A guy at work just got me Deus Ex:Invisible War -

in a word : SUUUUUUUUHHHHHHHWWWWEEEEEEEETTTTTT!!!!!!

Spent most of the weekend playing it. Much like Splinter Cell in that it's not a FPS. It's more of an RPG with some shooting and a bit of stealth action, too.

Great Game - have a great holiday all!

PCZone gave it a score of 86 (or was it 84?)

they said it wasnt up to scratch like the first one and was more of a shooter than an RPG because the skills and augmentations were greatly reduced and the interface was too simple

but apart from that they said it was a darn good shooter!

Agreed, S7N. Read the review myself and I'm still debating whether it'll be worth buying it or not. The hit locations are practically non existent also, and that's a really bad mistake.

Most people have complained about it being dumbed down since they ported from XBOX to PC, rather than the other way around. A pity, would have been far better going PC to XBOX, for some reason games developers think that nearly everyone who owns a console is a moronic child who can't think past a bog standard shooter. Makes PC ports of console games almost worthless in most cases.

Grand Theft Auto Vice City is a prime example of how it SHOULD be done. Deus Ex 2, sadly, is certainly not. I've only played the demo, and was quite disappointed. The original game surpasses the sequel in terms of interface and skills.

Deus Ex 2 is just too simplified.

I hear Deus Ex: Invisible War is pretty good, but supposedly it has some major performance problems for the PC. Who knows, Eidos Interactive told me that my free copy is in the mail, so I'll have a chance to play it soon. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

lol, yep I get the goods. It's easier than I thought too. I just send out e-mails or make phone calls to the Publishing companies such as Eidos Interactive, Ubisoft, Electronic Arts, Gathering, Vivendi Universal, etc. and than they send me a copy of the game I requested so I can than write my review.
