I just got XIII yesterday but I haven't played it yet. Does anyone play it on live? How is it?

I shoulda asked BEFORE I bought it but it was an impulse buy and I couldn't help it.

I'm curious about this, also. My brother gets wicked deals at his job, and just called me asking 'bout XIII. He can score a copy for under $15 (used), so any info would be appreciated.

I haven't played it on Live but I've been reading the reviews for the online bit of XIII and apparently its crap, only the online bit. They say it lags too much. I've played it offline and its pretty good. Reminds me of Goldeneye back in the N64.

I have it and played it online. Besides some frame rate issues and a one time buffer issue, it plays decently. The only real problem online is not too many people are playing it, so waiting for a match to begin can get a bit long. Go with Counter Strike or Rainbow Six 3 for a good online shooter.

I've played it, completed it and kept it for a week and traded it in for Project Gotham Racing 2.

i just played it on Live today. i like it. its really fun and looks great. no problems with lag at all like some ppl say..but of course that all depends on who you play with n the connection so it could happen with any game...

too bad i suck hella badly. add me if you wanna play.

Im tired of people whining about lag issues. When will they realize how latency works?

Its not the games fault, its the morons who try to host when they lack the upload speeds.

I am now going to bang my Keyboard in frustation.

Im thinking about buying it. It sounds pretty good. And that lag thing really pisses me off too. If you have a ****ty server, DONT HOST! ITS THAT SIMPLE!

^ I wouldn't say it's terrible online.

My opinion? Not as good as say Rainbow 6 or Ghost Recon.....but a lot better than Unreal. I find XIII a refreshing change of pace, and I really dig the comic book style gameplay :D

I'd have to say that XIII is not good at all on Live IMO. My opinion is rather biased tho, i'm a big Halo player and I thrive for boards that are outside and very large.

Rented XIII, beat it in two days time. Multiplayer wasn't customizable enough to really sell itself as a good Live game.

thats what i like about it...the change of pace from games like rb6 and GR, and its something different from the typical halo. and i love the cel-shading coimic book look. its just a completely different and fun experience
