A decent title but still somehow disappointing

  • Summary: I bought this game because I fell in love with the previous 3 Syphon Filter games on the PSOne -- wonderful things were anticipated as the series moved on to the more powerful PS2 console. Despite all the attention to detail and effort that went into making this game fun, it just does not all come together as intended. The graphics and audio are very well done but unfortunately the control and gameplay are a little disappointing.

Great potential but falls very short.

  • Summary: I've never played any of the original Syphon Filter games so I don't know what the genera is like or what the game used to be like but I heard good things about them so when I picked up Omega Strain I was very disappointed to find the game very flawed, and needing a lot of work. First thing lets start with the good, lets start with the reason I didn't give this game zero stars. The graphics and character models look very good which is the least we could have hoped for.

  • Summary: This is a decent game. However, one must be ready to endure massive frustration in order to complete it. Two words best describe it: unrealized potential.
  • Pros: Sharp graphics, sound good too, storyline still top-notch.
  • Cons: horrifying checkpoint system and other gameplay deficiencies

  • Summary: I'm an old-timer at this game who had played the first two games of this series so many times that I knew the location of every enemy, every bug that could happen, and could play through most levels without suffering a single hit. I'd missed Syphon Filter 3, so it was with great anticipation that I opened up this PlayStation 2 update on the franchise.

  • Excerpt: "...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. The third installment kept the great game play but lost the excitement by having boring content. With this fourth installment things have got somewhat worse. Let's look at the actual game play. It takes a step back towards the game play of the original ...
  • Pros: reasonable gaming experience
  • Cons: some very annoying features

  • Excerpt: "Games 1, 2 and 3 on the PlayStation 1, led the world in shoot-em-up action, even though the games were not major successes, each one had hours of gameplay, and the control and style of game was just different to anything else. I was so looking forward to the next reincarnation and hoping it would deliver on its promise of past glories stepping up a notch onto the PS2. The graphics and style of game are very good but sadly it is extremely difficult ...
  • Pros: Gabe Logan, Syphon Series .
  • Cons: Rubbish Handling & Control .

  • Excerpt: "I have been playing the syphon filter game series since they first appeared many years ago, and i was eagerly awaiting this first release on the PS2. First impressions were good, the training scenarios were very helpful and allowed me to get to grip with what are more difficult controls than the older games in the series. Making your own agent is another good idea, even if the customisation is limited. When i started the missions i was pleased ...
  • Pros: Better graphics, fun as always
  • Cons: shorter shelf - life than others
