What is Shadowrun Dragonfall Director’s Cut

Shadowrun Dragonfall Director’s Cut is a game that is based on a tabletop RPG by the same name that was originally released in 1989 that had a number of video game that were released from 1993 to 2013. Shadowrun Dragonfall Director’s Cut combines fantasy, cyberpunk, and crime genres in a very unique way. It’s in the Google Play Store for $6.99.

The game is set up as a strategy RPG and thus retains many of the strategy RPG elements including game boards and mechanics. The game uses a mission structure where you must complete missions to advance the story. The game features a classless growth system based on skill points so you can grow your team as you choose and a full story with five additional missions and alternate endings.

The graphics and sound are surprisingly good for how old this game is. The developers have redesigned pretty much every aspect of the title from its earlier incarnations and pretty much all of the redesigns took the game in a positive direction. It is story driven and you play in a dystopian society where crime is rampant and companies go unregulated. You play as a team of shadowrunners who do jobs and earn a payday but put that on hold to deal with a deadly threat.

Shadowrun Dragonfall DC review
Overall, this is definitely something a little bit different. The high fantasy elements of elves and goblins are present and the mechanics are the familiar strategy RPG that most people know. That all contrasts nicely with the cyberpunk elements and customized character development. $6.99 may seem a tad expensive but this is a complete game and there are no in app purchases.
