    Sonic Syndicate (Genesis)

    Bullfrog Productions, headed by the ever-prolific Peter Molyneux, crafted hit after PC hit in the '90s. Syndicate was quite a popular title during the company's run, which was ended a few years after it was gobbled up by Electronic Arts in 1995. Playing like the love child of The Matrix and Wall Street, the game tasks players with all sorts of nasty objectives, like assassinating rival corporations or brainwashing targets into obedience. Both the Sega CD and the Genesis received ports, and we've a full review of the latter version. Now put away your black trench coat and read it!

    I was disappointed to find out this game is not about Dr. Manhattan, as the boxart suggests.

    What about mouse support? Makes or breaks these games in my opinion. Great review otherwise!

    I played this game on my Mac, and I heard about the Genesis-edition. I thought the game didn't really exist because I never saw a copy anywhere nor did I see any decent footage of the game . Has it ever been released in Europe?

    The Review is at tad too lenghty and often meanders from the console port into describing the DOS-original without really comparing the two versions. Apart from that it was a nice read, and I agree with the score.

    Writing about games is something I enjoy doing but I admit to getting a bit 'lost', shall we say, when expressing ideas. Should've learned how to be more concise considering I currently write for a videogame mag and they constantly tell me to ramble less and talk more about the game :P

    Will try to be more focused on my next submission.

    Guess we can consider ourselves colleagues, then (I currently work for a computer magazine)
