REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

System Shock is now freeware !!!
Posted on Thursday, February 28 2008 @ 20:22:30 Eastern

No this is not a joke, System Shock is now downloadable for free over the internet. Just click on the link below, and you will be taken to a website that explains everything you need to know about downloading the game.

Due to the fact that this game was released for DOS, you're probably expecting that you would have to download DOSbox. While it does use DOSbox, you don't need it in order to play System Shock. The great thing about this download is that DOSbox is integrated into the download. Which breaks up the tedium needed to play games for DOSbox.

However, this download does have technical flaws. You would find the game to occasionaly crash (especially, when closing an overworld map), and there's no patch released to remedy this. There are also times when your character will uncontrolably turn in a certain direction (there's no patch for this problem either).

Despite all of this, System Shock is a very enjoyable game to play, especially to those who have never played it before (like myself).
