Syndicate - The Atari Times


Is this a futuristic Berzerk?
by Gregory D. George

June 5, 2001
I hate this game. Just about everywhere I go, I read about how great it is. But what the heck are you supposed to do? Equip your characters? Choose your missions? Shoot the bad guys? What really would have helped this game is an introductory mission where the computer shows you how to play, step by step. This game is just too complex for a video game. It should have stayed on the PC.

What kills it? Complexity.

Hated it.
I guess this is the "fun" part of Syndicate. I could never get though the menu stuff to enjoy it.

I bought this cart cheap off eBay as part of a bundle. I sat down with the manual and tried for two or three hours to figure out how to play it, without much success or progress. It stinks.
