some locked sleeping quarters. In one of them is the nano-key; take a look. You also have the code to unlock that one. In here also is a aug upgrade if you want it. With the key, go to and through sector 3's entrance. Move to the lift and it will come up with sever MiBs and Mj12 troopers. Kill them then take the lift down. Talk to Tracer Tong to receive another optional ending. GOAL ADDED : (New Dark Age) Destroy Area 51 to destroy global communication Go through the entrance and through the locked door to the left to an anteroom. There is another locked door, unlock it too. Kill the greasel in the pool then take a dive to the bottom. Get a code from the datacube/get the nano-key. Now proceed back to the main part of sector 3, and go through the door to the right of the hologram Tong was on. Head up the steps and Helios will contact you. GOAL ADDED : Talk to Helios How comforting. Merging with a computer :|. Know what's stupid? He says 'Go meet me' yet he keeps his door infinitely locked. What an ass this AI is! Oh well. Go to the Reactor Lab guarded by a mini-spider bot. Go through the door with the code you got underwater. Kill the grays and proceed past the antimatter reactors to the mechanic. DO NOT KILL HIM!!! Talk to him and you'll get the code to Aquinas Reactor. Go to the Aquinas Reactor. You'll find Helios at the top of a large chamber in which you'll have to take the lift up to. Talk to him. GOAL COMPLETED : Helios spoken with GOAL ADDED : (Join Helios) Deactivate the uplinks on the Aquinas Reactor to allow Helios to merge with you Alright, this is it; time to pick one of the three possible endings... ---------------------------- (New Dark Age) Tong's Ending ---------------------------- Helios will have opened sector 4 by now. Find it on your map and get to it. From the beginning of Sector 4, make your through the Cloning Center to Bob Page himself in some kind of force-field. After a small discussion turrets will activate. Run past them to the right of Page to find a lift. Take it down and take out your flame-thrower, and use it to kill the floors' greasel and karkian. Proceed to the universal constructor. Enter the blast doors saying 'Coolant B13'. Proceed down the corridor, taking out MJ12 commando's and such. There is a button on a console saying 'Flush System'. Press it then return to the reactor labs in sector 3. If you haven't been there before look on your map for 'Reactor Core' and make your way there. Put on Environmental Resistance or hazmat suite then jump to the below reactors. Deal with the grays then press both reactors' 'Failsafe' switch's. Then go up to the office overlooking the reactors. Press the button on the wall. Wait for the next to open. Press that, then the final. Another button will unlock itself on the console. Press it to finish off Area 51 in a beautiful CG cutscene. [Credit 'diablogamer' on the GameFAQs Deus Ex PS2 board for helping me find the 'Flush Systems' switch] ---------------------------------- (Merge with Helios) Helios' Ending ---------------------------------- Proceed to the left of the Universal Constructor in the floor below Page(use the lift to get there), inhabited by hordes of karkian and greasel. Turn left and enter the blast door using the button. In the chamber it leads to, kill off the grays. You'll soon receive a transmission from Helios giving further instruction. Go to the machines on both sides of the Aquinas Router chamber and press both the buttons. This will unlock the PC. Hack it and press X on the download option. Now return to Helios. End game. ----------------------------------- (Join Illuminati) Everette's Ending ----------------------------------- This one is the most complicated of the three. You're going to need at least 10 multitools, because you are going to have to deactivate 4 bluish canisters using the 'tools at 2 apiece. The location of the 4 canisters are as follows: 1. To the right of the chamber Page is in, to the right of the lift. Some security bots will emerge once deactivated. 2. Take the lift down to the place below Page's augmentation chamber. Its on the wall to the right side under a yellow outline. 3. At the bottom of Pages chamber, near #2, is an incline leading to a room filled with radiation. Put on a hazmat suite or Environmental resistance and go to the blue fusion canister. 4. The last fusion can is in the adjoining room to #3. After you deactivate Page's coolant systems return to Pages chambers. Proceed past him to another UC. Turn right a balcony overlooking Page. Press the button on the console and the game will end with a stunning CG cutscene. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- END GAME ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- No matter which ending you chose, I hope you enjoyed this game and I hope this FAQ helped you through it.

