About
20 March 2015
  • Summary: Much to the chagrin of oldschool gamers, the new Syndicate shrugs off its PC strategy game roots and returns in the current genre du jour, a first-person-shooter. We aren't bothered by the change - it was 20 years ago, get over it - and instead embraced Syndicate for what it is rather than what it...

Game Over Online
1 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Back in 1993, Peter Molyneux (of Fable fame) produced a game with Bullfrog Productions called Syndicate. The idea was simple: in the not-too-distant-future you control a squad of four super-soldiers called “agents” whose goal was to sabotage rival mega-corporations, all the while upgrading your team...

  • Excerpt: The new Syndicate isn’t an instant success. Luckily the makers put down a first person shooter that has some qualities we like a lot. Unfortunately – especially for veterans of the original game like yours truly – this game is too far away from the first Syndicate and won’t ever make “classic”...

Review: Syndicate

New Gamer Nation

  • 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.

  • Summary: In 1993, an isometric strategy game titled Syndicate tasked gamers with managing the operation of a corporation and its agents in a dark and corrupted cyberpunk world. After an expansion pack and sequel, there were no more titles in the series from the original developers at Bullfrog Productions.

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...

  • 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...
  • 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.
