Hrm. I love the background/setting. I will forever be an early-80s cyberpunk fan, as Neuromancer was the first novel that I remember having a really transformative effect on my outlook. However, this sounds like the kind of puzzle game that just doesn't appeal to me. I was OK with Ghost Stories, but the often-ridiculous level of difficulty was the factor in trading it. But using some of the publisher's later variants to ease that made it a walk. If the first couple SMCs are as easy as you say and the other two are crushing, that sounds like a similar kind of design flaw; in that a lack of playtesting didn't reveal the scenarios wherein your cards and the board state simply don't give you a way out. Based on what you've said, I can already see the expansion coming that provides more Hackers, more SMCs, and several new cards for the Hackers to compete against the game's basic design. I think I'll pass.
