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

    I can recommend that you pick up The Missing Link if you really, really want to spend more time with Adam Jensen, but know that it's not a particularly good DLC add-on - especially for fifteen bucks.

    This is certainly one instance where length of included content doesn't justify the price tag.

    Those that have finished Human Revolution will simply be grateful for more Deus Ex, but taken out of the context of the main game, with its hub worlds, huge cast of characters and grandiose conspiracy, it doesn't offer enough to be considered an essential add-on.

    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 Full Review »

    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.
