Its Alright, But It Isn't Much Of An Inprovement Overall.combodombie | March 5, 2014 | See all combodombie's reviews »
Deus Ex is one of the most acclaimed stealth games of all time, yet it's sequel leaves a lot to be desired. It's graphics and sound hold up much better than the first game, but this game abandons the stealth elements for a mostly clunky and generic FPS. Wait until it goes on sale and get it then.
A decent sequel that sticks with the same Deus Ex feelhomes223 | Feb. 5, 2014 | See all homes223's reviews »
Deus Ex:Invisible War sets you as Alex Denton, a young student at Tarsus who is biomoded and very elite. You make many choices in this game and each has its own reprocusions. If you kill a trader later in the game his friends may not be too happy and instead of helping you they will turn on you and you must survive.
The graphics have a futuristic feel along with the environment. The game does this very well with great lighting but some objects in the world could have looked better. The physics are very sand boxy and can be fun whilst in a fire fight but the objects and bodies in the game react poorly like they are weightless.
The weapons and biomods are very fun and add a cool RPG element to Invisible War. You can modify you weapons with 10 mods including silencers, glass destabliizers, and EMP shots. There are around 15 skills that you can get from biomods. Most are pretty basic but cool skills like Hacking, Health Regeneration, and Environmental Danger Resistance are avaliable.
With all the open world choices and fun gameplay comes the bog down of A.I. The NPCs play a major role in the game due to the fact that they let you make choices and give you quests. The sad part is that these A.I. are almost brain dead. You can throw bodies at them and they will stand there like nothing happened. The A.I. can also glitch and get stuck in walls and other various bugs can occur. Speaking of bugs I got a game stopping bug that reverted my save to the start of an area and TOOK EVERY SINGLE THING from my inventory. This is just ludacris, seeing as this was AFTER I had patched.
While I wanted to love Deus Ex:Invisible War as much as the original the A.I. and bugs held me back. If you are willing to risk your time and want a open and rewarding Shooter try out, Deus Ex:Invisible War.
Pros+ RPG elements, Tons of Choices, Weapon Mods, Graphics, Futuristic Setting done right
Cons- Loading Screens, A.I., Game ending Glitches + Bugs, Shorter than the first

Invisible War is a second tittle in Deus Ex series,sadly it didn't rise the weight of first Deus Ex.Character development is simplified compared to the first game,which is a flaw...enemies aren't as challenging as well.
The strong part of the game is its story,not as great but good and kept me in front of the monitor.Graphics...hmmm for some reason,even that their newer than the first game didn't stand their ground against the time.To summarize Invisible war is decent just not as good as the first Deus Ex,although if you enjoyed first game you might somewhat like it.
Solid and good gameVerdungo | Sept. 14, 2013 | See all Verdungo's reviews »
There is more action than RPG style gameplay, but still the story is really nice and I got alot of fun with this title. Biggest problem for me was the console style inventory, but it get to used to it. Graphics still looks nice, it's aged but doesn't scary. Game is short and dynamic, so it's good for intense play in weekend. Could be better, could have different title than DX, but at all it's a good game. I've finished it few times and still got fun with nice gameplay and story.
Good, but not great.crankafoo | Aug. 14, 2013 | See all crankafoo's reviews »
It falls a little flat in the areas the first game excelled in, but it's still a lot of fun and intriguing to play. It is an older game, so don't expect the most advanced graphics to date, but it's acceptable for the most part and good for anyone looking for a retro PC game. The gameplay is solid and I personally found it better than the first, but the story falls flat from the original. You'll still find yourself interested to see what happens, but it's not as compelling as the amazing first game. There's a lot of ways to play, so you can play the game with stealth and easily switch from being in the shadows to go guns blazing. Anyone who has played Deus Ex and Deus Ex: HR who finds themself wanting more Deus Ex, you should pick this up.
