Summary: Of all the Syphon Filter games I've played (the first 4), this is absolutely the worst. Everything that made the first 3 games great has been changed. You no longer can take your time and sneak up on enemies. You are forced to rush with arbitrary time limits.
Summary: I thought I wasted my time writing a review on this crap, but apparently not. I played it for about an hour and wanted to get rid of it the same day. Syphon Filter used to be a sure thing, but now it's up the creak without a paddle.
Summary: Ive never played these Syphon Filter games before, but the commercial on TV looked pretty good, so I bought it one evening when I couldnt really find anything else. Im a pretty good player and I usually adapt pretty quickly to little nuances in the controls and movement.
Summary: What a way to ruin a good franchise. First off you are given nague overgeneral briefings, and placed in the dark in a large locale with a useless and confusing at best map. With only the most general vague idea of what you're expected to do and where you are also on a timer.
Summary: I recently picked up the game and to my disappointment it has been completely changed. It seems the creators wanted to get a piece of the SOCOM market share; i.e. online capability, setting up your character and the overall mission briefings.
Summary: I'm one of Syphon Filter's biggest fans--I even love Syphon Filter 3, which was generally panned by critics. But SF: Omega Strain is a total letdown. I'm glad I only rented it instead of buying it. The game just doesn't play like a real Syphon Filter. It plays like a Syphon Filter knock-off.
Summary: I just finished wasting too many hours on this first - FIRST! - mission of this game, and I have to say that I'm quite disppointed so far. First, the storyline is all but incomprehensible. Second, why is this game even called Syphon Filter?
Summary: NO WONDER THEY KEEP DELAYING THIS PIECE OF CRAP,I LOVED ALL THE OTHER GAMES SO I AM DISAPPOINTED BIG TIME!!ITS SO BAD I DIDN'T EVEN TRY TO FINISH OUT THE LEVEL WHICH IS RARE? WANT A ROCKING GAME? TRY "XIII" I LOVED IT!!!
