    Aragami is not for everyone, especially casual fans of the genre; it’s too demanding. Those of you who truly relish the hunt and welcome the challenge, though, will surely find that Aragami: Shadow Edition has what you’re looking for.

    With so many highlights like collectibles, skills, skins and additional story chapters, Aragami: Shadow Edition has much to be enjoyed. At its core, Aragami is a game about redemption and choice that is reflected throughout. Those qualities make it a worthwhile experience for any players in search of a compelling story and attention to detail.

    Aragami: Shadow Edition is all you could ask for and more from a game that is built on the mythology of shinobi. It may still have a few rough corners, but for a first stab on console that emphasises stealth, patience and bloody retribution? It’s a superb experience with plenty to say thanks to its included Nightfall expansion.

    Aragami: Shadow Edition includes the Nightfall expansion, which adds new skills, new worlds and an excellent level of challenge.

    Despite Nightfall being a relatively short bit of DLC, it manages to pack in some fun challenges with the level design, and the combat is as satisfying as ever. I found the story to be nicely paced throughout the four levels and leaves you off just before the opening of Aragami. However, the DLC doesn’t add much more to the game than the three new Shadow Techniques and is over once you’ve only just gotten into it.

    This game was better than I expected. If you love Dishonored series you'll love this game as well. Great stealth action game I love it

    Pros:
    - Decent graphics
    - Decent story
    - Decent handling of stealth
    - Game experience gets better with more skills unlocked, but you never feel completely overpowered

    Cons:
    - One hit and you're dead
    - Sometimes annoying checkpoints
    - No real pause screen (looking at you "kill every enemy in the level" missions)
    - Story isn't completely bad, but falls flat for the most part

    It's a decent game with a pretty cool art style, but I ended up losing interest about 2/3 the way into the game. Despite the developerIt's a decent game with a pretty cool art style, but I ended up losing interest about 2/3 the way into the game. Despite the developer sometimes presenting somewhat different stealth challenges in levels, it ended up feeling a bit repetitive. I'm not the biggest pure stealth fan, but I wanted to give the game a try. The game being on PlayStation Now allowed me to play it for basically free. If you like pure stealth with hardly any combat, give it a try. Expand
