Spy Hunter is an arcade racing game where fighting hostile cars is as important as driving fast. This is another part of the popular cycle started in 1983 on arcade machines. The game was developed by Traveller's Tales studio TT Fusion and published by Warner Bros. Interactive.
We play the role of a secret agent and our task is to crush the plans of a terrorist network wanting to take over the world. In accordance with the tradition of the series, the game allows you to sit behind the wheel of a sports car Interceptor, which has the ability to transform into an off-road car and a motorboat. This allows you to travel in any conditions and on any surface. The player-controlled vehicle is also equipped with a solid set of weapons. We choose which murder tools and gadgets to mount. In addition, the game is enhanced by an extensive system for improving individual vehicle parts.
The game consists of a series of role-playing missions, during which we receive specific tasks, often involving the elimination of specific cars. The missions are to some extent non-linear and, depending on our actions, we will be directed to one of several possible routes leading to our destination. For the first time in the history of the cycle we can use an unmanned probe that helps to plan attacks. The authors made sure that their game was very spectacular. Camera shows every crash detailed and, if necessary, slows down the time for a short while so that we can fully enjoy the damage done.
