Lets' have a Syndicate thread.

I still call my hammer "the persuadeatron"

I actually played the SNES version on a whim last week and it's actually pretty good for what it is. It doesn't compare, but it's not as watered down as I thought it'd be, and they translated the controls well.

That being said, you can't pick your org name or logo, so you can't call your gang fartknockers.

Gonna keep it a buck fitty with ya nigga, this shit ass motherfuckin game is unwieldy as fuck

Read the manual and keep your squad together. There's not a lot of reason to split up a lot of the time, so your unit just moves together

This is the group button, Anon. It makes your life WAAAAAAY Easier. Also what >>7997120 Said. There's a lot of shit in the manual that you'll need to know and the game assumes you've read it.

You can also just use one agent with a persuedatron and roll everything like a cyborg charlie manson

ran out of ammo for the entire team with one enemy agent left. It was tense as hell.

Syndicate is awesome. Syndicate Wars on PS1 is awesome, too

Is this one of the few games to ever use the high-res VGA mode?

>> No.8002006

Battle Bugs was another one. Also obviously a bunch of windows 3.1 games

>> No.8002187

whats the easiest way to run this game? gog?

>> No.8002219

That's what I do. Syndicate Plus. Seems fine, conquered half the map so far. Although I think it got taken down from their store recently. Could be a problem but probably not.

As much as I love this game, the unit path finding is painfully retarded.
I would mindlessly throw money at a remake that fixed those issues.

>> No.8004350

Holy shit I knooooooooow.
Also, I feel like even with upgraded cyberlegs your guys move too slow, although that might be because I insist on lugging two miniguns around.

>> No.8004445

I really liked Syndicate Wars, but damn if those last 5 stages aren't hard as fuck.

>> No.8004497

I remember the intro was so cool. It was like a violent sandbox. I wished the interiors could be displayed since I had no idea what was going on inside the buildings.

>> No.8004502

Is that your collection? Neat. It's too bad we only got the shitty parts of cyberpunk and none of the cool stuff.

>> No.8004540

Damn, that's soulful. Love the crisp dithering.

I hate the last one that is against the clock. Just when you are making progress kaboom.

>> No.8006731

Yeah, it is a theme I like in games. Works well and is a very interesting setting.

>> No.8006759

There's one stage where the punks get those blue lasers (the strongest weapon) before you do, and one shot levels half the city.
I'm not joking, Syndicate Wars had a system where you could destroy buildings with explosives, but they didn't take into account that end-game weapons would be 15x stronger than explosives. So if an enemy shoots a building, you'll have to wait a good 10 seconds while the whole block is leveled.
