The Shadowrun license lends itself perfectly to an in-depth and complex role-playing experience, but unfortunately, it feels like Shadowrun Returns just skims the surface. The story is interesting enough and there’s a handful of great characters to interact with, but at times it does feel like the game was dumbed down a little too much for casual audiences. The 2D artwork looks great and the soundtrack is very atmospheric, but by the end of the 12-hour campaign, we were left wanting more.
Gameplay: A lot of fun, but not as in-depth as we had hoped.
Graphics: The 2D artwork looks great, but the 3D character models could have been better.
Sound: No voice acting, but the soundtrack fits the game perfectly
