Spy vs. Spy is a game with plenty of great ideas; it's just a shame that so many of them are executed so badly. That said, the game isn't a total failure, there is some fun to be had for the £19.99 budget price, and it's a lot better then many other cheap titles on the market right now.
I think, therefore, I have to conclude it is a title aimed at the younger market, certainly there are only two options – single or multi player game, with single having the tweaked options of a story or modern/classic effort. It’s not a deep choice and nothing to captivate the attention in these days of FPS room affairs or intriguing puzzle platformers. The main problem I have with coming out and labelling it a ‘kid’s game’ however, is not just the Spy vs Spy premise, but the sheer un-likeableness (if I can invent that word) of the two protagonists.
Spy Vs Spy aurait pu être très sympa s'il n'était pas aussi linéaire, court et répétitif. Il est aussi très dommage que l'utilisation des pièges soit aussi imposée : on manque de liberté et on est obligé de poser les chausse-trappes aux quelques endroits prévus à cet effet. L'interaction avec les décors n'est donc pas assez poussée. Dernier écueil, le niveau de difficulté est mal réglé ce qui pourra décourager certains joueurs devant des passages très délicats. Au final, on se retrouve en présence d'un jeu pas foncièrement mauvais, mais vraiment trop moyen pour passionner les foules.
The lack of humour and pedestrian platform chores are reason enough to stick with the duo's entertaining comic-book adventures.
There really isn't anything that can be added. The game has a budget release, but don't let the cheap price tag fool you - even for twenty notes it's a terrible rip-off. The visuals are simple and uninspired and the sound matches it in its mediocrity. Die hard fans might be able to manage a few minutes of enjoyment from the game, but you'd be better off calling on fond memories. To coin a phrase from the days of magazines of the original Spy vs Spy era: "Avoid like the plague."
