You will notice that I've added this to Wrath of Earth's recommendations (and hence vice versa). This is because they've often been likened to each other and have similar gameplay (although System Shock is further ahead graphics-wise). [/plug]

I would be downloading this NOW, but 120 mB don't get along well with dial-up.

Try the remake we have on Reloaded. It's only 64 MB.

64 mB don't get along well either. Even 10 mB takes about an hour.

I never heard of System Shock before. I clicked on the link because the news item was interesting to say the least. You my friend should be in marketing.

I think I should make my newsposts more interesting too, very few people have paid attention to Marathon and Wrath Of Earth. When I get M1 done...

Wow.. can't believe I'm actually seeing this for DL.. great, great game. A true masterpiece of cyberpunk horror, was a kid when I last played this and have no reservations telling you that it scared the **** outta me!

Thumbs up

This fps game requires far more than just eye-hand coordination. In fact it perfectly combines adventure, role-playing and action elements. In my humble opinion its a milestone in game history.

Holy Jumped-up Jesus Zombie Cyborg Christ! It's System Shock!

:nuts:

A new crown jewel for Abandonia.

I may have to load and finally try to beat this game. (I never managed to quite finish it. I got stuck near the very end and had to return to college or some other such nonsense). Thanks for brightening my weekend. I shall donate today.
