Excerpt: Before I start, there
are probably two things you need to know about me. I love first person
shooters and I don't play as many FPSs as I would like to, but I can
still tell the difference between a good one and a crappy one. Aim and Shoot
Ecks vs. Sever was published about a year before DooM, and I could be
wrong, but I'm pretty sure it's based on the movie of the same name.
Excerpt: When the Gameboy Advance was about come out, I wasn’t exactly dying to get one; from the games that I’d seen, it looked nothing more than a redesigned Gameboy Colour (or Color, depending on where you live). A quick play on someone else’s import version made me certain that it was nothing special. Browsing online one day, I came across a title named Ecks Vs. Sever and downloaded a video of it.
Excerpt: In 2001, Ecks vs. Sever was the best FPS that we had ever seen on the GBA. It was released not long after launch, and despite three years passing, big names such as James Bond, Duke Nukem, and Serious Sam have all fallen short of this game's graphical prowess and fun factor.
Excerpt: Ecks vs. Sever is a first person shooter for the GBA platform. In spite of the many critics of the GBA platform, Ecks vs. Sever is rendered in full 3D fashion. Its technical achievement is a cross between Wolfenstein 3D and Rise of the Triad. It is like the first title because of the ninety-degree cornered rooms and objects. Moreover, there isn't much emphasis on height in Ecks vs. Sever.
Excerpt: All too often, games based on licenses fail to entertain. No one knows why, it's just an unwritten rule. However, it seems bam! entertainment has found a way around this problem. Their new Gameboy Advance title, Ecks VS Sever, is based on a movie that hasn't even been released yet. Franchise Pictures licensed the game to Crawfish and they created the game from a script.
