From the development team of the critically acclaimed Syphon Filter® franchise, comes their first project exclusive to the PSP™ (PlayStation® Portable) system, set to deliver an intense, edge of your seat thriller. An immersive single-player experience that also delivers an evolving online multiplayer experience, Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror features melee attacks, target lock, precision aiming, target and vision enhancements, enhanced artificial intelligence (AI), and high-tech weaponry. Gamers can choose between difficulty modes that monitor and adjust skill level, nine unique online maps using both Ad Hoc and Infrastructure connectivity, and four types of gameplay modes in multiplayer.
Gamers assume the identity of Gabe Logan, a highly-trained Precision Strike Operative, commanding a black box United States Agency that legally doesn't exist. Gabe finds himself dealing with a beautiful woman from his past who harbors a shocking secret while he battles the Red Section, a para-military group in possession of Project Dark Mirror, a next-generation weapon of mass destruction. Using Precision Strike Tactics, advanced vision technology, and the latest in high-tech weaponry, Logan and his team perform surgical strike missions í¢â‚¬" too sensitive for a military response, too dangerous for civilian intelligence forces. Through the role of Gabe, players will have to be quick to strategize, as he is responsible to infiltrate, recon and execute decisively. Once inserted, Logan is his own authority í¢â‚¬" he must make life and death decisions, quickly choosing which course of action to take.
