Overall, this is a game that shouldn't be taken too seriously, but can be quite a bit of fun. It's hardly innovative - it really doesn't bring much new to the genre. But what it does do here is reasonably solid, and is definitely a worthy remake of a classic arcade title - and that's a lot more than other "revival" titles have going for them. If you were a fan of the old game, or just want to see what it's about, don't hesitate to give it a go. It's no "must-have", but if you're in need of a game and haven't tried it yet, it's worth a look.

Spy Hunter is a remake of the old game we all know and love. The game sets you behind the wheel of an incredible vehicle with some interesting choices in weaponry. The graphics are stunning and offer a plethora of visuals to keep your eyes happy. The sound track fits the theme of driving really fast trying to complete your objects. The game play, unfortunately, doesn’t offer as much as the visuals or audio.

Though there was nothing groundbreaking about it, the original PlayStation 2 version of Spy Hunter was a pleasant surprise simply because it was a capable update of the classic Spy Hunter formula. Even in a no-frills package, had it been faithfully ported to the PC, Spy Hunter would still be pretty entertaining--even two years later. But in its current state, Spy Hunter for the PC is a very modest arcade driving game that's simply not worth playing.

Spyhunter erschien vor drei Jahren für die PlayStation 2. Das ist lange her - zu lange. Ihre Rolle ist die eines James-Bond-Rennfahrers, der in einem Mehrzweck-Flitzer die Welt vor Terroristen rettet: In 14 Missionen geben Sie Vollgas und weichen Hindernissen aus, springen mittels Schanzen, schießen Lenkraketen auf böse Buben und aktivie-ren Kontrollpunkte - und das alles unter Zeitdruck!

Midway wühlt ganz tief in der Spiele-Mottenkiste und präsentiert eine Neuauflage des C64-Klassikers Spy Hunter von 1984. Mit einem Amphibienfahrzeug heizen Sie über lineare Kurse und ballern per Bord-MG oder Rakaeten auf Spione. Recht flotte, auf Dauer aber eintönige Action mit grauenvoller Grafik. Nur für Fans.

На длинную череду минусов SH приходятся редчайшие плюсы: красивые, чересчур короткие ролики между миссиями и музыка — классический (1983 г.) саундтрек в современном исполнении согреет сердце каждого любителя аркад. В основной же массе все очень ненатурально, скучно и скоротечно; сегодня игра выглядит даже старше своего седовласого предшественника.

While the problems I experienced are certainly fun killers, there are some things to like. This is, after all, a port of a very enjoyable game. If you don't mind jumping through a few hoops to get it running and can look past the weird cases of "consolitis" noted above, the game itself can be enjoyable. Although the difficulty level varies wildly and it's all fairly short, it's a good ride. The problem is that it's about two years late, and even for a street price of $30, it still seems like a bit much when the console versions which now retail for $10 less don't suffer many of these issues, and there are so many other superior driving games available this year on the PC.

Petit jeu d'arcade honnête sur console, Spy Hunter, victime d'un portage scandaleux ne respectant aucunement les joueurs et les laissant seuls face au massacre, fait figure désormais de soft mauvais accusant un âge trop canonique pour pouvoir s'imposer. Il est incompréhensible de gâcher de l'argent (pas beaucoup visiblement) pour adapter un jeu de façon si mauvaise. Désolé Spy Hunter, ce n'est pas de ta faute, juste un dommage collatéral.
