Ice Nine is a first-person shooter video game for the Game Boy Advance. It was one of the final first-person shooters on the console. It was originally going to be a tie-in with the film The Recruit. However, this fell through, but the plot of the game remains unchanged. There was also a planned PlayStation 2 port, but it was canceled at some point in development.
Ice Nine (video game) Wikipedia
The plot of Ice Nine is similar to the film The Recruit on which it was previously based. The player takes control of the recruit Tom Carter on a mission to stop an evil plot to steal the diabolical computer virus "Ice Nine". Over the course of the game, Carter unravels a conspiracy within the CIA.
Ice Nine was met with lukewarm reviews. It was praised for its above-average graphics and music, but criticized for its boring level design in comparison with earlier shooters such as Ecks vs. Sever. It currently has a 44% overall average on GameRankings.
