    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 It's exactly what I was expecting.

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. Collapse

    On PSP it set new standards but this port, enjoyable spy romp that it is, simply seems a bit dated when brought to the PS2. [Sept 2007, p.82]

    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.
  3. This port of the excellent PSP game filters out online play and much of the fun that comes with it.
