Critic Reviews for Syndrome

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 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.

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.

While not utterly broken, it doesn’t do anything to stand out from its peers so there isn’t much reason to pick it up.

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.

First off, this game is insanely overpriced for what it is. If it was a little cheaper, I'd say you could enjoy it the way you would enjoy a bad horror movie. It does have a spooky atmosphere due to the isolation aspect, but it's not enough. I think the developers need to learn to take inspiration from other sources but still using their own ideas.

Syndrome doesn't bring anything to the table as a survival horror. There are many better games in the genre.

Where Syndrome should have been a love letter to classic sci-fi horror games, it instead feels like a drunken, rambling text sent at three in the morning.
