Review: Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow Casts a Shadow of Pure Greatness

Syphon Filter has been one of Sony's premier franchises for the PlayStation line. Despite the series having several rather disappointing titles on the PS2, Sony has proven that the Syphon Filter series is far from dead with the PSP.

Gabe Logan is back and ready for some intense stealth-action in his latest adventure in Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow. Logan's Shadow pins Gabe up against a group of Syrian terrorists who have their eye on a top-secret military weapon and the possibility, that his long time partner, Lian Xing is a double agent. Without those two main problems, the government no longer trusts you and blames you for the weapon being taken by the Syrians.

What's Hot
Gabe Logan is one badass guy and the game really reflects that. With a variety of weapons at your disposal and numerous ways to take care of enemies, the action of this title is simply wonderful. Newly added to this title is the addition of blind firing at enemies to make them fall back into cover. Think Gears of War but not quite as over-dramatic. The enemies will often push forward on your location so blind firing will become a necessity as the game continues. This really makes thing more intense and really shines on the handheld scene where good AI isn't a common thing.

to get this game. PSP's GOTY. Now if we could just get a solid date for Crisis Core, I would be a happy camper.
