Assassin's Creed III Liberation
In Reply to BATTLEFREAK2112
First of all this game looks great and I'm definitely getting it. Battlefreak, the Vita is a must for any gamer. It is an amazing system with more RAM than a PS3. Just think about how good of a deal it is: 2 cameras, an AMAZING touch screen that works better than an iPhone's, a touch panel, dual analog sticks, and even a tilt sensor! The little devil is a beautiful creation easily worth more than it costs. However, I would suggest you simply get the bundle with this game. You get a white Wi-Fi Vita, a 4gb memory card, and AC Liberation all for $250. You can't beat that. I personally pre-ordered the Vita because I wanted it so bad. Now, I don't use it too much because there aren't very many good games out yet. That's the biggest mistake of gaming; buying a console that doesn't have tons of good games on release date. But with all the games lined up already, I can firmly say the Vita is probably the greatest portable gaming system ever made.
Great Vita Title!
Just got the ps vita bundle today and the game is almost perfect! The story is amazing with great gameplay. The graphics are great for a handheld system and has great graphics. But then comes in the multiplayer. The multiplayer isnt what i expected. Basically what it is, is you try to conquer other players citys by clicking on there city and watching a hologram do generic fighting and see who wins.if you win your player levels up and you conquer the city. As you conquer citys your map expands. to make it worse there are many of these "conquer" games on the apple and android devices. They could have been a little bit more creative and its excruciatingly boring after ten minutes. Its no match to the console multiplayer modes on the ps3 and xbox. this was a mistake on ubisofts part. If your looking for lasting appeal theres always tons of side quests as ussual and all kinds of trophies but the multiplayer is not the best aspect of the game. Get the game for the story mode aspect and not the online. trust me.
Assassin's Creed III: Liberation is the first legit handheld game in the franchise. While there were Assassin's Creed games on both PSP and DS, none of these offered the console experience in handheld form. Liberation gives you a large sandbox world to explore, along with graphics that are pretty close to the games on the big home consoles. While it may not hit the visual mark of some scenes in Assassin's Creed III, I feel the world feels more alive than some other Assassin's Creed games I've played, as the world is full of pedestrians going about their business, such as sawing wood, working on houses, fishing, etc. You can even interact with the animals. This is a world that feels lived-in. Unlike many handheld games where you feel detached because of its portable style of play, Liberation immerses you in this world. This is Liberation, you should probably buy it.
In terms of story, I really enjoyed Aveline's tale. There's a good cast of colorful characters here, many brimming with lots of charm. Aveline is a strong protagonist. She walks and acts with a certain style of confidence, even when her race is suffering under slavery, she is a strong female character that is rare in games.
As far as graphics go, this is one of Vita's best. While it looks as good as Uncharted: Golden Abyss at times, it also sometimes looks a little worse. Like most open world games, Liberation has its highs and lows, but its highs are much higher than its lows are lower, because even at its lows, the world is still brimming with exceptional detail. You want to explore this beautiful world. Liberation's graphics are definitely near the top of Vita's library, especially considering this is an open world.
Onto the gameplay, personally, I love it. I think the mechanics feel very solid and it plays beautifully on the Vita. Running around the city, climbing buildings, taking down foes, etc. all feels great.
Despite being an incredible game, it does lack some polish to take it to that next level. Like Assassin's Creed III on home consoles, Liberation also has some glitches and framerate hiccups. I've seen people walk through houses, disappear from the world right in front of me, etc. To be fair, these are pretty minor distractions at best, but I think it's worth mentioning. Onto the framerate, it's usually pretty okay, but sometimes it'll get bogged down.
If you have a Vita and want a large open world game, I'd highly recommend buying Liberation.
Fun game the only negative thing I have to say is some of the mini games are VERY annoying i.e. a maze which requires you to move the vita around, and a camera brightness thing for decoding letters. Lucky I have experianced only 3 bugs, but they were very minor and lasted about half a second. Most of the time I just run around killing guards and exploring.
PS Vita's Best Possible Title Yet!
