XIII is a pretty damn decent effort in making a comic book type of game. This game is stylized to the brim. It also has a fun littly mystery action story that just keeps unraveling new twists after another. There are a lot of action sequences and a lot of sneaking sequences. The save system, however, makes the latter really frustrating because they are so easy to screw up. You can take a few hits but just getting seen can sometimes scratch a lot of progress off. I enjoyed the feel of the game and kept wanting to return to it. All that said there was still a sense of disconnect to the game. It didn’t really build its identity at any point. It was always just a guy shooting at other guys and that gets tiresome quickly.
