Ugh, digging up a classic IP just to make another FPS? I haven't heard anything about this one but Amazon lists it as coming out on 2/21.

I believe it was previewed in the "Official Xbox Magazine". Yes, it is indeed an FPS remake of an older intellectual property, although I don't think it really has much in common with the original titles. Considering the age of the series, it's not surprising that they'd go a completely different direction, but yeah, it's really just recycling an old name.

I am a fan of the setting, and I really enjoyed Syndicate Wars (did anyone else in the world actually buy that game, or was it just me? ). I think I will have to give this game a closer look.
After all, I had misgivings about Fallout 3 (First-person, different developer, etc), having been a huge fan of the original 2 games... but I liked the FO "universe" so much, I gave it a try and it ended up being among my favorite games. Maybe this will turn out the same way.
Oh, and is it just me, or does that character's voice in the teaser vid sound an awful lot like Michael Wincott?

I went through a big Syndicate phase on PC in the early 90s. It was pretty awesome for its time. I like this FPS remake. They transitioned the objective based gameplay to FPS pretty good IMO. I like the chip and weapon upgrading too.

Shadowrun is awesome btw, I played a few games earlier today. 5 years old now and there's still always some people online playing that one. Oh. Yeah.
