Summary

who doesn't like spy hunter!?!

The Good

it goes really fast. almost too fast, but it's fun and hypnotic, as all good games are. hard to believe the arcade version came out two decades ago.

The Bad

it can't keep my attention for more than a few minutes, since nothing new ever happens. even when you get to the boathouse all that changes is that you're driving on a blue background instead of grey.

The Bottom Line

a simplistic racing game that's a lot of fun but that gets boring very quickly.
