The Super Spy (Neo Geo AES / MVS review)

Developer: SNK
Publisher: SNK
Released: 1990

The Super Spy is a first-person action game that was later released on the Neo Geo CD (1996).

+ The huge enemy sprites and cool scaling effects are impressive, and the destructible environments are a great touch.

+ Takes several hours to beat, so there's plenty of value for money, and your progress can be saved for a later date.

+ The NPCs help to advance the story and invest you into the narrative / mission at hand.

+ The buildings are an absolute blast to traverse and they create a foreboding atmosphere that feels dangerous.

- It's a shame that your weapons are severely limited, as the game is at its best when you have pistol and machine gun ammo.

- You're typically very under-powered and as a result combat becomes repetitive and quickly starts to grow tiresome.

- Respawning enemies in previously cleared sections is highly annoying and they make the gameplay drag.
