    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.
  2. They made it just too hard in some places. When I am stuck on a level for as long as I was, that's too hard. When you have to start from the beginning of a level after almost beating it, and the level is almost 7 minutes long; that is too hard.
  3. 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.

    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 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. Full Review »
