It's nothing like the originals, but from what I hear there may be a remake of those coming along in the same vein as the upcoming Firaxis X-Com game.
The game itself is bloody fantastic, though, in my opinion, if a little short on the campaign side. It is, however, everything that a FPS Syndicate game should be.
The multiplayer was clearly the focus here, though the single player is far from terrible. But to be honest, you get a well written, cyberpunk movie style storyline mode and hours of hilarious fun with friends thanks to the co-op missions. It's a damn good game in and of itself, and although I think the originals are amazing (and still frequently played by me), the nostalgia and references to the classics, and the fact that it plays so smoothly and well make me perfectly happy to call this a Syndicate game.
