It's DLC that was actually cut from the game to be made as such and it shows. If you played HR without it, you won't feel like you missed something, but after playing it you will notice you missed a lot of information, like flat out setup for the game's sequel, Mankind Divided. If you expect additional area like Detroit or Hengsha to freely explore, you will be disappointed, because it's not about that. It is expanded Omega Ranch, where first and foremost you must be sneaky and be aware of your surroundings, but there are some NPC you can talk to and side missions. Still, it's pretty good extension of Human Revolution, stealth is just as great, so is voice acting and the writing. If you liked HR, you will also like this one. It's pretty big, too, it can take up to 8 hours, so it's good value for your money.
This DLC has everything it was good in the main game, only in smaller quantities, but of course for a better price. I feel like the mission would've been better suited for the midgame, but i guess it works here as well. I initially didn't like the damned if you do, damned if you don't choice at the end, but apparently this is still a deus ex game, so if I looked harder...anyway, no if you get there, look harder! :) The boss battle is far superior to the ones in the main game though. You can actually use your sneaky-sneaky ninja skills for a change, and triumph.
Set during the story of human revolution in a separate location. It has all your favourite parts to a Deus Ex game, i played it 3 times to do all the options and achievements, not too long or too short, i very much enjoyed it!
Deus Ex: Human Revolution was on of my all time favourite game of the last generation. It had a great mix of gameplay and atmosphere all glued together with a compelling story. Whilst it's only piece of DLC, The Missing Link, is a short addition it is an addition that still holds onto these elements none the less. It's fun to play, harboring the same mechanics of the original title and has a story that makes you want to keep pushing forward. Whilst it may only be a small piece of DLC, it's build upon an already existing structure and universe that is extraordinarily great to jump back into.
Looking for more Deus Ex? The Missing Link offers several hours more of content for those looking to satisfy that craving. It doesn't really do anything differently from the main game itself; it's more of the same, which is really all anyone was asking for. The same mix of action and stealth is present here, in just as high of quality as the main campaign. It's a bit odd how this DLC takes place in the middle of the main game's plot, and launches separately. You'll have to start over from scratch, without any of the gear or augmentations you earned in Deus Ex itself, and they managed to shoehorn in some sort of explanation for it. Overall it's a great way to expand on your experience with an already superb game.
