I just got the game through Humble Bundle and I had never played either of the games. Do i need to have played the first one to understand the story in the second one or can I just play it without losing out too much on the story?

Also, are there any mods you would recommend I play the game with, or should I play the game as it is and then get mods?

Thanks.

I don't think you need to play the first one. Not even sure if you can find it anywhere, it is a DOS game. They have a lot of graphics mods available if you want, make the game look decent.

No need for #1, and get the SHTUP texture mod. Optionally also get Rebirth for better models which unfortunately have stupid facial expressions. The game's great with or without the mods.
