    Dragonfall is worth any RPG fan's time and $15 unless, I don't know, they don't like cyberpunk, dragons, or exceptional tactical combat.

    A world that demands your attention, Shadowrun endures long after the finale.

    Shadowrun Returns: Dragonfall- Director’s Cut is the best available version of an already great game.

    If you’re new to Shadowrun Returns, skip the initial release and start with Dragonfall Director’s Cut. Nearly every aspect of the Dragonfall campaign is superior to Dead Man’s Switch, and there’s far more to be excited about than afraid of.

    Shadowrun: Dragonfall has excellent writing which supports the whole shebang beautifully, but its sub-par tactical gameplay holds it back once the bullets and blades start flying.

The most engrossing story-line, characters you actually care about, A+ grade writing, and enjoyable (if never too hard) X-Com style fighting.
    I like any kind of game, not a genre specific type, and this game just floats to the top of the pile as a once in a decade great!
    I loved the graphics too, beautiful hand drawn style all maxed out in my fancy dan GFX card. (full HD at 8x just makes it look so silky!)
    Seriously, I am not being particularly cogent here, but I just wanted to tell the world (you, yes you!) that this game is worth every second of the 20-30 hours it will take you to complete.

    Plenty of choices & decisions to make in almost everything; and they actually matter in the game. I am pleasantly surprised by this game.Plenty of choices & decisions to make in almost everything; and they actually matter in the game. I am pleasantly surprised by this game.

    The plot is very thick, and twists are aplenty. The characters have personality. Overall, the writing could easily surpass many A++ RPG titles out there.

    Sure, the combat is a bit clunky, the graphics are simplistic, but Dragonfall succeeds in what matters most in RPGs.

    This **** fckin rocks. Old style TRPG with deep storyline with X-com battle ..
    All texts in this game show great deal of devotion into the story. I can smell blood of the writers from them.
    Battle system isn't new, yes but OST, story, making your character are just perfect in my perspective.
    This game punched me in the face lol

"random system". In some places, it was wildly stupid that it reached absurdities like “someone is right next to a shotgun with a chance of 80% to kill him — both shots misses.” Or "I'm a sniper at my own distance - a 56% chance of hitting and ... 2 out of 3 misses." And no, there were no debuffs on accuracy. Or you are close to the enemy with a chance of 84% of hit and all 3 shots are a miss ... no seriously, how interesting this game is, it’s so f**ing bad in a hit system with that randoms. Expand

HOW CAN A TRPG NOT HAVE THE OPTION TO ROTATE THE CAMERA OR UNDO A MOVEMENT?? FFT on the PS1 was easier to navigate than this broken mess. Depressing. Expand
