NowGamer: Syndicate executive producer Jeff Gamon discusses the thought processes behind re-imagining a classic.
Wow, this basically sounds like they decided to make banal a sci-fi shooter, and write "Syndicate" on it to make it sell. Possible candidate for most disappointing game of 2012 already? I think so. Maybe if gamers make enough noise a studio will come up with a true remake, ala X-COM.
I'd say candidate for GOTY for me. It will at least be in the top 10 of 2012 list.
Pending the reviews this will become a definite import for me, as its banned here in Australia due to our coddling nanny-state.
I enjoyed the original Syndicate back in the day so I will keep an eye on how this one turns out and if it looks good on release I will likely get it! It would have been nice though if perhaps they had made the game in between what it was and what they have now made it; like perhaps made it third person but in the mould of the game "Freedom Fighters" from last Gen. I think that view would have suited the game perfectly and also the "Freedom Fighters" squad system would have fitted well with the 4 person squads from the original as well!
