Syndicate (2012) – Video Game Review


Almost two decades later – on the palindrome date, February 21st,2012 – the reboot of Bullfrog Production’s original PC-game called Syndicate has been released for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC by Starbreeze Studios. This re-mounting of the classic game about capitalism gone awry differs mainly from the 1993 version in terms of genre, having been changed from a tactical shooter game into a First Person Shooter (FPS). The setting of the game is a megalopolis imagined in the year 2069, in a post-national world wherein a massive global syndicate pervades over the human race. The technologies of the worldwide corporatocracy, Eurocorps, have become ubiquitous to the point that each civilized individual has a chip implanted within their heads, whose intents and purposes resemble that of an iPhone. However, should a private citizen run into a special agent, their entire consciousness and motor abilities are vulnerable to be overthrown through the act of “breaching” or, essentially, hacking into another’s brain. Throughout the course of the game, a player assumes the point of view of a single character named Miles Kilo. He is a prototype government agent whose mind has been outfitted with the DART6-chip that endows him with dark powers of telekinetic persuasion and coercion. In keeping with its cyber-punk genre association, Syndicate’s plotline brings Kilo to discover that the corporation employing him is not to be trusted. He becomes a renegade, using the superior powers afforded him by the militarized version of Eurocorps’ chip in an effort to topple their maligned system.
