Excellent! Extremely good Rpg for a bargain price if you look well.
-story is complete, has everything it needs, you don't feel like you needed earlier introductions (it eases you into the setting too), more developement or different ending (even though there are some), and you get involved in it whichever ethic your character chooses (greed, honour, neutrality, duty, desire to fight, etc.)
-dialogues and characters are extremely well written, both likeable and with flaws, developing, witty, top notch. The fact that they are not voiced even adds to their image (as long as you have the little bit of imagination)
-there are some ways to get out of every situation provided you have the items or skills
-the combat system is solid and fair, and the power of your characters to enemies is well balanced
-the cyberpunk noir setting is perfect, and it does justice to the shadowrun lore
-environments are extremely well drawn and represent whichever area you enter well
-RPG options, skills, character improvement is really well done and let's you create whoever you want inside the lore and story brackets
-the game is rather linear, you work in areas, but you only get to go to the one game wants you to go once you are done
-the combat system may feel simplistic if you use barebones characters
-the UI leaves a lot to be desired and is fit rather to touch screens than PCs
-no camera rotation
-the character models are rather lowres and the models are crude, but have a lot of details to their outfits
-the game is rather short, I have packed 8,4 hours on it, but I played only on normal difficulty
The game gave me an enormous appetite and made me kickstart the third iteration- Hong Kong, and the Dragonfall sequel landed on first place in my wishlist.
