    Bad Blood is the furthest thing from a collection of repurposed missions with a character reskin.

    Bad Blood is a solid DLC, with a lot of contents and a new (more empathic) protagonist.

    Compared to Aiden Pearce, T-Bone is a much more likeable protagonist. Unfortunately, Bad Blood doesn’t do nearly enough to fix and improve the problems with Watch Dogs’ gameplay. The fact that T-Bone basically plays like a re-skinned Aiden doesn’t help. [Jan 2015]

    While T-Bone doesn’t do too much to differentiate himself from Aiden Pearce, Bad Blood provides a few interesting twists to the core gameplay and some memorable moments along the way. With a great new set of story missions lasting several hours long, and the addition of co-op play, it’s worth picking up despite some repetitive side content.

    Bad Blood is certainly not a revolutionary downloadable content, nor it's able to change the minds of those who have already disliked the product by Ubisoft, but it's still a good DLC, with a far more charismatic protagonist than Aiden Pearce.

    10 additional one player missions with T-Bone and a fun (but nothing particularly flashy) cooperative mode are the bells and whistles of this new DLC for Watch Dogs.

    The story takes place after the events of the original story with Aiden Pearce, where T-Bone tries to help his buddy with his situation so that they could leave Chicago.

    This new toy is an RC car that you can stun enemies, hack, and have it self destruct! You'll have an unlimited source of them, but could only use it one at a time within a red zone. I don't really find myself ever using it though, unless if it's to have it go into a vent to hack a door open, but it is fun when you make yourself use it.

    It'll take plenty of hours to complete this new wheel, because you'll have to complete a certain side mission multiple times to finish it, also to do investigations and Code searches, so good luck with that.

    A worthy expansion, if you own the game Watch Dogs.

    The Original game didn't have a strong story and main character; however, it was an overall enjoyable game that delivered a lot of content andThe Original game didn't have a strong story and main character; however, it was an overall enjoyable game that delivered a lot of content and i was excited to see if the new DLC, Bad Blood could freshen things up and bring us a new perspective on things.

    Bad Blood is set after the events of the first game were you control Raymond Kenney, known as T-Bone. He was preparing to disappear of the grid after his final mission; however, he receives a desperate phone call from his former colleague, Tobias Frewar and T-bone agrees to help.

    T-Bone is a more likable character than Aiden and his relationship with Tobias is interesting as it gives us more depth into the characters. Bad Blood packs 10 main story missions that stick to the formula that worked well in the original and the campaign is around 6 hrs.

    T-Bone is equipped with a wrench and taser that are used for melee attacks, but playing him is very similar to Aiden and the skills and abilities are mostly the same. So upgrading doesn't feel very rewarding. There are a couple of new mechanics. You are now able to hack in to cameras equipped with guns to take out enemies. You will also be able to control an RC car that can be used for some missions. It is equipped with a camera and it can be used to infiltrate hostile territories for surveillance and hacking. Once updated, it can be used to stun enemies and can be detonated to take out many people at the same time.

    The story is average with nothing special; however, one of the main reasons to play Bad Blood is the highly addictive street pass missions that are very entertaining and are the highlights of the game. Missions ranges from neutralizing everyone one on sight, hacking in to target phones to destroying cargo. These missions include secondary objectives that are quite challenging.

    You can play solo or coop but street sweeper is much more fun if played with a partner as you will form strategies in approaching a mission from different angels.

    The overall DLC is enjoyable to play, with some memorable moments along the way and the interesting addition of the Co-op is high in replayabilty.
