Weak

Doesn't hold a candle to the original

Invisible War is the sequel to the award winning Deus Ex, which was released for PC, Mac, and PS2. To say the least, Invisible War had a lot of great ideas, but everything was poorly executed.

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.

This game was okay but somewhat boring for me. The biomod was bad at times. And some of the features just weren't that good. Good for a rent but not to buy.

I just got this game in the mail and it will not play on my
360.Looked online for more info it is not BC, some one at Game Fly needs to let users know that it only works on Xbox
and not the 360.
