    The latest installment in the hugely popular Deus Ex video game series, 'Deus Ex: The Fall' has landed on iPhone and iPad slightly ahead of schedule.

    The Fall is the first Deus Ex game to be released first on mobile devices, picking up where the book 'Deus Ex: The Icarus Effect' finishes.

    Our sister-site TouchArcade tried the game at E3 and found it very promising:
    Deus Ex: The Fall is available on iPhone and iPad for $6.99 from the App Store. [Direct Link]

    I didn't ask for any of this....



    Wait, that doesn't look like Adam.


    What a shame....

    I'd quite like it if the guys in that demo video were able to read the on screen instructions.

    Watching a man batter his left finger against the screen, which is asking for a right thumb press is somewhat disheartening.

    That said, this looks pretty great and when I get around to playing HR, I could be tempted by a portable extension.

    Jumped on this as soon as I found out the game came out a day early. I'm excited to jump into this after work today. I opened it briefly before and it looks great.

    Always love seeing more Square Enix software.

    Very nice, downloading... and I can imagine that with some of the fanbase that the Deus Ex series has, a lot of mom's-basement-gamers will devote a lot of their time on hating Square Enix for the decision of making an iOS game :D .

    Getting a game like this for $7 is insanity. Great time to be a gamer! iPads, iPhones, Oculus VR, Kinect, next-gen consoles on the way, and maybe apps soon for AppleTV? (On the flip side... Facebook and Zynga. Oh, well.)

    And yet there are still people who complain about the price and say they will wait for a sale. Times never change, no matter what platform you're buying for.

    Ooh, HR is amazing, one of my all time faves! This can't download fast enough! :)

    Sorta feel it's slightly the wrong sort of game for iOS though. A game like this demands your full attention, I'd rather have games that don't suffer from frequent pausing, or turn based games, on iOS. That's probably why XCOM works. A decent version of Civ would be awesome too.

    In my experience, FPS PC games don't translate well to a touch based format. I think this is just a money grab. Milk the tablet world for as much as they can get, and then release the game for PCs. The last version of Deus Ex was pretty good. That doesn't mean this version will be, and it will most likely suck on tablets whether it's good on PC or not. IMHO.

    Agreed and I'm pretty well exclusively an iPhone gamer now.

    It looks a bit like the first time I saw Halo on an Xbox. I couldn't stop thinking "this is a Mac/PC game and it sux big time having to use a gamepad rather than a keyboard/mouse!!"

    Love seeing ambitious projects like this coming to tablet and mobile. This looks like the whole Deus Ex experience for £5. Amazing.

    On a side note, can't see how on earth people can play FPS games on the big iPad. So uncomfortable.

    I don't know about others, but I use an iPad Mini. It has never seemed too bad.

    Yes, because we aren't getting it on PC. Deus Ex is one of PC's most beloved franchises; putting a dumbed down version of it on iOS hurts for those who've been playing since the original game. I'm sure it isn't bad at all - I just bought it - but I wish Eidos had put their effort into a DXHR sequel rather than a version which can never hold a candle to the original, or even Invisible War, because of the platform's limitations.

    It's a completely different developer who made the game with the help of the author from the DX:HR prequel novel using largely recycled art assets. It's pure naivete to say that Square Enix is "diverting resources" to make this game, and the way that the PC gaming community is panning it without playing it is making me ashamed to be a PC gamer.

    $7 is insane!!! It should be no more than 99 cents!! <joking> You pay for what you get, generally. Professional Developers don't work for free - their employers have to pay them - its still hard to get good mobile developers.

    Some games that are available on iOS devices are very impressive, especially recently - XCom.

    These days, consoles, especially handhelds have a lot of competition... I don't see handhelds lasting for too much longer. Smartphones and tablets will replace them. The iPod Touch is a great gaming platform.

    AppleTV apps are coming soon I'm sure... Not sure what is holding back Apple.

    Between this, ports of XCOM, KotOR, and Baldur's Gate, and other 'franchise extensions' such as Mass Effect and Dead Space, the iPad is becoming quite the way to pass the time.
