    Polished enough to be released as a stand-alone package, The Missing Link hits all the right notes and delivers more of everything that made Human Revolution such a standout title.

    Best of all, tantalizing hints of what's to come will leave you anxious for the next chapter in your gruff super-soldier's saga.

    Adam snuck aboard a freighter in the main story of Human Revolution and he had quite a journey aboard that freighter while separated from his team!

    The Missing Link is an elegant, self-contained campaign-in-miniature that packs almost as many options and exactly as much atmosphere into a third of the space.

    If you've always been curious about what it'd be like to play a Jensen that's tricked out in a completely different way, The Missing Link offers a blank slate with which to do so. Diehard transhumans will want to unravel The Missing Link without hesitation in any event, but at $15, those less committed to Jensen's cause could stand to wait until the price of the upgrade isn't so steep.

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution - The Missing Link is a disjointed but ultimately enjoyable return to Adam Jensen's adventure.

    The opportunity to revisit Human Revolution is a welcome one, but this is a competent expansion rather than an unmissable one.

The Missing Link takes its name from from the boat journey you take from Hengsha to Singapore, In the main game you get plant explosives in the office and then you find yourself at the Singapore depot, The Missing Link fills in that gap and starts with Jensen waking up from stasis finding himself sat strapped in a chair with EMPs to render all of his augmentations useless, Your captors are those pesky Bell Tower agents, You Expand

    Its not a "must have" download but if you liked Dx3, you should consider picking it up just for the story.

    If you liked the main game then this is just an extension. There is no new gameplay elements and only 2 areas and a handful of quests. AIf you liked the main game then this is just an extension. There is no new gameplay elements and only 2 areas and a handful of quests. A little too pricey for what you get.

    The devs still keep creating achievements that require that you play through sections of the game more than once to get because they are mutually exclusive. They also once again add an achievement that basically makes you play the game without taking advantage of any of the features that actually make it what it is. It would be equivalent to playing an RPG where you couldn't level up. Certainly challenging but it really pulls away from what makes the game more fun. The final boss battle was just a little too heavy on combat (especially for this particular achievement) which seems to go against what the devs were wanting.

    Overall it isn't a bad DLC compared to most out there but the devs really need to stop restricting you with their achievements. The price is also a little high for what you get.

    It defiantly isnt worth the 15$ price tag. Its more like maybe 5$. Its content is somewhat short and overall its not worth its current price.It defiantly isnt worth the 15$ price tag.
