Dull and uninteresting game without ideas and tension and with a lot of unfinished work. Lenient, undemanding fans of stealth games may be satisfied for a while, but even they should wait for a sale. Everyone else should rather return to Dishonored or Hitman.

It’s not going to win any hearts and minds any time soon, but as an open-ended stealth experience, Styx: Shards of Darkness more or less does its job without major stumbles. Less of the lip, though, please.

Be warn : this is an Stealth Game. You don't like this type of game ? Go away.

But what if you like to sneak? Then buy this game. Its price is low, and its quality is high.

Graphics are not awesome but they work very well, so no need to have a super-computer to run this visually pleasing game. The level design is just excellent, the gameplay is better than many AAA Stealth game, and more importantly : the game is fun. Just that. Is not that what you would expect in the first place from a game?

What more can be said? In the end, Styx is nothing less than a good stealth game. And we do not ask for more, especially for such a reasonable price.

Important point to note however: the game is only voiced in English (but the texts are translated into several languages). Personally, it does not bother me (I even prefer that), but be warned that if you do not like English voices ... you will have no choice here. That is the price to pay when you can not afford to have voices for each country. So English only, but the voices are good anyway.

The death scene taunts can get a bit tiring (when you die frequently… especially if it’s from a fiddly jump) but overall there’s a lot of charm on offer here and an interesting story. Worth a look and a bit of fun.

Don't be scared off by less-than-stellar reviews, it's a pure stealth game; scrubs are going to rate it poorly just because they're bad at it. If you liked the first one, you'll like this one. Some of the powers carry over, some didn't, and there are new ones as well, including a crafting system. If you're a stealth fan, buy both Styx games.

Bigger and more detailed levels, better controls and better graphics. At the same time I was playing original Master of Shadows and I can tell that developers put a lot of effort to make this game better and they did. Plus I have never seen such a fluent gameplay in any stealth game. Why 9 not 10? There are still some minor issues, such as controls and enemies blocking on the walls and each other.

The first game was an unsung hero of 2014 for me, but now with a little more kick behind its sequel Styx: Shards of Darkness has set itself up to be noticed by more eager gamers looking for a challenging stealth experience. With a more optimized experience, more freedom to the players and more of that sarcastic and vulgar goblin goodness, Styx has found his way once more back into the heart of this gamer - with a sharp dagger and sarcastic commentary.

Styx Shards of Darkness

More of a Half Step than a Sequel

Shards of Darkness is the Sequel to Master of Shadows…

But with its own self contained story, so you don’t need to play any of the past games to be able to hop right in…

This is more of Master of Shadows, but at the same time almost completely different…

Theres are 9 missions total here.. but these missions are half the length of the first game..

Taking me anywhere from an hr to an hr and a half to complete… the game took me about 12 hours to complete…

But its much less about mastering the shadows here…

All of the basic assassinations you had to unlock in the past game are unlocked from the start with a new set of skills to master…

And while Shards of Darkness Improves in many areas Master of Shadows struggled… It also fails in areas Master of Shadows had down perfect…

Much like the last game, Shards of Darkness puts you in an open level with a dagger and some potions, and its up to you to make to the different task locations and then make it back to your hide out…

But things are much more casual and straight forward this time…

You still have your sand to throw at torches, but they never felt useful here…

You now also have to gather materials to craft items and potions instead of refill at base..

Sounds like a good idea… but materials are way to rare here.. really testing your stealth skills..

Im horrible at stealth, so I found it to be a bit annoying…

And you can call in a clone, but gone are the clone puzzles and distracting.. and because of that the clone turns into a consumable skill like turning invisable…

This time however youre able to create or become a perfect clone in an online co op mode…

As a perfect clone you have all of your skills and items, but you cant pary in combat and you die in one hit… and if either you or your partner dies you can brign the other back to life by sacrificing half of your health….

And speaking of combat, they somehow managed to make it worse…

They got rid of the auto locking which is great.. youre free to run which was the thing that held the original games experience down so much… but because of this.. .parrying can be awakward, as youll a lot of the time be too close to parry while the enemy can still damage you…pretty annoying…

But don’t worry.. besides the first few levels.. pretty much every enemy is invulnerable….

So youre not gonna be needing those darggers too much…

The game over all and the levels here at first feel polished and a nice change of pace…

But by level 3 you realze they all look and feel the same…

They feel like a broom closet compared to the shoe closet master of shadows was…

Theyre small and compact and feel copy and paste rather than hand crafted and grand …

They even went as far as reusing levels for 3 of the final missions.

A massive disappointment, as the level design was one of my favorite things about this series…

Its still fun though.. sneaking through vents..

Dealing with new annoying enemies like dwarves that can smell you.. making hiding useless…

Plus theyre invulnerable… even worse…

And some of your favorite annoying enemies making a return like the beatles that spit at you.. thankfully youre able to kill them like regular guards this time…

And the mission structure has improved greatly… they’ll have you retracing your steps as youre running around to sabotage or assassinate a target…

it isn’t just getting from point a to b..

there are even some boss battles in here.. that if youre wondering if theyre as bad as the maste of shadows ends boss..im pleased to say that these 2 boss battles were 2 of the most memorable moments in the game…

And of coruse the jokes and game rfereences are all over here both in game and at your death screen…

Which is another improvmement.. load times… they still need work but are miles better than they were…

Sahrds of Darkness is a mixed bag of emotions.. I love the change in combat, the fact that we have real skills available from the start, improved mission structure, less grindy story,faster load times, better bosses, but the forced do not get detected sections of the game, the lack of materials to actually craft with the crafting system, the amount of invulnerable enemeies, the tiny repetitive maps…

it stops this game from surpassing the first…

It felt more of a rush through stealth game than a calculating, pick your targets, take them out one by one, im goblin batman, like I came to love from the original game…

I was doing more avoiding enemies and the world than I was engaging with it…

I give Styx: Shards of Darkness

a 7/10

Once you get past the slightly budget look of the UI and occasional control jank, there is a solid core of a pretty damn good stealth game here. Give him a chance, and Styx might just steal your heart (only to pawn it at a fraction of its value, the little bastard).

The second adventure has the bitter taste of a wasted opportunity.
