  1. Something different and new, something that actually makes a spy game a true spy game.
  2. Its crazy camera makes running and gunning difficult, and being stealthy is too much work and takes too much time. Had the game stuck with its unique, brainy moments, it would have been a much better experience.

    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. It tries hard, and there are some clever ideas, but too many design shortcuts ensure that Spy Fiction is still Roger Moore to "Metal Gear Solid's" Sean Connery. [Oct 2004, p.42]
  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.
