Generally unfavorable reviews - based on 8 Critics What's this?

  • Summary: Embittered rivals White Spy and Black Spy return for more comical sabotage in this action-espionage game based on the characters made famous in MAD Magazine. Your mission is to retrieve top-secret information, while trying to outwit and outlast up to three friends (or enemies). Outlandish traps and hazards abound. Broadband networked and split screen multiplayer options allow players to outwit three of your best friends...or worst enemies. Unlock features such as disguises, levels, weapons, and items. In Mod-A-Spy Mode, go deep undercover donning the unlockable disguises and fooling your foolish opponents. Eight Game Modes including: Modern, Classic, Story and 5 multiplayer modes such as Death Match, Armed and Loaded, Get Mad, Last Man Standing and Run and Gun. Expand

  1. And while the graphics are fun, the translation into 3D has been totally mishandled and lost the whole appeal of the gameplay.
  2. The main problem I have with coming out and labelling it a ‘kid’s game’ however, is not just the Spy vs Spy premise, but the sheer un-likeableness (if I can invent that word) of the two protagonists.
  3. A formula that is very much out of date and bland by today’s standards.
  4. The lack of humour and pedestrian platform chores are reason enough to stick with the duo's entertaining comic-book adventures.
  5. If you’re thinking of buying this because it’s cheap, don’t bother, as even at its budget price it’s still not worth the money.
  6. In conclusion there is absolutely nothing to recommend about this Spy vs Spy.
