Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror (PlayStation 2)

 

The Syphon Filter franchise is a PlayStation staple, but after its debut on the original PlayStation, the series fell into a period of relative obscurity. That all changed with Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror for the PlayStation Portable. With a decent...

Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror (PSP)

 

The original Syphon Filter for the PlayStation made quite a splash with its blend of third-person stealth and shooting action. Unfortunately, subsequent games in the series failed to live up to the promise of the original game, with the most recent...

It's hard to describe to someone what makes a game memorable, what makes a franchise last so damn long even after having some less-than-stellar sequels. To be honest with you...

Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror - ps2

 

Dark Mirror doesn't make the smoothest transition from the PSP to the PS2 in the graphics department. Characters look awkward and choppy, their mouths don't sync up with the dialog at all, and for a game that obviously attempts to keep everything...

Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror

 

When it was originally released on the PSP in March of 2006, Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror was a great boost to the platform, as well as a rebirth for the series. In a time when the PSP's game library still seemed somewhat weak compared to its juggernaut...

At its core, still the same game that got so much acclaim on the PSP

The graphics look terrible now that they're on the big screen ; The gameplay doesn't feel right - they obviously just took the PSP controls and tweaked them a bit for the PS2 controller ; No online mode ; Game looks even more antiquated amongst the...

Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror was made for the PSP, and it is there that it succeeds. In trying to take the game and slap it onto the PS2, they've thrown away or lost everything that made it special to begin with, and are actually trying to charge $20...

Stripped down, censored port of a great game. Buy a PSP.

However, while not adding anything, they sure as hell managed to take some stuff away. Syphon Filter on the PSP featured a really robust, and fun, multiplayer game. All of that is missing on the PS2, which is pretty shocking. I can only figure that...

Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror is easily the best Syphon Filter ever made... on the PSP. On the PS2? Well...

Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror should absolutely be checked out, either as a PS2 rental or a nice, cheap PSP buy (the game is absolutely worth it, and will serve as a nice intro to the events that take place in the PSP sequel, Logan's Shadow). As a buy,...

Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror

 

It really makes me worried anytime I see a game go from handheld to console, that is just one of those transitions that usually ends in disaster. For

This is not your perfect port, and although the PSP version earned an Editor’s Choice from me over a year ago, I can’t say the same about the PS2 version. After a year you would think that there would be the inclusion of online play, but I suppose the...

Not as sweet as the PSP version.

See more screens ... The game, for the most part, survived the port-over process. Although the graphics suffer from a jittery frame rate, the details look good throughout. Enemy soldiers move convincingly and smartly stay behind cover, the...

A strong reflection.

Solid graphics; No load times; Excellent sound and voice work; Deep gameplay; Solid online multiplay

could have used more modes and maps; Weak plot, lame characters

The sounds make up for that half a generation, though. All of the characters are voiced, including the bad guys, and for an action game, the music is well orchestrated. It’s also tastefully restrained, as the harmonies never intrude on the main...

Product Specifications

Gabe Logan is a highly trained Precision Strike Operative, commanding a black box U.S. Agency that, legally, doesn't exist. Using Precision Strike Tactics, advanced vision technology, and the latest in high-tech weaponry, Logan's specialty is covert operations requiring deadly force. Logan and his team perform "surgical strikes": missions too sensitive for a military response, too dangerous for civilian intelligence forces. Logan's job is to infiltrate, recon and execute decisively. Once inserted, Logan is his own authority.
