Spy Hunter (Video Game Review)
Players will start out in the weaponized super car and travel through a series of missions where they are tasked with defeating enemies and avoiding numerous hazards. The main purpose of the video game is to drive faster than your opponents and if you can’t then you have an arsenal of weapons to help you out. Spy Hunter’s gameplay is a chaotic blast of entertainment and utilizes the player’s creative strategy to open up the game’s true potential. Players have the chance to unlock and upgrade their weapons which adds great replay value to an already entertaining game. You start the game off with four main weapons, and as the game progresses more weapons become available. Weapons are part of the game’s appeal ranging all the way from saw blades to explosions.
Controls are simple, and players can use the R and L buttons to accelerate and slow down. The face buttons are then use for releasing your arsenal of bad-ass weaponry onto your opponents. Spy Hunter has tight and precise controls that all the player to readjust their strategy at any point in the game and to dodge their opponents with ease. The video game has taken everything that we loved from the arcade titles and added a few nice touches to make it an overall great experience. There are tons of features that have been added such as the air support drone, where players can watch the chaos from above and easily plan their next move. The storyline is simple and serves its purpose. Players can rack up several achievements to add more of a challenge to each level, and there are ton of upgrades to give that extra motivation throughout the game.
Spy Hunter is a great title that is fun for any PS Vita owner. The video game offers a fresh new take on an already loved classic. The intense soundtrack is composed by Grammy-award nominated Ryan Shore and helps the game progress nicely along with its upgraded graphics. The weapons take the game to a whole new level of destruction, and fans will get all the chance to once again relive all the car chase excitement from their very own home!
