  1. Something different and new, something that actually makes a spy game a true spy game.
  2. Despite its flaws, Spy Fiction does deliver enough "wow moments" and inventive set pieces to make up for the too-frequent bouts of tedium or spotty AI. [Oct 2004, p.132]
  3. 72
    The disguises and a few little touches here and there are nice; however, the third-person stealth genre is getting kind of stale, and, without some serious formula changes, there isn’t really enough here to make this game stand out from the competition.
  4. The problem with many of the conventions in Spy Fiction is that they don't make the game more fun. They just seem kind of strange and unnecessary, and feel like things that a little bit more effort in the game's design could have remedied.
  5. Though it tries to emulate many of the signature elements of its peers, it ends up a bit of a disappointment.
  6. The sad thing about Spy Fiction is that it almost gets interesting. There are some plot twists and a few entertaining cutscenes that toy with the idea of actually drawing you into the game. But they come too little, too late. And they certainly aren’t enough to make up for an unfinished game.
  7. Occasionally seems bad in a good way thanks to some unintentionally funny B-movie schlock and ridiculous dialogue. But make no mistake- this is a bad game and isn’t worth your attention unless you simply must run around as a stripper and taser people.
