  • Summary: Embittered rivals White Spy and Black Spy return for more comical sabotage in this action-espionage game based on the characters made famous in MAD Magazine. Your mission is to retrieve top-secret information, while trying to outwit and outlast up to three friends (or enemies). Outlandish traps and hazards abound. Broadband networked and split screen multiplayer options allow players to outwit three of your best friends...or worst enemies. Unlock features such as disguises, levels, weapons, and items. In Mod-A-Spy Mode, go deep undercover donning the unlockable disguises and fooling your foolish opponents. Eight Game Modes including: Modern, Classic, Story and 5 multiplayer modes such as Death Match, Armed and Loaded, Get Mad, Last Man Standing and Run and Gun. Expand

    Vicious Cycle did an excellent job in recreating the comic in a video game, too bad there's only one safe house to spawn from.
  2. A great little game which mirrors Mad Magazine characters perfectly. It's not groundbreaking, but it's fun, and that's the main key to remember.
  3. With a few friends (or online), you may have some fun for a time, but more than likely its clunky controls and limited offerings will quickly become a bore.
  4. Suffers from a very pedestrian single player game that lacks the humour of the comic on which it's based, which is very disappointing considering how funny and clever they often were. Multiplayer is more fun, and is a good game for weekend hire.

    The one bit about Spy vs. Spy that really shines is the presentation. Each level looks radically different than the last, and comes complete with its own, unique challenges.
  6. 45
    The controls aren't terrible, but the basic gameplay of story mode is so bland that it is difficult to stay interested in it for more than five minutes.
  7. 23
    Overall, after playing this game one time through (ugh, tell me about it), I can confidentially say that I will never play this game ever again and never look back. This game is awful, plain and simple.

    I dont care what the critics said. I thought this game was fun although it could of been truer to Antonio Prohias' orginal comic.
