You wake up dazed and confused, probably from the effects of cryosleep. No one can be seen around, but you soon start to find the bodies of your dead crewmen. The ship is adrift, and whoever – or whatever – killed your crewmates is probably still around. Syndrome is a sci-fi survival horror game that takes place aboard the "Valkenburg", an exploration and science ship equipped with the most advanced systems in the Novacore fleet. You need to find out what happened to your crewmen and do whatever you can to survive this nightmare. The enemies are powerful and numerous, which means that stealth and evasion are often the best strategy. You'll find weapons aboard the ship, but ammo is scarce and should be wisely spent.

Syndrome takes after similar space horror games like Dead Space or System Shock 2, creating a well crafted atmosphere and interesting setup, but failing to achieve either enjoyable gameplay or good enough graphical level, incapable of reaching its full potential.

From Dead Space to Event Horizon, Syndrome brings back classic elements of deep space horror. The setting maybe terrifying, but gameplay gets boring after a couple of hours, because of the constant need of checking the map and visiting the same places once and again. VR survival mode for PS4 works great.

Syndrome is a frightening experience that reuses the outer space - survival horror medley; it makes us suffer thanks to its overwhelming difficulty and mechanics: run and hide... or die.

Review in Spanish | Read full review

Syndrome has a foundation in place to be a creepy horror story that focuses on the desolation of outer space and the madness it can bring, but the execution is a few light years behind. It might give players something more to try out for a Halloween-themed gaming binge, but players might also die of boredom long before they succumb to shock.
