Good

Not a bad game

I'm a fan of Spyhunter since it's arcade days. Sadly the first console of Spyhunter wasn't great. But with this new one, it has redeemed itself. The car is decked out and sweet looking. The fact you get to fight outside the car is different but enjoyable. Body slamming & back breaking with The Rock is fun for awhile, the aiming isn't great, neither is the tracking of enemies. The graphics for the XBOX are nice. The music is decent. Just wish they had more car levels than person levels. Also would be nice to at least hint to how to defeat some of the bosses, going in blind gets you killed over a dozen times until you figure out what needs to be done.

But overall a definite rental game, just not buyable. So far I see no replay value on it. Just curious how the movie is going to be.

unlike my friend here, me and others enjoyed the first next-gen spyhunter, the second was a joke and to be honest this is a little. The on foot levels are as confusing as can be, the lock on is bad, he runs like he has a stick up his behind and hes slow, the hand to hand on the other hand was very enjoyable, i just wanted to bust fisticuffs with everybody but you barely got the chance do to the fact that everybody used guns and you would be dead in a matter of hits if you didnt use the tired old hide and shoot formation. The enemies are dumb, and it takes way to much to kill them, the camera is obviously an issue, ive died many times because of it alone!. The rock's fighting game, like i stated before is pretty good, you even get the chance to perform the rock bottom on watever soul unlucky enough to approach you. The driving is no better, the controls are confusing,i could barely see where my ammo was located and how to switch weapons, the other cars after you are annoying as heck!, they can blow your car up to easily, and if they slam into you it actually takes away life!, then theres the motorcycle, i cant express the hate i had for this thing, the controls were atrocious!, i died many times because of it, not to mention both the car and cycle are janky as heck, you will spend a good deal on the wall rather than on the road because your trying to get it straight but it wont, and if you dont use your tire spikes constantly you wouldnt get five feet without blowing up, terrible, but if you like the franchise go ahead and rent it, but if you irritate easily then stay away!

Before I rip this title a new one, I'd like to say that I'm a fan of both, Dwayne Johnson and the Spy Hunter series. With that being said, "let the bashing begin". First the camera and invert options drove me nuts. Second, the weapons and action functions were nearly useless. Third, you run like you're wearing lead shoes. Perhaps this game will be enjoyed by the younger casual gamer but anyone who is over 13 years old probably won't spend more than an hour with this title. I gave the driving portion of the game a 6 and the third person portion a 2. Overall, I gave this game a 4 rating.
