Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror

ZTGameDomain.com
3 July 2010
  • Excerpt: The history of the Syphon Filter franchise is spotty at best, ever since the introduction of Gabe and company on the original PSOne the game has seen the best and worst of the genre. Now the gang is back and about to tackle an entirely new mission, portable gaming. With the bad taste of the last PS2 iteration still fresh in your mouth you will more than likely cringe at the idea of a new Syphon Filter title, but rest assured this isn’t the same Gabe that PS2 owners have...

  • 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
24 September 2007
  • Excerpt: While the Syphon Filter series had a great run on the PSOne, the series failed to achieve on the PS2. Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror is yet another platform jump for the series, but with much better results. Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror is a string of successes all combined into one great experience. It all starts with visuals that are pushing the system about as far as any game on the PSP has managed to do so far.

  • Conclusion: The developers have bolstered the resolution and polygon count of the original PSP version, but the game doesn’t fully utilize the PS2’s graphics processing. Aside from numerous framerate hitches, some missions display psychedelic graphical glitches, and the Casino level tears the screen apart. In fact, I found that I had to simulate the PSP experience by sitting two feet away from my display (a 32” LCD) to see objects and enemies clearly .
  • Pros: Mindless action, Brisk Pace, Variety of missions
  • Cons: Play without friends, ...with glitchy graphics, ...for a short time, ...with a gargantuan head.

Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror Review

  • Excerpt: One of the simple joys of reviewing handheld titles is that you should be able to play them everywhere, rather than doing all that stuff around the house you have to get finished (washing up, pleading with the bank, apologising to the girlfriend) before finally sitting down in front of your widescreen telly with a controller, notepad and pen at 1am.

Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror – Review

29 May 2007
  • Excerpt: If I was to reduce Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror to a mathematical formula, one way of looking at it might be: Sam Fisher + Solid Snake - Distinct Personality = Gabe Logan. However, in terms of gameplay, it might be more like Kill.Switch + ( Splinter Cell - stealth) + ( Metal Gear - wackiness) + (Action x 2) = Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror.

What goes on a handheld should sometimes stay on a handheld

Cheat Code Central
29 April 2007
  • Conclusion: It's disheartening that these two PlayStation games are so disparate. Syphon Filter is a great franchise, but the PS2 version of Dark Mirror misrepresents the series in terms of overall quality. The only way to experience the full impact of this title is to play it on the PSP. It's too bad that this version makes PS2 owners feel like third-world gamers.
