Darnn: I haven't played SS1, but SS2 is fine. It was made in '99 (I think) by the same people who made Thief. The graphics are nice and purty (or purty enough) and the controls are a quite good.
I haven't gotten too far in it, but that's mostly due to lack of time.
The game has RPG elements in it as well as FPS. There are three character classes to choose from, and several sub-options available during character development. Classes aren't enforced beyond starting equipment & stats (AFAIK), and you can modify your character during play with modules you earn for completing tasks, or find hidden.
Ammunition supplies are sparse enough that going in guns blazing isn't always the best option. Weapons also degrade, although they can be repaired at a cost. This also means that although the zombies are carrying shotguns, they're not really worth picking up, especially since you have a limited inventory space (done is a style similar to Diablo, only also based on character strength).
If you get a chance to play this game, go for it.
Anyway, I thought the best part of LR2 was riding the snowmobile and running over endangered snow leopards. Heh heh heh.
Cthlulhu fhtagn that people would quit trying to wake him.
