Okay, now before I start this I just want to clarify I AM NOT SAYING I'M AN AMAZING CRITIC OR THAT MY TASTE IS BETTER.
I recently played through Assassins Creed III: Liberation, and I noticed none of the technical problems that many critics complained of. The game never slowed to a crawl, sure it stuttered but that was only when I WAS REALLY REALLY LOOKING FOR IT. As for bland textures? bland textures? did they look at everything else! This game is visually unlike anything I have ever seen on a handheld console. It's really quite amazing. There were times when I would just pan the camera around and think to myself what a wonderfu......oh no wait sorry.... that this could easily be a PS3 game (lowish end I admit)
As for the story, well I can understand their remarks, it's not so much disjointed and perhaps 'unjointed' (especially in the beginning). However, it didn't bother me. I was having far to good of a time to care, and even when I did go "wait...but that was like nothing with that thing before....ummm" I didn't actually care as...you guessed it...I was having too much of a good time.
I've seen this problem with other titles. I have found reviews to be so so picky, sometimes highliting 'problems' that I don't even notice. I understand that these reviews are made by professionals but surely they have the same eyes as me! I would reccomend ACL to a friend without a doubt as, for me, it is a really great game! Ubisoft have made an amazing game, to make it on a portable is simply an engineering feat.
I just wanted to know if anyone else has had similar experiences as this?
Anyways...speaking of disjointed (as well as a grammatical abomination)....this rant is getting long. I understand that this post may need to be moved to the Vita section but as it is both a commentary on the game and on general reviews I thought it would be okay to leave it here.
