What do you guys think of Unit 13?

13 replies 17 views Edited Feb 27, 2012

Do you think it will be a good game or do you think it might flop?

I loved the demo, even though it had some very noticable framerate issues at times (which Uncharted does too, which has me a little worried about the higher quality games on the system).  Reminded me a lot of the Socom Fireteam Bravo 1 PSP game that me and my best friend were obsessed with back in middleschool when it came out, except better controls, really cool gameplay, and Co Op is always awesome.

I have high hopes for Unit 13.  Expecting atleast 8.0+ reviews and I'll definitely buy it day 1.

They should have added adversarial multiplayer, it would have been really fun. It would have brought back memories of when I played socom online on the psp. And now with 2 analogs it would have been even better. It will be a good game though regardless of not having adversarial multiplayer I guess.

No online = no buy.. seemed cool from the demo only problem was wayyyy to much touch screen usage.

I really love the idea of it. Controls seem much better to me than Uncharted.

Probably be a day 1 buy for me, but I really want MLB The Show as well.

Great controls, gameplay is smooth and fun enough to keep me challenged and entertained. I really wish it had competitive online multiplayer though. (Deathmatch, etc.)

You can download the demo on PSN to try it for yourself.

It's a great game. Doesn't use the touch screen too much and has tighter controls than Uncharted.

I like it. They are stepping away with the gameplay a little bit. I think it would suit them well to use this style gameplay for this new IP, rather than using it for a new SOCOM. Socom should be socom.

That said, it plays a lot like Socom 4. But better imho. The Vita controls are tight. Headshots are very satisfying. The gunplay has a good feel to it.

Take away the run button, the camera angle, and cover system, then it would be a pretty good Socom game.

The sound cut out on me on the demo.  I minimized it and when I came back to it the screen was frozen.  Deleted it and redownloaded.  Got a bit further into it and then same thing.  Froze me.

Only way to turn off the VITA was a hard reset.

Side note: my vita runs perfectly with Uncharted, Modnation, Mutant blobs, UMvC3, Escape plan, stardust, little deviants, lumines, and rayman. no other problems besides unit 13 demo.

Anyone else have a problem with it?
