Is this game worth playing?

29 posts in this topic

I know this game came out long time ago,but I was wondering right now if the game is worth buying.

I'm a Assassin's Creed fan and the game it's kinda cheap( 20€ on the PSstore) but I would love to hear someone else's opinion on the matter to avoid wasting money.

Thanks :)

I enjoyed this game. It had a rather... forgettable story, but so do most Assassin's Creed games imo, but it had its moments, and the memories in Mexico were a lot of fun to play. It has annoying collectibles and a post-game grind, but it doesn't take long and is a rather easy platinum (if that matters to you).

 

I would recommend.

Game is a quick plat for ps3. But even with that I still can't force myself to sit and play either version of this abortion. This is not a true assassins creed title and it will not be enjoyable in the slightest. Liberation and liberation hd have been on my backlog since release, and who knows if I will ever finish them. So no, it's not worth playing unless you're out for an easy plat.

It's not worth €20, get it when it's on sale for €5-€10. There is hardly any story, the gameplay is a copy-paste from AC3, and the game is a collectible grindfest. Didn't encounter any glitches on the HD version.

I would not recommend it unless you are paying 5-10 euros. In my opnion the only game in the series worse than AC3

Thanks for the replies so far. I should probably wait for a price drop

The only thing I missed was the present.

There is not a single present sequence, so, yes its not AC after all. In my opinion these parts are important. But many people wont understand that.

Discussed some days ago in an german forum and got told how stupid I am because Im the only one in the whole forum that likes the presentstuff.

... But after looking in some profiles, I also was the only one there playing AC since the first game. ;) So, they just hate it because they dont understand it... as usual... I cant understand why people are always hating stuff they dont know. This is way too paradox for me. xD

 

And the maps are way too small. The city feels on PS3 like... Forli... okay, bigger than Forli. But not much. :P

But in all other aspects it was easier and less boring than AC2.

Yes, back then AC2 was great, but as I replayed it on PS3 (played 1, 2, BH and Rev on XBox) some months ago, it felt kinda meh...

I really love the gameplay of BlackFlag and Rogue. These two are my favourites so far. Rogue is awesome and everyone who likes AC should play it, also it closes some plotholes AC3 left. Cant say something about Unity because I havnt played it yet and Im not joining the paradox-party. xD Seriously, I dont like it when people are talking... hating about stuff they dont know.

 

Ahh, there is something that makes Liberation unique. You can dress as Assassins, as Slave, as Lady and as... cant remember. As Assassin you are always at wantedlevel2. As Slave you can hide pretty good in the openworld (when other slaves or crate you can carry are around) and you have your assassins-skills, but your armory is limited. As Lady you cant use your assassinsskills but you have an OP umbrella that can shoot and stuff. Also you have new interactions, because when you are a lady, nobody cares about your skincolor (see? SEE?! Humans... paradox... doublestandards). Cant remember about the fourth role.

Dunno, for 20€ or whatever it had cost back then it is more than okay. :) Its not a standalone DLC or something like that. If you think the price for AC2 was fair back then, then 20€ for Liberation is fair too. :P

this game has its moments. heavy emphasis on the word moments. the whip is a cool weapon though.

I love the AC franchise, and while I wasn't the biggest fan of some of the later titles, this is still worth playing if for nothing else but the ending.  It's not epic by any means, but if you like the story as it's being laid out, this adds to it.  I won't say more, but I repeat, it is not epic.  AC2 ending was epic, this is not, lol.

 

Anyway, I got the game for $8 on a PS Store sale, and just FYI the AC franchise will get a weeklong Spring Fever sale March 17-23 (http://blog.us.playstation.com/2015/02/26/spring-fever-2015-8-weeks-8-new-ps4-games-ps-plus-discounts/), so I highly recommend you wait until then and get the game at a discount.  For $5-10 bucks, its worth a playthrough (or in my case, a plat).  I will back-up some of the above comments that as far as AC games go, it does have some minor technical issues, but nothing that stopped me from completing it.  Also, I played on PS3, not Vita (to avoid the terrible online experience).

I'm European so unfortunately I can't use those sales.Maybe I should wait for a sale like that,at least until I really wanna play the game

I played the original version on my Vita and I loved it. It was very exciting playing through the story and I really admire the main character, Aveline. I haven't gathered enough patience yet to go for the platinum, but I loved the story, so I would recommend it.

Finally bought the game during the summer sale.I'm about halfway through the story and I'm enjoying it so far.Since it's a port from a Vita game the world is really smaller,but overall it's not that bad.Not even close to other AC games,but still good.

just picked this up for $5 on this weeks psn sale. it's gotta be the worst of the assassin's creed series, but for that low a price it's still worth it

I just finished this game and if you want to buy it and you can do it for less than 6€ you definitely should. It's not the best game from Assassin's Creed Universe but it's easy and pleasant. Sure there are some bugs and problems but if I got platinum after 5 days, 4 hours, 32 minutes and believe me I'm not a Trophy Hunter at all you can do it faster if you want. It is worth it if you pay less than 6€.

I loved it on Vita and more on PS3, PS3 fixes some of the problems the original version on Vita had. And the trophies are less ridiculous since there's no crappy online to do.

Totally agree with you. The Vita had those stupid online trophies but the PS3 platinum was an easy but enjoyable game.....for me at least. I know some gamers didn't enjoy it but I certainly did.

I thought it was a decent game but the story was a bit choppy and there were a handful of graphical glitches.

Bought it for 5 bucks and still regret it, lol. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone except die-hard fans of the franchise, and trophy hunters.

It's pure shit. If i had to describe it in one word, it would be "torture". And believe it or not, i'm actually quite fan of AC franchise.

Being the only AC game I've played aside from Brotherhood (and the mobile games), I think it's pretty decent.

I Platinumed the vita versions, but is by far the worst game I've played on Vita, it's actually the only Assassins creed game that I've played that I haven't enjoyed.
