Those fingers blowing off when he shot the gas tank... man...

I'm curious how this is on PC. Liked what I played on PS3 (the demo), but I want it on PC if I buy it.

Clever!!

I will definitely be getting this game in the next few days. I just hope there is enough of a community for co-op in the PC version.

Posted by EthanielRain

Been loving the co-op in this, put 6 straight hours into it and would play more if I didn't have to work in the morning.

y u no make higher FoV on PC, Starbreeze

Posted by therealminime

This game looks really great. I was hoping it would be solid, and this looks like a ton of fun.

Posted by Soapy86

This is definitely a cool looking game, but I refuse to buy it on principle, which rarely happens. I have zero affinity or nostalgia for the old Syndicate games, but I simply cannot aid the perpetuation of this bullshit idea that everything needs to be a shooter.

This is what Perfect Dark would have been were it made today.

Posted by chaiHazuki

Looks fantastic

Posted by themangalist

Surprise 5-star. I know Starbreeze does good stuff, but everything leading up to the release of Syndicate makes me think it's a generic-ass video game. Now we shall see.

The multiple sight thing needs to happen in real life, ACOG and red dot ftw

Posted by prestonhedges

I don't know, the whole "hacking" thing just looks like not-so-quick time events.Like when you're hanging off that ship and have to hack those doors to get inside that building. Can you do something else instead? If not, why do you need to press a button to make it happen? Just seems kinda superfluous. Like mashing the X button to open a door.

Posted by murisan

@gladspooky: It's actually pretty great. For example, you run up to a downed teammate, start the hack, and then run back to cover while providing covering fire.

I wish the single player matched the co-op awesomeness.

Things I have learned about Brad today: He always tries to take the Backdoor route.

It does, there are scopes with picatinny rails mounted on the side or top so you can put a small red dot/reflex sight on them (some are also just built in). That is pretty awesome though, first time I've seen that in a video game and it looks really fun to use.

Posted by danimal_furry

This reminds me a bit of Perfect Dark.

Eh.

I think that's a pretty good comparison. PD did some pretty weird stuff with alt-fires on all of its weapons, and had all kinds of futuristic weapons that could lock on to targets or become autoturrets or identify explosives so you can avoid them.

Overall, this was a really entertaining Quick Look. The game looks slick as hell, and I think Jeff did a good job of showing it off, and he clearly knew what he was talking about front to back.

Posted by beard_of_zeus

The co-op stuff seems really awesome, and the single-player seems fun, albeit a bit short. Looks like you did a bang-up job, Starbreeze! Thanks for the review and QL, Jeff. I'll definitely be picking this game up (which is surprising, since it wasn't even on my radar before today).
 
And I'm with Brad, definitely a missed opportunity with a brain-traversing minigame. The first thing my mind went to was the endoscopy missions in Trauma Team, oddly enough...

This makes me wish I had friends who also owned it...

Posted by TeenageJesusSuperstar

The slow motion death sounds are really something special

Posted by thebigJ_A

So, a big part of this game is the co-op. But I'd be getting it on PC, which would require getting Origin (*shudder*). I don't know anyone on Origin, so I'd be stuck playing with randoms.

I suppose I could live with that, if the multiplayer on Origin is solid. Anyone have any experience with it?

I could just get the game on 360, but that would defeat the purpose of the new pc I just built.

Posted by n0nametaz

@danimal_furry: I can see that too.

Posted by SnowyPliskin

Not a fan of perks that completely obscure the great graphics of a game.

Why build an awesome world then encourage the player to make everything orange and grainy to proceed.

Having played the first 2 and a half hours, I can tell you that you can't abuse that nanovision and more often than not you will be seeing everything in the color palette that you are supposed to. But it is essential to combat, especially when you get weapons that penetrate cover.

Posted by Mirado

Nice Ghost in the Shell reference (assault rifle company is called Kusanagi), wonder if there are any more references to cyberpunk works hidden throughout.

Posted by Sporkbane

Really like the look of this game. Mad props to brad for the use of "kerning" in a quicklook.

Posted by RedRavN

Seems like a great game, but for $60 its a little light on content for me. Also, the origin requirment on PC is really unfortunate. Maybe I will pick it up when it goes on sale. Its too bad games on origin are always significantly more expensive then they are on steam.

Posted by Helimocopter

Well, looks like I'm getting this game then.

Posted by stryker1121

Too bad about the short campaign..that's the only reason i'd get this. I know Jeff loved it but I wouldn't mind more devs stop trying to be all things to all people, particularly in the FPS realm. In Syndicate there seems to be two modes that are light on content, instead of one complete kickass mode. From all I've read the co-op is more complete of the two, so why not just make a full-on co-op title out of this? Just don't bullshit me w/ these short shrift SP campaigns.

Eh, playing co-op doesn't really excite me. Looks like I'll be passing this one up, then. Oh well.

Posted by Ventilaator

Not seeing the 5 stars in this at all.

Seems like a well made first person shooter, but these days all that should get out of you is a groan.

Posted by Jayesslee

This might've swayed me to buy a copy now

Posted by Summoboomo

"Why did they waste the opportunity to have a skull navigating minigame?"

They people who made this game, as a group, said "Son of a-" as they realized they have made a terrible mistake.
