More money can be obtained throughout each match by scoring kills or capturing an artifact. The online game play is addictive, and even with the dwindling online the community Shadowrun is still worth the play. Expand

    This feels like a low budget production but it does bring some very interesting twists to the shooter genre. Teleporting, gliders, growing trees that heal you and your allies, resurrections, and katanas. The graphics are dated but the game is surprisingly fun.

    Probably one of the most underrated games I reckon. A great game to play with many different ways of playing it depending on the characters and equipment used, as they all have their pros and cons. Only bad point of the game was the lack of DLC.

    It is a good game and all but without leaderboards it just feels incomplete. I wish Microsoft would just make it free to play. It is the perfect game to do it with.

Their are some games still going last time i played. Thats bc this was a really good MP game. whats better than being able to teleport with a katana? If multilayer is dead you can play against bots. I would like to say TY to this game was one of the best 30$ games i ever bought. I will never get rid of it. Expand

    This is a SOLID shooter.

  1. This is a great game. If you’re willing to abandon your preconceived notions as to what a Shadowrun game should be and simply accept it for what it is, you’ll find a deep and complex first-person shooter that is tons of fun and packed with variety.
  2. The biggest disappointment in this otherwise fairly enjoyable shooter is the lack of content once you've finally grasped the formula. There are only nine similar-looking maps to choose from, with more expected down the line via downloadable content.
  3. Shadowrun is a magnificent multiplayer adventure that is sure to keep you entertained for as long as you wish to play.
