Styx is a pretty decent and surprisingly enjoyable stealth game which can be pretty challenging at times. The level design is excellent, usually changing as you advance and descend through the tower where the game is set. The skills and controls work really well, and it reminds me of the old Tenchu: Stealth Assassins games, but with a few new tricks.
As good as the game is, there are a few flaws. The voice-audio for the guards becomes repetitive, and sometimes the guards will get stuck, making advancing unseen difficult. If you come unprepared to the final fight it’s almost impossible to complete. In spite of this, the game still has a great story, beautifully designed visual cut-scenes, loads of different enemy types, and a likeable main character. Styx: Master of Shadows is easily worth the price of £24.99, and highly recommended for those who love stealth gameplay.

I played: 35 Hours, Full Game
The level design and weird story kept me playing a game I wouldn't normally play.
Constant reloads which are frustrating on certain levels, and the final fight is incredibly tricky if you've not prepared beforehand.
