Do you see the visceral FPS experience? No? THAT'S BECAUSE IT'S NOT A FUCKING FPS!

If they don't respect what Syndicate is, I don't respect their game.

I can easily see both this and X-com working fine with similar style of gameplay as Deus Ex:HR, Alpha Protocol or Mass Effect.

Of course everyone knew that it´s an FPS, but a thread about the game is a thread about opinions about the game, and people still don´t want it to be an FPS.

I haven´t got over it because I did like the orginal but I don´t like FPS games. If I accept the game for what it is, it´s still a game in a genre where I have liked 3-4 games the last 10 years.

God, precisely this year, when we have seen how awesome can be when a modern developer respect an old game for what its is and build it from there... We have these FUCKING CLUELESS suits and their big companies trying to "defend" their fucking IPs without giving a shit about the games that made them valuable and memorable.

Fuck them!

If this ends up being a good mix of FPS and RPG elements set in an interesting universe, I'll be interested. :)

Really... What the fuck did they think. Noone that cared about the syndicate name would think those screenshots looked anything at all like syndicate. The name will only be detrimental for the game so why the hell did they decide to choose a franchise that has a niche following and just ignore the little fanbase that they would gain by keeping the name. It just doesn't make any sense at all... The only peopne that cared about the name will rage about this which begs the question why they used the name... I mean, the only reason to use an existing franchise would be to capture those who remember it fondly but this... it doesn't seem anything like syndicate...

Ah, yes, found it:

http://www.siliconera.com/2011/05/25...yberpunk-game/

Father – M, 30-45, opinionated resistance leader.

INT. AN UPTOWN APARTMENT – EVENING …and your FATHER, looking playful.

FATHER

Hey, little man — whatcha doin’? Hiding?



He laughs, holds you up, and looks at you lovingly.



ECNNOLD NEWSANCHOR

…will be determined by your credit rating, making it a truly exclusive Uptown product.



Your father snorts in disgust — cracking the playful mood somewhat.



FATHER

See that? You are what you earn.



MOTHER

Ugh. Don’t start again.



MOTHER

Did you hear that?



FATHER

Hear what?



Doorbell chimes. You father hands you to your mother who puts her book down.



FATHER

I’ll get it.



FATHER

(out of view) Jesus, calm down. I — You hear your father opening the door. An ominous thump, the sound of shoving and struggling.



FATHER

(in pain, furious and defiant) Who the hell are you — MUFFLED AUTO-GUN FIRE cuts him short. A few stray bullets shoot into the living room and destroy the TV. You hear your father scream. Your father’s ghost voice.



FATHER

…what the hell they take me for, tryin’ to buy my son…damn corporate agents…



Mother, F, 30-40 -strong, intelligent but fears for the life of her child.

INT. AN UPTOWN APARTMENT – EVENING

MOTHER

…they’re watching us, from the black van outside…



MOTHER

…he’s watching us again, the man in the black coat…



MOTHER

…the man with the binoculars, he’s looking at us from the other side
of the street…



Your mother holds you on her knees and looks into your eyes, smiling.



MOTHER

Miles, honey. Bet your real sleepy, huh?



She gives you a kiss.



MOTHER

Tomorrow, you and I will go to the –



Noises from the vestibule. You hear your father OPENING the door. An ominous thump, the sound of shoving and struggling. You see your mother’s face flinch in horror.



MOTHER

(to herself) Oh, God. They’re coming.

She leaps up, holding you tight in her arms. Runs towards the BEDROOM DOOR. Your mother kneels beside the bed and places you beneath it. She’s weeping as she lies to you:



MOTHER

Shh. It’s alright. Mommy’s here. Don’t be afraid. It’s all right. Just be quiet.



GUN FIRE pierce through the door and rips through her chest and stomach. She COLLAPSES on the floor in a heap in front of you. She moans and moves a little.

I can't wait to feel immersed in this visceral shooter with class world story!

To be blunt (and say what everyone is thinking) since I never played the original I don't care how faithful it is. It's a new company and new vision. And from the tiny screenshots it looks quite interesting. My ultimate impression of it will be based on what currently sits in the market. If it's just another shooter I won't care. If it's a new Riddick, Deus Ex, or even Half-Life I'm interested.

I just hope after all the moves Starbreeze sticks to what seems to be their philosophy of making great shooters that blend adventure and RPG game elements.

EDIT: That being said I totally sympathize with the point of view of people who grew up with the game. For me it would be like if the next Metal Gear removed all the story elements and crazy gameplay options in favor of a straight forward first person shooter. Others might totally love it. Hell it might be universally praised, but for me it wouldn't be why I love Metal Gear. I would hope I could get over that, but as evident by Metal Gear Acid and Portable Ops I couldn't.

"What everyone is thinking" is in the context of my entire paragraph which is about people who have never played the original. Obviously people who love the original aren't thinking that. Why would the people who never played Syndicate ultimately care that the game was different? They care if the game is good.

You should try the Darkness if you haven't. If was very much like the recent Deus Ex game where you had open hub areas with npcs along with individual levels.

You know, Xcom at least tried to show it had common links with the true Xcom.

This one doesn't even try for the bullet points I'm seeing, the closer thing is:

4-Player Online Co-op: Assemble your Syndicate for global domination. A 4-player, online co-op experience like no other, with chip enhanced gameplay and 9 missions re-imagined from the original Syndicate.

hahaha, wtf

From the rest: visceral FPS, bullet time, unique action shooter, brutal action adventure of corruption and revenge...

Really fucking in-cre-di-ble. It´s like the press release was specifically designed to enrage Syndicate fans .

Consider me interested. I liked Syndicate back in the days (haven't played Syndicate Wars though) and I'm happy to see the franchise coming back. FPS is OK for Syndicate due to its heavy action component. I hope character customization is still here.

Now, what about Wing commander EA? And Strike Commander? And a Lands of Lore reboot (no Bioware please)?
