Yes you could save anywhere. Games back then had unlimited saves.
Also, you did NOT have a time limit on the easy and normal difficulty levels. ONLY on hard difficulty (and the one above hard) was there a time limit (7 hours).
Obviously, this wasn't intended for new players.
I also don't remember if this time limit could be extended by hacking.
Pretty sure the highest difficulty level removed respawning, so it was time limit and no chambers.
Did you ever play on that difficulty setting? I never did.
I seem to remember the original System Shock had a lot more voice acting than any FPS game to that point.
