Great, I guess.

Wait, never mind, the drop just hit. I'm now kind of on board.

This looks like one of those General Auto Insurance commercials on crack.

"Guys, what if we made the Aventador look ugly as fuck, and then put guns on it?"

No thanks.

I played one of these games on PS2. That was fun. This might be fun too. I hope it is.

Spyhunter is a good franchise that you could probably make into a really fun re-imagined downloadable title. They should do that. Someone make me the president of whoever is making this.

They shoulda put in futuristic weapons and stuff like a cloaking device for a few seconds or homing missiles or calling down an orbital strike from a satellite. Adding a co-driver in the passenger seat that sits out the window with a shotgun whilst shooting other drivers in the face woulda been cool too.

I expect the in-game soundtrack to be all wobble bass and sick drops, all the time.

I vaguely remember playing Spy Hunter on the Gamecube, it was kinda fun. This trailer looks like crap though, except for the music.

Posted by Rasmoss

Nostalgia overload! I played Spy Hunter on the ZX Spectrum. That music!

Posted by Eribuster

This might be good fun. The exaggerated designs look nicely silly. Hope they go a bit further down that road.

Will this one have the rock in it?

No Dwayne Johnson, no sale.

Quality is so bad with the CG it looks like a student movie.

Posted by RedDeathZero

Damn, if I'm not getting this for the fact that Spy Hunter is back, then I'm defiantly getting it for the music. Reboot of retro game + badass dubstep music = tons of fun.

Posted by JackSukeru

I recognize that sound effect from 0:22, I think it was both in Jet Force Gemini and Metroid Prime.

I can't smell what this reboot is cooking. How many more games do we need that are called "Spy Hunter"?

Also, chalk up another video game that uses Agency as a font.

Maybe they couldent afford the license for "Viper".

Don't have a great feeling about this game, but I sure hope it's good.

Posted by dragonboss

My friend had this game on PS2 when it first came out and thought it was mediocre then and this looks mediocre now, only with newer graphics and dubstep. Companies always makign remakes and sequels of stuff nobody has been complainign about or asking for, why? Since the 360 and PS3 came out and even before people were asking for games like FFVII and Chrono Trigger to be remade, even a new Megaman X, but we get things like FFXIII-2 and NG3. Seriously though did anyone really ask for another of the Spy Hunter games to be made? (A bit of a rant, but still...)

Kind of a low-tech trailer, but fun-looking nonetheless. I'm sure TT Fusion will put out a great game - they've been an underrated developer for YEARS (only really getting famous for their LEGO games, when they've been knocking out solid titles since the Genesis/SNES days). If it plays like the PS2 Spy Hunter, I'm totally onboard. Loved that game.

Oh, and also, it's AWESOME to see Warner Bros. recognize some of their OTHER Midway games. Y'know, besides Mortal Kombat? It's about time we started seeing new Spy Hunters...hopefully other IP like Gauntlet and Defender will not be far behind (Gauntlet Legends was awesome, and the Gamecube Defender was pretty cool. Both deserve sequels)

Gah, for some reason I expected a Spy vs. Spy reboot... I'm dissapointed.

Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam

Forget which one it was, but the PS2 Spy Hunter game that I played was pretty fucking entertaining. Doesn't really matter here, though, since I don't have a handheld.

Posted by tastydeadbodies

i played the hell out of Spy Hunter on the NES. I hope this one will be better than the PS2/GC/XBOX versions

Posted by kalmis

What a rubbish trailer. At least they got the theme from Peter Gunn song if nothing else

Posted by KemoSabe

Arcade / C64 for me

Posted by djames216

The version of Spy Hunter that I originally played was for the ZX Spectrum. I think it was a half-decent version of the game.

This trailer looks terrible. No game-play footage and crappy CGI that looks ripped out of the 90s. It's worthy of my Trailer Trash list. I also miss the classic overhead perspective.

Posted by mr_shoeless

I like the classic arcade Spy Hunter; gimme that for $5 and I'm all set. But I hated the PS2 remake, and that's what this looks like.

Posted by believer258

I played the Gamecube version way back when. I remember thinking it was really fun.

Posted by Dain22

The CGI quality looked like a student project, but at least the music was fun.

Posted by Axiomatic

I just want this to be good, I know I'm hoping for a lot here but if this doesn't work out then I'm stuck hoping for a Chase H.Q. update and that lacks the Peter Gunn theme.

Posted by Cozmicaztaway

Cool, i was thinking about Spy Hunter recently. I mean, fast cars and guns, that has a ton of potential.

And the trailer is if nothing else pretty funny.@dragonboss said:

Guilty! The concept has potential, despite the original pretty much just being an admittedly great top down shooter.

This might sound trollish but I don't like Spy Hunter.

Posted by fluxbit

Thanks for surfacing my fond memories of Spy Hunter. That game was fun and frustrating! Good times.

Posted by chilipeppersman

looks fun dont hate

Posted by MeatSim

The car should be blaring out Dubstep at all times.

Posted by LordAndrew

Is this a tie-in for another Spy Hunter movie that doesn't exist?

Posted by Blackout62

I am amazed after all these years someone hadn't already made a dubstep version of the Peter Gunn theme.

*Headbobs*

The double entendre car ad was a neat idea for the trailer, but I'm still concerned for the overall quality of the game when the trailer looked so 1999.

I know TT Fusion isn't the biggest of developers and they only have so many resources to give to making promotional videos, but like others have said, it did sorta look like a student project, and didn't say much about the mechanics or focus of the game.

If the game just turns out to be a cheap little arcade game, what's wrong with using cheesy 90s CG? So long as we know what to blow up, it'll be fun.
