The fact that due to how under-rated it is, we probably won't get a sequel.
XIII: Unlucky for Some? Only the "baddies"
XIII is the first game of it's kind.
Never before has their been a game with cartoon graphics, which are beautiful, that has had such a sinister plot. You wake up on a beach, with no memory of the night before, or any other night for that matter. All you know is you have a mysterious scar on your shoulder, all it says is "XIII". As you slowly regain your memory, and re-learn some of your skills from your army days, the plot thickens. The prime candidate for the Presidency of the United States has been shot dead by a sniper. AND YOU'RE SUSPECT NO. 1. You must punch, shoot, and explode anything in your way to get to the bottom of this mystery.

At this point, nothing really!
I've been waiting for this one for a while and not so much for the cell-shading, but for the story...I loved the Bourne Identity and the whole kennedy Assasination conspiracy thing. When I first read the reviews, I was a little disappointed, but after playing the game, I have to disagree with the reviews. I liked the game, found it to be true to form and had quite a bit of originality. Now unless the game takes a sudden turn for the worst, I truly feel they did a remarkable job. Up to this point, I really found nothing wrong with the game. The game mixes shoot em up, and stealth action nicely, with a bit of adventure. The story is compelling and the weaponry is sweet, especially the silent killer, the crossbow. Also, the assault rifle, has a nice realistic kick to it, forcing you use take short burst fire as opposed to squeezing o...
