Spy Hunter, released on 3DS and PSV, is an arcade racing game in which we fight against enemy cars while driving at a lightning-fast speed. This is the next installment of the popular series that started in 1983 on arcades. The project was developed by Traveller's Tales studio TT Fusion, and the publisher was Warner Bros. Interactive.
We play the role of a secret agent and our task is to thwart the plans of a terrorist network that wants to take over the world. According to 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 motorboat. This allows you to travel in any conditions and on any surface. Our machine is also equipped with a solid set of weapons. We choose which tools and gadgets to install. The game is also diversified by an extensive system of improving individual parts of the vehicle.
The game consists of a series of fictional missions, during which we receive specific tasks to complete, often consisting of eliminating specific cars. The missions themselves are to some extent non-linear and depending on our actions, we will be directed to one of several possible routes leading to the destination. For the first time in the history of the series, we can use an unmanned probe to help plan attacks. The authors made sure that their game was spectacular. The detailed camera shows every crash and, if necessary, slows down the time for a short while so that we can fully enjoy the damage caused.
