What Gamespot Users have to say about Shadowrun

    A very revolutionary game for its time.

    Rated on October 06, 2009 by zornundo

    I still can't believe they made a Genesis and an SNES version of Shadowrun, with both games being wildly different from each other. I rented each, certainly more than once each, when they came out. I ...

    Have you ever been in a game that had it all, but still felt like it was missing something huge?

    Rated on June 27, 2007 by majorpain10000

    Shadowrun, is a great game no doubt, but it lacks so much. The graphics are terrible like a cheap nickelodeon cartoon. I have seen Gameboy pocket games that could hold better graphics with a 6 bit eng...

    Computers, magic, guns, bounty hunting? All in one game? Great game. Worth having a Genesis. Need to remake THIS version

    When a game not only entertains you but also educate you without you knowing it, I think that this was a game that's worth looking at. It's one of the few reasons I keep my Genesis. I've heard about t...

    jump on ebay right now and buy a genesis and this cart. You need this game. Long before GTA was pushing the non-linear-storyline envelope, this RPG had the fully explorable city thing already goin...

    My favorite 16-bit game.

    Rated on October 13, 2007 by jasondabold

    Just a pre-cursor to my short review. I'm a bit biased when it comes to 16-bit. I didn't own a Super Nintendo until much much later in life. I played a little of that version of the game and I still t...

    This game sucks so much you'd think it was a lemon.

    Rated on January 05, 2007 by Boostinsane

    Wow. This game, Shadowrun, is not only unbelivebly confusing, it's also a complete waste of time and money. The game is so difficult and annoying. I gave up on this game after the first stage, man. By...

    For an old-school Gen game, this is an excelent choice for an RPG.

    Rated on November 19, 2005 by spiketyrrell

    This is a very good RPG for people who prefer to play on an old school system. If you are a gamer that has love for games both old and new this game is a pleasure to play. You get to choose from...

    Just plain cool on so many levels.

    Rated on September 10, 2010 by Crush_Project

    This game was lengthy, had depth, was true to the game they took it from (which was the sickest rpg ever conceived after cyberpunk which was the pen and paper game that got banned), each class was ver...

    The best futuristic RPG known to man.

    Rated on April 21, 2006 by ghangiskhan1

    Shadowrun is a game few have really heard of. It is on both Snes, and Genesis. The game was released in 1993. It is a very good game, in fact one of the best on Sega Genesis. Shadowrun is a futuristic...
