    Perhaps this is greatest compliment I can pay Liberation. This game restored my faith. Ubisoft can still produce a good Assassin's Creed game.

    Assassin's Creed III: Liberation HD is an example of been there, done that but not as well as in main Assassin's Creed series. [Feb 2014]

    Even a low budget Assassin’s Creed is more enjoyable than most AAA games. There’s not much to do besides the main story and you can deal with Liberation in less than 7 hours, but it will be time well spent. [03/2014, p.56]

    Quotation forthcoming.
  5. Ultimately, Liberation features a fantastic premise with an evocative heroine that sadly doesn’t measure up to any of the games in the main series. If you are an Assassin’s Creed nut who really wants to see the fictional universe from another perspective, give Liberation a whirl. If you are just looking for some more Assassin’s Creed action, the other six games are better than this one.

    Liberation's portable formula translates into home format losing part of its original appeal. The skin-tight Vita game fits better Aveline's sexy silhouette than this recycled outlet version. That is also technically out of fashion, after Black Flag.

    A slightly above-average game has finally its bad remake. Its graphics is basically the same, and all of the original design's mistakes now catch your eye even more.

This was an enjoyable game toHaving just finished Black Flag I was a little worried by early reviews, but I feel the Critics are too harsh. This was an enjoyable game to play. It is shorter than the most of the others but there is still plenty to do. Similar to AC Revelations in length. But when you consider the price point what can you really expect.

    Pros: Enjoyable. Get to see another part of the AC story. Some interesting new ideas
    Cons: Some interesting new ideas (nice try but not next time). The graphics do feel a little heavy after playing Black Flag. Needs bigger maps.

    Overall: A far port at a fair price. If you enjoy the series then get it, there is more game here than it first appears. But remember that it is not Black Flag, but still a lot of fun.

    Assassin’s Creed Liberation
    Underrated greatness.
    I didn’t expect much going into Liberation, this game originally came out on vita so I expected a small handheld game with very linear and cheap gameplay, but this isn’t what I got at all.
    Assassin’s Creed Liberation is a full-fledged Assassin’s Creed game
    But at the same time is probably the most video gamey game in the series
    This is the first time since Assassins Creed 3 where I didn’t rely on the story alone to drag me through to the end
    This game was in development at the same time as assassins creed 3 so this hd remake reminds you of the great things assassins creed has lost over the past 3 years
    Combat is swift and satisfying, nearly identical to that of Assassins creed 3
    Missions are actually fun, greatly varied, and mix in environmental stealth, social stealth, and combat beautifully.
    I really wasn’t expecting such fleshed out missions.
    There are of course a handful of cinematic style missions like Assassins Creed 3 introduced, but still there are great infiltration and social stealth AC2 style missions and tons of ac 1 style assassination missions to an extent.
    I say to an extent because while every assassination mission is built up, this was originally a hand held game, the missions are still pretty linear, but nowhere near as linear as black flag for example felt.
    Liberation tries to add a new mechanic to social stealth with its personas system
    You switch back and forth between assassin who’s notoriety rises the quickest, but has the most weapons at its disposal, slave persona that allows you to blend into workers and slave areas and a lady persona who’s notoriety increases much more slowly and allows you to bribe and charm guards to take them away from post
    Each persona also has their own set of side missions such as contracts and investigations and their own collectibles.
    Collectibles do unlock clothing items, but these items don’t do anything but look nice.
    It would’ve been cool if they actually added perks.
    You can also buy clothing and weapons, and you can use a trade system to buy and sell goods for profit to ensure you always have enough cash for what you need.
    Where I did however find disappointment is in the story and locations.
    There are 3 main locations in liberations and sadly these locations are very small
    As an original handheld game, understandably cities aren’t really the star of the show, if you’re buying liberation, you’re buying it more so for its story which honestly isn’t really that great
    The story is mildly interesting from an outside perspective, but nothing that leaves you craving more, the story content seems very filler in terms of pertaining to the AC universe
    Theres always atleast one thing that happens in an Assassins Creed game that makes me stop and think,
    I unfortunately didn’t experience this in my time with Liberation.
    And despite the smaller maps, newer additions such as fast travel not being here is massively annoying.
    While this may not be the greatest Assassin’s Creed game, this is still a great overall game that features many aspects that the games are now missing and introduce some features that you might recognize from a certain pirate game.
    If you’re a fan of the series, Assassins Creed Liberation is definitely worth your time to play through

However, the side characters were extremely thin, and the overall plot barely had anything to do with the series. Aside from a 3 sentence projection at the end the plot really had little to do with Assassins Creed's P.O.E plot.

    I liked the environment, and the protagonist was a strong character, but this could've really been developed more as a full game rather than just DLC.

    Very little explanation to the character or her place in the dna plot was given, and her growing up was rushed too much, if more time was given (more like conner's growing up from AC3) then people would've cared more about the character.

    The gameplay was good, similar to AC3 obviously, the HD version's graphics were decent and any changes/improvements to gameplay were enjoyable yet underdeveloped. (I think i only needed to use Aveline's unique tool 10 times in the game.

Aveline's attack/move/skill set are great those combos are really awesome it's just that you have to take time changing outfits for a certain mission unlike in other previous AC series you get to kill guards and change clothes on the spot for that mission. Graphics are good except that this runs like garbage on PC even though I can run AC4: black flag in ultra settings. Expand

First off, the game play felt rough and the graphics could have been made smoother. Second, The story was okay but lacked depth ( I won't say how because it might spoil it for some who are actually going to buy this... game). Third, and this is just my opinion... If you want a female protagonist to have that "epic" feel (which is really hard to generate) like Ezio or Connor or Altair you need to present the character animation as such... it is hard to get into the groove of the game with the protagonist looking like a stick figure weighing no more than 50kg...and portraying her as a hardcore assassin/killer with a touch of "model". It doesn't fit well with the game (at least for me), All that was needed was a bit more mass and height...

    Bad Game...
