Acerca de este juego

MAN MEETS MAGIC & MACHINE. The year is 2054. Magic has returned to the world, awakening powerful creatures of myth and legend. Technology merges with flesh and consciousness. Elves, trolls, orks and dwarves walk among us, while ruthless corporations bleed the world dry. You are a shadowrunner - a mercenary living on the fringes of society, in the shadows of massive corporate arcologies, surviving day-by-day on skill and instinct alone. When the powerful or the desperate need a job done, you get it done... by any means necessary.

In the urban sprawl of the Seattle metroplex, the search for a mysterious killer sets you on a trail that leads from the darkest slums to the city’s most powerful megacorps. You will need to tread carefully, enlist the aid of other runners, and master powerful forces of technology and magic in order to emerge from the shadows of Seattle unscathed.

The unique cyberpunk-meets-fantasy world of Shadowrun has gained a huge cult following since its creation nearly 25 years ago. Now, creator Jordan Weisman returns to the world of Shadowrun, modernizing this classic game setting as a single player, turn-based tactical RPG.

Key Features

  • Gripping Tactical Combat: When you’re running the shadows, every turn matters. Choose your actions wisely - move to better cover, charge into melee, or lob a fireball into a crowd of enemies. With the variety of weapons and spells at your disposal, every turn is filled with meaningful choices. A successful run requires commanding a team of runners with the right balance of combat, tech, and magical abilities.
  • Skill-Based Character Progression: Choose a starting character archetype and build from there! Street Samurai and Physical Adepts use advanced combat skills to dominate the battlefield, Shamans and Mages summon powerful allies and cast deadly spells, while Riggers and Deckers provide critical technological support, projecting their consciousness directly into drones and computer systems. Shadowrun Returns’ classless skill system allows you to grow your character in any direction you choose. Want to start summoning spirits as an ork Shaman and evolve into a cybered-up weapon specialist? Do it!
  • Engaging 2D/3D Art Style: Shadowrun Returns mixes dynamic 3D characters and lighting with a vibrant, hand-painted environment. Illustrated character portraits bring every conversation to life. Explore a world filled with detail, from the slums of the Redmond Barrens to the extravagant offices of powerful corporations.

Got this in the bundle due to the sale.

At first, it's very interesting and immersive - there's a lot of room to mess around and play like you want. As the story drags on, however, it becomes more linear, less interesting, and incredibly repetitive. The final run was tedious and required no thought, and none of my final decisions or demeanor ingame really seemed to matter.

I have not played any of the other games in the series, or the fanmade modules for this game, but I do not recommend this game at full price. Hopefully Dragonfall and Hong Kong will be better.

Hace muy poco rejugue este juego... Las mecánicas y las gráficas son impecables, sistema muy sencillo pero complejo y muy táctico... La dificultad no es muy elevada por lo demás... No he probado los niveles creados por usuarios pero da un mundo de posibilidades para crear nuevas historias... En general si te gusta la estrategia este es un juego que te va a tomar tiempo y algunas frustraciones... Lo que si no disfrute mucha la rejugabilidad... lamentablemente la historia no da para tomar otras decisiones, solo factores pequeños como otras habilidades y otras rutas, pero básicamente es el mismo juego 1 y otra vez...

I absolutely loved Shadowrun: Returns and from the sounds of it, I'll love Dragonfall and Hong Kong even more. It's the perfect blend of cyberpunk and fantasy and the fact that it's turnbased rpg that hearkens back to the likes of Arcanum is right up my alley. Some people have complained that it is not challenging enough or that the story is lacking in depth, but I say phooey on them and if you can dig the aesthetic and the fun ride, you'll have a blast with this game.

Playing vanila version of Shadowrun Returns without any DLC is pointless. World it self and mechanic is on good level but story which is available is just too short and too simple.

If you are going to get in I will reccomend only with expansions.

Very good old-school RPG, with beautiful graphics, interesting storyline and awesome cyberpunk world. Main music theme is one of my favourite soundtracks ever.

PROS, CONTRAS y puntuación al final a modo de resumen, para aquellos que no quieran tocho.

Shadowrun returns es el regreso de esta franquicia de la SNES (no sé si incluso NES) al mundo de los videojuegos. Se trata de un juego de rol táctico por turnos muy elaborado. Tienes coberturas, variedad en las armas y puedes personalizar a tu personaje como quieras (yo iba con un loco con un montón de resistencia, una escopeta y una espada muy útil para las distancias cortas), La ambientación es totalmente ciberpunk y la historia se desarrolla en una Alemania futura con problemas.

