This game rocks! It builds upon the original by adding extra features, such as playing as the syndiacte or the zealots, robbing banks for funds, roaming hoards of "de-chipped" people protesting and causing havoc, destroyable buildings plus a load of other rockin' things. And the weapons! Satalite rain is so effing cool! There is nothing like laying waste to an entire city with giant honking laser beams from space. The feel of the game is different to the original, and although the graphics where impressive in its day, they do look a bit shabby by todays standards. Overall though, I really think this is a worthy sequel to a classic game.

:bleh: :w00t:

If there's one major difference between the PC and PSX version, it's the control. This game is FAR better with a mouse and keyboard than it is with a controller of any sort, no matter how comfortable.

And disappointment? It's free. If you're disappointed, just delete it.

it was a very good game at the time no doubt about it - the sequels where ok. That said the PSX version was if it had have had better controls would have been better than the PC version but alas in trems of controls the PC version comes up trumps

I'm never disapointed with free stuff!

I don't want to get off topic too much but I always prefer controls on a PC. It's all about mouse 'n' keyboard for FPS, TPS, RTS, PAC, etc. The only time I prefer a 'jpypad' is for racing games or platformers or emulators I guess but i've got a Gravis Exterminator which I prefer to any console controller going. Ok rant over, I guess its just cause I suck at halo on the xbox.

A new syndicate game would be awesome at the moment, I think they could really pull off what they were aiming for in syndicate wars. Or maybe they should just wait for the next generation of consoles and pc platforms. PS3 is gonna be running at 2 Terraflops!!!!!!!

Ok I'll shut up now

a Syndicate 3 would be amazing in this day and age.

Can you imagine how dark and creepy you could make the plot, the grpahics, the sounds, the effects.

if they ever make a syndicate 3 they better make it fooking awesome.

ooOOOoo..

it's like heaps of old school games. you just think, 'damn wouldn't this be cool if all the graphics and sound were cool'

the problem with that, is that for some reason good graphics and playability have lead to a lot of games with less gameplay, storyline and depth. not so much a problm with PC gaming as much as console gaming, but it's still somewhat of an issue.

with a game like syndicate, it could totally be pulled off. mainly because of the storyline. hopefully it doesn't become too much like your 'ratchet + clank' type game, with tons of overpowered weapons and silly comp enemies. that said, i still love ratchet + clack. anyway. syndicate needs to be evil, really evil.
