Deus Ex: The Fall

Deus Ex: The Fall is the most console-like game available on iOS, but touchscreen controls are more frustration than augmentation

Deus Ex: The Fall is Square Enix’s attempt to create a console experience for mobile devices. A first-person action RPG with upgrades, moral choices and multiple endings, squeezed down for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Although an impressive technical achievement, touchscreen controls sadly make the game’s combat a frustrating chore, and spoil what is an otherwise very polished game.

The Fall is a brand new adventure that runs in parallel to Deus Ex: Human Revolution. You play as Ben Saxon, an ex-SAS soldier who receives augmentations to help him work in the private military sector.

Deus Ex’s key gameplay features have made the move to mobile, which is particularly impressive given how deep the series is. This is a proper role-playing experience, with a skill tree that you can upgrade as you progress depending on your style of gameplay.

Deus Ex’s control system has been adapted for touchscreen controls, with your left thumb used for movement and your right thumb for looking around. You can also double-tap on the screen to make your character run to a certain spot.

Deus Ex: The Fall is an open world game; you can choose to take on side missions for more credits and rewards, or you can just ignore them. You can also choose different dialogue options when talking to characters, and upgrade your conversational abilities so that you can convince them to do your bidding.
