Don't play the first one unless you mod the ever living **** out of it.
It need visual, UI and inventory mods to become playable.


This, the game is very good but hasn't aged very well. Play the first one, skip the second one, and then play HR.

No mods will fix the second? And I got the fall for $3 on amazon so.. Should I play that before HR? I hear its a prequel that's why

Anyway installing HDTP (it gives better models right?), New Vision texture pack downloading right now, but not sure if I should install the gameplay mechanic mod?

No. Install NV, HDTP (disable the Majestic 12 trooper skin, it crashes), Kentie's DX10 renderer and launcher. All you need.

If you are going to play them all, go The Fall, Invisible War, Human Revolution then the original.

That way each one will be better than the one before it and you'll never get bummed about how bad one was compared to the original

Uh, it does? There's the visual enhancements, and then there's the shifter mod. I dunno what mods you speak of that improves the UI and inventory. It's perfectly fine and useable. I actually think the UI/menus are some of the coolest in a game ever.

play one first then invisible war then HR. HR is a prequel but does have some easter eggs and other things that wont seem quite as cool if you haven't played the original (ie end of credits scene). Also invisible war gets a lot of hate as it is not as good as the original but it is still pretty fun.

Are you a peasant? Than play HR, It's shiny and dumbed down, so that's probably your thing. Do you actually like good games? The first one

Play the first one and pretend the others don't exist. That's what I do.

In the order that they were released. Always.

And don't skip any because none of them are bad. (No, Invisible War isn't bad you implacable fanboy zombie.)

(Maybe skip The Fall, at least until it gets a patch into a decent port.)


I've tried to play it but been unable to get it to work on modern systems. I've tried all the fixes listed on the wiki etc., and I can watch the intro custcenes etc., just get a black screen when the game starts.
