  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Syphon Filter is great on the PSP - personally I'd recommend it. But this is the PS2 version of said PSP game, and it just doesn't work. It's lazy, it's unsuited to the system and it's pointless. Unless you can find it for a tenner, there's no reason to pick it up.

Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror

Playstation Illustrated
26 October 2007
  • Excerpt: While the Syphon Filter series had a great run on the PSOne, the series wasn't well received on the PS2. Released last year for the PSP, Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror managed to not only find an audience where the PS2's Omega Strain failed, but also showed that the system's lack of dual-analog controls...

  • Summary: Gabe Logan goes undercover to infiltrate a terrorist conspiracy in Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror, a finely crafted stealth action title for the PSP. While slightly scaled-down, the handheld version promises to bring everything players love about the series to the system.

  • Excerpt: The days where people can claim the PSP isn't anything but a sales success hardware-wise are behind us. Though it's nowhere near as popular as the rampant, runaway success of the Nintendo DS, the PSP has actually sold more units than either the GameCube or the Xbox last generation.

Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror Review

VideoGamer.com
6 October 2007
  • Excerpt: The Syphon Filter series has suffered a bumpy ride in contrast with its genre mates, and has never really made it to the cult status many thought it would arrive at. On Sony's first console it was hugely popular and commercially successful, before floundering on the PlayStation 2.

  • Conclusion: The ultimate question you’ve got to ask yourself is do you own a PSP? If you do, then forget the PS2 version of the game and go buy that one. It’s the better of the two and features the complete package.

Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror review

Gameplanet
25 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Dark Mirror is not that bad, it offers some great play and some variety, and somewhat of a decent story to keep you interested throughout.
  • Pros: This game certainly has no shortage of variety with 30+ mission to get through and scattered across the world. Its enough to get you going for a few hours on end.
  • Cons: Graphics are not overly that great and again raises the question of ports. If porting games continue, as we are sure they will, then more effort needs to be made to ensure quality.

Syphon Filter – Dark Mirror

Gamecell
21 August 2007
  • Conclusion: As a full price PS2 title Dark Mirror will struggle but as a budget purchase or rental you might get something from it. The PS2 has had something of a renaissance towards the end of its shelf life with games like Okami, God of War and Shadow of Colossus showing what can be done with the aging...
  • Pros: Gadgets aplenty, Simple pick up and play gameplay, Laughably cheesy one-liners
  • Cons: Graphically lacking, No multi-player, Feels dated, Levels are too short – designed with the PSP not PS2 in mind
