System Shock 2 is a first-person shooter action role-playing survival horror video game for Microsoft Windows, Apple OS X and Linux. The title was designed by Ken Levine and co-developed by Irrational Games and Looking Glass Studios. Originally intended to be a standalone title, its story was changed during production into a sequel to the 1994 PC game System Shock; the alterations were made when Electronic Arts—who owned the System Shock franchise rights—signed on as publisher. System Shock 2 was released on August 11, 1999, in North America.
Okay, so ’09’s Arkham Asylum wasn’t technically the Dark Knight’s first PlayStation outing – but it was the game which best demonstrated how to do a comic book licence right, revolutionising hum-drum heroon- thug action and hitting us with a rogue’s gallery of colourful villains to pacify with our bat-gizmos. Our only surprise is that Joker didn’t make the list, too.
