  1. Dark Mirror has its ups and downs with the transition over to the PS2, but that still can't change what a solid action game it truly is.
  2. While it’s nothing groundbreaking, the action is solid, mission objectives are varied and interesting, and the enemies are intelligent enough to make for some intense sequences.
  3. 80
    While it's still an enjoyable title, particularly for the incredible story and the presentation of the game world, this is by no means as solid as its UMD counterpart.
  4. There is a somewhat dated feel to the action that will be felt most firmly by those used to elaborate team-based shooters, but for fans of the best of the series, and those who want a shining example of the epitome of first wave third-person-shooters, the latest Syphon Filter is an essential purchase.
  5. A good port of a great PSP game.

    It was pure crap and a waste of time no where near as good as SF2 & 3.It seems that after the third one the game just gets even worse.

    It's exactly what I was expecting. I absolutely loved this game on PSP, and this gives me more of what I love plus a control scheme that It's exactly what I was expecting. I absolutely loved this game on PSP, and this gives me more of what I love plus a control scheme that I found more comfortable. My one complaint about the game (I had the same complaint on PSP) is that you can no longer manually restart a mission at the last checkpoint as you could in SF2 and SF3. If you blow your cover in a stealth mission and want to start from the last checkpoint, you either have to restart the entire mission, or allow yourself to be killed. It's a minor complaint, but it does become aggravating at times. I'm not at all interested in online play, so not having that feature available means nothing to me. While this is a great game, I think that the $40 price tag is a bit much for a port of year-old PSP game. All things considered, it's a worthy addition to any PS2 collection. Full Review »
