The game doesn't actually need remade, but I guess maybe will actually buy it this time.

Unfortunately I don't remember much of the game beyond throwing knifes it's an unusual art-style.

Now this is something I never expected to see again, XIII in this day & age. I played XIII on Gamecube, the original is one of my favorite FPS of 6th gen, but it didn't do very well. They left the game on a cliffhanger and cancelled the sequel. I shall most definitely be keeping an eye on this remake and hopefully the experience remains like on PS2/Gamecube era.

Am I the only one that doesn't know this game? Most people on this forum know their games from up to the 60s and 70s.

Wow, what a random remake out of the blue. Not gonna lie, I did like the original XIII a bit back then. But it's not that unique now.

Why couldn't they remake No One Lives Forever instead?

XIII doesn't even rate that highly. 6.4 here on Gamespot...

@watercrack445: This game is only 15+ years old lol.

I remember playing this on PS2. Low budget cel shaded shooter. Had some cool ideas that were not used in too many games at the time.

It wasn’t an amazing game by any means, but I still had some fun with it. Would probably give it 7/10.

@biggest_loser: No one lives forever is probably the funniest game series I have played.

I remember getting a demo with a complete soundtrack for this game and I thought the soundtrack was awesome. The game itself was alright and I'm glad it's getting a remake.

Wow this is insane, I've been really missing this game as of late.

The cell shaded artstyle, the fun shooting, the comic book influences. I hope they do a great job remaking it.

This is depressing. Ubisoft made great games during gen 6 that deserve remasters before this mediocre crap. Well, assuming you owned an Xbox which were vastly superior to ps2 and GameCube ports. Especially some of the games that weren’t multiplat. Rainbow Six 3/Black Arrow (Xbox), Ghost Recon/Island Thunder (Xbox)/Jungle Storm (ps2, Ngage), Ghost Recon 2 (Xbox had an exclusive campaign that never saw ps2 or GameCube releases)/Summit Strike (Xbox), Splinter Cell/Pandora Tomorrow/Chaos Theory. All better games than friggin’ XIII.

So pointless unless they're releasing a sequel after? This was a pretty sweet multiplayer game on Xbox Live and split screen though

@needdistraction: Yeah, it was like the new GoldenEye.

So many games release all the time, so many fly under the radar.

XIII has kind of gotten a cult following, it was met with lukewarm reception from reviewers, but there are a ton of fans of the game.

It does feel random but I'm all for it. If it proves a success we may get more random HD remakes and maybe they will get around to games that I loved. Maybe we will finally see that rerelease of Skies of Arcadia, or a remake of Baten Kaitos.

They should have made the sequel though as it ended on a cliffhanger. But I really enjoyed the original game.

I am fine not revisiting this, but cool I guess for people that still have an itch.
