Storyline

The Syphon Filter fiasco is finally over, and Gary Stoneman's assassination of Mara and Elsa ends the conspiracy for good, but the IPCA must solve a new case when paramilitary squads belonging to a group called Red Section attack an oil refinery owned by the corporation KemSynth Petroleum. When Washington calls for a Precision Strike, a mission too sensitive for military forces, Gabe and Lian travel to Alaska and investigate.

Gabe explores the refinery for the whereabouts of foreman Malcolm Freeman, and soon discovers hints of another project directed by a scientist named William Kreisler. More questions arise when Gabe observes the dead body of NSA agent Jack Miller, a man he knew, and proof of other NSA spying inside the area. He then kills a field commander codenamed Red Jack to advance, after observing that a soldier called Black King is leading the operation.

Once Lian destroys Red Section's transport, Gabe continues to search for data on the project Red Section is seeking. As he...

A PSP game that offers fun and a wonderful cinematic experience!
13 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

The Syphon Filter can be seen as an alternative to the more popular Metal Gear Solid series. The first time I played Syphon Filter I did not know what hit me. While the story wasn't that special it was compelling and cinematic enough to draw you in. This series was much more action based and actually less forgiving then Metal Gear Solid was. When I think about Syphon Filter I think about skill. Mastering head shot were essential. And with the controls on the PSX that was a very hard thing to do. I can't tell you how often I died before I could advance. But when you did,you really felt you accomplished something. (And yes,you can lock on targets and just shoot them. Only this way you will run out of bullets you definitely need for tougher battles.)The graphics and cut scenes never looked that great. What it lacked in graphics it compensated in experience. Syphon Filter:Dark Mirror for the PSP not only has improved in graphics it also provides much better game play. The only thing that still doesn't make sense is the story.(But that can be overlooked since the game play is so much fun.) With all the new gadgets and weapons there are more than one way to advance in levels. You can barge in and shoot everything that moves or you can take the stealthy approach which is recommended. The only flaw I could think of using stealth was that in some levels you are required to do things that make a lot of noise which can't be heard by the enemies. Which does look a bit odd when sometimes they can hear your footsteps even when you are sneaking up to them. The sniper rifle is the most fun since you can shoot different darts (gas,explosive and electricity) with it besides the normal bullets that provide alternative ways to take out targets. For example the explosive dart can take out multiple enemies when shot right. Mastering head shots is still a skill that I would recommend but is not necessary because of the alternative ways to eliminate targets. I do think that the controls on the PSP are much more intuitive than the PSX controller. If there is a game that you need to own for the PSP than Syphon Filter:The Dark Mirror is the one.
