"What's a Co-Op Spotlight," you ask? It's our way of bringing extra attention to major co-op releases on launch day, providing you with highlights from past articles, information on co-op features, and plans for our future coverage.
I'm sure you understand that it can be difficult to review a game's co-op features before it has been widely released. Even when we are granted early access to review copies it can be impractical, and at times impossible, to review a game's co-op features. Co-Optimus's Co-Op Spotlight will not only keep you up to date on launch day co-op features, it will also let you know when we plan on publishing our Co-Op Review.
This weeks Co-Op Spotlight goes to Syndicate. This is a reboot of a 1993 real-time tactical shooter. Like everything else that's ever been rebooted, it's now an FPS. As you might imagine, this hasn't gone over well with some old-school fans of the game. You can see one fan's journey through several stages of grief in our featured stories below.
Syndicate will be available on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. We expect to have our Co-Op Review posted on 2.28.2012.
