XIII was a very decent game. I nice change in style with graphics and display. However, the only hang-up I have with the game is that when needing to use stealth, you get noticed incredibly easy, having to restart that section of the level all over again. More often then not, the patrolling soldiers/enemies spot you even if you're just barely peeking around a corner. Some would argue that it's realism, but this is a game, meant to be fun, not too frustrating to play.

I bought this game not too long after it was released, and it is one of my favorite fist person shooters. The storyline is very well written out and keeps interesting. It's also a good length as well, not too short, or not too long. It doesn't have much replay value, but the story mode is just fun to replay numerous times. The multi-player is solid as well, as the difficulty of the bots is pretty customizable (assuming you don't have any friends to play with, or a multi tap to play with up to 4 people). The levels and weapons are fun too. The cel-shaded graphics are a nice touch, as is the onomatopoeia (it gives it the ultimate comic book feel). overall the graphics aren't amazing, but they are nowhere near bad. I have no real complaints about this game, I highly recommend it to any first person shooter fans.
