  1. 60
    A mash of minigames, half of which are decent and half of which waste the EyeToy's potential, offering up only the most basic input possible.
  2. EyeToy: Operation Spy has got some really cool features, but not enough of them to form a truly substantial game.
  3. Game Informer
    A great concept, but I just don't think the PS2 version of the EyeToy technology has the horsepower to pull it off. [Dec 2005, p.176]
  4. This is not a game of sophisticated espionage but it is a clever, innovative game that will entertain anyone who has an EyeToy when they’re not being frustrated to death by its limited technology.
  5. While Operation Spy has moments of enjoyable gameplay, it's hampered significantly by repetitive game mechanics found in previous EyeToy titles and a lack of depth to the story premise.
  6. Sony throws together some mini games and slaps the "spy" moniker in this lazy attempt to cash in on the holiday buying craze.
  7. Operation Spy is strictly for the 007 crowd – the age 0 to 7 crowd, that is.
  8. 50
    Spytoy could be one of the worst Eyetoy games available. The mission structure is repetitive and the game won't even occupy your attention until "Eyetoy: Play 3" is out.
  9. If you’ve got a child or sibling under twelve with a good imagination, they might have a good time with Operation Spy. Anyone else will likely find the game uninteresting, especially since most of the content is locked.
  10. PSM Magazine
    Too short, simple and shallow for the serious gamer, and without multiplayer, its party appeal is minimal. [Holiday 2005, p.92]
  11. Once you start capturing criminals, I found there are some pretty decent mini-games through the EyeToy.
  12. I am not sure whether it is the game, or possibly the surroundings I am in, but I was having no end of grief in getting the game to control properly.
  13. There’s some neat stuff here, and it’s easy to see how the application of the EyeToy itself could very easily lead to a kind of "Minority Report" interface for games with the next-gen EyeToy on the PS3, but the concepts arrived a bit too early here.
  14. The security features and high-resolution photo abilities are a nice plus, but they do little to hide the fact that OpSpy is a very mediocre game. Only the most hardcore EyeToy fans need apply to this Spy mission.
  15. Good for impressing people with technology - not quite so good as an actual game. [GamesMaster]
  16. A relatively entertaining game, at least at first before the repetition sets in.
  17. Official Playstation 2 Magazine UK
    If we'd had this wen we were eight, we'd have peed our pants. Literally. [Nov 2006, p.137]
