This game is pretty good. I wouldn't buy it, only because its so short, but its a really good game to rent. Its more like a movie. It controls really well and the story is really good. You should rent it.

I cant believe with what they did with the omega strain game, it was bad, i dident like it. All i know is that it was not syphon filter, it was a completly different game. If you dont play as gabe logan a lian, its no good. I really liked the second and third syphon filter games, but i wasn't much for the first syphon filter game, it was a little difficult and not too interesting. But i dont like omega strain at all.
I liked dark mirror, but it is kind of short, and not really any replay value. I only own a PS2, so i dont know the difference between the PSP version. Its back to basics with dark mirror, you play as gabe and lian and get the job done. It is straight forward, it did kind of seem like a hollywood action movie, but not really. The graphics were okay, there is a lot of shooting which is pretty cool. But not too many things to blow up or destroy, and you can punch and kick bad guys and beat them up a little bit. You get quite a bit of different weapons, machine guns, pistols, shotguns, different kinds.
The ending was good, you have to wait at the end of the credits and see the big twist in the plot. But the thing i dident like, is that when gabe kills the boss/bad guy, it was kind of weird, it dident even seem like gabe killed him, he just fell down dead or something, i dont know. And the plot is kind of good, i like how it shows gabe about to do his mission while they are discussing the mission in the cinematics, and it has some cool escort/protection missions. I like how gabe is all, "Lets get these scumbags."
If you want a nice revisit to how syphon filter originally was from the first three games, then you should play dark mirror, even though there is not much to offer from it. It was good, but not great.
