Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation Review [Capsule Computers]

Joshua Spudic of Capsule Computers writes:

"Assassin’s Creed III Liberation is the first for the series for a few reasons. It is the first title on the Playstation Vita. It is the first to offer a female playable assassin who is not Desmond’s ancestor. It introduces new mechanics that provide a love/hate relationship. With a console counterpart looming over it, is Assassin’s Creed III Liberation good enough to bring those players to the Playstation Vita? In short, yes it will." (Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation, PS Vita) 8/10

One of the few games I've considered buying a Vita for.

I bought my Vita for this game, along with a few others. Definitely worth it, not just for this game, there are so many great games for the Vita.

Assassin's Creed III: Liberation has glitches but nothing game breaking. What I have found so far:

Screen goes black when purchasing or using a changing booth.
In ability to jump on land or swim without having to dive.
Falling through the world.
Riding in mid air 10 feet in front of an alligator during kill(similar to glitchy dragon slaying in Skyrim)
The game only thinks I have played for 3 hours when I have put almost 10 into the game.
A couple chest appear on map but not on screen.

My score for this game: 8/10
-2 for the glitches and the poor light/ball puzzles.

Pros:
Lengthy open world game, with interesting story and lovable characters. Great visuals and pretty solid gameplay. Excellent voice over work and fun use of a FB style MP game and "near" features.

Cons:
Glitches, damn light and ball puzzles are just not well made. Few frame hiccups every now and then. Would like some more side missions, even though there are a good amount.

i think it's best purchased two weeks form now, maybe by then a second patch will fix most of the bugs :)

I enjoyed it. I final got to play and beat it and I found it enjoyable. Being without power I got to enjoy each mission more when I got my Vita charged. I found it a little frustrating towards the end only because of the secondary task to get 100% sequence.

I also found the shining the rear camera towards the light, a pain and pointless in a way. A wasted use of the rear camera. This is a great game, but not perfect.

I understand what you mean the camera pointing segments were quite frustrating. I was just playing a few moments ago and I got up to go towards my lamp, before I even took one step apparently my floor counted and let me pass with ease. Either way fun game going back and forth doing some last minute bits myself.

I advise everyone to skip this or buy it used for under 20. Its buggy and has a few gamebreaking glitches. Its not worth playing if you cant finish the darn game. They rushed this out to sell off of AC3 and it worked. Too bad the game doesnt work also. Skip it on principal.
Godchild1020  +   776d ago
What gamebreaking glitches? I havent had my Vita connected to the internet, so I haven't had any updates or got a chance to play online, but I beat the game and had no issues stopping me from beating the game. The game has issues but they are not groundbreaking, the game is playable.

If this was a real rushed job, this is the best looking rushed job I've played.

Do connect it :D PS systems neeeeed to be connected and updated all the time :D
Godchild1020  +   775d ago
At Medziarz, I can't I don't have an internet connection in my house at the moment. I'm in one of those states that was hit with superstorm Sandy, so I can't receive an internet connection in my house only through my phone and that is spotty.

Once my area gets back power, I will be connected again.

I advise no one listen to this guy cause I think he is trolling
r21  +   776d ago
Easily one of Vita's great games despite the bugs and probably one of the longest vita games I've ever played :D
