  • Excerpt: As a culture, we often seem obsessed with the future. Speculative fiction usually focuses on the day after tomorrow, or next year, or next century. It offers us insight into what we might become, good or bad. It helps shape our hopes and dreams, and provides a warning of what might come to pass if we sacrifice ethics and ideals to get there. Writers like Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein, Arthur C.

  • Excerpt: Syndicate reminds me a lot of 2010’s Singularity – both titles drew me into their fiction, only to fail to achieve the promise of it. They differ in why they both failed. Where Singularity ’s plot was simply delivered to the player in uninspired ways, Syndicate fails to make players care about its reality by not providing them with anything to rally against or fight for.

  • Conclusion: There really isn't a lot more to say about this game. Although it has an interesting visual style, the graphics are generally pretty standard. The soundtrack is cool, as are the sound effects and the voice talent of the game features the authoritative presence of Brian Cox and the sexy Rosario Dawson. Still, even their voice acting doesn't help salvage the game from a completely crappy and underwritten story.
  • Pros: Challenging firefights, a few cool weapons and some attempts to add a unique flavor to FPS combat, solid multiplayer co-op experience;
  • Cons: Little to keep you engaged in the single-player campaign, good voice talents wasted on a game with a flimsy story.

  • Excerpt: Topple rival corporations as a digitally enhanced super-soldier. Hold on… Doesn’t that sound a bit like… If there’s one thing that the videogame world will never grow tired of, it’s the sci-fi fps genre, and while the market never seems to be massively saturated with them, there has been a steady stream of these games for as long as I can remember. Obviously with this being the case, the genre has had many hits, as well as a fair number of misses.
  • Pros: Solid shooting, Some interesting gameplay elements
  • Cons: Doesn’t last long, Pretty linear, Not very original

  • Conclusion: Pas vraiment un mauvais titre que ce Syndicate, mais plutôt le moyen dans toute sa splendeur. Sans être catastrophique, il ne surprend jamais vraiment, ni par sa réalisation, ni par son gameplay, et encore moins par son scénario. A réserver aux accrocs du genre qui ont besoin de se défouler.
  • Pros: Quelques bonnes idées, Le multijoueur proposant de vrais scénarios, Le Dart 6
  • Cons: Moyen tout du long, Techniquement faiblard, Vite redondant, Solo un peu court

  • Excerpt: Bara för att du har stora vapen betyder det inte att du klarar allting med vilt skjutande. Det krävs hjärna också. Tur att din är uppgraderad. En gång i forntiden, ungefär samtidigt som dinosaurierna och ett ensiffrigt antal TV-kanaler, fanns ett spel som hette Syndicate. 1993 närmare bestämt. Det var skapat av legendariska spelutvecklaren Bullfrog och var våldsamt och väldigt underhållande.

  • Excerpt: C’est sous la forme d’un FPS futuriste que la licence Syndicate revient à la vie, près de 20 ans après avoir marqué au fer rouge le monde du jeu vidéo. Une nouvelle orientation pas vraiment gagnante. 1993, Syndicate voit le jour des mains de Peter Molyneux (le créateur de Fable et de beaucoup d’autres univers avant) et de son studio Bullfrog.

  • Conclusion: El Syndicate que hoy distribuye EA ha sido desarrollado por StarBreeze Studios y es un título basado en la franquicia del mismo nombre que fue lanzada en el año 1993. Adaptado a nuestros tiempos, el actual Syndicate ha pasado a ser un shooter en primera persona mientras antaño fue un título de estrategia en tiempo real bajo un entorno de perspectiva isométrica. Peter Molineaux fue uno de sus diseñadores además del fundador de Bullfrog Productions, su productora.
  • Pros: - La ambientación cyberpunk., - El DART., - Variedad de armas., - No es necesario un pase online.
  • Cons: - No está doblado., - Posibilidades poco explotadas., - Linealidad., - Escenarios desorientantes.

  • Excerpt: Att starta om en så älskad och klassisk serie som Syndicate var en ganska modig manöver från Electronic Arts sida. Hela projektet har fått utstå en hel del hat från spelares sida ända sen vi fick reda på att spelet likt sina föregångare inte är ett taktiskt strategispel utan ett actionspel ur förstapersonsperspektiv. Nu när jag har smält både kampanj och kooperativa spellägen har jag svårt att påstå att denna radikala förändring nödvändigtvis var av ondo.

  • Excerpt: Presque 20 ans après son règne sur PC, Syndicate revient sous les traits d'un FPS. Si la mutation n'a rien de dérangeant en soi, il ne fait pas l'ombre d'un doute qu'une telle licence méritait un meilleur traitement que d'être changée en un shooter générique et sans âme.
