Shodan: The Polito form is dead, insect. Are you afraid? What is it you fear? The end of your trivial existence? When the history of my glory is written, your species shall only be a footnote to my magnificence.

Star Craft+Resident Evil+Hackers+Terminator=System Shock 2
5 August 2003 | by (Kansas, USA) – See all my reviews

One of the greatest games I've ever seen in my life. It had all of the best gaming elements in it. There was the strategic points where you had to decide what to do, like games like Star Craft. There was the Survival Horror factor, the Many for instense that reminded me, in many ways of the zombies from the Resident Evil Series. The there was the blatant hacking like the movie hackers and the attempted take over by the machines, reminisent of the Terminator movies.

All in all, this game takes all the key ingredients, stirs them together, and boils to a fine stew of the greatest game in history.

PLEASE, PLEASE, let there be a System Shock 3????!?!!
