Satellite Reign looks like the true Syndicate sequel

EA's decision to reboot Syndicate as a first-person shooter wasn't well received even though the final product from Starbreeze wasn't a bad game, it still felt like a misuse of the license. Now, programmer Mike Diskett, who w...

Highlights for the time being include Max Payne 3 ($29.99), Spec Ops: The Line ($24.99), Syndicate ($14.99), The Darkness II ($12.49), Crusader Kings II ($9.99), and a bunch more. I fear for my bank account.

Review: Syndicate photo
Review: Syndicate
by Jim Sterling

Starbreeze Studios certainly turned heads when it unveiled its progress on a brand-new Syndicate game, although attached to many of those heads were scowling faces sporting sneers of disgust. Syndicate is yet another classic PC game that has "modernized" by mutating into a first-person shooter.

The isometric tactical violence of Bullfrog's classic 1993 PC title is a distant memory in a shooter that owes more to Deus Ex and BioShock than anything produced by Peter Molyneux's old studio. Starbreeze's world is one you've seen before, and not because you remember the game upon which it is based.

Syndicate launch trailer will probably give you a fit

Syndicate's launch is a mere five days away and I'm still no closer to deciding whether or not I want to actually pick it up, but I'm certainly interested. This trailer hasn't helped me make up my mind, but it was pretty coo...

Syndicate's DART 6 allows you to grief your enemies

A new trailer for Syndicate went up today, detailing the "DART 6" abilities that players will have at their disposal. The video details a lot of the stuff that yesterday's demo simply didn't have, making me feel much more co...

Syndicate will NOT be using an online pass

While even EA's single-player games have found excuses to slip in an online pass, the co-op fueled Syndicate is confirmed to NOT use one at all. According to EA, it's all about encouraging gamers to play it ... what an innova...

DTOID Extra: Getting tactical in Syndicate

I dunno if you guys caught the first video Anthony Carboni (of New Challenger) and I did for a level of Syndicate, but that whole level's now available for download as a free demo. Today, we've got our impressions of two OTHER levels we've played, where we get to talk about exciting stuff like gauss rifles and cyborg agents.

Boy, that Syndicate sure is a first-person shooter!

That is my initial thought after giving Syndicate's co-op demo a spin. When I say that, I don't mean to imply I'm one of those folk who hate a game just because it's bears the name of an older game in a different genre. I say that because, right now, there's nothing else to say about it.

That really is all Syndicate's demo tells you. You have three loadouts to choose from, with bog-standard weaponry including shotguns, assault rifles and sniper rifles. You can heal and revive your friends, and from there you just ... shoot. You shoot stuff in very grey environments until there's nothing left to shoot, then you move on to the next grey area and shoot more stuff.
