Video PC Xbox 360 PS3

As planned, EA released a demo of their upcoming FPS Syndicate which allows up to four players to play the co-op mode. As you will see, I haven't been of much help but in my defense, it was my frist attempt at the game. Don't hesitate to tell us what you thought about the game if you've given it a try.

It was fun for sure, a little bit complicated at first with all the HUDs and infos, but once you understand its fun.

Though I am not interested in co-op only played to get a feel of the controls and gunplay, its very nice.

I just need single player now to impress me.

here's a quote from Starbreeze -
No PC demo. Our team chose to focus its resources into making the game as great as it could be. We hope you see that on 2/21/12!
So apparently the PS3 and XBox versions aren't as great as they could be (or they are full of shit and the PC is just getting the shaft).

So, if you want to try out the game on the PC, you are going to have to pay for it first and then be out of luck for a return... Nice.
Of all the platforms where people would appreciate a demo the most, it's Windows.

ALWAYS BE BREACHING

This is a lot of fun! Full body awareness, sliding into cover, the apps, upgrading your chip with buffs, and that side-scope on the Kusanagi assault rifle is sick.

Fortunately there are other ways to "demo" games on the PC.

I was bored silly with this within seconds. It's just a generic shooter in every possible way. What a waste of the Syndicate name.

I honestly enjoyed it, although one of my friends didn't feel the same. Too much to do rather than shoot he said.

My only problem was it froze my xbox every time we lost connection to the server! But hey, it's EA!

No gore, typical minimum shooting blood splatter, and the demo is only online co-op.

I used a shotgun to skewer a dude in half right out of Darkness 2! So random but satisfying :D

Aiming was odd at times not sure if thats because the game falls under 30 fps at times?

What they're saying is "PC version is an afterthought and we have 5 interns working on it".

Played 3 more hours of it, and have now upgraded my Kusanagi Sniper Rifle to have a side-scope which is so useful in close quarters! The sniper is a BEAST, sometimes you can totally quick scope which feels so good in close areas.

Playing it like Darkness 2 where you can multi-task with the shoulder buttons is very effective, especially when reloading you can breach/heal dudes or change the apps with the D-pad. I love the huge acrobatic jump you can do when sprinting, totally Mirror's Edge like.

I love the skill paths, with putting in research projects for certain mods, but not having to do an arbitrary 100 kills with that weapon like in CoD.

Also, the revolver can also "gib" enemies in half, they in fact count how many enemies you gibbed, so there sort of is dismemberment.

Yup, that's when I first noticed the "gibbing", with the shotgun. And they weren't even upgraded.

The demo was fun. I liked the upgrade system. There seems to be a lot of time you can spend there, upgrading your character.
