    Ultimately, Invisible War is a very fine game spread too thin. It's a game that's made the effort to name the cat in the secretary's desk photo but not to make jumping work properly, that bothers to script loving exchanges between insignificant NPCs but pits you against clumsy and stuttering AI. [Feb 2004, p.94]

    Evolution or minimisation? One thing is for sure, if you remain uncertain as to which side of the fence you’re sitting on, you may just be able to allow yourself an immersive and unique period in which to decide.

    The end result is a good-if-you're-into-it, poorly performing, but interesting social experiment that seems more geared toward determining how players will react to certain situations than challenging them in new and exciting ways to accomplish tasks that are fun and engaging.
  4. Invisible War kind of looks like it was meant to be a much, much better game than it is, with a lot of half-finished ideas that aren't taken quite far enough.

    Honnie, décriée et sévèrement vilipendée à sa sortie, la suite du très bon Deus Ex n'a jamais mérité pareil traitement. Je le trouvais aussiHonnie, décriée et sévèrement vilipendée à sa sortie, la suite du très bon Deus Ex n'a jamais mérité pareil traitement. Je le trouvais aussi brillant que le premier et avec le recul, je le trouve même un cran au dessus.

    Le jeu était très beau et très stable sur Xbox, l'interface était bien pensée et l'ambiance cyberpunk toujours aussi agréable. Ce mélange d'infiltration et de JDR est unique (même si le jeu laissait aussi le choix de se la jouer gros bill cela va de soi). Superbe ambiance et grande liberté d'approche.

It is pretty depressing how MetaCritic and other sites continuously allow MORONS like Uter below to infect the compiled user score for this amazing game with their idiotic nonsense and 0 scores.
