If you try to access the beta you get a message saying to pretty much go and buy Shadowrun while your waiting. Check out the video of the message of death? Video showing the message at GTHQ
Or better yet : Buy COD 2, COD 3, Rainbow Six Vegas or even Fear instead.
In NO way should anyone buy FEAR just for the online portion. Its ok but nobody plays it. Shadowrun is actually a blast!
Do not buy Shadowrun. Rent it if you need something different to play, but it is not worth $60. My thirst for something new led me to buy this. I enjoyed it for the first few days, but it became stale quickly. With no single player, only 3 game types, no stat keeping and some subpar tech (poor animations, graphics, sound) the game falls short of being a $60 value.
Of a Beta related/unrelated note, EBgames/Gamestop dropped the trade in value of Crackdown to $14 US. You'd be better served to keep it.
how about i buy a Nuclear warhead and blow up my 360?
since you don't own a 360.
a point there.. Seems like I won't buying "Shadowrun". I keep hearing it different but not enough replay value.
it's good, it's just not finished. It sucks because fasa makes great games, if microsoft wasn't rushing games for windows live, and using shadow run as a test subject for cross platform gaming I think it could've been a good game.
has anyone seen the way you climb ladders?
lmao its worse than the Halo 1 style
Shadowrun was the guinea pig for cross-platform gaming?
havent played full version but it doesnt seem like its worth the buy
its been getting pretty bad reviews...but im having a blast with the demo
id say worth a rent...achievements seem pretty cool
it scored high then Killzone so it must be good.
lol i couldn't resist
WITHOUT playing... It was tough to resist, very tough, but now that it's over, I'm glad I held out. Come September, I'll never have felt the controls, never shot the Spartan laser, dropped a bubble shield, or seen or heard anything from Halo 3 in person (outside whatever crappy videos are on youtube)...
And that's exactly how I want it-- completely fresh and completely unspoiled. I wanted the first time I play it, to be the primed, polished, finished disc popping into the tray--All the better to be blown away!
I wonder if anybody else felt the same/held out from the Beta like I did?
Not all of us have the amount of willpower you display. You truly could do herion 5 times a day for two weeks straight and then go cold turkey. I admire your will-power sir.
But I do not share you views. The beta was an awesome way to get a taste of whats to come. A lot will change most likely. But I see where your coming from, wanting the whole expirience to be fresh.
I would loved to have done the same, but I would be setting myself up for disappointment. Now that I've played the Beta, my expectations of the game are more "realistic".
I'm tired of waiting for films and games with such high expectations,only to be disappointed. I've given up trying not to have films or games spoiled.
I downloaded the beta but never got around to playing it.
had a blast with th multiplayer!
Terrotories on High ground...
Martz: "Everybody Veto!"
Me: "No, don't Veto!"
...VIP on Vahalla...
Everybody: "Oh no!"
Me: "Told you so."
of course they say that! they're owned by Microsoft, and Microsoft wants their respected developers to push for games created by MGS (Microsoft Game Studios)... especially when this game is a PC/Xbox 360 game!
why is every one saying shadowrun is bad..its really good.
YOU KNOW IT ! :)
VaeVictus, Dude find your own avitar don't rip off my sh!t and the only reason your even in here is to talk sh!t. You have never played this game and never will, your still waiting B3YOND. Anyway anyone notice the review trend? everyone wants to give this game a 9 or above so badly but they can't do to the little content they gave with the game. I going to do a PS3 thing and wait (on purpose) and see if they come out with good "free" downloadable content.
PS VaeVictus, if you don't want to get pwned then don't respond to me.
I really like shadowrun.
so this is how MS is trying to increase the attach rate....get a game over hyped by halo fans and allow people to play it only if they go out and buy crappy games...... damn MS throw your followers a bone now and then.....PS3 owners get the warhawk beta for free, no need to waste money on a game to play an unfinished game. and cybercentiel calls PS3 fans blind lemmings lol.
