XIII (GC)

ccgr.org
7 August 2004
  • Excerpt: Many shooters try and perfect a formula that was introduced with Wolfenstein 3D and Doom, both by early industry innovator id. XIII is one of the games that manages to get the system down pat, while still innovating on a genre bogged down by too many run-and-gun clones, drenched in blood and flying body parts. Yes, XIII is profane, it?s violent, and it?s bloody; however, it?s also one of the most original and compelling plot driven shooters to come along since Eidos?

  • Excerpt: A few concessions have been made for the move to video game form. Gone is the crusty old fisherman: Instead, XIII is found on the surf by a swimsuit clad female lifeguard. The changes (both small and large) found in the game mean that fans of the series and new comers can enjoy this release with an equal feeling of freshness.

XIII

  • Conclusion: Just den glädjen – som funnits runt om och i mig de senaste dagarna – förvandlades på ett ögonblick till djävulskt hat mot UBI Soft. Jag ville se deras huvudkontor med anställda brinna i helvetet och samtidigt höra mitt mörka ondskefulla hatskratt eka. Allting kändes precis lika tomt och misslyckat som den där gången då jag blev av med oskulden.

  • Conclusion: Novateur dans sa réalisation, XIII garde un classicisme certain qui lui apporte un capital fun quasi-illimité. Je n’avais réellement pas vu ça depuis longtemps et pour moi, XIII est le meilleur FPS réalisé à ce jour.
  • Pros: Réalisation, Ambiance, Classique mais classieux
  • Cons: Quelques trucs trop « carrés »…

XIII, le test

Nintendo
1 January 2004
  • Summary: On pouvait lire à propos de XIII "le nouveau Goldeneye!". Même s’il n’est pas parfait, on notera avant tout ses magnifiques graphismes (qui jusqu'alors n'avaient pas été utilisés pour ce type de jeu), sa maniabilité intuitive et surtout son scénario digne d'une grosse production Hollywoodienne. XIII a su sortir du lot comme l’a fait à son époque le jeu de Rare. XIII est donc un jeu quasiment indispensable pour les lecteurs de la BD ou pour les fans de FPS.
