The new Syndicate game thought to be in development at Starbreeze will reinvent Bullfrog's top-down classic as a first person shooter, so say insider sources.
*SIGH* Plese don't mess this up.
... but we'll wait and see how this will turn out. Remember all the people who were upset years ago about a certain top-down game-series going third-person 3D?!? It's name? Grand Theft Auto!
GTA didn't got FPS though FPS has some cool things about it but it pretty much eliminates certain things and makes others harder.
... I probably should have used Fallout 3 as an example... ;)
No problem that is a good example. i love fallout 1-2 and then 3 and NV so good one and you got me.
seriously please don't ruin a great memories like all the Xcom's did after terror from the deep.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOO I f***ing knew they'd pull the same crap they did with XCOM :_(
It blows my mind that they do this. X-com was a tactical strategy game so was Syndicate. Why change it to a FPS? Hell just make a FPS and call it something else...............
If they can pull off a Fallout, i'll be a very happy man. The original game was pure awesomeness.
I trust Starbreeze. They have proven themselves in the past. I'm sure they'll be able to pull off something awesome even with all the trouble they have been having lately. Plus when Retro Studios took Metroid FPS everyone was upset too. So not ALL FPS conversions are bad.
this would work sooooo much better as a squad based Third Person Shooter.. Im sick of FPS games tbh.
If its less about the S in FPS, like Chronicles of Riddick and The Darkness, then I'll be happy.
