It paid off for me, depends on someone else.Gh0st233 | Nov. 4, 2012 | See all Gh0st233's reviews »
I will start of by saying that I usually dislike "cosmetic" DLC, but I will most likely buy some anyway, for the sake of it. This could be classified as a cosmetic DLC, as well.
You get 4 new characters that really look cool and have a lot of customizing options to choose from. My favourite character would have to be the Brigand. All of the new characters, when you use their specific weapons, have some quite gruesome animations, and in Brigand's case, the spear animations are very satisfying.
Is the DLC worth the 4$? That is for you to decide. I've played the multiplayer for a long time, and have stacked a lot of hours and progress in it, as I am actually through all the "ranks", so I can safely say this DLC was worth for me, because a fair share of the hours spent on the multiplayer aspect of the game has been using one of these characters.
However, I'd honestly recommend you to wait for a sale, especially because Assassin's Creed 3 is just around the corner, and the Revelations' multiplayer is, pretty much, going to be dead. For a dollar or two, it's definitely worth it. It's worth the full price if you like the multiplayer and, naturally, still play it.
