***** by BoatHouse. Comment: "Classic game. Quick story: My friend and I worked at the same ice cream shop in high school. When the owner wanted to put a couple of games in the store, we successfully lobbied him to get Spy Hunter. We then spent the whole summer alternating: One guy worked while the other played a dollar's worth of Spy Hunter." 2005-02-05 22:53:18Z

***** by crappie. Comment: "I LOVED THIS GAME!!! IMHO, it was the most exciting "driver" type of video game EVER! No other driving style of game could touch it for action and it always seemed like you were (if you'll pardon the pun) "driving" by the seat of your pants. Excellent game play with a nice controller with good touch buttons for all of your James Bond-like gadgets. Enemies in front? No problem, blow 'em away! Being followed? No problem, oil slick the bastards or lay on the smoke. Bomb dropping helicopter pissing you off? Zing his ass with surface to air missiles! I LOVE IT! I also liked the varying surfaces to drive on, including ice and sliding over into the boat. The fire on the water via the "oil" button was a great touch... man, I miss junior high for great games like this :P" 2005-04-13 03:41:12Z
