Playing this again. I'd forgotten how good it was. Playing PS3 version this time. Shocked Beagle, she thought it was a mindless FPS GTA clone from the mobsters until The Darkness impaled one then ate his heart. ::

Bump. Just played this yesterday at night. IT IS ONE HELL OF AN INCREDIBLE GAME!

I always wanted to play this since it came out becouse I know that Starbreeze is making unique and good games. But I couldn't find it in stores when I had my previevous 360. Now my buddy happen to have it, so I grabbed it and (after a couple of tries with his old disc) got it installed.


MY GOD!!! The graphics, shooting mechanics(pushing a trigger on 360controller reflect identic move of player FINGER ON THE SCREEN!!!) and best part - atmosphere. I played it on headphones without light on late evening. I only got to the scene of escaping from restaurant but I had to collect my jaw from the floor. Voice acting, sound design, characters, dirty atmospheric subway station and meeting a girl ... I will wait till everyone in home go to sleep and play it some more

I recommend this very underrated game for people who didn't played it and like dark mood games! Glad I discovered this.

And no NarcissistZero, Kaguya, nekrosoft13 I am not justifing my chooice over ps3. I am just excited about the actuall game. The 360 is nothing new to me as You know. Just hope that Jasper Elite in well ventilated areas with games running from hdd ,wont die faster that falcon I had(which wasnt modded as You appear to think(yet)) In fact I might flash this one sometime ...

Anyway. Search for this game. Its fantastic.

Actually, this thread is a million years old.

I laughed when I saw this thread... I enjoyed the game a lot, but one of the best shooter experiences ever? Not by a long shot. I do hope they make a sequel and actually do things better.

Electronic Arts May Have Just Killed The New Syndicate (Or Its Bourne Game)

Starbreeze Studios, developers of The Darkness and Chronicles of Riddick, were working on two projects for EA. Now it's working on one, a potentially bad sign for Syndicate—or Jason Bourne—fans hoping that "Project RedLime" would reinvent the franchise.

EA and Starbreeze had partnered to work on two games, one based on Robert Ludlum's Jason Bourne character, another dubbed "Project RedLime," officially described as a reinvention of "one of EA's most acclaimed classic franchises." That classic franchise was reported to be Syndicate, the Bullfrog-developed line of PC games released in the '90s.

Starbreeze announced in a press release this week that it was now focused on just one of those projects, with the other "still in pre-production phase" to be shut down. The developer did not specify which of the two had been put on hold.

"We will continue to focus only on a big production together with EA," says Starbreeze CEO Johan Kristiansson, in a press release originally in Swedish. "Our relationship with EA is stronger than ever, and the aim now is to spend more resources on the game that demonstrated the greatest potential. This game is already in full production."

Starbreeze is reported to have been hard at work on its Syndicate revival since 2007, with its planned Bourne-starring game officially announced late last year.

Which game has greater "potential"? Another Bourne game—possibly known as The Bourne Ascendancy—or an update to Syndicate? Commercially, it would seem like the former, but we've reached out to EA and Starbreeze to clarify.

I hope new Bourne game got dropped.
