Let me first start off by saying, before this game came out I only had vaguely heard of Shadowrun, but knew nothing about it. I have never played the pen...

Magic and guns is an awesome combo ; Visually impressive in places

Not enough maps ; Matchmaking needs a patch….badly

Shadowrun Review

 

When it was first announced that PC gamers and Xbox 360 owners would have the chance to battle it out on the same game on the same servers many people in the industry were very skeptical. The idea that the match would even be fun let alone skilled were...

Think of tech like accessories in other FPS games, abilities such as seeing through walls, lock-on to opponents, and many more. This was one of the most intuitive features in Shadowrun because it really pushes the envelope as to how much stuff you can...

What do you get when you mix RPG elements into an FPS? If you guessed trolls wielding miniguns, you'd be exactly right. Fasa Studio set out to put a new spin on the FPS genre, and they did just that. The combination of mythical races, magic powers, and...

If you're a big FPS fan, and don't mind the lack of a campaign, then Shadowrun will be right up your alley. The rpg elements work surprisingly well and are very refreshing. Even after getting the full 1,000, I find myself going back again and again.

I have been reading the various reviews on Shadowrun and have found them lacking. By reading the reviews it becomes apparent that the reviewers spent little to no time playing the game to give an accurate review. I have spent hours playing this game...

Where it is true that the graphics are not as good as Gears Of War, they are good enough to be next-gen, but not by much. The character models are done very well, but it would have been nice to have the ability to customize the way each of your...

Shadowrun has gone through a veritable roller-coaster of opinions and hype since the day it was announced with most of gamers' issues focused around what the game was not - an RPG. Now that it's here and getting good playing time from us 360 owners,...

Different people want different things when it comes to gaming, and sometimes not everyone can be satisfied. As an art form, videogames are grounds for artistic expression, and as Hideo Kojima boldly demonstrated with the release of Metal Gear Solid 2,...

Some truly inspired concepts and game mechanics with the potential to truly bring something new to the FPS genre

Unimpressive graphics ; No campaign mode or any attempt at making a worthwhile single-player experience ; Extremely limited list of features and game modes ; Too few maps ; 60 is about $40 too much for what’s being offered here ; It’s also $10 more...

Shadowrun doesn’t just trample on the memories of the classic RPGs many people fondly remember. It’s a sham and a rip-off, especially on the Xbox 360. If you absolutely must buy this game, buy it on the PC. Better yet, don’t buy it at all, at least not...

Xbox 360 gamers looking for a new team-based arena shooter to whittle away the wait for Halo 3, just keep whittling. Better still, get outside. Run from the shadows. It's summer. Dweeb.

It's no coincidence that Microsoft Games Studio's new Shadow run has been released simultaneously for both PC (Windows Vista required) and Xbox 360. The game's key feature is its cross-platform multiplayer compatibility, where Xbox 360 players can go...

In this era of me-too first-person shooters that use the same weapons, the same modes and the same basic structure, Shadowrun strives to be a breath of fresh air. With its unique character classes, cool tech and game-changing magic, Shadowrun is an...

While Shadowrun is full of great ideas, the limited scope of the online mode (its only mode) brings it down. For $60 it's hard to accept only nine maps and two game modes, no matter how good they are!

When it comes to the cyberpunk genre there is nothing as sacred among the gaming community as Shadowrun. The series may have gotten its start as a traditional role-playing game but in 1993 Beam Software and Date East revolutionized the franchise by...

The structure of this game works off of a solid build and though it's entirely different from anything with the Shadowrun name attached, it holds its own. The flaws seem to stem from a lack of development time or defined polish. Perhaps the developers...
