The story is really amazing but the graphic compartment is obsolete, the gameplay not so good and the role play section is disappeared!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...
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.
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.
