I admit I am ready for this game to show me some SP footage, the game looks solid enough and I love the cyberpunk setting of the Syndicate universe but some good SP footage would seal the deal for me.

why can't this FPS garbage have the REAl game released on XBLA like X-com is having?

Enemy Unknown is a XBLA game?

This isn't garbage, you need to get those eyes chequed.

I did and all I see is another flashy fps with no tactics and lack of cyberpunk charm.

I completly disagree, this have his own style going on, a few original ideas in the gunplay department too.

Looks very solid.

Looks like garbage here to but oh wait. That is wrong to think, isn't it?

Compare this bull to the amazing Riddick-series with it's revolutionary blend of gameplay between stealth, hand to hand combat and fps then this just looks bland.

Before Riddick was released people tought it was garbage too, "I movie game?" "garbage"

This game is undeservedly getting hate, first because it has the "Syndicate" name attached to it, second because is another "FPS".

The game looks fun to me, I don't know why it looks dull to some, it has some melee kills, slidding, as far as I can tell good weapon feedback and killing feedback, doesn't look generic to me, is Starbreeze we are talking about here, they know how to make good games IMO.

It just seems that this all hate it gets its undeserving.

Maybe is all pure Riddick and Darkness fans that are mad, I dont know.

Thae game may turn out garbage? yes it may.

But so far it looks promising IMO taht is all.

I just feel that Starbreeze have so much potential to make something really different but then they get stuck with another corridor shooter. We have seen this type of game so many times before. I want something new.

I might be overly negative but I just get this bad vibe from the gameplay demo they showed a while back.

It is easy to hate on this for not being like what a 'real' Syndicate game could be but take that away and you have something here that looks smart enough. It's much more my visual style and we can't for sure right now say it lacks. It may do

I think it's unlikely this will throw up much in the way of strategy like some of us might hope for, but a good game may still emerge. I played a lot of Syndicat back on the Amiga and to be honest my only real tactic i seem to recall now from that time was using a combined four men offensive each time- seemed different at the time though. I got fairly far into it actually but other than the fun aspect of researching and loading up my squad, i didn't use a whole lot of strategy where combat was concerned

Played it recently too and the idea of how Syndicate played back then is different from of my recent playthrough of the first 4 or 5 missions. I recall my friend finishing it as well and he wasn't what i would call a master strategist. Who knows

This could be a very good fps game though if you don't go in expecting it to mimick Syndicate. Hard of course when the bloody thing is called Sydicate, but like i say, maybe it wasn't as truly deep a strategy game out there in combat
Commented on 2012-01-18 01:33:00
I suppose the bigger thing with Syndicate though has been what it feels like to be controlling that squad of four men- even if you're still only engaged as one unit of four for most of the time. Nothing really feels like Syndicate in this sense and it's hard to imagine how single player could pull that off

Ok it got bullet timed but the guy needs to learn to summarize his thoughts. Not write a book.
