Shadowrun: Hong Kong - Deluxe Edition includes:
HONG KONG. A stable and prosperous port of call in a sea of chaos, warfare, and political turmoil. The Hong Kong Free Enterprise Zone is a land of contradictions - it is one of the most successful centers of business in the Sixth World, and home to one of the world’s most dangerous sprawl sites. A land of bright lights, gleaming towers, and restless spirits where life is cheap and everything is for sale.

Shadowrun: Hong Kong Features
A Classic, Story-Driven cRPG: Shadowrun: Hong Kong hearkens back to the golden age of computer RPG’s with a novel-like branching narrative full of sharp prose and deep character development. Immerse yourself in a smart, 15+ hour campaign with a diverse cast of all-too-human characters.
A One-of-a-Kind Cyberpunk Setting: Experience the unique “Tech meets Magic” dystopian future of Shadowrun, a fan-favorite game setting now celebrating it’s 25th anniversary. Shadowrun: Hong Kong is a perfect entry point to the setting for those with no prior Shadowrun experience, while providing plenty of classic Shadowrun characters and tech for veteran players to sink their teeth into.
Command Your Team: Just like Dragonfall, Shadowrun: Hong Kong features a crew of flawed, dangerous runners with backstories that could only be possible in the tech-meets-magic Shadowrun setting. The members of your team are designed to play contrasting roles during missions, and each has a distinct set of skills, abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. Each team member also has challenges to face in their own lives, which you can choose to brush aside or play an important part in.
Gripping, Turn-Based Tactical Combat: When you’re running the shadows, every turn matters. Choose your actions wisely - move to better cover, charge into melee, or lob a fireball into a crowd of enemies. With over 200 weapons and spells at your disposal, every turn is filled with meaningful choices.
Skill-Based Character Progression: Choose a starting character archetype and build from there! Street Samurai and Physical Adepts use advanced combat skills to dominate the battlefield, Shamans and Mages summon powerful allies and cast deadly spells, while Riggers and Deckers provide critical technological support, projecting their consciousness directly into drones and computer systems. Shadowrun: Hong Kong’s classless skill system allows you to grow your character in any direction you choose.

Shadowrun: Hong Kong is a party-RPG with mission-based gameplay and turn-based combat. Highly recommended. Story. Your father summons you and your brother to Hong Kong. Things go bad and you get stuck in the city with no money, no contacts and no support. You need to find out what is going on and what has happened to your father. Mission-based gameplay, several ways to achieve objectives and resolve problems. Gameplay. Turn-based combat and classless character system (the player is likely to have a specialization by the end, though). Karma (skill points) are gained from completing quests. Equipment is mostly purchased, but some can be found during missions. Stealth allows to avoid some combat encounters or engage from a better position. Dialogue options vary from different tones of essentially the same answer to the complete opposite. Player's choice affects both story and gameplay elements and determines the ending. Graphics. 3D models and detailed 2D environment. Look fairly good. Sound. Soundtrack is great and suits the setting.
The difference between Deluxe and normal edition of the game is not so great in this case. In Deluxe we only get soundtrack and pdf artbook - not too much to justify the price difference. Don't get me wrong - the soundtrack for this game is extremely good and I personally enjoy listening to it while working for example - the ambient tracks are very climatic and will be greatly appreciated by many. On the other hand - artbook is nothing special - you can see all these images online anyway and in much more preferable form - you don't need to navigate PDF file and have them strangely resized to fill pages. All in all - while Shadowrun: Hong Kong - Extended Edition is absolutely awesome game on it's own and any fan of RPGs and/or cyberpunk should get it, the Deluxe edition is worth it only if you're a big fan of it's soundtrack.
