Man I got so hyped when I saw the title...
Then I watched a preview and wanted to throw up. I thought this was gonna be a modern remake on the ridiculously bad ♥♥♥ first person shooter that felt like the craziest MOBA on earth. Teleporting through walls, stelaing people's souls, hang gliding while trying to aim a sniper rifle, throwing people into the sky or yanking them out of it, turning ethereal, bleeding people out with katanas.

DAMN YOU. ALL YOU HAD TO DO WAS REMAKE IT. IT WAS THE BEST FIRST PERSON SHOOTER OF ALL TIME.

(sarcasm warning)

Yeah, there's just not enough shooters out there....

Shadowrun was originally an RPG and many fans of it consider the shooter an abomination. Also, many were fans of the Sega Genesis or Supernintendo Shadowrun games( I preferred the Sega Genesis one...played it over and over). Shooting is just a part of the Shadowrun genre, it's the interaction with NPC's, shadowrunner levelling, and going throughout a dark world that many prefer.

I refused to buy that game from microsoft, they ruined it by making another random fps that are flooding the market. I only play one fps series and have no desire to play any others.

Apparently nobody is allowed to like both titles for what they were.

I know some who like both, I'm just not a FPS fan and wanted an actural rpg because shadowrun is an rpg, sound enough reasoning.

You can, but the OP just dogged this title because he likes the other. So people felt inclined to defend it.

Had a roommate once who actually liked the FPS. He wasn't a gamer, though (real gamers roll dice), so he had no experience with Shadowrun proper.

Nice use of in-game trigger logic.

Not exactly what I expected, I'll admit.

Yeah, it was a fairly decent shooter - would've been a lot better if FASA had survived long enough to put the rest of the game's content together - but what really hurt it was the crossover play between the PC and the 360.

I like FPS's, but I never played the Shadowrun FPS, because thats not what shadowrun was from the beginning. When I play a shadowrun game in modern times, I want the way it has always been with a bit of a modern twist, not a total different game genre with the shadowrun name on it.

I can't tell if we are being trolled or not. Is this guy serious? Are we taking him seriously? I feel like I am taking crazy pills.....

I dont like how most of the people trashing the FPS never played it. It was probably the best FPS of all time. Crazy customization. Map events that required ridiculous teamwork, and just plain fun.

It was probably the most engaging and creative FPS ever created yet people come on here saying "not sure if trolling" crap. Guess what buddy. I don't play FPS's at all. The only FPS i ever played for longer then 2 days was shadowrun and I would buy a 2nd shadowrun fps if it cost 200 bucks and a subscription charge. IT WAS THAT GOOD.

That game punished moving while shooting like it does in real life. And doing a headshot with a sniper rifle was damn near impossible. Shooting trolls made them skin harden so they could handle multiple shots better then most BUT they couldn't move normal speed if they hardened. Every class had a weakness and strength unique to them. Humans could have an extra technology. Dwarves could drain mana. JEEZ
