Shadowrun Chronicles: Boston Lockdown review – run and gun | Metro

Shadowrun’s peculiar mix of Blade Runner and Lord of the Rings is used as the background for a new four-player turn-based strategy.

Maybe we’ve been hanging with the wrong crowd, but we don’t remember Shadowrun ever being THAT popular. Despite dabbling in pen ‘n’ paper role-playing during our youth the original tabletop version of Shadowrun passed us by. We do recall the SNES and Mega Drive tie-ins, just not anyone but us that had actually played them. And yet somehow Shadowrun got an Xbox 360 game in 2007 and this is the third PC adaptation in the last two years.

The story is too old to be commented.
