In embracing a more old-fashioned approach to stealth gameplay, Aragami: Shadow Edition makes itself standout but it also limits itself.
Aragami - Shadow Edition is a third person stealth action game with a unique art style, simple gameplay mechanics and a compelling plot which is bound to captivate Nintendo Switch players.

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).
Overall, Aragami: Shadow Edition delivers what it sets out to. An immensely good stealth-based adventure. While the rest of the game isn’t anything spectacular, stealth fans looking for a challenge will find one with this game. If you’re unfamiliar with the genre, or aren’t too keen to it normally, the story and game play won’t be enough to make it worth it, and the art and music won’t be enough to keep you invested. And the price won’t help justify it for many either.
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.
If you can look past some low-budget graphics, there's a nice stealth experience waiting for you in Aragami.
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.
