When the Vita launched, I would marvel at how beautiful Uncharted: Golden Abyss was while playing it...but this game is on a whole different level. Uncharted was very linear in scope, and so the technical achievement there isn't quite as impressive. This game though...it's truly like picking up a PS3, cramming it into a tiny little handheld, and playing it anywhere. The depth of the world in this game is stunning. I find myself ignoring the task at hand, and climbing to the highest tower, and just taking a few minutes to look around. It's breathtaking...and you can play it on the toilet! What a world we live in.
It opens up the idea that ANY game could work on the vita. They should totally remake arkham city for this system..totally.
As for gameplay, it's assassin's creed through and through. If you like those games, you will like this game. It doesn't really stray from the script there.
The plot is ok, and keeps the game moving along. Nothing mind blowing, but good enough. Aveline is an excellent character, with a great back story and I find myself rooting for her as I am slashing up red coats.
The multi-player, at this point...I just don't get it. It's a complete loss for me...Read more ›
Now, the sound is a quite a bit off, its... not all too good sound design. There's not really ambient noise, and for an open world game, that's a bit odd. The other thing is, the over use of very old and almost cliche sound effects. Other than that, I have no complaints regarding technicalities.
Now, as for the story, I absolutely love it so far. The beginning was more than a little rocky, but once you got into it, it moved along nicely, and made you feel immersed. This is truly Assassins Creed as we all know and love, right in the palm of your hand. So, no real complaints there.
The multiplayer, however (Yes, it has multiplayer, which wasn't exactly announced), is quite... different. It uses the location data and pits Assassins against Abstergo agents, where there is a VAST overpopulation of Assassins, and Abstergo agents only seem to appear in the middle east and west Asia... Too much to explain, as I haven't delved deep enough, just know that Assassins Creed multiplayer is there, with a twist.
Now, for the new features. the Vita uses the touch screen, back touch panel, GPS, camera, and motion sensors. I have yet to use the latter two. The touch screen is used for various things, such as selecting weapons and enemies in a certain mode. The menus and such can be used with touch, and with the physical controls, which I much prefer. The back touch panel is for similar usage.Read more ›
I was excited to play this title because the story sounded intriguing. You are the daughter of a wealthy entrepreneur and his slave. When you are born, your father grants you and your mother freedom and raises you as his own. It's a time of turmoil in New Orleans. Your Mother disappears shortly after your father takes a wife. Your new stepmother plays the doting wife, but is actually playing a key role in emancipating local slaves. You use your mixed heritage to your advantage, dressing either as the wealthy debutant, the quiet slave girl or the assassin to deceive and gain access to areas or throw pursuers off your scent. You follow the teachings of an old Assassin, hiding out in the bayou, who adds a dash of voodoo into the mix here and there. All that's left of your mother are journal pages scattered throughout the city and countryside for you to collect. Each page brings you closer to the truth behind her disappearance.
Sounds great, right? Wrong. The story is cobbled together and you don't feel a lot of motivation for doing much of anything other than someone told you to do it. I found myself asking several times, "How did I know this was supposed to be here? How did I know that I was supposed to go over here?" At one point you go to Mexico to investigate slaves that are disappearing. There's this big show of you leaving New Orleans, you even wonder when/if you'll return, then you do like 4 missions and you're back in New Orleans saying that you found what you were looking for, but you had to wait for the right time to escape.Read more ›

Graphics were not up to the usual AC standards but you can only expect so much from a Vita game. Aveline is a refreshing character with a rather short but intriguing story. Read morePublished 25 days ago by kazulian
