This game looks and feels great on a handheld device and it truly shows off the capabilities of of the PlayStation Vita. It's a miniature version of a console standard Assassin's Creed packed full of gameplay and story.

The story itself is mediocre. Aveline is the first female lead in the franchise and her story felt weak. Often the game forces the player to wear a certain persona (lady, assassin, slave) rather than letting the player choose how to go about a mission.

This is displayed in quirky little puzzles that require the rear view camera to be pointed at a bright light to unveil a secret message. More often than not, this function did not work, even when it was pointed at the brightest light.

Another frustrating puzzle occurred during the ball maze that forced the gamer to tilt the Vita in a manner that would move the ball to the center of the maze. The controls felt clunky and the ball rarely moved the direction it was suppose to. Upon setting the Vita on a flat surface, the ball continued to move by itself.

The game also suffers from a glitch that refuses to load the player's saved game. I was forced to restart twice.

Overall experience was fun, but it was overshadowed by t
