If you are into Shadowrun then you will enjoy this game. It is Shadowrun without some elements. You still choose missions for "the man" and you get to upgrade yourself and your gear with tech and tech wears out so you have to upgrade/repair/replace it. Missions get harder and you can "hack" as a player if you choose the character that has the ability, but the "hacking" is interesting. You run around "inside of the computer" and grab files for later and you can fight in this environment but on a limited scale. Outside you run around and shoot thing that you could find a Shadow Run world. The only issue I have found with this game is it does not run nice on windows 7 pro or XP instead you need to have windows 98 or windows millennium. Even though it says windows Vista compatible it works but will crash constantly on you. For the short time I was able to play it on my win 7 machine i enjoyed it brought back memories when it first came out. Though, the game play gets a little stale even with the story line. Since it's like a Diablo game play style in a Shadow Run themed environment.

I tried has much as I could to enjoy this game and truly wished I could but...nope! The steampunk-like setting (and the low price tag) made me get this title. Gameplay is reminiscent of games like "Alien Shooter" or "Crimsonland". The thing is I would of had enjoyed it more if it maintained the same control scheme but instead, it plays more like the standard "hack n' slash" click on the enemy to shoot it. Difficulty is unbalanced with underpowered minions and overpowered bosses. Music is not the best and graphics are ho-hum. But to be honest, what made me abandon the idea of completing the story was a game breaking bug related to my saved game...I really hate it when a game decides to save at the same exact moment I die. Loading then made me repeat the process of dying...forever. I would of had loaded another game IF there where more than one save slot but nope...one per character is what you'll get. I should have spent my money elsewhere.

The first half hour of this game was the best part and I thought I was going to like it. However, after that it just got boring. It also leaves you with a feeling that it is an unfinished game. I stopped playing after a few hours and have not gone back to it. I thought I would like this game as I am a huge cyberpunk fan, but no luck with this one. When it goes down to a \$1 then check it out.

I played many games of this type and for this game can only say that if you look at its price you can have fun while waiting for another game to come !

The combination of the atmosphere of the game music and graphics not bad but could be better if you do not want some perfection, and if you want to lose the time this is perfect for that !

For me the interesting story and characters and the way your character develops in the game

That's all you buy and play and of course enjoy the game while you play!

For the price not bad at all. Some weapons (notably flamethrowers) are vastly overpowered, and most enemies are vastly underpowered. Missions/enemies are fairly repetitive and a few controls are a little akward, but it is fun if you like games in which you walk around easily killing lots of enemies. Plus it has the added bonus of frequently allowing you to swap your arms, legs, eyes, heart and other body parts on and off, right there on the battlefield.

A Diablo-ish Hack n' Slash RPG set in Cyberpunk theme. There are 4 characters to play as, and they vastly change the gameplay, so does their wide variety on skills. Some characters use guns but they aren't as fun as other Quarter-View Shooters like Alien Shooter. Items seemed quite random, specially you see Augmentations(Cybernetic Arms, Legs, Eyes, Hearts, etc) pop and drop on grounds. Overall, Cyberpunk is rare theme for games nowadays(I think) and it worth a shot if you like that theme, or you don't really have games to play. else, pass.

For the price, not a terrible game. It's gameplay and graphics are pretty old-school by the book Diablo clone, but the fact that it's set in a cyberpunk world makes it worth a play-through if you like a cyberpunk setting.

The combat is simple and the enemies are repetitive... also item drops seem to be somewhat random (a bunch of luddites out in the desert were dropping cybernetic parts), but the character customization, especially with the cybernetic parts is an interesting twist.

If you're bored and want a simple, cheap action-RPG that offers a setting other than the typical sword & sorcery type setting, give this a shot. Otherwise, pass.

I could only face around 20 minutes of this game. The first combat area I went to spilled hordes of two types of enemies, which seemed almost incapable of injuring my character. It has all the features that one would expect from a diablo clone but doesn't really do anything well.
