What will you get if you mix a multiplayer shooter like Counter-Strike and a touch of magic in the air? Yes, it's definitely the new game of Microsoft which is the Shadowrun. It has the edge of war fighting using different ammunition and guns with a touch of magic spells and character upgrades. This kind of game attracts both genders who love guns and magic spells but due to its lack of diversity made the game a superficial experience.

Upon signing up, there will be a brief and necessary training to familiarize oneself with the basic information and intelligence. This new game is played online with up to 16 players. The story is all about opposing forces fighting each other and trying to control magic in the new and modern high tech world. Well that is just the main idea; the rest of it is just about increasing skills by buying things and artifacts.

Shadowrun is played just like Counter-Strike with the ability to play with multiple players. At the beginning of each game, you are presented with a period where you will be able to indulge yourself in the buy menu and equip yourself with guns, hi-tech upgrades and lastly magic related spells. Aside from buying a .34 caliber pistol you might want to equip yourself with some form of magic that enables you to teleport anywhere imaginable, heal other players, smoke that will enable you to be invincible buy any kind of weapon, or gust which blow other players around the field. There are a lot of lists of things you might want to use but the down play is you can only equip yourself with three weapons at a given time.

To make things more interesting, you can choose your own race from a variety of choices. How interesting will it be to be an Elf for a day and run so fast and regenerates health? Or will you choose to be a strong, big tough Trolls but slow in pace? You can be a little dwarf that can absorb powers from other players. Or you can choose to stay human and use all the hi-tech and modern weapons that exist.

Once you chose your race, it's off to battle! There are three kinds of game types you can expect in Shadowrun. The two of which is focused in what they called artifact or the games version of flag. One team will defend the artifact with all their strength and power, and one team will try to capture it and deliver it to a specific location. The last type of the game that you can expect is the attrition, you no longer concern yourself with the artifact but instead you will have to destroy all other teams that you will encounter.

There will be no problem in playing this game through Xbox 360 and PC playing in an identical server. The sound effects, and the visual effects is in excellent quality and the magic spells is fine. But there are things that should have been considered. Characters don't have uniqueness in them, they looked identical and it could have been better if there are many choices to choose from. It will be difficult to recommend this game, for you may not be getting all your money's worth.
