Liberation really had the opportunity to tell Assassin’s Creed’s most interesting story thus far, especially given the main character’s background. Unfortunately, it just falls short of the mark, thanks to poor pacing and lack of overall narrative direction, although I can categorically state that none of that is as a result of the protagonist.
You play the series’ first female assassin, Aveline de Grandpré; a softly spoken yet strong-willed French-African born into a wealthy family in 18th Century New Orleans. Publically, she’s a lady of leisure in the upper echelons of society, but spurred on by the death of her birth-mother and her desire to help her own people, she leads an exciting double life.
She’s an aristocrat by day, deadly assassin by night; she’s essentially an 18th Century Bruce Wayne
