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.

I was going to give it a try earlier for free, to see if I liked it, but after seeing the screens, and hearing what you guys have to say about it, ill skip it. Shame they didn't polish it up a little bit more for the PC.

    KORNdog that's my understanding of it anyway based on the little i've read about it. seems like it'll happen though. (4 Hours ago)

    KORNdog less risks (not like ubi are particualrly great in that regard anyway) and just barrier for them to do their job. (4 Hours ago)

    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it would be a conglomerate and that can be creatively very limiting if they don't fully understand the industry they've just dipped their toe in by buying a major publisher. (4 Hours ago)

    Sdarts Also, for the first time in BioWare's history, they are finally using full facial capture to record the actor's performance. Plus its the first time the Mass Effect team is using the Frostbite engine. (4 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @nostradamus: BioWare talks Mass Effect Andromeda squadmates, cut content and that missing release date: [url] Read 5th answer. (4 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Moonwalker: well, i'll on a leg and say its a "lie". It seems on par with DA:I, and if they think thats fine for a reveal trailer, then it doesn't bode well for the final product. (4 Hours ago)
