Taking place after Syphon Filter 2 (2000), Lian Xing is finally cured of the virus. However, Teresa Lipan got killed by Chance, making Gabriel Logan kill him. During the funeral, Gabe, Lian, and Lawrence Mujari are still trying to eliminate the Syphon Filter threat that is still going on. After killing a rebel Chinese general Shi Hao in Tokyo, Gabe and Lian escape. Lawrence manages to call the Senate and testify for themselves. The player controls the characters' past missions including the mission to Costa Rica. While one character testifies, the others are trying to save the world from the virus. Will Gabe and Lian manage to clear their names and save the world, or will they still remain fugitives? Only the player can find out.
WANTED: Stop Gabe Logan! - Agency Director
Did You Know?
The PK-102 assault rifle's design (based on the real-life AK-102) is changed for this game to resemble a more generic AK-series assault rifle. This was likely done to stay true to the 1980s-setting of certain levels (despite appearing in the Ireland, 2001 levels), because the AK-102 did not exist until the 1990s. The name "PK-102" however, remains unchanged. See more
The weapons menu incorrectly uses the picture of the Combat Shotgun from Syphon Filter
to represent the standard Shotgun. See more
Trust, Ms. Xing, would seem to be in short supply in your agency.
It got to be that way, yes.
But you trusted Gabriel Logan?
Of course I trusted Gabe. If you're going to be in a fire fight, there's no one better than Gabe Logan.
During the credits,we see overhead running shots of the Atlantic Ocean. At the end of the credits, we view the wreck of the S.S. Lorelli. A submersible's crane arms pick up a cargo crate with a biohazard logo on it (the Syphon Filter virus), we then hear the framiliar laugh of Mara Aramov and the game ends. See more
