Styx: Master of Shadows - Summer Trailer
Pelit (Finland)Mar 18, 2015Styx: Master of Shadows is quite good as a stealth based game. Fighting sucks, but I think that is intentional, so that stealth is the main point. [Feb 2015]
Oct 29, 2014An entertaining stealth action offering its gamers sufficiently large number of environments along with another number of instruments for horseplays. Due to the weak production values and primitive combat system, this one is intended only for hardcore fans of the silent stealth genre.
Oct 10, 2014Styx: Master of Shadows is not a great game and the timing of its launch is somewhat unfortunate as many gamers are probably still enjoying the stealth approach in Shadow of Mordor, but for old school fans of the genre it does offer a solid experience with some nice level design and cool character abilities.
Oct 7, 2014In some ways Styx feels like a stealth game from an earlier era, but one that's more dated then vintage. It tries to pick up a few tricks from more modern games in the genre, but much of its core wouldn't have been out of place alongside the earlier Tenchu or Metal Gear Solid games.
Oct 11, 2014Finally a revive of the stealth genre. With only little imperfections here and there it's an unforgetable ride. No nursing, lots of freedom,Finally a revive of the stealth genre. With only little imperfections here and there it's an unforgetable ride. No nursing, lots of freedom, outstanding level (or should I say - world) and sound design, solid graphics*.
Smooth, precise, no automation allowing a great deal of freedom of movement. People complaining about it are usually accustomed to Assassin's Creed type of aids or plainly didn't grasp the introductory tutorial of Styx. After few hours I'm looking like a Quasimodo returning from a ballet lessons!
Good camera movement BTW. I've never seen a serious clipping or obstruction problems with it.
Mature fantasy world with interesting, original twists. Again, mature and non-trivial!
A little bit short-sighted and quickly dropping the hunt for you if you manage to run away after being detected but aside from it. A solid work.
Like a well-selected orchestra!
Initially I thought that some elements I've seen in the trailer are misplaced and that I won't use them. So wrong. Everything has its place and purpose and everything has its limitations, avoiding boredom and making a specific item too commonly used during gameplay. A stealthy run through a guard-crawling level on the highest difficulty level will leave you thinking you're a god :) It's all hard work, patience, planning and execution all put together.
Good representation of Styx's limitations. A jump 15 meters down and you're a goner. It's not anime...
One of the biggest selling points of the game. Apart from repetitive dialogues of the guards that is. The soundtrack should be sold separately! Well done and, as with the story and world design, a great deal of originality.

Styx is an excellent stealth game with lots of appeal and with an unusual, but actually very likable, main character. Can be pretty challenging but it's always fair, and often lets you have different approaches at the various challenges thanks to the main character's many abilities and skills. Great map design and interesting story too.… Expand

I normally get bored and crave something more, the latest "Thief" game is a good example in which this has happened to me. For some reason, with Styx: Master of Shadows, I can't stop playing.
Pros: You get to be a Goblin assassin. The best kind of assassin.
Expansive and creative level design offers a multitude of paths for your creative enjoyment.
The controls work well and I have had no problem with "ledge detection" like other people have stated.
Movement animations are nimble and feel right. Kill animations make you feel powerful and gritty.
Beautiful graphics especially the lighting and main character, Styx.
Good story and a cool way of telling it as far as I'm concerned.
Cons: Sub par voice acting. I really feel like this is the only thing keeping it from a 10/10 to me. If I had to rate the voice acting it would be a 6/10, not horrible but it could have been better.
All in all, this is a great game for about 25$. I've enjoyed it more than most games I've bought this year for over twice that price.… Expand

Unusual protagonist, charismatic in his own way. Plot as a whole is strange, didn't quite comprehend it :)
Technically the game is adequate, graphics are good, music is great (watch the launch trailer again!).
You have to F5-F9 all the time, not that it's too burdensome. Reusing levels in the late game makes it a bit too longer than it should be without adding much new content. Solid game overall.… Expand

The combat isn't fun as everyone has already said but if your good at hitting the right button at the right time then you can just exploit it. The levels are not very visually impressive, the graphics are not bad but your just mostly walking trough brownish grey hallways the whole time. The story is the definition of "meh". It has one but who you wont care. Overall as a game its fine but it has nothing thats fun or that stands out.… Expand
