For those who enjoy James Bond movies only for the cool gadgets, Spyhunter 2 will put you into one that even 007 couldn't pass up. This latest Spyhunter once again focuses on battling your enemies using the G-8155 Interceptor with enough firepower to take out entire armies. Similar to the last [Spyhunter], there have been a number of tweaks and minor improvements that make it at least as entertaining as the last release, just not as fresh.
Spyhunter 2 follows a common spy theme about averting world domination by foiling some super-villain's evil plans in addition to the mysterious female vital to any spy story. The gameplay is straightforward as you'll drive the Interceptor in various environments including water, offroad, and through snow, blasting enemies that get in the way of achieving your objectives. That generally sums up the majority of the game structure which can get dry but there are a few features included to mix things up. There are numerous new weapons to pick up for instance which can be customized on the Interceptor and other features like bosses that are also included to keep you on your toes.
Spyhunter 2 isn't ground breaking but does a good job executing the basics. The controls for instance are easy to use and the AI is good enough to keep the enemies from being sitting ducks but not impossible to destroy. The graphics and audio also give a mostly solid performance with great visual explosions and sound effects but lacking the overall polish other games have achieved. Issues like poor textures make a large difference in game quality especially for first and third person shooters and Spyhunter 2 misses the mark a number of times.
If you enjoyed Spyhunter, this is more of the same bringing back the majority of the gameplay and not offering much new. That's not to say it's not worth playing, as it's a well balanced game that fans of 007 or third person shooters will enjoy and won't be satisfied by a rental.
