Did you play Deus Ex: Human Revolutions and enjoy it? Did you want an uglier, awkwardly-controlled, short version of it that ends on an ineffective cliffhanger? Then your prayers have been answered!
On the other hand, if you want a game that's good, especially something that feels like the earlier Deus Ex games, steer clear.

If you're just itching for more Deus Ex, you can't go wrong with The Fall. Don't expect much though, as it is a mobile port and is being sold as such, the base game being ten bucks.
Just don't expect the full Human Revolution experience and you'll find some enjoyment in the game. It still feels very Deus Ex despite being light on features.

Because even then they would be generous. I love Deus Ex, and DX Human Revolution, I was surprised I hadn't seen this announced but I thought "I don't need a review to tell me this is good" and bought it on release,
It is worse than awful. I refuse to waste my time writing any more about it other than to say they couldn't even spell 'fail' correctly in the title. I'd want at least £10 to re-install it. Be warned.

be aware that is only a "first" episode, and actually we don't know if a second one is planned. The gameplay is pretty much the same from Human Revolution, but the campaign is only four hours long.
It's a good way to come back into the Deus Ex universe, so if you liked the other games, try this one too.

If you relinquish any previous emotional ties to the other games in the Deus Ex series and couple this with the knowledge that the particular addition was originally an iOS game then Deus Ex: The Fall can be a very satisfying experience.
Deus Ex: The Fall has a story that begins with a constant source of information being presented to you about the characters and the world they live in. Betrayal, espionage and many common stables of stealth games appear in the futuristic setting that makes the Deus Ex series so great.
With The Fall, this story is coupled with a very simplistic, but rewarding gameplay where you can easily decide to blast through your enemies with a variety of guns or take a more humane approach and merely put your enemies to rest.
The biggest strength of Deus Ex: The Fall is just how quickly one can start playing and enjoying the game, without any bloated or unnecessary fillers along the way.
The game is short and a bit unpolished, but ultimately an enjoyable experience all things considered.
