Top Positive Review

Do you like Assassins Creed? Do you like having a full console game anywhere you go? This game is perfect for you. This a very impressive game especially when you think about what it is running on. This is a must have for all Vita owners and it is a shame that this system did not take off for us to get more of these. It is a full open world in a unique setting. The touch controls are good in areas and not so good in others. Not bad for a first try at this type of thing. There are a few performance issues in some spots but nothing game breaking. The story so far is interesting and a break from the normal assassins creed stories.

Top Critical Review

Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation in theory is a very impressive game. It’s a handheld title that rivals its console brethren on most levels, namely sound, graphics and content. If you’ve played an Assassin’s Creed game before, this experience is not far different from games in the past and you’ll quickly find yourself running, traversing and assassinating enemies with the familiar tools of the trade. For brief sections, this game is a lot of fun and exactly what an Assassin’s Creed fan would want from a handheld Assassin’s Creed game.

Unfortunately, the development team behind Liberation found it necessary to fill the game with Vita-specific gimmicks that aren’t intuitive enough or don’t work as well as they should in concept. These include tilting and turning the system to complete various puzzles, rubbing two fingers across both touch screens similar to ripping open an envelope and holding the camera up to a light source to reveal mission-specific secrets. These moments will quickly sour your experience because they are light on instructions, tricky to master, and often don’t work. With the number of times you’ll have to restart sections or redo certain puzzles, you’ll begin to question whether this shortcoming is an issue with the Vita’s hardware or sloppy tech poorly implemented by Ubisoft. Besides the newly introduced mechanics, Liberation does find itself with the same issues that previous Assassin’s Creed games have had as well. The parkour elements of the game (running, climbing, jumping from rooftop to rooftop) are all there in their same glitchy glory and are just as infuriating and frustrating as their console counterparts.

In short, there are multiple 5 to 10 minute sections of Liberation that feel great, are quick and responsive and work just like you would expect them to. Sadly, though, there are even more elongated sections of this game that will make you want to turn your system off and never turn it back on again.
