    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.

    SCORE: 10/10 ( and I am picky about my reviews and will often give amazing games around 9.0-9.5 due to minor issues). This game justSCORE: 10/10 ( and I am picky about my reviews and will often give amazing games around 9.0-9.5 due to minor issues). This game just transcends even otherwise stellar games due to it's flawless combination of turn-based strategy and RPG elements in a world that is gritty, believable, and engaging.

    If X-COM and Fire Emblem had a baby in the Matrix, this would be it. Shadowrun Dragonfall is even better than Shadowrun Returns, both of which are just a breath of fresh air in the RPG and turn-based strategy worlds.

    This has all the turn-based goodness of X-COM and FIre Emblem, but all the RPG mastery of Divinity Original Sin and the best of Dragon Age.

    The story is truly exciting. But the WRITING ITSELF IS PHENOMENAL. It is as good as the best sci-fi novel, with details and scene setting that takes your mind to details that the already superb graphics don't.

    I have already backed Shadowrun: Hong Kong and look forward to whatever this studio tries to do. But they have pretty much combined my two favorite genres into a perfect game. Just make sure to get the Director's Cut.

There's more of everything, multiple dialogue choices according your skills and teamates as well . Level design is way better, and finally a save system was implemented.
    I cant wait for the next campaign now .

This is the game for you. Between the beautiful settings and the first-rate story, there is a lot to like. It is a rare game that manages to capture the essence of a genre, but Dragonfall pulls off cyberpunk flawlessly. Highly recommend. Expand

    While Dragonfall is just a more of the same of the original game, it improves it in every single way.

You can now save everywhere and can upgrade cybernetic implants, for example.
    The story is also good (not many twists on it tho), but I liked the original one better.
    On the "con" side, the keybinds aren't redefinable, which is something really dumb for a 2014 game, but it's not a big deal in this game.
    Definitely a very good expansion if you liked Shadowrun.

    Preface: I haven't played any custom campaigns, which might (probably?) be a huge part of the entire game's package.

    Good about the game in main story: I love the cyberpunk twist on high fantasy themes, the mood and environment is really enjoyable, and the writing is good (which is vital since a LOT of the game is reading dialogue).

    The bad: Having just finished playing the recent XCOM, the battle mechanics are very lacking. Trying to guess how the line of sight works in any given situation is awful. The controls are super clunky and on top of that you aren't even told the key binds in game, making matters a lot worse if you don't look them up. The battles picked up in how interesting they were towards the end of the game when you earn an extra action point. The problem there is that the game ends shortly afterwards! Also, there are NO new spells. It's the same old from the base game in that regard.

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.
