Shadow Tactics brings back the style of the legendary Commandos with controlling the character from a top-down perspective.
At the moment, Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun is being heavily discounted on Steam (85%). You should quickly download to experience one of the best stealthy action games on Steam.
Having the context in the 17th century in Japan, Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun will bring you back to the feudal era, where the island nation is still under Shogun rule. After many bloody struggles, a strongest Shogun unified the vassals. He aspires to maintain peace and stability throughout Japan. And to do this, he recruited a team of 5-member assassins with the task of assassinating the rebel forces, eliminating all potentials that threaten the power of the Shogun.
From here on, the game begins with your mission to control this group of assassins. The gameplay of Shadown Tactics is in the style of the legendary Commandos with controlling the character with a view from above.
Each member of the group will have different styles and abilities. Hayato is a true ninja, he can silently kill a target with shuriken or distract the opponent by throwing stones. Possessing superhuman trapping skill, Yuki can kill anyone by dragging subjects into deadly traps.
Mugen is a true samurai, he is stronger and more agile than anyone and is also the strongest fighter in one-on-one confrontation. Aiko, a female assassin who can use her beauty to disguise and deceive the weak. Even when she couldn’t do that, she could still throw tear gas powder to confuse her opponent. The last member of this killer squad is Takuma, an elite sniper. Although Takuma‘s melee skills were very weak, but when holding a gun and aiming, it was difficult for anyone to survive through the first series.
Of course, the enemies in Shadow Tactics are not dreamers that you can easily destroy one after another. Each guard in Shadow Tactics holds extremely dangerous positions, constantly patrolling and ready to cover his teammates. That is why the player has to come up with very complex attack plans that allow the assassins group to defeat many targets at once.
Sometimes in order to perform a task, you have to come up with many different plans for each stage. When you fail at a certain thing, you must change your combat plan immediately. Remember that as long as one member does not keep up with his teammates, the soldiers will be noticed and make the challenge of the game absolutely more difficult.
With a thoughtful and attractive gameplay by spectacular action, Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun is indeed a great Christmas gift for the fans of Commandos. In a new coat, the once legendary has been reappeared with a completely different ninja style, an oriental style.
