Like the other GO titles previously released, this perfectly adapts the tenets of its namesake series into a challenging puzzle game. Deus Ex GO takes the core mechanics of the Deus Ex games -- specifically, the cyberpunk-influenced stealth action aspects -- and expertly adapts them into something both series fans and puzzle aficionados will enjoy. Taking turns, you have to help our hero, Adam Jensen, sneak past guards, automatic turrets, and other obstacles as he tries to rescue a hostage from some terrorists. Not surprisingly, the scenarios get increasingly more difficult as you progress, adding new elements that work both for and against you. Oh, and if the included puzzles aren't hard enough, players can also make their own and share them with other people.

That said, it does have some minor issues. Most notably, the game sometimes doesn't explain things well, like how to hack auto-turrets. Some players might also find the latter puzzles to be especially difficult. But if you've enjoyed previous games in both the GO and Deus Ex series, you'll find the puzzles in Deus Ex GO to be as intriguing and clever as they are challenging.
