Syndicate means business. Regardless of your opinion on whether this cherished 90s series should have been reborn as an FPS in 2012, its world of all-consuming corporations and always-connected citizens feels more relevant than ever. We live in a constantly-online world, pledging allegiance to the superbrands of mammoth companies with soothing thumbs-up buttons and forced hashtags, all while our politicians roll over to accommodate these corporate giants. Companies like Apple and Microsoft prop up economies and post profits that seem more like GDP's, and in our current world Syndicate's vision of corporations replacing governments in the future seems eerily plausible. That's the context Swedish developer Starbreeze has inherited, but one it fails to engage with outside of a few half-hearted sentiments on the value and meaning of its tech-obsessed society. This is a world that demands deeper exploration than a few misty-eyed monologues and some collectible propaganda posters littered around the environment you can scan, but that's sadly all you're going to get.
Back in 1993, Peter Molyneux’s Bullfrog Productions released a now-classic PC strategy title in which players commanded a squad of four agents working for a super-corporation on a multitude of missions to dominate the world. Now Electronic Arts has resurrected the franchise after many years, transforming it from an isometric strategy game to a first-person shooter. If you’re a hardcore superfan of the original who has an issue with this decision, nothing anyone says is going to change your mind. But if you’re open to an FPS reinterpretation with loads of references to the old games, or if you’ve never heard of Syndicate and like sci-fi shooters, this may be the game for you. Rather than put you in the role of a commander like the original games, Chronicles of Riddick and The Darkness developer Starbreeze puts players in control of Miles Kilo, a Eurocorp agent enlisted in the company’s experimental new DART 6 chip program that gives him the ability to subvert the chips in other people’s heads and hack the environment around him. The story follows a predictable arc, with oppressive corporations simultaneously empowering and controlling much of the populace with implanted chips while an underground resistance fights back in the year 2069.
