Those minor gripes aside Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun completely blindsided me by making itself a very strong contender for my game of the year in the final month of 2016. Stating that sentence in the year DOOM was released is one of the highest praises I can sing and I can absolutely strongly recommend that you pick up Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun as soon as possible.

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.

It enhances its smart, challenging gameplay with likeable characters, beautiful art and clever new features. It's a style of game that I haven't seen done properly in more than a decade, and while it's handled differently than classics like Commandos, Shadow Tactics packs in a wonderful team of varied characters and tons of ways to experiment with your strategy.
