English XIII Demo

The English-language single player demo for XIII is now available, offering a sample of Ubi Soft's upcoming cel-shaded Unreal-engine shooter, a bit earlier than the "middle of August" that was recently predicted (story). The demo offers two levels for an 80 MB download, which is available from 3D Gamers, FileFront, FileShack (registration required), GameCenter, Gamer's Hell, and Loadedinc (registration required). Update: Some of these links were to a passworded version of the demo, so some of these mirrors are unavailable while this is being sorted out.

When you change options from within a level, they don't stick. You have to exit the level completely, change it from the main menu, then restart the level from the beginning.

But otherwise, I think it looks, sounds and plays pretty sweet. I don't see any reason to complain, though I can't tell from the demo whether it will be the best of the year or anything.

Got it off 3d gamers, installed it, black screen frozen. Alt-tabbing out causes a general protection fault.

No sound
No in-game save
The first lvl stops after the girl tries to give me something
Lots of UI bugs
Overall a very crappy product. Could be good if the bugs go away =)

Doesn't work. Refresh rate problem. I've seen this before, but only with UT based games. They've apparently ripped out some of the error code because the engine doesn't detect when the last instance of the game has crashed (UT games typically offer to run the game at safe settings, this one doesn't). And before you open your mouth and actually show how dumb you are:
-There is no refresh rate setting in any of the .ini files.
-Changing my monitor's refresh to 60 Hz still elicits a refresh error. 60 Hz is the de facto Windows standard refresh rate. That means the demo is bugged. Period. Probably doesn't like the driver version that I'm using, but I'm not going to wade through four or five versions to find one that works.
-EVERYTHING else on this system works, including games, high-end 3D modelling software, and pixel and vector art software. Pretty sure it's not on my end.

*sigh* Another one bites the dust. Sad too because the videos actually impressed me.

My controls seem to be locked in the reverse + pan left mode. I tried all sorts of stuff but the controls won't release?!?!

Hey Thera good buddy, I can help you out.

You had a joystick installed and the game automatically set it to default. Simply set UseJoystick to false in the XIII.ini.

Talk to you soon buddy.

I actually liked this demo.. I wouldnt buy the game.. but I think they tried something different.. which is always to be applauded in this copy-cat industry.

I played it on my 9800, cat 3.6 at 1600x1200 with 6x aa 16x af with no problems at all. I really like the feel of this game, the comic book style opens up a lot of possibilities for level design and it appears they make use of them.

It ran well on my comp at 1024x768, which is nice, considering I'm using a P4 1.5GHz, 256MB RAM, and a Geforce2 Ultra. The only problem I noticed was that the music was all screwed up with skipping, static and the like. Restarting the game seemed to remedy the problem though.

I've got an nVidia card (GeForce Ti 4400 128) and a 2.4Mhz P4 -- with the latest drivers for everything.

I run my monitor @ 85Hz/1024x768 normally without issue.

I've never seen that "Sync. out of range" error before and I play a *lot* of games on this PC.
