Admirably open levels that reward exploration means there's high replay value if you're prepared to overlook the back-tracking.

7.2 / 10.0
Leif Johnson

Styx gets its hardcore stealth right, but its controls and platform elements fall short.

A challenging, well-designed stealth game only let down by irritating combat and a lack of visual flair.
