    A mixture between action and stealth with charm and a lot of fun. If you like spies, just try it.

    All too often you'll be screwed not by stealth slip-ups, but by twitchy, inconsistent AI and the odd clipping glitch. If you can handle that, then this is pretty damn fun. [Nov 2014, p.78]
  3. Counterspy's scrappiness makes anything beyond [a few hours of fun] rather dicey. [Nov 2014, p.90]

    Really enjoyable at the beginning, but it goes down fast. The errors due to random map generation and its zero replayability make the 12,99 € better spent on other summer offers like Rogue Legacy or Hohokum.

    It may provide fast gameplay and charming visuals, but unfortunately the lack of depth and some notable frame rate issues make it difficult to recommend CounterSpy.

    the cold war just got hot

    counterspy is a fun little "rouge-like" game that has you making your way from start to finish without raising the defcon or for that matter dying. once the defcon goes to high it's a game over and the world explodes.

    the games visual appeal is very unique and the graphics hold up considerably. the best part of the game is as the game progresses it gets increasingly difficult, introducing harder enemies and levels getting longer

    all in all, a good game for a quick spy fix
