Syndicate is an actual time strategy game, which involves several tactics. The gameplay of the game demands to send a team of one to four robots in the town in order to accomplish the mission, which is given to them. The mission can be about assassinating the representatives of some enemy association, saving the captivated team members, forcing the common folks of the town to associate themselves with the team of the player or just murdering all the enemies. While continuing in the game, the player should keep the robots upgraded and should look after the investigation and production of new artillery. The player has limited sources of funds and needs to pay the taxes of the places, which are under his control. The places which pay more taxes might start a fight because of which, the player can suffer the loss of that place. Also, the player might need to play that mission once again. The player is the head of an association, Syndicate, which he has created himself. At the beginning of the game, the player uses simple guns, but, as he continues in the game, the weapons get more destructive. Along with the weapons, the player gets many medical kits using, which the player can heal, the people. In addition, the player gets scanners to find the people and the vehicles. Also, the player can use Persuaderton to divert and control the brain of the enemies. The motive of the game is to establish the authority of the syndicate association across the globe and to destroy the enemies and defeat the other rulers of the kingdoms. Overall, the game is fun to play. The graphics and sound add to the atmosphere of the game.



Review by unknown author

Syndicate series invented the "men in black coats" style, which was then borrowed by 'Matrix' and 'Harley Davidson and Marlboro' movies. The Syndicate series ain't bad themselves, but suffered from technical limitations of the pre-OpenGL era: you either could go hires 640x480 with 16 colors, or have 256 colors but lowres 320x200. First part picked first option and you had limited action in weird colors; second Syndicate went second option with some 3d assembly optimization instead - and you had lots of 3d action, but in such a low-res world, it was a painful mess to look at. From current age, these games are long graphically and technically outdated. Someone selling them deserves to be called scrooge of the century.

Love it!!!  Thanks for bringing this game back..  I've been looking for it for a long long long long time..

Take over rival companies control over regions of the world, then raise or lower taxes to fund research into weapons and cyborg upgrades.  Control a squad of up to 4 super cyborgs, and my favorite, use the persuadatron to convince street thugs to follow you and they will help you gun down any opposition.  This was an amazing game when it came out, and still is. Play it, Play it NOW!!

Review by Xiigen

This game is pretty good, and very in depth. It has too many options for me, but still a good game. 4/5

12/17/2011 10:38:00 AM - mistertropical Without a doubt, one of the top 10 classic PC games. Way ahead of its time along the lines of Wing Commander and Doom. Still holds up - its too bad the new release is a FPS. This game re-done in HD graphics would be an instant classic!
