Worth picking up for FPS fans

I wouldn't say that Syndicate has a story that is ground breaking, but the single-player experience is good and interesting enough to justify a play through. The stylish action and fluid movement make you feel like you had been thrown into a pseudo 'Matrix' world of sorts. Environments vary and look pretty decent with the large amount of bloom effects.

Where this game really shines is co-op. Utilizing hacks and team work is VITAL to success in this mode. This becomes even more true if you are unable to play with 4 players. Most of my time spent playing co-op was with only one other person, 2 player co-op leaves close to no room for error if you wish to last more than 2 minutes.

Over all this is worth picking up and playing if you are interested in a vary stylized futuristic FPS.

Buy only for the CO-OP experience.

The Cooperative mode alone is worth the price of admission. This is a gorgeous, solid, pulse pounding shooter with a sleek cyberpunk style. The single player isn't the longest out there, coming in at around 6 hours, but that should not deter you. Grab four of your buddies, create your own Syndicate and go to war. The only thing that could make this package better, would be knowing that more CO-OP maps were on the way and adding a survival mode.

A spectacular Sci-Fi shooter

If you are looking for a great Sci-Fi first person shooter, look no further! Syndicate offers crisp visuals, fluid, innovative game play mechanics, and a decent story. The game is very well optimized for PC, and looks stunning and runs well on mid rage systems. The The gun play is fast and, as is expected by any top notch FPS, and the introduction of "breach" mechanics also adds a new twist to familiar game play. The sound is also exceptional, with sharp audio effects and gunshots. enemies and bosses are varied and enjoyable to fight. A great game!

Extremely fun co-op mode

The singleplayer is meh. But the co-op mode is excellent. It is comparable to the Spec Ops mode of Modern Warfare 2 and 3, but with customizable weapon loadouts, special abilities and boss fights. The co-op maps get rid of the uninteresting storylines and basically throw at you huge number of enemies and some interesting boss enemies. You have to fight them with extremely satisfying sci-fi weapons such miniguns, electric arc throwers, flamethrowers, shoulder-mounted lasers, auto-tracking grenade launchers, etc., all customizable and able to be leveled up.
