Sometimes you just want a little more out of a game, and sometimes a couple new weapons gives you that option. The silenced sniper rifle is an absolute treat for those who prefer a stealth oriented style, allowing you to pick off enemies undetected at range. For those who want a more personal and up close experience, the Silverback shotgun is both satisfying and devastating. Ten thousand credits does seem like a bit of overkill, but it does assure that you'll never have to worry about prioritizing purchases.
Nothing that you'll find in this pack stands out as something that makes you wish it was in the original game. However, if you're looking a little extra boost to make the going easier, or a pair of weapons that fill their role quite capably, the Tactical Enhancement Pack is worth your attention.

Gaming has been around for around 40 years now. Since the early 70s publishers released a game and consumers bought said game. This is no longer how the industry functions. This brings us to the "Tactical Enhancement Pack" which adds two new items and some extra credits at the start of the game, And you can have it all for the low price of 1.99$.
This adds two new weapons, The suppressed sniper rifle and the shotgun. (Refereed to in game as the Longsword whisperhead and Huntsman Silverback respectively)both function as expected, With the rifle being quiet and deadly and the shotgun doing significant damage over a small area. Both are a good addition if you plan on the lethal approach, in addition they can be sold for a nonlethal play though.
The other feature of this is 10k credits which you receive at the start of the game. This affords you some extra versatility in how you start the game, allowing for better customization. However it also brakes progression in that now you have lots of credits to buy better weapons right out of the gate rather than having to work toward advancing your character. That said, if one is looking for a way to spice up a second play through, this is a good option.
All in all I do not dislike this DLC, everything added can add to the experience, HOWEVER, do NOT buy this at full price. Everything included in this could have and should have been included in the 50$ game when it was first purchased. Both weapons are fairly standard and the credits could have been a reward for a new game after completion. Even if it is a small price to pay, we as consumers should not encourage publishers to continue requiring us to buy our games piece by piece.

This is a bit of DLC that adds new guns to the game as well as giving you extra credits, This has a few effects on both your progression through the game as well as the pacing of the game.
Two new weapons are included, the shotgun and the Silenced Sniper rifle. Both fulfil their respective roles perfectly, The shotgun is powerful and the rifle is quiet and deadly. Though that is the case I cant help but feel somewhat cheated that I have to buy such things in addition to the game.
This also gives you extra money at the start of the game. This allows for buying of upgrades and weaponry at the start rather than slowly as the game progresses. This causes both positive and a negative results, as it gives you more freedom but at the cost of difficulty and pacing.
The main purpose of this DLC is to give you new toys to play with. There is never anything wrong with more toys, However being given them at the start of the game is a little bit of a letdown. That said if you have played through the game and want something a little extra for your second play through, This could add a little extra spice to your new game.

just some credits ( in game cash ) sniper and a double barrel... while the sniper is really useful ( and the cash ) still its really useless when you want to play "for real" or "how it should be played". I would suggest only buying it when its on sale ( 75% or more ) and only because to actually "own everything that Deus Ex Human Revolution has to offer"

This what this DLC does, actually making your game easier. At the start we get a silenced (and powerful) sniper rifle, which is great for some steal action, a double barreled shotgun (for some old boomstick style shooting) and 10 000 of credits.
As the weapons are very useful, you will find the credits more useful. Why? Because of the Praxis mods! It allows you to quickly buy 2 augmentation mods. Its a much better start than wihout the weapons and credits.
I'm giving it a high note because of the price. Its not high, and you don't need to buy it, won't make a change in the games story. Its a fair price, for a fair DLC.
