A nice throwback to the era of Thief with few modern elements.

If you like stealth-games, then this is definitely one of the better titles around. Particularly if you like adding some fantasy-elements to it all. You have your missions, connected to an overarching story, and there are multiple ways to go about accomplishing them. You can sneak through them, fight your way through them, or backstab your way through them. If you are the overarchieving type, there are also plenty of secondary quest objectives to pursue. In what other game will you get the objective to steal a guard's pet kitten? Styx himself also gets upgraded throughout the game, which you get to choose depending on your play-style. It is great fun launching a goblin from the tope of a ledge only to have him land silently by "landing" his knife in a guard below. The game has its glitches, such as guards getting stuck walking into each other or bodies bouncing away as they land. Most annoyingly is that there are places you cannot access until you return to the same map in a later mission... but the game does not tell you that. Instead, you are stuck wondering how to get in there. However, all in all Styx: Master of Shadows is a very solid effort.

Paradoxically an OK game that is deliciously addictive.

Styx: Master of Shadows is a difficult game to really give a normal, quick review. If you go by the standard hours of unique gameplay, graphics & audio bells and whistles.. well, it does not fare so well. The dialogues for non-player characters get tiredly repetitive, as are their predictive movements. Certainly better than the previous Styx game, yet the game mechanics feel old. And then again, it is surprisingly addictive. Even when you know by heart where are the loot thingies, what paths do the NPCs take, their dialogues, I come again and again to improve the outcome, explore different ways to unlock the various rewards. It has that Civilization-esque sort of addiction. You hate it, then you come back for more. It is certainly not a bad-looking game, but these days, even crappy games look great. And there are some gorgeous sites to behold. Akin to the Wicher 3. Ok maybe it does not achieve that level of excellence, but it certainly tries. It feels like an indy game that is outgrowing it's indie-ness. And it did entertain me for hours on end. And it is forgiving on not-the-bleeding-edge videocards. Which, in this day and age, is a blessing.

Love the humor of the character. The perspective of a creature one would normally find as an enemy in these types of games are quite fun. Especially making use of your unique features. The stealth challenge of the game is considerably fun and the navigation has a similar feel to the older thief games when it comes to the maps. Definitely recommend.

I played Shard of Darkness first and I can honestly say I enjoyed it, the sequel adds lots of QoL but this one is not as finicky or difficult as I've seen other reviews state. Sound can sometimes go from very loud to very soft between gameplay and cutscenes and audio options are very limited but other than that it's a very worthwhile buy
