System Shock 2

The superb System Shock 2 - one of the best games ever - available on http://www.gog.com/ from 11am today (Thursday).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/System_Shock_2
The game takes place on board a starship in a cyberpunk depiction of 2114. The player assumes the role of a lone soldier trying to stem the outbreak of a genetic infection that has devastated the ship.

Precursor to Thief, Bioshock, Dishonored.

Interview about the re-release:

Thumbs up

There are some useful texture/model updates which I tried a while back. The game uses the same Dark engine as the original Thief game, and thus looks a bit ropey. So get googling n' dloading for extra joy.

Still an all-time classic game though. Bit like Forbidden Planet is to SciFi film buffs