La historia principal (El interruptor del hombre muerto) está bien, todo lo que parece un asesinato al final se complica de lo lindo. Hay más para quien quiera, ya que la comunidad del juego a hecho muchísimassss cosas para que puedas disfrutar de él. Si mal no recuerdo, está en inglés, a veces un poco elaborado, o lo estaba cuando lo terminé, no se si actualmente implementaron el castellano.

Gráficamente está un poco justo, pero la ambientación corrige este fallo. La banda sonora está muy bien.

Respecto a equipamientos, le puedes hacer de todo a tu personaje (implantes con extras para las batallas) y ponerle lo que quieras. Es totalmente personalizable. Tu grupo no tanto. No existe grupo de personajes como tal, existe una lista de mercenarios en la que para cada misión escoges a quien quieres llevarte y estos vienen con su equipo y habilidades, con lo que se hecha en falta tener compañeros de verdad.

Respecto a la duración, la campaña principal me ha llevado unas 15 horas (algunas no aparecen porque he jugado offline) y después puedes hacerte las que quieras a mayores. Tienes juego para aburrirte de gusto.

- El regreso de esta saga que a más de uno traera recuerdos
- El sistema de combate está muy bien para un juego táctico, recuerda a grandes como X-Com
- Le puedes hacer lo que quieras a tu personaje, ¿quieres un mago con katana? ¿un hacker y francotirador? Lo que quieras.

- En ocasiones hay un bug que te hace andar en modo batalla cuando vas por una zona sin enemigos, y lo peor, no puedes salir de ella.
- Si no te gustan mucho este tipo de juegos puede llegarte a cansar la cantidad de combates seguidos que hay en algunas partes
- Para quien pueda interesar, tiene cromos pero no logros

There are curently 3 Shadowrun games from Harebrained Schemes. Shadowrun Returns is the first one they have released and clearly the weakest of the three. That does not mean that Shadowrun Returns is a bad game, far from it. It is simply a weaker experience than the following titles. For people with limited free time, if you want to play a Shadowrun Game, go for Dragonfall first, Hong Kong second and, if you still crave more, give Shadowrun Returns a shot.

The Good:
+ Great, immersive atmosphere
+ Well designed visual style

The Mediocre:
~ Combat needs polish, some character builds are overpowered, other almost useless
~ Relatively short
~ The plot is not very interesting

The Bad:
- Extremely linear, the player does not have much say in how the plot unfolds

Surprisingly great cyberpunk round-based RPG-ish tactic game:

+ story
+ atmoshere
+ tactical gameplay, neat classes
+ cool soundtrack

- no possibility to "enter combat" on your own resulting in enemies (almost) always start the encounter
- only your own Hero is equipable with equipment (NPCs can only equip items such as grenades, medkits...)
- (need to read much, not voiced)
Playtime: ~20hrs for 1 playthrough

A fun short game (beat it in 10 hours) but an overall disappointment.
The level up/stats system is laughable -- I played a troll who has high maximum stats thinking I'd have the pleasure of making a strong brute of a hero. Alas, the campaign is so short you only gain enough experience (or karma in this case) to get slightly passed halfway. Huge letdown.
Also, when hiring mercenaries, you'd think they would be able to hack computers/open locks for you -- they cannot. It all relies on your character's skill set.
Being able to hire said mercenaries also allows you to get a taste for the different classes/races/weapons/tools and removes any sort of replayability. The storyline is very linear.
The in/out of combat system is finicky as well, and I had to reload more than a few times to fix.
Not worth $16. Thank you Humble Bundle.

Between the Cracks

Shadowrun Returns is a cRPG that was successfully kickstarted and has made its way to steam. The game is set in a cyberpunk world where risk takers, known as shadowrunners, undertake dangerous jobs for whoever pays the most. The game has no multiplayer but instead focuses on its strong singleplayer story and even has steam workshop support so that people can create their own stories and share them with others. Shadowrun Returns is a reboot of an old franchise on SNES going by the same name. This reboot truly sets a new standard for cRPG's with its phenomenal storytelling and graphics that really immerse you in the world of cyberpunk Seattle.

The lesson is this - the game is rigged. The cards are stacked. The dice are loaded.
It's the same as it always was.

