A preview that isn't even a page long - alarm bells ringing ? I should think so, judging by some of the quotes from Andrew "I Am Always Right" Kelly
Here are some choice quotes from him to encourage you to splash £40
"Your bio-engineered agent has powers that make it seem as if there's some tactical depth to the combat, but there really isn't"
"but it's all a gimmick; a clever, and effective, distraction from the fact that it's a really basic shooter at heart."
"There moments that feel cinematic and empowering, like a tense chase through a grimy tenement block full of shrieking civillians, but also moments where there are glaring cracks in the level design."
"An early boss battle sees waves of identical enemies spawning through sealed-off doorways"
"fight with a rival agent who can implausibly soak up hundreds of bullets"
"Despite its futuristic setting, it feels oddly old school"
"The parity between the modern visuals and interface, and the archaic game mechanics, can be distracting, and a is little disappointing"
"Syndicate is not as smart as Deus Ex, despite obvious similarities"
"The combat is good, but doesn't try anything different or especially brave"
"sometimes that's enough"
Doesn't really encourage me.....seems that even CVG now know its a pile of steaming you know what (after hundreds of articles on it)
Please, by all means spend your £40 - I will spend it on a good night out, rather than several bad nights in

Its amazing how dumb people have become from playing certain FPS games, everyone was just rushing in firing away, absolutely no tactics whatsoever, the idea and gameplay itself were fine but as i said in another post on this game this is a title to play with friends only because you absolutely need to be able to talk to each other and formulate plans, especially for when the hard bosses etc come out to play, when i played it for the first few times i was the last one standing all the damn time because everyone else just treated it like COD
It wont sell though, it has zero chance, already people are hating it because of retarded things like.... It's name.... Really guys???? and the fact that its not Deus Ex, why on earth would it want to be???? its fundemental game design is different.
Im looking forward to the full game and its definately getting purchased at some point.
