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: 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: i was not a big shooter fan but loved rpg's so i gave this a go.i wasn't disappointed! the game is in my opinion second only to half life 2 in the shooter stakes. the rpg elements give it a depth that other shooters don't have. i've never played deus ex on pc so i can't compare it but deus ex 2 is one of those rare games that i will keep coming back to.
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 there have been a few complaining reviewers, whining about how the PC version is better, and are looking at it completely the wrong way, they might as well complain that you don't use a mouse and keyboard.
Excerpt: superb all rounder of a game. the way it mixes high tech labs and slums so well in one game is fantastic. the weapons are cool and your superhuman powers can either help you in stratigitic way or use strength to beat you enemys face in.
Summary: The original Deus Ex game deserved to be called a classic. You really felt you were in a living breathing world with secret organisations all operating around you. Invisible War (IW) lives up to the original's great gameplay but there are some significant differences. There's not quite the same level of detail as in the original. There are no newspapers lying around to read and fewer amounts of junk to play with - the basketball is still there though.
Summary: My first contact with deus ex was on the PS2 which I didn't enjoy and I gave up half way. Graphically it looked awful, and out of date. All you ever seemed to do is pick stuff up and talk to people, and with my attention span lost the plot very quickly. That was my first attempt at a RPG, so when invisible war came out I decided to rent it at first. What a mistake ... The game is great !!!
Summary: I heard a lot of negative reviews about this but bought it anyway... thankGod I did! The developers wanted to give you a game that every time youplay it you could have a different gaming experience. The main plot linemissions you could complete in a few days if you really wanted but thereare that many sub plots and so many different ways of tackling things thatyou could make it last a couple of months.
