      • "Spy vehicle"


      • "Poor gameplay"

      Could be better, but it's not enough.

      I used to love going to the arcade and running back to this game. It just had an urgency that made the game play intensity so much fun. I can't say this is an absolutely perfect revamp, but it's a lot of fun. I've gotten to really enjoy the nostalgia and the new twists are nice. Graphics look great and I just love the lineup of games coming our way to the Vita this next 2 months. Finally the season of VITA games begins.

      This is a great game at its core, but it has low budget written all over it. The essential parts of the game that make it fun are intact, but elements such as menu design, graphics and cutscenes were mediocre at best. It is a spectacular, thrilling game with lots of replay value. It's unfortunate that it didn't get the support and promotion that it deserves. How ironic that a low budget game that no one bothered to care about is actually one of the few truly fun games now available on the Vita.

      As I was playing Spy hunter and finding myself, at times, frustrated with the controls or the level repetition I realized something. Playing this game made me feel like I was 9 or 10 years old again playing games on my SNES or Genesis. The controls weren't always the greatest and the levels not necessarily the most varied but I was having fun. Sometimes it was maddeningly frustrated fun, but fun nonetheless. Spy Hunter is a modern throwback to those old school games that let you have fun while seriously contemplating throwing your controller (or Vita in this case) against a wall.
