Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation: A quest free of restraint | SnackBarGames Review

SnackBarGames write:

"Portable entries of big franchises are usually created one of two ways: They are an attempt to emulate the gameplay of the main games as best as possible, or they are something different entirely. The latter usually focuses on experimentation while trying to stay as connected as possible to the original games. The former, on the other hand, rarely succeeds, mostly due to the hardware limitations of the handheld in question. Ubisoft has tried both approaches with Assassin’s Creed, but thanks to the Vita’s impressive technical specs, the former finally seems entirely plausible for the franchise. Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation is that game, blending together well-known elements of the series with some Vita-specific gimmicks that rarely succeed." (Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation, PS Vita) 3/5

This is getting ridiculous. AC3L is getting practically the same rank on metacritic as "Assassin's Creed II: Discovery", a sidescroller platform game for DS.
Another illustration for flawed logic of reviewers.

I agree. It's kind of irritating as well. The review system means absolutely nothing these days because the reviews are never consistent from game to game.

Its a solid game. Everyone just hates on vita for no reason. if it was on console it wouldn't be very good because it lacks the console polish. but for ANY HANDHELD its amazing. a technical marvel that they fit that large of an open world. everything plays right and theirs tons of content. It takes a long time to get all the trophies. Reviewers nowadays are just bloggers. these are people who prolly dont even own the vita and are given one to do the review.
So they go from their Xbox/Ps3/WiiU and compare the differences. its ridiculous. i dont trust reviews anymore. especially after Resistance: Burning Skies. it has a horrible metacritic score and reviewers destroyed its reputation. Its a good game for a handheld plain and simple. controls are pretty bang on. people say theirs some Lag but i never encountered one bit of it. Theirs memory issues (dead chimera disappear after like 3 seconds) Sony prolly rushed Nihilistic to get it out the door. Hopefully it doesn't happen with Declassified. seems to be coming along relle good.

PS: 3DS/Wii is WEAK! Sorry i don't play Pokemon and haven't since like 4th grade people. Only people i see playing those systems are 10 year olds.
