As Tom Carter, you'll perform a variety of missions that slowly unlock a conspiracy within the CIA. You have an arsenal of tactical equipment, including a sniper rifle, submachine guns, shotguns, night vision goggles, and more. Take down your artificial intelligence-controlled enemies in different environments, or challenge up to three of your friends in a deathmatch arena. Expand

  1. Offering 10 weapons and gadgets, including night-vision goggles, the game is a strong entry in the growing library of GBA FPS titles. [July 2003, p.146]
  2. Being 3D isn't impressive for its own sake anymore. [Spring 2005, p.77]
  3. While Ice Nine is based on the "Duke Nukem Advance" engine, it doesn't offer the wit or intelligence (or shooting accuracy) of its precursor. [Apr 2004, p.110]

    Ice Nine is the second best FPS for the GBA and the last released. Ice Nine re-uses the same Duke Nukem Advance engine that I love so much and which makes this game so good. The graphics in this game must be seen to be believed and are visually stunning. Ice Nine features 3 skill levels which give you bonuses after you complete each mode. An array of weapons is also given to you: a knife, pistol, sniper rifle, machine gun, shotgun, grenade launcher, and a rocket launcher. The game starts out with your training and then throws you into the action of a major conspiracy. Ice Nine also features levels set in the daytime, evening, and night (night vision goggles come in handy here!). The game is fun and enjoyable from start to finish! A must-have! Expand

    Listen, this is the truth. This is the best game right now on the Game Boy Advance. Its graphics (which are amazing) beat Nightfire or Doom on the GBA. In most first-person shooters that are out now, have terrible grapics compared to this. I admit, the gameplay is a little slow, but trust me, this is better than most games. If a new first-person shooter comes out with good graphics, and better gameplay, my rating for this game will change from a 9 to a 5. Collapse

    When I played Ice Nine, I was amazed. Bam entertainment, whos games actually most of the time suck, was great. Ice Nine for the GBA and PS2 both played great and I dont see how this game made it. Really, this game is a cinderella story that will hook you till the end. Expand

    I had been waiting for this game for almost one year, and I couldn't be more disappointed. The graphical engine is not bad, but not much better than the ones used in Duke or Doom II, with just a few additions, such a snipper rifle. But when we come to gameplay is where Ice Nine completely fails. You have to complete the missions in a very structured manner, and can be killed at any moment for such a stupis reason as "a civil has seen your weapon". Come on, just unbearable. Forget about Ice Nine. Not worthy even for rental. Expand
