If you played and love any of the games above then this game will be like crack to you. It’s very fun your mobility and freedom are unmatched unless you’re on a small confining map and find the map boundaries. Multiplayer gamers will love this game, if you prefer single player don’t buy this but if your like me and spend most of your gaming time online then it’s a must own. To me this game is pure multiplayer mayhem and 100% fun and addictive (it’s really a good game). .

Last I checked 3 of those games had vehicles...are there any in shadowrun?

I've really been enjoying Shadowrun. It has a really fresh, strategic take on the FPS genre.

That said, the damn thing doesn't have a single player campaign...which will really bother me _unless_ the price is right (cough $40 or less).

I see only small similarities and influences with the games I mentioned above but those are the ones that come to mind. 360 owners should feel right at home with the controls there comfortable and fluid. Vehicles in a game like this would be just useless considering you can move by foot, by air or even through things faster and you can use all three in combination (your choice) The customization of your skills are limitless and suits every need from run and gun, tactical, sniper or even Sam Fisher. Now I own Gears of War and I’m a big fan and this game IMO is equal to in quality but not “gameplay” (gameplay is different so dont come at me and say NO! NO! NO! its not like GOW.)

About the price issue I agree with UrbanJabroni above, unless they give us a whole lot of maps and complete customized gameplay options or something special, then the price could be a problem. Personally I don’t need single player and the games purpose is online but if the multiplayer is about the same as current multiplayer games then the price could be an issue unless you love the game. I hope the reviewers are fair with them about just being multiplayer because I would be disappointed if this game got anything lower then a 9 on gameplay alone.

As for abilities and weapons I don’t want to give to much away, so here are some links to some video on Shadowrun and there homepage (hint go to there forums for more info) (type in Shadowrun) to learn more about magic/tech/and weapons (so many choices).

One more thing there is a bit learning curve do to the many character options and abilities.

This game's depth and quality gameplay are absolutely astonishing... I feel extremely privileged to be helping test this out, and I can't wait to get my hands on the full release.

Shadowrun's learning curve is STEEP - that is certain. But once you start getting comfortable with the abilities and controls, you're going to be in awe of this one :)
