Shadowrun

Microsoft shows off its controversial new first-person shooter.

Ditching the role-playing elements of the original game for straight up action, Shadowrun has been completely overhauled for its debut on Xbox 360 and Windows Vista. You won’t find a densely woven story or complex character development here; rather, action is the name of the game in this reincarnation of the series. In fact, Shadowrun skimps on solo play and goes for multiplayer gold with online gameplay between Xbox 360 and Windows Vista. The lack of a substantial single player experience could prove to be the game’s fatal flaw, but at least the multiplayer will give you a run for your money.
