* {{Flanderization}}: The Knights Templar of this game share the same name as those from ''VideoGame/DeusEx''', but they are an extreme exaggeration of one detail about the previous Knights. Where the Templars of ''VideoGame/DeusEx'' were religious bankers [[spoiler: related to the Illuminati]], the Templars of ''Invisible War'' are [[TheFundamentalist extremist]] [[LuddWasRight Luddite]] {{Church Militant}}s. It's not fully clear if the Knights Templar of ''Invisible War'' are a continuation of the few surviving members from ''Deus Ex'', or if they organized independently.

* BigBadEnsemble: [[spoiler:Saman, Nicolette [=DuClare=] and Chad Dumier, or JC and Paul Denton]]. It all depends on who you side with, but at the end of the game [[spoiler: you can have multiple factions and their leaders coming after you]]. However, [[spoiler:Saman]] is truly THE BigBad, since [[spoiler:his]] organization has been pretty much pulling the strings from within all the others throughout the game. You can still side with [[spoiler:him]] of course, but this would be the equivalent to siding with Bob Page from the orginal.

* {{Nerf}}ed: Nano-augmentations are significantly less god-like in ''Invisible War'' compared to the original game. In ''VideoGame/DeusEx'' once you max out your augmentations, you're essentially a PhysicalGod as long as you have bio-energy (and the augmentations really don't drain bio-energy particularly fast). In ''Invisible War'' the enhancements provided by augmentations are noticably less powerful, and they drain energy much more quickly.

** The scientist at Mako Ballistics that shows you the Mag Rail closes the door behind him, if you take the weapon. However, you can block it with a crate and kill him afterwards. He has the highest HP in the game (even JC Denton looks like a weakling in comparsion). Probably so you don't use your shiny new "shoots-through-walls" weapon on him. If you hack away for [[UpToEleven a few minutes]] with a sword, he eventually dies.
** It's possible to get the code from the security chief in the {{arcology}} for the nanobots and after activating the nanobots, you can kill him for the Harvester's reward, as presumably due to a glitch(at least on the PC version, not sure if it happens on the console as well) he dosen't dissapear from his office like he's normally supposed to.

** The two main sects are, interestingly, aligned to these areas too. The WTO headquarters are ''always'' in the upper class areas, and the Order churches are ''always'' in the lower-class neighbourhoods. The various locations of the two coffee chains run along similar lines.

''Invisible War'' takes place in 2072, twenty years after the original, in a world being rebuilt after the destruction of global infrastructure at the hands of the first game's protagonist, JC Denton. The World Trade Organization somehow forms a [[OneWorldOrder global government]], creating modern city-states, known as enclaves, in which the majority of the game takes place. All the world's major religions are united into a monolithic fanatical cult strongly opposing the [=WTO=]'s policies. Following a [[GreyGoo terrorist attack]] by an [[TheKnightsTemplar unknown group]] which destroys most of Chicago, the player assumes the role of Alex D (Who can, in a first for the series, be female) , a trainee at the prestigious Tarsus Academy whose support as a mercenary is sought by several factions during the course of the game.

**** Factoring in that JC Denton can control nanomachines to do basically whatever he wants, it's very likely that he can make his own clothing whenever he wants. Adding that he's also trying to elevate the entire human race to a point where everyone is connected, it's unlikely he's concerned with what color shirt to wear. Same thing with Paul.
