Giant Bomb (Feb 21, 2012)
The world view and ideas put forth in this Syndicate reboot are decidedly well-worn territory, but it's still a world worth exploring, mostly thanks to Starbreeze's continued gift for crafting first-person action games that don't feel like just another Shooter of the Day experience.

There are sure to be players who wont give Syndicate a chance based on the baggage it carries as a reboot to a cult hit. But Starbreeze has taken the fiction of the original and made a smart, slick, tactically engaging shooter, aided by a strong sense of presentation, great music, and good voice acting. It's not a radical evolution of the futuristic shooter, but Syndicate is an uncommonly well-assembled torch-bearer for the cyberpunk legacy that spawned it, and there are worse futures to look forward to.

Syndicate isn’t just your run-of-the-mill shooter – which is hardly surprising since Starbreeze is behind it – instead what you have is an empowering shooter set in a far from idyllic futuristic world that puts the power of technology at your fingertips. Once you’ve finished with the relatively short single-player campaign, prepare to lose a lot of time in the game’s addictive and surprisingly deep co-op. Starbreeze’s Syndicate isn’t the RTS you may all remember, but it’s certainly an FPS you won’t forget any time soon.

If you love co-op it’s a must buy, if you like single player FPS it’s a must buy, if you like futuristic dystopias it’s a must buy… just buy it already. I’m tired. I was up all night on the co-op.

Starbreeze har gjort ett utmärkt jobb med ljud, grafik och action. Storyn kunde vara fylligare och efter ett tag blir striderna något enahanda. När det är som bäst är dock Syndicate riktigt lysande. Känslan av att man vill ha lite mer dröjer sig kvar och det är ett gott betyg.

Syndicate turns out to be a pretty decent game, but not all too memorable. This game would work best as an over the weekend rental since you can play and finish it rather quickly. The game has a solid story and presentation, and the hacking techniques is mixed into the combat quite well, but overall the game comes off as unpolished and incomplete.
Hasta los Juegos (Mar 07, 2012)
En resumen, Syndicate es un shooter que te hará pasar un buen rato en modo campaña, y que te atrapará en modo cooperativo. Simplemente no intentes compararlo con 'Deus Ex: Human Revolution' y no te defraudará.
GameSpot (Feb 21, 2012)
Syndicate is a game of thrills and missed opportunities. And so it's important to know what you want from this shooter before you commit. Come to it for the thrills of joining a team and mowing down gunners like so many weeds in a Colorado research facility. Come to it for a chilly vision of the future, where the minds of meddlers can be altered with a simple computer program. There are numerous games better at providing single-player satisfaction, however, and this is where Syndicate falters. While it isn't entirely successful, the campaign still dares to be different. And while "different" isn't the same as "great," Syndicate reminds you that with a bit of creative effort, shooters don't have to play by Modern Warfare rules to be truly modern.
IGN (Feb 21, 2012)
Syndicate hints at a fantastic puzzle meta-game, but relies on bullets flying to get through every level. Where the story walks a familiar road, the cooperative campaign’s tough-but-fun arcade action makes up for the missteps. Though uneven, Syndicate remains a good shooter full of incomplete great ideas. Grabbing three friends and battling for corporate supremacy online is well worth your time, but don’t expect to be wowed by playing alone.

On a du mal à croire que les créateurs de l'adaptation de Riddick et de The Darkness sont derrière Syndicate. Construit sur des clichés, du scénario aux mécaniques, le FPS de Starbreeze n'est pas repoussant et offre même un gameplay nerveux et dynamique couplé à une IA hyper agressive, mais diable que d'erreurs, de maladresses et de prévisibilité dans tout ça. Le résultat final est un shooter lambda, pas déplaisant mais qui ne restera certainement pas dans les mémoires.
