    Before KOTOR, there was Deus Ex.

    Deus Ex: Invisible War is made by Ion Storm and published by Eidos. It's the sequel to the critically acclaimed Deus Ex: The Conspiracy. Invisible War, like the original game, is a first-person RPG/FPS. As you start a n... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Deus Ex: Invisible War

  • Review Score:7.2

    "Invisible War" isn't bad, but it's disappointing because it could have been so much better.

    I have seen the description “Deus Ex Lite” for this game, and for the most part, it’s a very accurate. This game has merits that make it worth playing, but it’s still vastly inferior to the first game, which I gave a 9.... Read Full Review

    I'm downhearted..... The original Deus Ex had good graphics & a flowing game. This game appears cheaply made, but the $50 price is steep. I expected at least as much as the original, but have been duped into paying ... Read Full Review

    Deus Ex: Invisible War has gotten a lot of bad publicity from fans of the original Deus Ex. While I would have to agree that IW does not live up to the original in many ways, it is a worthy sequel (I should note that I p... Read Full Review

    A really neat science fiction game that still falls short of the original.

    Warren Spector's Deus Ex: Invisible War, is quite simply inferior to the original game. While many aspects of it show a clear effort to refine certain dynamics and elements of gameplay, many of the old game's unique char... Read Full Review

    This game is okay. Its not horrible, but its not great either. I was a big fan of the original Deus Ex and this game has similarities but on the whole it seemed somewhat shallower to me. The graphics are not anything to ... Read Full Review

    I just got this game and I will have to say that as a former QA tester i am discusted! At first glance I could easily tell this was a port to PC from XBOX! The UI is terrible and the bugs in this game are unbelievable!... Read Full Review

    I have to admit to loving Deus Ex 1. I have been eagerly awaiting the release of IW's and was very pleased when the game arrived. What is NOT pleasing is to find that the game will NOT run on my sys. I have the follow... Read Full Review

    Boy oh boy, do I love this game! First off, I should point out the lack of maturity some of the other reviewers are displaying (namely, the ones giving the game a 1.0), simply because it did not live up to their expec... Read Full Review

    Any sequel suffers the challenge of being compared to its predecessor. That's simply a fact of life that developers must deal with. A wise rule of thumb they would do well to adopt would be to never offer fewer options... Read Full Review
