Syndicate Remake On The Way

Posted by on Oct 10, 2011

Syndicate, published by Bullfrog Productions in 1993, belongs to a very select group of video games.  Whereas many of the “impossible” games from my youth became quite manageable as I grew older and wiser, Syndicate did not.  I sought it out recently, hoping to settle our old score, and was promptly and brutally humbled.  That game is hard.

Now, EA is remaking it…maybe.  The original was an isometric, team based strategy game; this new one is an FPS.  Tomayto, tomahto.  To be fair, it still looks pretty cool.
