One of the more critically acclaimed titles of the Game Boy Advance's first generation of first-person shooters gets a sequel in this release. Coming to market around the same time as the feature film on which the first game was based, this second installment continues the storyline from a point when the former FBI agent Ecks and the ex-NSA operative Sever have joined forces to fight corruption around the globe.
Arms manufacturers have been spurring international conflicts, to keep weapons sales up. Worse, it appears they may be working with turncoat Secret Service agents who feed them information. Sever travels overseas to seek out suspected "sleeper groups," while Ecks investigates here at home. The two agents will need to rely on wit, luck, and skill, as well as each other, if they're going to stop the wicked plot before it escalates to a true nuclear cataclysm.
Artificial intelligence has been improved in this sequel, for enemies are designed to react realistically to the sights and sounds around them. Levels are set in real-world locations, with larger, more interactive environments. The single-player game offers over two dozen missions across a developing, narrative storyline. Two cartridge-equipped GBA gamers can play the multiplayer modes, which include Deathmatch, Assassination, Bomb Kit, Capture the Flag, and cooperative mission campaigns. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
