    Music is great, the game looks like a mix of Deus Ex and Splinter Cell Conviction. Not bad, the name Syndicate is probably not justified anyway.

    Trailer is stylish, but that does not say anything at all. It’s cool that it’s just a shooter but it’s not a Syndicate.
    Just because someone wants to please Console fanbase adding another shooter won’t make it really great. Beyond stylish trailer must be substance.

    “this is how Deus Ex was meant to be, not the RPG/Stealth sh*!”

    Casual fratboy. Sorry, RPG and stealth sh*t is how Deus Ex is meant to be played and always will be played like that.

    Looks decent,but seriously…too much dub-step in trailers recently,not against it but it doesn’t fit everywhere.

    I like. I’m interested. The only thing that worries me is the close release, but the thing that stems that fear is that they’ve worked on this for ages.

    But yeah, in like Kevin Flynn.

    @8 You do realize you are on the other side of that “fratboy” coin, right? And are infact just as bad with your constant and utterly nonsensical trolling of anything “console” related.

    @12: No he does not realize that. That’s the beauty of it

    BTW: Video looks good, still think that there is no need to name this game Syndicate, but still, definitley on my radar now.

    Agreed on the whole thing that they should probably drop the name ‘Syndicate’, but people should really be concerning themselves more with what this game *is* rather than what it isn’t.

    Wonders why this can’t be a Vita/PS3 crossplay game with squad control on the Vita and FPS over a network of PS3s…

    @15: At last, someone with a little bit of brains. Reading the youtube commetary section right now, this is ridiculous, all those people whining that EA destroyed “their” franchise …

    Good call.


    Yeah, it’s purile bollocks mostly. Especially most of them when pressed, haven’t actually played the original(s) before.

    Hot damn, that looked well decent.


    Yer, I wonder how many people of those complaining actually played the originals.

    @12, “You do realize you are on the other side of that “fratboy” coin, right? ”

    I’m not. I’m not looking forward to the “shooterizing” on every old franchise there is. Syndicate was a great squad-based strategy game in the past and i could me more happy if it was a pure strategy game. Now it’s turned like (XCOM) to childish console shooter which in the end will be nothing special.

    The trailer looks cool and the action looks fast paced, as expected of Starbreeze.
    If they just dropped the name it would be a game with its own identity and be even cooler.

    @20 Yeah, you are. Being on the oposite side of the coin means being the complete oposite of something, but at the same equally as a bad.
    You try to present yourself as some sort of intelectual while making the dumbest, trolliest comments on consoles.

    What platform something is on, doesn’t mean anything towards it’s complexity.
    Simplistic CoD has been a PC game from day 1, and more complext games like Deus Ex: HR or the original Syndicate came out on consoles aswell.
    As is Battlefield 3, a day one console game, no changes to the gameplay.

    Wether a game is complex or simpel is a choice made the developer as a reaction to the percieved audiance, no matter the platform.
    And simplel or complex also means nothing towards the quality. Sometimes you want something simpel, sometimes you might want something more cereberal.

    Or in short: stop being such an anoying dumbass.

    Looks really interesting. Can’t really say too much because this is only one trailer and I never played the original Syndicate (so I’m not complaining like the lots of the internets). Though the gameplay looks rather fluid, and asthetically, it looks nice. Can’t wait to hear more about this within the coming months.

    Let’s play a game!

    Who do you think has put more time into Blops?
    The average fratboy, or Erth?

    They used samples from the original Syndicate soundtrack, how cool is that? Ah man I feel like going back and playing it again.

    Get your fucking dub-step out of my Syndicate, bitch!

    This looks like it could be a decent game. Some interesting gameplay mechanics at play in that trailer. It’s still not Syndicate though. I see almost nothing in this that reminds me of the original franchise.

    Looking nice. It’s on my radar now. Just hope that you CAN stealth your way through some parts, ya know, if ya like that sort thing.
