Syndicate (8.2/10)

To read the official full length review follow the link here: Syndicate.

Back in 1993, Peter Molyneux (of Fable fame) produced a game with Bullfrog Productions called Syndicate. The idea was simple: in the not-too-distant-future you control a squad of four super-soldiers called "agents" whose goal was to sabotage rival mega-corporations, all the while upgrading your team to make them more competitive. It played out as a real-time tactical simulation when on the battlefield, but also on a larger, Risk-esque world board as your corporation vied for global dominance. Apparently, it was something of a cult classic... not that I'd know, I found all this on Wikipedia! Look it up some time though, it actually sounds quite clever....

Fast-forward to 2012 and the game has been given the reboot treatment by Starbreeze Studios (known for The Darkness and The Chronicles of Riddick games). The new, shinier version of Syndicate shares the name, the basic premise, and not much else. Instead, we get yet another FPS in an over-inundated market... with enough originality and fun toys to make it worth playing.

Score = 8.2 / 10
