Just a good and small DLCMarcoCav | Oct. 2, 2013 | See all MarcoCav's reviews »
The Missing Link is a good, small DLC of the beautiful Deus Ex: Human Revolution. It is good since the gameplay is the same of its mail title, and it is small since it requires only 5 or 6 hours to be completed, even considering a large use of backtracking. It could be better, but considering that it is only a DLC, it could be enough.
Improves on the Main Game's ShortcomingsNucularS | Aug. 4, 2013 | See all NucularS's reviews »
Missing Link is a complete new mission, which takes a good few hours to complete, and which improves on the main game’s shortcomings. This is a real DLC, not that new skin or special weapon rubbish, and it is definitely worth the money if you enjoyed the game. The boss battle finally understands the limitations of the engine and how to incorporate itself into the story, and the rest of the mission is more of what you already know and love from the main game.
Fun but short addition to DE:HR.borgiswa | July 26, 2013 | See all borgiswa's reviews »
I thoroughly enjoyed the recent Deus Ex game, but I was informed that The Missing Link was not very great. However, I was quite satisfied when I played through the game.
The gameplay was exactly the same (it is a DLC). The story was sub-par, sadly - the plot to Deus Ex Human Revolution was one of the greatest I have seen.
As a standalone DLC, you can expect certain things to be different. The "boss" is hardly a boss at all - but that is what I wanted. The only qualms I had with HR were the boss fights, which prevented you from doing a truly "pacifist" playthrough.
The game allows you to attempt different paths from the original game in terms of augmentations - so if you are looking for a bit of a training ground before your second playthrough of HR, this game works fine for that as well.
Overall - the game was decent and fine for DLC, but don't expect blockbuster gaming like we got from Human Revolution.
Nice, Cheap, and ShortDimbark | July 21, 2013 | See all Dimbark's reviews »
This small expansion is kinda like a min-game of Deus Ex. It fits in perfectly with the events of the original game, and introduces a couple new level designs for focused stealth. It is rather interesting trying to build yourself up again, and it is a worthwhile experience. It's everything you'd expect from a Human Revolution DLC.
It's a worthwhile purchase.
Good DLC, but rather shortKradath | July 15, 2013 | See all Kradath's reviews »
I enjoyed the DLC quite much and there's also not much to criticise about it other than its short length.
One thing which is important though is the time the DLC is played. It takes place within the base game itself so it's connected to the main story and it's not recommended to play this DLC without having the base game's story in the back of your mind.
It's best to play the base game first and then continue directly with the DLC.
Recommended for fans of DXHR.
