Daniel Etherington has written this article on the BBC site about video games trying to find a “new look”

I was particularly interested this game. XIII (Note: this isn’t the official site, but the content is pretty much the same – and the site is still by the game developers – the interface is just slightly better(read:less annoying))

The plot looks fairly familiar (unknown man wakes up in unknown place with amnesia, mysterious clues and people trying to kill him) – but the style appears rather different.

It’s not a totally new style for a game. GTA III & Friends (for example) had something similar for most of the stills, but I can’t think of a game that has used the graphic novel style quite so exclusively – certainly not recently.
