Ancient magic co-exists with deadly high-tech weaponry - Purchase advanced technology and magic each round in an extraordinary arms race

Amazon.com

FASA Studio, the creative minds behind MechWarrior and Crimson Skies, are back with Shadowrun, the new multiplayer first-person shooter (FPS) based on the much-beloved role-playing game (RPG) franchise. Shadowrun propels team-based combat into a new dimension with a revolutionary blend of modern weaponry and ancient magic. Up to 16 players can battle for control of this new world through Xbox 360-to-Windows Vista online compatibility. In Shadowrun players vie for supremacy in a constantly evolving battlefield where advanced technology and ancient magic provide an unprecedented and high-velocity tactical action experience.

Features:

  • Rich legacy brought to life. After a 5,000-year absence, magic has returned to the world of 2021, and global corporate might battles a relentless ancient order to harness this reawakened power. Be a part of the RNA, a global megacorporation, and bring order (and profit) to a world of chaos. Or join the Lineage to keep magic wild and free at all costs. Choose a side and wage war for the future of magic in the new world of Shadowrun.
  • Bending reality and changing the rules of combat. Dive into a universe where ancient magic co-exists with deadly weaponry, and experience a revolution in multiplayer FPS gaming. Purchase advanced technology and magic for each round in an extraordinary arms race to improve your abilities and open new tactics for your team. Use your cybernetic eye to spot your enemy through walls, teleport behind your opponents in the blink of an eye, trigger a hologram as a distraction, and cut them down with a burst from your rifle to clear the room before they even know you are there.
  • Intense cross-platform multiplayer action. For the first time ever, Xbox 360 and Windows Vista gamers can compete as a team or as foes. Experience a quantum leap in interactivity as console and Windows Vista-based PC gamers battle for supremacy online via Windows Vista and the Xbox Live® service. While Shadowrun gamers will battle endlessly for the right to be crowned the last man standing, they will also struggle to answer the question of which is the more-efficient killer: a Windows®-based PC or Xbox 360. Through the unprecedented cross-platform functionality, up to 16 gamers using both a Windows-based PC and the Xbox 360 console will participate together in the ultimate multiplayer frag-fest. Don’t be sidelined onto one platform: Control your own destiny and play on the console or the PC.
  • Classic races reinterpreted for a new world. Experience the thrill of combat as magic reawakens creatures of legend. Humans are joined by elves, dwarves and trolls in a battle for supremacy among soaring corporate towers and an ancient ziggurat of power. Strike a balance on your team with races possessing unique abilities that complement your weapons and tactics.
  • The ultimate online (and offline) battlefield. Fight against or alongside AI teammates or join up with friends against all comers via System Link, Split-screen, LAN and Xbox Live. Fill out your team with incredible AI characters that respond to each tactical situation and provide an unparalleled team experience. Train offline with the robust AI, or play through a host of minigames cooperatively online with your friends as you master the magic and technology of Shadowrun.

The regular game has no overarching storyline and quickly becomes boring - however, it is a lot of fun on xbox live. Great graphics and fun weapons & spells make this a good first person shooter alternative to Halo3.

I got this game for the Xbox 360 this time around after losing my game for the PC. I wanted to get the last few achievements for my 100% on the game and eventually did after a month of playing again. But if you are a new player, sorry to say but you missed out on a great game. Very unique FPS that still has a very passionate but small community. Too bad the game didn't sell better and release some DLC maps, more abilities and weapons.

Yes people are playing this game, I regularly found several matches anytime of day I checked. But they are usually the same group of players who are in parties or are very good at the game. I am decent, but after not playing for a few years I had to work hard to catch up to their skill level. For me it was worth revisiting a game I enjoyed. Not sure about you.

For those who don't know this game is online only, outside of some tutorials and bot matches. Neither of which is worth you time.

This is all about the multiplayer and one of the very few system link games which allows you and your friends to go against or with bots. My friends and I like to play against each other in the same room rather than go on live. The system link allows for good lag free play. The arenas are varied and some have really nice look. The weapons and "magic" and "tech" abilities also allow for a variety of tactics. You can easily get bored quickly playing alone, but considering the price there is some fun play here if you put in the time to learn the abilities. For the particular purpose of system link play among friends, I would give it four stars considering the price at this point, but give it three stars because of the lack of overall value.

Most of what folks are posting here is true... There is not single player mode (other than playing "Solo" matches against bots and the training "missions"). There are 9 maps and 3 game types.

I don't quite understand the frustration people are having over getting the game home to realize there is not single player mode, though. It has been widely reported for months (since the game was announced) that this would be a multiplayer only game. You should always research a game prior to purchasing it.

I find the game quite fun, and entertaining. I am a huge fan of the original pen and paper version of Shadowrun, and while this game does not stick terribly close to some of the "rules" of that version, it does an admirable job of presenting what I think of as a small slice of the Shadowrun world and mythos.

I am a FPS junkie, and this game does a lot to keep me interested. I really like the options I have on how to equip my character with the different spells, tech, and weapons. It is amazingly cool to be able to glide into the air teleport through a wall, take perch on top of a statue, and snipe the opposing team. Then I glide off my perch, back through the wall, and escape before they can retaliate. Or, even better, when under fire summon a minion to attack my foe as a distraction while I teleport in behind them to take them out from behind.

I like the ability to purchase new items between rounds. To me this seems fresh and new, but apparently that is because I did not play Counterstrike. Also, this serves to heighten the intensity from round to round, since each character is buying and employing new/stronger abilities each round.

Because the game is round and objective based it does require teamwork.

Shadowrun for the 360 DOES NOT FOLLOW the snes pen and paper RPG format. It is an innovative FPS, that takes magic spells, tech upgrades, and races that force you to work as a team in a collective effort to take down the opposing team.

If you are a fan of a good FPS, this is a must have for your collection. All tech, and all magic have a counter the other team can use against you. Most games lack good balance, everyone will rush to get the weapon they want, and once you get these weapons, you are unstoppable. With shadowrun, prior to each round, you BUY your tech, magic, and weapons. You earn money based on damage done, teamwork, and capture. The better you do, the more you can buy.

Anytime I get myself into a new FPS, once i get bored with it, I end back playing shadowrun again. I bought this game at release, so I spend $60.00 on it and it was worth every penny. Now with the prices so low, it is definitely a game that any person into a good competitive FPS should own.

All the negative reviews talk about the lack of a single player campaign, but in reality MOST people put way more hours into the multiplayer than the single player.

Also, the negative reviews are incomplete. They bash the game because "you only have three slots, but 20 tech and magic." These statements are all false, within the game there is an option called "quick cast" which allows you to use some tech and most of your magic without assigning them to the slots.
