enhanced genetic powers not so powerful
the only reason i gave this game an 8/10 is because im a fan of shooters but this is not really a hardcore shooter somebody wants. its not really interesting, no real plot or storyboard. in my opinion Gears2 or Halo 4 would be my personal story favorites. this game is just a no no for me.
No story at all. Pass up ASAP.
I do not see how others are giving this game rave reviews. Makes no sense. Although sound and graphics are ok, no story mode, and the multiplayer is just meh. I read the back of the box and believed I was getting a story, like the old book version of the game (any one remember that?) Bot matches and Unreal style gameplay do not make this a good game. Even the intro scene did not give any real gameplay background.
Oh the Perfection
I am constantly staying up all night playing this game online. I just find it so entertaining. I normally don't go for FPS games, but this one is an exception. It's difficult at first but when you get the hang of it, you won't be able to put your controller down.
Sadly, no more.
When I first played this game, I had a good time. It was with friends and we had a grand old time with it, but that's not why I am here. My scores are low for one reason and one reason alone. The servers for this game have been shut down. Online play no longer exists for this game so therefore this game is nothing more then a thing to take up space. This is a good game, but without the online component, it loses all worth.
AWSOME!!!!! A MUST HAVE
this game is a good game even though it was made a few years back, kinda hard to get used to set the layout before geting killed but still good even offline!
Good game for when you fill like shooting
Good game but the rating M is stupped becuse I know a game that is rated T but has blood, violence, harsh language, and drinking. All this game has is blood and violence.
Original & Wondrous!
Using strategy, teamwork, and good old fashion know-how fight the way to victory! Where did this awesome, original game come from?Based on the revered paper-and-pen RPG (and short run of game releases), this next-gen Shadowrun combines first-person shooter gameplay with the complications of the RPG series. In Shadowrun players vie for supremacy in an intense first-person shooter (FPS) experience that rewards cleverness, cunning and split-second improvisation through a unique combination of modern weapons, ancient magic and advanced technology. Up to 16 players can battle together across Xbox 360 and Windows Vista through the Xbox LIVE and Games for Windows -- LIVE gaming and entertainment network. This game truly is one of a kind and it is fun!
One of a Kind
Shadowrun, while an older game with low production budget, boasts superior online play comparable to today's hottest multiplayers. For those curious, Shadowrun can be compared to Counterstrike for similarities in weapon purchase and monetary earnings, but with a twist of magic and tech. (such as Teleport, Resurrect, or Glider)
Even the most veteran of action/shooter gamers will find themselves having to relearn combat techniques to prevail in Shadowrun.
counter strike with a twist
The day I purchased this game from my local Ebgames, and pluged Shadowrun into my terrified Xbox 360, I knew right then it was going to be awfull. After spending 30 min. on the the tutorial itself, I actually got around to playing the game, which in away reminded me of another game, which several people know as counter strike. The first objective in Shadowrun is to buy your weapons, instead of a simple unlock system, also when one dies the weapons are lost in the process, which leads to more frustration. I only scraped the crust off this pile of s**t the characters are also unbalanced, as the human being the weakest and the elf the better choice since the elf can regenerate health, and is the faster character, while the troll is the slowest but has good defense its easy to kill if one is playing as an elf, while the dwarf is completly worthless, because of its speed and lack of esense. I honestly would have ignored these facts previously mentioned if only Shadoerun had more than one game type, which is pretty much a glorified CTF. All in all "I'd rather have a buffulo take a diarea dump in my ear" quoted from the AVGN with much love StopMoss.... can you stop the Moss
this game is excellent for anyone who likes to play fps's that are different from the rest. The integration of magic and the choice of four different races is always changing up the game play. There is always changing stategies and techniques according to each player so the matches arent alwayys the exact same. There are no repetitve kill actions like in halo the infamous gun until you're close enough to melee, or in gears of war the shotgun and hope your connection is better than the other guy's so you get the kill. There is no camping in corners or rooms because magics eliminate that tacitic. the only down side i have experianced is no storyline. it gives a brief summery of what is suppose to be going on but there is no story other than training. i would not recomend this game unless you have a gold membership because playing agianst the game in a match could get boring really quik. the connection is excellent and gameplay is never gets boring.
