10 Most Anticipated PC Games of 2012 - #6 Syndicate

6. Syndicate

Why it might be good:
  • If they could tap into the mood and background story of the original, they may be onto something.
  • Return of the persuadertron, in a sense.
  • Nice to hear them using the original (albeit remixed) Syndicate music in the launch trailer. Hopefully there'll be more tributes to the original in the game.
  • 4-player co-op is apparently going to emulate the original 4-cyborg squad experience.
Why it might be bad:
  • The original was a tactical squad-based strategy game while this is an FPS. That means it could be dumbed down.
  • Will the breaching mechanism add value to the game or just be a cumbersome annoyance?
  • Might be too soon after the return of another well-known cyberpunk series, Deus Ex.
