Before you download this, you should know what you're getting. This is the floppy disk version of the game, which has lower quality music and no voice-overs. plus, people are not making mods for it, so if you want mouselook, good luck altering the code yourself. All in all, it's incredibly inferior. I'd only recommend this version if you have no money. But, you're using a computer, so you probably can come up with ten dollars to buy the enhanced edition on GOG.

yes SS2 is much better, but give credit where credit is due, this game was pretty much unlike anything else when it first came out, it was REVO...... hmmm, what's that word? well it was that!

If you watched LazyGamerReview's YouTube video, clearly he loves the game.

I found this very clunky. System Shock 2 is incredible, though. It's just this one that's a bit... blegh.

I recommend getting system shock portable, because it includes a mouse look mod that makes the game easier to play.

This game was only recenlty released in 1994, Around 1994, many of the technologies that is used in 3d gaming, including exHD, multiprocessing, 3d ( without glasses ), and many other things, was around during this time.

The original Playstation and Sega Saturn was also launched. This thing is running on pure DOS, which would be a bitch to run on the Playstation or Saturn, and achieve the results of a DOS game.

Imagine if it was programmed for a 3d game console at the time, chances are it would have been ignored, compared to DOOM.

Playing this game looks lik

Bioshock must NOT be compared with this master piece. Bioshock has nothing on this title.

Sure this title may be old, but even today, it delivers better game play and "horror" moments then most games today because of limited controls, limited graphics and limited Field of View.

The Graphics leaves much to the imagination, the limited controls leaves you surprised in many situations because it's hard to react fast with the clonky yet perfect controls. And the 74 FOV makes it hard to be prepared.

The Atmosphere of the game keeps pushing you to the edge of the seat and the darn annoying yet perfect villain, the rampant A.I. Is so well done it's kind of scary, even for a game this old.

I'm a System Shock Fan, and my 3D art and drawings and things i make in Sandbox games clearly depicts this!

Man I've played this game back in 1994 on a 386... super long loading times due to slow harddrives. Anyway this game is way ahead in delivering a claustrophobic horror atmosphere than any of it's spiritual successors like SS2 or BioShock and shit. This is the best game out of the series bar none!

A simply amazing title. Full of suspense, horror, and more. A must-download for any Bioshock fan.
