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


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,...

Unit 13 Review


I know the first thing that came to a lot of people's minds when the Vita was first shown was, “finally we have two analog sticks, and we can play shooters properly.” Well, Unit 13 is the first...

Bite-sized missions ; Controls are slick ; Good use of touch screen

Forgettable narrative ; Elite missions can be frustrating ; Just feels flat at times

I know the first thing that came to a lot of people’s minds when the Vita was first shown was, “finally we have two analog sticks, and we can play shooters properly.” Well, Unit 13 is the first game to showcase if that is indeed true. Developed by the...

Unit 13 Review


Do SOCOM developer skills carry over to the PlayStation Vita? We play Unit 13 and find out.

Unit 13 doesn't have flashy visuals or an in-depth campaign, but it does have good controls and plenty to do. I think the AI could use a tune-up and the visuals some polish, but if you're looking for a game to sink bullet after bullet into, Unit 13...

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 Preview


Zipper Interactive knows how to make a great shooter. Known for their SOCOM and MAG efforts, this studio puts a ton of effort into every new project, and Unit 13 for the PlayStation Vita is no different. They are embracing the Vita's NEAR function and...

And don’t forget about two-player co-op!

Unit 13 review

Unit 13 is a decent game that could have been so much more. It frustratingly lacks any semblance of a storyline - meaning that you are basically mindlessly killing. The level design allows you to choose how to approach a mission, but the levels...

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 - 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...
