Syndicate is the first game in the Syndicate series. It is an isometric tactical squad game and was released in 1993.
The player assumes the role of an executive, and controls a team of four agents through a series of missions, one per geographic area. Each mission has a specific task; kill agents, persuade a key figure, escort a key figure, assassinate a key figure, etc. Although a lot of fighting is typically involed, it is possible to complete some missions without firing a single shot by skillful use of the Persuadertron.
Success in missions grants the player money, which can be used to upgrade agents with cybernetic parts and equip them with more powerful weapons, which in turn allows them to handle more difficult missions as the game progresses.
