    Broken achievement

    This game has an achievement that will never unlock according the the developers. They apologized for that and said that because they're a small developer they don't have to resources to fix it. If you're a completionist like myself, you will definitely not want this game.

    Fun stealth game with real emphasis on sneaking

    This game tries to capture the feeling of older stealth games with an emphasis on using the environment to get around and using shadows to hide. Like the previous Styx titles it injects a lot of vulgar humor into the narrative while still playing the story straight.

    I say difficult game because the loading of the game is frustrating. It takes forever for the game to reload and gets frustrating after you die. My patience with the game didn’t last long. Overall graphics choppy but concept of game appeared enjoyable and fun.

    Great price on sale, Xbox One graphics and sound are great, ambiance in the game is excellently done. Sneaking around, blowing out torches, setting traps, backstabbing enemies quietly is so much fun.

    A different type of modern game with a mix of fun

    The game has good detail and enjoyable aspects for all levels of game players. The length of the story mode makes it a lot of fun for a large amount of time as one feels like they get their money's worth.

    This is a solid stealth game. You can play alone or in online co-op. It's similar to the first game, Master of Shadows, but does everything a little better. Recommend to fans of stealth games.
