Styx, the game i played during my high school days, enjoyed the stealth killing, hiding from shadows, using clones, consuming amber and health towards mission. The story of the game was also great. The animation was very clean. Worth playing!...

Stealth is your only option in this game because direct combat will most assuredly end in death. I tend to forget that there are abilities I can use other than invisibility because there's not much reason to use them. Completing challenges is very difficult unless you're a great tactician and very familiar with the maps. I find that playing this once is enough because there is not much to do after completing the game other than gathering challenge medals

For all its openness, there were a few points in the game where I felt I was being funneled and perhaps the most disappointing aspect was the re-visiting and re-population of some areas, ...the advent of the latter feels like gratuitous hurdle placement and the asset recycling in general gives the impression the game has been padded out. But those gripes aside, S:MoS weaves an entertaining Grimm-like yarn in and around twenty hours-worth of furtive fun.

If you can get past the fact that it isn’t the best looker, you’ll have a good time with Styx. It’s particularly recommended for hardcore sneak-em-up fans looking for a genuine challenge: a stealth-action game in which the emphasis is unapologetically on the stealth, and not the action.

The only saving grace I can find for Styx: Master of Shadows is that it only costs $30.00 at launch. At that price, there may be some hardcore stealth fans who might find some enjoyment here. If this were a 60 dollar product it would be a crushing disappointment for many. At $30.00, it’s merely an inferior game that you probably shouldn’t play, but you could do worse. Styx’s stealth is less “Master of Shadows” and more like the lyric from his namesake band “This jig is up. The news is out. They finally found me.”
