What's Syphon Filter?  =======:::>
Syphon Filter drops you into the shoes of Gabriel Logan, a tough-guy ounter-terrorism specialist assigned to prevent a biological terrorist attack from happening in the States. To accomplish this, you'll have to complete numerous missions, each with it's own objectives for you to complete. While progressing through each mission, voice-overs & letter boxed real-time cinemas move the plot along.

How's it played?
The gameplay is presented in the 3rd person view mode during most of the action which the camera follows Gabe as you steer him around the levels. Levels are huge and also quite immerse. Some of the objectives which you'll need to complete, requires you to run around(using the torch light if it's dark) and keep your eyes peeled for things in which you must take or trigger in order to complete.

How To Stay Alive?
Staying alive is a major problem when you've only a FLAK Jacket on, been the only agent who can stop the terrorists & running around trying to save the day when your name is all over the terrorist's ammunition. There are a few ways in which you could stay alive.
(1) Never stand around a place where gasoline tanks, grenades, cars and other things which can blow up.
(2) Always wait for the elevator to arrive at where you're instead of just jumping down like you're James Bond or somebody.
(3) Never let any hostile personals a chance to live. Fire b-4 they do 7 shoot them in their head.
(4) Don't use explosive things near a time bomb or you'll be blown away.
(5) Grab any ammunition or Flak Jackets as much as you can.(If your quantity for that object is not max out.)


Washington DC: Georgia Street
Run to the crossfire scene which is just right of the screen. Take out the hostile terrorist & hang right to get the M-16, the very weapon which I love to use due to its rapid fire. After all is calm, proceed into the Bar which is just left of you. Enter the short hallway just beside the pool table. Along the corner of a crate is a terrorist hiding. Take him out & grab some M-16 ammunition. From there continue along the hallway until you reach the main bar. There you will find Kravitch trying to hide behind the bar table. As he also have a FLAK Jacket on just like you, shoot him in his head to take him out fast. After his dead, go to the bar where Kravitch was a press the action button to grab the shotgun from the case. Proceed to your right to the top left corner of this room. The comm. Array is right on the table, destroy it & 3 more goons will pop up in the entrance of this room to settle scores with you. Without much hesitation, these 3 would be dead soon & you can claim some M-16 ammo from them.
Exit through where you enter from & proceed to the next destination, the Subway. The right hand side of the subway entrance, which is pitch dark contains a Flak Jacket. Use your torch light to find it or you can do what I do, run along the pitch dark walls & keep pressing the action button. Done with all the exploring, proceed to the gate entrance into the subway. You will find out that it's lock & you'll contact Lian-Xing(Sounds like "lee-on" when Gabe says it) After the conversation, exit out of this place & prepare to bust 2 more terrorist's ass while outside. Remember the terrorist whom was hiding among some crates & which you climb in to claim some M-16 ammo from, that's where you'll be going next. When you're in the room which you're supposed to be fire a shot against the window or you can just climb on to it & it will just shatter(huh?? What the !@#$) Once out of the window into the alley, you'll contact Lian again & she'll tell you 'bout the CBDC bomb squad over the vacant bank just south of here in which
you'll need to help out. Never mind that for a while. If you look around, you'll find a locked gate to yer right & an exit out of this alley to yer left. Go over to the   locked gate & use your gun to shoot open the lock, proceed over to the elevator call switch which is just in front of you.Press it using the action button & wait for the elevator to come out. Stand on the elevator & press action again to make the elevator bring you down to the lower level. Onward the underground Gabe will contact Lian again. The switch to open the door int eh subway is in here. Use your torch to locate it(on your right) & switch it off. Exit out & spray a few bullets into the terrorist whose on the top, trying to shoot you down. Collect his leftover ammo & proceed right out of this alley. Upon exiting, you'll hear gunshots.
Climb over the blue crate into the shooting zone. There's a Flak Jacket & a Sniper Rifle. Don't try to waste ammo on the hostile as they can't be totally wiped out. Enter back thru the bar as you backtrack. There'll be a goon waiting for you. Take care of him & hop on to yer next destination, Vacant Bank.
If you're observant, you'll remember that there's an alley right from where you started the game from. That's where you'll go thru to get to the bank. Try to stay far away from the police car parked among the exit of the alley. It may blow off anytime if yer trapped within a crossfire near it. Shoot down those pesky baddies on top of the roof tops & go into the bank where you'll be needed as assistance. There'll be 2 goons guarding & a CBDC to help out. Join him in the bullet-spray & follow him into the bank. Be careful of the gasoline tanks outside the bank( how in the hell did those end up here?) if they explode & you're along the explosion radius you'll be blasted dead. While entering the bank & leading to the area where the help is needed, there is a Flak Jacket crate. When you reach the bomb specialist , protect him at all cost from the pesky terrorists. Your objective will be completed when all hostile attacks are off. There is not only one route in this area. There's another one to your right from where you entered. There's a M-16 crate & a Grenade crate hidden among the shadows. Get them & move out. While out of the bank you'll meet more hostile attacks from the rooftops. Run past those as fast as you can while avoiding their fire. Return back to the subway scene.
The door into the subway will be opened. Upon entering, Gabe contacts Lian again. If yer using a Dual ShockŪ controller, it will vibrate when a train comes along the station. Proceed down to the 1st lower section of the subway. 6 goons will be waiting for you when you enter. There's a M-16 crate among the right side of the floor. While running along the left side of this floor you'll notice that there's a blinking square in your radar. Look around & you'll see the bomb in which you'll need to place a beacon (press action while near bomb) The bomb specialist will come again to dispose of the bomb. After that, return to the floor opposite of the bomb site & proceed to the end. There'll be 6 goons among the exit. When Gabe enters the 2nd lower floor, he contacts Lian. Stop going down as the door here will be locked. Go back up & hook left, there you'll see another exit. Go across there. While entering, there'll be 2 routes for you to choose. Use your torch & choose  the left one. You'll locate the switch on the wall, press it & go down the elevator. You'll enter another room, a red one. Go straight & turn left, there's a goon guarding the doorway. Stick a bullet into his head to end his pathetic life.  Climb onto the floor opposite of where you're and proceed all the way to the other end while taking out any hostile attacks in which you encounter. You'll meet up with Rhoemer & the time bomb. Shoot Rhoemer in his sorry head to end his life & sit back to watch some scenes. You'll be given the option to save after the scene.( finally….a save at last! )
