411mania’s Marc Morrison compares and contrasts the work of Irrational’s beloved shooters System Shock 2 and BioShock in this special feature! See how they stack up to each other.
IMOH SS2 is the better game, it was far ahead of its time, the deep customization, engaging story, amazing atmosphere and of course SHODAN (probably one of the best villains ever created). Bioshock was an amazing game in its own right and could probably stand tall next to SS2, but there is just something special about SS2 that cannot be described it's like you know you're busy playing the future of the FPS genre - a game that shouldn't exist at that moment, yet it does... Unfortunately the magic came with playing SS2 back in 1999, most of the 'new age' gamers will not experience this and claim Bioshock to be the better game.
