    This is a developer that understands and loves their source material, which very evidently comes out in their work. Consequently, Shadowrun: Dragonfall is another home run for the up-and-coming studio.

    A very good expansion that betters the original game in every aspect. It's great when developers listen to their fans and give them what they want.

    If you enjoyed your first taste of Shadowrun, then Dragonfall should be an immediate purchase.

    If you already liked Shadow Run Returns, this will give you a few very entertaining evenings well worth the price, even considering all the well done and ambitious mods for the main game.

    Shadowrun Returns: Dragonfall offers 12+ hours of fresh adventure in a new city, a sizable helping of new weapons and enemies, and a hub quest system which gives this expansion a leg up over its core campaign.

    An expansion that improves on almost every aspect of the original, fixing obvious flaws and adding a much greater sense of variety to what is now one of the best retro role-players around.

    Some inconsequences, e. g. in terms of AI and the short leash are annoying, but story and characters are very convincing.

    The best cyberpunk / fantasy game just got better.

    The best cyberpunk / fantasy game just got better.

    I'm not a great fan of downloadable content but I have to admit I enjoyed Dragonfall - even more than I enjoyed the original Shadowrun Returns campaign.

    The storytelling is better, mission choices more varied, and there are TONS more interaction and story behind your crew, etc. You could say it's what Shadowrun Returns should have been from the beginning, but then we wouldn't have the (still excellent) original campaign.

Now in Dragonfall, I love, hate and care about the deeply flawed characters on top of everything else. This is the best indie game experience I've had since, ever. Despite the bugs that are already being fixed in updates, Dragonfall is AWESOME. I want more expansions like Dragonfall. So very many more. ~sips a soykaf, while eying some real coffee on the shelf~

    ...and now back to Dragonfall...

    The campaign is great, the characters are deep (meaning compared to other CRPG games) and the game is a lot of fun. I especially like thatThe campaign is great, the characters are deep (meaning compared to other CRPG games) and the game is a lot of fun. I especially like that the game puts value in story and rewards for objectives as opposed to mindless shooting and endless looting and keeps a good amount of spells and weapons without beeing excessive. [no "lightning-ares predator IV-of doom with ExEx ammo +4 or other ridiculous stuff that litters most other games] Easy to learn gameplay that remains interesting. Only slighty negative point in this is the comparatively dull matrix-combat.

    The editor however is frustrating. After working myself through the wiki and tutorial videos, planning a little campaign and gettign started...and trying again...trying again ...trying to find mistakes step-by-step and finding the whole thing unexplainably not working after dozens of backup copies that in retrospect also didn´t work anymore...wasting around 2 weeks of valuable time I gave up. If you don´t plan on using the editor which is fine the game is great, if you are highly interested in making your own runs...you could learn a programming language instead or...any language actually with the same amount of time involved...play Dragonfall and make a bachelors degree on the side and leave the editor to people who are working in the gaming industry anyways.

    As buggy and broken as the "core" game. If only the editor provided what was promised MAYBE the blatant and shameful state of SR and itsAs buggy and broken as the "core" game. If only the editor provided what was promised MAYBE the blatant and shameful state of SR and its expansion would not be such an egregious betrayal of kickstarter backers and SR fans. The problems with the game as bone deep, the tools to fix the game are not provided within the editor.

    Which explains while as of now all user content with any ambition has been abandoned and what currently exists isnt worth the 35 seconds to download. Shame on you HBS shame.
