I think Peter Molyneux mentioned that he might go back to Syndicate, but now it turns out that EA are doing this equel. I hope they remember the gameplay this time (Syndicate Wars was disappointing). I loved the original on the Amiga and PC!

Nope. Worked great on PC. One of the best games ever.

Well, provided that you had a fairly fast PC at the time. I don't think it was so hot on a 386.
