Spy Hunter retains a quality that few games do, in that it makes the player come back for more, even after several decades of gaming and after unveiling all its secrets. It's actually still one of my most played games.
It's also one of the best conversions ever on the Spectrum, and managing to be better than the original is quite a feat.
There isn't much explaining to do about how it plays, just drive your car/boat as far as you can, gathering points and avoid being killed. I would certainly rated it with a 5 if only there was more to the game than just the levels we all know.
