XIII (pronounced: Thirteen) is loosely based on the 1984 Belgian comic book XIII, the player controls (through a first-person view) the protagonist Jason Fly (XIII), a confused and amnesic man who searches for his identity throughout a comic book-style, cellshaded world. Found stranded on a beach by a lifeguard, Fly is accused of having killed the President of the United States. The accusation later transpires as mistaken, as Fly finds himself facing a gang of 20 conspirators ("The XX") who aim to overthrow the government. Fly confronts his antagonist (Walter Sheridan (I), the boss of the gang) and the game ends with a dialogue, promising a sequel which was never created.

As an Ubisoft GameCube release, this game can crash. The issue seems to stem from savefiles getting into states that the game didn't expect, meaning that if you run into the bug, you will need to restart the game. Avoiding things like cheat-codes and sequence breaks may help avoid this issue.
