    I loved the Demo before this update (on G5, 3,5GB)... Let's see if...
    OK! I gave Playability 4 stars, not 5 'coz enemies sometimes were getting half corps through the walls. Wait! ...before I got my extra GBs! So, you can read five stars if you ask me now.

    I am very disappointed. I thought the update would also fix the sound problem: Sounds stutters very frequently, which is very annoying. The lack of a Quicksave capability is also very frustrating. Wait until they fix those major flaws before you buy this game!

    I can see why the demo would hurt this game's sales. I played the two levels that were part of the demo, and it's really kind of sad. The game runs fast enough (it better, I have a Radeon 9800! Owners of lesser cards, beware), but the gameplay is pretty bad. Maybe I'm just spoiled on Call Of Duty, but there are just a lot of things I dislike about the game itself. There's no way of precisely aiming for distance shots. Enemies take hit after hit after hit before going down - they seem to have a higher pain tolerance than your own character. Ammo is scarce (which is a problem when the enemies take a full clip to bring down) and there are no save points anywhere.

    Usually when I try a game demo, I may like the game but find it unplayable due to a poor porting job that makes it jerky and slow no matter what hardware you use. But in this case, it's just because the game is really, really bad.

    I found this game to be pretty good fun actually. Yes, it is a bit linear, but it's still enjoyable to play and the graphics are good.

    XIII is lovely to look at, but really fairly mundane and linear in gameplay. I commend Feral in the port, but I would love to find out who decides which games to port at Feral, as there are many fantastic games on PC and consoles that never see the Mac, yet game companies complain we don't buy enough games. Port the games WE want and we'll buy like hotcakes. Anyhow, enough ranting... hopefully other XIII players will enjoy this stylish, if predictable game.

    No complaints here. The action is intense and stylish, and complemented by great visuals. Simply superb, IMHO.

    Yes, it's the same, but with some higher rez bits, and it's slower (typical port nonsense etc.)
