A great game on it's own meritsBaumshlager | Dec. 2, 2013 | See all Baumshlager's reviews »
If this was not a prequel to the original Deus Ex, it would still be an epic game. Although it is set in the "past", the technology looks more advanced,and that,with the boss levels that seem out of place, would be the only downside. You can again pick your own playstyle: be stealthy, go on a murderous rampage, or something in-between. I especially liked the pheromone analysis part where you have to talk the NPCs into doing your biding by monitoring their behavior. The story wasn't as good as the original, but it still gives you an option to choose the ending you prefer, which is great, and one mission includes the iconic Tracer Tong as a young man. Immersive sci-fi setting and a gret combination of FPS,RPG and a stealth game.Get this game, you won't be disappointed.
Wipe away that Invisible War bad taste in your mouthduffman03 | Nov. 19, 2013 | See all duffman03's reviews »
Invisible War, what Invisible War? This is the Deus Ex we all wanted. Stealth mechanics are great, and having the option to do a full blown psychopathic killer or a silent invisible ninja throughout most of the game (excluding boss battles) is really great. In all reality though, most of the time silent ninja turns into psychopathic killer as soon as you get detected. So you either have to be really careful and stealthy, or just enjoy it and murder everyone. Great looking game, awesome story, and the boss battles are bearable at best. Don't let them turn you off of this game though, play it now!
I asked for this...derekthedj | Sept. 28, 2013 | See all derekthedj's reviews »
I rarely preorder games but this was a day-one purchase. You learn quickly that this isn't the type of game where you can take care of business by going in with the guns blazing. Instead it forces you to think your way through each level and each objective can be completed in a number of ways. You gain skills as you progress through the game and each has their strength and weaknesses.
Minus a little bit due to the boss fights that seem, well, out of place compared to the rest of the game. If it weren't for the boss fights, it would be possible to complete the game without killing anyone.
For those deciding between the regular and augmented edition, this version comes with a nice looking .pdf of the fantastic concept art that inspired the design along with a making-of video that filmed their progress through each stage of the development of this game by Eidos Montreal. Finally, it includes the wonderful game soundtrack by Michael McCann.
This game taught me to enjoy stealth games. I recommend it.
Worthy PrequelFlamingDbag | Aug. 18, 2013 | See all FlamingDbag's reviews »
Considering I already own this on PS3 the fact I've bought it TWICE should indicate if I like it or not. (HINT: I probably do.) And yes it does largely feel like a modern version of the original. I actually prefer the gameplay of HR over the original, but not the story even though HR's is still interesting and incredibly immersive. Regardless this is worth playing anyway, even if you've played any Deus Ex game or not. In fact this is a prequel, so starting with this game is not going to spoil anything. So again don't even CONSIDER buying that TF2 hat until you buy this.
Wow! I never expected this to be so goodmutsuriini | July 7, 2013 | See all mutsuriini's reviews »
After playing the original game so may years ago, and subsequently being a bit confused by "invisible war" I really didn't know what to expect from this new entry to the series. After all there have been so many other games over the years where they've come back a few years later and completely sucked/ messed up everything that was good about the original. But man alive these guys just about nailed it for this game!
I say just about because yes, it's a bit annoying that there are these unavoidable boss fights that pop up but the rest of the time, the stealth gameplay and RPG elements are perfect. Every problem has a few solutions and every level has multiple paths. You can choose to be honourable and not kill anyone which in turn makes different people react differently to you. Even just conversations can make a difference to what else happens. The storyline is engaging and honestly wouldn't be out of place in a hollywood movie. So if you like stealth gameplay and a bit of intelligence in your shooters, this is a no-brainer! And if you wait to pick it up as a combo pack you can also get the first 2 entries at the same time.
