Editors' Review

Built around Epic's Unreal technology, XIII (pronounced "thirteen," for non-Latin readers) uses cel-shaded animation to create a first-person shooter that looks like an animated comic book. The story is based on a series of French comics by Jean Van Hamme, and it places the gamer at the center of a political mystery involving the assassination of the U.S. president. You play an amnesiac special agent, whose only information comes from a "XIII" tattoo on your neck and a safety-deposit key, and you must discover your past while avoiding a murderous secret army.

Although the graphics aren't as realistic as some other 3D games, the comic book animation is very cool, especially combined with gameplay effects such as visible noises and multiple zoomed frame shots for detailed replays--the crossbow is particularly brutal. Assassins leaping from cliffs, dive-bombing helicopters, and earthshaking grenades are only a few of the highlights from the demo. The only major complaint is that the demo levels are simply too short, leaving us wanting a bit more time to get into the game.
