Like many gamers you likely have very fond memories of the original Deus Ex and have replayed the first level in the last few years, only to abandon it because it really isn't that pretty compared to what you are used to.  This could change as of today, with the official release of the Give Me Deus Ex mod.  Not only do the textures and lighting effects look much better, there are a variety of bug fixes and AI enhancements to make the game more interesting.  You will need the GoTY Edition of the first Deus Ex, grab it from Steam or GOG depending on your preference.  Rock, Paper, SHOTGUN has links to the ModDB download page as well as a link to the Deus Ex: Revision mod, a different non-compatible projects which adds extra gameplay features.

Take a peek at the Humble Bundle link just below the video as well, it is a decent bargain and you help us keep the lights on too!

"After years of development, the overhaul mod Give Me Deus Ex has launched its final version. GMDX shakes things up with more-advanced AI for a tougher challenge, improved mantling for agile Dentons, expanded physics for fancier mayhem, and new textures and bits for people who say “Ew, is that a pixel?”"

I wonder how this compares with Dues Ex: Revision. An authorized reworking on the original. (Also available on Steam)

That's why I mentioned both, hoping someone with more free time that I will be able to offer an opinion.

REVISION seems the far better choice. It's easy to add via Steam, looks/runs great, and according to THIS site has more changes than the above mod though perhaps not every change the above mod does.

"If you fancy a Deus Ex which changes a little more, have a look at the Deus Ex: Revision mod. It makes far bigger changes to the world, reshaping bits and adding a lot more detail, while also tweaking its gameguts a little and adding new modes like New Game+ and wave survival arenas."

Also, just based on the trailer, some of the ground and wall textures look ugly to me. I found the REVISION mod choices blended well with the original theme while also looking better.
