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.
Sadly not a improval, but a total different gameMalcolmR | Aug. 13, 2013 | See all MalcolmR's reviews »
The first Deus Ex blew my mind on many occasions. It was a huge piece of game-slash-sandbox, set in a distopian scifi-world. For a game this old, this was the PC game that influenced me the most.
Sadly, the second game in the series was not so great at all. Instead of a continuation of all the remarkable features the first installment offered, Deus Ex - Invisible War was just something with the same name, but totally different gameplay. I am not saying this is a bad game, but the expectations were to high. In my opinion: If they didn't call it "Deus Ex", the game would have been better received by the audience - and by me.
Different but Great!Thebestfootball | Aug. 3, 2013 | See all Thebestfootball's reviews »
Although not completely the perfect sequel that we hardcore fans were hoping for, this is still one of the most enjoyable titles that you will ever play. Any game bearing the Deus Ex name is going to be indisputably brilliant, and Invisible War is yet another masterpiece from gaming iconic Warren Spector. In my opinion the original Deus Ex is arguable the greatest game ever made, and those who do not play this sequel are missing out on what is the continuation of a truly outstanding franchise.
A DisappointmentDimber | July 27, 2013 | See all Dimber's reviews »
Just finished Deus Ex!
Wow, that was incredible!
Sadly, the sequel will be a disappointment. On its own, it isn't half bad and plays kinda well, but compared to the original, it's not that good. If you haven't played any other Deus Ex game, then you'd be entertained by this one.
