  • Oh so dimensions aren't actually the same things as portals. Portals connect space, and dimensions means different versions of the same environment. So yeah. I think you could compare that Jenny whats her name game to like wearing night vision goggles in games, or in Zelda when you time travel.

    Also Luke is right about Deus Ex being a lot like Metal Gear Solid. Its pretty interesting how its almost as much a sequel to that franchise as it is to Deus Ex. I think the first person to third person shifts are effectively a direct evolution of MGS1's camera shifts from top down, to facing Snake as he wall hugs. In first person mode you're able to explore the environment, while in third person mode you're able to observe enemy soldiers and execute stealth.

    In a way it answers game mechanic questions that Kojima never could. It has all the tension and intrigue MGS1 and the best of 2, but not as janky weirdness of MGS3 and 4.
