    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]

    On the plus side :
    A very good game, very enjoyable, coupling gameplay from Dark (vampire with teleportation abilities) and from the Tenchu
    On the plus side :
    A very good game, very enjoyable, coupling gameplay from Dark (vampire with teleportation abilities) and from the Tenchu franchise with a feudal Japan setting. It is well balanced and executed, it is not a rushed game. Gameplay is interesting and evolving through the missions.
    The cellshading graphics are pretty good and the level design pretty interesting and not so obvious. Enemies are everywhere and you have to use your shadow powers very cleverly just to stay alive (detection generally means death ).
    On the minus side :
    The performance is not so good at the release date , the frame rate is really bad like 20 fps on some chapters with everything maxed and changing resolution leads to strong darkening of the screen (?)
    However, I have good hopes that these drawbacks will be fixed witth the next updates.
    At 18 € on release on the french steam store i think it is a good deal.

    Плюсы:
    1) Приятный визуал
    2)Своеобразная стелс-механика с игрой тени и света 3)Просторные арены позволяют добраться до цели разными
    Плюсы:
    1) Приятный визуал
    2)Своеобразная стелс-механика с игрой тени и света
    3)Просторные арены позволяют добраться до цели разными способами
    4) Не плохой сюжет, но который к сожалению в определенный момент становится предсказуемым.
    Минусы:
    1) Мало видов противников(к половине игры вы их уже всех увидите)
    2) Отсутствуют ручные сохранения,а чекпоинты расставлял конкретный "гений", и по большей части хотелось бросить игру не из-за своих неудач, а именно из-за месторасположения чекпоинтов.
    Подводя итог можно сказать что в целом это не плохая игра и в нее как минимум стоит сыграть хотя бы один раз.

    this game is "meh". the graphics are nice -- the colors are great, the sounds are cool. however the characters don't even speak a language,this game is "meh". the graphics are nice -- the colors are great, the sounds are cool. however the characters don't even speak a language, and I didn't know getting into it that it would be a stealth game. stealth games are mostly like puzzles, and i'm not a fan of puzzle games. also the game is very one-dimensional in that there's nothing more than killing guards or sneaking past them in the shadows. 6 out of 10.

    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.