You got me, but I took the time to write this so read on! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Deus Ex...words that for so long have been PC only. We all know how great it was on PC, but how does it fare on a less powerful PS2? Read on to find out. Presentation 6/10 Good, easy to learn controls that make you trigger happy. I never once had to look at my controller to find out which button opens a door or which reloads my gun. A simple menu system, but it gets the job done, though the saving times can be a pain. Loading times occur every time you enter a new area; they are long and very annoying. Every level has at the very least 3 and sometimes 8 or even 10 at most. This is the one of the reasons this department did not get a great score. As for in-game presentation, all I can say is detail, detail detail. Everything in the game can be used, wether it be a lightswitch, computer terminal, flag pole, microscope, newspaper you name it and it can be interacted with. This game, like most games with speech, has some questionable lip-synching, but that can be overlooked. Its not NEARLY as bad as lip synching in Final Fantasy X. Now THAT's a nightmare, but, well that also is a different game. Despite the lip-synching, the speech in this game is awesome...Eidos really hired quality voice talent. J.C.'s voice is one of them most memorable I've ever heard. One of the main reasons I gave this category such a mediocre score was because of all the glitches. Things disappearing in front of your eyes, system lock- ups, stuttering framerate in certain area's, dead guards getting stuck in walls. Its really ridiculous sometimes and occasionally unplayable. You'll get used to it, but glitches are glitches nonetheless. On a side note, if you play through the entire game you'll notice NOT ONCE will you EVER be in the daytime...this is a +/- thing, but a minus for me. I would really have liked to see Paris in the bright sunshine. Graphics 6/10 A real problem with Deus Ex is the FPS (frames per second). It only runs at 30 and in heavy action can drop momentarily to 10 or even 5, making gameplay hard. A lot of textures are blurry, and not a lot of effort was put into weapon detail and human faces. Its really average...nothing really terrible, but nothing eye-poping either. I do think ION Storm was rushed to get this done on time. If they hadn't been rushed imagine what this game could have been... On the bright side, nothing looks pixilated except the cartoonish blood affects, and everything else is fine, fresh backgrounds and close attention to detail. There were some glitches, such as guards getting stuck in walls, or a floating dead body. There were even times where the entire game would lock up. This however came with a LOT of playing time and it deosn't occur too often, but it happens nonetheless. Sound 8/10 I loved the original menu music for PC, and it being remixed for PS2 it sounds even better. As for in game, this is also detailed. Enemy grunts and voices sound smooth, and voice acting is just plain awesome. Lots of detail, such as wind or opening doors, machine gargles and the usual noises from a computer. On the down side, the music through every level can get repetitious...its simply used in too many levels. A little more variety and you got yoursefl a symphony of excellence. Back on the bright side, the music matches the situations: in a dark section of the city where corruption runs wild, the music is set as dark, slow, and moody, which just gets ya into the want to play. Gameplay 9/10 Ahh...here's where it all comes together. An awesome storyline coupled with awesome play mechanics and you got yourself a gem here. There's not a lot to describe; you just have to play it to see. Though enemy AI is not the smartest at times, they often call for help or run for alarms when damaged. They don't work together, which is a disappointment, but they do surrender occasionally and know when to run away. There is a nice level design also. You never get the feeling you just played a level previously. Goals are intelligent and fun to complete, as are the optional secondary Goals. What I really love about this games is the amount of ways you can complete Goals. For example, if you encounter a coded and locked door there's a few things you can do. You can hack it open with a multitool. Maybe there a computer nearby you can hack to open the door. Maybe search for a nano-key. You can find a hidden ventilation shaft or sewer system to get past it. Or maybe the door can be blown open. Or maybe there is a contact or datacube somewhere with the password. Or maybe you don't need to enter. The list goes on about the open-ended-ness of this game. You can try and disable the security systems or find an alternate, less watched route. You can blow through a heavily guarded area or go underground and find a tunnel going to get to the same place. This is the best part of this game. With the skills upgrade option and augmentations customized to your style of play, a lot of depth is added to the game. You can be a stealthy and deadly hacker or a full-blown Arnold Swarshenagger (sp?) blowing everyone to . Overall 9/10 Though the graphics are cheap and not a lot of attention was paid to it in this rushed port, the gameplay more than makes up for it. An all-and-all solid game with an awesome storyline, this game is one of the greatest I have played, surpassing even the god-like game called Half-Life. Simply put, you must own this game. ______ ________ _____ ______ | | 0000993 /// | | 00004000904 | | 0123000 | | ¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯¯ 10) Thank Yous ______ ________ _____ ______ | | 0000993 /// | | 00004000904 | | 0123000 | | ¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯ ¯¯¯¯¯¯ Adrenaline SL [Writer - GameFAQs] For being a great author and influence.
