Assassin's Creed III Liberation
i like the lands and the art work for this game.The fighting is great in this game i like it so much.
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.

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.
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!!!
A fair game, yet somewhat disapointing
You're probably going to buy this game anyway and enjoy it, I wouldn't blame you. It's not a bad game at all, in fact it's quite good. My problem with it is that its feel goes tries for an assassin game, but contrasts itself with an Arkham City approach, which really bothers the heck out of me. The original game was flawed because it was about "Sneaky stabby gameplay" but this doesn't really do that, instead it's more "Here is your equipment from the pass games, plus some new stuff, and you will fight like Batman" If the level design was made for more of a stalker stealth approach, this game would have been WAY better, instead you occasionally stab a dude, and fight everyone, in an unfitting way. You don't have to escape, you have to kill everyone. Really, this series itself lost focus on the stealth assassin aspect and went for more of a fast pace run to the objective and fight everyone sort of game.
i like this game
This game is very good for the psvita really shows the power of the psvita i wish they made another one for vita
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.
Good on the go
This is a fun game, but I wouldn't say it is the best game. The gameplay is fun and I am really happy with the freedom that comes with the open world. The free running is what you would expect out of AC games and much of the running and fighting movements come straight out of AC III. Don't expect a AC multiplayer experience, it is more of a Risk type of gameplay. The frame rate will get very choppy if you run for a while or in big fights (hopefully a patch will be made to fix this). The graphics are pretty good for a vita game, but not anything like LBP or Wipeout. Overall, it is a fun game that will help with my AC fix when I'm not near my Xbox 360. It is definitely a fun game that will keep my attention for a while, and if you are an AC fan like myself, this is definitely a good game if your Vita is collecting dust.
I've played several of the Assassin's Creed games - all of them had their merits and were worthwhile uses of my time - but all of them were also on my Xbox. I've never felt the need to get another console (besides my old PS2 and the ubiquitous kid-compelled Wii), but this game being a Vita exclusive has perked my interest. Part of that is because it is Assassin's Creed, and part of that (perhaps most?) is that it is set in my hometown of New Orleans. I don't know what reviews this game will get, although I am sure the gameplay will be similar to the others and the storyline so far revealed is compelling, yet it has me interested in a portable console more than anything else has yet managed. If this 36 year old can figure out a use for a Playstation Vita, this may be the "use" I need to get it!
