This demo for XIII lets you play two levels: The Beach and the Military base.

Overview:

The President of the United States of America has been assassinated.

You wake up on a desolate strip of New England beach. The near-fatal impact of a bullet has left your head pounding, and your memory erased. What's more, the number "XIII" has been mysteriously tattooed on your chest, while your pocket holds a key to a New York City bank box. Head swimming in amnesia, you struggle to your feet only to encounter more assailants intent on finishing the job. To your shock, you handle the hitmen with the killing skills of a professional - before heading to the bank in search of any shred of information about your lost identity and your involvement in the President's murder.

What lies ahead is a deadly quest not only into your shadowy past, but America's darkest corridors of power

Features:

*The Ultimate Conspiracy. Unravel a whirling conspiracy plot where your identity, the President's assassination, and the future of America are shrouded in mystery.

*Unique Visual Style. Graphic novel presentation, flashback graphics, and pop-up windows create a groundbreaking entry into the genre. XIII marshals the power of Unreal™ II technology and unique comic book visual styles.

*Groundbreaking Gameplay. Experience a wide variety of gameplay - cunning use of human shields, silent weapons, and XIII's internal "sixth sense" that detects approaching enemies. To survive, you'll master techniques ranging from covert infiltration to heavy combat as you battle sinister conspiratorial forces.

*A Deadly Arsenal of Weapons. Handle a dizzying array of weapons, ranging from silent crossbows to precision sniper rifles, to furious automatic weapons, to chairs, bottles, ashtrays, shovels, and even enemy soldiers' bodies.

*A New Kind of Multiplayer. Square off against other PlayStation®2, Xbox™, and PC players in innovative multiplayer modes such as Barfight and the cooperative Cover Me, along with classic modes such as Capture the Flag and Deathmatch.

XIII Demo

I have downloaded the demo a couple of days ago and its not very fun, there are 2 levels in totaly diffrent places, I think both of them are too hard personaly and im not a bad gamer. The graphics are medium, you dont have any controle over them in the demo except the resolution (i think). The game does sligltly look like comic like when playing but its still a little retarded and the AI isnt that smart, if they see you they will run strait for you, they often get stuck in doors aswell (2nd level, 1st room) and you can get stuck in rooms if there is only one way out.You can do some fun things like pick up chairs and bottles and throw them, but I dont know how this could be usfull against a enemy ai that happen to have full amour and a gun (m4a1 type thing), considering they are hard enough to take down with weapons.The contres have to be changed before you play, "c = crouch = bad" the physics in this game are standerd half-life like, nothing special (that i can see) and the shadows look slightly dodgy, not the ones under the people but the ones on the people, like the players hand and gun.I was hoping for somthing better personaly but who knows, maby the demo is just not the best IMO.

What a f**king stupid looking game this is. It might not look quite a pathetic as that japanese amination shit but it is still little more than a waste of my time.

XIII Demo

what is cat talking about, trust me folks this is great game, even the demo lets you do a lot of cool stuff.The graphics are very good, maybe you havn't noticed that this is a cell-shaded-shooter. The details aren't supposed to quite as flushed out as in other games like doom 3 or other big namers. Remember this is supposed to be in a comic book style, and I think they recreated it perfectly.Based on the demo alone, I would get this game, however, I always have to look at a dozen or so reviews. (and oh yea, you can change the default controls just like any other game. C was crouch in many many good games, dark forces to just to name one, and that happened to be a really good game).

XIII Demo

oh yeah, I forgot to add stuff. The ai is supposed to be hard, because like any human, if they see you they will shoot. Solution, don't get seen. You can sneak in this game by crouching. I have taken out many enemies with chairs and bottles and it is quite satisfying. (note: the grappling hook is just plain cool) I also disagree with the reference to halflife. Have you played it recently? The graphics for today's standards are horrible (no offense tried and true HL lovers). You can't compare this game anyways to halflife because cell shading, and even so it looks way more detailed and a lot better in this comic book form. Obviously you aren't a very skilled gamer to be having so many issues with "overly hard AI." Don't worry though, I'm sure there will be a difficultiness for the mentally challenged.

XIII Demo

I cant get to play it. during installation they ask for the directory with the notepad .I directed it to the note pad but it still wont finish install.Can anyone help...

XIII Demo

Hmmm not so sure about this game, yeah it is cell shaded, but I still think the graphics are fairly poor it reminded me a lot of RtCW with the badly textured items.However I did think the bit with the boats and water was cool, the death scenes where well done, and I like the fact that head shots take into account where you shoot them.On the flip side the AI is fairly poor. Yes some badies will take note of bodies but not all, and they do behave like "typical" comic book goons, but hey so did the monsters in Doom.

XIII Demo

When installing this game you do now have to direct it to notepad, (assuming this is the same file at ausgamers.com) all you have to do is open the .zip file than double click on the setup icon and it will install just like any other program.""The ai is supposed to be hard, because like any human, if they see you they will shoot.""Not alwaise, and a human would call for back up and hide behind cover. (Half-Life anyone?) Any way, I dont mean the AI is "hard" just because they shoot you, I think its also because they are hard to take down, they should atleast get knocked back when you shoot them.And I NEVER compaired the graphics with XIII and Half-Life compared the physics between them both and I said that they were about the same.

XIII Demo

This game IS really good. Most are too critical nowadays to enjoy what a game has to offer. XIII is well cool and has a good innovative twist (aesthetically at least). This will entertain action loving fps fans all you ghost recon fans go eat a d**k you simulation freak. Arcade rules. Anyway yeah get this!

XIII Demo

Nowdays games are cheaply made, it is hard to find a realy polished one out of the many that are released. I think attention to detail is what most games these days are missing, its the little things that come around in the end. I think a great game for a long time was MOH:AA, that had great detail and that just dosnt mean graphics (witch are good for today) there were many little nifty features in it that wernt in other games because the developers were too lazy or needed to get the game out soon as possible thus rushing it. How bout when you shot a box in MOH:AA, it would wobble, or if you shot a barell with oil in it, you would see the oil pour out and stop at the point the hole was, yeh shure it had no serious effect on the game play or the story line, but it was fun to play with.

The game is good allright, but i'm having serious problems with the mouse look... it twists the screen all by it self. although it's only happening with higher resolution than 800x600... but it looks nice. very nice.
