Deus Ex 2 takes place approximately 20 years after the events depicted in Deus Ex, in a world only beginning to recover from a secret, conspiratorial war, technology run amok and catastrophic worldwide depression. The winner-take-all geopolitics of mid-21st century Earth have given way to a struggle over more basic concerns: food, water, re-establishing civil law and cleaning up biological and nano-tech fallout. Several religious and political factions see in the chaos the opportunity to shape a worldwide government and they know that the right moves now could determine the shape of human society for decades, even centuries, to come. The player must reveal the secrets of each faction and the identities of the true players in this struggle for world power. In the end, the player discovers that he or she may be the key to all of the factions' plans. But the greatest mystery of all the game's true goal is more personal, much deeper and, for maximum impact, is best revealed during play.
  • RPG character creation and advancement through choice of nano-tech augmentations and inventory gear
  • Support for stealth gameplay, with darkness and sound affecting enemy awareness.
  • Variable gameplay ? multiple solutions to problems and support for varying stylistic approaches
  • Non-lethal, non-violent resolution to conflict, allowing players to make ethical statements through their actions
  • A large variety of interesting gameplay tools and character powers in the form of gear and nano-tech augmentations. Players will be able to see through walls, leap 40 feet into the air, regenerate critical body damage or render themselves radar invisible
  • A dynamic, non-linear story with responsive plot branches and character attitudes.
  • Interactive conversations with numerous secondary characters, featuring meaningful, plot relevant dialogue choices
  • Wide ranging and tactically interesting Artificial Intelligence ? creatures and human units work together as groups ? sometimes employing stealth and cover against the player
  • Real world locations, allowing the player to engage in a globe-hopping adventure, visiting Red Square, Seattle, London and other interesting places
  • Highly interactive environments ? everything in the game world has some interesting (and potentially unforeseen) effect.

Decently plotted and acted but with compromises made to make the game console-friendly that very nearly ruin it. Levels are small with frequent loading, the inventory is annoying, the enhancements can be maxed-out by halfway through the game and worst of all is a system wherby all weapons use the same ammunition supply-one shot with a rocket launcher and your pistol is empty.

 Lacking the magic of Deus Ex, but very good nonetheless!

Deus Ex was a genre defining, superbly designed and absorbing game that absolutely rocked my gaming world when I first played it. The story was far bigger and more open than in any previous first person shooter, the augmentation and skill systems were revolutionary, and the game world was crammed with interesting and useful characters, and huge amounts of information, making it one of the most replayable games ever (I personally played through it at least 6 times, and found new things every time). So Deus Ex: Invisible War was always going to struggle to match its predecessor.

First, the bad points - the AI is poor, and not up to the current high standard, although the AI in Deus Ex was generally woeful (one of it's weakest points), and Invisible War is certainly an improvement. The graphics are quite good, but again they do not hold up favourably against other current titles. The game world doesn't seem quite so rich - there are no newspapers lying around, or emails to hack from computers, and this is a sad loss from the original. The soundtrack isn't as memorable as that in Deus Ex either, and some of the voice acting is a little bland (although there are none of the truly terrible voices that occasionally appeared in the original - Hong Kong). Your character Alex D, isn't as charismatic as JC Denton, and ultimately you just don't care as much about him or her.

However, this is ultimately a very good game, and there are substantial improvements in some areas. The greatest strength of Deus Ex was it's freeform gameplay, and this is just as good, although different, in Invisible War - at times there are literally half a dozen ways to complete even a simple objective, and the only limits seem to be your imagination and the equipment you happen to be carrying- excellent. Some very fundamental changes are evident in the skills and augmentation systems too - biomod canisters can be installed in one of 5 slots, each of which corresponds to an area of the body, and can hold either an official or black market biomod. The abilities they give tend to influence your style of play far more than in Deus Ex, and this is a good thing in my opinion, although some may not agree.

The plot is a little loose at the beginning, but progresses smoothly, and with great realism. There is a real sense of freedom in your actions, and no matter what you do, the game has been designed to react accurately, and characters will often refer back to decisions you made several levels ago - this is impressive and creates a real sense of cause and effect. There are dozens of missions which are not crucial to the story, but carry rewards of equipment, money or information, and these seem a natural part of the game, rather than a tacked on extra.
