I played the Amiga version of this game a lot but never completed it...
Certain elements of the game; like the research option and the persuadertron were excellent features and the cold blooded ruthlessness of some of the missions was quite shocking at the time as well!
I hated the fact that you could not see inside the buildings!
I only ever knew one Amiga version... there never was an AGA version released was there?
For me, Cannon Fodder was more fun but there is no getting away from just how important Syndicate was in the scheme of things.
On another matter - I think that seeing the game intro is great - rather that than see more character set up screens and it is difficult to show later game levels unless you have saved positions...
Nice Video Matt, Cheers!
