Unit 13 review

 

American spec ops versus Middle Eastern terrorist types has been done to death – can Unit 13 transcend its rather unoriginal setting?

Low on originality, high on quality action, Unit 13 is a PS Vita must-buy

Unit 13

 

As the first military shooter on PS Vita, Unit 13 has the market more or less to itself, but it's a game that comes some way short of delivering on its portable gaming promise.

Decent portable gaming philosophy ; Can be fun with a friend

Feels like it needed more time in the oven ; Frustrating far too often

As the first military shooter on PS Vita, Unit 13 has the market more or less to itself, but it's a game that comes some way short of delivering on its portable gaming promise. Certain key aspects of the game don't feel like they've had enough time...

Unit 13 Review

 

Infiltrating enemy territory and tactically eliminating evildoers is tense and enjoyable in Unit 13.

The need for caution and vigilance makes missions suspenseful ; Good variety of mission types ; Scoring system and leaderboards encourage you to perform skillfully and efficiently

Occasionally erratic enemy behavior ; Elite missions can be overly punishing

So the challenge lies not in targeting and killing foes but in keeping yourself alive. Most missions give you regenerating health, but it still only takes a few shots in rapid succession to finish you off. So when you opt to hide behind cover to take...

Unit 13 Review

 

Zipper are another studio to suffer closure at the hands of Sony. Is this yet another first-party Vita title from the launch window to go awry?

An odd mixture of SOCOM bundled with Bulletstorm, together with the online challenge of Trials, "Unit 13" is not the game I expected from Zipper. It’s by no means perfect, but it looks and sounds good, has plenty of content, and is well suited to...

Unit 13 - Could have been better

 

Unit 13 is a tactical shooter for the PlayStation Vita from Zipper Interactive, the makers of the SOCOM series. It's the closest PS Vita owners will get to a Rainbow Series game – that is until Ubisoft actually put out a Rainbow Six game for Sony's...

While I enjoyed the game’s stealth as well as its run-and-gun mechanics, the whole mission structure was a major buzzkill for me. For one, I never forged any sort of connection with any of the protagonists or their cause, because I could choose a new...

UNIT 13 Review PS Vita

 

Unit 13 is Zipper Interactive's latest console title. Available now on PS Vita it gives you most of the benefits of a solid full console game with the advantages of a portable console. Many may argue that a tactical shooter on a portable console...

Unit 13 PlayStation Vita Review

 

That said, the developers put the focus squarely on the gameplay, which we found refreshing. No need for long-winded speeches or poorly animated cut scenes starring stereotypical army guys. Instead, the game sticks to the basics. You play as one of...

Six operatives to choose from, 45 entertaining and increasingly difficult missions, online co-op, Daily Challenges, leaderboards

Inconsistent A.I., does little we haven't seen before, no competitive multiplayer

Sony wasted no time bringing a third person shooter to PlayStation Vita, putting the system's analog sticks to good use with Unit 13, a game from SOCOM creator Zipper Interactive. While revolutionary content is few and far between, this by the numbers...

Unit 13 Review

 

G-G-G-G-G-G-Unit. 13.

There's little story to be had in Unit 13 but that doesn't matter: there's a hoard of missions to tackle, a number of operatives to upgrade and weapons to unlock, a great leaderboard system to keep you competing with friends, and an addictive scoring...

Unit 13

 

It's what the Vita's hardware is begging for: a worthy dual stick shooter. Do the developers of SOCOM..

While some gamers may disapprove of the lack of a story-driven campaign, I believe that Unit 13 is exactly what Vita owners want while on the go. It delivers instant action, without the time consuming clutter of cut-scenes. Furthermore, the game...

Unit 13 Review

 

They want you to think that you can play a shooter on the go.

Shooters work on the Vita; Controls well; Bite-sized missions; Online co-op

Lack the pomp of the genre; Online only co-op, rather; No competitive modes

If you're patient, you should probably wait for a bigger name with a bigger first-person or third-person shooter. If this is your genre, there's no stopping you from picking up this title. Still, if you just want to give those dual analogs a work-out,...
