Still, Liberation Maiden isn't a full-priced release either, and its thoroughly entertaining content makes its Nintendo eShop download price a bargain--this is easily one of the best downloadable games for the 3DS. While it's certainly a tad short, in every other respect Liberation Maiden feels like a premium game thanks to its sharp, colourful visuals and its supremely compelling gameplay.

Liberation Maiden is an outstanding on-rails shooter worth its $8 price tag. They money gets you only a handful of levels, but they’re very replayable thanks to the game itself just being a lot of fun to play, variable difficulties adding challenge, and a score attack mode giving you a reason to want to play them over and over. Online leaderboards would help, but for such a low-priced download, I’m not too disappointed by them not being included. The core game is very well-crafted and has addictive gameplay mixed in with some impressive graphics that never suffer slowdown and a rocking soundtrack. If you like on-rail shooters, snatch this up as soon as you can.

Liberation Maiden isn't Suda 51's crowning achievement or anything, but it is a simple, fun shooter with a clever offense-defensive mechanic and several coats of glossy finish. If you aren't bothered by the stick and stylus control scheme, you'll enjoy this hearty dose of anime mech action. Certainly, the remaining Guild01 games have a lot to live up to.

Si eres un jugón y te gustan los juegos de naves con mucho ritmo, o si te encanta destrozarlo todo, si te gustan los retos que te obligan a tener cinco ojos para poder esquivar y destrozarlo todo, o si simplemente echas de menos un buen arcade como los de toda la vida, los 7,99 € que cuesta sin duda lo valen. El juego es espectacular, rápido, fresco, divertido y con algunos momentos realmente de primera, y aunque no es una súper producción, seguro que te encantará. A nosotros simplemente nos ha dejado con ganas de más.

Liberation Maiden offers a surprisingly short experience, but if it were much longer the sense of repetition would probably become quite irksome. For all its flashy visuals and instantly gratifying action, this isn't a game that boasts a tremendous amount of variety or depth. Despite these shortcomings, Liberation Maiden remains an enjoyable eShop title with some interesting gameplay mechanics which pay tribute to classic blasters like Sega's Rez. It's just a shame that there's not more to it, but while it lasts, it's good, wholesome fun.
Game Informer Magazine (Oct 31, 2012)
Liberation Maiden, for better or worse, is a brief, fast-paced experience. I found myself laughing at the game’s opening, and even though I never became genuinely engaged in the plight of Shoko and New Japan, I enjoyed taking it all in.

Liberation Maiden ist vor Allem ein Spiel für Highscore-Jäger, die stets versuchen wollen, ihre eigene Bestmarke zu übertreffen. Für alle anderen ist es ein gelungenes und kurzweiliges Actionspiel. Optisch wird das alles sehr ansprechend präsentiert, einen besonderen Höhepunkt stellen vor allem die Anime-Cutscenes dar. Wer auf der Suche nach einem guten Download-Titel für seinen 3DS ist, kann hier jedenfalls nicht viel falsch machen.

It's a rare moment of all-out flair in a game that otherwise tends to be rather understated. The short campaign encourages plenty of replayablity if you're interested in working your way onto the high-score table, but without online leaderboards - as far as I could tell, anyway - you're going to be keeping your bragging to yourself. Play Liberation Maiden because you're after an acceptable arcade shooter, in other words; approach it expecting another wonky blast of Suda51 charm and, President Mech aside, you're going to be a little disappointed.
Edge (Oct 05, 2012)
Released in Japan as one quarter of Level-5’s Guild01 compilation and now on the European 3DS eShop, Suda 51’s Liberation Maiden has a fittingly eccentric narrative setup, sending the young, female president of a futuristic Japan out to do battle in a flying mech suit. What follows, however, is surprisingly restrained: it’s a relatively straightforward airborne thirdperson shooter that carries strong echoes of Q-Games’ Star Fox Command. Suda’s familiar brand of dark, knowing humour is conspicuous by its absence.
Games TM (Oct 26, 2012)
On a purely mechanical level, Liberation Maiden is a pleasure to play, and its score attack nature forces you to master the controls over a number of replays. But for those who like to play through a game from beginning to end, there’s a distinct lack of variety. The missions are basically structured in the same way – kill enemies to locate a hidden power spike, strafe around and destroy that spike once you’ve found it, and then move on to the boss – and there’s nothing resembling the wide variety of scenarios, gameplay styles and set pieces that defined, say, Star Fox 64, which came out 15 years ago.

Liberation Maiden est loin d'être une grande réussite. On attendait un shoot'em up original et on se retrouve finalement avec un titre sans saveur qui ne vous tiendra pas occupé plus de deux heures. Bref, il ne nous reste plus qu'à espérer que les autres jeux issus de Guild 01 rehaussent le niveau.
