It is difficult to recommend City of the Shroud. It offered so much but delivers very little.

City of Shroud is an special tactical RPG with unique art style, amazing story and narration, nice characters and fun co-op. but beside these good aspects, gameplay has some issues in AI or combat mechanic that could be much better. if you are looking for a fun co-op experience with unique art style and beautiful story, City of Shroud is a good choice that worth your time.

With City of the Shroud, the premise is far better than the execution. The five different sides of the story is by far one of the best parts but is buried far too often in meaningless fetch quests and mediocre writing. The combat system would be better served if it was turn-based and deeper, as spamming is simply far more effective and not particularly fun.
