5.0 out of 5 stars An Accidental surprise March 6, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I just happend to download this demo one day because i was bored just to try it out. I xecpected to find a average game at best but came out amazed. This is truly impressive. This game has no campaign. The whole game is based on missions. Each mission has a different objective that you must go through that is anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes long. Missions are your basic survive mission. Then there are speed missions where you clear the area out as fast as possible. Then there are stealth mission. Ive never really been that big a fan on stealth but this game in those particular missions make it work. You can get up to 5 stars per mission depending on how well you play the mission. Once you get x amount of stars there are bonus missions where you have to take down a boss. And the missions as you go through get harder. The controls work great and it is easy to fire from the hip or you can touch the screen to zoom through your weapon. Tapping the screen to zoom is remarkably easy. The game as you would expect has challenges online that change quiet often. The graphics are very good. Cant say enough about the great game.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite launch title March 6, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Since the Vita was released, I've been looking for a game that made it worth the purchase. I'm not a big fan of the Uncharted series and there aren't any good RPGs out for it yet, so I was pleased when the demo of this game was finally released. Upon completing the demo, I immediately purchased this game. The controls are a little sensitive out of the box, but I was able to customize them easily. If you are looking for a run and gun shooter, this isn't it. You have to use stealth sort of like Gears of War. But if you're looking for a great Vita experience and aren't looking for Uncharted, you should buy this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Game - Like SOCOM lite March 7, 2012
By Matt
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have played about 1/3 of this game. There are a total of 36 main missions that are pretty short which is good. THe game is presented similar to Angry Birds or Cut the Rope...it has all 36 missions presented in a grid and you move through the missions starting from 1 and open up more. Every time I finish one I want to start another. SO far the missions are all short, which is nice because I know I can jump in and jump out quickly. Some missions I like a lot and have replayed like 10 times, others I played once and may or may not play them again. The graphics are nice, I think they could be a bit better, but this is a launch window game. The game play is the similar to SOCOM games (made by the same developer)...so I was able to pick up and play very quickly. Although it did take some time to get used to the Vitas tiny analog sticks...but once I did they work perfectly. There are leaderboards that compare your score to the rest of the world which is pretty cool. Plus 2-player co-op, but I have tried that, yet. All in all this is a great game, perfect for the Vita...I want more games like this that take the presentation of the best mobile iOS/Android games while keeping the AAA gameplay. Oh ya...I wish the crosshair could be moved with the gyroscope, like in Uncharted: Golden Abyss...that would put this over the top.

5.0 out of 5 stars High Replay Value March 8, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I like shooting games, and was excited about seeing a console-caliber military style shooting game on a portable. After playing through half of the missions, it didn't disappoint! The two analog sticks makes playing the game like on regular console, although I'm a bit slow to touch the screen to go over the barricade or toggling zoom of the gun's target scope. The graphics are impressive on a small screen. I'm really surprised to see smoke or fog moving in open areas. That's a testament to including advanced software logic, as well as such powerful portable console. The sound is very good. With a very good headset, I can hear solders talking and whispering (softly) on one or the other ear.

There are 36 missions that will get unlocked in sequence when previous mission is completed. Sometimes other missions will get unlocked as well. The maps get re-used for different missions. Personal score is compared to those in the area, region, and global. For each mission I was encouraged to replay, get better, and move on to next level within the mission. It suggests best personnel for each mission, but I'm free to choose the character I want. The length of each mission is short enough where I can, at any time, take out Vita to play a bit. It's a nice alternative to the simple games found on smartphones (iPhone, Android). So to me it has high replay value on a day-to-day basis.

The online co-op allows me to either join in or create a public/private co-op, but I haven't had a chance to try. Same with high value targets. Will update this review when I spend sufficient time with them.

But I really like the daily challenge. It's truly challenging! So challenging that I find I spend more time playing the daily challenge then playing the missions! As long as I don't leave the challenge, I can keep trying. This adds more frequent play time on the daily basis! I think it's an awesome addition and will keep me interested in playing Unit 13 on daily basis.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unit 13 June 29, 2012
By Kyle
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Unit 13 is a tactical 3rd-person shooter by the Socom developers, Zipper Interactive. Unit 13 is one of the first games out of the gate that takes advantage of the Vita's duel analog stick. Their isn't really a epic story to partake in Unit 13. The game focuses on fast paced missions that are perfect for a quick break or a ride on the bus.

The gameplay in Unit 13 is your standard 3rd-person shooter affair. Your character is in the center of the screen, you can over the shoulder aim, aim down your sights, melee, switch your weapons, and there is a cover system. The Vita's duel analog sticks feel great in Unit 13. I had no problem aiming at enemies. The cover system could some work though. It doesn't feel smooth, kinda clunky. (I also don't like how you can't slide to another piece of cover without standing up and moving over to it, leaving you vulnerable to attacks.). Zipper did a great job though. They brought a feel of a console military shooter to the palm of your hand pretty well.

The touch screen does get used during gameplay and navigating the menus too. You can reload and use items with a press of the onscreen buttons. They don't hinder with the gameplay at all, the touch functions feel very natural.

The game looks good graphically. It isn't no Uncharted but it's still a very good looking game by portable standards. It looks nice but the environments can get repetitive by the way they look. There is no variety in the level. Your either in a dusty, sandy, town, a warehouse, or a base.
There are 6 different operatives that you can choose to play as. They each have their own perks. The one operative is good at sniping and while a other operative is good at close range combat for example.
