Review: Syndicate

New Gamer Nation
5 April 2012
  • Conclusion: Overall, Syndicate provides a great shooting experience with solid guns, fun hacking abilities, and a great co-op campaign. The story had potential but it never engages the player the way a better, more detailed story could have. We recommend this as a weekend rental with some friends, but you will probably forget about it later on in the year.

Xbox 360 Review - 'Syndicate'

WorthPlaying
11 March 2012
  • Summary: Syndicate delivers a unique and brutal sci-fi FPS experience set in a not too distant future, where business is war. Players take on the role of Miles Kilo, Eurocorp's latest prototype agent, and embark on an epic action adventure full of corruption and revenge.

  • Excerpt: Remaking a property long after its popularity has vanished can be a delicate ordeal. Using the name means the designers are looking to recapture the audience once had by a license while simultaneously making it accessible to new players, generally in a video game climate very different from when the original was launched.

  • Excerpt: If you think you know Syndicate because you played the classic PC strategy games back in the day, then you’re going to need to throw out that knowledge… save for the story.

  • 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.

  • Summary: While the single-player campaign leaves a lot to be desired, Syndicate really shines when it comes to the co-op multiplayer. Is this a successful reboot of the series? All signs point to yes.
  • Pros: Unmatched co-op campaign, Stunning vision of dystopian future, Fast-paced multitasking of weapons and abilities
  • Cons: Frequent choke points with infinitely spawning enemies, Tedious single-player boss battles, Story falls well short of its own ambitions, Overall uneven pacing and intrusive tutorials

  • Excerpt: Comparisons between Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Syndicate are inevitable. Both are recent reboots of beloved, long-dormant franchises, and both eschew the current modern-military cliché in favor of a sci-fi, cyberpunk aesthetic in which you battle monolithic overlords — bureaucratic in the former’s case, corporate in the latter’s. And if Human Revolution is three-quarters RPG and one-quarter shooter, then Syndicate is the opposite.
  • Pros: + Enjoyable gunplay; (mostly) great boss fights., + Slick graphics and art direction.
  • Cons: ? Does Brian Cox ever play a good guy in anything?
