Ecks Versus Sever – Second Opinion

I'm not exactly sure what to make of Ecks Versus Sever. The game seems like a major technological achievement, being one of the first games to get polygons onto the Game Boy Advance. Yet it also seems like a dinosaur, playing and looking like Doom, and using, of all things, a password save. The password save especially threw me off. I don't think I've seen a game that used password saves since the NES days.

Ecks Versus Sever

Game Description: Taking the role of either Jonathan Ecks, hardened FBI agent, or Sever, trained NSA killer, players are immersed in a world of government conspiracy, high impact weapons, and first-person-shooter action. Players must survive more than 14 intense single-player missions through seven different locations, including warehouses, hotels, bars, and government headquarters. Gamers can immerse themselves in the dynamic story mode that changes based on whether they play as Ecks or Sever, or blast their way through high-adrenaline four-player action, including Deathmatch, Bomb Kit, Assassination, and Secure the Perimeter modes. A four-player multi-boot option is also available. Players master explosive weapons such as the Colt M16A2 rifle, Sig SSG 3000 sniper rifle, and the Heckler & Koch 40 mm grenade launcher.

Ecks Versus Sever – Review

Undoubtedly, Ecks Versus Sever is a very competent FPS despite being hampered by a very tiny view screen, barely serviceable controls, and limited 3-D rendering hardware. It has a uniquely conceived design premise based on the two playable perspectives of its opposing spy protagonists, Ecks (emotionally-scared father where the death of his family continues to haunt him) and Sever (heartless femme fatale who born and raised to kill).
