XIII is a cel-shaded first-person shooter based on a long-running French comic
book of the same name. The game definitely plays up its comic book roots,
complete with readable sound effects and comic-book-like panels that pop up
while you're playing. While it definitely has a certain sense of style to it,
the game itself misses its mark, and the total package isn't one that will hold
the interest of most first-person shooter players.
XIII, or "Thirteen," is both the name of the game and the name of the character
you'll play as, though there's definitely some question about your character's
identity. The game opens with you waking up with a gunshot wound after washing
up on a beach, unable to remember anything at all. As you proceed through the
game, you'll begin to piece together your past, which is an interesting one, to
say the least. As it happens, you have the face of a man accused of
assassinating the president with a sniper rifle. But are you, in fact, that
man? Or are you an agent given a new face in an attempt to get to the bottom
of the assassination conspiracy? The game attempts to answer these questions
with prerendered and in-engine cutscenes, as well as slightly interactive
flashbacks that occasionally burst out in the middle of a level. While none of
these devices are particularly effective storytellers, the story has enough to
it that you'll at least be interested in seeing it through, even in the face of
XIII's rather rudimentary gameplay.
