I guess I am weird, but I am actually glad that it is all text instead of voiced. It leaves imagining what kind of voice each character might have to the player. I like all of the different references to the first game and the remixes of the original music are nice. The actual combat gameplay isn't all that exciting to me, but I'm not a huge fan of things like Xcom either. I don't dislike it, it's just not my favorite. I'm only a few hours into it (heard the game is somewhere between 10-14 hours) but I like it so far. The thought of playing extra content or creating my own content after finishing the actual game has me thinking I will easily get the value for my money out of it.
As far as Kickstarter goes, I didn't back this game because I didn't know about it until it was over. The only two Kickstarter games I have played, that I am aware of, are FTL and now this one. If those two games represent the quality to expect from Kickstarter games, then I'd be more than okay with that. That's unlikely, though.
Also, if it makes any difference, the original Shadowrun games are somewhere in my top 10 games if not top 5. I often go back and switch between the Genesis and SNES version every once in a while and both were great in their own way.
