Hey look at me.  I am playing Syndicate Wars in Win 7 64 bit, with music.

You can to.  I have the original disk, but still had to rip the music to OGG files.

Interesting. I think I threw out my Syndicate Wars box during the great "De-hoarding my computer room during the early 2010 blizzards in Virginia" hysteria. I may have kept the CD but I've had little luck even being able to access my older CD-ROM games' files in Vista 64-bit,  much less play or install them.

I hope Syndicate or Syndicate Wars are among the old Bullfrog titles EA claims to have some interest in doing proper re-makes or continuations of: (pointed out in the Wikipedia entry)

If you look at Bullfrog's games list, I blame its eventual dissolution on too much sequel fixation somewhere around 1998. It's a shame the studio's not around anymore imho.

That's like blaming owls because I suck at making analogies.

I still have my old Syndicate Wars box it turns out, just don't ask me where the CD is.   icon_redface

I had posted pix in that PC game box thread a couple years back. Let's dig it up!   Bring your own!



I still love to remember how it took me something like 2 1/2 days to download the demo via 2400 baud modem.  biggrin

And then the funny thing is, for the mid 1990s, it felt like I was playing something over-the-top violent. In today's world, nobody would blink an eye at it.

We've already had a thousand nostalgia game threads here but man, when I've leafed through dusty old game boxes from roughly 1993 to 1997 or so, I just shake my head. Why don't we have games like those anymore? And I don't mean pixelicious 2-D or voxelized, just in terms of good ole' gameplay.  icon_smile
