Summary: I found it to be far too fast paced. It seemed like it was constant battle with very little storyline. The customization was poor as well. The graphics were good and the overall idea was good, but the execution was lacking.
A better than average game hampered by technical issues.

Summary: The single player campaign of this game is well worth the price of entry as well as is the multiplayer, provided it doesn't break.I had an issue that while it might be limited to my ps3 is still a major problem. After playing the game for 20 hours or so I began to experience game breaking frequent 5 second or so long freezes. The game would rarely crash however every time it would do any sort of auto saving you would get a 5 second or so freeze.
Summary: It's unfortunate for StarBreeze (the devs of this game) that their game is so similar to Deus Ex Human Revolution. Both were in development at the same time, and yet the similarities are striking, from the cyberpunk Blade Runner inspired sci-fi world, to the storyline of cyborgs and a heavily connected world. The sad thing for StarBreeze, is that Syndicate is inferior to Deus Ex on every front. Visually the game is a mixed bag.
Summary: Syndicate unfortunately fails on a number of levels, causing this reboot to fall well short of fan expectations. First of all Syndicate is now a straight ahead FPS just like any other currently cluttering the market. Unfortunately it's also not a very good FPS. The movement of your aim would certainly suit someone playing on a PC but for console players its sensitivity will need to be turned right down, even then aim is still too wobbly.
Excerpt: Bonjourno, First things first in this review, I have to air my bias; I’m a pretty big fan of Starbreeze, those crazy Swedes have something a little special. I’ve only played two of their games and I think they’re just amazing they capture something a fair few games capture which is humanity.
Pros: Fun game, good voice actors, nice lighting, fairly interesting weapons and combat .
Cons: Too short, no story, lame rpg elements, useless powers .
After so many years so much disappointment!! Buy Deus Ex instead...

Summary: Eagerly anticipated this release after playing both previous versions of this game many moons ago and I'm disappointed. The geek in me has to confess that I don't like the way the original story line has been changed. EuroCorp agents in previous games were cyborg assassins given to human executives to complete missions set by EuroCorp.
Summary: Die Zukunft, die uns EAs neuester Ego-Shooter „Syndicate“ präsentiert, sieht alles andere als rosig aus. Wir schreiben das Jahr 2069. Die Politik besitzt keinen Einfluss mehr, stattdessen wird die Welt von Technologie-Konzernen regiert, den sogenannten Syndikaten. Diesen ist es durch eine technische Revolution – in den Menschen eingepflanzte Neurochip-Implantaten, mit denen sich so ziemlich alles steuern lässt - gelungen, sämtliche Macht auf der Erde an sich zu reißen.
Excerpt: Syndicate War a plutot vieilli avec le temps, et je doute fort qu'il puisse encore intéresser quelqu'un. Le jeu vous permet de prendre le controle, au choix, d'une secte ou du gouvernement (Ce dernier étant chargé d'empecher la secte d'arriver à ces fins - la domination du monde).
