XIII (GC)

ccgr.org
29 April 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...

  • 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...

23 December 2003
  • Summary: Unless you have been living in a small hole in Iraq for the last few months you will know that XIII is a cel-shaded shooter from the lovely people at Ubi Soft. Whilst the title had a massive impact at the start of the year all has gone a bit muted as the title finds itself hidden under numerous...

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.

  • Conclusion: Pour finir parlons du mode multijoueur, une inscription rapide sur le gameservice d’Ubi Soft vous permettra d’accéder aux serveurs du jeu. Les modes de jeu proposés à la base ne sont pas vraiment palpitants et n’offrent qu’assez peu d’intérêt par rapport à la concurrence.
  • Pros: Les graphismes originaux, L’utilisation des cases et des onomatopées, La base, une bonne histoire, Le mix infiltration/action, Un jeu bien fini
  • Cons: La linéarité du jeu, Le multi pour l’instant un peu terne, Un gameplay très classique

  • Conclusion: Al met al is XIII een doorsnee eerste persoon schietspel, dat echter dankzij de interessante verhaallijn, aparte sfeer en stijlvolle vormgeving een zeer degelijk spel is geworden.
  • Pros: Verhaal, Visuele stijl
  • Cons: Kunstmatige intelligentie, Omgevingen
