It was a HUUUUUUUGE disappointment for a Deus Ex sequel. I remember just beating Deus Ex, being amazed by the game, then I was looking around the Steam store, and saw Invisible War. My first thought was "Holy s***, I am buying this." So I did, installed it, and I was shocked at how BAD it was. Maybe it's because I had such high expectations for it because of "Deus Ex" in the title, and it would be hard to live up to it, but... it's just.... ugh, I don't even want to think about it. Everything is different, and not for the better. Maybe I'm just being too hard on it. It's honestly a okay game (I only rated it below average for being so disappointed), and it is worth the $10 investment, but it's just no Deus Ex.
This game asks you if you're sure every time you want to leave an area...
I can play original DX all day every day, but in case of IW I can't bring myself to play it for even 7h (total time to beat it, wtf?), because of the awful graphics and gameplay.
It's worth playing, but it's extremely glitchy and incredibly flawed. Probably the most disappointing game of all time right next to Fallout 4.
The story is really amazing but the graphic compartment is obsolete, the gameplay not so good and the role play section is disappeared! Can't stand alex face, alexandra's is so better! Mapping is claustrophobic and too simple and some design elements like the computer consoles are horrible! This game could have been better...
I absolutely loved the original Deus Ex (and still occasionally replay it), and I also really liked Human Revolution (despite the godawful boss battles). For a long time, I heard people hating on IW, and I finally decided to try it out myself and see if it was really as terrible as everyone said it was. And it turns out that...yes. It TOTALLY is. Most of the game has been very simplified, obviously to appeal to console gamers (for example, the interface, because for some reason the developers thought that Xbox gamers were a bunch of low IQ retards that couldn't understand how DX1's HUD worked). Stealth is now pretty hard and not even really encouraged anymore, leaning keys are gone and sneaking behind people is harder (and that's not to mention the stun gun is now useless...), and while you could fix that problem with some biomods, shooting your way around the incredibly tiny levels is usually easier. There are no skills anymore, all weapons use the same kind of ammunition and they don't need to be reloaded...location damage has also been removed. As in the original Deus Ex, there is still some freedom of choice, but it's usually very limited because of how tiny the levels are. Even if you are a Deus Ex fan, stay away from this. Just pretend it never existed...
A good game, but it is definitely a bad Deus Ex (nevertheless it is a good game :) )
its good but not perfect like deus ex 1 and human revolution
It had it's flaws, sure, but seeing the scathing reviews it attained, I thought people were just overreacting.
But looking back at the first game, I realized it would have been way too hard trying to make it better then the last Deus Ex. The first game had such a following and was incredible to boot, it must have been a daunting task making the game on the heels of another that some fans have labeled perfect.
You can't build upon perfect easily, and sometimes you slip up, more often then others at times.
It's not bad, really, but it has flaws that many people have already pointed out. But it could have been done better.
Its a good game...if you can look past the errors and the bad stuff in the game.
