  Monroe Technical Support - Suspension System Fundamentals
Shocks and struts help control how fast the springs and suspension are allowed to move, which is important in keeping tires in firm contact with the road.
If the struts or shock absorbers are worn and the vehicle meets a bump in the road, the vehicle will bounce at the frequency of the suspension until the energy of the bump is used up.
Struts and shock absorbers that are in good condition will allow the suspension to oscillate through one or two diminishing cycles, limiting or damping excessive movement, and maintaining vertical loads placed upon the tires.

 IGN: System Shock 2 Review
Their latest foray into the first-person shooter world, System Shock 2, is an amazingly well crafted example of the genre that combines raw action with horror and suspense to deliver a gameplay experience that is very different from anything else on the shelves.
System Shock 2 takes place in the same game world as the original title, a universe in which the Earth has already reached out and colonized the solar system.
There aren't really all that many standard weapons available in System Shock 2 as compared to most first person shooters, but the ones that are there are very useful and each have their own strengths and weaknesses.

After all, the shock wave -- called the "bow shock," like the ripple of water raised by a boat's bow as it moves through the water -- is the solar system's protective womb, and we'd like to know more about it.
The solar particles at the edge of the heliosphere form the bow shock, which acts as a barrier to deflect incoming cosmic rays that are up to a million times more energetic than the solar wind.
The termination shock is a region where the solar wind first feels the interstellar medium, dropping its speed from several hundred kilometers per second to less than half that.

Second, because of the handy built-in log system, you always know what you're supposed to be doing (even if you're not sure where or how!).

System Shock II was a sequel that came out of nowhere and hit the gaming community like a bolt of lightning.
With this criteria in mind, System Shock 2 is easily my favorite game of all time, and I would argue for it to be the best game of all time.

 System Shock 2 review
Around the time of doom, there was a game called “System Shock”, and although no hard-core have forgotten it, it seem to have only lain in the shadow of the aforementioned giant we know as “doom”.
Lastly, psi-soldiers are using their “Psionic” powers as a weapon, and I suppose this is System Shock 2’s response on magic in other games, as they do not rely on usual firearms.
In System Shock, the story was a very big part of the game, and this has followed into the sequel, as it has a story in a time when action games build more on action and less on the “epic” experience of a game.

When you first enter a new game in System Shock, it takes you about 15-20 minutes to generate a character and to get into the actual gameplay.

Shock's hardcore science fiction storyline was fascinating, and never before had a first-person game attempted to tell such an ambitious story.
System Shock 2 continued this tradition with one of the more terrifying games ever made, but I think many gamers were put off by the horribly ugly character models and the fact that enemies kept respawning, meaning you were never really safe.

Notwithstanding a few differences, the interface is similar for the most parts to the interface used in the original System Shock (such as marking active items with brackets instead of highlighting them and showing the remaining hit points of your enemies with colored bars above their brackets).
In addition, the ship decks appear to be too big to be loaded in its entirety into the computer’s system memory, so that bulkhead doors are artificially placed within the game environment to denote new areas which then need to be loaded whenever they are entered.
Despite the complex interface and the convoluted storytelling, System Shock 2 is still a worthy sequel to System Shock.
