SHODAN Don't Surf

What Might have Been on the Irrational Website outlines some discarded concepts from early in the development of System Shock 2, including a story concept Ken Levine says "had the player going to a spaceship to assassinate a character similar to Colonel Walter Kurtz from Apocalypse Now." Another idea for the action/RPG sequel involved zero gravity, and he also discusses the way the game was developed in a single 900 square-foot room, and how they embraced the idea of "F'ing with the player."

No sequel could ever live up to System Shock 2.
Agreed. SS2 certainly didn't live up to the original (although it gave it a pretty decent shot in most respects, and the interface was a big improvement). If a SS3 was made, I could only hope they would have learned from the mistakes made in Bioshock. I fear that they didn't view them as mistakes, however.
