Homemade images of AC Liberation

Homemade images of AC Liberation

Since we won't be able to give you off-screen videos of Assassin's Creed III: Liberation before next week, we thought you might be happy to see a bunch of homemade images of the game. Considering it's a handheld title set in an open environment, this episode looks quite good. Sure, there are a few framerate and aliasing issues, some occasional problems with the shadows or other visual elements too, but it is also the first Assassin's Creed game to feel like one on a handheld. Our only grip with it for now is with the sound quality of the voices, which sound pretty bad. Don't get us wrong, we don't mean the actors aren't good, it's the audio quality we feel is weak. It almost sounds like the first Broken Sword title if you catch our meaning.

Oh my what is it with the Vita and it's screenshot taking option? It makes the game look sooooo much uglier than it really is. I saw this game at Gamescom and it looked mighty impressive for Vita. These screenshots are making it look worse than a PSP game....

If you check out the pictures with your smartphone, they're very close to what you get when playing.

Ah ok. Thanks for that. I just find it weird why the Vita's screenshot option is so bad. I remember when i bought my Vita and i had Shinobido with it, and it looked crisp, and then i took a screenshot to show friends and i was like...hell no, i ain't sending them these shots, lol.

Looks like a PS2 game on your pocket. take that PSP, it only took 8 years.

The music is by somebody different then AC3 too. From what i have heard so far its a nice soundtrack. Looks better then alot of 360 games. Really enjoying it. You have obviously played it Nostradamnation

images look like shit as all vita screens do, but this game looks stunning on the Vita screen, same goes for most wanted. SUPER impressive. both devs have clearly got their head around the handheld.

I don't even think the full game is good looking, neither are other open world games like RDR, Some nice colours and view distance.

imo best open world game is INFAMOUS 2

The game looked good in person from what i played at eurogamer. I actually think Sly 4 maybe one of the best looking games on Vita, but it only runs at 30fps, compared to 60 fps on PS3.

Yeah, i'd probably agree with that...sleeping dogs and LA noire look pretty nice too. More-so at night then during the day. Never particularly thought much of rdr or assassins creed games. They're massive, but rdr is just expanses of wasteland, and AC has some of the most copy/paste cities in gaming.

The open-world "genre" doesnt exactly lend itself to mind blowing visuals tho. The processing power goes elsewhere.

Another heavily upscaled Vita game. It's not a pretty sight.

I suspect the Vita will not be long for this world. I give it another 12 months, tops, before Sony quietly slow releases down a trickle, then discount it, then discontinue it.

    Sdarts So Forza Horizon 3 also benefitted from FM6: Apex. Quantum Break's PC version was Remedy's first foray into DirectX 12 development. And I also agree it seems like it was decided late in the process. (3 Hours ago)

    Sdarts Source: [url] He was referring to Quantum Break on PC. Also, I'm sure Turn 10 shared what it learned from Forza Motorsport 6: Apex with Playground Games (3 Hours ago)

    alimokrane perform very well. I am expecting Gears 4 to follow suit. (4 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane To be honest, QB looks great on XO. the PC port was a fiasco really.. MS shouldnt have forced them to do it. Other games which intended to have a DX12 port well early look great. ReCore and Forza H3 (4 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Not that DX12 wasn't (isn't?) over hyped :D (4 Hours ago)

    nostradamus AW runs at 10fps on my laptop, when UE3 and other engines thrive running on that shit toaster. (4 Hours ago)
