5.0 out of 5 stars what the hell happenned to part 2!? March 18, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Rating--92 out of 100--

A niche title in every sense of the word, Shadowrun received mild praise when it was first released for the Super Nintendo years ago. However, as the game is based on a role playing game, much like Dungeons and Dragons, it has built a strong fan base over the years. Those who can remember playing this game, can easily be brought back to its seamless world which some might overlook and just brush off to the side. The idea for the Matrix movies obvioussly extends from this Role Playing series as the game centers around your character, who wakes up after seemingly being dead, to continue his search for vengeance against the ones who killed him.

The gameplay is very straightforward in termsof shooting, as when you press the fire button a crosshair appears on the screen and allows you to shoot anywhere in the range of the screen. As you progress forward into the game your character builds up Karma points that can then be used to raise his strength, health, weapon, or magic skills. While the shooting is a bit harrdto get used to, and the game offers a steep learning curve, as the difficulty in this game is pretty tough, the storyline itself easily makes up for it and drives you toward the end of the game as you search for the awnsers leading to your demise.

As you fight your way through the game you will get new weapons, get new skills that allow you to hack into the matrix better, as well as recruit other shadowrunners as well to help you along your quest. You fight several bosses along the way, and the game never fails to impress with its startling revelations hour after hour. Overall an excellent game, with well done music as well, although some of the songs ae repeated numerous times (this was SNES you know), but this does not take away from this fine gaming experience. But yeah what the hell did happen to part 2 though?

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly Overlooked June 30, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Shadowrun is probally one of the most highly overlooked games ever made. I myself picked it up in a junk discount bin 15 years ago for $10 and purchased it thinking it was a medieval RPG, only to find after I got it home that it was on the total opposite spectrum of the human timeline, for the story takes its player into the future, in 2050.

The basic premise of Shadowrun focuses around its hero, Jake, who wakes up on a morgue slab without any memory of who he is. Throughout the game you piece together who Jake is, while at the same time discovering what the world of 2050 looks and feels like. You accomplish this through dialogue with various other characters who feed you small bits of information at a time, as well as key words that act as clues to be used with other characters who in turn divulge more information when prompted. As Jake proceeds in the game, the story unfolds which in turn leads him to investigate new places and both meet and fight new people.

As Jake, you navigate through the city as freely as you like, deciding when and where to go. This freedom to move is both beneficial and detrimental, because while allowing you unlimited movement, it can also bog you down when you are stuck at a certain place, wandering sometimes aimlessly in search of a door you may have missed, or a person unspoken to.

You also will be forced to fight various bad-guys, some of whom are nothing more than street thugs, others big bosses who take some grit to defeat. To achieve this, Jake can be equipped with a myriad of weapons ranging in strengths and firing speeds, protective armor, and eventually, magical spells. As Jake advances in the game, more and better items are made available for use.

Jake also improves with age in the game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well-Made Despite Some Bugs. November 4, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Shadowrun, created in 1993, is mix between The Blade Runner and The Matrix movies (I hate them all) and makes for a unique role-playing game. While fun to play, it is one of the easiest games I've played in my life. It's so easy that the final stages are quite trivial. Even the ending was pretty sucky and anticlimactic at best. I think the reason for the decreased difficulty is due to the numerous bugs of the game. If you stood in a certain position, you are able to off the enemy without being inflicted of damage by guns. You are able to build up karma so quickly in the beginning that you can be nearly invincible for the rest of the game, thus a lot of labor in that process rather than just following a linear type of game play. You can infinitely make lots of nuyen and karma through a couple of simple tricks. One is using a rubber band on the A button on the ghouls with a Uzi while standing behind a coffin in the basement of Dark Blade's mansion for hours. Another is going through Bremerton portal and going to Dark Blade to kill the vampire and get 5,000 nuyen every time in a cycle. Third one is the Gold Naga trick where you can come from behind him and killing it for 6 to 7 karma each time and going back and forth without picking up the Serpent Scales. It may sound boring due to the bugs, but Shadowrun is actually fun to play. Despite the intentions of the game, I hardly used any of the magic spells except for the Heal (which was the biggest reason why I won so easily), and I never hired a Shadowrunner. All in all, Shadowrun has its shortcomings, but it's well worth playing and could have been a bit improved for a much better playing experience.
