At first glance, Syndicate looks a lot like Deus Ex: Human Revolution. As you play through the game however, it becomes evident that the similarity exists only in the representation of an oppressive, bleak future for humanity and of course, cheap boss fights. Syndicate is an all out first person shooter that’s as straightforward as can be. It makes you think that it’s a bit different from the crowd but falls prey to the many gameplay mechanics that have plagued previous shooters in the past. This results in an enjoyable game that’s bogged down by quite a few frustrating issues.
