PS Store Description: A terrorist organization steals a top-secret virus known as Syphon Filter, and only special agent Gabe Logan can stop them the world safe. (Game is 385MB)

Gameplay: As you might know, this is the first game of the Syphon Filter series. These games all contain the special agent Gabe Logan. If you look at the vague description from the ps store, that's basically the whole story of this game. Ok now lets start the review.

The controls of this game is almost exactly like FTB, which I don't like one bit. But as Sony lets you do, they let you customize the controls. But still does really help, you would need a steep learning curve to play this game. When you first play this game, the first you will notice is that he he runs like car, that's right a car. But you cant blame the developers since that was then (1999).

The game has a fair amount of gameplay in it. Even though i beat in a sitting, it would take a few hours to beat fro the average gamer. They're are about 20 missions, with them being in between 5 locations. There are a few levels I would like to point at being confusing. The level "Base Bunker" has no map, which is then just making that level very irrigating. The mission "Washington Park" is possibly the greatest example of back-tracking, that's basically the whole level. Also with that bad graphics in this game makes it hard seeing stuff that you need to pick up, as in the first mission. That is a big no-no for this game. So you might actually need to turn up the brightness for this game.

I was able to run into a few glitches in this game such as, freezing, no responding in controls, and "broken graphics". This only happen when I was pressing multiple buttons at once or when I set the disc speed to fast. So don't do what I did or you will get these problems.

Last Note: Don't get this game. It has some stuff to offer but only for a few hours. I did run into a few problems in this game but that was only when I was randomly pushing buttons or had it on fast for disc speed. Waste your money somewhere else.

Alternatives: There are more better games out there. I can pull many games as better then this game.Monster Hunter Freedom 2, Star Wars Battlefront II, Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow, and or Metal Gear Solid. There are just a handful of games that are better.
