Can anyone get into a multiplayer match? I just beat all those long training sessions, but when I try to get into an online match it just searches forever.

There's probably no one online.  Or they shoulda put out a demo ahead of time to work out the networking kinks.

The reason that people might not be online right now is because there are a TON of people (like myself) who are waiting to get the game after someone credible gives it a review hehe.  I'm not going to spend money on the game if it sucks.  Hopin it doesn't though.

I'm just waiting for it to be in a store near me. It's 3 and a half hours to phoenix, I just can't justify a 7 hour drive to get a video game these days. I'd be spending more money on gas than the game...

There is no reviews for it anywhere because they did not send out review copies ahead of time, so that is prolly a good sign that the game sucks, I think they are just hoping that people will pick it up out of curiosity before bad reviews go up. And also no developers on the developing team anymore so who is gonna update the game and fix bugs and gameplay issues? no one.

There will be now that the game is out but usually companys send out a review copy about a week or so before the games release so that the review can be up the same day as the games release.

I was just speculating, i have no idea, the key word i used was prolly, if i was making a game and i knew it sucked but it had a little curiosity hype, I would not send out a review copy to the press a week early, I would just send the game out to shelves and hope some fools would buy it before bad reviews go up and slows down sells.

 No, you said no developers.  You said it probably sucked, but you didn't give any probably to the lack of developers and updates/bug fixes.

Any user review written this early is guaranteed to be faulty in at least some aspects. There is no way they have had enough play time, both offline with bots and online with both 360 and PC users, to have a fair idea of what the game is like. Therefore, the user will give it a very high review if they like it, or a very low review if they hate it. This is the "honeymoon" stage of a game's release where everything about the game is awesome.

I'm waiting for professional reviews, or at least user reviews written with more game experience (say, the next few days) before making my choice. If this game sucks, Forza 2 gets my money.

Are you seroius dude, the rumor that FASA disbanded was just that a rumor. And if you did ur friggen research, like for example go to the shadowrun site and go to the irc chat that the devs held yesturday maybe youll get some sense. Not only are they not disbanded they are also working on new additions to the game such as addition of single player split screen, new race "orcs" and more weapons and magic. SO plz dont talk.

Wow...

I OFFICIAL GOT OWNED...

I was hating on this game and had LOW expectations to say the least, but after playing it alot today, i have to say that I am VERY VERY impressed.

 

POSITIVES:

- Great new original gameplay with all the RPG/spell elements in it

- The differnt characters and what not are pretty cool to

- I enjoy the guns in the game to

- The game modes are also very addicting

- Did i mention the RPG element to a FPS game? I LOVE IT!

- The best TUTORIALS in any game ive ever played... they are really good. 

 

NEGATIVES:

- Average graphcis to say the least

- Now singleplayer (although i dont care AT ALL anymore, after spending most of today on xbox live.

 

Overall, this is the most surprising game so far on the 360, i thought this game would be terrible but its alot of fun!

I finally have been getting into online matches and i must say this game is awesome! The only problem I have with it is the limited choice of weapons, besides that its awesome. IMO.

lol.  PC players need to have windows vista to play this game, AND have Vista Live or whatever it is.  So Vista, a new

set up, which sucks for gaming because it's so new and the drivers suck for gaming, so THAT severely limits the amount

of PC players.

 

Stack that on top of the fact that many console gamers either can't find a copy, or are waiting for some kind of a review,

and it's perfectly understandable to see why practically no one would be online....idiot.

Because im sure two people in the world have Windows Vista and Xbox 360.

Your trying to explain to me that no one in the world was online at the same time yet this board is flooded with Shadowrun topics?

Topics?  topics?  Topics can be about ANYTHING!!!  Of course this guy isn't the only person online.  I'm saying there are

likely very, very few people online for it, ESPECIALLY considering this game has NO HYPE!!!  Gamers who post on 

message boards like this are like, the only ones who know about this game.  This isn't Halo, this is no AAA game.

This is a game that has had practically zero publicity until the day it was released, with a demo that won't come out

until a week after the game has launched.  I'm saying with very few people, it might explain why it was taking so long

to get a match going, unless you can play 1 on 1 matches or something.

i normally gotta wait for no more than two minutes to get into a match. but once you are in a match the games go on and on which is good.
