Most publications have decided to not review the stand-alone re-release of the Shadowrun: Dragonfall expansion, which is understandable given that, for the most part, we're talking about the same content of the original expansion with a few additions and tweaks, but we still managed to round up a couple of recent review articles. Both have glowing things to say about it.
Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director's Cut welcomes multiple replays. A single playthrough is a rewarding experience, but the world is rich enough that further exploration is strongly recommended. Fielding different runners and making different decisions allows more thorough exploration of the scenario design and potential character loadouts. A single playthrough of most of the side content requires around 30 hours, but the save system aids further exploration for those who just want to collect multiple endings. Each save is threaded, allowing for easy navigation of the different choices along each branch. User-generated campaigns provide additional avenues of exploration. Dragonfall is worth any RPG fan's time and $15 unless, I don't know, they don't like cyberpunk, dragons, or exceptional tactical combat.
Hooked Gamers, 9.0/10.
Shadowrun Returns: Dragonfall- Director's Cut is the best available version of an already great game. Available as a stand-alone experience, it is definitely the place to start for new players looking into Shadowrun Returns. Dragonfall is an immersive, fantastically written adventure that supports itself with engaging gameplay while only being moderately brought down with its underwhelming audio and visuals. Anyone who enjoyed the initial campaign, who's a fan of isometric rpgs, or just enjoys a good story shouldn't hesitate to grab their gun, sword, rig, or spell of choice and get ready for the drek to hit the fan.
