One of the best games ever. Highly innovative, and actually, today’s games can’t keep up with this old game, even the latest bioshock, which lacks all the RPG, coop, and cyberpunk elements…

If you never played this game before, try it with a friend in coop, pure fun.

To enhance the experience, there are plenty of mods to upgrade the graphics and the textures. try www.strangebedfellows.de

Get the SS2 mod manager, which will make everything simple, and use the SHTUP6 (high definition textures), Rebirth beta 1, and then try some improved and balanced gameplay mods, most famous are Straylight ADaoB v0.2.8 or Pops D&E. There are literally dozens of other mods to try though, so pick what seems fun for you.

Enjoy this masterpiece ;)

Ah man, this game brings back memories. I especially liked the ending, which set things up for a 3 game, though I doubt they’ll ever make one :(

Well not entirely true, it seems that a sequel is actually in production. The bad news is that the developers are mediocre compared to Looking Glass or Irrational.

I don’t know if I’m allowed to post links to other sites, but here it is:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/System_Shock_2

[quote]On January 9, 2006, Electronic Arts renewed its trademark protection on the System Shock name leading to speculation that a System Shock 3 may be under development. These rumors have been further enhanced by an issue of PC Gamer UK that mentioned that EA assigned the team behind The Godfather game in charge of developing System Shock 3. A few days earlier, PC Gamer had printed an article where Irrational Games co-founder, Ken Levine, expressed great disappointment at EA over the development of System Shock 3, “EA just didn’t give a shit about that game…I think if EA were to do it, it would’ve been just a regular first-person shooter with a boss monster at the end.” Some game journalists have expressed angst over the rumor, considering that The Godfather has received mixed reviews from critics.[/quote]

Very good game and decent review!

It might be an idea to link into its cyberpunk elements (of which it has many)

I wouldn’t say that it is necessarily better than BioShock but i would still consider it a great game.

First time I found this game, I dropped it (after being killed multiple times
by hybrids in the first level) for a while. Somehow didn’t find out, how to
play it…

In the mean time played Deus Ex.

Recently I found it in the corner and gave it a second try. Now beside DeusEx
it is one of my favorite games ever!

I really like the game-play with its all RPG elements, the litle details e.g. the nethack-like minigame and scavenging for
useful items and information in wide levels to go on instead of just killing enemies in tunnel like levels…

Amazing crossover between RPG, FPS and survival horror. One of the greatest atmospheres I can think of from a videogame. You just feel so lonely watching the stars and the black space through the windows, knowing there must be a zombie waiting for you in the next hall.

Felix said:

Great atmosphere and story indeed. But I’ve never played it through because I was always stuck. At the time of release it was too difficult for me and now that I can figure it out and am not so scared and awe-struck anymore, I have no clue how to accomplish certain mission goals and my skills are more or less useless. I probably should have started with an easier difficult standard but still… this game beats me. I’m tempted to say that the mechanics are awkward and messed up.

I actually like this game far more than Deus Ex, and that’s saying something because Deus Ex is one of my favorite games. This game was definitely alittle prettier, be it simplicity but still the over all appearance comes together better than Deus Ex, making it alittle more Emersive. I enjoyed the plot alittle more as well, Despite the multiple options you had in Deus Ex, you still only had 3 endings, it led to a lot of replay value when it came to which NPCs you still had around and who was where, but in terms of being Coherant, since sometimes plot points from other ways the game could be played would mesh in Deus Ex. System Shock 2 advances at a smother pace. and you don’t have to deal with JC’s boring voice. In terms of actually cyberpunk philosophy though Deus Ex takes the cake as it has Rapant AI’s as well. Xerxes and Icarus are very similiar.

10/10 Best game.

Vanilla said:

Probably the only game which could have a chance in a staring contest against Deus Ex. I actually played nothing but Quake, pretty much from 1996-2000, but I heard that this was good and ‘borrowed’ it from a friend. After playing it through the first time I fell in love with it. I played it in 2001 (I think) and have been through it about 5 or 6 times since. It never gets boring. More atmospheric and claustrophobic than any other game out there - because you can’t conjure those properties with graphics alone, although most of todays delevopers don’t really care.

@Vanilla: You are absolutely right, SS2 still is the best FPS/Survival/Horror i have played, and i have played - like you - since the 90’s.
Absolute classic!!!

I am still not able to get my copy of SS2 working on Windows 98 or XP. Any hints ? Or is there a version that works under Windows XP ?

Katalyst said:

Hey Anon,

Systems Shock 2 is quite fickle to get working on many systems these days. I do not recommend Win98. XP should be fine but the real challenge lies in the hardware. Your graphics card may not agree or, if you have a dual core make sure you set the affinity for System Shock 2 to only one core (0 or 1). The dark engine does not seem to like Dual Core XD.
A good place to look for more help is www.strangebedfellows.de . Everything you need will be there :)

Just recently, System Shock 2 finally hit GoG.com:

http://www.gog.com/gamecard/system_shock_2

Make sure to visit www.systemshock.org (formerly strangebedfellows.de) - there’s been some essential updates lately including a new implementation of the game engine. All in all, the game experience is vastly improved, and the hassle to get it working is not nearly what it used to be.

Here a direct link to the SS2 Technical FAQ which will get you going, whether you’re dusting off an original game CD, or have just gotten the GoG version:

Considering that my previous post did not contain spam, but much rather legitimate links relevant to the game discussed here, it would be great if it could be reviewed and its contents published.
