‘Syndicate’ Renews My Faith in FPS Games

The FPS genre and I don’t get along well. I love games like Doom, Time Splitters, F.E.A.R., and even Halo, but the FPS scene has become an oversaturated, Madden-esque brofest as of late.

Enter Syndicate, a reboot of an old RTS franchise from the 90’s, this new entry is being helmed by Starbreeze – the same dudes who did the Riddick games and The Darkness.

While it’s easy to be skeptical, this is definitely one title to keep on your radar.

Syndicate drops February 21, 2012.
