Summary: I have really enjoyed the SF series over the years but this game was extremely frustrating to learn. Gameplay is godawful! You used to be able to start a mission over quickly with a push of a couple of buttons; now you have to quit the mission and then wait for the darn thing to reload.
Summary: Ok, i rented omega stream because i was a syphon filter fan of 1-3, this one just disappointed me, The graphics almost compare with the first game,Gameplay is crap, Online just wont cut it, Mindless Shot em up game.
Disappointing, complicated and not on par with predecessors.

Summary: If you like the Syphon Filter series, perhaps you felt the same anticipation for this first of the series on PS2 that I did. I was disappointed. The story concept was still good...but the designers missed the mark in many ways. Graphics, music and mood are all top-notch. So what didn't I like?
Mindless Shoot em' up--would be fun if you could see it

Summary: Relating to it's previous games, Syphon FilterLOmega Stain is a 3rd person shooter with little (to almost none) planning of strategy of the shootout. The game usually sends you in a base filled with terrorists of dumb AI but big weapon power (their accuracy can later into the levels be almost...

Summary: Im a huge fan of the Syphon Filter frachise. I own and beat all 3 of the original and ones for ps1 and let me tell you when I got this one I was dissapointed and pissed. First of all I would like to know why the hell your not Gabe Logan in this game!?!?!
Summary: This game is really hard. I haven't even gotten past the second level. You cant save during a mission which makes it hard to have fun when you need to play for 40 minutes to finish a mission. But if you can somehow reach the par times, then I guess it would be ok.
Summary: Omega Strain tries to please everyone, but it ends up pleasing no one. There are some good things here, like creating and customizing your own agent, but as far as I can see, that's the ONLY good thing and that's certainly not enough to redeem it.
Summary: The original Syphon Filter was one of the ground-breaking action games for PS2 in recent memory. That was followed by a decent sequel and the execrable Syphon Filter 3. And now, the final chapter.
Summary: I bought this game for the ps2 the other day and it hasn't really taken my fancy. I think the problem is that they give you a time limit in each mission, which is something that I don't think they should do. I had such high hopes for it, but now I think Syphon Filter has taken a downhill toll.
Excerpt: I've always been a great fan of Syphon filter and still believe that it is better than metal gear solid (controversial I know). The first two games in the series are all time classics and then the third came out.
