Syndicate hands-on video with Executive Producer commentary

Syndicate is a rethinking of an old (1993) strategy game, updated to a four-player focused co-op first-person shooter in a way similar to Left 4 Dead. Instead of fighting zombies, however, you fight against rival corporations in a future where everyone has a chip implanted in their brains. If ever there was an argument against brain chips, Syndicate is it: with access to your own military-grade chip, you can hack the brains of chumps and make them commit suicide, amongst other horrible fates inherent to having a computer inside your body.

We went down to Electronic Arts' Redwood Shores office to play a bit more of Syndicate, with the added bonus of having Executive Producer Jeff Gamon give real-time commentary while we kicked the future's ass. Take a look:

We'll be posting more videos of our play session soon, with our own commentary so you can get the gamer's perspective along with the developer's.

    Looks good, reminds me a bit of L4D and BF mixed together. L4D because the 4 player co-op and BF because of the stuff that I see popping up on the screen like the healing, kill assist etc. Nice little leaderboard thing. Looks more like the multiplayer game I would play. I hate playing against other humans (because I'm rubbish), but working with other humans is more my kind of game.

    I will definately get this game, but more likely not on release day, my game bdget will be spread way too thin with Mass Effect 3 (More likely a special Edition, Kingdom of Amalur), I'll have to see how I can fit this in.

    In FPS games, does having to think when you reload make it less fun? Very few games reload in magazines.
