  1. Old school enthusiasts are virtually required to pick up a copy.

    The addition of the classic SpyHunter game from '83 kicks the game's score up a few notches just for the cool bonus. [May 2002, p.78]

    Action: Yup, this game is packed with it. [June 2002, p.120]
  4. Entertaining to play, had nice features, intuitive controls, and was a nice adaptation of the original, but it just lacked that extra something to score it as a "keeper."
  5. Extremely short. The multiplayer might help extend the life of the game a bit longer, but it’s simply not entertaining enough to hold your interest for very long.
  6. The game has enough to put a smile on your face, but it ends too soon. The game is good, but it’s way too short. Just when you really get into it, it’s over.

    I find Spy Hunter somewhat an exercise in memorization as you traverse each trecherous path discovering which weapon to use where. [May 2002, p.58]

    A fun game, but the sound is lacking and the realism of driving the various vehicles could be better.

    It's got an old school feel to it in that it's short and simple. The graphics are above average, and it's a game most anyone It's got an old school feel to it in that it's short and simple. The graphics are above average, and it's a game most anyone can get into. The memorization required is a bit annoying eventhough it does extend the life of things. Overall it's a solid game to add to your collection, but definately not a must-have. Expand
