I'd suggest you use howlongtobeat.com

I've played both and it doesn't matter a great deal if you skip the first one. Everything that you need to know about what has happened is explained adequately in the sequel. With that said, I still think System Shock 1 is a great game and worthwhile trying out. If graphics are a major issue for you then you might have a hard time getting into it as the game is getting close to 10 years old and has graphics similar to Doom/Marathon. The interface can also be a bit weird to get used to. The sequel is also dated graphically by today's standards but there are a few mods (SHTUP, Rebirth) & patches for it you can find that will improve the graphics. Aside from the graphics, I can't think of too many other barriers stopping you from really enjoying yourself with SS2, just watch your weapons because they degrade quickly and spend your modules wisely. My advice would be to play the sequel first, see how much you enjoy it and then if you're really curious or just love the game, go back and try SS1.

Note: If you do end up trying out SS1, make sure you useSSP, it makes the whole process of getting it up and running a lot simpler.

Hi, I'm looking for a game I used to play on the PC. Here's what I can remember about it:

  • I was playing it around 1999-2002
  • 2D graphics, reasonably large sprites for characters
  • Birds-eye viewpoint; similar camera angle to when you're walking around in an RPG like Chrono Trigger.
  • Basic art style, almost looked like the art had been whipped up in MS Paint
  • It was of the base-defense genre (similar to Horde mode in Gears of War). You would have ~30 seconds to build whatever defenses you could then you would have to defend yourselves from a wave of enemies.
  • You could build 3 things: a catapult, a tripwire and a wall. I think you could also throw rocks.
  • Enemies were humans. Some would just walk towards you, others would throw rocks or drive (blue?) tanks/cars
  • It was a 1 to 2 player game where both players would share the same keyboard
  • I believe it was an independent game (based on its quality)
  • I think the title had Mega in it?

Mega Battle 2

Awesome! Thanks. The one I was looking for was the prequel to this (MegaBattle).

I think you have to install the Bink codec, not entirely sure though. Been a while since I played it.

I've been meaning to play this but haven't bothered to install jre up until yesterday. I'll try it out soon, seems like an interesting take on the whole zombie thing.
