Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

It was surprising to hear that the third game in the popular Syphon Filter series would be built for the PlayStation; we're going to have to wait another year for the series to jump over to the PlayStation 2, but that's all right, because playing Syphon Filter 3 on the PSone is like coming home again. You again play as Gabe Logan as he tracks terrorists, enemy spies, and the Syphon Filter virus; the story has Congress getting involved and trying to pin the virus problem from the first two games on Gabe and his partner Lian Xing, so Gabe must clear his name and save the world again. Interestingly, the missions are played out of order as Gabe and his team explain their past missions to the committee; this flashback structure keeps the game refreshing.

Syphon Filter has never been for the weak-skilled. It features location-based damage (a head shot is fatal), making it one of the more frustrating or exhilarating of games, depending on how you look at it. The controls are as responsive as they've always been, and the camera system doesn't fail, which is a rarity in third person action games. The graphics are quite good for the PlayStation, if only slightly improved from Syphon Filter 2. The gameplay is extensive, with not only the story-based missions but also some mini-games and a multiplayer option that lets you gun for a friend in head-to-head combat.

Given the flashback nature of the missions, Syphon Filter 3 might be confusing for new players, so it's best for fans of the series, or as something to buy along with the earlier classics. In many ways the game feels like an expansion pack to Syphon Filter 2, which isn't a bad thing at all; overall, it's a compelling game that proves there's life yet in the old PlayStation. --Bob Andrews

5.0 out of 5 stars Virus 13 Nov 2001
Format:Video Game
BRILLIANT!
One of the only sequels I've played that surpasses the original, Tomb Raider 2 came close but Syphon Filter 3 breaks the mold set by the original released back in February 1999. The Syphon Filter 2 left us craving that a third installation be created, a final chapter, concluding Gabriel Logan's war against the government agency and the 'Syphon Filter' virus. With a new high-tech arsenal including laser crossbows and more assault rifles than you can shake a finger at, you are placed in drivers seat of this roller coster ride to stop the Syphon Filter virus... 'Breathtaking!'

5.0 out of 5 stars Gabe returns! 26 Feb 2002
Format:Video Game
Forget Solid Snake and Lara Croft. They are no match for Playstation's true action hero, Gabriel Logan or better known as Gabe Logan. The third and final installment of Syphon Filter has arrived and it does not dissapoint. Gabe and Lian decide to end the Syphon Filter weapons sale for good in this brilliant game. The levels are really well done and the video sequences are fantastic. Anyone who has not played the first and second game of the Syphon Filter series should not buy this due to the person playing needing to know the history of Syphon Filter. There are more weapons such as the Falcon - Gabe's new pistol, but still keeping the original weapons in the game. There are also mini games in which to test your ability as an Assasin - eliminating people in various levels (DC Subway, Pharcom Expo Centre, New York slums ect), providing cover fire for a demolition expert, being a thief (testing your stealth ability), all out elimination of the enemy and there is one more mini game which is locked. There are dificulty settings for these which you advance to once completing the level - the settings are Trainee, Rookie, Agent, Special Agent and Commander.
If you have the previous 2 games in the series buy this one. If you only have the first game, buy the second and this. Both are available at Amazon. The only bad point of this game, compared to "Syphon Filter 2", is that it is a bit too easy.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3rd indeed 1 April 2003
Format:Video Game
When the first Syphon Filter came along it blew a lot of people away. Standing out as an action filled Metal Gear Solid, the Syphon Filter series stood in a class of its own. The second installment was probably the series at it's peak and sadily Syphon Filter 3 feels a bit tired in comparison. New mini games are fine, and the opening level of sniping enemies from a hotel room kicks things off well. However the further you go into the game the more you realise youve been here before. More fresh ideas please.
