System Shock is a computer game row, which is to be settled in the category of the 3D-Action-Rollenspiele. The play row unites an above average player liberty and many elements of the Cyberpunk category, with which as indirect predecessors likewise from Warren of the Spector Deus ex series developed it apply.
System Shock appeared 1994 for MS-DOS-PC. It was developed by the Looking Glass of Studios and driven out by Origin.
The 3D-Action-Rollenspiel plays in the future on the space station CIT aristocracy. The age Ego of the player settles a hacker job and receives as reward a CyberSpace interface. When it awakes after its artificial healing sleep, it must state that on the station a heavy accident occurred. Artificial intelligence Shodan, which controls CIT aristocracy, became moved and threatened now mankind.
The play captivates by for the time at that time an efficient 3D-Grafik-Engine, which is partly superior in its abilities of the well-known Doom engines, what by the fact marks itself among other things that it permits also diagonal levels and the variable force of gravity. The rudimentary physics engine was revolutionary for this time; thus thrown articles fell automatically to Boden.Ausserdem much value on a binding history with many idioms were put, instead of only on pure Action e.g. to the wall. Actually one could specify in the attitudes whether one wants to design the play rather for Shooter or on game of roles.
The successor system Shock 2 appeared 1999 and falls back to the events of the first part. The diagram was revised and the control as well as the interface were improved accordingly. The play of Looking Glass of Studios and irrationally Games was developed. The play of Looking Glass of Studios and electronics was produced kind.
The second part plays in the year 2114 on board the over-light-fast spaceship "from brown". Six months after departure of the ship from the earth the crew stands for the main ship attached heavy cruiser briefly before a civil war between the crew of the of brown and the soldiers of the UNN Rickenbacker. Before the situation can to intensify itself, the ships receive a strange signal from the surface of the planet rope Ceti 5. An investigation crew is taken in by the there annelidenartigen natures psychologically and brings it finally on board the of brown. The player, a soldier of the UNN, is equipped in this situation with cybernetic implants and wakes up some days after the events on the of brown from a cryogenic sleep. Meanwhile the strange Anneliden, which calls itself now "the mass", assimliert the crew and the ship took over. The player explores gradually the events of the last days and discovers, in what respect the AI Shodan from the first part is involved into all expirations.
The diagram engine of the play be based on an easily improved diagram stand of the play Thief produced by the same manufacturer: The Dark Project. That means that the diagram is no Augenschmaus, but animations and the sound window blind for conditions at that time were considerable. The feeling of the isolation, the opponents already expenditure-provoked in the predecessor and noise-mix from schlurfenden monsters and unidentifizierbaren sounds of the of brown produces a fearful atmosphere, as it can better hardly be. For many players system Shock is unequalled 2 in things fright moments.
The fact that the player can develop in many different directions and on pure force of arms does not only have to rely, provides for a high Wiederspielbarkeitsfaktor.
Contrary to the predecessor system Shock 2 with several players can Internet be played over the network or cooperatively (if the Patch is installed). The moreover one exist various fan projects, which sat down among other things it to the goal of up-polishing the diagrams of the meanwhile nevertheless all right betagten play.
The rights at system Shock, which in the year 2006 was renewed, lie since the dissolution of Looking Glass completely with the industry giant electronics kind. Annually assumptions emerge over a third part, the probability are however extremely small. Irrationally Games mentioned however that meanwhile on an indirect successor with the title BioShock one works. On the E3 2006 in Los Angeles the play was presented and made at the professional world good impression. According to the Publisher Take 2 will biosquat in the course of the yearly 2007 on the Xbox 360 and the PC to appear. It is to be assumed characters are not to be found such as Shodan in this play. However the interface will resemble from system the Shock 2 much. The leading programmer describes BioShock as mixture from The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, Doom 3 and system Shock 2.
