OK, my embargo is up.  The DLC has some really great elements (introduces intrigue, a couple of interesting characters), but it's very short, feels very combat-heavy, is very linear, and doesn't do as good of a job as the regular game preparing you for what you should expect to put points into.  Plus some of the augs are almost completely useless here, which was frustrating.

Sounds like it'd be good enough at $10 then... but at $15 it needs to be more like a lightweight expansion than a chunk of added content.

The DLC is fun - don't get me wrong there.  However, it's not really friendly if you build your character certain ways and it's really short for a piece of $15 DLC.  If you're a hardcore DXHR fan, though, it's worth it.

3 hours, and that's including the time I spent dying a lot against hordes of enemies with my CASIE mod that I used some of my first Praxis Kits on.

Ah gotcha. I don't play through stuff terribly quickly, so I'm guessing 4-5 hours for me.

havent completed this game yet.. I think Dark Souls has ticked me off for a bit now.  I should jump back into Deus Ex, does any of the DLC have things essential or helpful for the regular campaign.

Eidos Montreal takes the blame for Deus Ex boss fights

Are you happy now?

. . .I'm honestly quite amazed people are still talking about who is to "blame" for them.

It has gone back and forth. They outsourced them probably due to time constraints, and it turns out EM still designed them.

Even when we talked to Eidos in August, they knew the boss fights weren't going to go over well. But that was like..around release time.

The only one I hated was Barrett anyway.

The Missing Link is half price on Steam until tomorrow (as well as the game itself). If DLC is distributed by Steam it's always worth waiting a month or two, since it's inevitably on sale at some point for a far more reasonable price.
