I am torn. A part of me is enjoying reliving through Skyrim and making different choices this time around. However every time I bump into an old bug or the game crashes on me, I sigh and the whole thing seems a lot cheaper. Why are all the listed changes to the game cosmetic improvements to lighting? It leaves a slight taste of making a quick buck while everyone waits for Elder Scrolls VI.
In the end Styx: Shards of Darkness isn’t a terrible game. Sadly several elements stop it from reaching the greatness it could have had, like bad platforming, AI getting stuck during patrols, a story that doesn’t engage and wobbly voice acting all keep Styx in the firmly good section
Three factions might seem very light when considering the vast armies in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, but considering you need to learn every unit counter as quickly as possible, you will be glad you are only learning three factions and not more.
