A great and nostalgic homage to a deep and vibrant fantasy world.
What was the down side for me? There is no voice acting in the game. I can get over this fact but it does wind back the clock for me to the '80's. The writing is tight, and the main story line interesting. The plot is also straight out of the novels which makes the game very accessible for fans. But the lack of voice really hurts the game for me. I felt it made the story slow down and was less engaging. And as a person who reads a novel a week, it has nothing to do with reading. It was the simple lack of connection to many character.
It is important to note that this game was developed for less with funding through Kickstarter. The game literally is a swan song for fans of the Shadowrun RPG. As a fan, this is a great game. I also feel that the game engine and level creator are the real purchase and the main story simply a demo for the tools potential. If you don't know the RPG and have not been playing computer games for the last three decades your entertainment mileage may vary.
