A perfect fit-name


This game has a charming name and it is probably not chosen at random. In this strategy game, you will have to lead a group of deadly assassins through different scenarios. You will have tasks to perform and you will need to earn badges to complete your assignment.

Believe me, there’s only one way you can win, trying to be stealth and silent. So, you have to use Shadow Tactics (heh!). Do enemies find you out? Well, at a rate of 90% you will lose the game and your accumulated progress. This makes the gaming experience very challenging, but you can take advantage of the Quick Save feature and continue as before in case of game over.

For that reason, you will need to consider your moves carefully. You can develop your strategy using different objects, such as traps, poisons, and special weapons. If you’re looking for a game that will make you think and test your skills as a strategist, Shadow Tactics will satisfy you fully.

Shadow Tactics: graphics and longevity are two strengths of the game

Shadow Tactics graphics

The graphics of the game is a strength that impressed me positively. I found the settings curated to the maximum, every little detail is perfect. For this reason, you will have no difficulty in moving each of your characters as desired.

Besides, the colors of the game are very beautiful, bright, and lively. They can make you feel different emotions. Plus, the minimum requirements of the game are quite common. You can try Shadow Tactics if you have a mid-range computer without any problem.

What about the longevity of the game? Well, I can be really satisfied. If you’re not used to strategy, it’ll take days to complete a mission. In total, you can spend as much as 70 hours to finish the game.

Conversely, if you have experience with Paradox RPGs, you can finish the game in half the time. However, you can replay the game to be able to finish it 100%. Also, you can try to accomplish the missions differently. Trust me, you can replay this title with pleasure, you will never be bored.
