the original syndicate, a masterpiece from
back in the day...very easy to play and highly
addictive, I bought *syndicate wars* years later
but gave up on it, it just was too hard to control
my was like bullfrog re-invented the wheel
when they DIDN'T have to, there was nothing wrong
with the goddamn wheel....what a shame.
love the original.
