However, if you want to experience the game in all of its visual majesties, you should greatly consider buying it on any of the other available platforms because, at least from a visual point of view, the Switch version seems like a shadow of its former self (pun intended).
An interesting game that doesn't wants to be 2019's GOTY but manages to entertain with its stealth/puzzles proposal.

Between the perfect gameplay, great story, and flawless presentation, Aragami is a stealth masterpiece. It's that simple.
People who find trial and error frustrating should be aware that they cannot save scum, and there are some pretty long checkpoints in the more complex levels. Overall, though, it's a fun game of shadows that stealth fans will appreciate.
Overall, despite Nightfall being a relatively short bit of DLC, it manages to pack in some fun challenges with the level design, and the combat is as satisfying as ever. I found the story to be nicely paced throughout the four levels and leaves you off just before the opening of Aragami. However, the DLC doesn't add much more to the game than the three new Shadow Techniques and is over once you've only just gotten into it.
It takes a while to get going and it has its fair share of annoying quirks, but as it progresses Aragami becomes a solid stealth game with a compelling story. The addition of extra DLC chapters gives the game a welcome boost in longevity, and though its temperamental mechanics prevent it becoming an unarguable gem, its stylish look and the range of abilities you acquire by the end mean fans of stealth games (and fans of stealth only) will still have a fun time with it. Eventually.
Aragami: Shadow Edition is all you could ask for and more from a game that is built on the mythology of shinobi. It may still have a few rough corners, but for a first stab on console that emphasises stealth, patience and bloody retribution? It's a superb experience with plenty to say thanks to its included Nightfall expansion.
It was never a ground-breaking game per se, but it is well put together and worth checking out.
Harking back to the stealth games of old, Aragami: Shadow Edition will force you to think your way through. Some clunky controls aside, it's well worth your time — especially if you were a fan of the old Tenchu series.
With its methodical, unforgiving gameplay, Aragami: Shadow Edition is not for everyone. However, it doesn't try to be. It's aimed squarely at the Tenchu crowd, with whom it should be a hit. If you're a younger gamer who's never tried a true stealth game, Aragami is a great place to start.
Even though the main game wraps up the story nicely, albeit with a fairly predictable ending, now that we've seen it's possible to both add depth to the characters and their lore, and push the gameplay to the next level with the Nightfalls DLC, we want more.
Rarely was there a moment where the game felt unfair. Aragami: Shadow Edition is a good time with some minor issues. For people who are missing stealth actions games reminiscent of Tenchu, this could fit the bill.
The game has its own limitations and weaknesses like limited A.I and it doesn't feel very tight. however, the gameplay experience can be quite addictive once you submit to its rhythm. the storytelling is also very well done and carefully structured. the technical performance for this version is not perfect though.

Enemies exhibit nothing in the way of complex behavior, but that doesn't make pushing through a group of them, silently killing as you go, any less satisfying. Aragami is a stealth game out of time that could have been quite beloved in 2006. Today, however, it will have to settle for pretty all right.
Those looking for the quintessential stealth experience, will not find it in Aragami: Shadow Edition. That being said, this is definitely an enjoyable, and unique take on the genre, albeit, one that's a bit light on content and depth.
Aragami is not for everyone, especially casual fans of the genre; it's too demanding. Those of you who truly relish the hunt and welcome the challenge, though, will surely find that Aragami: Shadow Edition has what you're looking for.
With so many highlights like collectibles, skills, skins and additional story chapters, Aragami: Shadow Edition has much to be enjoyed. At its core, Aragami is a game about redemption and choice that is reflected throughout. Those qualities make it a worthwhile experience for any players in search of a compelling story and attention to detail.
Aragami, a vengeful spirit with the power to control the shadows is back. This time with quality DLC, two new assassins and more shadow skills.

Aragami: Shadow Edition is an extremely pleasant and rewarding experience that, in addition to rekindling the flame of the stealth genre, honors several of its greatest titles. Its mechanics and plot are extremely well done and each new visit to some particular stage can offer dozens of new possibilities. This experience, which can be in single-player or co-op, deserves to be played by all.

For fans of good, old-fashioned stealth, it's a bit of a no-brainer, really.
