Despite the dated graphics and voice acting that is somewhat wooden by today's standards, the intro to Deus Ex is pretty much pitch perfect. It lays out the intrigue, the factions, and the conflicts going on in the world. Once you take control, you're infiltrating Liberty Island and learning how the game controls and plays. It's a great setup for a great game.
