5.0 out of 5 stars Spyhunter rocks
This one of the best PS2 games ever!! Good graphics and storyline, could be better if it had more levels, but that's the only downside. I've just read a review of one star for this saying "you only get one gun" who ever wrote it apparently only played through the training mission, since after that you get upgrades on the gun (10mm to 25mm to 50mm), missles (start with...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a good game at all!
I really hated this game for many reasons. Here are some pros and cons:
Pros:
- uhhhhhh... (i guess the graphics are ok)
Cons:
- No freedom. There is a track you have to follow, but you have to do missions and kill people along the way. Doesn't really make sense.
- No weapons. For a game with no freedom, like this one, you would think they would...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a good game at all!, Feb. 6 2004
This review is from: Spyhunter (Video Game)
I really hated this game for many reasons. Here are some pros and cons:
Pros:
- uhhhhhh... (i guess the graphics are ok)
Cons:
- No freedom. There is a track you have to follow, but you have to do missions and kill people along the way. Doesn't really make sense.
- No weapons. For a game with no freedom, like this one, you would think they would try to spice it up with some cool weapons or something. Nope. All you have is a machine gun and a regular gun.
- I don't get why your car turns into a motorcycle when your life is low.
- Controls are too complicated. While you are going really fast and trying to complete missions, you have to add more confusion switching your weapons. You would think only having two weapons, it would be easy to switch, but no.
This game really doesn't deserve to be a Playstation Greatest Hit. Sorry if I offended any SpyHunter fans.

This one of the best PS2 games ever!! Good graphics and storyline, could be better if it had more levels, but that's the only downside. I've just read a review of one star for this saying "you only get one gun" who ever wrote it apparently only played through the training mission, since after that you get upgrades on the gun (10mm to 25mm to 50mm), missles (start with unguided, then guided, and swarm(four at once)), emp(electromagnetic charge-don't get it either, unguided and guided), and rail gun (really powerful and cool laser thing, guided only), and for defensive you've got oil,smoke, and flamethrower to protect your tail end. The extras are a great bonus compared to spyhunter2 which didn't have hardly any and the ruined the spyhunter theme by saliva (see my review for spyhunter2, "12 year old gamer from Hays KS, USA. Anyone who considers themeselves a serious "game king" must beat this before rightfully proclaiming it, I've beat it 3 times in the past weak.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent game, not too complicated, Jan. 23 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Spyhunter (Video Game)
Great game, fun, exciting, good graphics- what else is there to say?
This is a great game for beginners, I just got it and have beat a few levels. I am kinda stuck on a level where you have to destroy these towers, but I have only gotten to try it once or twice. (My PS2 is getting repaired!) This is a very fun game and I highly recommend it. ...

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit restrained,'Grand Theft Auto-Vice City' much better!, Jan. 6 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Spyhunter (Video Game)
I tried the handling on this car,cycle,not as good as 'vice city'. You have to pass a lot of tests before you get to use the weapons. This game should've had a 'custom mode' to give you all 'cheats' unlocked,that would've made the game better. And you should've had the choice to cruise the city without blowing up or shooting up the place. The 'jet ski',cycle,is a su*ky idea,just not believable,should've been a 'car submarine' instead like 'The Spy who loved me'-James Bond,movie,would've been better. As for pursuit vehicles,should've been limited to regular cop cars,helocopters and other regular transportation. This game should've made you feel like Pierce Brosnan (007),but totally misses the point in being a spy. 'Machine guns',oil slick',smoke screen', great idea,other idea's a bit of over kill,and not believable. If anything I would've rated this game a '2 stars'......

4.0 out of 5 stars Spy Hunter Review, Dec 16 2003
This review is from: Spyhunter (Video Game)
This is a good game for people who like blowing stuff up. You start the game doing missions against NOSTRA (bad guy's) in the G-6155 Interceptor (nice car).Before every mission you are told what to do, but sometimes it's difficult to figure out how to do it. After completing a mission you get another weapon or a better weapon!. The controls are a bit difficult at first, but if you don't give up easy, this games for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars great!, Nov. 16 2003

This review is from: Spyhunter (Video Game)
This game is great for people who like driving game. This is not just driving game,but with the weapon. I think the game is fun. I have enjoyed it. When I bought the game, it was fun at first, but it got boring.(got stuck) but I tried hard to beat the game. and I beated it! The only problem for this game is that it is hard for beginners, has not very good graphics. Otherwise it is a good game. I recommand this game for people who are advanced player and like driving game.

5.0 out of 5 stars The acme of the arcade racer, April 4 2003
By 
"bluenote6251" (Spokane, WA United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Spyhunter (Video Game)
This game is everything the James Bond series isn't. You know those two or three driving missions in all the Bond games? The ones where you get to drive something hot like an Aston Martin with rockets and guided missiles? I always enjoy them, but there are so few that I play them to death and quickly tire of them. SpyHunter (now a few years old) is still the epitome of arcade, shoot-em-up racing. Your car, the Interceptor, has all the Bond-esque features you love (like smoke screens and machine guns) with the added bonus of MORE THAN TWO MISSIONS!! Fourteen missions still isn't much, but who's counting if the gameplay is good? (esp. if you add in the unlockable movies, multiplayer games and cheats)...P.S. The first level can seem daunting at first, since there's no Tutorial. But you must pass it! You must! Pass it, I say!

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible and Agonizing Gameplay, Feb. 24 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Spyhunter (Video Game)
Absolutely the worst racing game I have ever played. Takes forever to load and has extremely difficult and frustrating gameplay. Just NOT fun. Rented it for 5 days and returned it on the first day after 2 hours. The original SpyHunter was great fun to play, they should just rerelease the original and put this drink coaster in a waste bin where it belongs. Did I mention it was NOT fun at all? Go out and buy the original f-zero for the super nes, or F-zero X for the N64, or even Rumble Racing with cheesy graphics but fantastic gameplay for the PS2 which is a million billion zillion times better than this current incarnation of Spy Hunter.
