System Shock 2 is a great FPS/RPG game. I found it at the local store for around $10 and thought there'd be something horribly wrong with it. Boy was I mistaken.
One of the best and most fun games I'd played in awhile, this game took me for a ride. From the moment I started it up, to the time I beat it, I played it many times. Even after beating it, you can replay it and get a different game out of it.
There are many skills and different strategies you can use to go around the game. You can choose to use physic powers to help you throughout the game, or you can decide to use guns and blast your way through instead. The beauty of it is you can mix and match skills to make characters that suit whatever style of play you like.
The AI in the game isn't too bad either. It gets scary at times if you just walk around. They jump up out of nowhere. Or you'll think you have an area cleared and be walking back through it and more enemies will be there. So don't think you’re safe just because you've gone through there before.
are many puzzles in the game. Not that any of them are that hard to figure out but they do add some more fun to the game. Some do take some time to figure out, but once you do the game gets right back to rolling.
The RPG part of the game comes in with the customization of your character. There are many skills to choose from. Although you don't gain levels, you find items lying around throughout the game that you can use to make your skills stronger.
The graphics aren't that bad for the game being as old as it is either. I was surprised when I started playing it about how well it looked. The weapons have decent detail put into them. The enemies are quite detailed and give the feeling that they are actually real.
The weapons add some fun to the game too. There are melee weapons such as a wrench, or guns you can use to shoot the enemies. Or you can go the physic way and use the orb arm attachment thingy and blast your opponents via your mind.
I'm glad this is a game I found, and have loved it since I first picked it up. It'll be a game that even in the future I'll pick back up and play again because it's that great. For $10, this was a blast of a game I'm glad I took the time to look at.
