Syndicate

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Starbreeze Studios certainly turned heads when it unveiled its progress on a brand-new Syndicate game, although attached to many of those heads were scowling faces sporting sneers of disgust. Syndicate is yet another classic PC game that has "modernized" by mutating into a first-person shooter.

  • Excerpt: Without the honour of working for Ablegamers and the burning need to tell the world just how terrible Syndicate really is, I would never have seen the end credits of this run-of-the-mill FPS roll. I think it was the first boss battle where I would have thrown down my controller in defeat; that's when I really started to rage.

Syndicate (PS3) Review

411mania.com
20 April 2012
  • Summary: Syndicate turns out to be a pretty decent game, but not all too memorable. This game would work best as an over the weekend rental since you can play and finish it rather quickly. The game has a solid story and presentation, and the hacking techniques is mixed into the combat quite well, but overall the game comes off as unpolished and incomplete.

  • Excerpt: The year is 2069 and world population has reached 15 billion. 57% are chipped and linked to their preferred corporation with the rest left out of sight and out of mind. The player acts as one of the chosen, an agent called Miles Kilo, mobilized to protect his corporation’s interests.
  • Pros: Fast and fluid gunfights, Excellent AI, Multiplayer is hard
  • Cons: Party chat crashes game, Multiplayer is hard

Syndicate PS3 Review

Console Obsession
19 March 2012
  • Excerpt: The Syndicate of 1993 was an isometric action game with strategic elements and, whilst 2012’s version bears the same name, it has little relation to Bullfrog’s well loved game however, and is instead an FPS, which is why, upon its announcement, it was met by so much ire by those with fond memories of the original game. The setting has similarities with last year’s Deus EX reboot, which results in it being a bit less interesting than it otherwise could have been.

  • Conclusion: No, it doesn't stay true to the franchise at all, yet Syndicate still manages to impress with both a well executed artistic vision and a thoughtfully implemented co-op mode that takes some fresh approaches.

Expert Review

Game Over Online
7 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Fast-forward to 2012 and the game has been given the reboot treatment by Starbreeze Studios (known for The Darkness and The Chronicles of Riddick games). The new, shinier version of Syndicate shares the name, the basic premise, and not much else. Instead, we get yet another FPS in an over-inundated market... with enough originality and fun toys to make it worth playing.

Syndicate Review

PlayStation Universe
5 March 2012
  • Summary: A solid shooter with relatively interesting unique features, Syndicate's co-op outshines the otherwise lackluster single-player campaign.
  • Pros: Truly fun co-op, Interesting abilities, Solid shooter mechanics
  • Cons: Cliche narrative and poor pacing, Prescriptive boss battles, Annoying and distracting lens flares
