I mean, it's still sort of pathetic, but a cult classic that had been on sale for the week and had for under $3 vs a $40 remake with a known ton of issues and questionable design choices.

XIII Remake's Remake Is 'The Room' Of Videogames

DualShockers Writes "XIII has had a complicated life. The comic book turned video game ended with a glaring cliffhanger and next to nothing to follow it up for two console generations.

Better yet, it'd feature online multiplayer, restored mechanics cut from the original game, and a total visual redux to more closely match the original game but better. Was it worth the wait?"
