One of the biggest draws of the Deus Ex franchise is how it allows you to choose a wide array of options on how to approach the missions in the game. And what this DLC offers is a handful of new tools to expand on your preferred play style. There's nothing particularly game changing in here; the equipment simply gives you some new ways to tackle the game's challenges. Remote explosives are great for fans of surprising unsuspecting foes, the automatic unlocker will make getting into secured areas a simpler process, while the Linebacker grenade launcher is great for those that feel that every problem is best solved with a little bit of overkill.
The new mission is short but integrated well into the game, and features a fan favorite from the original. It's not necessary for the complete experience, but is a nice throwback for fans of the series.
Don't purchase this expecting anything groundbreaking. If you're looking for some new ways to play around though, for a few dollars you'll find a satisfactory amount of content.

its just some extra weapons that are mainly to destroy your enemies, while in my opinion you can play the game without these stuff, but if you really want to see some explosives and BOOM then it is a nice offer ( when on sale ) for you.
Nods and (almost) cheats.berthor | Aug. 3, 2013 | See all berthor's reviews »
So, to start off we have the items to discuss.
The AUD items work similar to multitools in DX, point at a hackable item, press the grenade button, and watch it unlock/login. If you don't think they are appropriate and break the game, drop them as you find them.
Grenade launchers are a lot of fun. Can you even manage to carry this thing around along with your other gear? You can? Ok then I guess if you don't think it breaks the game, you can take it with you. If you think it is unbalanced, drop it.
The mission : This is the real reason to get this DLC, even though it is very short. It blends in seamlessly with the rest of the game and gives a superior nod to the Tong you may be more familiar with. The difficulty is on par with the rest of the game. Want more Deus Ex in your Deus Ex? Grab this.

It may not add much meaningful content to the game, but having access to some deadly weapons early on gives you a distinct advantage, which is worth the sale price.

This DLC for Deus Ex: Human Revolution unlocks a bonus mission (involving Tracer Tong) and features three new items: M-28 Remote Explosive, Automatic Unlocking Device and the The Linebacker G-87 MSGL grenade launcher. It was originally available as a pre-order bonus from certain retailers. The mission is called "You Scratch My Back, I'll Scratch Yours". It takes place during Jensen's second visit to Hengsha. You have to meet Tong's thugs, infiltrate a noodle factory where you rescue Tong and then you receive the Linebacker G-87 MSGL grenade launcher as a reward.
