Familiar Territory From A New Perspective

Game Informer
11 November 2014
  • Conclusion: Concept: Retread familiar gameplay with a new story of an assassin fallen from his perch Graphics: Only available on last-gen hardware, Rogue still manages to present some impressive environments Sound: Voice work and music are strong, but you’ve heard some of these tunes before Playability: The same controls that worked in the last two installments remain in place to good effect Entertainment: A large game with lots to explore, as long as you don’t mind a sense of déjà...

Assassin's Creed Liberation HD

The Gamers Temple
4 October 2014
  • Excerpt: There are a few things that you need to know if you're considering buying Assassin's Creed Liberation HD. The game is a re-issue of a PlayStation Vita game released at about the same time Assassin's Creed III appeared on consoles. It's been given a graphics overhaul to improve its appearance on larger screens, but visually it's still not on par with Black Flag or Assassin's Creed III.

Assassin’s Creed: Liberation HD

EL33TONLINE
7 March 2014
  • Excerpt: The year is 1765, and we are introduced to Aveline de Grandpré of French African descent. Abandoned by her mother and taken in by a wealthy merchant family, Aveline is trained in the arts of an assassin by a rather interesting and unlikely mentor, and in a time of unrest and on the verge of war we see the Spanish trying to take control of Louisiana and its lucrative slave trade – it’s Avaline’s job to root out the Templars behind this plot and stop them.

  • Excerpt: It's easy to imagine a big-budget game tackling slavery with the subtlety of a hammer, but Freedom Cry is an emotional triumph...with some ethical issues.

Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD

Total Xbox
28 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Aveline de Grandpré isn’t the first Assassin’s Creed hero to come from a privileged background, but she’s certainly the first to exploit it so ruthlessly. Liberation HD represents multiple firsts for the series, actually: the first female protagonist, the first handheld game to be ported to XBLA, and the first time we’ve seen fresh gameplay spring so seamlessly from the story and its characters.
  • Pros: + Wonderfully novel, engaging tie between main character’s background and gameplay; fascinating look at a different kind of colonial American life., + Superb voice-acting; notably fluid freerunning.
  • Cons: - Sense of story completely fragmented; use of personas could go deeper; sparse on side activities, particularly for an Assassin’s Creed game., ? Anyone else shipping Aveline and Gerald?

Can’t Quite Make the Leap | Assassin’s Creed: Liberation HD Review

New Gamer Nation
22 January 2014
  • Conclusion: Luckily, this game is priced at $20 USD, and that makes it a little more reasonable to commit to a purchase. The only people who will enjoy this game are the people who love the Assassin’s Creed franchise and want to experience all of it. Even then, this title is a standalone game so it doesn’t feel like it is a part of the franchise. For those out there who don’t have a handheld and thought they missed a game in their favorite franchise; you didn’t.
  • Pros: +Good Protagonist, +Good Combat
  • Cons: -Poor Story, -Lots of Bugs

Assassin’s Creed: Liberation HD

21 January 2014
  • Conclusion: Assassin’s Creed: Liberation HD is an agreeable adventure that die-hard fans of the series are certain to enjoy. Those who look upon Black Flag as the reinvention of an ailing franchise are advised to leave their expectations at the door however, as this is a grounded affair similar to the AC titles of a few years ago.

Assassin's Creed Liberation HD

IGN
17 January 2014
  • Conclusion: For a multitude of reasons, Aveline is the kind of character I’d like to see more of in gaming, and watching her flounder through this game all over again hurt. I wanted to see her tale succeed, but Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD is just too lacking in too many areas to make it happen. There’s no one thing to point to as overtly broken; it simply dies by a thousand tiny cuts.
  • Pros: Cool main character
  • Cons: Inconsistent graphics, Choppy story, Boring missions, Persona system

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag - Freedom Cry

Game Revolution
13 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Once more with feeling. Ubisoft cranks out a brand-new Assassin’s Creed game once a year. I should know. I’ve played every single Assassin’s Creed to date, blazing a trail of silently stabbed corpses in marathon play sessions, hungrily gobbling up every twist and turn in the franchise’s convoluted narrative.
