    If you're forced to choose, take this version over the more frustrating Xbox one.
  2. Spy Hunter isn't a game to pass up.
  3. I can't really say more than 'YOU NEED THIS TITLE' for no other reason than to prove how games should be done.
  4. The real appeal of Spy Hunter comes from the gameplay and the controls. The handling is exquisite.
  5. Spyhunter may be a throwback to that original arcade game, but this old friend never looked so good, or was as welcomed.

    It just looks awful and pixilated. [May 2002, p.85]
  7. If you own a PS2, get that version instead.

    The game is a perfect 3d realization of the original Spy Hunter. The controls are great for single-touch movement. The graphics are actually The game is a perfect 3d realization of the original Spy Hunter. The controls are great for single-touch movement. The graphics are actually better for GameCube than any other system, though not far off in this catagory. For instance, the Gamecube version is the only one to use full three-crested raytracing on the car to make reflections. Little touches like that. Also, those web sites that say that the framerate is bad need to review the game AFTER it hits the market. The original release was buggy in the framerate--a conversion problem. That was fixed in the second release, which also had a few problems. The current release, #3, is fine, and those reviewers who get pre-release copies or never get re-releases need to get the newer release of the game. It actually surpasses the PS2 and X-Box versions in small details. I give the game a 9 rating only because of the lack of the ability to choose modes for multiplayer, because most of the levels that are not Chicken Hunt ones would be better as Chicken Hunt ones.
