A summary of the critical opinion for this game is coming soon.

Nic Rowen (Destructoid)

7/10

“And really, pleasant surprises are what we’re talking about with Styx: Shards of Darkness. Don’t let the reduced price tag or the fact that Styx’s previous titles aren’t exactly household names fool you. Once you get past the slightly budget look of the UI and occasional control jank, there is a solid core of a pretty damn good stealth game here. Give him a chance, and Styx might just steal your heart (only to pawn it at a fraction of its value, the little bastard).”

7.5/10

“Shards of Darkness is a fine sequel to the unexpected and great Master of Shadows. It’s more ambitious, but this results in some other aspects not feeling as polished as they should.”

7/10

“A decent stealth experience, but the AI tends to sour the experience, as does the occasional camera angle issue.”
