This game ROCKS!!
20 August 2000 | by (Froland, Norway) – See all my reviews

Syphon Filter came as a bit of a surprise. I had just finished "Metal Gear Solid" and I was urging for more spy-action. Well, Syphon Filter is not as good as MGS, but comparing the two games isn`t quite fair. Syphon Filter is a more actionpacked experience than MGS, but the voice-overs, graphics and so on isn`t quite up to MGS`s standard. The game is a lot of fun to play, but can sometimes be hard to control. Syphon Filter does also have some stealth-levels like in MGS. The game can sometimes be VERY HARD, but therefore it`ll last you longer than MGS did, and is satisfying to finally complete a hard level. This game is much more violent than MGS, but MGS was a much more stylish experience with a kick-ass plot, excellent atmosphere and good vioce overs. The graphical detail in Syphon Filter have been kept down to make the game move faster and to avoid that dreadful slow-down that plagues many other games. Okay, the plot can be a bit cheesy, but Syphon Filter is a lot of fun. If you`d like to know which game to buy of MGS and Syphon Filter, I`d say go buy both games. It is quite affordable now since both games can be picked up cheaply. 9,5/10
