Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Syndicate [Download] (Software Download)
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. :(
