This sequel to Syndicate expands the original game's world and offers a variety of new features and strategies. Multiplayer action, up to eight players, is supported over LAN. In Syndicate Wars, you can play as either side of the conflict: the EuroCorp Syndicate or the Church of the New Epoch.
If you choose EuroCorp, you become head of Agent Team MU with many resources at your command such as eight cybernetically enhanced agents, four Uzi sub-machine guns, 50,000 EuroCorp credits, one LIMBO-class cryogenics facility, one HELICON-level research facility and one Croesus-class executive airship. And should you fail in your mission, you'll be expected to auto euthanize yourself immediately!
Syndicate Wars comes with new weapons such as Nuclear Grenades, Psycho Gas and Razor Wire as well as time travel utilizing futuristic modes like monorail, tubes and anti-gravity machines. The interface supports keyboard, joystick and mouse controls as well as adjustable options such as music selections, visual depth and perspectives and four-player multi-play (same machine) through a multi-joystick configuration. ~ Michael L.
