Gabe Logan returns this summer in Syphon Filter®: Logan’s Shadow for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system. This original title, created by Sony’s Bend Studio for the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, has been re-mastered with new high-resolution models and environments to create a true console shooter experience for the PS2.
Written by Greg Rucka, author of the Queen and Country series of novels and graphic novels, Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow provides a sophisticated and gripping storyline that is sure to resonate with comic book lovers and action enthusiasts. We find Gabe Logan once again using a combination of stealth and “run-and-gun” gameplay as he is called into action when a dangerous new technology is hijacked by a criminal extremist group. In a story that takes him from the depths of the Indian Ocean to the deserts of the Middle East, Gabe is faced with the possibility that his long time partner, Lian Xing is a double agent.
Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow provides a variety of combat mechanics including the ability to force enemies into cover with “blind-fire”, an advanced melee system that allows Gabe to use enemies as human shields and full 360 degree underwater combat.
Leverages DualShock 2 controller, utilizing the second analog stick to make getting in and out of cover easier and the L1 button to make combat more intuitive.
Re-mastered for the PS2 hardware with high resolution textures and effects
Precision targeting allows players to target enemy body parts utilizing an arsenal of more than 55 high-tech weapons and advanced vision technology.
Enhanced combat actions enable players to force enemies to take cover with “blind fire” or protect health with the new “human shield” features.
Underwater physics allows players to experience 360 degrees of water navigation to explore shipwrecks and target enemies with new underwater weapons like the bolt pistol and spear gun.
Features a “Hollywood-style” Production with a gripping storyline by acclaimed author Greg Rucka (Whiteout, Queen & Country series) and an all-new soundtrack by international recording artist Azam Ali (300, 24).
