    Do we still get to carjack people? Run away from fights? Hypnotise people?

    And what about forgetting one of the squad, losing them and leaving them invisibly tucked inside a building somewhere until we really need them...

    Or was that just me?

    Will any of the original Bullfrog / Lion head Studios devs be working on this?

    I can't help think that EA is trying to get some more monies from old IP.

    Syndicate as an FPS? My dubious levels are dangerously high.

    I don't want another FPS, I want syndicate!
    EA, if you want to regurgitate FPS games then do that, don't take a tried and tested formula that all Syndicate fans want and turn it into ANOTHER FPS clone.
    Golden Axe remake fail, now this :( my dreams are ruined and hate to see what the Dungeon Keeper remake whenever will turn out to be.
    Do the retards that make these decisions even get paid?
    Ok, look, it may turn out to be a awesome FPS but I will still be yearning for the original.

    as long as I can go around pursuading EVERYONE in the level I'll be happy! Had some great fun playing that game in ridiculous ways! inventory full of miniguns for example!

    "Cooper Team" and clicking both mouse buttons on the "select all team members" button made for some very fun moments of just having fun!

    Syndicate as a FPS, how much does that have to do with the current Deus-Ex release? :D

    Hmmm, the four-player-team is in line with the original, but the single player mode is what's really interesting as you'd still have to organise the team of four...maybe it's mixed? Planning phase in RTS style then into the action in FPS style?
    Ah well, we'll see.

    The story is by Richard Morgan which offers a small glimmer of hope and the screen shots indicate it will look reasonably nice.

    I still fear another part of my adolescence is about to horribly ruined.

    No way! I was recently thinking on how awesome it'd be for a new syndicate game to pop out with 3d graphics and the old syndicate style gameplay!... This officially SUCKS... Even if the game turns out to be AWESOME, it'll still not be a Syndicate game.

    Late night rememberings(?) of an awesome game

    Syndicate was that game that myself and 3 other game geeks (Rich the Tech, Abscess Paul and Type-R Mark) couldn't remember the name of at 2am in the morning in a hotel bar full of models (fitness show at the NEC and all the girls were in our hotel :D) so we we're rightly distracted.

    So we rang another friend up in the early hours of the morning, and he knew it straight away - after just being woken up at 2am:rock: we we're duely impressed....:clap: although his wife wasn't :nono:

    That's night will also be remembered for me blinding a colleague in the toilets with a martial arts move I didn't even know would work, don't ask :eeek:

    But all things aside - Syndicate was an awesome game and one due an update, just not sure if another shooter for the console generation is what's needed. As they say - we get what we deserve :sigh:

    I'll wait to see the gameplay in action.

    Syndicate was awesome in it's time, but isometric games have become extinct outside of J-RPGs. Fallout survived the transition to 3D pretty well, I'll reserve judgement for Syndicate.

    If it becomes a generic Deus ex clone, then we'll have an issue.

    For reference here's the gameplay, while awesome at the time it seems somewhat dated by today's standards

    A Syndicate game on the new UT engine with that gritty look would be ace.
