Customer Review

on 27 June 2014
I originally had the normal edition on Xbox 360, but when I learnt that there was a Directors Cut which had everything from all DLC included, improved gameplay and mechanics, for a very good price, I bought mine for £5.99.

It is literally one of the best games I have every played, and I highly recommend you to play this if you like Single player, RPG, stealth, explore, pickup collectible type games. As much as I highly recommend this game, there are a few issues. I have not added everything on here of what I think is good or bad, but it should give you a good idea.

Pros:
1: You get all of the DLC from the original game which you would have needed to buy, but with the Director's cut, you don't. This includes:
The Missing Link: Merged into the game, unlike the original. Show's what happens to Jensen after the harbor mission and before the Singapore mission.
Tactical Enhancement Pack: 3 new weapons including the Huntsman Silverback Double-Barreled Shotgun, Longsword Whisperhead Sniper Rifle (Silenced), and C4 detonation packs, along with a new item which was originally included in pre-order packs for the original, the Automatic Unlocking Device, which all of these can be found as you go through the game.
Tongs Rescue Bonus Mission: You are given a bonus mission by Tong to save his son before you are able to move on to the harbor mission.
2: Improved Boss fights and gameplay: Boss fights were pretty boring and not much happened in the original, but in the director's cut, there are more rooms and more ways on how to defeat the bosses you find. Also gameplay has been improved throughout the game.
3: Live commentary: During gameplay, you can listen to the game developers talking about certain aspects of the game whilst you play.
4: Playstation Vita Compatibility: You can use your PS Vita if you have one to have more of an experience. More info on the official website.

Cons: (yes the bit what everyone dreads)
1: BUGS AND GLITCHES! These are very common in the directors cut version, though some were perhaps removed from the original version, there are still many vital bugs and glitches in the game what has ruined it. There are ways of getting through them, and they do not happen 100% of the time, so hopefully others can avoid. Examples of these are:
Enemies what you have knocked out some how die suddenly, a side mission called 'cloak and daggers' can be hard to complete as an enemy can disappear, certain NPC's can 'shrink' into the ground. So yes, there are quite a few in the game, if you ever come across one, search the internet to find out how to get through them.
2: Boss fights: Yes I know I placed this into the pros category, but even though they have improved them, they are pretty easy to beat, even on the hardest difficulty, I feel that the bosses are sort of 'stiff' shall we say?
3: Make sure you have enough space on your hard drive, especially if you have an older version of the PS3 like myself as this holds 6-8 GB to install.

I would give this game a 5 star, but due to the bugs and glitches, I give it 4.

Hope this helps.
