Spy Hunter: Nowhere to Run

Apt when you consider a score of 52% from 5 reviews on Metacritic.com

Reviews Summary
Unfortunately the execution just wasn't there
More a hastle than a pleasure, control system is weak
Glitches, poor controls, shabby visuals
Playing as the rock is pretty dang fun...(?) but woefully underused
"been there done that" feeling, cheesy bond-like storyline
Gameplay mechanics are basic and repetitive

I love spyhunter.
I love the rock.

But why do I have an ugly feeling that not even these elements will reawaken the game series. Just stick with the basics like you did with the first Spyhunter.

you think i'd learn by now, move game tie-in and all, why seek to change what worked so well I will never know, don't they playtest before release?

Not really, no.

And the first Spyhunter wasn't such a gem y'know. It is fondly remebered of course, but so are lots of things from the 80s...
