    Styx: Shards of Darkness reviews and comments

    Translated by
    Microsoft from Deutsch
    The Sequel to the successful Indie-/Stealth Game Styx: Master of Shadows Story Her plays a pessimistic, talking Goblin who is actually just trying to escape his Past. With Thefts he tries to keep himself afloat And is quite successful. One Day, when he stole the Salary of some Soldiers, he is caught doing so by the Captain of the "Goblin Extermination Force." The Captain made an Offer To Styx that he could not turn down: Styx is supposed to go in search of a mighty Scepter, which possesses tremendous powers. Gameplay As Goblin, you are a very easy Target for Opponents. But being so small also has its Advantages. Hiding yourself in the Shadows around your unsuspecting opponent or just drop a Chandelier on them. Styx: Shards of Darkness offers you a Variety of Ways to turn off your Opponents. But there are also many different Ways to sneak past your Enemies. So Killing doesn't have to be an Option. But there's more to it than just the People standing in your Way. Monsters, Elves and Dwarves make life particularly difficult for You. But don't Worry, the Game isn't just you, your Opponent and your Blade. The crafting system is a great Help and the skill free is also very extensive. This can also be played in the Co-op, which is a very nice Feature. But Co-op mode isn't necessarily easier, as you only ever endure one Punch. So you'd better avoid Fights. Another Feature is the equipment system. You don't just have to fight with the same Weapon. For example, you can equip a Dagger that dissolves enemies after killing, but you can't kill them silently with it. One More thing: You will die. Very often even. But instead of a boring Death Screen, you get to hear a funny Saying From Styx. A very nice Idea, as I think. Graphic The Game has its very own graphic style. Very nice Textures and a lot of Details in the Levels. The World is more laid out in the fantasy/steampunk area, which might particularly interest WoW fans. Character Design is very extensive but repeated more often after 4 Hours. Despite everything, the World of Styx is incredibly mystical and interesting. (Styx is native to the Universe of: Of Orcs and Men) Sound The Game has a very nice Background Music and Styx's Sayings are humorous and accompany you throughout the Game. As mentioned above, Styx makes fun of one every Time you die. The Animation is very successful and I have to admit that the Sayings are not without. Here's an Example: "You know there's no point in playing with your Feet, right?" Conclusion Because of the high Level of Difficulty, Assassin's Creed players should make a Bow around the Game but an absolute Must for hardcore stealth players. Personally, I find €40 a bit too high and would recommend buying it in the Sale as the (story) game time is about 10-15 Hours.
