6.9

Gamespot reviews Shadowrun and gives it a 6.9

This multiplayer-only shooter does absolutely nothing with the Shadowrun name, and its unique strengths are offset by a lack of variety.

The Good: Unique ability system sets the game apart from other shooters; lets vista and 360 users play on the same servers; good-looking effects.

The Bad: Bad and missing animation makes the game look unfinished; not enough maps to stay interesting for long; does absolutely nothing with the shadowrun license.

Now I gotta change my avatar! Thanks pal!

haha...just playin' with ya. Devil May Cry is the single most important reason to be a gamer. It is the pinnacle of gaming. Why didn't anyone like DMC2? I thought it was AMAZING!

Each game re-invents the genre!

BTW...shadowrun recieving this score. I don't know if it'll be THAT bad, but whoever reviewed this was stoned. You can clearly see that 6.9 is 69 in disguise...

Well to answer ur question, i think DMC1 set the bar pretty high....when 2 came out and they made dante less cool and for some reason, quieter than the first, it was kind of a letdown...we'll all knew dante's characters as a trash-talking badass who never gets intimidated....on a positive note, i like the wall crawling in part 2 though....And no offense to you and Marionz but imo, Vergil is better...reminds me of Sepiroth with that long samurai sword....He should get a spin-off game or something....

I think DMC2 was way too easy....

Forza 2 9.2 ? Shadowrun 6.9 ? Noobspot ?

Bunch of fat people work for gamspot ! IGN FTW ! GameTrailers FTW

Gamespot forums are the worst forums. Everyone acts like a little kid and you get suspended for nothing. **** the Gamespot

The mods at the GS forums are very uptight.

Considering there's no single player game in Shadowrun I don't think the score is too far off. Ok so you can play single with bots... whoopdeedoo. Forza 2 on the other hand has singleplayer, multiplayer, and a HUGE online community where you can auction off cars, get people to mod your vehicles for you, make paint jobs for you and a number of other things.

Maybe it's just that Shadowrun didn't get the hype that would have made it good. I think the multiplayer actually has some mechanics that could put it over Halo 3's multiplayer but Halo 3 is going to have a single player game too.

I stopped agree with GameSpot for a very long time

I actually heard this was a good game. I take everything Gamespot says with a full shaker of salt though.
