  1. Although it's short, the high replayability factor and some brilliant additions to both equipment and gameplay, make this is one of the best solider-sim expansion packs ever released. Period.
  2. If you're looking for a smart game that doesn't require the patience of Job or the genius of Einstein, but a little more intelligence than a monkey with his hand on his joystick, then SWAT 4 and The Stetchkov Syndicate expansion pack are definitely for you.
  3. 85
    With challenging content, expanded multiplayer, enhanced single-player, and more weapons, there's plenty of game to be had.
  4. It may seem like a small thing but bringing an over-arcing storyline really knits the action together quite nicely, although it would have been even better if there were more than just the seven missions.
  5. Even for those people who hated the previous generations of the strategic break and enter, I suspect you'll come away loving this.
  6. The multiplayer portion of the game is where Swat 4 shines and it is no different with the expansion pack.
  7. With the Stetchkov Syndicate, the bar continues to plummet in terms of how much we can expect in our expansion packs. [May 2006, p.46]
