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.
Played this back in 2000s on PS1 of course and was one of those games that I will always remember. Looked amazing, played good, interesting story and lots of action. Now that its on PS4 n 5, I recommend highly to classic game lovers to go back and explore but be ready for adjustment needed with gameplay todat. ️
When Agent Ellis loses contact during a mission in Costa Rica, special agents Gabe and Lian to are sent to find him and apprehend international terrorist Erich Rhoemer.
Syphon Filter provides an entertaining mix of stealth and action orientated gameplay, and although the graphics and controls now feel very dated, it’s still pretty good fun.
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.
Syphon Filter is a game that even for the time it feels really outdated, this is not an early PS1 game, this is 1999. By the time, the controls and graphics were much more polished overall. The way to shoot the guns reminds me to GTA 3, if not, a bit worse for its camera, so you really know what to expect. Although the first person view was cool, and there´s a bit variety of weapons to use. But what kills this game is the level design and its checkpoint system, is so unfair at times, killing you in one hit only because you do a mistake and losing like 15 minutes or more of progress. But the enemies never are a threat, and they can shoot you from close range and i mean close range like 1 METER and they dont hit you, WHAT?
The soundtrack was fine, the same with the story, but nothing spectacular.
There´s also a bit of revolutionary gameplay here and there, but anything impressive in this game is drag down by the bad.
