Great Storyline with awesome Multiplayer, yet something was just missing.

Summary: This game had a lot of hype when it first came out. Now it is 2014 and I finally decided to buy the full version of the game, after trying the Beta 2 years ago and sampling it at my friends house. I am happy with buying it now since it is around 10 bucks rather than the 60 dollar price tag it had 2 years ago. I personally loved the story line of the game and it's overall concept. It reminded me of Deus Ex: Human Revolution actually.
A fun, fast-paced shooter in a great futuristic setting!

Summary: Amazing game. Syndicate is a fun, fast paced action shooter set in the near future. It's very visceral and extremely violent. The environments are amazingly engaging and the art style is a lot of fun. The mini-boss battles offer a good challenge that keep you on your feet. The story is a bit tired, and lacking, only mildly attention holding. The locales are impressive, New York City, a floating mega ship, old ruins.
Summary: Syndicate is a thrilling futuristic ride! I bought this game because of it's originality and amazing graphics. Syndicate takes place in the future, around 2069, where a company called Eurocorp designed a chip that allows others to hack into and make them commit suicide, fight on your side, and backfire. I love the graphics in this game! The HUD gives you a very futuristic look, and the models and textures are great! I love the fact that you can kill the innocent ;).
Summary: I really liked the graphics and visual style, and the hacking was cool gameplay mechanic. But the game felt short, and I wish there would have been more hacking and upgrading options. The story was a little hokey, but that can happen pretty easily with a sci-fi story. Though, the voice acting was good and done by some big-name stars. If they could merge Syndicate with Deus Ex: Human Revolution, I think that would be an awesome game.
Summary: If you're looking for an immersive single player campaign with a deep story, look elsewhere. The single player campaign is short, around 5-6 hours. The story is pretty generic & the action is not as fun as when you're playing with your friends in co-op. It's not terrible, but it's not great. It's kind of like Battlefield 3 where the single player wasn't that good, but the multi player was amazing.
