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.

Aragami: Shadow Edition is a top-notch stealthy, almost puzzle/adventure hybrid game that allows you to play through zones the way you want. You can teleport from shadow to shadow or sneak and crouch or simply stealth kill all that get in your way. The game rewards all forms of play especially if you stick to that plan all the way through the chapter.

Overall, the game comes in as a previous release that was ported to the Nintendo Switch, and it is a very well made stealth game.

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.

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.

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.

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.
