  • Summary: Based on the arcade classic, Spy Hunter combines explosive combat, action-racing, and mission-based game play as you drive the G-6155 Interceptor, capable of morphing on-the-fly into a jet-powered speed boat, jet watercraft, or motorcycle to escape and evade enemy fire. [Midway]

    Midway has perfectly translated SPY HUNTER into the 3D world and everything feels just right.
  2. From chasing down a hijacked Interceptor to protecting friendly forces or shutting down an enemy base, Spy Hunter rarely leaves you with less than four things to think about with each of the fourteen levels boasting some of the most exhilarating set-pieces your likely to have witnessed for some time.

    One of Midway's best arcade games in years because it provides an incredible level of racing thrills with a respectable quantity of blasting and action, but more to the point, it's not been messed up.
  4. Spy Hunter has left me stunned, proving itself to be one of the most fun and addictive games to hit the PS2.
  5. The addition of mid-level transitions between land and water also makes for exciting differences in the controls while simultaneously provisioning for some simply amazing environments.

    Driving the Interceptor is really easy so even those who aren’t into driving games can pick this up easily. The graphics are nicely done and it runs pretty smoothly.
  7. There's so much to like about Spy Hunter that it's a shame a few of the developers' design choices make it a chore to play through at times.

    There is just one thing to say about this game: STUNNING. You go from running over bad guys to destroying ships. Buy this game.

    A remake of the 1983 game. A used copy is out there somewhere. Find and buy it. It's mindless fun, but can be quite difficult. Here's hopingA remake of the 1983 game.
