Product Description

Syndicate is the re-imagination of a cult classic franchise from 1993 - a unique action shooter set in a not too distant future, where Business is War. 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.

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.

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!

If you are having this problem its because the game is mistaking some piece of hardware in your system as a game controller. Some people have found it to be bluetooth adapters, 3rd party gaming pads, 3d connexion space mouse, etc.

There is no option to force a keyboard mode in the game, so we are going to hardcode/force to the game to do so.

Step 1) Download a HEX editor of your choice. I used HexEdit 4.0, it can be found easily with a web search.
Step 2) Navigate to the folder that contains the game's main .EXE file. (X:\Syndicate\System\Win32_x86_Release\)
Step 3) Save a backup copy "MSystem.dll", just incase you need to undo this fix.
Step 4) Open the file "MSystem.dll"
Step 5) Goto the offset of "0015F3FC" within the file.
Step 6) Change the next 3 Bytes from "0F 9C C0" to "30 C0 90"
Step 7) Save changes to the file.

This will permanently force keyboard mode. If you want to go back to using a Xbox360 controller, switch back to the backup copy of "MSystem.dll".

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. :(
