These are questions you should ask before buying something. What does it matter now?

I'm sure it's totally fine.

It actually gives you rabies if you're not careful, so watch out for that.

@jjweatherman: I figured what the hell for $5, but then started to wonder. I'm sure you are right though.

I played it on 360 and thought it was fine. Nothing good or bad stood out. (graphics wise)

I'm a sucker for cyberpunk so I enjoyed the game.

Loved it. Singleplayer is mostly great. Multiplayer is a fantastic take on the four-player-vs-AI scenario fad.

The multiplayer is probably a bit underpopulated now, which is a shame.

Ugh, man.

Syndicate had really great potential, especially coming from Starbreeze. Unfortunately, it turned out to be pretty ordinary and monotone. Especially the campaign.

I actually really liked the campaign, although it's woefully brief (like five hours). There's definitely some pacing issues (I think an hour or two of content got cut out near the end), but yeah, it's worth five bucks! Enjoy!

Why don't you just play it and find out?

The campaign is a bit hit or miss, but the game was pretty fun to play. Multiplayer was pretty rad too.

It's perfectly fine.

I actually prefer the game using a controller, just because you have to hold down buttons from time to time. Just felt easier to do with a controller

"Syndicate looks and sounds great, for the most part. You'll find a crummy texture here and there on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but it makes up for that with some terrific lighting and a good sense of style." - Jeff Gerstmann, 2012

Didn't have any problems with it back in the day. Jeff was right. ;)

Console version looks and runs fine. I just didn't care for the gameplay very much
