Somewhere between the roomfuls of civilians cowering from his indiscriminate firstperson weapons fire, and his best work pal putting bullets into the skulls of an entire train’s worth of helpless innocents, you’d think Syndicate enforcer Miles Kilo...

Despite an economic downturn, massive corporations all over the world continue to grow. Some sectors of the technology industry suffer, but others, like Apple and Google, continue to grow and change and introduce new product categories. When Syndicate...

Syndicate is a futuristic first person shooter developed by Starbreeze, the team behind the Chronicles of Riddick games. Set in 2069, it plays like a typical sci-fi shooter with advanced weapons and useful player abilities. This is not a new...

At first glance, Syndicate looks a lot like Deus Ex: Human Revolution. As you play through the game however, it becomes evident that the similarity exists only in the representation of an oppressive, bleak future for humanity and of course, cheap...

Syndicate is a re-imagination of the video game of the same name that was released in 1993 and followed up in 1996 by Syndicate Wars. The original games were published by Electronic Arts and developed by Bullfrog whereas the re-imagined version is...

Syndicate doesn’t do justice to the name, but it’s a perfectly serviceable solo shooter with an excellent co-op mode. What's disappointing is that with some more imagination, more cybernetic toys to play with and more interesting ways in which to use...

Syndicate finds a personality of its own in its expansive and more tactical co-op mode, but the singleplayer is a deflatingly humdrum shooter....

When 2K announced the new XCOM fans were up in arms. How dare they turn a classic PC strategy game into an FPS? However, just as the last trailer for that game made it look more like classic X-Com 2K pulled the surprise punch of Firaxis’ XCOM: Enemy...

I actually don't think remakes are an inherently terrible thing. In between the flood of Footloose and Arthur remakes are gems like The Departed or The Thing. At the very least, I no longer bristle at the idea of a remake, whether movie or video game;...

You may remember the original Syndicate as an isometric real-time tactical game that came out in an age when sprites were the norm and loading a game through a DOS prompt wasn't all that dated. Well, forget what you know, because the new Syndicate is...

Syndicate hints at a fantastic puzzle meta-game, but relies on bullets flying to get through every level. Where the story walks a familiar road, the cooperative campaign’s tough-but-fun arcade action makes up for the missteps. Though uneven, Syndicate...

Our review of Syndicate is currently in progress. While I've completed the single-player campaign, I've yet to spend an adequate amount of time with the multiplayer to weigh in. We'll update this review to cover multiplayer and add a score later...

International Review By Eurogamer on 70

Jeg skal være ærlig og sige, at det var med en slet skjult begejstring, at skiven med Syndicate røg i PS3'en, forud for denne anmeldelse. Det var Bull Frog, det legendariske spilfirma, der også stod bag titler som Dungeon Keeper og Theme Park, der...

Syndicate - TestWem der Name Syndicate nicht erst seit ein paar Monaten bekannt ist, der gehört wohl zu den Spielern, die noch das originale Syndicate, aus dem Hause Bullfrog gespielt haben. Damals, genauer gesagt im Jahre 1993, war der Titel aber...

In Kürze ist es soweit – das Remake des Kulthits „Syndicate“ aus den 90er kommt auf den Markt. Kontroversen um USK-Freigabe und Genrebruch begleiten den Release, doch unserer Meinung nach zählt am Ende nur die Qualität. Also durchlief der...
