Being one of my Top 5 PC games of all times, I really have to advertise this whole deal. System Shock 2 is a bit like Bioshock, but with much more of a PC slant. This means stats you must level up, an inventory system, and intense exploration of each level. Not only a shooter, but more of a space survival horror game, you must fight your way through mutated crew members, rogue robots, and even greater horrors.
If this sounds complicated, don't worry. The entire game is mouselook controlled with a UI overlay that can be removed or retrieved at the touch of a button. All of the stats are under the hood and mostly serve as barriers to using more advanced weapons. All you need to worry about is surviving. I have mentioned this game repeatedly as a touchstone for good pacing, appropriate use of horror themes, and balanced gameplay. If you enjoy PC games at all, I sincerely urge you to complete this one.
I have yet to play this game, so this is definitely welcome news.
Wow, I will be checking it out when it comes out for sure. Didn't really see this one coming, welcomed news.
Thanks for the heads up. Take my money, GoG!
This is indeed good news. I'm excited.
This is the best press release they've had ever, I think. They usually botch their huge announcements and they just let this one out quickly and quietly. Works much better than what they've done in the past.
Well, it's out now if any of you have a desire to be a cool person.
Done! I actually do feel a little more cool now...
