Awesome but unknown expansion of the original tactics game
For many IBM compatible wielders of the 484 era or the lucky 686 DOS rig wielders, there were only a few jaw dropping moments when it came to games that presented a really extraordinary game world. Syndicate was one of them, and even more so, once the American Revolt expansion was added to the mix. Syndicate is a tactics game which was definitely far ahead of its time when it was first deployed. It allowed the player to customize a small tactics team tasked with infiltrating and destroying threats in a future dystopian metropolis. The 22nd century had not been kind to humanity, and thus, the need for a highly prepared and ready to intervene taskforce was adamant. With American Revolt, the original game was expanded to include a larger South American set of maps. The Eurocorp giant is again being under attack by the citizen that had enough of the high taxes and the dangers lurking in the streets at all times. But you are on the side of the law, and will have to stop the increasingly dangerous citizen and their dangerous members from taking their revolt into a fully fledged revolution. In terms of mechanics, the same original features remain. You can control each of your squad members individually or in groups and the best tactics remain the ones that use stealth and careful planning. The game remains a joy to play to this day.
