Do not rent this title if you are looking to relive the old syndicate days. This is a first person shooter and a poor one at that. The controls are sluggish and was not even worth the time that I spent playing it. One hour and it was back in the envelope and ready to be returned.
Corporations taking control of the world/governments isn't new to video game platforms but could have been executed better by EA.
My biggest complaint is how the applications become introduced to your character. Once you "obtain" a application you get ported into a VR training zone (Metal Gear could show this game pointers with VR missions/training). This totally takes a side step from the horribly written story/plot. When ported back to the main game I find my self wondering what last I was doing.
