  1. Ezio battles against the evil Orsi brothers, sent by Rodrigo Borgia to Forli to get the Piece of Eden. Although The Battle of Forli is a pretty short addition to Assassin's Creed II, it's an intensive chapter and introduces a great female character, Caterina Sforza. But despite its low price, the revelation it was meant to be originally a part of the original game and it was only set a part to be sold as DLC drives us to give it a thumbs down.
  2. It seems like a fairly cheap move delivering what now comes across as an incomplete experience without purchasing this download content, and seeing as this is being listed with a $4.00/£3.20 buying price, it isn't exactly cheap to experience it.

This lame $4 add-on isn't even worth buying to get that missing achievement for flying into a guard. You're better off replaying the game. Full Review »

    Battle of Forli is the first DLC pack for Assassin's Creed II, expected ever since the release of the game to reveal one of the game's missingBattle of Forli is the first DLC pack for Assassin's Creed II, expected ever since the release of the game to reveal one of the game's missing memory sequences. Well, the wait was definitely not worth it, as Battle of Forli pretty much sucks. It adds no new elements to the game whatsoever; it is nothing more than a new story, told through six missions that are small variations of missions found in the main plot. The story makes little sense, and it fells stupid that Ezio would so foolishly leap into trouble after all he went through and everything he has achieved. Even worse, this DLC offers no closure. If you want to see the end of this confusing story you will have to buy the next DLC pack in order to reveal the final missing memory sequence. The only fun found in Battle of Forli is the possibility to use Da Vinci's flying machine whenever you want. Full Review »

    There is not much to say really about this downloadable addition to ACII, firstly i think you should buy it if you enjoyed the game itself, asThere is not much to say really about this downloadable addition to ACII, firstly i think you should buy it if you enjoyed the game itself, as it fills in missing parts from the campaign that completes the story. The reason i only gave it a eight is because i think this section should have just came with the game, as the price is quite high and this package lasts an hour, tops. The price does not reflect the package you're buying, otherwise, this is classic Assassin's Creed gaming and fully enjoyable. Full Review »
