System Shock 2 begins with you being unfrozen from a long cryogenic sleep aboard the Rickenbacker, a security spaceship assigned to tail the Von Braun on her maiden voyage. Apparently, the Von Braun has been infested by an unknown alien race and has converted the crew into relatively intelligent zombies. You must gather bits of audio clips along the way to figure out what happened to your crew and, more importantly, how you can rid the ship of the aliens. Rely on your skills training from either the Navy, Marines, or OSA to guide you on this difficult path. This 3D title offers unbelievable graphics, as the Thief engine is utilized to provide mouth-watering environments and character skins. The astounding graphics, varied RPG elements, and fluid action make this title worthwhile.

About System Shock Infinite with 0 comments by xdiesp_ on Mar 2nd, 2015

System Shock Infinite 2.0 has been released!

We are pleased to announce that the beta phase is now over and the mod can be played in full.
The team wishes to thank all who contributed to the project with their tests and reports!

System Shock Infinite is a story mod which extends the original finale with a quest to restore the amnesiac protagonist's identity, through hundreds of new events in the main campaign. Since version 2.0, the quest continues into all-new Cyberspace levels and features a plotline with multiple endings. Enjoy our extended trailer for a complete preview of the mod!

What is the story about? System Shock 2 never ended: to this day, the amnesiac player is still trapped in Shodan's virtual reality. Taking inspiration from Solaris and Groundhog Day, the story presents you with a stream of hallucinations about your lost comrades. Each has their point of view on the situation and yourself. The ones you trust rebuild your new identity, breaking the stalemate. Full script.

How does it play like? Shaken, not stirred: the new events are familiar variations of the vanilla ones. To tackle the issue of difficulty within the previous version, combat in 2.0 can be as advanced as you like. Play on the lower difficulties and you get a FPS with rpg elements. Play on the hardest setting and you get an RPG with shooting mechanics, requiring good knowledge of the skills system.

For those who loved Thief and/or System Shock should check out Terra Nova, another Looking Glass Studios Classic brought back from the dead thanks to Night Dive Studios:

Just letting people know.

Also download SS2Tool v5.3.

It will download a few updates and bring your game up to date.

It will put 'Blue mod manager; in the game folder too.
You can then run the Blue mod manager and see all the mods in the modpack i mention in my last comment.
You can then choose to activate or deactivate each mod.

system shock 2 mod pack

It has most of the the good mods.
Not sure if it works ok with this mod.
I think it should be ok as the modoack has its own folder ,but it does overwrite one ini file in the root folder.

This game is not scare but filled with freaking annoying things such as respawning and boring enemies, alarm-cameras everywhere, questionable rpg elemnts, poor animations, hard to find a way moments, slow player movement makes exploring like hell, etc. Just deleted it yet.

Playing it with Rebirth and SHTUP installed, it's worth it. I liked it more then Deus Ex, may be because you start without everything but bare hands. Survival horror at it's best. And it's cyberpunk!
The game ahead of it's time.
