Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror

Aside from things that make holes in enemies, Gabe can draw upon gadgets such as a flashlight and the usual assortment of spy-game goggles. Also, a few areas are littered with convenient ziplines, which Gabe can use to slide across chasms. While shooting, if necessary.

With sharp graphics, the promise of online play modes and smoother gameplay than the dismal Omega Strain, Dark Mirror could be a strong return to form for the series.

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
