One of the best portable gaming experiences you can have. You don't play a character in this game you become the character.
One of the very best games for the PSP and one that all gamers should experience.
Everything about the game is top-quality. The artificial intelligence provides plenty of interesting moments, the save points are frequent, the story is more accessible than Splinter Cell's dry politi-babble, the voice work and graphics are the best I've seen on the PSP, and the entire game drips with polish and care delivered by people who know what they're doing.
This measured, almost plodding gameplay ups the tension and works well in campaign mode, but the faster-paced chaos of multiplayer only heightens your awareness of the innately awkward controls. Multi's a bit short on maps and modes, too.
The first fully realised game on the PSP - it made portable third person shooters possible on the PSP, paving the way for the Metal Gear Solid games, particularly Peace Walker, and reinvigorated the Syphon Filter franchise, so much so that a new game is coveted still today. The use of face buttons as a second analog stick is simple when you think about it, but it took this game to fully realise the concept and pave the way for other games. It wasn't just the amazing controls either that made this game great - the combat was awesome, and fluid with the player's movements, while there is a plethora of missions, achievements, and a hard difficulty that's actually hard. Also an amazing score by Mark Snow (Smallville) adds to the greatness of this game. This game may not have as many rabid fans as the Metal Gear Solid games on PSP, but for my money, this is the game to beat for 3rd person shooters on PSP, perhaps even the best portable game of all genres. It's that good!
In this review, only the negative aspects of the game are considered. The purpose of this work is to help you to get a better decision on the purchase of the game
My Rating: 7 of 10
Weak points :
- Some parts of the story remain obscure
- Bad dialogues and characters are soulless
- Has basic glitches in character control
This game is just bland. There is pretty much no stealth gameplay which i thought the game would have but instead you have a game with just a bland story, terrible voice acting and meh gameplay. Couldn't recommend.
Syphon filter dark mirror could have been made better. Logan's shadow is way better than this one! A very big down fall for this game is that it graphics during the videos is very poor. But the one in Logan's shadow makes you feel like you are playing it in a ps3 but in actual fact it is a psp!
