Hey so gamefly is having a sale on Syndicate for PC. I'm gonna pick it up. It does use origin. Do we have A PC giantbomb Syndicate? Btw the link is http://www.gamefly.com/Download-Syndicate/5000401/
I had bought it at $6.50 awhile ago. 45 minutes after playing, I regretted even a $1 spent on it. Terrible awful lighting effects (maybe they confused the flash bang effect with normal lighting source), map design, encounter design, shooting feel, and story.
Though it is difficult to make co-op horde mode type gameplay completely flat, so maybe that is decent.
Not the worst game in the world, but it definitely caught at a bad time when a ton of 4 player co-op games were coming out and Resident Evil O:RC was one of them, got all the hype and turned out to be a terribad game which burnt alot of folks. That and all the old-school Syndicate fans had a DMC sized hissy-fit that it was an FPS. If you're looking for co-op and doing the same missions over and over again, you'll get some enjoyment, but the story is pretty much nonsense and it's really short.
