21 April 2012
  • Excerpt: It seems Hollywood’s remake bug has finally caught the game studios. Having depleted all original ideas, EA chose to reinvent a classic 1993 tactical shooter as an FPS. Whenever making remakes it’s onus on the developers that they stay true to the idea of the original game and at the same time add a...
  • Pros: Beautifully designed futuristic world, Brilliant co-op campaign, Breaching mechanism
  • Cons: Overuse of the �light bloom� effect, Meagre single-player campaign, Frustrating boss fights

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...

  • 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.

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.

  • 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

  • Conclusion: Syndicate’s guise is thoroughly unoriginal and yet irrefutably stylish. Its guns aren't distinctive but feel great with every pull of the trigger. Breaching is debatably necessary and still every time it’s engaged.
