The 20 best PlayStation shooters of all time: the reader vote


XIII, PS2 2003

This just scraping in the top 20 is sign that distinctive and original games make their mark. Based on a French Espionage graphic novel (stay with me) it follows a Bourne-style spy trying to track down his past. What made it really stand out was a beautifully crisp cartoon art style that stayed faithful to the source material, right down to the pop up frames highlighting action like headshots and explosions.
