  1. I would suggest that anything you decide to work on in the future have online play. This type of game is made for online play, its just sad that that wasn't an option this time around.
  2. 75
    While the improved handling and graphics are a treat, Spy Hunter 2 feels like it's moving away from the original's inspiration, instead of towards it.
  3. 70
    Both exciting and disappointing, but mostly the latter. The frenetic action of driving and shooting is indeed here, replete with its minuses and plusses, and the game is harder and more challenging.
  4. 60
    May not be an outstanding game, but darn it if it isn't enjoyable. Its biggest fault is its lack of inspiration.
  5. Throw in an inconsistent targetting system and some of the ugliest texturing this side of the Sega Saturn, and it would seem that this title was created with the sole intent of hurting your feelings. [Feb 2004, p.109]
  6. Without the ability to transform when you want, Spy Hunter 2's confining missions are just too monotonous. [Feb 2004, p.106]
  7. If quality control was an issue, we doubt SpyHunter 2 would have passed the planning stage. This will be back in the box before you know it. [Mar 2004, p.117]

    Spyhunter 2 is a great game. It was a little hard to get used to the controls because I also have Spyhunter 1 and there are so many. One thing I did not like is how fast you can get killed in this game. For example, whenever you run out in front of maybe five enemy cars, you are dead no matter how good you are. I think that they made it too hard like one critic said. You may think that I am just bad at the game but I unlocked all the cheats, completed all the levels successfully, and fulfilled every objective in Spyhunter 1. This shows to you how hard Spyhunter 2 is for me to be calling it hard. I was wondering about something in the game though. Why would they have you train in one mission and then send u to Russia with nothing but machine guns and land mines inside a Nostra base in the next?? Another thing I don't like is that you have to start over from the beginning if you die. In the first Spyhunter game for X-box, it was the same thing but it was so hard to die that it wasn't a big deal like it is in Spyhunter 2. What is up with the new escape cycle?? If you were going to go out and buy a vehicle, would you want a tricycle with a motor or a motorcycle? Overall this game will succeed but I do not think it will become one of the greats. Expand
