In the not too distant future, the world is divided into regions controlled by mega-corporations known as Syndicates. In this future, business is war, and you are the weapon: the latest prototype agent for Eurocorp, one of the most ruthless Syndicates in a world dominated by greed. In single-player, embark on a unique sci-fi shooter adventure of corruption and revenge, as you utilize DART 6 chip-enhanced technology to breech, manipulate and control the wired world. Or form your own Syndicate in four-player co-op and dominate nine action-packed missions inspired by the original Syndicate game.

2069 - No longer governed by politicians, the developed world is divided up into regions controlled by megacorporations known as Syndicates. These Syndicates have revolutionized how the consumer interacts with the digital world. No longer does the consumer require a device to access the world's data and control their technology, they can do this at the blink of an eye via neural chip implant. Civilians flocked to be "chip'd" and enjoy all that their selected Syndicate has to offer; housing, medical, banking, insurance, education, entertainment and jobs. One complete package. One complete lifestyle. In return, the Syndicates gained unprecedented insights, and control, over the individual and their behaviour. With little governmental oversight, business has become war. The Syndicates will stop at nothing for ultimate market dominance. At the front line of this war are the Agents, the Syndicate's bio-engineered and chip-augmented enforcers. They can breach anything in the wired world including their enemies, their weapons and the environment that surrounds them, making them the most efficient and deadly technological weapons in the world. Take on the role of Miles Kilo, Eurocorp's latest prototype agent, and embark on a brutal action adventure of corruption and revenge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing blend of modern and old, genius Co-Op. March 13, 2012
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Allow me to make one thing clear from the very beginning: The heart and soul of this game lies in the Co-Op, and the marketing for it has always made that point very clear.

Now that this is out of the way, let's be tidy and start with the Single Player aspect of the game.

As far as length goes, a skilled gamer with a minimal preference to explore will complete this game in 7 to 9 hours under Normal difficulty (three settings: Easy, Normal, Hard). The bulk of the game is challenging, if not too hard, and so are the boss fights (Yeah, you heard it right, old-school bosses in a shooter. I loved that) so long as you realize that you cannot just fight them blindly: They require specific strategies to take down, much like ye olde bosses from ye olden games. Which is a huge plus in my book. Bosses grant character upgrades, but unlike in co-op, they are rather limited. More on this later.

The storytelling (notice storyTELLING specifically), as in how the MAIN plot is presented to you during actual gameplay, is pretty utilitarian. Nothing to write home about; Won't bore you to tears but it's not much better than a simple "meh". It'll simply suffice to give you a reason to go around. The voice actors are actually really good at their job. EUROCORP CEO Jack Denham is particularily amazing, there is something about his voice and performance that simply drills right into your soul.

Now, the thing with this game is that there is SO, SO MUCH STORY underneath the TELLING. What is presented to you is nothing but a veil of lies and deception: There are much deeper reasons, much deeper CAUSES behind the CONSEQUENCES that you get to experience during actual gameplay.

If you combined Deus Ex: Human Revolution with Modern Warfare, you'd get this game. Sometimes I forgot I was playing Syndicate. Pretty typical plot. Typical characters. I think they ripped off Deus Ex: HR pretty liberally. What makes the game standout in particular are the special abilities like persuade and hack and suicide. not enough to make or save the game honestly. I heard the coop is fun. never tried it. nothing memorable about this game. actually rebought the original Bullfrog Syndicate from 1993 on GOG.com. That was a great game. I remember playing it back in the day thinking how awesome it'd be if this game was first person like doom. i got what I wanted and regret it. Should've gone a different route with this one. Instead of linear nonstop shooting levels, should've gone with an open world or open level design. varying missions like the original. go more in depth with the economy and public morale system. a million different things.

Overall, if you're a fan of the series, this games terrible. If you're a fan of just shooters, this game is "meh."

1.0 out of 5 stars They never updated the Onscreen Control Info December 16, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I purchased this when it was on sale. It looked like fun. Kinda had a Deus Ex vibe going for it. After downloading and installing (had to use Origin) I noticed that all on screen prompts were using the Xbox buttons. That's cool, but I don't have a 360 controller plugged into my PC. I'm using a Mouse and Keyboard just like the majority of PC players.

So, I take a look at the settings and there is no way to disable this. That means when your playing the game and something quickly pops up on the screen with a tip or instruction its mapped to the Xbox button and not to what you have set. At frist I was a little pissed but I tried to play through it anyway. Didn't get more than a few minutes into the game when I noticed that my strafing was not working! I checked my settings and yes, they were mapped to the default keys, A and D.

I just quite the game and uninstalled. I'm glad it was only 5 bucks I spent. But I still feel like EA pulled a s***** lazy move with this. :(

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Fun, Good Action February 22, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download
Hey, if you can overlook the Origin, its good fun, and runs well even on medium spec laptops! make sure you have at least a quad core and a 512mb dedicated vid card though. It was optimized well.

Good fun, you'll enjoy it if you like action.

One more thing, when you install it from the disc, or the download file, make sure to install it in another folder besides Origin Games folder. Install it in C:\

For example
C:\ Syndicate (TM)\

Because there is some issues with the date checker and the original folder, at least for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars All about the Co Op. April 17, 2013
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Deus Ex borrowed a bit from the older Syndicate games, which is why some people say this game ripped Deus Ex off. I personally like this better than Deus Ex, but purely for the cooperative mode. Sadly, it is hard these days to find people to play with in a pick-up game. I love being able to upgrade your multiplayer character, and the weapon & application upgrading in co op is awesome as well. The only gripe I have is that most of the co op missions can be cheap if you try them solo, only because this mode is designed around supreme teamwork & healing/resurrecting one another if something happens. The game really should at least give you one bot if you are on your own... I've beaten half the co op missions on expert by myself, but when you get stunlocked by a Riotlance or Electron Mace, and have nobody to res you, it's annoying.

I think the only thing I reeeaaally miss from the original Syndicate & Syndicate Wars is the free roaming, where you could jack vehicles and blow up banks to get extra cash for research...or just blow up ANY building if you had an explosive weapon :D For as short as the single player campaign is, I also wish there was a Church of the New Epoch campaign like in Syndicate Wars. Overall, I'd say this game is definitely underrated, and underplayed. I really like it. I am waiting for the day when I get to play a top-down sequel to Syndicate Wars. If they used the graphics engine and control scheme from Alien Swarm, we could have a seriously awesome co-op action/rpg shooter!
