Same cool concept, same cool aesthetic, very tired genre.

I'm a shooter fan, a HUGE shooter fan, but sometimes it would be nice if when a storied, beloved franchise gets a reboot it didn't turn up as a shooter, or an action shooter, or an RPG shooter, or a fill-in-the-blank shooter.

Syndicate looks lovely, it's enticing, but I still wish it wasn't going to be a shooter.
