Deus Ex: Invisible War
4 Star Review  GameZone - Dec 17, 2003

Only a few years ago, many publications were declaring Ion Storm's masterpiece, Deus Ex, the game of the year. So many journalists were enthralled by this game that an actual "Game of the Year" edition of the game hit store shelves after a short time. Yes, the game did have its problems, but with so many stunning (especially at the time) innovations, you can imagine the amount of hype that's built up over the years in anticipation for the sequel. The original game was great, with its blend of first-person-shooter and RPG elements. The game was easily as much of a decision-making game as it was a gun-shooting game.

Deus Ex: Invisible War (xbox)
4.5 Star Review  GameSpy - Nov 27, 2003

I've learned that it's seldom a good idea to harbor inflated expectations, because even the best games can fail to live up to them. But I'm only human, so once in a while a game can still get under my skin and crank up that hype meter to 11. Such has been the case with Deus Ex: Invisible War, and it's not hard to see why. Invisible War is the sequel to Deus Ex, a PC action-RPG sci-fi thriller of uncommon scope which was our game of the year in 2000. More importantly, Invisible War's been developed by Ion Storm Austin, which, helmed by Warren Spector and Harvey Smith, is surely one of the most talented and exciting studios in the business. Given players' colossal expectations, can Invisible War possibly live up to its promise and pedigree? It's a close thing.

Deus Ex: Invisible War (xbox)
4.5 Star Review  IGN.com - Dec 1, 2003

Thanksgiving is a time to gather together with your loved ones and celebrate the priorities that you pretty much ignore the rest of the year. It's also the time for me to play a hell of a lot of Deus Ex: Invisible War. In between my seven full meals of turkey I managed to ignore my family just long enough to finish Deus Ex: Invisible War for both the PC and Xbox. Having been a fan of the PC original, I was really looking forward to this next installment. And since I can count the number of good RPGs for the Xbox on my thumbs, I was definitely looking forward to seeing how the sequel fit the console.

Deus Ex newbie
3 Star Review   By member vherub - Jul 28, 2005   

Strengths: Anything even hinting at an rpg is good for the xbox

Weakness: Has not aged well

It takes a little time to get into Deus Ex. I found myself initially put off because, compared to newer titles, Deus Ex looks a bit haggard. And while the story eventually becomes engaging, it does not immediately grasp one's attention. Once you get used to the combat-lite experience, the world can pull you in. I had not played the previous Deus Ex title, which may account for the initial slowness and distance from the story and characters. But I did not feel lost from the world itself. I did not have a great deal of interest in this game when it released, and it was only once the price fell below $10 that I picked it up. Had I played it right when it came out, I might have enjoyed it more, but had I paid more for it, I also would have expected more and ended up enjoying it less.

5 Star Review   By member Venent - Jun 10, 2005   

Strengths: Great mixture of role-playing and first person shooting. Excellent story that allows the player to play any type of role he wishes. Excellent character customization.

Weakness: One type of ammunition. Convoluted story that doesn't allow you to fully understand your part in the plot until later in the game.

This is a sequel that I have been waiting for since I completed the first Deus Ex game. This game does not disappoint. It has the same role-playing/first person style, with great environments, and an excellent (yet convoluted) story. The pacing of the game is a little slow for a console, and relies heavily on dialogue with moments of action. Overall, this is a fantastic game.

4 Star Review   By member road3283 - May 24, 2005   

Strengths: Free form gameplay. Compelling story.

Weakness: Long loading times.

Deus Ex's strongest point is that it allows you to play it however you wish. You can use a variety of options to accomplish your objectives. But more than that you can choose what objectives you want to complete, and what factions you want to aid. Your choices effect the outcome of the story. In a sense you drive the direction of the branching story. Add to this some rpg like elements that let you customize your skills and abilities and you have a game that immerses you into its world. The gameplay is very varied and incorporates action, stealth, and puzzles. The excellent physics, lighting, graphics all add to the realistic environments. Overall, a great game. Even better it can be found at cheap prices that are well worth its value.

2 Star Review   By member Alive741 - Apr 26, 2005   

Strengths: Great Story Line

Weakness: HORRIBLE HORRIBLE, Can't say it enough HORRIBLE combat!

Story line in Deus Ex is AWESOME. Deus Ex for the PC was one of the best games ever, this game has great graphics and story line. But I can not begin to describe how GOD AWFUL the combat is. If you're buying this for the gameplay and combat--don't. The same ammo is used for every gun, there is no recoil, and headshots don't matter. Ridiculous.

3 Star Review   By member mcgavin27 - Mar 18, 2005   

Strengths: futuristic setting, good graphics

Weakness: load times

This game is the sequel to the amazing Deus Ex for pc and ps2. This game has the havok's physics engine, and fantastic lighting. This was the greatest looking xbox games of its time in my opinion. This game has guns but you don't have to use any of them. This game is very open ended. Take it for what it is worth.

5 Star Review   By member shrike424242 - Sep 15, 2004   

Strengths: Open-ended gameplay, great graphics, immersive storyline, story changes to reflect your actions as you work through the game

Weakness: Long load times, graphics can chug a bit at times, a little "dumbed-down" for fans of the original Deus Ex

Deus Ex: Invisble War is set 20 years after the first Deus Ex game and tells a very immersive and interesting story. Part RPG, part first person shooter, there are numerous ways to work through a problem, and the game adapts to the choices made. There's plenty of action and plenty of puzzles to work through, and the environment does make it feel more like living through it, rather than playing it. One issue that the graphics can cause the XBox to slow down a bit, which can be a little irritating, as can be the long load times between areas. For the die-hards of the original Deus Ex, the game has been simplified a bit, probably trying to appeal to a wider crowd on the XBox, though for any RPG fan, they should be able to get into it without question. Any XBox RPG fan should pick up this game, with the branching, immersive story, it should keep people interested for quite some time. For fans of the original Deus Ex, it should be picked up, as the price has dropped down to be worth a bargain purchase.
