I might get both of the DLCs if they release them together in some sort of pack for real cheap.

Still looks like Vinny.

Im torn between my love for AC II, and "meh" for the way this DLC is integrated into the game.

Looks nice, but you don't really get a feel for what you'll actually be doing.

Yawn.

I played it this weekend and it was pretty fun but definitely nowhere near as polished as the main game - definitely felt like deleted scenes. That said, there were some pretty good assassinations, many of which were much more challenging than anything in the main game.

I still havent touched sequence 12 yet that I bought a couple of weeks ago >_>

Anyone know if the DLC packs will integrate properly if I'm the middle of the game and coming up on those sequences?

Posted by heatDrive88

If I saw correctly on the xbox live marketplace, there's an additional slightly more expensive version of this pack available for download that offers some other extras on top of this DLC... I think it was some of the extras that were only available in the collectors/limited edition box originally.

@Yzzerdd:  Yes, the DLC does properly integrate into the main game.  You get a continuous experience, as if nothing was ever deleted.  Having seen it both ways (I did them after beating the game, my wife in one continuous playthrough), getting it all at once improves the experience, and hence the DLC's value.  So if you aren't there yet, I highly recommend you pick them up before.

I just finished AC2 last wednesday playing through sequence 12 at the same time, but I guess I can live without this.

A warning to anyone thinking about purchasing this. There are two different versions of the Bonfire DLC. The basic one for 320msp, and one that includes 3 additional assassin tombs from the EU collector's edition for 540. 
 
As of right now there's no way to buy the assassin tombs by themselves, and if you purchase the 320 point version (since it's featured on the Xbox Spotlight), you're out of luck as you have to buy the more expensive one in addition to your original purchase to get those tombs.

This DLC was a lot better than the first one, but still not as good as the main game.  If you're an AC2 junkie like me, you'll like it, otherwise you could probably skip it.

You stab a bunch of people.

Assassin's Creed II: Nickle and Dimed Edition(s) :| 
 
I think I will just wait for when they package it all together in some sort of GOTY pack.

This is the mistake I made.  I am STILL kicking myself.  Grrrrrrr....  >:(

Sorry Ubisoft, but I already completed Assassin's Creed 2.

It's content that should have been in the game at release. That or tie all this DLC into one for 20 bucks, Stop buying this people. It's a great game, but your only making things worse.

@Kaigan: lmao

@nathos: What's with the PSN? What version do you get on Sony's console?

Posted by insane_shadowblade85
@Ghostiet:
Same. You have Bonfire of the Vanities and then the same one with the tombs. I bought the one with the tombs 3 days ago for 6.99.
Posted by Ghostiet

@Blitzer: That will change a fucking lot. You're right.

I'll buy this sooner or later, fuck even a DLC pack. I'm in a dire need for a reason to jump back into AC2, and because I already have a Platinum on that, those two sequences are perfect.

Worst attempt at hiding withheld retail content being marketed as DLC, where's the outcry though?

Posted by Cornman89

Does Ezio get the Apple back?!
 
I MUST KNOW!

I'm guessing because they pretty much said it out-right, so everyone knows, instead of hiding it in the game waiting for someone to look at the code.
Posted by John

This dlc is MAD buggy. Audio is sometime out of sync, Ezio's voice has some sort of echo. It has crashed on me twice and one time when I killed one of the nine guys and had the "i just killed you" conversation the memory rebooted as if I had been spotted by the guards. This BS, no wonder they took this sequence from the game, it was trash.

Then you free-run away.

Anyone feel like Ubisoft should of just delayed the release of the game until all the content could be released at once?  
 
I truly feel ripped off by the campaign when it randomly fast-forwarded to the end of the game with no good explanation as to why.  Frustrating.

Yep your still stabbing dudes.
