I REALLY like how this game looks and seems to play.

Oh wow, Brian Cox narrated the trailer, and now they're using his likeness! (Screenshot 2)

He was perfect as Visari in Killzone.

Loved the recent gameplay video, sci fi shooters ftw, Its like the badass version of Deus Ex 3!

PS. Brian Cox is an awesome actor, great voice too.

Yeah that gameplay looked really good, like a more satisfying Deus Ex with a greater focus on the casual violence of the cyberpunk genre. No doubt there are similarities to DE but none of the clips of gameplay ever made me even remotely interested, it looked boring.

Syndicate however looks really kinetic and satisfying with the damage you do and the animation of switching shoulders when behind cover looks dynamic.

One to watch to be sure.

And so another interesting old series becomes an FPS. Originality eh?

If it was a RTS or whatever I wouldn't buy it.

So its a good thing in my book.

im definitively intrigued. Love the feel of the weapons. Seems like some of the combat movement still need a bit of work, but overall I like where this is heading.

I see a lot of Riddick. And that is NOT a bad thing. At first when we were treated with the teaser trailer I thought Starbreeze had been very inspired by a FPS on the original Xbox that I still hold very dearly called BreakDown. Well, now it seems Starbreeze didn't go quite that far...

But... I still don't see the Syndicate legacy shining through...

Reminds me of their previous games The Darkness and the Chronicles of Riddick, which I both really liked.

Looks overpowered.

Then you are part of the problem I'm afraid. It's no wonder the console market is swamped with identikit FPSs. It's really becoming quite tedious.

Deep Dive #1 - Origins -> nice, this brings back memories :)

new Syndicate -> another generic shooter, jippie, that's what the world has been waiting for...

I know you Guys like it,but for me..Thats NOT the Game I would Call Syndicate !
It's 3D and a FPS :(

Man,I feel really Disappointed was hoping for some top down view and more like the classic with some nice updated art and effects ! Even 3D would be fine..but on a 2.5D playing field !

But this,So bad !

Anyway,you guys enjoy !

This footage was shot on a Xbox 360? (use LS to get out of the dropship) If so awesome! Can't wait for some PC shots then!
Commented on 2011-10-14 09:19:23
another FPS? I think I'll pass.

Mindless FPS killing in a cyberpunk setting, as if we haven't seen a million of those already.
Where's the persuadatron? Open world vehicle driving? Augmentation upgrades? What part of that walkthrough had any "Tactical combat"?

Many complain when people compare this to Deus Ex, but how could you possibly not? Human Revolution has more in common with the original Syndicate's amount of interactivity, than this reboot has to its own roots. How pathetic!

The first game was mindless killing too, you were just a drone. Did you watch this walkthrough? It had persuading and augmentation upgrades when he extracted the chip from the Chang dude.

Are you mad or something?

REALLY dont like how your character moves/weapon bob. This has been an issue with all starbreeze games really. They give their characters a physical body, with actual weight, but it makes movement somewhat clunky. Hope that fix that. Otherwise it looks alright.

sadly for you the devs over at ea never said they were remaking the overhead classic (that would be a PSN/xbla title perhaps) ...
