Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun

Shadow Tactics is a hardcore tactical stealth game set in Japan around the Edo period. 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. The group is composed of very different personalities. Working together as a team seems impossible at first. Yet over the course of many missions, trust is won and friendships are made. 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. Samurai Mugen prefers a more powerful approach and can defeat more fiends at one time, but thus also forfeiting flexibility.

Decent game, but the intro with the loud crying sound effect is rather annoying. Here's how to disable it:
1. Right-click the game in your library and click Properties
2. Click Local Files and then click Browse...
3. Navigate to Shadow Tactics_Data/StreamingAssets/movies
4. Rename or delete mimimi_logo_boot_up_00.ogg

This is a rare game from an almost extinct genre. Clone of Commandos series from the 90s, but instead of world war setting, we got a feudal japan which is surprisingly works very well. The game mechanic is great too, if you played other games in the same genre such as Commandos, Desperados, or Robin Hood, you'll feel right at home. Usually I don't care much about the story, same like in Commandoes, but the story Shadow Tactics is more than decent, I enjoy it, and it has some twists as well.
The game is tough, but very satisfying. People say each mission needs 2-3 hours to complete, but I took 4-6 hours each mission because what I like about the genre is I can took my time, and feel the satisfaction of eliminating all enemies on map, stealthy..
100/200
thats not the score, its how many times i QuickSave/QuickLoad on every mission

Yes, I do recommend it. The story is not complex but has a few twists here and there. The main point of the game is all the different ways you have available to accomplish your objectives. It can be very frustrating sometimes when you fail because didn't get the timing right or your plan simply didn't work out, forcing you to reload and retry the same part over and over again. If see yourself experiencing that too many times, it probably means you're not playing as intended, it is still possible but will be way harder than other approaches. For example, the last mission is incredibly difficult and will easily take over an hour to complete with the most obvious way but less than 30 if you do know the tricks.
I finished all levels by constantly experimenting without looking at any guides. A lot of people seem to compare this game with Commando but I never played it so I wouldn't know the similarities. Anyways, I bought it during a big sale in September for only 4 EUR, it was too tempting.

I randomly bought this game without knowing what it was about. This is a good game though, I enjoy every second playing this game

I just finished it and wow, what an incredible game!
So many ways to complete each mission, and the story was engaging! You get to hear character conversations telling more about themselves even in the middle of missions!
I really enjoyed this one and now, I am moving on to Aiko's Choice!
