Styx: Shards of Darkness

For modern gamers who feel like the stealth genre has gotten too easy and muddled with action-adventure tropes, Styx: Shards of Darkness offers a welcome throwback to the good old days of pure sneak-based gameplay. You play as Styx, a fourth-wall-breaking (think Deadpool) goblin who must venture through a variety of mythical landscapes to assassinate key targets and acquire vast quantities of a magical substance called amber. In this game, combat is greatly restricted, meaning if you get spotted, you’re likely a split second away from instant death. Sneaking, cloning yourself, setting traps and creating distractions are the name of the game in Styx: SoD. And though it’s a difficult adventure that strips you of the genre’s modern-day safety nets, it’s a superb experience for hard-core stealth fans who want a challenge. — Robert Carnevale
