The sequel to the spy shooter Syphon Filter, Syphon Filter 2 features two main characters, Gabe Logan and Lian Xing, who are required to stop the sale of the Syphon Filter (the world’s deadliest weapon) to an enemy nation. Starting off as prisoners, they must escape and prove their innocence to the world. Much like Metal Gear Solid, several plot twists and conspiracies are to be expected.
Now, rather than just one character, you are given a second commando to work with. Lian Xing brings with her new weapons and is playable on no less than eight of the games 20+ levels spanning three unique environments. The levels are designed to be larger and more detailed than the previous version.
Two-player deathmatches are now part of the campaign and offer a new style of play to Syphon Filter fans. Deathmatches can be played on each of the game’s levels and there are 28 characters to choose from (a la GoldenEye 007), in an effort to enhance the replay value of the game.
