System Shock 2 - Retrospective @ PC Gamer

by Couchpotato, 2013-10-01 00:19:39

PC Gamer takes a look back at System Shock 2 in their next Reinstall article.

Almost 15 years on from its release, and with two separate spiritual successors, System Shock 2 still feels fresh. The newest release through GOG.com and Steam allows for higher resolutions, as well as support for the mods created by the game’s community. The interaction is far more complex than BioShock’s run-and-gun approach, and certainly more terrifying. BioShock’s story may be deeper and more refined, but the RPG elements of System Shock 2 still feel ahead of their time today.
