Summary

An excellent and innovative game.

The Good

Well, the first thing you gotta love is the amazing intro sequence :-) Bullfrog have really outdone themselves with this one - beats even the X-COM intro.

But the game itself - WOW! One of the most challenging and innovative games ever invented! I played this one for hours, and would still do if I hadn't lost it... A true classic, Syndicate gives you challenging (not to mention FUN) missions in a relatively detailed environment, with the ability to research technological advancements for your operatives.

Sporting hours of endless play, it's one of the most innovative games ever invented.

The Bad

The sound effects/music are rather harsh and annoying... but the game's worth every beep.

The Bottom Line

A wonderfully innovative and well-done game you'll forever love.
