    For those who only want to extend their singleplayer experience, at £7.99, The Da Vinci Disappearance is a hard sell, despite how brilliantly crafted the new missions are. However, for those who also enjoy the online multiplayer, it's an absolute no-brainer, adding hours of additional replay value.

    With its abundant amount of content and inspiring story, The Da Vinci Disappearance DLC provides a definitive reason to head back into the Assassin's Creed universe again.

    Excellent value. [Issue#204, p.97]

    The story mode alone is worth the price of admission, but the new multiplayer modes, characters, and map will keep you coming back.

    The Da Vinci Disappearance is a good DLC, interesting for everyone who is looking for a couple of hours of nice single player story and, above all, for the most hardcore fans of the Brotherhood's multiplayer mode.

    Da Vincis disappearance is not only a very good DLC for its prize tag, but also a perfect ending after the original ending, so to speak. The single player story is of greater value than the multiplayer material, but the four characters and the new Protect Mode makes it worthwhile even if you don't care about Ezio's adventuring. They could have thrown in one or two more maps, though.

    Assassin's Creed Brotherhood: The Da Vinci Disappearance is fun, but it's the same fun you've been having with the game you already own and Ubisoft is asking you to fork over an additional $10.

    The Da Vinci Disappeareance offers a very short add on for the single player mode, focusing more on the online features. It's not cheap, still a must have for online ACB players.

    The combination of its weak story setup and the arduous grind to see it through completely killed the single player portion of this DLC add-on for me; thankfully, the multiplayer additions allow me to cautiously recommend it for those who enjoy playing AC:B online and have ten bucks to burn – everyone else, there's nothing much to see here.

In 1506, after the fall of the Borgia in Rome, Leonardo da Vinci was kidnapped by the Hermeticists, an underground cult dedicated to "transforming mankind". In order to find the inventor and friend, Ezio Auditore da Firenze embarked on a relentless quest to recover Leonardo's stolen paintings, who had apparently discovered the entrance to a hidden temple that the Hermeticists desired. Locations that Ezio traveled to included Belriguardo Castle, where he encountered Lucrezia Borgia, and the Temple of Pythagoras Full Review »

The Da Vinci Disappearance is neither great nor necessary,Ubisoft learns, and it has definitely learned with Assassin's Creed II DLC packs. The Da Vinci Disappearance is neither great nor necessary, but it is a fairly good DLC pack and has a lot of substance. The story is told in eight missions as a separate tale from the main story, but it manages to add some context to Ezio's story without being too serious or confusing. These story missions are varied and original. There are also two new templar lairs to explore, a new gambling side-game to play and a new armor to use. For the achievement-hungry, ten new trophies to earn. All these things are gimmicks, yes, but they stock up for a complete DLC pack that covers all basics. To top it off, new characters and game modes for the online multiplayer of Brotherhood. Ultimately, The Da Vinci Disappearance is an acceptable DLC pack that has something to please each buyer.
