Assassin's Creed III Liberation PS Vita review
Best Vita Game
Nice to see Vita get another solid title under its belt.
I havn't played far into it yet but the Voice ACting is just horrid! I wouldn't be able to give this game a 9 based solely on how much the voice acting has taken away from my gameplay experience. Gameplay and visuals so far are great though so hopefully things improve!
@syanara Dont call it Horrid, until you've tried the multiplayer.
I got this game last night and its pretty sweet so far even though I havent gotten far yet. The combat and free running are just like in the console.
Could you share some information about the framerate-issue? I will buy it tomorrow anyway but I can't imagine it being that bad as many reviews say.
Frame Rates are OK with me. It only dips once in a while, not enough for me to notice. I say it's a must buy for any AC fan with a Vita. My only complaint is that I wish it was longer.
I would not know about any frame rate issues wouldn't you have mentioned this here. Haven't notices anything. But haven't played to much, yet, either.
Reviews are looking great! Most are mentioning framerate issues though :( and comparing to the console versions (WHY?!) and one site is out hit hunting with a low score lol Certainly seems an impressive achievement though, on all accounts, and I'm looking forward to linking it up with AC3 on PS3 for the extra content ;)
The Vita gets compared to consoles because Sony advertises it as a console is your hands. If they never advertised it that way it wouldn't get compared.
Hopefully it does really well and others take note. If there is money to b made, many will jump on the boat and give us what we want, console quality games on the vita.
I really hope it's a 9/10. This site could be biased though lol.
Thats what i was thinking too, really need another solid title
Exactly what I was thinking. IGN gave it 7.2.
I'd say it's an 8.5 at the very max. 9 is a stretch. It's a fun game but there are some flaws that could have easily been fixed.
Guys, they are only numbers. There is no real way to quantify the enjoyment in a game. It's so arbitrary.
He did say it has a choppy framerate but this is looking great regardless
the multiplayer mode is shit it's not a multiplayer at all it's like a facebook game
How is the main game?
it's fine for now , i don't know how the game evolve later ...the good news if you get the assasins creed 3 on ps3 and you connect them to each other you got a an extra mission with connor in new york on psvita
Never even knew it had multiplayer.
The mp in this game makes no sense
It can hardly even be called multiplayer, it truly is like a facebook game. There's nodes all around the globe and you expend energy to send your agents to attack or defend them to earn your side points, and that's about it.
I got this game on my hands today and well... Best Vita game by far... I'm really impresed at the work that Ubisoft did with Liberation it's a well done game i must say and this shows the power that the Vita has... Keep it up Ubisoft! And don't forget about the Vita because you did a really good job with this title
It's getting a few mixed reviews. People are saying it's got a bad framerate and it's a watered down version of an AC game. Missions are boring etc etc. What do you think? as I really want to get this game and I'm not sure if I trust 90% of reviews. Damn...out of bubbles >_>
I just started playing. I think it is faster to get into the game than the PS3 version. I guess this is a design decision? With faster I mean, pick up and play. PS3 version has more cinematic sequences and feels slower to get into the story but carves it out more, while in the Vita version you jump right into the missions from the beginning. No hold up with cut scenes. I haven't noticed any frame rate issues. It looks gorgeous. Not quite like the PS3 version, but it's a handheld after all. Other than that, it's a typical AC game. Feels like the console title.
my pre-order copy is coming tomorrow :-) i am sure i'll enjoy it !
I bought Assasin's creed Liberation this morning. after about 3-4 hours of playing it I went back and returned it. honestly I myself didnt like it. I can see why people would enjoy the experience but i didnt so much. The framerate dips constantly but thats not really the problem for me. The graphics i expected to exceed Uncharted: Golden Abyss but they are not better. They are close tho. The fighting mechanics work fair enough but are a little clunky and repetitive.The missions were repetitive yet were enough to keep someone coming back. Many were typical assasins creed i guess from what i've read around here. Don't kill me just letting people know it is def. extremely overhyped. I Felt I was just holding "R" and running all the time. Many civilians would fall threw the ground and go threw walls. texture pop in is a small issue here as well. So much potential tho! My rating is 7/10 or "Decent". Long story short i returned it and exchanged for Need for Speed. havnt played it yet but i hope its better. I relle wanted Liberation to be really good i originally planned to get NFS first but trailers changed my mind.
this game looks empty, much less crowds than the other ACs games. :(
Gave up reading after it said that it had a arkham asylum/city combat feel to it. Arkham asylum copied assassins creed battle system.
Got it today and seemed pretty good from what I played. Full fledged AC game on a portable is what they promised and they delivered.
I got it this morning. Frame rate is comparable to the first Assassins Creed game on PS3. It's noticeable but not unplayable, and after a while you don't notice it often. It's obviously a bit pared back from the console games, but a brilliant achievement on the Vita.
I have played around 4 hours, the framerate drops to probably under 10fps at times, when running from guards through a city, other than that I'd guess it sits around 20-25fps, which is fine. I've reached the bayou which is a lot less cluttered than the city and it seems a lot better there as far a framerates go. Graphics are great for a handheld, and the experience is a fully fledged AC game on a handheld. It even has some mechanics the main series doesn't, such as 'personas' where you change between Lady, Slave and Assassin outfits to use different methods for completing a mission, one example: The Lady outfit can't climb so had to walk in the front door of a mansion as part of the mission. The Slave outfit can climb so I climbed up a tree and got through a side door. The Lady wouldn't have had to sneak around inside, whereas the Slave had to avoid detection.
Meanwhile at Qrphe's house... *Ragnarok Odyssey all day long*
ill buy this game when it gets a price drop i see no point in buying a handheld game priced at 40$
