Watch Dogs Legion: Bloodline tries to be a love letter to fans of the series by bringing back two iconic characters as the protagonists, but in doing so, it removes the one gameplay mechanic that made Watch Dogs: Legion so memorable. Without characters to study, befriend, and recruit, Bloodline is a more watered-down open-world experience than the base game it's tied to. Worse is the fact that it doesn't expand on the base game at all. With no new regions to explore, activities to engage in, or gear to unlock, it's a pretty barebones package overall.

Watch Dogs: Legion - Bloodline is a shallow narrative expansion, with a good storyline undermined by a lazy structure and the choice of giving far less importance to London, which was the best element of the original game.

Bloodline represents Ubisoft going back to its roots on the Watch Dogs franchise, and your mileage will vary. Either way, it doesn't feel like a Legion DLC.

Bloodline expands on Watch Dogs Legion's London, with new missions, returning characters, and a slightly different setting to explore. While it doesn't add much in the way of new features, it's the perfect reason to come back to the Old Smoke and give it the middle finger once again.

Watch Dogs Legion is a better game these days, and Bloodline manages to build a stronger narrative out of its various mechanics and gameplay systems. It's more of the same under the surface, but playable characters Aiden and Wrench bring new enjoyment to the core campaign and evolving online modes, while simultaneously padding out the series' overall lore with their own storyline.

Watch Dogs: Legion - Bloodline injects new fun into the vanilla game, but stumbles a bit. Returning characters improve the narrative, but this DLC add-on lacks the base game’s free-form, squad-based action.

The first narrative expansion of Watch Dogs Legion: Bloodline is a strange creature: a kind of hybrid between the classic course of the series and the more libertarian approach followed with the latest iteration of the brand.

‎Bloodline is an expansion designed for all audiences, whether or not you have played the previous installments. It is true that, if you already know something about both characters it will be more interesting to find the references and mentions that Aiden and Wrench make, but if not, during our new adventure through the city of London; we will be explained the past of both and what relationship it has with our antagonist. Watch Dogs: Legion – Bloodline is a story of mixed feelings, reconciliations, revenge and conspiracy, a lot of conspiracy. Whether or not you played the base game is a good choice for fans of the series.

Despite its strong narrative focus, Bloodline is a sequel to Pearce’s Watch Dogs but a prequel to the events of Watch Dogs Legion; as such, we (at least partially) know what will happen next. I’m glad we had a chance to dip into Pearce’s journey again, but I’m hoping that any subsequent dealings with the character will be fully forward in time.

While Bloodline doesn't reinvent the wheel or take any substantive risks, it does a great job at bringing together the new world of Legion with old world of Watch Dogs and Watch Dogs 2 to offer a short but focused Watch Dogs experience.

Despite the great premises of the story, in short, it is an old-fashioned additional content: in terms of quantity there is little to complain about, Ubisoft knows how to package products that are worth the asking price and it is no coincidence that even after the end credits you can continue to play freely; but, overall, we have on our hands something that reshuffs what has already been seen in the original title without major heartaches or commitments on production values, if not in the coherent and accurate realization of the two characters dear to the public of the saga.

Watch Dogs: Legion Bloodline tries hard to cover the weaknesses of the original game, and actually does a pretty good job, but in the process of focusing on story and character development, fails to deliver the same gameplay standards.

Watch Dogs Legion Bloodline is a fantastic story expansion that delivers thrills, laughs and a fresh way to experience the futuristic London setting, which remains the true star of the show. This one shouldn’t be missed, especially for fans of the series who’ve been hungering for a reunion with some old friends.

If you’re a big fan of the original Watch Dogs, there’s no doubt you’ll get a kick out of stepping into Aiden Pearce’s Iconic shoes once more. Watch Dogs Legion: Bloodline tells a decent story, but it doesn’t do a great deal to expand the game’s world in any meaningful way. It’s another excuse to roam around London and gawp at the beautiful sights – but aside from one truly standout gameplay section, that’s about it.

Ultimately, Watch Dogs: Legion – Bloodline is a bit of a mixed bag. There's fun to be had here, but the story driving the expansion could have spent more time in the oven. Being able to play as Aiden and Wrench is a nice addition, with each offering a distinct style of play.

Bloodline DLC leads into London again with some new, but less attractive missions.

Watch Dogs: Legion Bloodlines brings familiar faces to new places, and if you can stand the tonal in-fighting, it's a worthwhile, occasionally daring story-driven adventure.
