    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.

    Even though the dlc is cheapish I still believe it is a little overpriced. The dlc gives you about 2-4 hours of extra play plus some extra achievements to keep you busy. It is definetly a move forward for Assassin's Creed dlc seen as the dlc for AC2 were extremely short and, in my opinion, not up to standard that I expect from such a popular Ubisoft game francise. People may say, "It does live up to the price, it adds single player and multiplayer content," well, last time I checked they were doing free multiplayer content as previously so why add on the multiplayer charge now. Criticism of the price over I will say that this dlc is rather fun to play and it does add a little to the main storyline of Assassin's Creed. For fans I do think it is worth buying, other people, well, I guess wait for a discount . Full Review »

    Absolutely Superb DLC!!!
    The Single-Player Sequence is a work of art! Lots of interesting missions and finale mission is fantastic!!
    Mindblowing ending which might spark up a few more debates on Brotherhood's cliffhanger and Assassin's Creed III's premise. On the multiplayer side, we get 4 new personas, 1 map and 2 new game modes. All the pre-order bonus characters are unlocked.
    Overall, A Superb DLC from UBISOFT! Insiemme per la vittoria!

    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.
