Deus Ex GO ($4.99) was one of the most highly anticipated releases of the Summer, and for good reason. The precedent set by Square Enix’s other GO series games – with Lara Croft GO ($4.99) especially being one of the best games of 2015 – suggested it would be an essential download, and the Deus Ex series has its own pedigree, even if the recent console entry in the franchise didn’t hit the same heights as previous titles. While we may have been somewhat disappointed with the lack of innovation in our review for Deus Ex GO last month, it was still an extremely entertaining experience, that took the elements of what makes the GO titles so perfect for mobile gameplay, and placed them perfectly into the Deus Ex universe. If anyone was on the fence regarding Deus Ex GO, it has today gone on sale for $1.99, which is a perfect opportunity for cynics, fans, or anyone short on funds to see what he game has to offer.
While the App Store description describes this Deus Ex GO sale as a ‘limited time’ offer, based on previous sales by Square Enix, it’d be wise to act sooner rather than later if you would like to take advantage of the new price for the title. A sale for the other GO games back in August only lasted a couple of hours, to the disappointment of a significant proportion of readers who may have been working during the price drop period. Despite its flaws, Deus Ex GO is a high quality, well-executed premium puzzler, and at a price of $1.99 is a no-brainer in my book.
