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.

There simply are not many games out there like this. I honestly did not know what to expect when I downloaded the coop demo for this. The banner add had said 'Cyberpunk Action,' and that got my attention. I wouldn't say I am an avid follower of the genre, but there is some interesting stuff that falls under that banner (Blade Runner, Ghost in the Shell, Deus Ex, the Matrix, etc). Once it was downloaded and installed though, within an hour I knew I had to own the game.

I had my reservations, and my experience with the game (so far) has largely confirmed that this is far from a perfect title, but it is still an awful lot of fun. I will break this down into different segments, rating each section with the number of stars I would give it out of 5 in each of those sections. There's a mix of good and not-so-good here, and I will try to outline those things as I see them for the sake of those who might consider buying this game.

I will start by saying this is a game unlike most first person shooters you will play. Yes, ultimately you shoot the bad guys, but there is a greater level of complexity to it than that in Syndicate since your character has a computer chip implanted in his head had he can use that chip to alter the actions of people around him, to effect the environment by activating different systems, or to cause equipment malfunctions. How and when you use these abilities can greatly effect your experience in the game, much more so than tossing grenades.

GRAPHICS ****
I suppose its is mostly tradition that would have me start with graphics, though by this point in video games, we are reaching a point where most people are pretty happy with most of the things they look at. Syndicate does manage to look pretty good and create its own visual style.

Many gamers wonder... what?? ANOTHER FPS?? WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?? What happened to the old Syndicate??

Admittedly, this is the nail to the coffin for the old style Syndicate that we enjoyed in our childhoods. But I am also glad they evolved to make something different.

At first glance, yes it is an FPS. (WHAT?? I rather play MW3 or BF3... ??) Hold your horses, the emphasis is different.

The campaign is fun but is not the real point of the game. This game is made for multiplayer. And the producers made sure to make this game different from the regular FPS.

First off, Co-op campaign mode. This is admittedly fun, and make up a large chunk of the whole game. It is well designed and very entertaining, with its own storyline. It is very hard to find a game with good co-op campaign.

Second, multiplayer online feels very different from run and gun. Teamwork is very important if you want your team to win. I shall not say too much to repeat what online reviewers are already saying, but that is the direction the game is heading.

Overall, it plays more like Left4Dead than Call of Duty. So, no, it is "not another FPS". Many people who had negativity towards the game changed their minds after trying the multiplayer demo.

So do not judge this game too fast. Try it/rent it/play the demo if you are not sure. You might actually enjoy it.

"Syndicate" (2012) is an FPS re-imagined from an older 1993 real-time tactical PC game of the same name. Developed by Starbreeze, makers of the excellent "Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay" (2004) and the lesser "The Darkness" (2007), the futuristic world of "Syndicate" is controlled by mega corporations where a hostile takeover literally means going to war with a rival company. You play as a ruthless, high-tech mercenary working for one such company, who gouges a big metal spike into the ear or eye of certain victims, extracting the implanted computer chip from inside their cranium to use for upgrading various skills. Everything revolves around hacking and extracting data. The environmental aesthetic of the game is like "Minority Report" meets the lens flare of the new "Star Trek." It's actually one of the prettier games I've played on PS3, with a very unique sci-fi look, and while the aesthetic can make firefights difficult to negotiate, there's a "detective mode" type ability that can help by highlighting enemies. The game's two main shortcomings are: the campaign is a little too straightforward and brief, and very few players are online to play the 4 player online co-op with (if you can organize friends to jump on with you, co-op is a lot of fun). Despite this, I enjoyed it. "Syndicate" has a lot of thrills and a lot of style.

Note: make sure to play in 720p and not 1080p or the image will look unusually blurry.

A good sci-fi FPS and gameplay but after that there's really little to say it surpasses any of the other FPS an any real way though I was surprised to hear some very talented live actors giving their voice time on the game so kudos to that.

The graphics and effects are pretty amazing and the soundtrack is pretty catchy and like with some other games like Deus Ex and the like you can upgrade certain things when you defeat a boss or compete a mission. The problem though is as you play it just feels like you're playing a high tech version of COD or a new chapter in Deus Ex not terrible but it doesn't help the game any nor does the less then lackluster storyline that goes along with it.

Still give the game a shot while you'll feel some deja vu overall it's still a good game to play when you feel like it.
