Agent Intercept is an extremely accessible game, but that's not to say it doesn't deliver some thrills and spills. This modern, Spy Hunter-esque title is an easy breezy good time that aims to put a smile on your face, and we'd say that's mission accomplished.
Gameplay is very basic; you simply steer, boost and drift with L2, and use weapon pickups with R2. This applies to whichever state your transforming vehicles is in — car, boat, or plane. Such simple controls mean the emphasis is on score-chasing and visual bombast. Every level has some replayability — they give you optional objectives to meet, and you're encouraged to keep a combo multiplier alive to set a high score. Unfortunately there are many points where it feels impossible to keep that combo up for very long with a fairly fast time limit between stunts.
As for spectacle, the short campaign ramps things up with some brilliantly over-the-top scenarios to enjoy. Along the way, you'll use rockets, machine gun fire, and other weapons to take down other vehicles, all while drifting around bends, jumping over ramps, and boosting non-stop. It's easy, and kinda shallow, but it's great fun while it lasts.
Side missions and a score attack mode with leaderboards are available once you're done with the Campaign and its daft story. These provide a little more challenge, but there's only so much mileage to get from what is quite a concise game. It's not going to last you that long, then, but it fills that time with stylish, flashy fun that makes you feel like an unstoppable agent.
This game looks so fun, I'm definitely going to get it at some point.
"Surprisingly good DualSense support" - Really - how so? Seems like left/right/accelerate and fire?
@sanderson72 I mean it's not the BEST DualSense support but it's better than I was expecting from the game. Has some good rumbles when you collide with other cars, and there's a bit of effort put into the triggers. Some pressure when you squeeze down for boost, and trigger-pulling effects when firing weapons. It's nothing crazy but I wasn't expecting anything
I had my eye on this for a while then realized it's £16 for what boils down to a port of a mobile game. It's on the Wishlist for a deep deep sale. The soundtrack sounds great from the gameplay videos i've seen.
Great review! Will absolutely be getting this someday but alas, can't squeeze it in right now, which is a shame, as I'd love to show support for more spy-themed games. There simply aren't enough of 'em!
Want this game, but price is a bit much. Will wait for sale.
Indeed, it screams mobile, but at at tripple the price.
@Quintumply And that for kind of effort put the game thats not even that expensive i can respect that.
It’s been out for months now on Apple Arcade
