A hard game you'll want to master

Mar 2, 2021
A Stealth game where you control 5 character: a Shinobi, a Kunoichi, a Kunoichi in Training, a Samurai & an old Gunman. Each character comes with their own unique set of skills. Either use your skills or the environment to take out your targets or the guards. You can take out enemies lethally or non-lethal but your targets always have to be killed. Extremely challenging to remain unseen even on easy mode. You have to think a few steps ahead because of the change in enemy movements when you take out certain guards. Artwork and story is amazing as well as the soundtrack.

Even by Commandos own lofty standards, Shadow Tactics is a masterclass. It layers in just enough additional nuance to elevate it to the next level. The skills are more elaborate. The level design consistently excellent. The manner in which you’re often required to go back to the drawing board is genius. For fans of real-time tactics and stealth games, Shadow Tactics is very nearly without compare. It’s that same classic Commandos gameplay wrapped up in an exquisite new shell; still punishing yet not cruel.

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun’s uncommon attentiveness to characters and story elevate what is already a really entertaining and mentally stimulating quest across 17th-Century Japan. The near-constant annoyance of the camera definitely hindered my feeling of being a zen ninja assassin. Overall though, developer Mimimi has put together one of the most punishing and clever top-down stealth games I’ve ever skulked through.

The base gameplay is a solid stealth foundation, the different characters allow for lateral thinking to solve challenges, the changing mechanics from the environments require readjustments in strategy, and the overall difficulty keeps it from ever becoming a trivial puzzle game.
