This is the world exclusive first review I did of System Shock 2 for PC Zone magazine back in 1999, showing the original grabs.
I knew I was down to review it, but hadn’t seen the game moving until I got the review copy. I sat in a darkened room for five days, shitting myself, playing the game, grabbing it and writing the review.
