Deus Ex: The Missing Link is a great example of how DLC should be, and provides a compelling insight that actually beefs up the already fantastic story of the main game. Giving players the opportunity to re-build Adam from scratch, and to demand a more adaptable approach from their gaming styles works well to create an exciting and fresh take on the game. If you're a fan of the main game you would be silly not to pick this up immediately.

Polished enough to be released as a stand-alone package, The Missing Link hits all the right notes and delivers more of everything that made Human Revolution such a standout title.

If you enjoyed playing through HR, TML is a must-have. Fans of the main game will find more of the same in the new chapter. unfortunately, you could also consider this a bit of a detriment to the experience because it is basically more of the same. Fans, such as myself, will consider this a good thing but those looking for an advancement to the HR formula will likely walk away a bit disappointed. Either way, TML is a solid offering that packs quite a bit of content into the package for a decent price.

It’s great to have an opportunity to revisit Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and The Missing Link is a substantial, tense and exciting piece of downloadable content that’s far more than just filler. It presents a stiff challenge and a great sub-plot alongside the opportunity to experiment with a different playstyle, branching out from what you may have done before. The repetition and the rather light runtime prevent it from being an essential purchase, but there’s still a lot to love here, especially for experienced players.

Le Chaînon Manquant est une extension soignée mais sans grande surprise. Passé une première partie qui a le mérite de chambouler vos habitudes en vous privant de vos augmentations, en vous soumettant des environnements verticaux et en vous plongeant dans une atmosphère particulièrement immersive, la suite s'avère bien plus convenue. Mais les améliorations graphiques apportées et le level design toujours aussi solide servent à merveille un gameplay qui n'a rien perdu de son efficacité. Voilà qui pourrait donc vous convaincre de prolonger l'expérience, moyennant tout de même 1200 MS points.

While The Missing Link does present an intriguing cast of mysterious characters, none of them feel particularly imperative or tug at your heartstrings. There is no intimacy in this title, and it shows. As a result The Missing Link lacks the drama and the intensity of its forebear. How much you get from it is reliant on how immersed you are in the saga. For those who enjoyed Human Evolution, and are chomping at the bit for more things for Jensen to see and do, then this downloabale add-on will be a welcome addition. But for those without a strong link to the series; it’d be prudent to give this one a miss.

Le Chaînon Manquant se contente de combler l'ellipse de trois jours du titre original sans prendre le moindre risque. On se contente ainsi de retrouver des ennemis aux déplacements robotiques, une progression qui mise beaucoup sur l'infiltration, sans oublier une écriture toujours aussi ciselée. Ici, Adam débute en victime, pour prendre petit à petit le galon de véritable peste pour son bourreau. Quant au rythme, le côté extrêmement linéaire pourra fortement agacer et il manque clairement le petit je-ne-sais-quoi de magie pour que nous vous conseillons de vous jeter les yeux fermés sur ce DLC. Au final, Eidos Interactive délivre un DLC de 4-5 heures plutôt correct, alors que nous attendions un contenu additionnel absolument fantastique, dans la lignée du titre d'origine en somme.

Even with the numerous presentation and pacing issues, The Missing Link is a solid adventure that opens up Adam Jensen's world and satiates my appetite for playing around in the year 2027. I'd recommend it to anyone who's looking for just a little more cybernetic action, adventure, and conspiracy in their lives.

Разработчики, похоже, тоже не уверены в ценности The Missing Link. Аддон использует ресурсы оригинала, однако является отдельным приложением и не встроен в основную кампанию. Впрочем, игроки, мечтающие стать кибернетическими полубогами еще на один вечер, вряд ли упустят даже такой шанс.

Perhaps The Missing Link’s biggest offense is that it feels like the safe, easy way to go with Human Revolution’s DLC. That isn’t to say that it isn’t good or that you shouldn’t purchase it, but it’s troubling that this content was denied to us in the core game. Without it, a chunk of Human Revolution was removed, and though not necessarily vital, it can’t be said that it isn’t missed. If you’re looking to know more about Jensen and the Human Revolution universe, The Missing Link is a necessary purchase, but I’m hopeful that the next DLC for this release explores new ground instead of showing off what was denied to us before.

Missing Link does shed some light on the final battle in the main game and hints at the importance of the research being done in the game (saying any more than that would be a spoiler). All told, though, the content was clearly removed from the main game for a reason and, especially at 1200msp/$14.99, should have stayed there. It just doesn’t hold up to the core Deus Ex: Human Revolution experience. Between very stilted voice acting from some guards and weird graphical glitches, like a gun free floating in a character’s hand during a conversation, Missing Link feels like it was polished up for release just to make a quick buck. It’s a shame, especially given how wonderful the core game was. This is certainly one instance where length of included content doesn’t justify the price tag.

For 1200 MS points (£8.99 on PS3 and PC), you'll also get 10 new achievements/trophies, which could help persuade somebody into parting with their coin. It's a steep price though, considering the five hours of content you get. It would be easier to recommend The Missing Link if it didn't feel so disjointed. Nothing that happens, both in terms of plot or augmentations, has any bearing on what follows. Those that have finished Human Revolution will simply be grateful for more Deus Ex, but taken out of the context of the main game, with its hub worlds, huge cast of characters and grandiose conspiracy, it doesn't offer enough to be considered an essential add-on.

But, elsewhere, The Missing Link feels routine, uninspired. There's no grand hook to the episode, leaving one with the feeling that it's here to plug a narrative gap in the main game rather than justify its presence on its own merits. The opportunity to revisit Human Revolution is a welcome one, but this is a competent expansion rather than an unmissable one.

Malgré un incipit intéressant et alléchant, ce premier DLC de Deus Ex : Human Revolution peine à convaincre. Le plaisir de jeu est toujours intact mais le peu de nouveautés, l'absence de renouvellement et l'abandon trop rapide de son postulat de départ donnent un goût un peu amer à cette traversée. Tout bien considéré, Le Chaînon Manquant est simplement un niveau en plus, ou en moins, selon l'opinion qu'on se fait des DLC, à l'aventure Deus Ex 3. Un niveau correct avec quelques bons moments mais qui n'offre finalement rien de vraiment renversant. A 11 euros sur PC (11,25 sur PS3 et 1.200 points sur Xbox 360) , on est en droit de trouver ça un peu léger.

Sentiment partagé avec ce premier DLC de Deus Ex : Human Revolution. D’un côté, on est évidemment emballé par cette nouvelle invitation au voyage (furtive et/ou sanglante), l'univers du jeu se révélant toujours aussi profond et cohérent. Et puis on s'aperçoit que le titre ne propose aucune évolution de forme ou de fond, en tout cas majeures, et qu'il impose un environnement relativement étriqué, avec des endroits que l'on doit traverser plusieurs fois. Enfin, techniquement, Le chaînon manquant souffre toujours un peu des éternelles approximations de son grand-frère. Reste que cette parenthèse d'environ 6-7 heures (mon temps de jeu estimé, sachant que je suis assez lent) vaut assurément le coup d'être vécue, ne serait-ce que pour le parti-pris assez extrême de son scénario, dans lequel Belltower montre son vrai visage...
