The storyline is great as well, wrapping up many loose ends and revealing the true origin of the virus. Of course, like many Hollywood blockbusters, the ending does leave the door open for further adventures for Gabe and the gang, so maybe this isn’t the end after all. I certainly hope not.

Auf der ersten Blick scheint die Grafik etwas schlechter als beim zweiten Teil... aber dann merkt man doch, daß einige Details vorhanden sind. Das Gameplay ist wieder mal recht abwechslungsreich und knackig. Schon am Anfang wird einem einiges abverlangt. Fazit: Eine wieder mal gelungene Fortsetzung des Agenten-Spektakels!

With Syphon Filter 3, Sony continues to prove that there is still a place for 32-bit gaming. I can’t help but agree with its decision to end this trilogy on the machine it was born on. You may scowl at the pixelated textures and the limited draw distance, but after you play through the game, I think you’ll be happy that you did so on the PlayStation. This is the game that answers all of the questions, and finally reveals the mastermind behind the Syphon Filter virus. If you’ve played through the first two installments, this is what you’ve been waiting for.

Syphon 3 is really more of an add-on level pack than a whole new game, which is hardly a bad thing. Pros will comfortably stride right into the fray, while newbies should start with Syphon 1 to avoid being lost. Either way, Syphon 3 is a riveting mission that no self-respecting commando wannabe should skip.

At this year's E3, we found ourselves more excited that Eidetic was working on a PS2 game set in the Syphon Filter universe than in the release of the third in the PSone series. But after once again immersing ourselves in its quality gameplay and intriguing story of international espionage, it was easy to realize why this series was one of the hallmarks in the latter half of the PSone life cycle.

A l'heure où les sorties PSone commencent un peu à se calmer, on ne peut que se réjouir de voir arriver un nouvel épisode de Syphon Filter. Malgré son manque d'innovations, le titre reste passionnant. Ne le loupez pas, c'est probablement l'un des derniers grands jeux de la console.

SF3 is not an entirely new game, I would consider it to be an extension, or add on to the previous release. Those that have played the previous game will be able to dive right in and pick up the action. Those who are new to the game should probably start with the original Syphon Filter or they may feel a little lost in the story line.

Once again, players get the chance to dig into some serious action-heavy anti-terrorist activities in Syphon Filter 3. If you've played the other two games in the series, you're in for pretty much of the same good game.

If you're a fan of this genre, then you will probably want to get this game. You’ll feel like you're right there, whether you're trying to help Logan get past an automated machine gun turret or rescue the mayor’s daughter from a group of crazy terrorists. Plus, the controls are simple enough to master that you shouldn't have to pause the game to look at the manual just to figure out how to pull off a stunt.

Visst finns det nyheter, till exempel en bunt minispel utöver det vanliga spelläget, och så finns ju tvåspelarmöjligheten kvar från Syphon Filter 2. Förvänta er dock inga radikala förändringar utan bara mer av det goda.

After all that though it just keeps pecking away at the back of my mind that this is a very average game. Well not so much average as it is solid. A good game that never really does anything to prove that it's a great game. But never doing anything to prove that it's a bad game either. It's there, on the shelf, waiting to be picked up. Those that do will have a good time. Those that don't won't really be missing much. It’s just there.

Syphon Filter 3 godnie pożegnał swą serię na szaraku jednak mimo wszystko zawiódł pewne oczekiwania. W obecnej sytuacji polecam zagrać Ci w nowsze odsłony przygód Gabe'a, jak chociażby Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror czy też Logan's Shadow. Jeżeli natomiast czujesz nieodparte "parcie na oldschool" zdecydowanie polecam drugą część gry.

The feeling of tension and suspense the player gets while playing through the first two games is strangely absent here. Whereas before I would hug the walls and creep silently through corridors looking for the enemy, now I find myself calmly standing in the middle of a room nonchalantly picking off baddies. Maybe I'm a better player, maybe I'm jaded, or just maybe the game isn't as exciting anymore.

Syphon Filter 3 looks, plays, and feels more like an expansion pack for the previous games than a true sequel. It's incredibly striking upon starting the game how similar it is to Syphon Filter 1 and 2. The heads-up displays, the menu graphics, the sound effects--if you've played either of the first two games, you've seen it all before. But Syphon Filter is a series known for its gameplay, not extravagant graphics and sounds, right? Right. Fortunately, that's the one area where the third game in the series still delivers.
