Trivia

Uses the Thief graphics engine. However, many players were dissatisfied with the low resolution graphics, and a fan-made modification has been released that replaces all the graphics with more memory-intensive high-resolution graphics. See more »

Quotes

Bronson: They've killed my men and now they've killed me. I'm holding my guts inside me with both hands; I'm almost done. Resist. This is bigger than my little life, the lives of my men, and the lives of the people I was forced to kill. Resist. Humanity demands it. Resist.

Greatest Piece of Interactive Entertainment Ever.
29 April 2002 | by (Lincoln, Nebraska) – See all my reviews

This game is simply the best game ever. End of story. Ok, not end of story... speaking of the story, it's really quite brilliant. It may seem like standard cheezy sci-fi stuff, but it's really a tale about extremes. The question the games poses, in my opinion... is which extreme is better... the strictly mechanical or the strictly biological? The answer the game poses is that a combination of the two is best. SHODAN represents the purely mechanical, The Many represent the purely biological.

Humanity represents the midway point, and the proof that humanity is going about it the right way lies in the fact that they created both the other two parties... (one by way of the other.) As well as the fact that humanity wins in the end. Or do we? Hope to see a System Shock 3 some day. (Please let this be one of those ironic comments people look back on and say "ha, look at that! we all know there was a System Shock 3 and it rocked! ho ho, he didn't even know there would be one then!) Please?
