Assassin's Creed III: Liberation Review | D+PAD Magazine

D+PAD Writes:

With heroes fluidly traversing sprawling urban environs in hawk-beaked hoods and a plot centred around a fight against homogeny and oppression, Assassin’s Creed is a series that can be typified by a sense of freedom. It is this that makes its PS Vita debut, Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, such an interesting prospect; the host handheld is founded on the premise of breaking the shackles tying console-quality gaming to the living room and the game itself places the slave-trade – and the experience of slaves in the New World – at its thematic core. This tension between freedom and slavery is further emphasised by a structure that takes a far more controlled and linear direction than previous instalments. Where once there was boundless freedom, there is now a more controlled narrative path. (Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation, PS Vita) 2.5/5
