Quoted from Syphon Filter: Omega Strain Reviews:Check out these quotes from Syphon Filter: Omega Strain reviews & previews
"...it's a depressingly bland experience, and frankly not one we'd advise anyone but the most committed online console gamer to even bother having a look at. It's by no means the worst game we've played all year, and played in its native online mode improves it a further notch, but the bottom line is that PS2 owners deserve so much more than a generic action game at this stage - especially one where playing it alone presents a massive disadvantage."
"The ideas behind making the online and offline games so similar are interesting ones, but in the end, the game itself isn't interesting enough to live up to the concepts."
"By making as clean a break as possible from the previous installments, The Omega Strain may be in a perfect position to revitalize Sam Fisher's most direct competition. The offline game looks compelling, and if the online teamwork is as involving, Sony could really be on to something."
"Syphon Filter: The Omega Strain should be a polished product that offers dozens of hours of gameplay for action fans. It wraps up this story arc of the Syphon Filter series with style."
"...with the control issues and the respawning and the floaty movement, The Omega Strain is kept in check from becoming a more immersive experience and is instead more of an arcade-style shooter. These flaws in the game show that there's still room to grow after this experiment in online gameplay is concluded."
