    Surprising good game that is a total blast to play

    The graphics on the MAC version of this game are excellent, makes you wish you could get out of the Spyhunter vehicle and explore the cities and landscape. Same problem a lot of games have is you are limited to your are... Read Full Review

    Not the best game in the series! In fact pretty brutal!

    Sure it does have some fun moments of driving around and blowing up stuff but overall this is just a plain boring "arcade game". I was very disapointed when I played this game and I wish I never got it. Basically y... Read Full Review

    Not the revolutionary gaming experience I expected, but good all the same.

    Spy Hunter was my first ever PS2 game so natrually I played it to death. That also explains the high tilt. It's a fun game. I spent hours playing (replaying actually) it. I've blown up my brother many a time while racing... Read Full Review

    At least it was clean.

    The only thing I liked about Spy Hunter was the fact that it is a clean game. No nudity, or course language or adult themes. It wasn't utterly boring but I wouldn't say it was a joy to play either. The graphics aren't an... Read Full Review

    Not what I expected it to be.

    In this driving game all you do is basicaly drive around and do missions.This gets boring very quickly.You get this high-tech super-car equipped with weapons, and go from one stage to another.Each stage is in a different... Read Full Review

    The car is sexy and the gameplay is exiting. That's good enough for me.

    Spy Hunter is an action driving game based on the 80's top-down arcade game of the same name. This PS2 update sticks closely to what made the original a classic, while still bringing it to the PS2 generation in terms of ... Read Full Review

    I-SPY HUNTER

    First off the sound is fantastic. The blues brothers theme tune. The ingame sound is also good and the cutscenes are ace if a little short. The graphics are nothing to shout about but do the job and the car is nicely det... Read Full Review

    It's ok, but I expected more from the SpyHunter series

    2001's Spy Hunter remake wasn't nearly as good as the original, and that's pretty sad. Sure, it looks better and there are some nice guns and things for your car to transform into, but it's pretty much just some driving-... Read Full Review

    Graphics: The graphics are ok, the car models looks the best in here, but the enviroment looks kinda boring, the civilian cars r quite ugly to look at, and some of the explosions look bland and borin. Sound: The sou... Read Full Review

    Looking back on SpyHunter, you can't help but realise that the old games have still got it in them, and this is 2007!

    It might be hard to take in that SpyHunter was released nearly 6 years ago. For me, it was one of the first games in my PlayStation 2 collection - I think it might well have been my first, but seeing as it's so long ago,... Read Full Review
