Satellite Reign

Syndicate reborn.

In a future where the world is dominated by militarized technology companies (and their satellites) led by evil people, it is up to your small upstart group to take down the biggest fish and take control for yourself!

If you liked Syndicate then you will like this game where you can control up to 9 units on an open city map. You are then let loose to do as you please, taking actions like: hitting security stations to slow down cameras. Robbing banks to get money. Fund researchers in developing new tech to install into your cloned cyborg agents. Bribe guards to walk away or leave doors open and turrets deactivated.

It's great that all the objectives have more than one approach to them, and the fact that you can't save when you are "wanted" (cool down timer) or in a "restricted zone" means you need to be on your toes and to plan ahead carefully - in my case to sneak around a lot. I also quite liked that the bad guys also get stronger tech as you do, so you are never quite overpowered until very late in the game.

The more the merrier!

Definitely one I recommend to strategy / tactics gamers. You'll need to dig for the story if you want to, but even just playing for the surface game is well worth your while. 4 mecha tanks out of 5.

Insight: The hackers ability to "recruit" people is very useful. Especially on strong enemies.
