Incessantly annoying game

  • Summary: XIII may not have the most original plot, but it is intriguing and at times entertaining. Overall, it's a game that's quite fun to play at times and is worth a single playthrough. After that, though, it's basically worthless. The overwhelming annoyances of it will for some, like me, outweigh the positives (such as its superior voice acting and beautiful cel-shaded graphics). Rather than writing a review, I'm going to just list them.

XIII...cel shaded graphics, great multiplayer and very addictive

Eisbreche..., Ciao
20 June 2009
  • Excerpt: XIII has your character waking up on a beach, injured and, attempting to make sense of events as he has amnesia. This First Person Shooter (FPS) does not break any ground in terms of gameplay or storyline, however what it does it pulls off remarkably well and is a very fun game in its own right. Graphics The very first thing the player will notice and the issue that players will either love or hate are the unique graphics.
  • Pros: Great sound effects, Amazing multiplayer, Unmatchable longevity, Graphics will appeal to some
  • Cons: The graphics will put some people off, Story mode can be complete rather quickly

XIII...why only part 1?

  • Summary: I absolutly love first person shooters. Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Turok of old. Also there is a lot to be said for games involving stealth and tactics such a Metal Gear and Splinter Cell. XIII offers a nice balance of both these styles of gameplay from a first person perspective. Although not necessarily original in plot (a top filed agent who investigates a terroist organisation and subsequently looses his memory - Jason Bourne anyone?

very good game

  • Summary: As a master of Golden eye, this game is exactly what you would have expected the other Bond titles to be like. Its a little hard to get to grips with and can be taking on the brain in places. I am only on the 3rd mission as it stands because my memory card died and i lost all my saved games ( :( ). As I said, if you played golden eye, youll love this. I particularly enjoy taking hostages. Its that aspect of taking the whole anti-hero stance to get what you want.

The game's loveliness outweighs its flaws

  • Summary: *Spoiler Free Review* "Loading..." First impressions are everything. You can have a quick scan of the box art whilst your waiting; engrossing, comic, colourful... everything is set to be consummate. It has loaded. So then... first impressions. The menus and the set up system are gorgeous. Original designs and artwork that are so very very lush to view. And the game proceeds this way. It's beautiful, and there are no shortcomings in the art design.

XIII

  • Summary: A game who's name is an un-lucky number, thankfully that's the only thing that is bad. Graphics Cel shaded and FPS shouldn't be used in the same sentence, but here it works well. The games artistically styled like a comic book, but don't be fooled by its appearance. Sound Great, weapons sound as they should and peoples voices aren't overdone. Gameplay Somewhat lengthy loading times, but its worth the wait.

A large chunk of cell shaded history in the making

E. B. Q. Macrae, amazon.co.uk
6 January 2004
  • Summary: XIII is, without a doubt, one of the best FPS's of the year. As the game starts, you find yourself awake on a beach, with the FBI claiming that you shot the president, and they certainly have enough evidence to convict you. But you have had a sudden burst of Amnesia, and you cannot remember anything, not even your name. All you have is the number 'XIII' tattooed onto your chest.

XIII

  • Summary: If you are a fan of the FPS genre then you will love this game. The controls seem to be too twitchy to start with, but this does not get in the way for long and the auto - aim is fairly generous. The story line is gripping and the way it unravels itself through the game will ensure players are hooked right up to the end. The graphical style works very well, and there are some very clever ideas implemented with the comic book style box-outs.

A graphic novel comes to life...

Stephen Baker "iota uk", amazon.co.uk
6 December 2003
  • Summary: The first thing that will strike you about this game is the superb comic strip style of the visuals. The second thing is that you don't know what's going on. Every level is preceded by a comic strip narrative setting the scene and drip feeding you details about your situation. At the start, all you know is that the president has been assassinated (Kennedy sty-lee), you've lost your memory and people are determined to see you dead. And that's it.
