The FPS gameplay of Syndicate is complemented by an embedded security system that allows your character to hack objects in real time, quickly, without having to go into a mini-game. The security system allows you to do some cool things, but based on the video it makes it seem like it's much easier just to shoot people, unless you have to hack an object. A major concern is the ease of which you can hack into anything, in the gameplay demonstration the character seem's to be any to hack into people or objects fluidly, continuously and without restraint. The graphics are gorgeous and the whole hacking thing could be pretty interesting, but is all very similar looking to Deus Ex and besides hacking it doesn't seem to have any genuine qualities, at least not yet. This is the first footage, so it still has time to change and evolve, but based on my knowledge of EA i would say that it's mostly done already, especially since it has a release date of February 2012. Check out the video and let me know what you think. All it managed to do was to make me miss all of the fantastic games that Bullfrog created back in the 90's. Thanks for reading, be back with more sometime this morning.
