Spy Hunter offers a challenging and old-school arcade experience that ought to appeal to fans of retro combat racers. The focus here is squarely on action and speed, with a small but satisfying between-mission dash of RPG-style growth and upgrades. It'd be nice if strategy weighed in a little more -- mission success sometimes seems to be at the mercy of luck -- but the overall experience is recommendable.

Sadly, the action is marred by below average presentation. The vehicles, environments, and special effects are all pretty low fidelity, especially in the case of the Vita version, which has plenty of processing power. Still, Vita and 3DS owners starved for a little road action may squeak out enough fun to make it worth the investment.
