Shadowrun for Genesis is crap. They put a lot of "skinner´s box", just like today MMOs (and the game is 100% offline, single-player) to make the game fell bigger than it really is. It´s a shame because this game had the potential to be much more if simple the developers don´t put too much thicks for the player waste his/her time.
It´s NOT challenging, just annoying, do a lot repetive side quest to have more in game money NOT for upgrade characters but to bribe NPCs that you need to bribe in order to advance story and finish the crap (I mean the game)
Waste you time with other game, like Shadowrun for SNES or the japanese for sega-cd.
