IMG Reviews Feral's XIII
12:28 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a review of XII, the new cell-shaded first person shooter from publisher Feral Interactive and porting house Zonic. Here's a clip from the review:

XIII runs on a heavily modified variant of the Unreal engine, under normal circumstances this would allow the game to look almost lifelike in motion, but in order to retain true to the story’s comic book heritage the developers at Ubi-Soft performed a major overhaul on the graphics portion of the engine. Cel-shading has become more common in the intervening years since Sega used it for the first time in ‘Jet Set Radio’ for their Dreamcast console, yet it is still considered a mere ‘gimmick’ and a sign of a ‘kiddies’ game, the former in my opinion has never been true, XIII is testament that the latter is also false.
