Spy Hunter, PC

Spy Hunter for PC MS-DOS is unfortunately a terrible stinker of a video game.

I can forgive the four-colour, CGA graphics, but I can’t forgive the repetitive, dull gameplay and the unresponsive controls.

Other than the scrolling road and the cars and helicopters there is very little here that actually represents the classic original. Other deviations include: the boat section being compulsory, and the boat itself looking like a Pac-Man ghost… There’s so much wrong with this conversion that you have to wonder if the programmer gave even the slightest care about what he was doing.

The DOS version of Spy Hunter was developed by Sega and released in 1984. Shame on them for releasing such dross.
