New generation of Spy Hunter
3 Star Review   By member drakula - Jan 29, 2008   

Strengths: Decent gameplay. Fair storyline. Unlockable mini-games and contents.

Weakness: Substandard graphics and sounds. Choppy cinemas. Bad autosave points.

In Spy Hunter: Nowhere to Run, the player does not only takes control of the vehicle, Interceptor, but also takes control of the main character, Alex. There will be missions that require the player to interchange between controlling the Interceptor and Alex. It is different than the previous games and is fairly fun. The storyline is fairly decent but not very original, basically, Alex is trying to stop the villain from destroy the Spy Hunter organization and take the new Interceptor for world domination. After finishing the game once, mini-games/bonus levels and other stuffs will be unlocked. The surprising thing with this game is that the graphics is somewhat substandard, even for PS2. PS2 technology is fairly mature at the time of this game's release, however, the graphics looked dated, as if the developers did not even attempt to make efforts into the graphics. The sound effects in this game is just as bad, sometimes the sound effect would be loud and other times very quiet. The cinemas are choppy and looked like it was from Playstation 1. The autosave points are the weakest part of this game. There would be time that the game would autosave itself when Alex just face enemies, and as of the result, it would take some life bars and retries to skip the fate of game over. And there is no manual save option/points! Overall, the game is fairly decent. However, fans of Spy Hunter or the Rock might find this game more enjoyable.
