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 ›
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 ›
I didn't think much of the recent AC movie trailer, but apparently it did put me in the mood to play some AC. I've replayed AC1, 2, Brotherhood and Revelations to death over the years, not sure when I'll be ready to replay any of them again. I've played AC3 twice but will probably never play it again; I eventually got over how disappointing it was when it first released, and was able to enjoy it more the second time around, but I still rank it as one of the worst in the series. I loved Syndicate, but that was only a few months ago and I really gorged on it; won't be ready to replay it for good long while yet. Shortly after wrapping up Syndicate late last year, I replayed Unity, which I happen to think is one of the better games in the series and was unjustly maligned. I was never interested in Rogue and vowed to never play it unless they release a PS4 version. So the only option seemed to be AC4 Black Flag, which I personally rank low in the series (which is part of the reason I was never interested in Rogue.) Swapping out the iconic huge cities in exchange for the open sea dotted with tiny island villages and a small version of Havana wasn't a good trade in my eyes, and I don't have a pirate fetish. I thought I'd never play it a second time, but that was the game I settled on. A few days later, I'd beaten it again.Read more ›

Confusing storyline. The missions are hard to understand. The game is weird to adapt to. It's like starting a movie in the middle and finding out, three quarters of the way... Read morePublished 25 days ago by Bobby E.
Don't expect an AC console experience with this game. Expect a really neat open world game that you can play on the toilet.Published 27 days ago by Sonia
Not the best AC game but its definately a top-tier Vita game for sure. I have 62 Vita games, this stands out as one of the more polished ones, up there with uncharted, Killzone,... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Brion Fallon
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 2 months ago by kazulian
