I really love that you guys post a bunch of additional deals on these posts. Thanks!

Ditto.

Syndicate is on sale for 10 bucks on greenmangaming. Despite it not living up to its pedigree, is it worth $10 for singleplayer?

No, prior to release the game didn't actually look too bad but at the last minute they decided to add a shitload of visual effects to the game, out of control lens flare, blue filter, bloom - oh my god the fucking BLOOM in this game #$*! etc. - some suspect they did this because early previews said the graphics looked dated so they tried to cover up poor textures etc.

FOV is locked to 65 with no way of changing it, there are a handful of console command tweaks to try to turn off some of the bullshit effects but you get really strange results, look one direction and the game looks good - turn another and it's almost too dark to see.

Poor sales resulted in no after sales support, no patch to fix it - that's why it's $10 now.

here's the before they fucked it up with bloom and after shot.
