I played syndicate wars on the original playstation, I really loved it. I finished it, no cheats.

It was a great strategy game.

What an incredibly hard game though. I think you actually have to use cheats to beat it.

I remember seeing the box for Syndicate on 3DO back in the early 90s too. My brother's friend had it and loved it then.
The original is light years better than Wars, and definitely worth tracking down if you haven't played it.

I actually liked Syndicate Wars slightly more than the first.

bloom is pretty atrocious, when you get close to really bright objects they put more bloom on the sides of your screen. FOV is not horrible but haven't played much, I killed a hobo in the alley - probably why it's banned here. Thank goodness for global digital distribution

After one or two hours of playing the New Syndicate, my opinion is as follows:
They have dumbed it down to levels that should be illegal. It has become an FPS on Rails. "Shoot at this --> open this door --> Do this --> Fight stupid Boss-Fight. --> Run about on top of a train shooting at people flying by on hoverbikes, and fight a gunship with your 30mm gatling gun, (that you can carry around)"... The train is however completely impervious to any weapons, (including bombs), the gunship carries.. so why not just climb down into it and close the hatch and wait for the gunship to go Bingo Fuel?

It is a Console FPS in Syndicate Clothing. Not a bad Console FPS, but, so far, it has none of the freedom that we so loved in the original Syndicate..

It's said that it's turned out like this. Another PC classic regurgitated into console trash.

Yeah, the fact no one is safe, wounded enemies, hobos, innocent bystanders is the main reason it was banned here.

I liked it. Finished it in an afternoon, but it was fun. I'm glad they didn't try to remake the original, rather make a different game, set in the same universe. If you loved the original, play it, if you want a FPS, play this.
