Magazines – that back page is prime space to get some hooks in for the next issue, and the latest OXM (Official Xbox Magazine) has got hooks sharper than we’ve ever seen. “One of the best games ever made is reborn on Xbox 360,” it says in the latest issue, teasingly, following with the sucker punch: “Get the full story, only in OXM.”
So what could it be? The internet seems to think it’s Syndicate, the tell-tale blueprint style graphics are a bit of a give away, even if the hue’s different. Look:
Was Syndicate one of the best games ever? Possibly, it was a classic of its time and we’d love to see an updated version for more capable machines than the now rather humble Amiga 500. The mag says “on Xbox 360” but there’s no way that, if this is Syndicate, it wouldn’t be multiformat. That’s just platform-exclusive magazine chatter, we reckon.
If it’s not Syndicate, let’s hope it’s Halo. Hardly a secret, but – hey – it was pretty good. Regardless, the feature won’t apparently make the next issue, so we’ll need to wait until April for clarification.
