Oooooh man, what a great game this was. It had a perfect balance of strategy and carnage. And boy howdy, how bout that collateral damage? I loved a mission where you had to assassinate some guy riding in a convoy; so you just stood a mile away with your gauss cannon and wiped out half the neighbourhood. Boootiful.

I'm not sure if it was a sequel or a port to the PLaystation, but a few years back (like 10) I was playing Syndicate Wars on my good old PS1. I remember it mostly because I was 11 years old playing a game with Ghost in the Shell advertisements. There were boobies.

It was both. Syndicate Wars was the sequel, which was then ported to the PS1.

I remember the first Syndicate game being really really hard. Or at least having a pretty sharp learning curve. It was fun once you got the hang of it though. Some of the flaws in this game were fixed in the sequel, Syndicate Wars. I liked that one even more then the first.

When we were playing this game many years ago, one of my buddies started ad libing words to the background music. I remember that song to this day

Guys in Coats
Guys with hats
Guys with Guns and Baseball bats.

Makes me smile everytime I sing it, I don't know why.

I find this review fascinating. It certainly helped me comprehend the great essence of this game. Say... Is there a way to get this game in these days?

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!! I'll talk to people who say they remember all the good old computer games and I'll mention this game and they look at me like I have a dikfor on my head. I'm so happy that someone loves this game as much as I do. I still remember on the harder levels later on how angry I would get trying to get my top of the line agents away from the clans of bad guys and I would accidentaly hit one of the elevated train tracks. That did suck.

Fuck, I hate EA.Wouldn't release Thrill Kill, wants to take over every single video game company. Now I find out that closed down a good video game company. They have probably closed down more, I just don't feel like doing the research.

This sounds like a really good version of this game called Crime Fighter 2.

I don't know what you're talking about, but this is more a game about committing crimes, rather than fighting them.

I loved playing this game! A little hint: if you want to start the game with all your research done, top of the line cyborgs, and a butt-load of money, I believe you had to call your company "cooper team". Not sure if that works for the PS1 version though.

No Syndicate, no GTA.

Cheers for reviewing this, brought back some good memories. Me and my best mate still go through periods where we mash our way through Syndicate Wars, only to spend ages and ages doing the last few levels. Horrifying.

Apparently someone has bought the name, not sure though. I do know Peter Molyneux has expressed interest in there being a sequel.

I don't know if I'd prefer it in its lovely top down go there shoot that form or in an engine like the GTA4 one... It'd make the flying cars and explosions a lot more interesting though!

I loved this game, though I wasn't very good. I remember once inputing a code that jumped you to the last mission and being killed in two seconds. Its like Mike Tyson Punch Out all over again.
