You were the world's greatest hacker, at least until you were caught during one of your famous break-ins. Now the TriOptimum Corporation secretly requests your services in return for your freedom. Your task? To hack into the corporate research facility named Citadel. In order to assist you, Vice President Edward Diego has agreed to pay for a special neural implant.
The drawback for such an operation is that it takes six months to heal. When you finally awaken from your comatose state, it seems the date isn't the only thing that has changed. Citadel is now home to cyborgs, security robots, and hideous mutants under the control of SHODAN (the Sentient Hyper-Optimized Data Access Network). You're the only one who can stop it!
System Shock is a first-person action-adventure that offers a true 3D environment complete with variable gravity. Looking through the heads-up-display of your new visual cortex, you'll be able to plug into computers and download important data. This will be essential in order for you to bypass the secured areas and defenses set up by SHODAN.
Don't stay online too long — SHODAN will be able to detect your presence in cyberspace and send robots to your location! In order to survive, you'll need to find various weapons, dermal patches and hardware attachments at different points within Citadel. This enhanced CD version offers full speech for all characters while you listen to logs, e-mail, and video mail across multiple terminals. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
