Finished SS Remake minutes ago, phew, great game.
Yes Flying Penguin, cyberspace is like a very fine Descent, easy at first, but grows challenging.

For my part used Nexus mods for enhanced inventory (all weapons and items fill just a 1x1 square, stacking allowed) and as with all games, personal tricks -kind of a real life spell power, heh-.

At first it threw me off because, even though I remember the gameplay, we're so used to a game coddling you today, and leading you around on a set path. SS forces you to THINK. Look at the map, try to figure out WHY you can't get past a door. Where is the button/wiring panel/cyber interface to open the door and get to the inaccessible area? The game forces you to back track a lot, not just to find a newly opened path, but to get back to the recycler, charging port or healing machine. Compare that to Bioshock Infinite, which I've been replaying recently, which leads you around on a leash through a predetermined path.

Some younger gamers might find that frustrating. I found it frustrating at first, but then I started getting into the groove and enjoying the challenge again. I have been determined not to cheat and look at any walkthrus.

I must say they have greatly improved the mechanics of cyber space. I don't remember much about how it worked in the original game, but I do remember hating it, mainly due to the poor controls.

I hope SS2 gets the same treatment. And Deus Ex.

System Shock is more than a simple FPS, dungeon crawler, etc game.

It's a simulation, and at various times I had to say "doesn't get better than this" to all the world detail and consistency.
