Conclusion: Building on the sterling work of last year’s Dark Mirror, Logan’s Shadow proves that the Syphon Filter series has found its natural home on Sony’s handheld. Linear it may be but as a cinematic action game, you can’t fault it.
Excerpt: As fans of Logan’s original PS1 adventures and his latest outing on PSP last year, we were quietly confident that Sony Bend’s second venture on PSP would meet the high standard set by Dark Mirror. Thankfully Logan’s Shadow equals the quality of its predecessor, but 18 months on, is that enough?
Conclusion: The high production values of the last game have been carried over and it’s in the visuals where it most shows. Smoke and water effects look lovely and the FMV sections between missions are stunning on the PSP’s widescreen. A decent musical score finishes off a very polished package. One of the best the PSP has to offer.
Pros: Impressive visuals, Decent gunplay, Value for money, Extensive multi-player
Cons: Basic enemy AI, Nothing drastically new in the gameplay
Excerpt: Worth a shot and will go down well with followers of the series. It breathes new life into the series, both on the gaming experience and relationships formed throughout. It also sheds new light on the PSP which has for a while now been screaming out for exclusive titles.
Pros: Pretty impressive looking game, and one that easily could be among the top games on the platform. It also cleverly implements a few features to make up for the PSP's lack of functionality.
Cons: The God of War button combination action is poorly implemented and used needlessly in general play. A quick cut scene could have easily done the job for some of the tasks you have to do using this function.
Excerpt: Ils sont venus, ils sont tous là ! Les services secrets américains, britanniques, russes et chinois se disputent la mystérieuse cargaison subtilisée par des terroristes sur un navire de l’US Navy. Et Gabe dans tout ça ?
