    Instant Classic - back when I was in school

    I am writing this review with more than a hint of nostalgia. The score reflects what it was back then. Now releasing a game like that would get poor scores. This game to me had it all. Cyborgs, squad based managment, ... Read Full Review

    Why hasn't this game been remade yet? The concept and execution were stellar and the carnage was unmatched.

    I can remember the day on a Civil Engineering expedition while standing with my group and taking elevations using a theodolite to take elevation measurements when a discussion of PC gaming was initiated. One of the guys... Read Full Review

    Syndicate is a very original, very appealing and very addicting.

    An often overlooked PC classic.

    I was (and still am) a big fan of movies like Blade Runner (director's cut), books like Neuromancer, and other dark sci-fi future works. Consequently, this game was a real treat for me. It takes place in a not-too-far-... Read Full Review

    Absolutely brilliant, highly addictive and long overdue for a remake... And pretty unique too.

    In the distant future, major corporations wage war to control the world, using cybernetic enhanced soldiers ("agents") as troops. The path to world domination consists of completing 1mission per region (usuall... Read Full Review
