Originally a real time strategy game released in 1993, Starbreeze reimagines Syndicate as a first person shooter.

You and me both.
These remixes are free on the game page on facebook. The only thing I liked about this game. The music.
The sad thing about these reviews is the page comes up and you immediately see te score. The good thing about that is that it makes you want to see why it got that score.
blurry, blurry color
From the sounds of it, the campaign doesn't sound like a lot of fun at all. Still, the multiplayer might be fun for a weekend rental. Nice work Jared!
This game isnt the best but it doesnt deserve some on the criticism it gets, even jared said its a good gamer until you find something better. Jared didnt mention this, but starbreeze pushed for this game not to have online pass and despite EA's policy of every game having it. Starbreeze was looking out for the gaming community and not just their wallets, and they succeeded, they got it by EA with no online pass.
Now EA is going to say well this proves that games wont succeed without online pass, but i bought syndicate, and if you miss the way games used to be you should too.
Besides, being generic doesnt mean being bad, besides deus ex there really isnt much like it anyways.
Had a feeling this wouldn't get a good score due to EA wanting the reboot as a FPS although on paper, it did have some interesting ideas.
Multiplayer doesn't look bad. I really like the way the bullet interface and the rest of the hud follows your movements and acts like the chip in your head displays it.
Move along nothing to see here back to Mass Effect 3
Poor poor Syndicate...what have they done to you?
Syndicate should have gone the way of XCom and made sure to come with an RTS game along with this FPS reboot so that fans wouldn't be able to get pissed. Instead, the fact that Syndicate was 100% rebooted makes its failure all the more glaring. Atleast I'd admit that the XCOM reboot looks like it would be a little interesting, and if I hate it, I'd have enemy unknown to fall back on!
the original game was a great game . then they tried to made a fps reboot for this series and failed miserable also it was on screwattacks top 10 worst reboots. now thay tried it agein and made a bad fps. so the lesson is DON'T MAKE A GREAT UNIQUE GAME A FPS!!!
Oh god, the bloom. Why is there so much bloom?
What the... why is it rated 9.0/10 on my rating by default? That ain't right.
It really looks like a bad Deus Ex:HR rip off if you ask me...
yea same. they should make the score part of the video, and people should give their rating in the forums instead.
well at least there's color.
Another edition to the list of forgettable FPSs released since Call of Duty: 4... Main stream gaming should be more than just POV camera angles and crosshairs...
I completely agree with that.
