    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.

    Without a doubt , the greatest game of the fifth generation of gaming. There is no shooting-action game that can match it or it's sequel.

YouA PS1 classic that combines Metal Gear Solid with Goldeneye. The action is fast and fluid, although the controls are a little sluggish. You play as Gabriel Logan, a U.S. spy that must stop terrorists bent on unleashing a biological weapon. The story is engaging and gameplay is a mix of shooting and stealth. One big tip: master the head shot early! Metal Gear fans should enjoy this. I would rate Syphon Filter with an 8.5 out of 10 Expand

    Despite the sluggish controls and awkward movement, there is a lot of fun to be had with Syphon FIlter. The large range of weapons and tools,Despite the sluggish controls and awkward movement, there is a lot of fun to be had with Syphon FIlter. The large range of weapons and tools, interesting level layout and progressive mission objectives and criteria make for an intersting experience. Voice acting is surprisingly good and some of the weapons sound fantastic for the time.

    Boss battles are the only thing that bother me, to be honest. Enemies shooting you from beyond the draw distance is some grade A crap, but is easily subverted in the end.
