XIII is a remake of the cult first-person action game that was initially released in 2003. You play as "XIII", a man without an identity, in a solo campaign with numerous twists and turns. Inspired by the eponymous graphic novel, the game features a completely reinvented and unique cel-shading design. In XIII, players can also take part in fierce multi-player fights.
The country remains in a state of shock following the assassination of President Sheridan. You wake up, wounded and with amnesia, on a deserted beach on the east coast. The only clues as to your identity are a tattoo of the number XIII near your collarbone and a locker key. Even though your memory is failing, you discover that you have the reflexes of a highly trained professional fighter. You set off in search of your past, discovering that you played a role in the murder of the President of the United States of America, and revealing the most astounding conspiracy ever hatched in the country's history.

XIII remake is a bare bones attempt or dare I say it cash grab attempt at a remake of this beautfuly epic and over stylised video game.
Honestly in the first 5 minutes of playing this game on an Xbox series X bare in mind the pop in and slow down in game was awful and all over the place.
Enemy A.I doesn't really exist as they run around in circles or barely notice you are their.
Sound design was just as bad if not worse, the sound of the environment would just disappear and the gun sounds are like popcorn in the microwave. Enemys make the worst attempt at sounding realistic like it was filmed in a day. It felt like an early access title to be honest and that could be classed as offensive to some early access games!
It really pains me to say all of this considering how good the original really was and I couldn't bring myself to play anymore than an hour before uninstalling it.
I suppose they got me and my dollar.
I really could not ask you in any other way to hold on to your money, seriously do yourself a favour and steer clear. You'll thank me.
One thing they didn't change however, which they absolutely could and should have, is the weak weapon sound effects. Firing a revolver sounds like a silenced pea shooter, it's dismal. When they've taken liberties with so much of the visuals, updating the sounds would have been nice, though based on how poorly they did the visuals, they might actually have made it worse so this could be a hidden blessing.
The controls feel a couple of generations behind. There's been an attempt to modernize them, but again, not done well. Having to hold sprint on the left stick is a pain, and switching to toggle still has weird behavior. Sprint doesn't stop when you'd expect it to and where it would in any other game. Subtitles are present ingame (with the odd mistake, QA??) but totally missing from all the cutscenes, where the voice audio levels bounce around madly, so good luck trying to stick the plot together. Auto-aim is largely pointless, even on the story mode (easiest) difficulty. In fact it's so unreliable it actually hinders more often than helps. As it so often feels like it's doing nothing you try to aim yourself only for the auto-aim to suddenly do... something... at the last moment and you overshoot. Bizarre.
They've also made the maddening decision to drop the old style of collecting weapons, and go with the Call of Duty method of only having 2 weapons max, and dropping one when you pick up a new one. Feels very at odds with the original design and the game doesn't feel rebalanced for this change, so again a change very much for the worse here.
Most of the cutscenes have been remade with the new models, though bizarrely not the opening cutscene, which is exactly as it was back on the PS2/Gamecube/Xbox just played out on a projector screen instead. Feels incredibly lazy.
This is a bizarre remake. Instead of leaving it as it was and just updating the look (like the Tony Hawk/Crash Bandicoot remakes for example), they've taken a lot of liberties to change things around, but virtually all of them make the game worse. None of them make it feel more modern or better to play. A real missed opportunity. Would genuinely prefer to have a direct port of the original, low-res and all. It has way more charm and the jankyness is forgivable considering it's a 15 year old game. This has no excuse, and they can't argue it's because they wanted to preserve the original when they've made so many poor changes anyway.
Might be worth picking up in a bargain bin next Xmas if you see it for a fiver but at £45 this is daylight robbery, and I got suckered in for nostalgia.
Desde Meridiam han dicho que van a arreglar el juego, y que van a lanzar parches hasta marzo de 2021. Creo que lo ideal es esperar hasta marzo, a ver si consiguen apañar un poco el juego, porque de momento no recomiendo para nada gastar dinero en el.
