The only problems with this game are the frame rate issues, the need for more content and freedom and the need for some side quests and missions along with places of exploration.
This title is worth playing for any gamer who was a fan of the original and for any fan of this genre. A very great title for anyone to try!
Great game, but not free-walking like Morrowind

About 8-10 hours during the time I was playing. Besides the lows points in the game that the high points are greater gameplay, graphics and voicing then the last Deus Ex. And towards the game the story gets better about who you can trust, your firends, faction, or anybody. You can choose who you want to work with towards the later hours of the game.So I think you should rent this game for the great story and fun areas.You birbe, kill, hack, or sneak to the next area to uncover about the conspiracy and your allegiance.
The most under rated game ever

The game offers a lot of choice, which is a good thing. You can choose between which factions you want to side with, choose which path you want to take, or choose to be a guns blazing type or be stealthy and not kill anyone. That's probably the best thing about Invisible War.
The story isn't nearly as compelling, coherent, or engaging as the original Deus Ex. Inivisble War takes place after one of the possible endings from Deus Ex. People are out to kill you for some reason, but it doesn't really get explained, and different factions are trying to recruit you to kill other factions. The story is just confusing and not very clear on what's going on.
My main problem was the overall gameplay. Invisible War takes a giant step back to the days of Wolfenstein 3D where all the guns used one kind of ammo. Some guns use more ammo than others, so when you run out of ammo, you're screwed.
Skill points have been eliminated, which allowed you to increase different skills like computer, water breathing, healing etc.
The character animations are rigid and the environments are very cramped. The games graphics are very bland in color and the overall game world itself just looks and feels incomplete.
Deus Ex is a must play. Invisible War is not.
I like the first one but this wasn't as good.

Great, Entertaining Game, though a Little Preachy

The game itself is well done, a great plot and just the right level of challenge. The only problem, for new players, is that you really need to save the game constantly, as decisions you make during the game (and the occasional moment of indiscretion,) can result in catastrophic outcomes -- you won't be able to clear some of the lesser important missions if you kill off people you need for completing them -- and often the urge to kill off folks, even accidentally, is hard to avoid without a clear understanding of what is going on.
-- Spoiler Alert --
The game itself is pretty preachy, from a rather conservative ideology and end-of-the-world play, though it is important to note that just about every option ends poorly for humans (going with the Illuminati ends with tyranny, as does going with the Knights, but of course going with Paul and JC ends with a tyranny of a different sort, and killing them all off results in the quiet death of humanity.)
Overall, quite a fun game to tackle on a weekend, if you have nothing better to do (otherwise, you aren't playing games anyway.)
Fun, But Not Interesting
