From uk.playstation.com:
    Syphon Filter is a deadly espionage game where it's more than just your own life at stake. Succeed and a major biological disaster is averted. Fail and the whole of our race faces eradication at the hands of genetic terrorists.

    Assume the role of Gabriel Logan - the man heading the team responsible for saving our future. Fully trained in espionage and counter-terrorist operations, Logan must prevent a team of extremist eco-terrorists from releasing the 'Syphon Filter' virus into the atmosphere.

    Featuring beautifully animated real-time 3D environments, you must battle through 7 Worlds, 16 levels and 4 bosses.

    An arsenal of weapons is at your disposal and a huge variety of modes, including a zoom-in sniper mode, making this an extremely realistic mission-based adventure. But beware - though Logan is highly trained, his enemies are just as experienced. This is one game where it doesn't pay to underestimate the intelligence of the enemy!
