The 1987 Nintendo Entertainment System conversion of Spy Hunter was handled by Sunsoft and is an excellent addition to the Spy Hunter family.
In some respects this is better than the arcade original, because it’s not quite so mind-bendingly difficult…
That said: it takes a lot of effort to get to the speedboat section, which I think would put it out of reach of many gamers.
Otherwise: all the expected Spy Hunter features are there: vertically-scrolling split roads, switchblade wheels on enemy cars, chasing helicopters, blindingly fast speeds, and unique ‘van docking’ to get weapons upgrades.
NES Spy Hunter is well worth a play if you’re a fan of the original or just like mad driving games.
