Mechanical innovation is often viewed as strictly contextual, in that it solves a problem or improves the functionality of a gameplay element. Gunvalkyrie challenges this perception by eschewing the conventions of its genre with a complex, unorthodox control scheme that radically shapes the direction of the game.
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).
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.

Halo delivers as Bungie's and Microsoft's showcase release for the Xbox. It is technically sound and manages to incorporate most of the innovative ideas that drew praise from audiences at its debut. The vehicle-based combat, huge outdoor environments and complexity of the AI—though old hat for PC gamers—are quite groundbreaking in a console video game.
