    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. 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.

    The Missing Link is the first piece of DLC for Deus Ex: Human Revolution and it puts you back to basics as far as style of play and augments are concerned. 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

    The initial price of 1200MS points seemed bit steep, but its an expansion pack.

    This DLC will last you around 4-8 hours, depending on how you play.

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

    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. Dont get me wrong it isnt bad its just way over-priced for its length. I recommend avoiding for now.

    A substantial extension that deepens the game's conspiracies. Recommended. [Christmas 2011, p.93]

    The Missing Link is an extremely enjoyable addition tot he main game. The problem is that true fans will enjoy the ride but ultimately find their selves wishing it was more in hindsight. It's a lengthy and entertaining addition but once it is over and done with, you will find yourself craving a true advancement on the Human Revolution experience.

    The Missing Link is a good addition to Deus Ex: Human Revolution but has some lesser moments as well. The first half of the game is simply great, after that you'll be running from A to B in places you've visited before, making it kinda dull. Nevertheless The Missing Link can be a lot of fun because it combines all the aspects that made the Deus Ex franchise so great.