I enjoy my PS Vita. In fact, I have a pretty neat collection of Vita games, no digital ones though, I prefer having physical media. Like many, I have pretty much mastered all my vita games and have earned every trophy. I hope this game is long and full of activities because this will be one of those mobile games you carry with you wherever you go. I am excited for this.
A Great Game For The Vita.
well, to start off, this game gets a lot of things right. It has a African American woman as the main character, it pushes the vita's limits and therefore produces great gameplay and great graphics, and it also knows what it''s doing and supports the system in almost every way, adding new mechanics to a franchise that was already wonderful. Many people may avoid this game because of this however if you are a vita or future vita owner (like myself) it would be wise to look into this game if you haven't already. Also, if you're unsure about buying this game, there are many videos on youtube with gameplay to help you decide, as well as a bundle coming out on the same day as Assassin's Creed 3 that i think many people would consider purchasing. With only 11 days before this game releases, this game should be a game in every vita owners library.
Ps Vita title to date
As I do apprecite the series I am not a hardcore fan of the series but I am trying my best to give the Vita love for I do not get much time home to play the PS3. So far I have great titles such as; Hot Shots Golf, MGS Collection, and Uncharted: GA. Between Assassin's Creed: Liberation and COD: Declassified I chose ACIII:L and man am I glad I chose this game. This is probably one of the most beautiful and best handheld games I have ever played. I am a big fan of the Batman Series and when I learned that the combat system was similar I was hooked. The textures of the buildings and the graphics of the people are amazing. Gameplay is very smooth when you are on the go as far as walking, running, combat, and climbing buildings. The game comes with great looking menus and audio that assists you on the way. I especially love how you can take on different roles as an assassin, slave, and maiden. If your a gamer like me that has more play time on the go and need a game with depth and a great story, this is the title for you. I swear by Sony and had my Vita since launch and even thou the launch titles were not grand I am waiting patiently for the EPIC titles to come out and this is one EPIC game hands down. If there was a demo I would tell you to download it. I took a chance on this game with no gameplay and very minimal play of the series. I went based off veiwing gameplay, reviews, and word of mouth. I am very please with this title and I am sure you will be too. PSN ID: twizted_diablo
NOW I want a PSVita... MUST MEET MINIMUM CHARACTERS REQUIREMENT -_- !@#$%^&*()(*&^%$#@!@$%^&*()(*&^%
Not the portable AC I was looking for.
What I thought would be a great handheld version of the Assassin's Creed franchise is hampered down by glitches, sound problems and graphical hiccups that hurt the experience. This plays just like the other Assassin Creed games, the free running parkour is there and plays really nicely, the simple combat and the notoriety and assassinations are there from its console counter parts, but some of the design choices hold it back. The new persona system that lets you take on three personas (Assassin, Lady, and slave) work and looks good on paper but the end result leaves much to be desired. The game looks good on the system, but the game suffers from slow down in certain locations and there are graphical hiccups where NPC's will seem to vanish and reappear. The sound doesn't hold up that well either, there are some great voice acting and sound effects the sound will sometimes freakout. Now if you can look over all of this you got yourself a good action game that will keep you busy for a few hours, but for those who can't look pass these problems I recommend something else.
BETTER than the CONSOLE VERSION in many ways!
Ubisoft has made extreamly well video games in the past 5 years ranging from Rainbow 6 : Vegas 1 and 2, to the critacally acclaimed Assassin's Creed series. As all people know those are all CONSOLE games. When I herd that AC3 was going to happen, I was like "Well, I saw that coming!" and loged off my computer, not even watching the trailer! So the next day comes by and I heard that a differnt version of the game was coming to the PS VITA, now I was interested! I always knew that the VITA had some issues with its library of games, so I dident pay attetion to the system closely, but I have been wanting to get a vita since it came out eariler this year! what im going to do the day after x-mas is go to gamestop, get the AC3:LIBERATION crystal white bundle, a 8gb memory card, a starter kit, and RESISTANCE:BURNING SKIES. The total amount of money will come down to $335, but with all the X-MAS money ill get, and the power up rewards card discount combined, ill get exactly what i want for this Holiday 2012!!! if anybody has any open thoughts about this idea, comment plaese!!!
