According to ESRB, this game contains: Violence
Parents should take heed that as far a Game Boy Advance games go, Ecks Versus Sever doesnt have any profanity, sexual content, or drug-use, but it is as violent and visually intense as it gets. The game is based on what will most likely be a rated-R film (if it ever gets released) and the espionage theme and dark storyline is more suited for mature audiences.
For fans of simpler first-person shooters like Wolfenstein and Doom, Ecks Versus Sever is top-notch stuff. The overall presentation is lacking and will keep the title from reaching platinum status, but the gameplay is a nice surprise and consistently good.
Fans of more evolved first-person shooters like Half-Life or GoldenEye 007 may find Ecks Versus Sever a little lacking, but not by much. The game provides some wicked options and comes close to really elevating the bar, but ultimately falls short by not presenting a more well rounded gaming experience.
Somewhere between all the gaming, Chi some how managed to finish high school and get into the New York Institute of Technology. At the same time, Chi also interned at Virtual Frontiers, an Internet software consultancy where he learned the ways of HTML. Soon after acquiring his BFA, Chi went on to become the lead Web designer of the Anti-Defamation League. During his tenure there, Chi was instrumental in redesigning and relaunching the non-profit organization's Web site.
Today, Chi is the webmaster of the American Red Cross in Greater New York and somehow managed to work through the tragic events of September 11th without losing his sanity. Chi considers GameCritics.com his life's work and continues to be amazed that the web site is still standing after the recent dotcom fallout. It is his dream that GameCritics.com will accomplish two things: 1) Redefine the grammar of videogames much the same way French film critic Andre Bazin did for the art of cinema and 2) bring game criticism to the forefront of mainstream culture much the same way Siskel & Ebert did for film criticism.
