Video Game Review: Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation Remastered

Details: Played about five hours before giving up. Came bundled together with Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Season Pass. Official site is https://www.ubisoft.com/en-us/game/assassins-creed-3-remastered/

Score: 5.6/10

I really wanted to like this game. I forced myself to play through it until I just couldn’t take it anymore. Assassin’s Creed Liberation Remastered may have better textures, but it pains the eyes and mind with it’s lackluster world and boring gameplay.

Liberation takes place in New Orleans in about the 1770’s. You play Aveline, a French-African Assassin fighting the Templars. Aveline was born to a slave yet adopted by a woman of high society. Accordingly, Aveline possesses the ability to blend in both in the lower and higher classes.

Visually, the game is pretty bad. You need to remember that this game originally came out on the PS Vita, which had the graphical power of a Playstation 2. That’s very little compared to today’s standards. That means that you don’t get the sweeping locations where you get see distant structures and objects. The developers had to save memory. That means that New Orleans is essentially constructed as a series of corridors. An open world game relies heavily on its world and the world in this game is crap.

Gameplay is horrendous as well. Most missions are simplistic and boring. The gameplay is an even further simplified version of the gameplay from Assassin’s Creed III. The missions are short, overly simplistic, and boring. You go somewhere, kill a dude, or simply just arrive somewhere. What’s interesting is that sometimes, the game forces you to perform assassination while not getting caught. This would be fine if the game handled well, but the controls are clunky and make playing the game feel like a chore.

Strangely enough, the music is decent despite everything else in this game being so lousy. The voice acting is expectedly flat, especially that of the protagonist’s.

Overall, this was a crap game. I wanted to play this game mostly for story reasons, but in the portion I played, the story stayed dull the entire time. Gameplay was also bad and severely outdated.Don’t bother wasting your time on this crap game. Updated textures couldn’t even save it.

Score: 5.6/10
