XIII has a lengthy one player mode. There are 12 levels, connected by a good story, although the plot is far from original. This can get difficult, especially because enemies always hit you.
XIII has split-screen multiplayer for up to four players. There are 30 maps, which support capture the flag, deathmatch, and team deathmatch. There is no lag at all.
XIII is one of the best FPSs on the market. As for which version is better, they all have exclusive content. The PS2 version has an exclusive multiplayer mode, but it isn't very fun. It is like deathmatch, but you have to only kill certain players. The Xbox version has 8 players online, and voice chat. The Gamecube version is the only one that has split-screen multiplayer.
Overall, XIII is a must buy.
First off Visualy the game looks terrific, no FPS has ever done what XIII has done and that is add cell shaded visuals to the game and the game works very well, something I liked was how the characters were in cellshaded visuals while the backround was completley 2d er 3d(I forgot!). I wouldn't say they're jaw dropping but the games visuals are A+ in my book and very original I must say. Now the sound is this game is one of my favorites, and each song played in a level gos so well with it, it has this 70s like crime beat with funk in it. Not only is the music good but the voice acting is great as well! ADAM WEST, c'mon guys the original batman! The gameplay in the game plays like any other FPS but something not many FPS have are STEALTH missions which this game has aswell as the ability to pick objects up. When you're close to an enemy and you're sneaking behind them with a shovel or anything you have in your hand you can bash them over the head with out having other gaurds hear it.Read more ›
The story is refined and great, opening questions about conspiracy theories, even though there are some similarities to the Kennedy brothers. Suffice to say, there are enough plot twists here to keep anyone, even someone weaned on The X-Files, 24, and Alias swooning with the amount of narrative twists and turns. The story is also incorporated nicely into the game play, with cinematic-style flashback scenes that can be played through, with a film grain filter over the visuals.
The sound is also very well done, with stellar performances from David Duchovney, Eve, and Adam West; in the same way, guns and the respective sound effects are very good, and are immersive, though completely overblown, which is somehow appropriate for a game based on a French graphic novel.
Everything about this game shines with polish--it would be a mistake to not pick it up if you are of age and can handle a mature, complex story with difficult bosses and well-thought-out levels.
I bought this game with mixed feelings about it, especially given that I had recently played pure waste such as Die Hard: Vendetta. But this game is very well done, and is very enjoyable, while it lasts. It's short, but the minute I finished it the first time, I went back and played through it again, and then once more, just because I liked it so much. Multiplayer isn't as great, but it's still good, despite the obvious lack of attention to this mode. Sure, it isn't a Halo-calibur multiplay mode, but some of the modes in there rule, and had my friends and I screaming with laughter just because it was so fun.
Anyway, buy this game, you won't regret it.

XIII is a somewhat rare first person shooter(1. because it's on the gamecube, 2. because it's cell shaded) that sort of flew under the radar. Read morePublished on May 14, 2009 by Rob
