Wonderful and always relevant plot;
Well-made remake.
Successful and clean graphic interface.
Crazy and atypical graphic style.
Enveloping and even unsettling atmosphere.
Gameplay rooted in the past;
A somewhat outdated feeling in charge: one must adapt quickly.

A classic, but presented in a way that is accessible even to beginners.
Long-time fans will immediately feel at home.
Obsolete despite modernizations.
Difficulties not to be taken lightly.
Essentially "latest generation".

Impressive, labyrinthine level design
Many secrets for clever players
difficult riddles
An exceptional retro look with new modern elements.
Close combat is a bit heavy.
Few automatic save points
Inventory management with the controller is rather laborious.

One of the greats has returned
Its new graphic and visual aspect
His level of immersion and exploration.
SHODAN, you either love her or hate her, she is spectacular.
It is a demanding game and it is wonderful.
This is not for all players
The fight feels awkward.
The menu and some of its options appear outdated.
It can easily be overshadowed by more current proposals.

Citadel Station is awesome to explore
SHODAN & her minions are terrifying
Exploration, puzzle-solving, & combat feel good
Every new tool feels like a satisfying addition to your kit
Environments are very well upgraded from the original
You can arrange the difficulty by segments of the game
No waypoints & objectives make tracking progress hard
Reused models for corpses is a little silly
Map can be confusing and difficult to follow
Not optimized for gamepads

Well-told story, with excellent atmosphere.
Always maintaining an atmosphere of tension, in which survival depends on a lot of caution and preparation.
SHODAN remains an excellent villain.
Exploring is very fun.
It is very easy to get lost and not know what to do.
The parts of cyberspace are boring.

close to the original
A graphic design that is unique in its own way, yet pleasing to the eye, and does not appear to be exaggerated.
Harmonious soundtrack
The non-linear gameplay allows for a lot of freedom.
Cool antagonist
technically almost free of errors
Individual determination of possible difficulty.
Perfectly captured retro science-fiction vibrations.
strong story
Varied riddles and excursions into cyberspace.
Only partially set to music, therefore very focused on reading, but this is considered a revolutionary approach to the original.
Boring flashback
lack of landmarks / lack of orientation signs
Partially opaque tasks.
only one English voice output (German texts)
The opponents look visually similar and are rather obtuse.
Repetitive fights and explorations.
I love you.

The staging is exceptional and the story surprises as much as it hooks.
Grand artistic style, which is both original and faithful to the classical title.
Its soundtrack is catchy and allows for total immersion.
The gunplay is too rough and its mapping is as confusing as possible.
Dialogues and descriptions somewhat artificial.
Presents both graphic and technical issues.

The design of labyrinthine levels and the sensations it provokes.
What the game requires of the player: it is one of those titles that make us take notes.
It is very interesting to see in their raw state elements that have been the identity markers of modern video games.
The fight, the behavior of enemies, the shooting game.
Sometimes, it can be too complicated.
This can become repetitive in the last third of the adventure.

Its oppressive and terrifying atmosphere
SHODAN remains one of the best villains in video games.
At the technical level, there have been many improvements...
but the mix of styles did not completely convince me.
In the fight, this is where we notice the most that it is a game dating back several years.
Pipe puzzles and Cyberespace zones can become boring.
