Gamesta Jerry: "Syndicate is remembered as an isometric strategy- ah who am I kidding? We all know that the upcoming Syndicate from Starbreeze Studios is the latest franchise to be brought kicking and screaming into the shooter genre this generation. It’s joining the ranks of the still-to-be-released XCom (X-Com? X-COM? Who knows?), Shadowrun, and other properties that fans of said properties are angry to see turned into “just another shooter.” As a fan of the original Syndicate and shooters, I was… conflicted… going into the recently released co-operative demo on Xbox Live. Succinctly put, once you get past the fact that it’s missing the same feeling, this can definitely still be described as a “tactical” shooter, and fans of the original who can stomach this change in perspective will find an engaging and deep game."
