SYNDICATE

Manufacturer's Description

In the not too distant future, the world is divided into regions controlled by mega-corporations known as Syndicates. In this future, business is war, and you are the weapon: the latest prototype agent for Eurocorp, one of the most ruthless Syndicates in a world dominated by greed. In single-player, embark on a unique sci-fi shooter adventure of corruption and revenge, as you utilize DART 6 chip-enhanced technology to breech, manipulate and control the wired world. Or form your own Syndicate in four-player co-op and dominate nine action-packed missions inspired by the original Syndicate game.

Syndicate is the re-imagination of a cult classic franchise from 1993 - a unique action shooter set in a not too distant future, where Business is War. 2069 – No longer governed by politicians, the developed world is divided up into regions controlled by megacorporations known as Syndicates. These Syndicates have revolutionized how the consumer interacts with the digital world. No longer does the consumer require a device to access the world’s data and control their technology, they can do this at the blink of an eye via neural chip implant. Civilians flocked to be “chip’d” and enjoy all that their selected Syndicate has to offer; housing, medical, banking, insurance, education, entertainment and jobs. One complete package. One complete lifestyle. In return, the Syndicates gained unprecedented insights, and control, over the individual and their behaviour. With little governmental oversight, business has become war. The Syndicates will stop at nothing for ultimate market dominance. At the front line of this war are the Agents, the Syndicate’s bio-engineered and chip-augmented enforcers. They can breach anything in the wired world including their enemies, their weapons and the environment that surrounds them, making them the most efficient and deadly technological weapons in the world. Take on the role of Miles Kilo, Eurocorp’s latest prototype agent, and embark on a brutal action adventure of corruption and revenge.

FEATURES:

  • Chip Enhanced Gameplay: Slow down time, see through walls, and breach your enemy and everything digital in the world with Dart vision – A neural DART6 chip implant that allows you to interface directly with the Dataverse.
  • 4-Player Online Co-op: Assemble your Syndicate for global domination. A 4-player, online co-op experience like no other, with chip enhanced gameplay and 9 missions re-imagined from the original Syndicate.
  • Visceral FPS Experience: Utilize an upgradable arsenal of futuristic weapons, armor and ear to annihilate your enemies and harvest their chip technology for personal advancement and sinister corporate greed.
  • Sci-Fi Fiction: Immerse yourself in the world of Syndicate 2069, with a world-class sci-fi story experience, written by bestselling author Richard Morgan.

I will try to make this simple for potential buyers.

Syndicate is a fast paced, high action and visceral FPS.

The single player campaign clocks in at about 6-8 hours on a proper difficulty setting. While the world and setting are well realised the story is a mixed bag, I knew at all times what the actual plot was but it was not very compelling or engrossing and the player character is a silent witness throughout. However the game benefits from a Hollywood cast , including Brian Cox and Rosario Dawson, that really brings up the cut scenes and dialogue. It has a great cyberpunk feel but also that kind of 80's action sci fi feel from such films as Terminator , Total Recall and Robocop, also of course such films as Blade Runner are a source of influence.

The Multiplayer is exclusively Co-operative and is excellent. You team up with up to 3 other "Agents" for a team of 4 and play through a collection of missions/scenarios made exclusively for the MP. The matchmaking is fast and there are still players and games up and running at time of writing. I had no issues finding a game. If you have a couple of mates who enjoy co-op games and are stuck on Rainbow six Vegas or don't like COD sepc ops then this is a must try.

Gameplay in general is smooth/ fast and violent. The feel of the shooting and especially the first person cover mechanic reminded me a lot of Killzone 3. So if you liked Killzone 3 and want something similar or Deus Ex was not balls to the wall enough for you. Give this a go.

Eagerly anticipated this release after playing both previous versions of this game many moons ago and I'm disappointed. The geek in me has to confess that I don't like the way the original story line has been changed. EuroCorp agents in previous games were cyborg assassins given to human executives to complete missions set by EuroCorp. In the previous games you played the part of the human executive which made your agents somewhat expendable - and it some parts of the game necessarily expendable. Now it seems you play the part of the Agent in what is yet another FPS that seem to litter the computer game stores.

The game itself... graphics quite good but certainly not the best I've seen on the PS3. A very frustrating part of the game for me is the amount of doors that look like they can be opened/used. But once you arrive at them you find out they're just part of the wall detail - something that was common (and forgivable) in FPS games ten or so years ago but certainly not now. Maybe that's just my gripe! Another huge annoyance is the the fact that EVERY (and I mean EVERY) inaminate object is name tagged!! Why does a beer bottle have to be labelled as "beer bottle?" Why do I need to know that's it's a beer bottle as soon as I walk near it? Another very annoying graphic problem is that with some weapons your remaining ammo counter is displayed in the centre of the screen on top of your gun - right where you're trying to aim!! All in all - the screen seems very cluttered with useless information at times.

Talking of the weapons, they seem slightly uninspired compared with the array of futuristic weapons available in the previous games. Additonally, "Breach Mode" has now replaced Psycho Gas/Persuadatron/etc and gives you option to briefly control enemies.

Reasonably hard but a great game and the graphics are good. You could say it's slightly samey in places but I personally really enjoyed it though. If you're into first person games this could be a good option for you.

STORY
You play as Kilo, a special agent of Eurocorp; a powerful 'Syndicate' which has embraced the use of neural implants known as DART 6 chips. Rival Syndicates throw themselves into corporate espionage in a bid to dominate the 'chipped' world, leaving it up to the 'Agents' to carry out a variety of carefully executed attacks. There is more to your past than what you have been told, further embroiling you in all out war between major Syndicates, which will determine the future of the world.

The cyberpunk theme of the story is its strongest asset. There is also an interesting backdrop to the technological advancements of the Syndicates, juxtaposed against the ruins of the 'unchipped' society.

GRAPHICS & SOUND
From the outset it's evident that plenty of polish has gone into the visuals. The cyberpunk setting brings out a plethora of lavish colours and luminescent hues. There is almost a Blade Runner like quality to the presentation – neon signs light up darkened areas, lighting streaks through shoddy buildings, and there are also futuristic flying machines constantly hovering over your head. This futuristic depiction of Los Angeles contrasts minimalism against the rotting underbelly of the city.

The DART 6 chip puts its own spin on the presentation, changing the outlook of the environment and overlaying it with augmented vision. The effect is very stylish, simplifying the colours, yet giving key objects the detail they deserve. Character models are well crafted, accompanied by solid animation. Voice acting is strong, especially from the celebrity talents of Brian Cox and Rosario Dawson.

Syndicate keeps the action indoors a little too much, which is a shame as it puts a real stranglehold upon the imaginative art direction in outdoor areas.
