Gameplay is certainly more of the same, wrapped in a new narrative, but it matches the same high standard set by the original.

It doesn't worth your money. Everything good about the base game is gone with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided - A Criminal Past.

Criminal Past is a great finale for Mankind Divided, and only makes the desire for more Deus Ex stronger. The ending is pretty open, and with faces new and old it does a great job of giving us something different while being faithful to the franchise.

A disappointing finale for a series that started out with huge potential, but which fails to tie up any loose ends satisfactorily.

If you think about Mankind Divided, A Criminal Past feels like a more of the same: the plot is nothing special and the level design is not as brilliant as it was in the main game, but the prison is a fascinating scenary and the way you have to deal with the lack of augmentations make things way more interesting.

Remember Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from the Butcher Bay? Imagine something like that, but with exceptional gameplay from Deus Ex: Mankind Divided!

A Criminal Past represents a rich add-on for Deus Ex Mankind Divided, with a great level design and a beautiful storyline.

Combining some excellent stealth gameplay, lots of exploration, and some terrific plotting, "A Criminal Past" is peak Deus Ex.

A Criminal Past is a decent last hurrah for Mankind Divided. Its story is fine, but doesn't really add to what's come before. However, the Penthouse is a wonderfully designed and unique level that's well worth exploring for the half-dozen or so hours you're there. It also cleverly demotes your abilities, forcing you to change up your approach. It's a strong effort that tries a lot of new things, and while it's certainly not essential, a little more Deus Ex is always welcome.

A Criminal Past is a different kind of Deus Ex, and one that kept me engaged.
