Review: Shadowrun Dragonfall

I’m going to cheat a little bit with this review.  As has been widely reported, I recently reviewed Shadowrun Returns and, in short, it’s a great game for fans of RPGs and turn-based combat.  Well Shadowrun Dragonfall is so similar that I’m going to piggy-back off of that review so I recommend that you read that one first.
