Trivia

The game's timeframe takes place from sometime in August 1999 to 8 September 1999. This can be figured out from the date/time info on the in-game PDA equipment See more »

Goofs

Mara Aramov is Russian, but her last name should actually be "Aramovna," because Russian surnames have masculine and feminine forms. See more »

Quotes

Thomas Markinson: I have already had Pharcom investigated. The final report was inconclusive.
Gabe Logan: Whose report, Benton's? The same man who coordinated our botched raid in Costa Rica? The man who got Jenkins' entire team taken out?

Crazy Credits

At the end of the credits, a man is shown looking out Markinson's office window with Pharcom boxes in the foreground. Mara Aramov walks up to him and whispers something in his ear, he replies "well done my dear, well done..." she then runs off laughing and the door is left open for a sequel See more »

Alternate Versions

Early drafts of Gabe and Lian were of having Gabe with buzz-cut army style haircut, and Lian with short red hair. These drafts however evolved into Gabe and Lian as we know them now and can be seen as a secret code on _Syphon Filter 2_ (2000). See more »

Nearly 20 years later a landmark in Playstation video games..
11 May 2019 | by justin-fencsakSee all my reviews

When this game came out, Metal Gear Solid was a huge hit and spawned many copycats, including this one. The acting and pace is well done and the graphics and sound are great and the controls are good. I never beat the game since it was too hard for me. Thankfully i got it on my ps3 to replay again after renting it at blockbuster when it came out. It's time that this game deserves a reboot ever since God of War became a hit.
