    Shadowrun Returns

    A nice enough little game to play while waiting for Wasteland 2

    I actually did not know so much about the first Shadowrun game that came back in the day, only that it had an fantasy futuristic theme and that it was not either Wasteland nor Fallout. This game will not get any prices... Read Full Review
