Post Has anyone seen this Deus Ex 1 CD design before?
Found this and I thought it was odd, can't find any other examples of it.

It lacks a rating and the spot where "game of the year" is normally found on a similar designed disk.

The closet disk's I've found to it are the GOTY release edition of the game and the soundtrack.

I think perhaps the "Game of the Year" text might not be visible simply because of the angle/camera?

Probably a European disc, they have other rating systems there and AFAIK don't print the rating on-disc but use a sticker on the box.

That sounds like a reasonable explanation. I actually bought it so i guess I'll find out :p

The lack of the ugly rating block is pretty nice

Hm well it's not the same design as the disc I have, but who knows - there are other countries in Europe, and most of them are weird.

I got the cd, I can confirm there is no GOTY text, that isn't some form of picture error. Gonna pop it in and check it out.

Edit: the installer says its a "preview" edition. I'm not sure if its the same as the "special" edition that was sold, but like that it does only contain five levels. I might buy a special edition disk to compare, only like 5$

the Version# is 1.003f_OEM5. Can't find any info on it except that one patch doesn't apply to it.

Does the CD have any specials on it, like desktop themes, etc.?

I heard before that stores sold demo versions of the game disguised as the full version at near full price. Either that, or it's some other game or I'm crazy.
