First 10 minutes PC

Syndrome was recently released on PC and it gave us a bit of a hard time. Despite its atmospheric setting and its lightinh effects, the game is overall too dated for its own good. Playing with a controller is not pleasant at all due to the lack of precision in the camera movements, but even with a keyboard and a mouse, it is not fully enjoyable. One of the problems is that the framerate, though apparently stable at 60 fps according to Mirillis or Steam, is never smooth. The old-fashioned game design is another, though some older players might actually dig it somehow. We have prepared 4 videos so you can make up your own mind about the game, but it's hard for us to recommend for now as it really is not that engaging to play. At least for us...

Visually looks a lot like DOOM 2016.

It seems to be inspired by Alien Isolation : "find the Keycard in the medical bay"... Quite similar to the objective on the fitfh mission of AI.
Anyway, the game looks great, that's a shame the framerate isn't smooth.

Nothing comes close to Alien Isolation in terms of gameplay in this genre.
I loved Soma's atmosphere tho.
Still trying to like Outlast but Alien "ruined me"...
I will try this game still.
