IMO, yes.

All of them are worth it. Specially Da Vinci.

Battle of Forli - yeah
Bonfire of the Vanities - not really, but if you're a fan, you will probably want it anyway
Da Vinci Dissapearence DLC - absolutely 100%

07-12-2012, 12:30 AM
Battle of Forli - meh
Bonfire of the Vanities - it is a little better than BOF
Da Vinci Dissapearence DLC - absolutely 100%

All of them are worth it, but especially the AC2 ones. There's a rather strange gap in the main game without those. Battle of Forli is a bit boring, but Bonfire of Vanities has a lot of diverse missions. Da Vinci Disappearance isn't essential, but fun.

Yes, especially the Vanaties, there's like 10 assassinations in that one sequence, it's awesome!!

07-12-2012, 12:39 AM
Da Vinci's one is the best tho, at least in my opinion.

07-12-2012, 02:35 AM
Yeah, they're all good. You don't really need the Bonfire of the Vanities + Secret Locations pack though. The secret locations are nothing special. Just get the standard BOV pack.

If you only need one, Da Vinci by far. The others are only worth buying if you're one of those guys (like me) that needs to experience it all. Otherwise, you'll be perfectly fine just passing them up.

Yeah, for 20 American dollars (that's something like 12 quid) it's really not bad. They're not all really essential to the overall story except for the Da Vinci Disappearance, but I'd get them all anyway.

I think if you want to get 2, drop Da Vinci, mostly because the best way too play Bonfire or Battle of Forli is too play them hand in hand, so yeah.

You'll meet an old friend from AC2 in Da Vinci Disappearance. It also has an awesome catacomb.
Of the three Da Vinci is most worth it imo.

07-12-2012, 08:19 AM
Also, Da Vinci kinda has some importance to AC III.

07-12-2012, 08:23 AM
If you can afford them all get all 3. BoV is awesome.

07-12-2012, 08:28 AM
I think it added those things you can jump on?
They were awesome. Lol.

I'd say Vanities can be a little hard with the mission where you have to assassinate someone on a ship, and Da Vinci's last mission can be challenging if you go for 100% synch, but other than that, all 3 DLCs are worth purchasing.

With Bonfire and Battle of Forli are best played in a new playthrough, tho.
As in start a new playthrough and play them in it.

They're best played in any order. You don't need to make a new game to play them, and I don't see the point in making a whole new playthrough just because you bought some DLC.

Personally, I enjoyed them just as much when I first played them after completing the game and when I replayed it all.

I think if you just replay the entire thing it has a better flow...I guess.

I'd skip Battle of Forli. It's focused on combat and there are plenty of super dumb moments that made me laugh. They don't have the AI, number of characters on screen etc to do a full siege. The attemt is laughable but I suppose a bit cute also. Vanities is much, much better. Focuses on assasination missions. And you open up new areas together with a new way to platform (the trampoline, which is a bit of fun). Ending is very memorable imo and sums up some of the philosophy behind the assassin's order. Da Vinci is also very good. New fun areas and both Da Vinci and Salai are good characters. Ending is once again memorable.

The ending is the most tied too AC III. So it could be nice preparation...
