Quandary Review by Gordon Alpin

"Syn-Factor [Symbiocom] is an interesting game with an intriguing story and a good dose of mystery that makes you want to play it through to the end just to find out what happens. It is a first-person perspective adventure within an intelligent, but unrelieved science-fiction setting. By 'unrelieved' I mean that the whole game revolves around exploring fairly sterile, claustrophobic and largely uninhabited environments including your spaceship, a space station, and corporate complexes. Everything, including the interface, is metallic or synthetic and even the planet you land on in the final section of the game is washed out and lifeless."

"The puzzles are not too difficult for experienced adventurers and are logically consistent within the game world. You will spend much of your time getting equipment working, trying to find coordinates, access codes and passwords, and generally piecing together the information you gather. This means a lot of snooping around and careful reading of electronic mail to extract significant words. And, no, a birth date won't do as a code for accessing a computer or a locked door, you'll have to look further than that."

"Syn-Factor is aimed squarely at science fiction fans. Although it's a bit too metallic and sterile for my taste, I'm sure that many sci-fi fans will appreciate the particular ambience this creates. Regardless of this, the game was interesting enough to keep me playing, and I particularly appreciated that your character is both nameless and faceless so the game invites all players equally to step into the role and experience the story."
