System shock 2 is a 14 year old game, so graphically it's dated. But the gameplay and immersion still top most recent games. I'm playing through Bioshock infinite now and it just feels like I'm going through the motions.
I introduced my son to system shock 2 a few months ago, so I just got through playing through it again. No comparison. I was totaly immersed once again in System Shock 2. It's a game that will have you on edge. The sound design, like all of the looking glass games, is incredible. You will have chills go down your spine quite often. You will probably shriek like a little girl on several occasions as well.
There was a patch that was released recently that makes it easy to install and play. Do yourself a favor and check it out.
