My friends. Deus Ex 2: Invisible War is widely regarded by many as one of the most disappointing conolized sequels ever (IGN gave it a 9). It's been years now and in retrospect, is it really that bad?
IMO, games like System Shock 2 to Bioshock: Infinite are far worse. They strip the game down to a basic shooter with a level design of "go forward". Deus Ex 2 while stripped, at least had a sandbox like environment with different options and diffrent ways to play.
From Syndicate to EA's Syndicate, Morrowind to Skyrim, Crysis to Crysis 2, System Shock 2 to Bioshock: Infinite does Deus Ex 2 really deserve the terrible rep it gets? Compared to most "modernized" titles it's still much closer to it's source materiel.
How feels you?
