Remember that really old Action RPG released back in 1994? Well, FASA Interactive has come back to create a second game into the series, but this time spanning off from the Role Playing aspect and creating a fast and strategic first person shooter. The first game you can easily compare Shadowrun to is Counter-Strike.
It contains some similar gameplay elements including purchasing items before the beginning of each round, except FASA has included more options. Most noticeably, since this is a fictional futuristic storyline, there is magic to be obtained that will become useful. Some of these abilities include teleporting, peeking through walls, and even resurrecting your teammates. These help make sure Xbox 360 and PC gamers are well balanced.
