    A great style of gameplay, the "Super Soldier" makes more sense in this game.

    After playing the demo more than 10 times, it was clear that this games Co-op feature would be more than enough to sell me on this game, and thus it was pre-ordered soon after. Tasting the single pla...

    Shameful use of a successful franchise name to market a game which has nothing to do with it.

    I played the original Syndicate a lot back in the day. And those were the days, when with each new game release you expected not another clone of something the market is already over-saturated with, b...

    While not a "proper" successor to its heritage, a good game nonetheless.

    Waste of money. Simple as that. Game would be okay if it was not for some annoying settings issues.

    Reboot of a very old franchise, takes a different spin this generation

    Rated on March 06, 2012 by y3ivan

    The first Syndicated (1994) was a strategy game with a bit of RPG elements spin into it. This was pretty much a cult classic during those times as the game was unique and had an awesome ambition. Near...

    Very stylish if somewhat shallow

    Rated on December 14, 2012 by kingnothing47

    I hadn't heard much about Syndicate before I picked it up on discount, I don't believe this iteration even sold many copies, so I was somewhat hesitant to shell out twenty dollars for it. So far I am ...
