Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun

Explore beautiful environments of ancient Japan in the Edo era!

Shadow Tactics is a hardcore tactical stealth game developed by Mimimi Productions and published by Daedalic Entertainment. Sharpen your katanas, grab your shuriken and don your Samurai armor. Take control of a team of deadly specialists and sneak in the shadows between dozens of enemies. Choose your approach when infiltrating mighty castles, snowy mountain monasteries or hidden forest camps. Set traps, poison your opponents or completely avoid enemy contact. Come up with your own ingenious tactics to vanquish enemies and complete missions. The characters develop their own dynamic and each member will have to face their own personal demons. One of the leaders of this team is Hayato, an agile ninja, who clears the way through his enemies silently, with his sword and shuriken. Aiko is a master of camouflage when she distracts enemies disguised as a Geisha. Samurai Mugen prefers a more powerful approach and can defeat more fiends at one time, but thus also forfeiting flexibility.

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun Review:

8.5 Total Score
Very Good

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun is an old school stealth tactics game in a modern style with motivating and great level design that requires strategic finesse. Minor shortcomings of this title can't lessen the satisfaction of every successful mission or a smart move around enemies. The player has to carefully evaluate his options in order to master the challenging missions. A robust user interface and three slots for quicksaves make sure that not only the hardcore audience, but virtually every player can have a great time with Shadow Tactics. If you like your realtime tactics with a flavor of old school like Commandos or Desperados then you can look forward to intense infiltration with challenging missions and superb AI.
