Back in the day Spy Hunter was one amazing and impressive game. It has received a reboot in 2012 on the Nintendo 3DS and PS Vita. I am reviewing the Nintendo 3DS version of Spy Hunter. The enjoyment of 3D on a handheld is in my grasp. Yes I intended to use that pun.

Spy Hunter at its core is about a spy trying to get away from somewhere. The enemy has an unlimited amount of vehicles to throw at us. We only have a certain amount of life. Our vehicle has numerous weapons we can use to dispatch these bad guys. We can shoot them with missiles, blind them with a blast, use machine guns, and more.

The production value of Spy Hunter is very high. The story is told by our contacts who give us instructions on our missions. They will chastise us for doing our own thing. Their language could use some assistance in certain portions of Spy Hunter. The voice acting is adequate.

The 3D looks okay in Spy Hunter on the Nintendo 3DS. We are generally going away from the camera so the depth element works well. Like seeing a truck way off in the distance. The visual effects when we go into the water is fantastic. I went into the water every opportunity I was given.

The enemies will try and lay traps in front of the player in Spy Hunter. The game will pause where we are, and the camera will advance to show us the trap. It will focus briefly on ways we can avoid the traps. This is a wonderful feature for players that are paying attention to detail.

The controls in Spy Hunter are a bit too loose for me. I could be flying down narrow corridors, and wind up front first into one of the side walls. Getting out required backing up. The one plus to this is it gave me a respite from the enemy vehicles attacks. Which I was always thankful for.

All in all Spy Hunter is a great reboot to an old franchise. There are some things I would love to see improved in any sequels - like the controls and language. Many of the vehicles look the same in Spy Hunter so the violence does get boring.
