    Might not offer something particularly new and exciting to the genre, but fans of Shadowrun universe will find enough here to enjoy. It’s a good tactical turn-based game, especially if you play together with other players.

    Current lag issues notwithstanding, I would recommend Shadowrun Chronicles to anyone who enjoys the Shadowrun universe and enjoys turn-based strategy games. If you liked Shadowrun Returns, you'll probably also enjoy Chronicles, although you won't find the same depth of story just yet. The developers at Cliffhanger promise much more story that will be molded by the players as time goes on.

    Shadowrun Chronicles features 4 players co-op turn based combat and that's something. Unfortunately the game feels incomplete and it's actually flawed by huge latency problems.

    Turn based strategy on a Sci-fi universe that manages to entertain if playing online. Otherwise, this game is another missed opportunity for the Shadowun Universe.

    Shadowrun Chronicles Boston Lockdown is an online tactical RPG marred with quite many issues. Still its gameplay idea is solid and the multiplayer mode could be quite a joyous experience. Given enough time to devs to solve its issues it could reach unexpected heights.

    At only $32.99, I’d say Boston Lockdown is worth the money if the lag is fixed but leaves much to be desired for any die-hard fans of the tabletop game.

    Shadowrun Chronicles isn't just a bad Shadowrun game. It's a bad game. That it comes from a series with such an exceptional pedigree and plenty of exceptional recent successes just makes the disappointment that much more bitter.

    Nuff said - it's Shadowrun and it feels good. Nice turn based game with a lot of charakter options. I really like the co-op mode and the feeling you get when you are on a run.
    I'm very curious what we will see ingame on new stuff now that the game is released.
    Not too complicated good for beginners and well balanced for people who are not that familiar with the Shadowrun pen & paper ruleset.

    The game actually still in the body building phase. The developers are adding stuff and even against all odds they are making it happen.
    The game is not any true to Shadowrun PnP, let's be honest, its very generic.
    The good is, at least the developers hear the community and looks like they pretend to convert the current game into a more true to 5th edition pnp product. We hope so.

    GAME SUCKS. Turned based, Really? What where they thinking. Who approved some idiots idea to do this? With skill tree to instead of stats? OMGGAME SUCKS. Turned based, Really? What where they thinking. Who approved some idiots idea to do this? With skill tree to instead of stats? OMG enough with the retarded people creating games. This is why STEAM owns it now, they always buy up FAILED GAMES. They took Shadowrun and crapped all over it. Expand
