** The changes of gameplay between the PS1 trilogy and the PSP/PS2 continuity. One half of the fandom criticize the PS1 trilogy for keeping the stagnant gameplay and welcome the significant changes in the newer games, the other half dislike the changes in newer games such as the absence of combat roll in ''Dark Mirror'', 'unnecessary' romantic sub plots and that they just prefer the PS1 trilogy.

** Some missions in the PS1 trilogy feature super-secret military base with advanced technology hidden in a rather ordinary, if not remote village in real life. This did not escape the fans who actually lived in said area.

* ToughActToFollow: ''Syphon Filter 2'' is still considered by majority, if not all fans of the series as the best Syphon Filter game ever for many reasons. [[NintendoHard The challenging difficulty setting of enemies can do head shots]], the availability of PlayerVersusPlayer mode, [[{{SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic}} background soundtracks that emphasized both suspenseful atmosphere and high adrenaline action better than other SF games]], [[RealPolitik 'Realpolitik' based plot]], [[MyCountryTisOfTheeThatISting and the fact that the game developers are not afraid of criticizing their own government policies]], you name it.

** The third game attempted to follow the second game's success formula but fell short in both storyline and music category.[[note]] Majority of the third game is WholeEpisodeFlashback and the Christoper Stevens who co-wrote SF3 soundtracks with Chuck Doud put more emphasis on suspense than high-adrenaline action. Needless to say, many fans considered SF3 soundtracks as boring.[[/note]]
