Syndicate is a good game, with the potential to be a great game. The various abilities of the implant is is what makes this game so good. The third weapon aspect of the implant is the fun part.
The cliff hanger ending doesn't answer enough questions, and leaves you wanting more. The opportunity to upgrade your implant more often in the game would make an awesome improvement to the game play.
As the game stands now, the action is stilted somewhat by the constrictions of play and the limitations of the ending.. I finished this game in one night, found it too easy on some of the earlier levels and it only really starts to get hard on the later levels.
On the whole, I found this game to be fun, but some DLC and/or a sequel would push it over the edge into a great game.

If you didn't already know Syndicate is a reboot of the old successful strategy game, although the game is nothing like it's predecessor its an amazing and refreshing FPS
Syndicate is a futuristic FPS, In the campaign you are the agent Miles Kilo and you work for the Eurocorp syndicate. The story itself is not very great, but its better than most FPS poor story lines, and the game looks and plays amazing its a must play for all FPS fans out there!
In most shooters campaign is just a little add on, and multiplayer is were its at, Syndicate is no exception, but there is no Player VS Player modes, its all online co-op with up to 4 players, this is were the game truly shines.
In online co-op you will have enemies attacking from all directions and you always have to stay alert and work together with you're teammates to survive. Syndicate has 9 co-op maps and they are all great and alot of fun to play, the missions are challenging, but not too challenging, its like a perfect mix. In Syndicate you want to be aware of were you're enemies are at all times, but also were you're teammates are in case you need a reboot(heal) or other assistance.
Another unique thing with Syndicate is that you have this so called "dart 6 chip" which allows you to breach all sorts of things in you're environment. You can breach a turret so it shoots the enemy, you can breach an enemies grenade so he blows up, you can breach a grenade thrown at you preventing it from blowing up etc. There is tons of stuff to do! There is a good amount of weapons and powers you can add too you're ship such as squad heal which heals you're entire squad, shield which gives youre teammates a temporary shield against enemy fire and tons of more stuff.
- A refreshing FPS, just what the FPS genre needs!
- It looks beautiful
- Tons of stuff to unlock.
- Great game for teamwork
- Nonstop action
- Not a very good story.
- No player VS player(depends on how you see it).
