Syndicate Wallpaper 3

This game is all out fun! A maker of the 1993 title Syndicate and opposed to most makers they got this one right.

Let us begin by getting the only critique out of the way. The story is predictable and overdone in relation to today’s movies and games. You are an agent for a corporation that is at war with other corporations for a larger control of the world. There are no countries anymore just massive conglomerates. All these corporations have become so successful through selling chips that are integrated into the cerebral cortex of consumers which allows them to connect globally to anyone else and blah blah blah. Originality score, completely zero.

Onto more insane aspects: the shooting, movement and cover system is as fluid as any great FPS of late. I did not come across any moments when I felt I was let down by the games mechanics. Moving from cover to cover whilst shooting everyone in sight in the pip and increasing your rampage score is just unbelievably awesome.

Yet, this awesomeness does not end there because agent’s chips have the ability to access enemies’ chips and cause the enemy to have a tremendously bad day. There are three different abilities: backfire which sends two or three enemies to the floor and makes them more vulnerable to damage, suicide which is self-explanatory and persuade which cause one enemy to join your side until all other enemies are dead at which point your ally then kills himself.

When those three abilities, a fluid game-engine and fantastic graphics are all combined it leaves the gamer smiling! One more thing though, “Dart 6” your chip that allows you to slow down time and take less damage for a limited period, which means that not only are you overpowered but you are also as accurate and effective as 100 spec-op troops at any given moment.

If this isn’t appealing to you yet because I make it sound like you just can’t die and you are a “real” gamer then don’t worry because on the hardest level you will die plenty. Thus it offers an overpowered character that is just as susceptible to damage as your enemies are. Which brings me onto the AI, it is excellent! The enemies are expert marksman and have balls made of steel that were forged from the sun’s core; this makes for a seriously edge-of-your-seat experience.

In addition to your three abilities and the Dart 6 ability, you also are able to upgrade your character so that you die a little less. So ultimately this game takes everything that has ever been exhibited in innovative FPS’s and mushes them together, low and behold it works perfectly!

Syndicate is a must buy and will result in a good 4 hours of off the chain enjoyment. As long as you can get past the generic storyline you will undoubtedly have an epic time!
