  • Summary: The visual presentation is impressive and the conspiracy story is intriguing, but the level design is frustrating and the gameplay tedious and uninspired.

  • Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Excellent game.It has only one - and that is saving , because you will always get game saved on last checkpoint.Everything else is for 10+ except graphic which is for 8.5 in my opinion .

  • Summary: Such a outstanding storyline outweighs the shabby graphics and game engine and, for me, makes this a classic. However people must not forget the graphics are like that since this is based on a comic book series. I really enjoyed playing this game and am a little gutted there is no sequel :(. Definitely worth the buy.

PLAYING INSIDE A COMIC-BOOK

  • Summary: This is a unique game, effectively it is the father of both Far Cry and Borderlands . And it can now be enjoyed worry-free. The good plot of Far Cry bears eerie similarities to XIII, not in the tropical island setting but in that the hero wakes up with amnesia on a beach (with the roman numeral XIII tattooed on his arm) and than has to feel his through an obsessed assassin and a pack of ruthless mercenaries.

  • Excerpt: "...and that made me buy XIII when it was brand new & just released. Its a great game, you spend time trying to find out who you are and trying to uncover a conspiracy. The game looks great, its easy to pick up & play and is very nice because every time you encounter a new weapon or gadget you normally get a little chance to test it before rushing off into battle. Except you won't be doing a lot of rushing. It's mainly sneaking, hiding and trying ...
  • Pros: Cool cartoony graphics and addictively difficult gameplay
  • Cons: Checkpoint system can be annoying

  • Excerpt: "...Beach, with nothing but a XIII tattoo on his arm. From then on, more people are appearing in front of him, whether they may be bad or good, gradually his memory gets placed together piece by piece, but throughout that process he cannot fully trust anyone. Since it seems like the whole world is out to get him. Does he even remember what he did to get this sort of treatment? I think that's all the in-game information I can give without giving too ...
  • Pros: Easy controls, good gameplay

  • Excerpt: "This game starts off in a very promising fashion, and has a good plot to keep you interested. The visual sound effects and the graphics are very good on average, and it is a lot of fun to run around wreaking havoc in this comic book world! The problems all centre around the incredibly frustrating save game patterns. The game saves your progress (but not always) at checkpoints. I've been driven to extreme states of frustration and outright anger ...
  • Pros: Nice graphics, good comic book feel
  • Cons: Frustrating
