Which game do you prefer? Any hopes for SS3?
I think Shodan was a much better character in SS1 than in 2. I also liked how SS1 controlled and played. SS2 just felt more clunky, though it was still a great game.
Atmosphere in SS2 was probably better than 1 in terms of being spooky. I think one of my other issues is the whole skill system, which kind of felt a little tacked on at times.
SS2 had some things that 1 didn't, like the fact it played on the same engine as thief and the AI was bound not to cheat.
The result being the player could sneak up on enemies or avoid them. Then there is the fact that TTLG had THE BEST COLLISION in any game ever. This is in part why you enjoy the fluid movement and control of SS1. SS2 although seemingly clunky, had mantling from thief and many other great additions.
I have to agree.
Hell if they remade 1 with the same engine as two ir updated it with ANY new engine I woudl find it more enjoyable.
I like 2 but I don't like the controls/ movement of 1. (sorry. I like the story, audioclips etc.. but gah.)
If it's good then it's another System Shock game. If it's bad then there are already two good games in the series to play. This is my opinion on every remake, you only get burned if you're a stupid idiot and not wait at least a week after the game comes out to see if it's any good.
I don't think it matters. You don't play SS1 for the combat or combat difficulty. It's the level design and the way you have to figure out on your own what to do just from reading logs that counts.
I don't personally care about the remake because I already like the original, but assuming they don't screw it up horribly somehow then people who wouldn't have otherwise played the original will, which means there will be more SS fans, which means that there will be more people who want games like SS, which is good.