Shadowruns combat is turn based and, as is usual in the genre, in order to perform any action you require AP. You start the game with 2 points of AP and about halfway through the main story you upgrade to 3 AP. The combat in Shadowrun is pretty usual and there really isn't much special about it. You play as one of 6 classes but really they only affect how you start off early on in the game. Something pretty cool about Shadowrun is that you can build your character however you want regardless of class and your build will still be viable. There are a handful of main skills you can upgrade, such as charisma and strength, and then under those you have at least four or five sub stats such as melee weapons or rifles. The problem here is, at least in the main story, that there are so many stats to upgrade that you can only get about halfway through the skill tree before the game is over. I did almost every side objective there was and I still only got about 3/4 of the way through some of the trees. The game is incredibly linear too so that there is very little you can do in the way of exploration or side objectives. Sometimes you can pass stat checks so that you can avoid combat or haggle price when selling an item but overall the stats really don't feel like they matter in most cases. In some cases, like upgrading rifles or submachine guns you can unlock new abilities to use in combat on those weapons but overall the upgrades from the skill trees are pretty boring. Some of the classes feel really unique and different but others are just typical RPG classes. The rigger, for example, is a class completely focused on controlling your own robots that can do things like sneak through ducts and ambush enemies. Other classes are just basic mages or soldiers and I feel that, while the unique classes are certainly cool, they're overshadowed by the more basic ones. The most interesting part of the game was when you get to hire mercenaries to go on runs with you. You put together a team of runners who come with you on missions and, for the most part you get to pick who you want to come with you, but in some cases you are forced to take main characters. Generally the gameplay is average for a game like this, but I feel they managed to pull it off in a way that, while getting stale after a while, still is respectable for the genre.

"Allow me to share a truth with you, Shadowrunner. The truly powerful do nothing themselves unless they absolutely have to."
-Hans Brackhaus

Now lets talk story. Shadowrun is quite short for a game in the same genre as Fallout 2 and Wasteland but I feel the story is compelling enough to make up for the poor length. You play as one of the aforementioned shadowrunners and you're in your apartment when you get a recording from your friend, Sam Watts. He tells you that if you are hearing this then he's dead.However, he has set up 100,000 nuyen (The games currency) wired on a dead-mans switch to be transferred to you if you can find his killer. You accept the job, be it for loyalty, money, or a mixture of the two and set out to look for the man that murdered one of the few you called friend. You journey through this gorgeous cyberpunk Seattle and as you do the game starts pulling you in and immersing you into this dog-eat-dog world. The environments are so incredibly detailed that you can't help but to want to know more about them. The game, however, doesn't really give you much backstory on the world and tries to keep you focused on the main storyline. The first half of the story you're looking for the cyberpunk equivalent of Jack the Ripper and for the latter half you have to stop an invasion by a horde of monstrous spirit bugs that cannot die. Every character you meet will make you care about keeping them alive and doing right by them or, at the very least, get you to want to learn more about them. Even though it's incredibly linear the story itself is very unique and fits in perfectly with the settings and characters in Shadowrun.

Shadowrun Returns shows that combat isn't everything and an intriguing story and artwork to match can be just as important

A Sci-fi world with magic and dragons mixed in, what more do I need to say about this game? The setting is in the future, where an event called 'The Awakening' brought magic back into the world. Needless to say if you are a fan of the Shadowrun universe, get this game immediately. To new players who love a good RPG and are just getting into Shadowrun, I recommend getting this to start you off.

shadowrun Returns's combat is reminiscent of XCOM, as it's turn based and every descision on the battlefield will mean death or getting your team alive. The many classes allow for you to make your character the way you want, but you can make your own class with the points you have, allowing for flexibility.

If you want a deep engaging novel-like RPG experience with tons of text and dialogue to read through, get this game and its sequels. If the novel-sized texts aren't your thing, then combat will keep you invested.

Solid turn-based cyberpunk RPG. Street punks and high society, massive corperations and crazy cults (also Orcs and Elves) it's all here. Enough deapth here that I played through the campeign twice and bought an expansion (I will get around to playing one-day).

I liked what I was able to play of this game, but considering I keep hitting a bug that won't let me continue with the campaign, I think it's fair to say that I wouldn't recommend buying this game. If you got it for free, sure - just know that this bug may turn your game into an extended demo. I can put up with the UI that will only respond to 1/3 of your clicks, but I can't get past a game that won't let you play it (or even close it) once you've hit the bug.

The developers have known about this bug for years, but still haven't fixed it. I don't think it's going to be fixed anytime soon. Makes me glad I didn't waste my money on their new Kickstarter.

A quick edit:

Oh, and I almost forgot: the save system is useless - when you want to save the game, you can't, and relying on the checkpoint save system is useless, as it doesn't save after key moments (completing objectives, etc).

As someone who loves the Shadowrun universe and tactical RPGs, this game was wish come true. My only complaint is that it is a little too easy, even on hardmode.
