Deus Ex did it better with the same theme. Boring story. OK graphics. Controls seem floaty and imprecise. The character is pretty uncoordinated for being a super-hyped, elite agent. You can only sprint for like 10 steps before you cannot slide any more. To me this guy should be able to do double back flips off of the wall, slow time and rip head shots mid air. For all the hardware in his head, all they could come up with is three applications? Why no melee system? The cover system is useless as the enemies flank you almost immediately so you have to run and gun and hack and run and slide and hack.
The only good thing about the game is the premise and theme. The implementation is rather poor. I could have done a better job designing this game.
It's sad that I also have to give syndicate my FAIL rating. It seemed like an interesting and action-packed game. I wanted to explore further, but the FLOATY controls made it almost impossible to aim properly and hit anything. I bailed after the first level, what a shame. I literally couldn't wrestle to the controls to hit the bad guy standing 4 feet in front of me. Played for 20 minutes then, pop out the disc, back in the envelope, back to gamefly. Fail.
