Details: This is a review for the three story related downloadable content (DLC) for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. These three DLC’s are known as Desperate Measures, System Rift and A Criminal Past.
So there are three story related pieces of downloadable content for this game. They all came with the season pass so I’m going to do a quick and dirty review for all of them along with a score for each. There’s also a brief review of Breach.
Desperate Measures was a pre-order bonus turned free DLC at a later date. It’s basically a single, standalone mission that took me less than an our to get through. You sneak through Tarvos headquarters to steal some information. Then you get out. It’s short and mostly meaningless, but it’s free.
System Rift is a piece of standalone, story DLC. It takes place during the events of the main game. Pritchard, a hacker and character from the prior game, needs Jensen to break into a data bank. It took me approximately three hours to beat. It’s a fun bit of extra story. The main draw is to get more of Pritchard, who is a jerk, but still fun to witness. This game also serves as a prologue to Breach.
Breach is a free separate game that comes along with Mankind Divided. It’s mostly a puzzle game and obstacle course using the first person mechanics from the main game. I played it for about five minutes before I lost interest.
A Criminal Past is the final story DLC for Mankind Divided. I beat it in approximately three hours. It takes place before the events of the game and is a flashback to a mission where Jensen had to infiltrate a prison for augmented people. It was okay and likely the most fun and it had the best story of all the DLC.
