Description official description

Logan's Shadow, the second PSP iteration of the long running Syphon Filter series, sees Gabe Logan in the battle of his life as he faces the possibility of his long time friend and ally, Lian Xing, could be a double agent.

This 3rd-person stealth title uses all the tricks in the book, with Logan's task made simpler thanks to a number of gadgets, weapons and techniques available to him. For example, using boxes and walls to duck and cover or humans themselves to create a shield against incoming bullets can save you both health and time in the middle of the action.

New interactive moments, such as unlocking doors or moving heavy items out of the way, require the right timing of button presses to pull off the moves. You will also go underwater to explore the depths of the ocean in order to take down the enemy and solve the mystery that could tear the world apart.

There are five multiplayer modes available, two new to the franchise (Sabotage and Retrieval), and three returning modes (Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Rogue Agent).

Trivia

1001 Video Games

Logan's Shadow appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

al-Jamil

Regarding the fictional Middle Eastern terrorist group al-Jamil -- which the protagonist character Gabriel Logan spends much of his time fighting throughout the story , and which is led by the character called Ghassan al-Bitar -- "al-Jamil" means "sunrise," or "the sunrise" in Arabic. The term is probably a metaphor for victory, vindication, or the establishment of whatever geopolitical conditions the group wants to create. It is a matter of opinion whether the al-Jamil foot soldiers are tragically misguided people, or mere vermin to be exterminated. From time to time, written material appears on the screen to introduce new game segments, as if the writing is from logs kept by Gabriel Logan. At one point, Logan writes that he almost feels sorry for the followers of al-Jamil -- because he helped to arm organizations like theirs, manipulating them to fight the Soviets following the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.
