YMMV / SPY Fox

  • Awesome Music: Dry Cereal has the Car Chase, which is a really awesome song but gets mostly drowned about because of all the noise the car makes. And most of the Operation Ozone tracks found on the bowling alley's jukebox which can be played on a CD player as the game disc doubles as an audio CD.
  • Broken Base: Which English version is better? The Get Smart-styled original or the James Bond-styled British dub?
  • Do Not Do This Cool Thing: In Some Assembly Required, Fox has to make a fake ID to get into a restricted area. Before doing so, he reminds the player that only spies can make fake ID's and only when they're on a case.
  • Foe Yay: Russian Blue, William the Kid's dragon, openly flirts with Spy Fox and dances with him during the tango.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Back when these games first came out, Monkey Penny was a great Punny Name for a spy spoof featuring a cast of Funny Animals. However, with Skyfall reintroducing Moneypenny to the James Bond series as a black woman, it becomes a little uncormfortable, given that comparing blacks to apes and monkeys has often been used as a racist insult.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
  • Most Wonderful Sound: A short background music appears whenever Spy Fox solved a puzzle.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The Dummied Out death scene in Some Assembly Required. It's both very jarring incredibly dark for the setting, which is likely why it was cut. It's too bad, since it's a great shoutout to the Dragon's Lair games.
  • Padding: The most common complaint with Hold The Mustard.
  • Polished Port: The Wii Re-Release of Dry Cereal...
    • Porting Disaster: ...which most people would criticize because of it's fast frame rate.
  • That One Level: Cheese Chase's Level 75, Carnival of Clouds. It's riddled with narrow pathways that are all one hit kills as well as plenty of cheese that leads to death traps.
  • That One Sidequest: During the White Water path in Dry Cereal, one of the things mandatory is to beat Big Pig at Go Fish. He's very good at playing, so expect frustration to ensue.
    • The White Water path itself could be considered this, as the puzzles in it are much, MUCH more difficult than in the Car Chase path.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: When Infogrames re-released the first game, the British dub somehow made it over to the States. For some, the new voice acting ruins it.
  • Sidetracked By The Golden Saucer:
    • Each of the minigames from the Spywatch, like "Happy Fun Sub" from "Dry Cereal", "Things From Space", a space shooter minigame in Some Assembly Required, and "Radioactive Trash Collector" Operation Ozone respectively
    • The Go Fish game (whenever you get the Lucky Charm after being Big Pig or the Car Chase path) from the first game could also qualify.
