GSY REVIEW | X360, PS3, PC Wednesday, January 22, 2014 | 9:37 PM
We reviewed AC Liberation HD

After playing Black Flag on next gen or PC, discovering Assassin's Creed Liberation HD on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 is very close to a retro gaming experience. The technical issues of the console versions make it a bit difficult to soak in the game's atmosphere, but Aveline is an interesting character overall. The main problem is that the missions were built with a handheld in mind, which means they are short and easy. Narratively speaking, the game also falls short, not because the plot itself is disappointing, but because the voice acting is rather poor and the pace doesn't do the story justice. It's still a rather fun game to play for 5 to 6 hours (provided you only focus on the main campaign) free running in New Orleans and the bayou works well, but only the hardcore fans who haven't already given the Vita version a chance should give it a go.
Update: Added PC videos.

AC Liberation HD announced

If you are like me and you were intrigued by Assassin's Creed Liberation on Vita last year but are not interested in playing on portable consoles, well this one is for you. Ubisoft just announced the HD version, aptly named Assassin's Creed Liberation HD, to be released on PC, PSN and XBLA. Trailer and images inside.

    MrWhite Trico is massive. I felt like he was going to knock me over the edge a few times as he walked past. Great stuff. Shame about the teleportation, but fixing the motion sickness issue should open up (1 minute ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Imagine God of War 3 for a VR port. It'd be immense. The Last Guardian VR demo too was superb, but frustrating because it wasn't the full game, but showed it can work. (3 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite if it means more full experiences of standard flat games. It's a good model to take as you get the best of both worlds there. Older games are ideal. (5 minutes ago)

    MrWhite @KORNdog: I see your point there. Yeah, its safe in terms of actual game design, but it's not safe as far as Capcom as a dev goes when they invested in it. I'll currently take that kind of port job (6 minutes ago)

    Tinks ironically here's Peter Molyneux making statements about what a new Fable could offer without having any hand in making it [url] (30 minutes ago)

    Tinks some of them are weak recolors, but overall they're great (30 minutes ago)
