hilarious. And ya this game was awesome, but omg was it hard.
altho had looked at the new one and it didnt look near as interesting.
Fun to watch. I vaguely recall playing this game. Love the rats nest of wires and peripherals all around the gaming studio setup. So typical. lol.
Blast from the past!! We used to call this the best game on one disk...and back then we meant a High Density 1.4mb disk!
Danny was the best thing the happened to Gamespot in recent years. Thank you for representing PC gaming in this website.
Ubik.. Damn. I think for the Playstation 4 I may set up a new PSN account in remembrance of the guy, what an absolute machine :')
Elroy on the other hand... Bloody hell. Haven't laughed that much in a fair while!! Haha. Legendary.
Brilliant video! :D
So damn funny but still it's a shame u didn't show Ubik's grave i was so curious :D (salute) Also next time try Crazy Football please.
Danny still never resolved a voice change, has he...? Also in terms of baby fat looks like he has acquired some new 'depth', a late, stubborn claim to boyhood, is this?
I remember playing this when it was given to me on floppy disk xD I actually like Cannon Fodder 3 to, being more my gen , and still maintains the same style.
@dannyodwyer A couple of suggestions. Marco's Magic football, Poltergeist, and finally - Comix Zone. Partly because I never got further than the second level about 300 times, but also for it's quite intuitive gameplay mechanics and still awesome graphic design. The sound of guys inexplicably globuling into the ground and then saying something inaudible to human kind has stuck with me ever since. Also, I wished that when my dog died he'd make the shrieking sound of those flying, sharp, black tampons - instead of just shitting himself dry.
UUUBBBIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!! *deep breath* NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
CBS Interactive should buy GOG then figure out how we can all play these brilliant classic games in browser format through GameSpot.
This game looks tremendous; it is a run-n-gun game that stands out; other game recommendations are: Gunstar Heroes  and Legend of Kay 
OMG I remember going from school to my mom's office and playing this (along with another game called Caveman I think, but I kept calling it Titus cuz of the dev logo), I was like in 1st or 2nd grade, I had no ideea wtf is going on but it was fun. Back home I had an HC computer with games like Sai Combat, Saboteur, Barbarian so this game was so amazing for me at that time. Ah...some good and simpler times
I played this on my trusty Amiga 500 back in the day. If any of my guys died I always restarted the mission. Cleared the game with the original troop like a boss. Most folks who played this tried to keep Jools alive at least.
Hey you know what. This made me remember...You guys should play the original Syndicate. I cleared that game with just 1 character. I never brought four agents on any mission. The last mission was a bit troublesome though.
But yeah Syndicate. It's fun so DOO EEET
