The original System Shock was mind-blowing when it released in 1994. Never before had storytelling, RPG elements, and open-ended gameplay. Now, over two decades later, Night Dive Studios has remastered the classic and brought it to modern hardware via Good Old Games. 

"With System Shock: Enhanced Edition, we're implementing game-changing improvements, including mouselook, widescreen, and a high resolution display mode," says Stephen Kick, CEO of Night Dive Studios. "The classic game has never been more accessible to a modern audience."

Night Dive Studios has upped the resolution of the original (640x480) to 1024x768 as well as a native 854x480 widescreen mode. A toggleable mouselook mode has been added along with a streamlined inventory system. Long overdue bug fixes and the ability to remap controls make this remaster something worth looking into even for players who still have the original version.

However, even those without the original version can experience it as it was with System Shock: Classic, a completely unaltered version of System Shock that runs on modern PCs. Both Classic and Enhanced versions are bundled together and those who have bought System Shock 2 on GOG.com get a 40% discount.
