Welcome to Abstergo Industries! Assassin's Creed Liberation HD is the graphically improved port of the game of the same name for the PlayStation Vita that released in 2012. The game itself is a gaming simulation created by Abstergo Industries to be used as propaganda. Abstergo censored many of the scenes to shine the Templars in a better light over the Assassins. A hacker will show you the way to find the truth that is hidden away in the simulation. In the simulation you play as the female French- American assassin named Aveline de Grandpre during 1765 to 1777 in New Orleans and the Louisiana Bayou. The story takes place during the ending of the French-Indian war and the Spanish have started to gain control over the area. There is a struggle between the two nations for control over the land but most of it comes from underhanded tactics from the Templars. Aveline must face her own life's mysteries as well as those imposed on her from the Assassin order. As she progresses through the game many of these mysteries are solved and bring to to an interesting revelation at the very end of the game. There is a different concept in the game that other Assassin's Creed games don't use called Persona's that alter how you take on enemies and complete missions. It adds a level of depth to the gameplay and for some interesting interactions with the NPC in the game.
In your first playthrough you will naturally obtain the achievements "Sequence 1", "Sequence 2", "Sequence 4", "Sequence 6", "Sequence 8", "Complete Aveline's Story", and "My 1st Dressing Chamber" just for playing through the story. I strongly advise that if you want to get the "Complete all Mission Constraints" achievement, you make sure to get every optional objective in the missions and find every Citizen E for "The Truth" achievement. This will save you a lot of time and reduce the need of replaying missions a second time as well as getting you the true ending of the game. As you play there will be particular missions which will offer great opportunities for some come combat related achievements that the guide will point out for you. The side missions can be completed at any time and do not count to the 100% sync so you can save them for later if you wish. During this playthrough you should try to conserve money as much as possible and play the economic ship mini-game often to get fund ups for the "One is not Enough" achievement. Doing so will greatly reduce how much time this game will take you to complete.
Since there is mission select and you can free roam in this game the clean up is pretty straight forward. You will be searching for any missed collectables, finishing weapon achievements, and killing any remaining Citizen E's you may have missed. You may have completed many side missions while you were playing but any still active on your mini-map should be completed now for their respective achievements. "Persona Collector" items can only be obtained when you are wearing the specific Persona for the given collectable. This will require you to check each zone three times one for each Persona. Using the map in the achievement guide will point you in the right direction and reduce random roaming around the map. The "Collector" is more of the same except the items can be picked up by any Persona. The only issue that may arise is the need to replay 2 Chichen Itza levels for two Mayan Statuettes. The most time consuming achievement is "One is not Enough" it requires you to buy 10 pocket watches from smugglers. You will need a total of 165625 écu to purchase all of them. Saving money and playing the economic ship mini-game will give you much of the money.
Overall it is an enjoyable game a must have for fans of the Assassin's Creed franchise. Aveline is one of the more enjoyable assassin's to play as. She has an interesting back story and has a likeable personality. There is a decent amount of content for a game of it's price point and you won't feel short changed for a lack of things to do. The missions and activities are varied and well paced, which will surely keep you interested and having fun through out your time with the game. One issue with the game is that the graphics are not on par with recent releases such as Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. This is not to say it is an awful looking game, it is not. You also have to consider it is a port from a hand held console and had quite a bit of graphical improvements from that version of the game. I would strongly suggest this game for any players who enjoy action adventure or open world games.
