As enjoyable as the classic Bullfrog sci-fi strategy game Syndicate is, it's sorely lacking in both dubstep and first-person shooting - so thank goodness EA rectified this mistake for the series' 2012 reboot.

As the improbably named Agent Miles Kilo, your job is to shoot lots of people, while remotely hacking the environment and even people's heads, and doing your best to evade your arch-nemesis: lens flare.

OK, so it's not the sequel, remake or reboot we wanted, it cynically exploits our nostalgia and mangles everything we loved about the original games, but...oh. It has a pretty good four-player co-op mode?

Syndicate’s confused storyline gives way to passable shooting overlaid with a pointless layer of hacking frippery.
