  1. And while the graphics are fun, the translation into 3D has been totally mishandled and lost the whole appeal of the gameplay.
  2. A formula that is very much out of date and bland by today’s standards.
  3. 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.
  4. In the end, the acid test for a remake such as this really has to be whether you’d rather play it over the original. Sadly, even at a budget price, there’s little here worth your time, let alone your cash, meaning that we’d take the NES or C64 version every time.
  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. The lack of humour and pedestrian platform chores are reason enough to stick with the duo's entertaining comic-book adventures.
  7. In conclusion there is absolutely nothing to recommend about this Spy vs Spy.
