    Best game ever, a big Kummeli hand for the greatest action packed gorefested masterpiece. Almost beats Manhunt and Die-Hard Trilogy...almost.

    An insanely fun and quite exceptional shooter that got negative attention in droves without reason. One of the best TPS games I've played so far, and one of the best of the Syphon Filter series. It plays like a classic Syphon Filter, and that's what people sadly hated about it. While many shall not show the proper love this game deserves, I shall show my appreciation and stand up for oneAn insanely fun and quite exceptional shooter that got negative attention in droves without reason.

    What can be said about Syphon Filter: The Omega Strain? I **** love it. Its one of my favorite PlayStation 2 games of all time along with Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, Resident Evil Code: Veronica X, an Sonic Heroes.

  1. Cooperative multiplayer and the basic gunplay thrills don't quite make up for bad control and ugly graphics.
  2. A disappointing package that clocks in much closer to the other Syphon Filter sequels instead of standing up to the fantastic original game.

    The sound effects are varied and realistic but the musical soundtrack steals the show. Not only is there plenty of musical variation but it matches the moods of the game perfectly.
