System Shock 2 [Intel Wineskin] Lion Compatible |396.60 MB
System Shock 2 is an action role-playing video game, designed by Ken Levine for the personal computer. The title is a sequel to the 1994 PC game System Shock, and was co-developed by Irrational Games and Looking Glass Studios. The sequel was originally designed as a standalone title with no relation to System Shock; story changes were made when Electronic Arts—who owned the Shock franchise rights— signed on as publisher.
The game takes place on board a starship in a cyberpunk depiction of 2114. The player assumes the role of a lone soldier trying to stem the outbreak of a genetic infection that has devastated the ship. Like System Shock, Gameplay consists of ﬁ rst person shooting and exploration. A role-playing system allows the player to develop unique skills and traits, such as hacking and psionic abilities.
The latest community patches have been installed as well as a widescreen hack and a hi-res texture & model pack. Most graphics and stability issues have been resolved. The ingame cutscenes had to be disabled because of Wineskin compatibility issues!
Due to the hack, only two resolutions are available 640x480 and 1280x800 - if your monitor canʼt handle these you have to boot into Windows and re-apply the patch to ﬁ t your needs with the included batch script (widescreen.bat), which can be found inside the games resource folder. (Just do a search of you canʼt ﬁnd it!)
On some ATI cards the sky and space are not rendered correctly - this is a very minor graphics glitch that doesnʼt aﬀ ect gameplay.
