So you've decided to sneak around a highly suspect security company headquarters. You will need the following tools: one extra large flower pot (preferably containing a ficus tree or similar), one infinitely extensible length of rope and one fedora hat. Why the hat? Because it looks cool. Now you're ready for some stealth action in Spy 2 by Wildcat Games, and you're trying to figure out just what nefarious schemes are unfolding behind the nondescript front of Live Inc. Use the [arrow] or [WASD] keys to walk, and up or [W] to interact with objects. Don't get spotted by security cameras and guards or you'll get busted!
Our protagonist isn't exactly James Bond, so there are no gadgets or lasers or gadgets with lasers. We're doing things old-school here – it's mostly lying in wait and tiptoeing around. This might sound a bit slow, but Spy 2 is packed with short & sweet stages and introduces enough new elements to keep you entertained and challenged. And what better way to complement a stealth game than with a grey/white minimalistic setting? The oh so smooth visuals set the tone perfectly and will undoubtedly get you in a noire mood. The classy graphics and the jazzy music clash a little with two relatively risque adult images which pop up as you're doin' your spyin' and mindin' your own business, but they can be chalked up to the game's quirky sense of humour. The real problem with Spy 2 is that it's too short; it pretty much ends just as you really start warming up and that's simply not fair. It's easy to see that a game like this one could have squeezed in at least ten more levels without breaking a sweat, so it's a pity to see it end so quickly, and in a somewhat deus-ex-machina manner. Still, it will amuse you with its silly ways and give you your quick action fix for the day, and sometimes that's all you need.
