  • Summary: We find Gabe Logan once again using a combination of stealth and "run-and-gun" gameplay as he is called into action when a dangerous new technology is hijacked by a criminal extremist group. In a story that takes him from the depths of the Indian Ocean to the deserts of the Middle East, GabeWe find Gabe Logan once again using a combination of stealth and "run-and-gun" gameplay as he is called into action when a dangerous new technology is hijacked by a criminal extremist group. In a story that takes him from the depths of the Indian Ocean to the deserts of the Middle East, Gabe is faced with the possibility that his long time partner, Lian Xing is a double agent. Logan's Shadow is complete with a variety of combat mechanics including the ability to force enemies into cover with "blind-fire", an advanced melee system that allows Gabe to use enemies as human shields, and 360 degree underwater combat. For the first time in the franchise "interactive moments" have been added for increased player interaction, such as airlifting debris and escaping wrist restraints. Returning to the franchise are buddy missions which have been enhanced with a variety of new objectives. [SCEA] Expand

  1. Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow neither looks nor plays like your typical “handheld” game, and it seriously pushes the limits of what the PSP and portable games in general can achieve. Hell, you’re lucky to find a console game so well put together overall.

    Exhilarating, accomplished and relentlessly enjoyable. [Christmas 2007, p.110]
  3. This well-rounded, gorgeous game delivers on all fronts with scarcely a problem in sight. With superb and precise controls, Logan's Shadow provides gamers with an intriguing story, a variety of environments and all the tactical gunplay they can handle.
  4. Once again, it’s apparent that Syphon Filter and the PSP were made for each other. While the game isn’t without its issues, it’s still a solid action title that actually feels at home on the handheld. Action fans with a PSP should consider this a must-have.

    Visually this is one of the best games on the PlayStation Portable - easily comparable to PlayStation 2 quality from the cut scenes to the in game models; and it plays well too.
  6. Hardcore Gamer
    80
    With a ten to fifteen-hour playtime, hidden unlockables to look for in every level, and fleshed-out online mode, Logan's Shadow is one of the PSP's best games to date. [Nov 2007, p.57]
  7. Edge Magazine
    60
    As efficiently and proficiently designed as Logan’s Shadow is, it’s unavoidably tied to the problems associated with action games of this type on PSP. [Feb 2008, p.96]

Reminds me a lot of the first Metal Gear Solid in that you can use stealth and force. Great graphics and gameplay. The underwater levels are incredible. With over 20 levels, this game lasts as well. Add the fun multiplayer (which is shockingly good) and you have the game of the year for the PSP. Truly cinematic gaming on the go. Expand

Leaving everything that worked as a base, it fixes everyThe sequel to arguably the most amazing portable game ever, it doesn't disappoint. Leaving everything that worked as a base, it fixes every minuscule problem and builds upon them to make another astounding game. Employing comic book writer Greg Rucka, the story is a vast improvement, and plays as a very enjoyable spy thriller. The graphics for the cut scenes have increased immensely, while the added swimming levels work excellently, which is something I never thought I'd see. Multiplayer's been made better as well. Overall a great game - even though Dark Mirror will likely have higher scores because of the shock it caused, for my money this game's just as good - and as good as a sequel could be. Expand

It left on a cliff hanger. I wish Sony would hurry up and make a sequel to this game. I hate cliff hangers. Expand
