The leader of the free world has been assassinated and you are the prime suspect.

You wake up on a desolate strip of a New England beach. The near-fatal impact of a bullet has left your head pounding and your memory erased. What's more, the number XIII has been mysteriously tattooed on your chest, while your pocket holds a key to a New York City bank box. Head swimming in amnesia, you struggle to your feet only to encounter more assailants intent on finishing the job. To your shock, you handle the hitmen with the killing skills of a professional - before heading to the bank in search of any shred of information about your lost identity and your involvement in the president's murder.

What lies ahead is a deadly quest not only into your shadowy past, but also into America's darkest corridors of power.

PlayStation 2 players benefit from five multiplayer modes, including The Hunt and Power Up with up to four players online, in addition to the two-player split-screen offline. The exclusive PlayStation 2 multiplayer mode, Power Up, is a custom Deathmatch multiplayer mode that includes various pick-ups. Some classic pick-ups are replaced with funnier ones, such as Frag Instant Death (ability to kill an opponent with one shot) or SuperGnome (character becomes deformed). Additionally, pick-ups are chosen according to the player's score position. The best player will receive the worst pick-ups and vice versa.

In the Hunt, players chase a running target throughout the map. Points are scored depending on how much damage is inflicted each time the target is hit. The more times the target is hit, the smaller it becomes, so scoring gets harder. Players gain extra points by killing the target, but touching the target results in death.
