Summary: Honestly this is one of the best games that I have ever played. Its kind of like fable, in that throughout the game you make choices, only it's a first-person shooter. The game is actually really challenging when you put it on the hardest setting. You play as Alex Denton, a human with biomods. Basically biomods can make you stronger, faster, self-healing, invisible, you name it.
Conclusion: Ever heard of an RPG that takes place in first person? A game where the world is open to your ways but instead of you running around in third person like the average RPG, you run around in first. Interesting premise, huh? Well thats exactly what Deus Ex is, an RPG that takes place in the first person. You run, gun, and level up. You play as Alex D, a man/women with great military training and genetical enhancements to bout.
Conclusion: The game iself is great and if that was all there was to then everyone would be set for a long time. The whole game is great, although that whole game will take anywhere from 10-15 hours max. That is the biggest down fall of the game and that sucks. Apparently the frame rate on some peoples games is good but on mine the frame rate stutters alot and the grapfics can get glichy (other than that the graphics rock).
Conclusion: This game is nothing short of amazing. <b>The First Person RPG expirience<b> To tell you the truth, I just couldn't believe that a First Person View in an RPG would work, now I can't believe I thought that. Playing from the first person view is very immersive, and it kicks butt in this type of game. Why? Because you never buy new armor or any thing, so seeing what you charicter isn't that important.
Excerpt: "...to the original, the first Deus Ex. Why? because Invisible War on the PC is not only difficult to run by flawed by bugs and the like. That and compared to the original, this is rather 'dumbed down' losing the skill system. However, it would be best to ignore these little irrelevancies because this game is gold compared to others on the Xbox, and possibly the best for the console in 2004. So if you're one of those who stay in all day staring at your ...
Summary: First of all i'd like to start by saying that if your generally a PC gamer then you'd be better off sticking to the original, the first Deus Ex. Why? because Invisible War on the PC is not only difficult to run by flawed by bugs and the like. That and compared to the original, this is rather 'dumbed down' losing the skill system.
Summary: Generally speaking, I find videogame storylines dull and pointless. The Deus Ex series, however, is a definite exception. The plot is intricate and fascinating, unfolding like a conspiracy thriller, with you as the pivotal character. It is a game about taking sides and choosing enemies, wiht nothing less than the fate of humanity at stake. As I write this, the old Xbox is an obsolete machine.
