Starbreeze is an independent studio though, right? EA owns Bioware, they have a little more pull there.

I kinda figured Starbreeze made a pitch to EA about the Syndicate IP. Seems a little odd that EA would use them otherwise, since they have plenty of other in-house studios to use.

EA is the final say regardless of the studio. We only need to turn to Warhammer Online for proof in how that debacle played out.

It prob doesn't matter that much who came up with the idea of making it a shooter, but who made it a _shitty_ shooter. If it had been a great fun shooter, it probably would have sold.

The game played like something from 1-2 decades ago, and that's actually something I noticed in other Starbreeze Studio games, too. They seem a bit stuck in the past.

I stopped the single player campaign after some hours, I found it unbearable. From what I heard, the strengths of the game are apparently in coop. I know some guildies played coop, but they stopped quite quickly, too, so that's prob not enough to save the game, either.

Not every game has to be a FPS. get away from that stupid mentality. Watch and see how Firaxis does with UFO EA. You might learn a thing or two.

Top 5 Games to Remake/Sequel-ize:

1. Starflight (Star Control II was a rip-off of this game... not that that is a bad thing)
2. Dungeon Keeper
3. Master of Magic
4. Populous
5. Command HQ

I never even got the multiplayer demo on XBox live to work. It always gave me errors.
