    With that awesome backgound i don't understand why the developers created just another generic FPS.<br />

    Rated on February 22, 2012 by snake8304

    Well i had play the old syndicate 19 years ago and i must say that THIS GAME doesn't relate in anyway to the original,but as a fps is not a bad game is just painfully generic. I really wanted to like ...

    Recreating a classic game in a new genre runs an overwhelming risk of failure. Not only must the product satiate fans of the original experience, the new game also needs to stand on its own with succe...

    In an already saturated FPS market, how will Syndicate stand out in the crowd?

    Rated on March 05, 2012 by Mintymatti017

    In a video game market already saturated by first person shooters how can Syndicate come along and shine above the rest... well it probably can't. Syndicate takes place in 2069 where the future is run...
