In 1993, I wasn't born yet, so all comparison to the classic RTS is henceforth null and void in this review. At the point of Syndicate's release, it was still very early in the year, and the upcoming Mass Effect 3 was sending all other announcements over my head, and the sound of a dubstep trailer no longer surprised me. To be honest, I'm not exactly sure what attracted me to Syndicate. The co-op demo kinda whizzed by me and my good friends pestered me about not playing, so I guess I owe this purchase to peer pressure. Not a good start.
