Introducing Assassin's Creed III Liberation, the stunning new chapter in the Assassin's Creed saga, designed exclusively for PlayStation Vita handheld entertainment system. The year is 1765. As the events leading up to the American Revolution heat up in the north, Spanish forces plan to take control of Louisiana in the south - but they have yet to reckon with Aveline, a deadly Assassin who will use every weapon and ability in her arsenal to win freedom for her land and her people. Whether silently eliminating her enemies with slow-motion chain kills or luring them into deadly traps, Aveline strikes mortal fear into the hearts of those who stand in her way. As an Assassin, Aveline soon finds herself on an unforgettable journey that will take her from the crowded streets of New Orleans to voodoo-haunted swamps and ancient Mayan ruins. She will play a pivotal role in the turbulent birth of a new nation as she fights for freedom, not only for herself, but for her fellow citizens.

First off, it's one of the few games that really gets to show off what the Vita can (and shouldn't) do and rather than being a shrunken down version of its console brother, it's a separate game in the same era.
The story so far:
As anyone who has read knows, this is the first game of the franchise to have a female lead by the name of Aveline and the story takes place in New Orleans. Not much is known about her except that she lives in a rich household and is an assassin. I am hoping along the lines as I play, we learn how she got involved. We have learned about the others before her including Conner so it would be nice for some back story.
Let's get right to it. The touch controls are gimmicky and while it's not a game breaker, it's not helping the game play either. I have had to do weird things like hold my Vita to lights and slide my fingers across the screen just so to open a letter. Thank goodness this doesn't happen too often but thankfully some of these moments don't always require complex touchscreen meaneuvers and that is a plus. Touch screen chain kills are hit or miss but some are just downright cool as you pull them off. Otherwise, the controls are very responsive and give me a mobile experience I have been looking for.
After fiddling around with the settings, I managed to find a good blend of music in the background and atmosphere in the foreground and while it may not be much immersive sound, it's still enough to give you a feel of being in the Big Easy in the 1700s. A lot of French speaking citizens, building noises and some of the usual sounds to give a nice ambiance for a game like this; it works for what it is.
While it is one of the best looking games to appear on the Vita since Uncharted, it also suffers from some of the same glitches of the consoles where there are weird clipping errors and NPC bugs which can cause a flower to attack when he shouldn't be attacking and people who blink in and out of scenery. It's not game breaking however, but on the other hand the game is indeed gorgeous and one can see the contrast between this and Boston.
Other cool things one may like
One of the things I really like is that Aveline can change costumes near the appropriate buidlings and each costume has its own set of strengths and weaknesses. Also for each costume, there are different alerts. She can even charm or bribe officers to help her get to places that she needs to go and that within itself is why I like what they did with this character. They let her act like a female and use her `feminine whiles' to distract as she gets her missions done and that is just one of the many weapons at her disposal.
This is pretty much the experience one can hope to imagine for the PS Vita. While so far it may not have the best story, graphically speaking and control wise, it's a good mobile Assassin's Creed experience one can get while on the go.
* Graphics are nice, looks clean and reminds me of Uncharted: Golden Abyss. No frame rate issues during fights like other people have had. Limited pop up.
* Sound is as mediocre as everyone has reviewed. I was playing with headphones on and it sounded like I was listening to some one play in the room next to me.
* Controls are fluid and easy. Killing people comes as easy as it ever has in AC and is just as fun.
* Voice acting is great even though the lackluster sound quality sounds like it was recorded into a tin can circa 1930.
So far I haven't had any glitches or game breakers. Granted I downloaded and installed the patch before playing. I don't doubt that people have had the problems they say they have, I just haven't had any problems so far, granted I've only played an hour. I saw one lady on the street walk through a fence in an alley way, but that kind of stuff happens in every game. So it's too soon to say it's the best PS Vita game. I still think Rayman Origins and Uncharted: Golden Abyss are the best handheld games for this system. But being only an hour into Assassins Creed III: Liberation, It is definitely a contender as long as I don't have any problems other people have, i.e. save data corruption and game break glitches. I'll update when I get further in.
While I was able to snag this and actually had time to play it at launch, I haven't ran into the game save bug. I believer they're working hard to patch it (if they hadn't already.)
Ultimately, this is one of the few legitimately good games that's available for the Vita, and I highly recommend it for those who are into stealth-based action games.
I have not come across any glitches or bugs that others have mentioned although I read a patch is on the way. The only con I have is that the combat can be a little difficult, it is not like I remember it being from the first AC where you could just hold down a button and counter every enemy. I highly recommend this game whether you are a fan or not. It is amazing that they were able to squeeze this living world on to a handheld.
