Psi-Ops is an action game with a twist: no longer do you have to rely solely on big weapons and explosions to progress through it - you also have the aid of psychic powers to take down army after army of enemy soldiers.

In the game you take the role of Nick Scryer, a secret agent who had his face reconstructed and mind wiped clean in order to infiltrate a growing psychic organization calling itself The Movement. Nick, however, is captured, but manages to free himself and continue his mission to stop The Movement, regaining his psychic abilities along the way.

The game mixes regular weapons with the weapons of the mind. You'll have access to a series of mind powers, such as Telekinesis (the ability to fling object and soldiers around), Pyrokineses (the ability to set things on fire), Mind Drain (for draining Psi power out of foes' minds) and Remote Viewing (leaving your body behind and exploring the level).


Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy Xbox "Remote Viewing" allows you to move around in an out of body experience to see what lies ahead.  You can also go through doors.

1001 Video Games

Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

German version

There a number of changes when playing the game with German language settings:
  • All blood and gore effects were removed. However, there are a few scenes which are still bloody.
  • The ragdoll effects on corpses were removed.
  • When using the PSI ability mind control, it is no longer possible to force enemies into committing suicide.
A detailed list of changes can be found on schnittberichte.com (German).

Japanese version

The cover for the Japanese version of the game features artwork by the former SNK artist (who later joined Capcom) Toshiaki Mori, known by fans as Shinkiro.


Nick Scryer's last name was originally going to be "Geller." This is a reference to Uri Geller, a famous magician who claims to be psychic.


An instrumental version of "With my Mind" can be heard in the elevator of the fifth stage.

Target release

A "bonus" version of the game can be found at Target stores. It contains a music CD featuring the game's theme song, "With My Mind," and three other songs by Cold.
