      An entertaining driving game with some novel features

      Spyhunter is a driving game for the Playstation 2 developed by Midway Games in 2001. It is a remake of the classic arcade game of the same name and upgrades it to a 3D format with a more involving story. In the arcade game you drive a car fitted with all kinds of weapons and gadgets and you must drive continuously taking out enemies and avoiding causing harm to civilians. The PS2 game takes this to the next level, changing it from an arcade style game to a more conventional game with a behind the car view and proper storyline.

      The game follows a James Bond-esque storyline, which pits you up against an evil terrorist organisation known as Nostra who are plotting to drain the world of its power. Throughout the game, you drive the G-6155 Interceptor, with its numerous weapons such as missilies and machine gun and gadgets including oil slick and smoke screen. Each mission has its own objective which generally involving destroying a piece of Nostra equipment such a vehicle or control tower. These missions take you across the globe to locations such as Venice, Germany and Panama.

      The game starts off incredibly entertaining, with the various gadgets and weapons an exciting novelty. This soon wears off a little bit but the game is consistently exciting, with fast-paced gameplay and numerous jumps and stunts for you to perform throughout each level. The graphics are quite good with a great variety of locations and a lot of intricate detail rendered. The game play is very good with fluid driving movement and controls that are easy to get to grips with. It is a challenging game, as its fast pace often means you have to rely on quick reflexes and this makes it all the more exciting. Usually I find action games which solely consist of driving levels to be a little boring, but I did not find thay to be the case with Spyhunter, which is consistently exciting. The plot is fairly weak, but this is not the main focus of the game. It is all about the gameplay with the various weapons and gadgets you have and the stunts you perform throughout the level. Overall it is avery entertaining game and I recommend it to anyone who has not yet played it.

      great retro driving thriller

      Get behind the wheel of the G-6155 Interceptor for high-speed, mission-based racing in exotic locales. As the Spy Hunter, you are relentlessly pursued by hordes of air, ground and water enemies as you battle to accomplish your missions and save the world from the mind of a madman.

      A remake of the arcade classic, Spy Hunter boasts ultra-realistic 3D graphics, real-world locales and the only vehicle capable of morphing into a boat, jet ski or motorcycle. This is a breath of fresh air.

      Explosive weaponry and impressive defensive mechanisms combine with intense speed and strategy to distinguish Spy Hunter from routine combat racers and traditional action racing games.
      This is a great game for children but not to young as it is quite violent-- with all the destruction and all!lol

        I first bought this game because it was in a 2 4 1 deal at woolworths and i thought it looked cool i will explain the gd and bad things about it in my review. Have you ever played the retro game game classic? the one where you drove a little car that fired machine guns, and you could drive into the back of a little van to get refuelled and extra weapons? well this is the ps2 remake of that wicked old game! yep, all the gameplay from the original is still here, it's simple, you drive through a poorly rendered 3d track, shooting bad guys with the machine guns on the front of your very average looking sports car, which has the ability to turn into other vehicles in true james bond style. the truck is in there, the weapons upgrades are intact, and the hoardes of baddies to kill are in full effect. the prob is it is a slow start at the beginning on the first level but as you get into it you slowly aquire new guns and gadgets i think the sweetest part is when you go onto water and there is a slow motion video of your car changing into a speed boat the wheel fold in and wings come out the side truely for james bond games but on spy hunter the first training level is corny becaue you have to shoot down wooden targets and launch trackers on2 boats. However once the training levels are over you have to chase bad guys and blow up their cars and bikes you can use an oil slick to send the cars behind spinning out of control behind you an ok but not one of my favourites

        Remember the classic arcade game Spyhunter? The one where you drove a little car that fired machine guns, and you could drive into the back of a little van to get refuelled and extra weapons? Well this is the PS2 remake of that wicked old game! Yep, all the gameplay from the original is still here, it's simple, you drive through a beautifully rendered 3d track, shooting bad guys with the machine guns on the front of your very nice looking sports car, which has the ability to turn into other vehicles in true James Bond style. The truck is in there, the weapons upgrades are intact, and the hoardes of baddies to kill are in full effect. The graphics bear a strong resemblence to the locations used in Bond films too, which is a good thing, it lets you imagine you are a secret agent racing to complete your objective, which changes from level to level. Visually it's stunning, making good use of the PS2 grahpics hardware to provide a very fast moving, realistic environment The game is set out in a classic style, complete a level to move on to the next, obtaining various objectives along the way. You have to do each level a few times to get a feel for it, then you can sail through trying to beat your best times as you get better. Each level is slightly harder than the last, you should have a hard time beating the last few levels. I certainly did. But don't expect this game to last a lifetime like Gran Turismo 3, make no mistake, this is a quick fun arcade game and doesn't try to be anythig else. Realisticly you are looking at a week or so to complete it, but it's a game you can keep coming back to as it's just so much fun to play and you can try and beat your best scores and times. The game rewards such persistence, opening up extra bonus levels, weapons and vehicles when you totally complete each section. Overall this is a fab game, really good fun.
