Not something the Vita provides or, indeed, this game

Something done numerous times by handheld games

Something done numerous times by handheld games

Something done by numerous times by handheld games and which AC3L stumbles over, if reviews are to be trusted

Like what? And why is that a good thing? Almost every handheld entry into console series in recent memory have had the same features as their console entries. COD, NFS, GTA. Name em.


Not on this scale. And the vita does have nice graphics >:[

Why is it a good thing? Well AC has always involved a very expansive open world. I haven't played the portable GTA games (a series which is traditionally similar to AC in many ways) but this game proves that handhelds are capable of providing a console experience. Most PSP games are only a shadow of their console counterparts.

Now if you wanted to nitpick, yes the PSP and other portable devices are very good these days at puzzle games and racing games and many others. They can certainly match their console counterparts very easily. What the Vita is demonstrating with AC is that handheld titles are closing the gap as far as matching the scale of the blockbuster PS3 titles.

GTA VCS and LCS. COP: The Recruit. Driv3r on the freaking GBA, FFS.

And the vita does have nice graphics >:[


"Nice" is subjective and on that, I disagree. "Console level" is, at present, objective and certainly, the Vita does not have that.

Why is it a good thing? Well AC has always involved a very expansive open world. I haven't played the portable GTA games (a series which is traditionally similar to AC in many ways)


GTA has basically no resemblance to AC except being open world. That's it. And that's all I mean to compare.

but this game proves that handhelds are capable of providing a console experience.


And yet again, you use that term "console experience" where I clearly state that no, graphically, it cannot and gameplay-wise, this was a fact that has ample proof.

Most PSP games are only a shadow of their console counterparts.


How so? I regret that there were no PSP GTA games that paralleled San Andreas in terms of sheer awesomeness, but that fact remains so with even games like GTA4 and pretty much any other open world game out there. On the other hand, LCS and VCS, I actually enjoyed them more than VC. Then we can always bring up the PSP MonHuns, the ports of the PoP games, the God of War games, the MGS games (Peace Walker was just plain stellar) and I could bring up many, many more games of similar nature. No, I'm not talking about visual pizzaz, a department in which the PSP was a lot closer to the PS2 than the Vita is to the PS3, because we've already established the Vita isn't capable of delivering "console quality" graphics (which are pretty pathetic, honestly).

Yeah sure, because pizzle games and racing games don't matter and a game with stuttering framerate and visuals far below par of the PS3 handling a similar scale to a PS360 game is such an accomplishment. Specially since it's not, since games have been handling that scale on handhelds for a while now.

The quality of sound and sound effects in this game is what feels lacking, it makes it feel soulless, and something about it causes me to enjoy it less. It feels about as good as Bloodlines, while looking a whole lot prettier. The combat isn't as fluid or as fun as any of the console titles, and the forced touch controls are a turn off(pick pocketing is ridiculous).

It's still a very good game, graphics are superb, and I haven't had any glitches or bad framerate issues yet, but it still just feels...empty inside.

The graphics are console quality. Like Uncharted Golden abyss was similar to the first uncharted on the ps3, AC3L is similar to the first AC on the ps3.

The scope of this open world is amazing. And pretty much everything you see can be climbed!

This game proves that the Vita could really handle other big popular games without too many limitations. Like Infamous, prototype, and an even better GTA!!

The vita is capable of delivering console quality graphics. Just not high end console quality graphics.

A new god of war game on the vita would be friggn amazing!! If you think the psp one was good imagine what a vita one could achieve!!

No and even if it was, this was in the notorious "nobody can figure it out" phase of the PS3.

AC3L is similar to the first AC on the ps3


No

The scope of this open world is amazing.


No. See: aforementioned open world games.

And pretty much everything you see can be climbed!


So could everything in games like Spiderman 2, which had a way, WAY bigger scale than any AC by cirtue of just being set in New York.

How does it prove that? Do you mean graphically or gameplay-wise? See the above. And I'm not sure you understand that being able to "handle" a game doesn't really mean you're going to get it, or are you forgetting the "atrocious sales and perilous financial future" part?

The vita is capable of delivering console quality graphics. Just not high end console quality graphics.


No.

Not console-quality, that's for sure.

This is the only assassins creed I've ever played, and I like it alot. Much better than gravity rush. There are alot of glitches though, but none are huge, for me Atleast. I would give it 8/10.

@LOL

I do believe that the graphics of ACL and Uncharted GA were are console quality. But if we cant agree on that , then perhaps ill just say that the games have nice graphics for a handheld.

Have you even seen the map in AC3L? Its very large. You get new Orleans and the swamps! Just bc other games have open world does not mean that this game should not be praised for it bc it does it great !! Are you sure that spiderman 2 had a bigger map then AC3L and did it have good graphics along with active NPC's?
