    jp's Assassin's Creed III: Liberation (VITA)

    [March 24, 2017 02:27:45 PM]
    I hadn't played this in months. Almost a year, perhaps? I booted it up the other day, I couldn't remember how to play it at all (not for traversing the world, but for combat) and, after too many failed attempts at a mission I realized that, well...I just wasn't up for it anymore. There was no easy way to for me to practice/relearn either (I couldn't even pull up a list of all the moves and stuff).

    That being said, I do remember a bit of frustration with combat and my general lack of understanding of what to press, when, and how. I guess I was able to fumble through before but not anymore?

    I have a really positive bias towards this game - mostly because of how little love it's received for it's title character! However, I'm about 2 hrs (maybe less?) in and I'm mostly disappointed...

    a. I've had two technical issues that have required I restart the game. They both happened quite close to each other in terms of time - which made things more frustrating. The first one seems like a silly oversight. I was playing with "the lady", who is not allowed to climb, in an area by the docks. I managed to fall in the water and was simply unable to climb out (this despite the UI saying press x to climb, that only resulted in diving underwater). The second problem was when I entered a shop at the same time as a band of thugs started pestering. As soon as I left the shop, the character got into the "I'm in attack mode" pose which weirdly enough, shunted her into a foyer of sorts behind the door of the shop. There was no way to get out. I also got lost because I misunderstood an element on the map. I was supposed to find a warehouse but the map icon was "memory start" or something like that. I assumed that it referred to the location where I started, and so I spent about 45 minutes wandering around like a fool.

    b. AFAIK, there is not modern day character in this AC, which I think is somewhat unusual? I think the fiction is that the player is the modern day character and that you're basically re-living someone else's memories (sort of like the movie "Strange Days"). It's a neat fiction and they treat the game companies (Abstergo) as real companies - they are even part of the opening credits.

    c. Although (so far) you only control one character, there are (at least) three different disguises you can wear. They act sort of like character classes. The lady can charm people but can't climb, the slave can climb and sneak around but can't...charm, and the third I think is the really good fighter character. I'm not sure since I haven't unlocked that costume although it appears in the UI.

    d. Each of the disguises are interlinked in a way I think is pretty cool. If you kill people with the lady, her notoriety goes up (and presumably bad things happen when it gets too high). You can reduce it by killing witnesses. However, you can kill witnesses when wearing any disguise! For the slave costume you need to tear down wanted posters. I have no idea about the third class.

    So far I'm enjoying it a bit - not too much because, for me at least, the slave character is the most fun (all the climbing and acrobatics), but I've mostly had to play as the lady - who just sort of walks around....
