  • Summary: While it may not be an original concept, the game is truly greater than the sum of its many parts.

    The atmosphere is captured perfectly, the cinemas are perfectly interleaved with the action, really drawing you into Gabe's chaotic world.

    The stealth aspect of Syphon Filter is fantastic. Pure bliss. "Metal Gear Solid" and "Goldeneye" fans will absolutely dig the many mission objectives just within a single level, which are sometimes split up into two or three different parts.
  3. A wonderful game that manages to combine the action/mission based elements of "Goldeneye" with the military overtones of "MGS" into one slam blam package.
  4. Graphically this game is really well done. The PlayStation probably isn't going to get much better at this point.
  5. This is easily the sleeper hit of the year with action that rivals the highest grossing action flicks. Mel Gibson watch out!
  6. Despite the slight lack of originality and a couple of minor problems, Syphon Filter grabs you and doesn't let go.
  7. It's derivative, yet brilliant; intrinsically flawed, but fantastically playable.

    When released on the PSone Syphon Filter provided an entertaining mix of stealth and action orientated gameplay. Unfortunately as with many games of that era the graphics and controls don't really stand up when played today meaning that this is one game best left in the past. Expand
