Always worth checking out some reviews for a second reboot of a game before buying:

It boggles my mind how a major franchise could get a reboot and neither IGN nor any other major site took the time to review the Vita version

Your cousins must have terrible taste. I bought this from Gamestop last week during the $20 sale and it is literally one of the worst games I have played in years and certainly the worst Vita game I own. The vehicle literally shutters and has frame rate drops constantly and the collision detection seems broken. There are many other great discounted Vita games without subjecting them to this garbage.

Wow, that looks terrible. Seriously, why did this need to be on Vita? Look at the video. That screams PSP/DS/iOS.

Dude they're 4 & 7 yrs old & their moms generally get the movie games(the bad ones) so yeah they'll love it $20 well spent. There's always a market for these which is probably why BB is sold out LOL.
In no way am I folling myself to think this is game of the hour worthy for a reg. advanced gamer but I'm sure u know some kids that will play some of the wackest games for hours on end & love it to death. My lil cousins are these people.

I just don't think kids are dumb and considering how many other really good games for the Vita are now $20, recommending that anyone purchase this would be a huge mistake. I only picked it up because I have almost every Vita game with the exception of a few of the sports titles and I was a fan of the PS2 Spy Hunter game. This is really quite awful and downright unplayable.

I don't think they're dumb either but they're type of kids that remember the games from PS2 as well, love driving/shooting games & for whatever reason they get tons of enjoyment from games that we'd consider crappy.

I fully agree that a person thinking of buying the game should go into this with their eyes wide open & that's why I made sure to post the youtube stuff in the OP.

That's too bad. I have fond memories of playing the original Spy Hunter in the arcades. I don't ever recall reading about any good version on a console or portable. So much wasted potential.
