FPS Rantings

Before Bioshock’s superiority was System Shock 2’s piss-inducing frights

by Mike on September 24th, 2007

Have your diapers ready for Shodan.

That’s correct. You may be having the time of your life in Rapture, but let’s not forget its spiritual predecessor—the space horror game titled System Shock 2. Granted that SS2 is the sequel to the ancient System Shock, but I’m here to promote my retro review on the former.

SS2 is just plain fantastic. While I may have just started playing Bioshock, I would say by first impression that the predecessor’s earlier portions are much more challenging. You had to fight and claw for each ammo clip, bag of potato chips, or health pack.

We’re not even talking about the deterioration of weapons yet.

Without further ado, I bring you a System Shock 2 retrospective review. Have you ever experienced a piece of video game history?
