XIII for Xbox
Agent XIII is stuck on a sandy coast with amnesia. An alleged assassin of the US President, he must now defeat the plan of “the XX” gang of 20 schemers who wish to take over the government. While facing his would-be killers, XIII recalls happenings momentarily; through the course of 13 chapters and 54 missions, he must discover his true identity.
XIII wields anything from a Uzi to an M60, and even brooms, broken bottles, human shields, and even taking hostages. Nothing is off limits, making for an intensely gripping experience. The true novelty is not however in the use of different techniques like action, puzzle solving, and stealth, but in the way all of these elements come together.
In comic-book mode, the game unfolds with incredibly well animated cut-scenes with cel-shaded graphics. All levels are well thought out, and special enemy AI and weapon toting action add to the gripping. Multi-player mode can accommodate 16 players with unique game modes for each system, making XIII a true gamer’s delight.
