There's no doubt that developers all over the United States (not to mention Canada and Europe) are scrambling to pick up the license to the brand new Mad Max sequel. With the return of Mel Gibson the action star, and a whole world of post-apocalyptic hooligans to beat up, this is one property that could actually be a killer app for any console.

But why wait for that? Perhaps we could interest you in the other Mel Gibson-related video game, one that is just as exciting, but with a lot more blood. That's right; we're talking about the Passion of the Christ for your GameBoy Advance, brought to you by Midway. We've had a chance to post an early preview, and in its early build it's set to live up to everybody's high expectations.

Ultimately the Passion of the Christ is part one on one fighting game, part puzzle-solving dungeon crawler. Traveling from city to city,

We can only hope that Midway decides to develop the Signs game, too!
Christ is asked to put aside his differences and defeat the great evil that has cursed the city. Once you've found the cause of the pain and suffering, it's your job to punch and kick your way in a traditional "Street Fighter"-style brawler.

Though there are plenty of long-winded cinemas, the Passion is presented in a Aramaic without any English subtitles or translation. Complete stories will be fleshed out in front of your eyes, with hundreds of lines of text, all on your GameBoy Advance. Save the action sequences for later, Jesus has some business to take care of with Pontuis Pilate.

Passion is set up to allow for non-linear game play, offering gamers a choice of the righteous path or one filled with despair and heartache. No matter how you play it, though, the outcome is the same, with Jesus being strung up to perish on a cross in the hot, hot sun. But don't let that get you down, I hear Midway already has a lead on how they can get Jesus to come back for a sequel to this exciting franchise.

Whether you're a fan of fighting games, Mel Gibson, or the big J himself, you'll want to get your hands on the Passion of the Christ GameBoy Advance game to see what the fuss is all about.
