I am now going for my second play of this fun game! I really enjoyed the game as a Cyberpunk experience. The atmosphere was spot on, I enjoyed the descriptions and dialogues, the NPC characters were well designed (Jake, Coyote, Mr. Kluwe, Johny Clean, Mclusky) and I found the gameplay to be not great but good enough to carry me through the plot, which I cared about from the start.
As a long time cyberpunk and William Gibson fan I really enjoyed seeing being used dead man's switches, BTL addicts, human puppets/bunrakus, megacorporations, simstims, the matrix, and so on.
My main beef with the game is that the second half wasnt as good as the first (the emerald ripper investigation vs Universial brotherhood). The first half was definitly more cyberpunk and the second was the usual fantasy stuff with the save the world concept and magic bugs from outer space.. Still a fine game. 7 out of 10 stars.
