    The Missing Link is one of the best DLC releases ever. Even though it's a bit pricey, it's very much worth the price. There's a lot of stuff to do, interesting combat and best of all, the new in-house made boss fight is infinitely more fun than the useless bosses at the original Human Revolution. [Nov 2011]

    A huge and exciting new mission riddled with creative possibilities. And it ends on the boss fight the main game deserved.

    The Missing Link is one of those add-ons, that shine a brighter light on all that DLC business. Although the amount of money that Square Enix wants for it seems big, the price-quality ratio is very good - DLCs with that much content are a rarity. The Missing Link is also a great opportunity to see how great the new Deus Ex still is. I became Adam Jensen again after a few weeks and it was such a pleasant experience, that I had to stick around till the end credits. Deus Ex is fantastic and this DLC is great.

    While The Missing Link does present an intriguing cast of mysterious characters, none of them feel particularly imperative or tug at your heartstrings.

    Copy-pasted decks and bays, as well as backtrack-heavy mission objectives will test your patience. This DLC adds nothing to the main storyline; it simply demonstrates the atrocities committed by Belltower in the name of surplus profit.

    Perhaps The Missing Link's biggest offense is that it feels like the safe, easy way to go with Human Revolution's DLC.

    A disjointed approach to play harms The Missing Link's value to Human Revolution's main story arc.

It plays just a bit harder than the game itself, which is probably appropriate. Lots of little easter eggs, and a visit or two from characters you might remember from other Deus Ex venues. No new weapons or augs, but some interesting dilemmas and achievements, including one where you use no weapons or augs! Some improvements to the engine to make the ocean and weather more "whoa!" Satisfying experience, rated at 5 hours, took me 8. Expand

    For $15, you get an extra 4-6 hours of gameplay.

    Might sound like a bit much, but compared to $15 for a few new multiplayer maps in games like Call of Duty, this DLC is a diamond amongst a sea of ****

    If you enjoyed the core game, then give this a shot. Improvements to lighting, more of the excellent soundtracks, and more Deus Ex. Challenging, atmospheric, and high replay value. It's the Deus Ex experience we all know and love dearly.

    The Missing Link is pretty good, with a decent location and an interesting, semi self-contained story, but the question you need to askThe Missing Link is pretty good, with a decent location and an interesting, semi self-contained story, but the question you need to ask yourself is whether or not it's worth $15 bucks. In short, not really. It's still good, but for $15 we're approaching full-fledged expansion territory. The Missing Link doesn't have any new abilities or items however, and to be honest it's pretty short. I completed it in 4 hours, but depending on how you clear certain areas gameplay may be lengthened (you backtrack a bit, so if guards are knocked out/dead you can just run through). Again, I enjoyed it, but I'd recommend waiting until the price drops or goes on sale. Expand

There aren't any new weapons or gadgets in this, but it's an entirely new location. It took me about 5 hours to finish my first playthrough; there is a bit of replayability if you want to go though again and try for a different style of play or make different choices. The story doesn't exactly tie in very well, but it's still relatively interesting. Oh, the final boss battle is far better than the ones in the original game. Overall, it's a good DLC, if you can get it for cheap. Expand

It gives a nice treat to Deus Ex fans by expanding the story a bit, and it picks a good part in the original game where the expansion would fit in. If you're hardcore Deus Ex fan, this is worth the money, otherwise it probably wouldn't be. Still, you get some new settings, characters and plot points that hold up well. Expand

That's more expensive than the original game if you go by playtime. All for a part of the story that appears in the middle of the original campaign, so should have probably been included in the game in the first place. It's not even an addition to the story, it's a part they left out so they could sell it to you later, FOR MORE THAN THE ORIGINAL! Pass on Eidos, forever. Expand
