    Most fans of this series will not hold back at pushing the purchase button to grab this DLC, and they will not be disappointed. Ubisoft has seemed to do it again with more masterful story telling, even in this small helping. The Da Vinci Disappearance will once again pull players into the robes of Ezio, and it is a return trip well worth it.

    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.

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

    There's easily 800 kills in these 800 points. Bargain! [June 2011, p.81]

    Pour yourself a beverage, grab the controller and sit down for a great evening of stabby stabby.

    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.

    Not every mission is a success, but charismatic characters and a great final stretch elevate this enjoyable add-on.

    Da Vinci doesn't hit consistent highs, but it's a fresh and fairly priced reason to dive back into Brotherhood months after its debut. [June 2011, p.85]

    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.

    Unfortunately, the first downloadable content for Assassinʼs Creed Brotherhood adds nothing really new and is offering a superficial plot and mission objectives that we have already seen. A couple of good platforming missions, along with the new and quite exciting Assassinate multiplayer mode, just aren't enough to justify the price tag of this DLC.

    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.

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 »

    The Single-Player Sequence is a work of art! Lots of interesting missions and finale mission is fantastic!!
    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!

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.
