    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.

    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.

    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]

    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 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 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.

    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!
