Trivia

1001 Video Games

Syndicate Wars appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

German version

In the German version, all blood and the civilian's cries of fear were removed.

Prime number

On the CD is a file MISC\PRIME1.TXT which is ~260KB. It starts with: "The Largest Known Prime, 2^859433-1 (258716 decimal digits) = 129498125604[...]". This was the largest prime number at that time. The largest prime number found in 2008 is 50 times longer, so this file would have been around 13MB!

References

Some vehicles (such as the car and the truck) are based on the designs of Hi-Octane, a little known racer also released by Bullfrog a year before.
