A firm fan favourite, the 1993 tactical strategy game Syndicate regularly features on lists of games that should be remade. It seems EA are finally about to grant fans their wish. Well, sort of. While it shares a setting with the original game, the new Syndicate is a first person shooter, sounding like a mix between Deus Ex and Left 4 Dead.
Personally, this makes me dubious as to its prospects. Publishers often fool themselves into thinking that their franchises are applicable to any kind of game but this is rarely true. More commonly the result is disappointing, both for the publishers and for the fans who just wanted to see their favourite game reborn.
