While Xbox One owners will discover the pleasure of golf sometime today, Sony's Playstation 4 is about to have players join the very selective club of secret agents and spies. Set during the Cold War, CounterSpy is a side-scroller which involves stealth and action. The game's aesthetics are particularly solid and the jazzy soundtrack and slick animations completes the good presentation. Going into cover changes the game's perspective, which becomes compulsory to take out all the enemies situated in the background, and the shooting mechanics, though not perfect, are well-crafted. AI is not always consistent however and exploration remains limited due to the small size of the randomly generated levels. No Metroid vibe to get from this one then, in spite of the presence of a different set of collectibles (ranging from money to weapon parts or abilities). Not the best indie game out there, but still fun to play nonetheless. Check out our 4 videos of the PS4 version. Note: The game is available on PS3, PS4 and PS Vita and it is cross-buy.
@Moonwalker: Agree about the jungle, was what looked best. Also agree about the foliage moving looked weird. But gameplay, characters, voice acting, shoehorned upgrade system, it's so generic. (10 Hours ago)
@asdfg: Some parts looked really good. Like when it morning comes and how the jungle looks. But the way foliage moves is odd though. Wish it was like Uncharted 4,haha. (10 Hours ago)
