    Altogether, its daft enemy AI and some wonky camera controls can’t bring down this phenomenal stealth experience. Aragami is pure eye candy with its feudal Japan-inspired visual style, which perfectly complements its unique and engaging shadow concept.

    Aragami is one of the best stealth games we've seen lately, which will satisfy fans of the genre. However just be prepared to spend some quite hard times with some more "action" moments.

    Despite some obvious limitations caused by tight budget Aragami is a surprisingly good, challenging stealth game. [13/2016, p.42]

    Lince Works' debut game is a solid proposition for enthusiasts of stealth genre. Aragami is not some kind of an amazing diamond in the sea of indie titles, but offers a complete experience and interesting shadow-hopping for about ten hours.

    Great old fashioned stealth built on a wonky, badly optimised game engine.

    Great stealth adventure that benefits from a funny game mechanics of making shadows and their movement hides under the cover of stylish graphic design. Pity of such primitive enemy AI, the final experience could be even better.

    Above-average idea is brought down by flawed technical state and below-average combination of a few design ideas. The result can catch you with its with visuals, but its flaws could push you into a psychotic outburst. [Issue #269]

    I believe that the storyline is original and and unique and the art- as in the architecture of the world-is fabulous. However, some areas areI believe that the storyline is original and and unique and the art- as in the architecture of the world-is fabulous. However, some areas are poorly designed. For example, as I was trying to find a route to arrive at the next checkpoint, I searched everywhere and at one point, I went behind the buildings and later, as I tried to find a way to exit this place where I wasn't supposed to be, I fell right through the world. In addition, I feel like, although it demands strategy, that the fights to get to another area are extremely repetitive. Expand

    Take the color palette from Mirror's Edge, put some cell shading from Borderlands, take a crippled version of Blink and Corvo from Dishonored,Take the color palette from Mirror's Edge, put some cell shading from Borderlands, take a crippled version of Blink and Corvo from Dishonored, throw them into a melting pot and you have Aragami.
    Game plagued by the worst capital (if worst could be capital in the same time) SIN of stealth games - NO F***ING HARD SAVE. Checkpoints horribly placed, if you die (and you will die a lot - because it's 1 hit kill) you are excruciatingly, painfully, horrendously forced to replay the chapter either from start or from the next checkpoint placed in the middle of f***ing nowhere, until you'll learn by heart all enemies routes. See what happened to Hitman Absolutions, Metro 2033, last Splinter Cell Games and how they were criticized because of this idiotic checkpoint system especially in stealth games. Oh yes, and Corvo could jump flawlessly over fences, this shadow "assassin" is crippled by the bad programming decisions. Pity though, it could have been a very interesting character. Uninstalled with light speed after third chapter.

    A solid F from me guys, you failed.
